BRANDON AIYUK - WR SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
Updated: Mar 5, 2021
The 49ers will be without 2 running backs and their number 1 wide receiver, leaving Brandon Aiyuk to fill some seriously big shoes when going against the Seahawks this Sunday. The Seahawks defense is historically bad and shameful from what they were at the beginning of the 2010’s. Aiyuk is known for big plays through the air and on the ground. With the amount of injuries plaguing the 49ers this year and how prone Kyle Shannahan is to get “creative”, I see a lot of unique plays going Aiyuk’s way in hopes a playmaker can make a play. Currently, Aiyuk is already critically under rostered in ESPN leagues, and if he is sitting on your bench right now, he needs to be moved into the starting lineup. The situation has been nearly perfectly crafted for Aiyuk, as well as Kittle, to have major roles this week. It’s a division game, it's against a horrible defense, and key players are missing, leaving less options to give the ball to. Russel Wilson on the other side of the ball will always keep the game interesting and the Seattle defense will never let it become a blow out. I expect to see a strong showing for Aiyuk in this game.
