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.
