San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk caught two passes for 12 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk scored his third TD of the season but was otherwise invisible as Kittle and Samuel got most of the looks. As long as that duo is healthy, Aiyuk isn't someone to trust in a starting role.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk hauled in three of his six targets for 44 yards in Week 5 versus the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Like his fellow receivers and tight ends, Aiyuk was a victim of some of the worst quarterback play of the weekend. With that said, the returns of Deebo Samuel and George Kittle from their respective injuries was always going to be a legitimate concern for those fantasy owners hoping they were on the verge of being able to consider him a weekly starter. Aiyuk should probably be considered a middling WR4 for the time being, including in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk hauled in two of his five targets for 18 yards and broke off a 38-yard run for a touchdown in Week 4 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk's run was a backward pass from Nick Mullens late in the first quarter and showed off the run-after-catch skill that made San Francisco trade up for him in April's draft. The first-round rookie broke two tackles within the first 10 yards of the run and capped it off by hurdling Eagles safety Marcus Epps right before waltzing into the end zone. The return of Deebo Samuel figures to make Aiyuk bench depth for fantasy purposes, but he could emerge as a fantasy starter again down the road if Samuel suffers a setback.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk's production 'might be a bit boom-or-bust from week to week' when TE George Kittle (knee) and WR Deebo Samuel (foot) return, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk showcased his versatility in Week 3, but he will undoubtedly lose touches when Kittle and Samuel are back in the mix. The rookie is better suited to be a DFS sleeper than a regular starter in traditional formats.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk caught five passes for 70 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 31 yards and one touchdown on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has served as the No. 1 receiver with Deebo Samuel sidelined and showed a good connection with Nick Mullens this week. He can be considered a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option next week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) is active for Week 2's game against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has a favorable matchup and is expected to be San Francisco's No. 1 receiver this week. He should be considered at least a flex option in all fantasy formats.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) was inactive in Week 1, but he is not even on the injury report this week. He was injured during camp, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said the rookie wanted to play against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk was selected 25th overall out of Arizona State in the NFL Draft. He is a good looking prospect with long-term keeper fantasy appeal. Aiyuk is worth a roster spot in deeper redraft leagues, too, but it might be a bit before he makes a splash.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) likely will be able to play in the team's Week 2 game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should keep an eye on Aiyuk's participation during the week to see if he will be able to play. Aiyuk likely would have a big role in the passing game if he is active and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option.
