Good Morning Faithful,

Here are the top 49ers headlines for Monday, June 21.

New and Notable Ranking the NFL's Top 10 Pass-Catching Tandems

Ahead of the 2021 season, Pro Football Focus is ranking everything from position groups to players under the age of 25. In the analytics site's most recent evaluation, analyst Anthony Treash looked at the NFL's top pass-catching duos. Rounding out the Top 10, George Kittle and Deebo Samuel were named to the list for their potential when both are on the field and healthy. Here's what Treash had to say:

"A broken foot derailed a portion of Kittle's 2020 season, but he still managed to generate the third-best receiving grade among all tight ends to bring his grade since 2018 to the No. 1 spot at the position. He has generated 2.92 yards per route run over that three-year span, which is over half a yard more than any other tight end in the NFL. Yes, even ahead of Kansas City's Travis Kelce.

"Injuries also got in Samuel's way in 2020, but when healthy, he was exactly what we expected: an after-the-catch phenom. He has produced 9.8 yards after the catch per reception in his two NFL seasons. Not only does that lead all wide receivers, but it leads the group by a substantial margin of 2.5 yards. He has also broken 28 total tackles in regular-season play over that span, tying for the fifth-most at the position. Remember, he played only six games in 2020."
