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

Falls completely out of favor

Pettis finished with 11 receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games during the regular season.
ANALYSIS
Pettis was the biggest disappointment for a 49ers squad that surged to the top of the NFC in 2019. The 23-year-old appeared to be turning into a fantasy factor over the final four weeks of the 2018 season, but he failed to build off of the momentum and seize a potential starting opportunity. Coach Kyle Shanahan questioned the sophomore's effort during training camp, and his statements rang true when the former second-round pick quickly lost his starting job and even return duties to less-proven wideouts. Pettis has flashed his potential at times, and while he remains under contract in San Francisco for the next two years, a change of scenery could benefit both sides after a disastrous season.

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.
