Basic StatsBrandon Aiyuk's Preseason Player Analysis

View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • After a rough training camp, Aiyuk opened the 2021 season in a part-time role. He played just 47% and 54% of the 49ers’ offensive snaps in the first 2 games. He totaled only 9 catches on 16 targets for 96 yards and 1 TD over the first 6 games. Aiyuk sat 93rd among WRs in PPR points at that point.
  • S Jimmie Ward said Wednesday. "B.A. has taken his game to another level. It’s crazy. I haven’t won a one-on-one rep with him yet."
  • Aiyuk’s playing time and production spiked the rest of the way.
    • He played 88+% of San Francisco’s offensive snaps in each of the final 11 games.
    • Aiyuk saw 68 targets over that stretch – 6.2 per game and 21.1% of the team total.
    • He totaled 47 catches for 730 yards and 4 TDs, ranking 16th among WRs in PPR points and 13th in non-PPR.
    • Aiyuk continued to play a full-time role in the playoffs, although he managed just 9 catches for 135 scoreless yards across 3 games.
  • As a rookie in 2020, Aiyuk posted a 60-748-5 line across 12 games. He missed 2 games with injury and 2 on the COVID list. But, from Week 7 on, he ranked 28th among WRs in fantasy points per game.
  • Aiyuk actually took a step back in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and yards per route run from 2020 to 2021. Among 89 WRs with 50+ targets last year, he ranked 28th in PFF receiving grade and 40th in yards per route run.
  • HC Kyle Shanahan returns in 2022 for his 6th season with the 49ers.
  • WR Deebo Samuel and TE George Kittle also return. They combined for 215 targets (41.8% share) last year.
    • Samuel hogged 31.0% of San Francisco’s targets over his first 8 games. He moved into a hybrid WR/RB role over his last 8 games and saw just 17.9% of the targets. We’re expecting him to play something closer to the role he played over those first 8 games in 2022.
  • QB Trey Lance is slated to take over as the 49ers’ starter this season.
    • He started just 1 full season at North Dakota State.
    • In 2 starts in place of QB Jimmy Garoppolo last year, Lance totaled 441 yards and 2 TDs on a 59.6% completion rate and 8.5 yards per attempt.
  • The 49ers have ranked 20th or lower in pass attempts in 3 of the last 4 seasons, including a 29th-place finish last year. They ranked 30th in situation-neutral pass rate last year. Expect this to remain a run-heavy offense with Lance at the helm.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Aiyuk got off to a slow start last season but ranked 16th among WRs in PPR points and 13th in non-PPR over his final 11 games.

The concerns heading into 2022 are a likely run-heavy offense under QB Trey Lance and stiff target competition in WR Deebo Samuel and TE George Kittle. It has Aiyuk looking like no better than a WR3 in fantasy drafts.

The 49ers head to Mexico City next Monday night to face the Cardinals.

QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 21 of 25 passes (84%) for 235 yards and TDs to McCaffrey and Kittle.

Dynasty Write-up
It's bothersome that Aiyuk managed to draw 12 fewer targets in Year 2 vs. his rookie campaign, despite playing 5 more games. He did overcome a sluggish start to finish much stronger, which should mean a better beginning in 2022. Whether Trey Lance delivers on the promise that got him picked 3rd overall and just how much the 49ers let him throw will go a long way toward deciding how high Aiyuk's ceiling rises.
