Fantasy Impact: Brandon Aiyuk in The Bay
Brandon Aiyuk should have no trouble stepping in as the number two receiver in the 49ers offense.
The San Francisco 49ers have added another threat to their offense. Brandon Aiyuk has a little bit of everything in his game — speed, size, and pure pass-catching ability.
Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be a happy man getting another target. San Francisco just lost Emmanuel Sanders in the offseason, but they were able to land a replacement right away. The rookie will get to step in and work beside one of the best tight ends in the league, George Kittle, and 2019 rookie sensation Deebo Samuel. Aiyuk will easily be able to step in and be the number two wide receiver at the start of the season.
In two seasons at Arizona State, he totaled 11 touchdowns and 1,666 receiving yards. He also added 785 on yards kickoff returns and 293 yards on punt returns. This will be another avenue for the 49ers to use their newest draft pick.
