Notes for Player Combination

Derek Brown

After escaping the Kyle Shanahan doghouse, Brandon Aiyuk played at least 82% of snaps in every game after Week 7. Over that stretch, his efficiency was off the charts as he was 13th in yards per route run (minimum 25 targets, per PFF). The problem for Aiyuk is his per route prowess didn't equate to fantasy production as he was the WR50 in fantasy points per game across those 11 games. While Aiyuk's talent is apparent, he resides on a run-first offense with little touchdown equity (44th in red-zone targets).

5/15: Perhaps Deebo is traded, but seems unlikely. Still flashed so much upside and could be a better fit for Lance's cannon-arm if/when the soph takes over 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Fantasy managers are still trying to figure out what went wrong with Brandon Aiyuk during the first half of last season. He was hyped up after an impressive rookie campaign, but suffered a hamstring injury during training camp that made him unreliable in the starting offense. Through Weeks 1-7, Aiyuk had just one weekly finish inside the top-25. He also averaged an abysmal 0.63 yards per route run - a mark that ranked 98th out of 102 qualifying WRs. Woof. But give credit to Aiyuk for turning his season around during the second half. His yards per route run increased substantially (2.16, 13th) and he averaged 13.1 PPR fantasy points per game as the WR24. If Aiyuk can roll over his second-half production into 2022, he could end up as a smashing fantasy value in a similar way that Deebo Samuel was viewed in 2021.Chase Claypool's second-year breakout was inevitably halted by Ben Roethlisberger's lack of downfield throwing ability: On throws with 20-plus air yards, Big Ben graded 31st out of 38 qualifying QBs. Claypool commanded a 27% air yards share on the season and led the team in the metric over the final four weeks. Better days should be ahead of the Notre Dame product if Pittsburgh can get better downfield quarterback play from Kenny Pickett/Mitchell Trubisky. Claypool is also due for positive touchdown regression after catching just one of his 12 end-zone targets last season. The 6-foot-5 monster is no stranger to hitting paydirt, after being one of eight wide receivers to score double-digit touchdowns as rookies since 1998. However, Claypool's range of outcomes is quite wide heading into his third season with 2022 second-round pick George Pickens, chomping at the bit to be the No. 2 on the offense behind Diontae Johnson.
