"It’s clear Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk already have rapport," The Athletic's David Lombardi notes. The duo reportedly hooked up "several" times in Sunday's practice. The pads haven't even gone on in San Francisco yet, but Aiyuk has been a hot name early in camp. With WR Deebo Samuel (foot) iffy for Week 1, Aiyuk has a chance to open the season with a big role. He's a strong target in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk suffered a high-ankle sprain in Saturday's win over the Cardinals and will miss the finale vs. the Seahawks. It ends an impressive rookie campaign that saw Aiyuk average 6.6 catches, 83 yards and .6 TDs over his final 7 games. Kendrick Bourne and Richie James will close out the season as San Francisco's top 2 WRs.
49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk has been activated from the COVID list. That puts him in line to return for Monday night's game against the Bills. San Francisco has had Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel together for only 4 games this season. Samuel has out-targeted Aiyuk 22 to 21 in those contests.
49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (COVID) is out for today’s game against the Rams. Deebo Samuel, Richie James and Kendrick Bourne should operate as San Francisco’s top 3 WRs.
As of Friday evening, 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk remains on the COVID list. HC Kyle Shananah said he hasn't heard any updates on Aiyuk's chances of getting cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Rams. San Francisco promoted WR Jordan Matthews from the practice squad, so the team is obviously preparing to be without Aiyuk. He should be on fantasy benches for now.
