2019 Outlook: Dante Pettis

Dante Pettis has the chance to be the No. 1 receiver for the 49ers this season, and he's worth drafting as a high-end No. 3 Fantasy option in Round 6 in most leagues. In 2018 as a rookie, Pettis showed off his skills during a solid four-game stretch from Weeks 12-15 when he averaged 18.0 PPR points over that span. He did that without Jimmy Garoppolo (ACL), but he also was without Deebo Samuel, Jalen Hurd and Jordan Matthews, who were receivers added in San Francisco this offseason. We still expect Pettis to have a prominent role, but you might not want to overvalue him just because of those four games. Hopefully, being paired with Garoppolo will help Pettis have a solid sophomore campaign, and he has the chance to become a weekly starter in all formats.
