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.We saw Cobb a lot more involved in the offense in Week 2, though it took a zero-target game from Will Fuller to get there. He caught 5-of-6 targets for 59 yards, though he did have the best matchup on the field. He actually does once again this week against Mike Hilton, though it's not a smash spot or anything. In his four years with the Steelers, Hilton has allowed a pedestrian 66.1 percent catch-rate (this is decent for a slot cornerback) and 10.4 yards per reception with a touchdown every 31 targets. The Steelers biggest weakness is over the middle of the field, but the only receivers who've truly capitalized on that saw seven-plus targets and had a big role in their offense (Tyler Boyd, Tyler Lockett, Christian Kirk, Julian Edelman, and Jarvis Landry). Those are the slot receivers who finished top-36 against the Steelers. If Fuller is inactive, there's a chance, but I don't think Cobb should be considered anything more than a WR5 in fantasy 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.Cobb stepped up in Fuller's absence last week, but he's still not someone that you can trust in your starting lineup.
