WR - NYG
Week 17 Outlook
Giants wide receiver Dante Pettis caught both of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Pettis was claimed by the Giants in late November but didn't make his Giants debut until Week 16. In two games for New York, he caught four of his five targets for 76 yards and a touchdown.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Giants claimed former 49ers WR Dante Pettis on waivers.
Pettis was a second-round pick back in 2018 but struggled with commitment and focus. He has just one target this season but it appears as if the Giants will take a chance on his talent.
The 49ers waived WR Dante Pettis.
This comes after Pettis lost a fumble on his first career kickoff return in Week 8. A second-round pick in 2018, Pettis reportedly struggled with with commitment and focus throughout his tenure in San Francisco. He could wind up signing onto a practice squad of another team at some point this year.
Former 2018 2nd-round pick 49ers WR Dante Pettis is on the trade block, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Pettis played 71% of the snaps in Week 1, but has barely played since that point. He’s been a healthy scratch the past couple weeks, and now the former 2nd-round pick is officially on the trade block ahead of the deadline.
Dante Pettis failed to draw a target in the passing game during the 49ers' 31-13 victory over the Jets in Week 2.
With rookie Brandon Aiyuk returning to action, Dante Pettis was nowhere to be found on Sunday. He failed to draw a target in the passing game and the addition of Mohamed Sanu figures to bury him farther down the depth chart. He should remain on the waiver wire.
