Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He made his NFL debut last week, playing 44 snaps and running 25 routes, which was right up there with Bourne for tops among 49ers receivers. He saw three targets, catching two of them for 21 yards, so nothing to write home about. The Giants have still yet to allow a receiver more than 69 yards, and that's despite playing against JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, and Allen Robinson. Newly acquired cornerback James Bradberry has played quite well outside of a few pick plays that caught him up. Aiyuk is playing almost all his snaps on the perimeter, which means he'll see Bradberry and Corey Ballentine, as I don't foresee Bradberry shadowing anyone in this game. Ballentine is the one to attack, as he's allowed nearly 10.0 yards per target over his two years in the league, including a touchdown every 10.0 targets. We watched Bears rookie Darnell Mooney just flat out win a one-on-one battle in the end zone with him last week on a broken play. Aiyuk is someone who's trending up and as long as Bradberry doesn't shadow, he could have a fantasy relevant week. We'd ideally see it first, making him a risk/reward WR5 play.After Ross was trusted as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver on this team in Week 1 running 37 routes to just 9 routes for Higgins, we saw a changing of the guard in Week 2 when Higgins ran 42 routes while Ross ran just 23 of them. This is clearly an open competition, and one that Ross may have lost already. For now, we should give Higgins the benefit of the doubt. Against the Eagles, you really don't want to start either of them, as they have yet to allow a receiver top 81 yards or five receptions. Keep in mind they've played against Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. We'll continue to monitor this receiver corps, but neither of these two need to be rostered right now.

Aiyuk was finally able to get onto the field in week two, but it didn't amount to much from a fantasy perspective. He's an intriguing hold in deeper leagues, but you simply can't trust him in your starting lineup right now.Ross has the talent to be a fine option for fantasy football, but right now he's falling down the depth chart here in Cincinnati. Ross just simply isn't seeing the necessary volume to be considered for fantasy football. He can remain on your waiver wire.
