Depth Chart
With both wide receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle out for considerable stretches during the 2020 season, 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was thrust into a trial by fire in his first season, regularly matching up against opposing teams' top cornerbacks while attempting to catch passes from some truly awful quarterbacks.

Aiyuk himself missed four games, but still finished the season with 60 receptions for 748 yards and five touchdowns, which would've equated to 80 receptions for just under 1,000 yards and nearly seven touchdowns over a 16-game season. Even without the extrapolation, Aiyuk finished second behind only Minnesota's Justin Jefferson in fantasy points per game among rookie wide receivers in 2020. 49ers fans and fantasy gamers should be ecstatic that this budding star receiver performed so well under such poor circumstances and he should have plenty of opportunities to improve on those numbers in his second professional season.

One obvious concern is that the 49ers should have a healthy Samuel and Kittle heading into the year, which would theoretically cut into Aiyuk's target share, but it's worth noting that the team also moved on from slot receiver Kendrick Bourne, who actually finished second on the team behind Aiyuk in targets in 2020. San Francisco really didn't bring in any additional pass catching weapons, so there should still be plenty of targets to go around, especially assuming that the team opts to be a bit more pass-heavy now that they should have at least some level of competent quarterback play, whether it be from Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance.

If the 49ers offense takes a step forward, it will almost certainly have something to do with Aiyuk taking another step forward into legit alpha WR territory. Aiyuk has actually seen his ADP falling on many services over the past month, but there's a lot of upside for him to far exceed his draft position. The 49ers have been a very run-heavy offense under Shanahan, but that could very well lean more pass-heavy in 2021, which would be a great thing for Aiyuk and the other pass catching weapons in San Francisco.
