Draft note
by John Paulsen
The 49ers traded up to snag Aiyuk with the 25th pick in the first round. GM John Lynch said that they had Aiyuk and CeeDee Lamb “almost evenly matched” on their draft board, and would have been content to take him with the 13th overall pick had they gotten stuck earlier in the round. Aiyuk is a big YAC guy and was always projected to start from day one, but Deebo Samuel’s foot fracture will likely put more on Aiyuk’s plate early in the 2020 season. He’s being drafted as a WR5/WR6 but I have him ranked as a low-end WR4 who could finish as a WR3 or higher if things go sideways with Samuel’s recovery. It doesn’t hurt that Kevin Zatloukal’s WR Success Model gives Aiyuk a 56% chance of a top 36 finish within his first three seasons. According to the model, he has the third-best chances among this year’s rookie class.

SF WR Brandon Aiyuk - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Arizona Cardinals

Brandon Aiyuk had another great game last week against the Cowboys, catching nine balls for 73 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted 13 times and the offense seems to be running through him. Aiyuk now has 62 targets over his last five games and five touchdowns over his last six. He’s been one of the few offensive bright spots in a season marred by injuries.

This week, Aiyuk faces a Cardinals defense that ranks 31st in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. He’s a beast in a great matchup, and he should eat up tons of targets once again. He’s entering matchup-proof territory right now, producing regardless of matchup and regardless of quarterback. Start him.
