Fantasy Football Must Start No. 3: 49ers Wide Receiver Brandon Aiyuk
No, this list isn’t going to solely be Seahawks players.
After a painfully slow start over the first two weeks, much to the chagrin of fantasy football owners, second-year wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk finally started making a dent on the stat sheet in Week 3, hauling in four passes for 37 yards, one of which found the end zone.
It seems as if quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is becoming more comfortable targeting Aiyuk as of late, and that’ll likely need to continue in Week 4 if the 49ers want to keep pace with what could be a high-flying Seattle pass attack.
Seahawks cornerbacks D.J. Reed and Tre Flowers could present the opportunity for Aiyuk to have a season-high in receiving yards this season, and it would be even more of a bonus to see Aiyuk cross the goal line once more after doing so a week ago.
Aiyuk might not generate massive returns in PPR leagues where net receptions matter a lot. But there’s a strong chance Aiyuk rips off a chunk gain after one catch, racking up the yardage totals in a game that promises to feature a lot of scoring.
