2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
An upper-percentile speed with high-level burst scores, rookie Brandon Aiyuk has been on the fantasy radar as he could potentially fill the void left by Samuel - if Deebo does miss games. A four-year junior college transfer who didn't break out until N'Keal Harry left for the NFL, Aiyuk profiles more as a second option in an NFL offense than a first one, but he still has the highest upside of any wide receiver in this offense other than Samuel.

The 49ers reportedly had Aiyuk as their top-ranked wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft class and they selected him with their first round draft pick, so there's plenty of reason to believe that the team will be excited to deploy him as early as this season. However, given the current state of affairs with the health concerns that are threatening training camps throughout the league, there's a fair chance that Aiyuk takes a while to break out - or never breaks out at all - in his rookie season. Still, his price is currently quite low in fantasy drafts so it's worth giving him a chance on your roster with one of your final draft picks.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Brandon Aiyuk done for the year
High-ankle sprain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 28, 7:00 pm

San Francisco
49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk suffered a high ankle sprain in Saturday's game. OT Trent Williams has a sprained elbow. Both will miss the season finale. (ESPN - Nick Wagoner)

FFToday's Take: Aiyuk wraps up his banner rookie campaign with 60 catches and seven total touchdowns despite playing in only 12 games. He proved more than capable of lighting up defenses despite average quarterback play and figures to be a hot commodity in 2021 redrafts as a result, even with the returns of Deebo Samuel and George Kittle. Aiyuk figures to be ranked as a WR2, but he should be viewed as a high-upside WR3 when everyone is healthy.

Injury Nick Mullens out with elbow injury, C.J. Beathard to start
Surgery likely for Mullens

FFToday's Take: The 49ers are in a bad situation at QB and will likely have to pluck a QB off another team's practice squad in order to have a backup this week against the Cardinals as Josh Johnson has been placed on the COVID-19 list. This is a putting a wet blanket on the fantasy prospects of Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne.

Injury Deebo Samuel could miss multiple games
Strained hamstring on first touch of Week 14
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 14, 7:50 pm

San Francisco
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said WR Deebo Samuel will be "out awhile" with his hamstring strain. He didn't want to put a timeline on it. (ESPN - Nick Wagoner)

FFToday's Take: Not good. With only two weeks left to play in most fantasy leagues, owners may need to cut ties with Samuel if head coach Kyle Shanahan expands on the seriousneess of his receiver's injury. Considering how tricky hamstring injuries can be and the slim odds the 49ers have for making the playoffs now, he may sit for the rest of the season. Brandon Aiyuk stepped up with 10 catches against Washington and can be considered a must-start in Week 15 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

Injury Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel placed on COVID-19 list
Both out for Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 4, 7:33 pm

San Francisco
#49ers LT Trent Williams and WRs Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as close contacts, source says. They’re out for tomorrow vs #Packers. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Packers and 49ers game scheduled for Thursday night is going to feature a lot of backup players from both sides. The 49ers are down to Trent Taylor, Richie James and Kevin White at wide receiver. The Packers will be without running backs Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon.

Injury Kendrick Bourne tests positive for COVID-19
49ers thin at wide receiver
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 4, 11:38 am

49ers’ WR Kendrick Bourne tested positive, per source. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers have an issue at wide receiver. Deebo Samuel has already been ruled out for Week 9 against the Packers and Dante Pettis was waived yesterday. Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Taylor are the top two on the depth chart at this point.

Injury Deebo Samuel could miss Weeks 8 and 9
Hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 26, 11:55 pm

San Francisco
The 49ers might also have to play without receiver Deebo Samuel, who has been an integral part of the offense over the past two weeks while the team has gotten back to its run-first identity. Samuel had eight touches for 72 yards, including a handful of running plays. But on his final carry, an outside run to the left sideline in the fourth quarter, he grabbed his left leg and was quickly ruled out with a hamstring injury. Shanahan indicated the team fears Samuel will miss some time after he already missed four games to start the year with a broken foot sustained over the summer. (The Modesto Bee)

FFToday's Take: It's been a season to forget for Samuel, who missed the first three games of the season with a foot injury he suffered while working out over the summer. The 49ers' bye doesn't come until Week 11, meaning the team will probably bring him back as soon as they can (as opposed to playing it conservatively and giving him an extra week to recover). Samuel's absence should allow rookie Brandon Aiyuk to re-enter the WR3 conversation in fantasy.
