Scouting report

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Arizona Cardinals

Dante Pettis was targeted three times last week but failed to catch a ball. Aside from a couple of random touchdowns, Pettis has been largely an afterthought in a disappointing season. Until he starts producing regularly, he’s safe to drop in the vast majority of leagues.

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Seattle Seahawks

Dante Pettis caught a 21-yard touchdown last week against the Cardinals, but fantasy owners shouldn’t get too excited just yet. While he remains a player with long-term upside, it was his only target on the day and he has played just 30% of the team’s offensive snaps since the 49ers traded for Emmanuel Sanders two weeks ago. Pettis is worth stashing in deep dynasty formats, but he’s droppable in most redraft leagues.

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Arizona Cardinals

Dante Pettis caught just one pass for five yards last week. He’s been bitterly disappointing this season, and while he still holds some value as a stash option in deep leagues just in case he gets it figured out, he’s far too risky to hold in the majority of formats, let alone start. Pettis is a disappointing player on a team that hasn’t been putting up much in the way of passing stats. It’s time to cut bait on him.

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Carolina Panthers

Dante Pettis saw 92% of the team’s offensive snaps last week against Washington, and while he failed to record a target, it’s a hard game to judge him on given the weather and field conditions. The 49ers only threw the ball 21 times and 12 targets went to running backs and tight ends. Pettis is too risky to have in lineups, and the addition of Emmanuel Sanders this past week via trade doesn’t help his chances for increased looks, but his playing time over the past few games and his talent make him worth stashing in large leagues. This week is a bad matchup, however, even if we knew he’d get targets. The Panthers are fourth in the league in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Sit him.

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Washington Redskins

Dante Pettis is quietly coming around. He only had 45 yards on three receptions last week against the Rams, but he was second on the team with six targets and he leads all 49ers’ wide receivers in snaps over the past two games. Pettis’ talent should win out long-term, and he should still be rostered in deep leagues or in situations where fantasy owners have a bench spot to burn. Because of his lack of production, it’s not wise to put Pettis in your lineup just yet, even in what could be a reasonably good matchup against Washington, but keep an eye on him. There could be light at the end of the tunnel.

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Los Angeles Rams

Dante Pettis only caught one pass for 11 yards on Monday night and was targeted just three times in a blowout victory over the Browns. However, there’s reason for some long-term optimism. He was second among 49ers receivers in snaps and if his playing time continues to grow, he has the big-play ability to produce. He’s still far too risky to have in your lineup at this point, but is worth adding to deeper rosters just in case he turns it around.

SF WR Dante Pettis - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Cleveland Browns

Dante Pettis only had 20 yards against the Steelers before the bye last week, but he caught the game-winning touchdown and hauled in four of the five balls thrown his way. Pettis was dreadful the first two weeks, as he saw only 3% of the snaps in Week 1 and failed to register a target in Week 2. However, he’s been on the field for over 40% of the snaps in his last two games and he’s worth keeping an eye on in deep leagues where you can afford the roster spot.
