2020 Fantasy Outlook
Aiyuk figures to see work on punt and kick returns, given his quickness, explosiveness and vision in the open field. The question is how many looks he'll see as a wideout. At 6-1, 206, he has decent size but only average long speed (4.50 40), though his vertical leap (40 inches) and broad jump (128 inches) were near the top of his class. Aiyuk is excellent after the catch, able to make defenders miss, and he finishes off plays like a running back. His fate will likely depend on his work before the catch, however - getting off the line of scrimmage and running strong routes. Luckily, he landed in an almost ideal setting - the Niners let Emmanuel Sanders go this offseason, leaving only Deebo Samuel ahead of Aiyuk on the receiver depth chart. Kendrick Bourne is still around in the slot, but Aiyuk could enter his rookie season as the team's top outside receiver if Samuel doesn't recover from June foot surgery in time for Week 1.

Scores on three targets
WRSan Francisco 49ers
October 18, 2020
Aiyuk had two receptions (three targets) for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Rams.
ANALYSIS
Aiyuk was having a quiet night until Jimmy Garoppolo dialed him up from the red zone for what turned out to be the deciding score. It was the 22-year-old's first receiving touchdown of his career, but it was his third overall this season (the previous two were rushing scores). This game was significant because it was the first time we saw a normal game script with the 49ers' offense operating at full strength. Despite getting into the end zone, the two receptions and three targets are concerning moving forward. Aiyuk has flashed his playmaking ability both before and after the catch, so there is definitely fantasy potential here. That said, with George Kittle and Deebo Samuel clearly ahead of him in the target pecking order, we may see some ups and downs from Aiyuk during his rookie campaign. Up next is a Sunday matchup against the Patriots, who are tougher against opposing receivers compared to runners.
