Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
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.Pittman had no preseason, had to play with the ghost of Philip Rivers, and had in-season surgery for compartment leg syndrome and the rookie STILL put up 40-503-1 in 13 games (5-90-0 in one postseason game). Not to mention he's a strong blocker so he won't leave the field. - GhostTesla
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.Pittman showed enough last season for me to believe that he's ready to take a massive leap in 2021. With Carson Wentz now at QB, he should be more willing to push the ball downfield, which means good things for someone with Pittman's skillset. With an aging T.Y. Hilton and an oft-injured Parris Campbell as his main competition for targets, we could see Pittman enter into the WR2 conversation this season. My Very Early Projection: 71-846-6 receiving.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Despite T.Y. Hilton aging and Parris Campbell missing the entire season, Pittman couldn't break out in his rookie season. While that might be high expectations, the opportunity was there. Philip Rivers turned out to be better than most expected, though Pittman finished with more than 66 yards just once all year, and topped 46 yards just three times. He scored just once, which surely didn't help his year-end totals, but with Campbell back in the mix, he isn't a surefire pick to gain a whole lot of targets. Hilton was re-signed, Zach Pascal out-produced him, and Carson Wentz has traditionally favored his targets over the middle of the field. Pittman should lead this team in touchdowns with his large frame, but he's likely to be a bit too touchdown-dependent to trust as anything more than a boom-or-bust WR4.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
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. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.
