Draft note
by John Paulsen
Aiyuk missed four games due to injury and COVID-19, but when he played, he had a great run from Week 7 to Week 15, averaging 7.5 receptions for 95 yards and 0.67 touchdowns in six healthy games. That equates to 17.1 points per game (half-PPR), or top five numbers. Unfortunately, Deebo Samuel was only active for three of those games, while George Kittle was active for two. Aiyuk’s mid- to late-season production is encouraging, but his splits in the four games he played with both Samuel and Kittle are not: 16.3% target share, 15.9% reception share, 21.9% yards share and an 11.1% touchdown share. When applied to the 49ers’ 2020 passing numbers, that would work out to a 59-946-2.8 season (on 93 targets). His good route-running was confirmed by Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception, so we know he can play. But if Samuel and Kittle are both healthy, it’s unclear if Aiyuk is even a top-two target for whoever is quarterbacking the 49ers (probably Trey Lance). He’s the No. 27 receiver off the board which seems like fair value given the circumstances.

SF WR Brandon Aiyuk - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Philadelphia Eagles

Brandon Aiyuk had zero targets and was out-snapped by Trent Sherfield 27 to 26 last week against the Lions. It was a bitter disappointment for fantasy managers who drafted Aiyuk with the intention of him being at least a WR2 on their roster. The press hasn’t been good in the following days, and until we see that snap count go up and Aiyuk getting targets again, it’s hard to trust him in your lineup. We have him ranked around 50th this week, and recommend a wait-and-see approach if possible.
