Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Don't look now, but Aiyuk has posted two top-12 performances over the past three weeks! With Deebo essentially acting as a Running Back here recently, Aiyuk has become the de facto WR1 for the 49ers and he's delivering. While fantasy managers will argue that he would have been producing the entire season if he had been given the main opportunity, that's a different conversation for a different day. Looking ahead to Week 12, the Vikings are allowing a staggering 26.1 fantasy points to opposing WRs this season and Aiyuk belongs in starting lineups because of it. He can be viewed as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with upside.One of the big hangups with Fant coming into draft season was what his consistency was going to be with so many other mouths to feed in this Broncos offense. Now with Jeudy, Patrick, Sutton, Williams, Gordon, and Okwuegbunam all healthy, there are major questions surrounding Fant and what his target share is going to be. While the Chargers matchup is enticing on paper - they've given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing TEs this season - it's important to take notice of who all they've played this year. They've had a slew of tough matchups at the position with very talented players and it's quite shocking that they're only allowing 11.1 fantasy points per game. Fant is a risky play this week due to the possibility that Denver chooses to lean on their run game and we need to downgrade him for it. He can be viewed as a high-end TE2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 The Chargers are just 25th against fantasy tight ends over the last 5 weeks, Fant should be a solid TE1 at home coming off his bye week.
