49ers' Dante Pettis: Heading toward roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis may need to compete for a roster spot, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Unable to build on a successful finish to his rookie campaign, the 2018 second-round pick was limited to 11 catches in 11 games last season and didn't play a single snap in the playoffs. Coach Kyle Shanahan said he wants to see Pettis look like he's on a mission this offseason, but the selection of fellow wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk in the first round suggests the Niners aren't counting on much. With Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne considered roster locks, the 49ers figure to have a large group of WRs competing for three roster spots, including Pettis, Trent Taylor (foot), Jalen Hurd, Richie James, Jauan Jennings and Travis Benjamin (quad). The second-round pedigree could work in Pettis' favor, but even then he might be limited to a depth role.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Facing crucial offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said he wants to see Pettis "on a mission" this offseason, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Unable to build on a strong finish to his rookie campaign, Pettis was limited to 11 receptions and 313 offensive snaps in 2019, eventually serving as a healthy scratch on gamedays. Shanahan said the lack of playing time was based on an accumulation of factors, including a lack of intensity while running routes. Shanahan also hinted that the upcoming offseason could be a make-or-break one for Pettis' career, noting that he's seen some players "filter out" when they struggle to rebound from a sophomore slump. The 24-year-old wide receiver should at least have a chance to earn a significant role, as Deebo Samuel is the only locked-in starter for San Francisco's wide receiver group.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Healthy scratch for Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl against Kansas City, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis has had a dramatic fall from grace with the 49ers throughout his sophomore season, making his inactive status for Super Bowl LIV a fitting end to the 2019 campaign. Though the second-year wideout was active for the NFC Championship against the Packers, he didn't play any snaps during the contest.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Practices in full Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (illness) was a full practice participant Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Pettis brushed off the illness that sidelined him Thursday, or at the very least was able to gut it out and fit in every practice rep to wrap up the first week of Super Bowl prep. Considering he hasn't seen a target since Week 10, though, he's unlikely to make a splash versus the Chiefs on Feb. 2.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Returns from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (illness) returned to practice Friday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis only missed one day and should be healthy with plenty of time to spare before the Super Bowl. He was technically active for the NFC Championship Game, but he didn't actually play any snaps in a 37-20 win over the Packers. Any involvement in the Super Bowl would come as a modest surprise.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Under the weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis did not practice Thursday due to an illness, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Pettis will have a week and a half to return to full health ahead of the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, so there's not yet any reason to consider his availability in jeopardy. More pressingly, the second-year wideout has not recorded a snap on offense since Week 12 of the regular season. Having tumbled down to a depth role in San Francisco's receiver corps, Pettis will be an unlikely candidate to factor into the team's plans on offense even if he's at full strength.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Falls completely out of favor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis finished with 11 receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games during the regular season.

Pettis was the biggest disappointment for a 49ers squad that surged to the top of the NFC in 2019. The 23-year-old appeared to be turning into a fantasy factor over the final four weeks of the 2018 season, but he failed to build off of the momentum and seize a potential starting opportunity. Coach Kyle Shanahan questioned the sophomore's effort during training camp, and his statements rang true when the former second-round pick quickly lost his starting job and even return duties to less-proven wideouts. Pettis has flashed his potential at times, and while he remains under contract in San Francisco for the next two years, a change of scenery could benefit both sides after a disastrous season.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Returns to full participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis has been sidelined by a knee injury for two consecutive games, but he appears on pace to be available for the 49ers' Week 15 tilt against the Falcons. Pettis has played no more than 33 offensive snaps in a single contest since Week 7, however, so don't expect a sudden burst in production upon his return.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Sitting out Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers will be down two receivers in Pettis and Marquise Goodwin (knee/foot) in Week 14, but both players have been afterthoughts in coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive game plan of late. Even if Pettis shakes off the sprained knee in time for the Week 15 game against the Falcons, he likely won't be in line for more than a handful of snaps.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Pettis sat out Week 13's loss to the Ravens due to a lingering knee issue, and his status for Sunday's tilt against the Saints could come down to a game-time decision. The second-year pro plays a depth role in San Francisco's receiving corps. He hasn't seen more than three targets in a single game since Week 6.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Pettis missed the team's Week 13 contest against the Raiders and is expected to miss a second consecutive game in Week 14. However, he practiced on a side field Wednesday and upgraded that to limited participation Thursday. That said, even if he is ruled out for Sunday's contest, he is trending in the right direction.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Officially DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Although Pettis was spotted working out on a side field, his participation wasn't enough to be marked as limited. The second-year wideout isn't expected to suit up Sunday against the Saints, so Marquise Goodwin and Richie James could see slight upticks in usage.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Rehabbing on side Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) practiced on a side field Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis isn't expected to play Sunday against the Saints, and his inability to practice with the team aligns with that notion. The second-year pro likely won't have much responsibility when he returns to action, as Emmanuel Sanders, Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne are expected to lead the way.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Likely out another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) isn't expected to be available for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Pettis suffered a left knee sprain at practice last week and was unable to play during Sunday's loss to the Ravens. The 24-year-old played a minimal offensive role in the weeks leading up to the injury, so his availability is unlikely to impact the offense.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Won't face Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Baltimore, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis is believed to have suffered a knee sprain during Wednesday's practice, adding one more obstacle to a disappointing season. His absence won't have much impact on the 49ers' Week 13 game plan, as he played just nine snaps on offense the past two weeks.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis is believed to have sprained his left knee during the 49ers' practice Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The injury forced Pettis' early departure in Wednesday's practice and kept him sidelined Thursday, but after he recently underwent an evaluation, the 49ers determined the wideout wasn't dealing with a long-term concern. In any case, Pettis' status for Sunday's game against the Ravens has yet to be determined, but he shouldn't be expected to have a major role on offense even if he gains clearance for the contest. Pettis has logged just seven offensive snaps across the past two games.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Doesn't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Pettis injured himself in Wednesday's practice and was pretty likely to sit out just a day later. If he is able to return Friday, he would have a better chance to suit up against the Ravens.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Picks up left knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis injured his left knee at Wednesday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis suffered the injury during a special-teams drill and was eventually listed as a non-participant on the 49ers' first practice report of Week 13, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. Nothing more is known about the nature or severity of Pettis' health concern, meaning his status will continue to be monitored as the weekend draws closer. After a strong debut season for San Francisco, Pettis has tumbled down the depth chart at receiver in 2019, logging just seven offensive snaps in total over the past two weeks.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Active, but not used
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis was on the field for just seven snaps and went without a target in Sunday's 37-8 win over the Packers.

Seven snaps is an upgrade from the zero Pettis received last week against Arizona, but it has become apparent that the team no longer views him as part of the offensive gameplan. Barring an unforeseen change or injury to another wideout, the second-year man should be left on the wire heading into Week 13.

49ers' Dante Pettis: Playing Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettis (back) is listed as active Sunday against the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Available for all 10 of the 49ers games this season, Pettis hasn't made much of an impact when on the field in the previous nine, posting an 11-109-2 line on 24 targets. Top wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) is banged up at the moment, but Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne (and not Pettis) profited when the veteran was knocked out of the team's Week 10 loss to the Seahawks. As a result, Pettis may be relegated to a situational role yet again on this game day.
