San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk(hamstring) practiced in full on Thursday, positioning him to make his NFL debut against the Jets in Week 2. New York's pass defense appears to be pretty shaky after one week of play, and while you very likely should not be counting on a rookie wide receiver on this team to lead you to a fantasy victory, he does become an upside play in DFS contests. If tight end George Kittle (knee) misses the game, Aiyuk's value would jump a little as well.
The San Francisco49ers Defense struggled to contain quarterbackKyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1, but this week they face a much more favorable matchup against the New York Jets. Last week, the Jets committed two turnovers and managed just 254 total yards of offense against a tough Buffalo Bills Defense. The 0-1 49ers should be locked in for their Week 2 game, coming off a disappointing home loss. Expect them to wreak havoc on quarterbackSam Darnold and company. The Jets will also be without lead running back Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) in the game, which will make them even less effective offensively.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne was one of only two 49ers wide receivers to catch a pass in Week 1, the other being Trent Taylor. Both Bourne and Taylor earned five targets, but Taylor caught just two of them for seven yards, while Bourne caught two for 34 yards. This week, the 49ers should see rookie receiver Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) make his NFL debut while tight end George Kittle (knee) is currently questionable for the game. The 49ers have a very favorable matchup in Week 2 against a New York Jets Defense that was torched by the Buffalo Bills last week. Bourne should see at least five targets in the game and a potential, albeit risky, flyer as a WR3 or flex in deep leagues.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) appears to be on track to make his NFL debut in Week 2 against the New York Jets. Aiyuk was questionable until almost game-time in Week 1 and this week, he returned to practicing in full. The 49ers are badly hurt at wide receiver and they are going into an extremely favorable matchup against a Jets Defense that allowed 312 receiving yards in Week 1 against the Bills. Aiyuk's outlook is even more promising if star tight end George Kittle (knee) is out for the game. He's currently questionable. Regardless, Aiyuk is a solid option as a WR3 or flex in Week 2 as he should see somewhere around seven or eight targets in his debut.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (knee) is currently questionable for Week 2 against the New York Jets. Kittle injured his knee midway through Week 1 and finished the game with a disappointing line of four catches for 44 yards. Kittle isn't expected to practice at all this week, but the team remains hopeful he can go in Week 2 regardless. If he's active, fantasy owners should start him and hope for the best, knowing what kind of upside he can provide. If he's out, Jordan Reed is a potential dart throw starting option in deep leagues.
