Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Brandon Aiyuk could not have landed in a better spot than San Francisco. They love getting their WRs the ball in space and Aiyuk is dangerous with the ball in his hands. Add the fact that Deebo Samuel is slated to miss at least the first few weeks, and we could have an immediate contributor out of Aiyuk.Colts rookie WR, Michael Pittman finds himself in a fairly good position in Indianapolis with a legitimate shot to compete for the WR2 role. Parris Campbell will be stiff competition, but whichever one wins out will have fantasy value in 2020. I'm leaning towards Pittman being that guy.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Has the chance to make an immediate impact as a rookie as a downfield target for Phillip Rivers. His competition for targets is oft injured TY Hilton and Jack Doyle, and second year slot receiver Parris Campbell. Would not be shocked if he becomes a weekly starting option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
When a receiver is drafted in the first round, he's starting immediately. When that player was traded up for, they already have a plan in mind. Aiyuk is someone who can stretch the field, while Deebo Samuel and George Kittle work the underneath part of the field. The 49ers did not take very many deep shots last year, which doesn't bode well for Aiyuk from a fantasy perspective, but it could've been that they didn't have the personnel necessary to do so. He's just a late-round bench stash right now who will have some big weeks.It would seem likely that Pittman would start right away, as the Colts wanted to give Philip Rivers a big-bodied wide receiver. Some have compared Pittman to Vincent Jackson, a former teammate of Rivers, and one who had a lot of success when he was on the field. The expectation is that T.Y. Hilton and Pittman will play in 2WR sets, with Parris Campbell coming on when they go three wide. Because of that, Pittman could see a consistent five-plus targets per game. He's on the WR5 radar with upside for more.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Mike Williams is 6'4", 220. Michael Pittman is 6'4", 223. Mike Williams two years ago was Rivers' RZ weapon. Last year he was Rivers' deep-ball threat. With T.Y. as a solid deep threat and Campbell as a fast slot option, Pittman could make an impact in the RZ right away.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
The 49ers game plan is very simple. Run, run, throw to George Kittle, give Deebo Samuel a crack, run some more. It's simple but effective too and will only change if a) the defence sucks (it won't) or b) someone gets injured. Deebo's inury has therefore opened the door just a little, but it seems far more like the extra targets available from Sanders and perhaps Samuel's absence will be spread between Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and perhaps some Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor. There's hence simply not enough volume to justify the rookie as a worthwhile pick in most leagues, especially given the role isn't guaranteed. Because he's very cheap, you can draft him for depth, just don't expect a league winner.There's a lot of Michael Pittman hype and I get it. He's going to be a starter in a strong Colts offence with the aggressive Philip Rivers at the helm. But let's be very clear, he's still a solid but average rookie who'll play well behind T.Y. Hilton and the run game. It's very hard to project him with 100 targets and that makes it hard to consider him a fantasy-relevant player. I'd be avoiding him this year but look forward to drafting him in the future.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brandon Aiyuk was one of my most confusing evaluations throughout the pre-draft process and my grade reflects that. He has the draft capital, but Aiyuk's best utilized as a deep-passing option and that doesn't exactly fit Garropolo's skillset. Aiyuk may be one of the players that's better for a NFL offense than for fantasy football.Michael Pittman Jr. may have fallen into the best landing spot for any WR in this class. T.Y Hilton is on the last year of his contract and Parris Campbell is more of a gadget player that won't command an incredible amount of targets. Pittman is going to receive all the targets he can handle and he has the talent level to be a top-24 fantasy WR within the next two seasons.
