Summary

Pettis was a pleasant surprise as a rookie, stepping into a major role in Week 10 and immediately establishing as the 49ers' top wideout. Flanked by one-dimensional speedster Marquise Goodwin and a handful of low-impact slot men, Pettis closed 2018 in dazzling fashion. Over Weeks 12-16, only 13 players produced more receiving yardage, and only one (Amari Cooper) caught more touchdowns. The youngster flashed the ability to win both inside and out, and he's reportedly focused on adding weight and strength during the offseason. His versatility should appeal greatly to Jimmy Garoppolo, who shoehorned Goodwin into that inside-out role in 2017 to great results (77 yards a game). Pettis may not dominate targets like other No. 1s - he'll likely fall well behind tight end George Kittle in the pecking order, and rookie Deebo Samuel brings a versatile skillset of his own. But Pettis is a big-play dynamo who can help win fantasy weeks, and he boasts the upside to catch 60-65 high-upside balls. A fantasy WR3 finish is well within his range of outcomes. (May 9)

49ers | Dante Pettis expected to take another step (Tue Jul 23, 03:58 PM) - San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis is a 'student of the game' and 'can line up anywhere,' according to NFL Network's Michael Silver. As such, Silver expects Pettis to be a key contributor in 2019.

Our View: Pettis has speed to burn and can get by defenders in the blink of an eye. He could get around 55 catches and 800-plus yards in year two. Fantasy GMs should look at him as a WR3 with upside. His current ADP is WR29 (6.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.
