Brandon Aiyuk Injury Update

Aiyuk (hamstring) was on and off the injury report ahead of his Week 1 game in Detroit, but injuries weren’t the (main) reason he laid a fantasy chicken egg. He’s not on the injury report now and is in full training before Week 2 (@ Eagles). However, it remains to be seen if her role will be any different from last week’s. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan just said basically Aiyuk must be better to gain more reps, which is like a trainer meaning ‘train harder’. Who knows, though? It’s still concerning, as Aiyuk was expected to have an outstanding season as No.1 WR in San Francisco (and was drafted like that).

For the uncertainty of his situation, we can’t rank him any higher than WR56 in PPR and Standard for Week 2. It’s safe to keep him on the bench for now, but if you’re in a deep league, he’s safe. should start over guys ranked below it. It will always be a bet, but Aiyuk has the knack for a big game even with a few touches. Trent Sherfield has taken on some of Aiyuk’s reps, so understandably he’s the next man in line, but fantasy owners shouldn’t be worried about him.

Marquise Brown Injury Update

Brown (ankle) was out of practice on Thursday, and as we get closer to Sunday it could become more of a concern. Friday will tell us more about his outlook, but for now we won’t be adjusting him in our rankings. He had a great performance in Week 1 (@ Las Vegas) with six catches for 69 yards and a touchdown and seems to be gaining momentum in the fantasy so hopefully the ankle issue doesn’t do him running out of time or slowing down. It’s probably just a precaution after the Raiders played on Monday night.

Brown is our WR39 in the Standard and PPR leagues. In an upcoming game with Kansas City, he’s a consideration for a WR3 or a flexible spot in what should be a high scoring affair. If he were to miss the game, Sammy Watkins becomes more attractive, but behind that you don’t want any part of the Ravens’ other WRs.

Will Fuller play week 2?

Fuller was not seen in training on Thursday, but the reason for his absence was not related to injury. He has reportedly stepped down to settle a personal matter and will play in Week 2 (@ Buffalo). We don’t have a sample from Week 1 after his season opener (@ New England) suspension for DCs, but we do believe he will be a booming contender, just as he was. in Houston. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be playing it, though.

It’s unclear where Fuller will be in the Dolphins’ target hierarchy as Jaylen Waddle looked good in Week 1 and DeVante Parker established himself as a solid possession receiver. Mike Gesicki is also expected to be better after his no-catch performance. Fuller is on the starting bubble, and it may depend on whether you think you need a high ceiling or a high floor.
