2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 second-round pick doesn't possess the prototypical size (6-1) or speed that you'd expect from a player taken this high in the draft. It was his home-run hitting ability in the return game that caught the 49ers' attention, after scoring nine touchdowns on just 90 punt returns during his college career. Pettis figures to take over that return-specialist role with his new club off the bat, but a strong camp (or an injury) could open up a path for the rookie to make an impact as a slot receiver this year.

General manager John Lynch expects Pettis to bulk up during the offseason, Joe Fann of the 49ers' official website reports. "We loved the way [Pettis] closed this season," Lynch said. "There's some maturation that I think is naturally going to come in terms of putting some girth on and some strength. I think this offseason is very important for him."
ANALYSIS
Despite missing the final game of his rookie season with an MCL sprain, Pettis seems to be ready for a normal workout program this offseason. The 49ers list him at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds, but he only weighed 186 at the 2018 combine. Coming off an efficient rookie season with a 27-467-5 receiving line on 45 targets (10.4 YPT, 17.3 YPR), the 23-year-old should be an important part of the San Francisco offense in 2019, though it's possible he occupies a part-time role if the team makes an aggressive move to upgrade its wide receiver group.
