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 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Brandon Aiyuk had three catches on six targets last week, ending up with 44 yards. Aiyuk struggled against a solid Dolphins secondary, and the 49ers passing offense struggled heavily in a lopsided loss. Jimmy Garoppolo and C.J. Beathard combined to complete just 46% of their passes and totaled one touchdown and a pair of interceptions. Aiyuk has been featured all over the offense, including running the ball, and expect the 49ers to continue to try and find ways to get the ball in his hands.

This week, Aiyuk has a tough matchup against the Rams, who rank number one in aFPA to opposing wide receivers this year. Aiyuk is risky with Deebo Samuel back in the lineup and George Kittle the primary target, but he’s also shown the ability to make big plays, giving him upside. Still, this probably isn’t the matchup to use him in and he should be considered a desperation play at WR3, at best.
