Expert 
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.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
If you're looking for a boom-or-bust WR, look no further than Lockett. While his 2020 stats look great, there's a greater context that doesn't come across when looking at the fact that he finished with 1,054 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns last season. The majority of Lockett's production came in three games last year, which is extremely concerning for fantasy managers that are playing in weekly redraft leagues. He absolutely comes with week-winning upside, but there's the potential that he can hurt your fantasy lineup if he doesn't come through with a huge performance. This all comes down to Lockett's value point and where you're able to get him in drafts. If you're able to secure him as a WR3 on your roster, this is enough of a discount to where you can live with the potential range of outcomes. However, if you're needing to rely on him as a WR2 or a consistent producer to keep your lineup in matchups, this is a strategy that can lead to a lot of heartache. We know what Lockett can be for fantasy, so he's still worth selecting in your drafts this year. However, it's going to all come down to his ADP and what it settles out at by the time drafts start happening.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Sure, Lockett finished as the No. 9 fantasy wide receiver last year, but ask anyone who rostered him if he was a WR1. Heck, as them if he was a reliable WR2. The answer would be no, as he finished with WR2 or better numbers just 37.5 percent of the time which was behind players like Diontae Johnson, Curtis Samuel, John Brown, and Jamison Crowder. How's that possible? Because 48.7 percent of his production last year came from just three games. He's going to have massive games, but relying on him as anything more than a volatile WR3 is going to lead to disappointment.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.
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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lockett scored 105 of his 215.4 fantasy points in three games or 48 percent of his fantasy production. He had too many low-scoring games for me to rank him as anything more than a WR3 that will be propped up by a few monster games.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.

The only knock in Lockett is he's undersized at 5'10". That limits his TD ceiling, especially with DK Metcalf opposite of him. Still Lockett's is usually good for about 1,000 yards and 8 TDs.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.
