  • Brandon Aiyuk A Quality Start In Week 12

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk faces a New Orleans Saints defense that is allowing the ninth-most receiving yards to opposing fantasy WRs in Week 12. The Saints coverage is graded as 21st-best in the NFL by PFF. However, the Saints' shutdown cornerback Marshon Lattimore is back at practice after missing every game since Week 5. If he can play this week, the Saints pass coverage could be much improved. Aiyuk is on a hot streak, having finished as a WR2 or higher in four of his past five games. He has caught touchdown passes in three of those games and caught multiple touchdown passes in two of them. With the 49ers offense catching fire recently, Aiyuk has the potential to find the end zone again, making him a quality start in Week 12.

  • Brandon Aiyuk Scores Two Touchdowns On Monday Night Football

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk caught two passes for 20 yards and two touchdowns in the Niners' 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football. Aiyuk was on the field for almost all of San Francisco's first-team snaps and led the team in routes run. He was targeted four times and only ended up with two catches, but he made the most of them. His second quarter touchdown down the middle of the field gave the Niners a lead they never surrendered. The 24-year-old has found the end zone in two of the last three games and is tied for sixth amongst WRs in touchdowns.

  • Brandon Aiyuk Likely To Continue Hot Streak

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looks to continue his second-half surge against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. After a modest start to the season, Aiyuk blew up in Week 6, catching eight passes for 83 yards and scoring two touchdowns to finish as the WR4 in PPR. Since then, he's finished as a top 20 WR twice and as the WR28 last week. Now he faces the Cardinals, who are allowing the tenth-most yards through the air to opponents and the seventh-most receptions to fantasy WRs. Aiyuk should be expected to finish as a WR2-3 this weekend.

  • Brandon Aiyuk Is Clutch On Sunday

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was clutch for this offense during Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He converted multiple third downs, which was huge for this offense. The 24-year-old hauled in six of his seven targets for 84 yards in the 22-16 victory. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo leaned on Aiyuk in this game and it worked out for the team. The 49ers clearly want to keep Aiyuk involved on a weekly basis, so he should be a fine WR2 going forward.
