San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis received additional reps during team drills due to injuries to Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk and he has taken advantage of his opportunities, according to manager John Lynch.
'A week into camp, the consistency just clicked and we could see from day one his mentality was different. He was doing the things that were asked of him. The guy that we were so excited to draft and add to our team started to show up on that field. He's got to do it when it counts, but every indication is that he's going to be a big part of what we're doing,' Lynch said.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis is impressing at practice by making catches in traffic over the middle as he competes for a roster spot in 2020, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Huddle Up: There are plenty of openings in the 49ers' receiving corps with Deebo Samuel (foot), Jalen Hurd (knee) and Richie James (wrist) all expected to miss at least the start of the season. Still, Pettis isn't worth drafting in anything but the deepest of leagues as a late-round flier.
