After winning their last three games, the San Francisco 49ers have a chance to solidify their playoff positioning as well as deal a de facto knockout punch to their division rivals, the Seattle Seahawks. The game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS.

Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk

Since starting the 2021 season locked in the doghouse of 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has emerged as a key contributor in the offense once again. Over his last four games, the second-year wideout has averaged roughly five catches for 73 receiving yards and half a touchdown per game. While those numbers pale in comparison to those of teammate Deebo Samuel, they still mark Aiyuk’s return to fantasy relevancy.

Now, with Samuel expected to miss 1-2 weeks with a groin injury, Aiyuk will see even more opportunities on offense. He will still play second fiddle to tight end George Kittle, but Aiyuk shouldn’t lack for touches against the Seahawks.
