Fantasy Impact:

It's a disappointing end to a phenomenal rookie campaign for Aiyuk. The 25th overall pick in this year's draft, Aiyuk became a fantasy WR1 in the absence of Deebo Samuel down the stretch. He finishes the year with 60 receptions for 748 yards and five TDs. A naturally skilled receiver, Aiyuk gets a bump in value thanks to all the creative ways that Shanahan can scheme him open and give him run-after-catch opportunities. He'll be pricey in '21 fantasy drafts.
