 Game time decision.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 If Aiyuk is fully healthy, he's worth a shot as a FLEX play if you're in a pinch. However, if you can afford to, I'd look elsewhere at the WR position. He comes with injury concerns and the 49ers should rely heavily on their run game to walk away with the victory against the Cardinals.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 He's been sidelined in training camp with a hamstring injury and has been ruled week-to-week, though Kyle Shanahan says that he "hopes" Aiyuk will be ready for the opener. It's tough saying that you should want to play him, though. He's a rookie coming off a soft tissue injury with no in-game experience. He's going to see a lot of Patrick Peterson, too. The 49ers targeted their wide receivers just 228 times last year, which was the fourth-fewest in the league, so unless we know a player is going to get a big target share, we should probably proceed with caution. The Cardinals were a matchup to target with receivers throughout last year, which makes us take a second look at Aiyuk to ensure we aren't missing opportunity. There were 20 wide receivers who finished top-30 against the Cardinals last year, and every single one of them saw at least six targets. There's no way we can guarantee that for Aiyuk, as there were just eight times where a 49ers receiver saw more than six targets last year. With the risk of a soft tissue injury popping back up, Aiyuk is a risky WR4/5 option.
