San Francisco 49ers' star rookie wideout Deebo Samuel has been generating plenty of buzz prior to Super Bowl LIV. And for good reason, as he's proven to be an integral part of San Francisco's offense over the back half of the season.

With Deebo's over/under for receiving yards currently set at 54.5 on FanDuel Sportsbook, let's break down some prop bets on the rookie wideout.

Deebo Samuel Prop Bet

Over his last three games, Deebo is averaging 63.3 receiving yards per contest, though he's been held under 50 receiving yards in two of those three games.

However, Samuel has been absurdly productive when considering how infrequently Jimmy Garoppolo has thrown the ball in the playoffs. Garoppolo only has 27 combined pass attempts through two postseason games, and Samuel's nine targets give him an impressive 33.3 percent target share.

Interestingly, Samuel is also averaging 27.3 rushing yards per contest during that three game stretch, seeing at least one carry in all three games. With Samuel's prop bet for combined rushing and receiving yards being set at 72.5, his recent output on the ground could certainly give him a chance at reaching 73 yards from scrimmage.

It looks like the 49ers want to get him the ball early and often, and Samuel should be in for a heavy workload in Super Bowl LIV.

And if you're a huge believer in Deebo today, he's also available at +4500 to win Super Bowl MVP.
