Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) to see role grow

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk will be eased back into his role for the 49ers. The health of his hamstring will dictate the timeline.

Fantasy Impact

As feared, Aiyuk was used as a decoy in Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is no stranger to dressing players who are cleared to play but may not be healthy enough to make their normal impact as a way to set up more favorable matchups for his healthy players. Shanahan stated that he is "Happy with Aiyuk' before suggesting that his injured hamstring has led to inconsistencies that the team would like to see cleaned up before dropping him back into a major role in the offense. Deebo Samuel should continue to be treated as the number one receiver until Aiyuk proves he is close to full form. Aiyuk is currently the WR42 for Week 2, according to ECR.

Brandon Aiyuk doesn't receive a target in Week 1

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk wasn't targeted in the team's Week 1 win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

It sounds as if Aiyuk has fallen out of favor in San Francisco. Matt Maiocco reported that the second-year wideout is "still learning how to be a pro." This is a shocking development considering we heard nothing about it leading up to Week 1. Trent Sherfield stated over Aiyuk and found the end zone. Aiyuk can't be trusted in fantasy lineups entering Week 2.

Aiyuk's hamstring injury was never considered serious. He's an upside WR3 in a favorable matchup against the Lions this Sunday.

Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) returns to practice

Brandon Aiyuk, who has been battling a hamstring injury, returned to practice on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

The rumors were that Aiyuk would be ready for Week 1, and all signs point to him being able to suit up against the Lions. San Francisco has been careful with all of their players, including Deebo Samuel and Raheem Mostert, and all look on track to be 100% as the season begins. Aiyuk should make a strong WR2 option against a woeful Lions team.

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) remained sidelined during Thursday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Aiyuk is dealing with a "slight" hamstring injury. It seems as if the 49ers are just being cautious with their second-year breakout candidate. As long as Ayiuk is practicing by next Wednesday, then this isn't a concern.
