San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is meeting with the 49ers Monday, June 24, according to ESPN's Ryan Clark.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk is seeking a long-term contract, but the team is not willing to match his asking price at this time. Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if he will be playing for the 49ers or another team this season. He should still be a weekly starting option no matter where he plays.

San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy said he believes he has improved during offseason workouts because he is more experienced.
Huddle Up: Purdy has played well since entering the NFL and should have similar success this season. He has plenty of pass catchers to work with on the offense and can be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 quarterback depending on the size of the fantasy league.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (core) said he lost around 30 pounds this offseason after undergoing core muscle surgery but has started training again and feels close to full strength. He said he would like to add around 10 more pounds to feel like he is in playing shape.
Huddle Up: Kittle has been one of the most consistent tight ends over the last several years and will be a No. 1 fantasy tight end again in 2024 if he is healthy.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is a player the 49ers wants to sign to an extension but are not willing to match his asking price at this point, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The negotiations are not believed to be dead at this point.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has expressed frustration with his contract situation multiple times this offseason, but it seems like he will stay with the 49ers for at least one more season. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues no matter where he plays in 2024.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk told Washington Commanders QB Jayden Daniels over FaceTime that the 49ers "don't want me back" in a video that surfaced Monday, June 17. Aiyuk is currently seeking a new deal with the 49ers.
Huddle Up: That statement could have several meanings. He could mean the 49ers don't want to sign him to an extension. Either way, his future in San Francisco has become even more cloudy. Managers will want to monitor the situation, but if he's on the field, he's a rock solid WR2.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is scheduled to be fined for skipping the mandatory minicamp, and the team does not appear interested in forgiving the fines at this point, according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk missed minicamp because of his contract situation, and it seems like the two sides are not close to an agreement at this time. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Aiyuk reports for training camp or the team looks to trade him at some point. Aiyuk will be a starter no matter where he plays in 2024 and probably will be a starting option most weeks.

San Francisco 49ers WR Ricky Pearsall is "doing a really good job" and has "really impressed (the coaching staff)" with how he has looked during offseason work, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. "He's doing a really good job. He's got really good hands, so he always catches it. He's rarely going to have a drop. We're giving him a lot of reps, he's getting a lot of different routes, he's trying all the positions. We've been really impressed with how he's started off," Shanahan told The Athletic's David Lombardi.
Huddle Up: Pearsall is taking advantage of Brandon Aiyuk's absence and building early chemistry with Brock Purdy, who will almost certainly be his quarterback for the next several years. It may be too much to ask for him to be fantasy-relevant in 2024 with Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle and Christian McCaffrey all getting heavy volume, but dynasty leaguers should feel great about landing Pearsall in the early second round of rookie drafts.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk did not report for the start of the mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 4, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has been looking for a new contract or a trade this offseason and has decided not to take part in the minicamp this week. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Aiyuk will report for training camp.

San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey reportedly signed a two-year extension worth $38 million on Tuesday, June 4. McCaffrey will reportedly receive an additional $8 million over what he was scheduled to make in the first two years while adding $24 million in guarantees, according to sources.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey was set to become a free agent at the end of the 2025 season, so this deal likely ensures he will remain in the fantasy-friendly environment that is Kyle Shanahan's offense until his early 30s, The soon-to-be 28-year-old is coming off a season in which he won Offensive Player of the Year and his first rushing title. As has been the case multiple times in his career, McCaffrey is an easy choice to go No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts again this summer.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (core) is recovering from offseason surgery but said he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is reportedly seeking a contract extension that is equal to or better than the one that Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown recently received, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. St. Brown's deal is expected to give him $28 million annually over a three-year period.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has been holding out of the team's voluntary workouts due to disappointment over his current contract after asking for a trade earlier this offseason and may not report to the 49ers until the beginning of training camp. If he remains with San Francisco, he will be an integral part of their offense and should be viewed as a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey's absence from organized team activities is not related to his contract situation, according to a source.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey likely will be on the field for the mandator minicamp in a few weeks, but fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He is one of the most valuable options in fantasy football and is a must-start option when healthy.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is still in the team's long-term plans as they try to sign him to a long-term deal.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk established himself as an elite receiver last year, and entering a contract year only supports his WR1 candidacy.

Louisville RB Isaac Guerendo was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 129th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Guerendo probably will not have a big role right away with Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell in front of him on the depth chart. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation, but Guerendo likely will not be selected in drafts outside keeper leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel has been receiving trade interest from the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills, but neither team appears likely to acquire him, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk have both been involved in rumors this week, but it seems like the 49ers will keep both at this point. Samuel will be a valuable part of any offense he is a part of in 2024 and will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel appears more likely to be traded at this point than teammate Brandon Aiyuk. According to Boston Sports Journal's Mike Giardi, the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots are the two teams showing the most interest in acquiring Samuel - presumably with their selections at the top of the second round.
Huddle Up: Samuel landing with the Patriots is not an outcome fantasy managers want to see, as the combination of Jacoby Brissett and Drake Maye is highly unlikely to maximize his skill set. A trade with Buffalo would be more interesting, but the Bills already have a Swiss Army knife receiver in Curtis Samuel. Deebo Samuel would be the most attractive Buffalo receiver to draft, but he will likely struggle to maintain the same WR2 value he currently enjoys with San Francisco.

Florida WR Ricky Pearsall was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 31st overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Pearsall thrived in college thanks to his reliable hands and route running ability. He enters the league with plenty of snaps under his belt, and while he probably won't be a fantasy starter, he could carve out a modest role as a rookie.

San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy said he would be open for the team to add more designed runs for him as well as some zone read plays in the playbook.
Huddle Up: Purdy has rushed for only 157 yards in his two years and likely will not see a big jump in his running total next season. He is coming off a terrific 2023 season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (core) underwent surgery this offseason and is expected to be ready for training camp, according to sources Monday, March 25.

Washington Commanders TE Logan Thomas was released on Friday, March 1.
Huddle Up: Thomas has put together some nice seasons - including 55 catches for 496 yards and three touchdowns in 2023 - as a tight end since making the transition from college quarterback years ago. Now 32 years of age, he will likely have to settle for a backup job somewhere in the league. Washington will now head into the new league year with John Bates and Cole Turner, although it would not be a surprise if the team added a starting-caliber option in free agency and/or the draft.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk led all receivers with at least 40 catches with a 70.5-percent receiving success rate in 2023.
Huddle Up: The stat requires the player to receive 40 percent of the yards needed on first down, 60 percent of the necessary yards on second down and 100 percent of the yards on third and fourth downs with targets the denominator. Aiyuk is in line to get paid this offseason with one year left on his deal. He ended the year as the WR13 in PPR leagues, and that doesn't quite feel like his ceiling. He's a slam-dunk WR2 in next year's drafts.
