49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Won't play in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk, who suffered a high-ankle sprain in this past Saturday's win over the Cardinals, won't play in Sunday's season finale against the Seahawks, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Aiyuk thus finishes the campaign with a team-high 60 catches (on 96 targets) for 748 yards and five TDs in 12 games. Looking ahead to next season, the 2020 first-rounder will bring solid fantasy upside to the table, but the 49ers offense could look a bit different next season, once the team's offseason personnel moves shake out.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Can't get going in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk recorded one reception on two targets for 15 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals. He added one rushing attempt for 16 yards.

C.J. Beathard completed only 13 passes, leaving most of the 49ers' receiving options with little volume. He targeted wide receivers on only four occasions, providing Aiyuk with very little chance to produce. The result was Aiyuk's lowest reception total of his career. It also snapped a very productive stretch for him, as he had topped 70 receiving yards in each of his last six games. With Nick Mullens' (elbow) season officially over and Jimmy Garoppolo unlikely to return for a Week 17 matchup against the Seahawks, Aiyuk is likely to have shaky quarterback play to close the campaign.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Scores seventh TD in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk caught nine of 13 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-33 loss to the Cowboys.

Aiyuk once again led the team in targets and receptions as he surpassed 70 receiving yards for the sixth consecutive game. He also scored his fourth touchdown in the last five outings with a short score off a touch pass in the second quarter. The dynamic rookie continues to produce excellent numbers despite subpar quarterback play and now has 773 receiving yards to go along with seven total touchdowns. Aiyuk will look to add to his totals in next Saturday's divisional matchup with the Cardinals.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Dominates in Samuel's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk caught 10 of 16 targets for 119 yards during Sunday's 23-15 loss to Washington.

Deebo Samuel (hamstring) left the game on the second play from scrimmage, leaving Aiyuk to carry the passing attack. That he did, setting new career highs in targets, catches and receiving yards as the rest of the offense struggled to move the ball. This career game continues an excellent run of form for Aiyuk, who is now averaging 99.0 yards and 7.2 catches per game over his last five. The rookie will look to continue his ascent next Sunday against the Cowboys.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Excels in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk secured five of nine targets for 95 yards and a touchdown while also returning one punt for 16 yards in the 49ers' 34-24 loss to the Bills on Monday night.

The rookie had missed the Week 12 win over the Rams after testing positive for COVID-19 back on Nov. 20, and he showed no ill effects from the layoff while pacing the 49ers in receiving yards and tying fellow wideout Deebo Samuel for the team lead in targets. Aiyuk put his elite athleticism on display on more than one occasion Monday night, and despite the defending NFC champions' playoff hopes dimming further with the loss, it will be interesting to see what Aiyuk and Samuel can do with an extended stretch of games together to finish off the season, especially if Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) manages to return to action. Aiyuk's next chance to pad his rookie-season numbers comes in a Week 14 battle against Washington in San Francisco's temporary home of State Farm Stadium in Arizona.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Feeling good ahead of Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite a positive COVID-19 test Nov. 20, Aiyuk told Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News on Friday that he's "feeling fresh physically and mentally" in advance of Monday night's game against the Bills.

Aiyuk missed one game as a result, but with three full days of practice under his belt he's set to resume his standing as one of the 49ers' top receivers. While Deebo Samuel is the clear No. 1 option, Aiyuk has averaged 12.7 YPC and 8.0 YPT while scoring three touchdowns on his 56 targets this season.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Returns to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers activated Aiyuk (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

As expected, Aiyuk is back on the active roster after spending two different stints on the reserve list. He hasn't played since Week 10, but at that point, he had recorded touchdowns in three of his last four games. Aiyuk will look to reconnect with Nick Mullens this Monday against the Bills.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: In line for activation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers are expected to activate Aiyuk (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Aiyuk spent two stints on the reserve list, but it was never revealed whether he tested positive for the virus or was merely a close contact of someone who did. In any case, as long as he's back on the active roster by Thursday, he'll join his teammates for practice as the 49ers prepare for Monday's game against the Bills.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Officially out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk won't be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Sunday's game against the Rams, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Aiyuk's next chance to play will be Week 13 against the Bills, a Monday night game. Deebo Samuel, Richie James and Kendrick Bourne figure to command most of the work in three-wide sets Sunday.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Looking doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday that he hasn't heard anything about Aiyuk (reserve/COVID-19) potentially being able to play in Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Shanahan said LT Trent Williams has an outside chance, perhaps hinting that Aiyuk has no chance at all. The 49ers seem to be preparing as if the rookie will miss the game.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Returns to reserve/COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed Aiyuk on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Along with Aiyuk, the 49ers also designated tight end Daniel Helm and offensive tackle Trent Williams, marking the second time both Aiyuk and Williams have landed on the list. At this time, it's not known whether Aiyuk tested positive for COVID-19 or was deemed a close contact of someone who did. If it's the latter case, Aiyuk should have a good chance at gaining clearance for the 49ers' next game Nov. 29 versus the Rams, as the team is on bye Week 11.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Scores fifth TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk caught seven of 14 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown while losing eight yards on his only rushing attempt during Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Saints.

Aiyuk got off to a strong start and opened the scoring with a four-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. He drew a whopping 37-percent target share as he received nearly three times the number of looks as the next-closest wideout on the team. Aiyuk now has five touchdowns in his last seven games and has averaged 93.7 yards over his last three. Deebo Samuel (hamstring) could return after the upcoming bye week, but Aiyuk should still retain a sizable role in the passing game after demonstrating his capabilities with his teammate sidelined.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Comes off reserve/COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

After teammate Kendrick Bourne was placed on the list Wednesday following his positive COVID-19 test, Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams were added to the list later in the day when the three were identified to be in close contact with Bourne. All four players were held out of Thursday's 34-17 loss to the Packers, even though Bourne proceeded to test negative Thursday and Friday, seemingly confirming that the initial test result was a false positive. Along with Aiyuk, the other three players were reinstated Friday, so the San Francisco offense should have more firepower on hand when the team returns to action Nov. 15 in New Orleans.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed Aiyuk on the reserve/ COVID-19 list Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The hits keep coming for the 49ers, who placed Kendrick Bourne on the COVID-19 list earlier Wednesday due to a positive test result. Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel (hamstring) have been deemed to be high-risk close contacts of Bourne, meaning they'll be sidelined Thursday against the Packers. With that trio sidelined, San Francisco may be down to just two available wide receivers -- Trent Taylor and Richie James -- in Week 9, but the latter player is questionable to play himself due to an ankle injury.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Another impressive performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk recorded eight receptions on 11 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Aiyuk followed up his breakout performance in Week 7 with another strong effort to lead the team in targets and yards. A significant portion of his production came with Nick Mullens under center during the fourth quarter, including a leaping catch for 33 yards down the middle of the field. On the team's next drive, Aiyuk hauled in a pass from three yards away for a touchdown in the corner of the end zone. Aiyuk could be in for a significant number of targets again in Week 9 against Green Bay on Thursday, as Deebo Samuel (hamstring) could remain out and George Kittle (ankle) will have to recover in short order to be available.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Records career-high yardage total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk caught six of seven targets for 115 yards during Sunday's 33-6 win over the Patriots.

Aiyuk led the team in targets and receptions while posting the highest yardage total of his young career. He broke off a season-long gain of 35 yards and made several other splashy plays against a notoriously tough Patriots secondary. Aiyuk's production has varied from week to week this season, but it's clear he has the ability to be a difference-maker in the 49ers offense . He'll have a good chance to add to his numbers next Sunday against a beatable Seattle secondary.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Scores on three targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk had two receptions (three targets) for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Rams.

Aiyuk was having a quiet night until Jimmy Garoppolo dialed him up from the red zone for what turned out to be the deciding score. It was the 22-year-old's first receiving touchdown of his career, but it was his third overall this season (the previous two were rushing scores). This game was significant because it was the first time we saw a normal game script with the 49ers' offense operating at full strength. Despite getting into the end zone, the two receptions and three targets are concerning moving forward. Aiyuk has flashed his playmaking ability both before and after the catch, so there is definitely fantasy potential here. That said, with George Kittle and Deebo Samuel clearly ahead of him in the target pecking order, we may see some ups and downs from Aiyuk during his rookie campaign. Up next is a Sunday matchup against the Patriots, who are tougher against opposing receivers compared to runners.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Posts 44 yards in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk had three receptions (six targets) for 44 yards in Sunday's 43-17 loss to the Dolphins.

The 49ers' quarterback play was atrocious in this one, so it is hard to place blame on Aiyuk for the pedestrian stat line. In fact, he tied George Kittle for the team lead in receiving yards in a forgettable game all around. The notable stat for the talented rookie was the playing time, as he led all San Francisco wideouts with a whopping 97 percent of offensive snaps. He was followed closely by Deebo Samuel (89 percent), and it appears the two YAC monsters will be co-starters for the foreseeable future. The 49ers have a brutal stretch of games ahead, beginning with a matchup against the Rams on Sunday Night Football, but the tough schedule could result in some favorable game scripts for passing the ball.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Flashes athleticism on TD run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk had two receptions (five targets) for 18 yards, but did most of his damage on a 38-yard touchdown run in a loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

Aiyuk remained in the starting lineup as Deebo Samuel (foot) was eased back into action. The dynamic rookie put his after-the-catch skills on display when he took a backwards pass behind the line of scrimmage and bounced off of two tackles before hurdling a diving defender and landing in the end zone. It was a highlight-reel play that flashed the potential Aiyuk has to rip off a big play at any moment. It is unclear if the Arizona State product will remain a starter against the Dolphins on Sunday now that the receiver he was replacing (Samuel) is back in the fold. Either way, Aiyuk proved that he doesn't need a ton of touches -- or receptions for that matter -- to make an impact on the scoreboard.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Shines in Week 3 breakout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aiyuk brought in five of eight targets for 70 yards and rushed three times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants on Sunday.

The rookie made a splash in his second NFL game, pacing the team in receptions, receiving yards and targets while also notching a 19-yard scoring rush late in the third quarter to give the 49ers key breathing room by extending the lead to 23-9. Aiyuk had generated a modest 2-21-0 line back in his Week 2 debut, but if Nick Mullens is forced to log another start in place of Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) in a Week 4 Sunday night matchup against the Eagles, the chemistry the duo demonstrated Week 3 provides reason for optimism from a fantasy perspective.
