San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis is running out of time to prove his worth in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. 'The more he doesn't take advantage of his opportunities, the less opportunities he gets,' Shanahan said Tuesday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Pettis, a second-year pro, has caught just 11 of 24 targets this season for 109 yards and two touchdowns. He shouldn't be on rosters in anything shallower than 14- or 16-team leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Pettis has been targeted only 17 times this season and has been held to under 25 yards in four of his five games. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can keep Pettis on the bench.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: Pettis' role will shrink following the addition of WR Emmanuel Sanders. He can be kept in dynasty and keeper leagues, but he can be dropped in 10- and 12-team redraft leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught three of his six targets for 45 yards in a 20-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6.
Huddle Up: It was just the second time this year Pettis has caught multiple passes, and if you are looking for a silver lining, his six targets and 45 yards were both season highs. He still has the potential to emerge as a quality weapon for San Francisco, but he should not be near starting lineups right now.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis was able to post just one catch on 11 grabs on three targets in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Pettis has been limited to six receptions for 38 yards and one score through the first four outings. He has a ton of fantasy potential, but he cannot be trusted at this point. The 49ers travel to meet the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught four of his five targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Sadly, all of those marks are season highs. Pettis was quiet for most of the game, but his TD catch with 1:15 remaining was the game-winner and very much a "trust throw" from Jimmy Garoppolo as he split two defenders from about five yards away. It seems likely Pettis will eventually find his way back into head coach Kyle Shanahan's good graces and be fantasy relevant again soon, but he should be on waivers in most normal-sized leagues now. He'll have a chance to prove himself again after the team's Week 4 bye.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (calf) caught his only target for seven yards in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It's a bad day for a player many expected to be the team's top wide receiver, but head coach Kyle Shanahan noted afterward that Pettis entered the game as a backup in part because he was limited in practice Thursday due to a calf injury. Shanahan also told the media he hopes Pettis "continues to earn more time out there," further driving home a point he was trying to make to Pettis during the preseason. Pettis is a desperate WR3 play at best next week versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Pettis had a quiet training camp and preseason but is expected to be one of the starting receivers for the 49ers in Week 1. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start player in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Pettis is viewed as the 49ers' No. 1 receiver so seeing him up to full speed ahead of gameday is a promising sign. He can be started this week as a WR3 or a FLEX option.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis is listed as a No. 1 receiver on the team's unofficial depth chart heading into Week 1, starting opposite WR Marquise Goodwin.
Huddle Up: Pettis is also listed as the top punt returner, too. Head coach Kyle Shanahan challenged him during the preseason, looking for more consistency. Apparently the head coach is satisfied with the effort of Pettis. Look for Pettis to serve as a decent low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option if he can hang onto his starting job.
