2019 Fantasy Outlook
Last year's 44th overall pick, Pettis had a quiet rookie season until Week 12 when he took over as the team's No. 1 target. From Weeks 12-15, before he sprained his MCL in Week 16, Pettis went 26-17-338-4 with backup quarterback Nick Mullens, putting him in the running to be the team's top wideout in 2019. All told, Pettis finished with 17.3 YPC and 10.4 YPT, numbers that would put him among the league leaders had he qualified. At 6-1, 195, Pettis is on the slight side, but he ran a 4.48 at his pro day and is quick enough to line up in the slot or play outside. He's not much of a red-zone target - only five of his 45 looks were in that area - but he's a deep threat and a dangerous player in space. The Niners also return 2017 leading receiver Marquise Goodwin, drafted WR Deebo Samuel in the second round, have one of the league's top tight ends in George Kittle and should get passing-game production from their speedy backs. There are suddenly a lot more mouths to feed, but Pettis is the best bet to be their top wideout. Read Past Outlooks

Leads wideouts with 45 yards
WRSan Francisco 49ers
October 14, 2019
Pettis caught three passes (six targets) for 45 yards in Sunday's 20-7 win over the Rams.
ANALYSIS
Pettis led all San Francisco wide receivers in receptions (three), targets (six) and receiving yards (45), but it was the team's tight end, George Kittle, who ate up most of Jimmy Garoppolo's modest aerial production. The yardage represents a season high for the 23-year-old wideout, highlighting a disappointing start to his sophomore campaign. Pettis continues to start on a weekly basis, but the 49ers' zone-run scheme has left few scraps to be had in the passing game outside of the team's starting tight end. Pettis should be viewed as a low-end option even in a favorable matchup against the Redskins on Sunday.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 second-round pick doesn't possess the prototypical size (6-1) or speed that you'd expect from a player taken this high in the draft. It was his home-run hitting ability in the return game that caught the 49ers' attention, after scoring nine touchdowns on just 90 punt returns during his college career. Pettis figures to take over that return-specialist role with his new club off the bat, but a strong camp (or an injury) could open up a path for the rookie to make an impact as a slot receiver this year.
