News: 3 hours agoAiyuk caught two of three targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Jets.
Spin: Aiyuk had a minimal impact in his NFL debut, as just two 49ers receivers were afforded more than three targets. It's a bit disappointing for the first-round pick, but now that he's healthy, he should be able to carve out an increased role. Deebo Samuel could return in Week 4, though, so Aiyuk will look to establish himself this Sunday against the Giants. However, it may be Nick Mullens under center if Jimmy Garoppolo isn't recovered from a high-ankle sprain.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: San Francisco selected Aiyuk with the 25th pick of April's draft. Aiyuk comes in at 6-foot, 205 pounds with 4.50 40-yard speed, as well as terrific explosiveness and route-running ability. The Arizona State product's best asset is his post-catch production (10.5 RAC in 2019), which helped him to plenty of big plays at ASU. Aiyuk doesn't have a ton of competition for early-career snaps, but he should be considered a long shot for weekly fantasy value in a super-run-heavy 49ers' offense that will lean heavily on George Kittle and Deebo Samuel. He's worth only a late-round pick.
