In a surprising twist of events, Pettis played more snaps than any other 49ers wide receiver in Week 5. Through the first three games, he had played just 70 snaps total while Richie James played 85 snaps. After the bye, we saw Pettis fill the slot-heavy role on the team, which is massive for his outlook moving forward. Some will wonder if it was a product of the blowout and we need to keep an eye on that in a game like this one, but it's clearly a good thing for Pettis. The matchup with the Rams isn't great, as Nickell Robey-Coleman will be the one tasked with defending him, a cornerback who's one of the better slot defenders in football. He's allowed just 11-of-21 passing in his coverage this year and just a 82.0 QB Rating when targeted, which is similar to his last three years where that number has ranged from 74.8-84.5. Pettis should be stashed in fantasy leagues right now, but he's not startable in this game.

Dante Pettis posts season-high 45 receiving yards in Week 6

Dante Pettis caught 3-of-6 targets for 45 yards as the 49ers beat the Rams 20-7 in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

The targets and yards were both season highs for Pettis. He has been playing better lately but still can't be trusted in fantasy moving forward. The 49ers visit the Redskins in Week 7.
