Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Aiyuk stepped into a majority role in Week 4 of last season. From a Fantasy Points Per Game perspective, Aiyuk was the WR15 from Weeks 4-16! While Samuel and Kittle being in and out of the lineup certainly helped him reach that status, Aiyuk was dominant as a rookie. Heading into 2021, the 49ers are going to experience a change at QB at some point during the season. With Lance's skillset, Aiyuk could potentially breakout in a big way this upcoming season. He'll have to do it on the back of high efficiency, as he's not going to see the type of volume that other receivers in the league will, but he has the talent to maximize his opportunity. He might not have top-12 upside due to the volume concerns, but Aiyuk's going to deliver you some potential matchup-winning performances throughout the year. He's someone I'd be thrilled to get as a WR3 on my roster if his current ADP holds.As college offenses progress and the coaching gets better, we're starting to see more and more receivers come into the NFL and make an impact immediately. No receiver better exemplifies this from last season than Chase Claypool, who was not high on consensus draft boards, but came in and absolutely shattered expectations. He ran hot and cold throughout the season due to the offense's struggles, but the talent is absolutely there. While Diontae Johnson should be Big Ben's favorite target yet again this season, Claypool's big play ability is going to lead to some fantastic fantasy performances. When it's all said and done, it would not shock me to see Claypool end the season with the highest fantasy finish among the Steelers WRs.

I expect Aiyuk to take a major jump in year 2. He started coming on late in the season. He's had a full offseason to get comfortable with the playbook. 2020 was brutal for rookies trying to learn plays with covid protocols. Aiyuk has some serious juice when he runs. He's great in the open field. Coach Shanahan also used him on running plays, which led to two TDs. This kid is going to be a good one. The comp scouts gave him coming out of college was Torry Holt. That's pretty good company to be in.INJURY UPDATE- Claypool went down in practice with an injury to either his ankle or knee. Early reports are that it doesn't look like anything major. Claypool is a good young player in a terrible situation. If he was on another team I'd be more bullish on his 2021 outlook. Instead I'm fading all Steelers. If they beat me they beat me, but the line and Big Ben scare me. Not much upside imo. For that reason I'm passing on him.

Aiyuk finished his rookie season on a high note. From Weeks 6-15, he appeared in seven games and went for either 100 yards or a TD in every single contest. Though he missed 4 games, Aiyuk finished the season as the WR33 and scored 7 receiving TDs and 2 rushing TDs. A healthy season and potentially better QB play should be a boon to Aiyuk's fantasy value.

Aiyuk is a tough one to crack, as he exploded onto the fantasy scene last year, finishing with 583 yards and four touchdowns over his final seven games, but there were factors that helped him achieve those numbers. The major ones being the injuries to George Kittle and Deebo Samuel. There were just four games where the trio were on the field together, and during that time, Aiyuk saw just 21 targets (the lowest of the three) and had 13/189/1 combined in those games. To be fair, it was from Week 4-7, so it was very early in Aiyuk's rookie season, so it's possible he just hadn't earned the trust yet. There's a wide range of outcomes in his projections, going as high as a top-15 wide receiver, but also as low as a wide receiver in the WR30-36 range. You want equity when drafting, so taking Aiyuk as anything more than a WR3 when Kittle and Samuel are healthy is risky.Claypool may have finished as the WR19 on the season, but his year was littered with lackluster performances. He posted WR3 or better type numbers in just 50 percent of the games last year, which was tied with Jamison Crowder and DeVante Parker for 34th among wide receivers. His four-touchdown game in Week 5 really catapulted his numbers at season's end, as he failed to top 59 yards in 11-of-16 games, making him a touchdown-or-bust option most weeks. With Ben Roethlisberger's arm strength seemingly deteriorating by the day, it's tough to see Claypool having a true breakout season in 2021, as he relies on those high value targets more than JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson do. Claypool is an upside pick for sure, but not one I'd bet heavily on.

2020 Stat Line: 96 Targets, 60 Receptions, 748 Yards, 5 Touchdowns, 6 Rushing Attempts, 77 Yards. He was a bust in 3 of the four games with both Deebo and Kittle on the field.2020 Stat Line: 109 Targets, 62 Receptions, 873 Yards, 9 Touchdowns. He could be DK Metcalf or Martavis Bryant.

Aiyuk had a very solid rookie season, with 60 catches for 748 yards. But his production came mostly when both Deebo Samuel and George Kittle were out of the lineup. That's not to take anything away from Aiyuk's talent - he can play outside or in the slot with ease (79% outside, 21% slot last year), and he's an excellent route-runner and fit for Kyle Shanahan's offense. He can and should be drafted as a borderline WR2. But the fact is that both Samuel and Kittle will command a significant target share, and the 49ers' quarterback situation is in flux. Aiyuk should be very solid this season, but unless there's an injury again to Samuel and/or Kittle, his upside is a bit capped.

 JuJu's return sucks some upside, but not all. Still, expect this to resemble an unpredictable 2020 tgt share

Brandon Aiyuk was stellar with 154.5 fantasy points in 12 games playing with mostly backup quarterbacks. He has monster upside entering his second year.Claypool had a fantastic rookie year and he will look to build on the 183.9 fantasy points he scored as a rookie.
