Aiyuk buy low?

Recommended Posts

well, it looks like his stock has dropped somewhat.

I just saw him traded to someone for Devante Parker.

If you can get him for Devante Parker value, I'd say, yes, you should buy low if you have room to wait for Deebo to get hurt.

I’d want him over Parker for the upside. Kittle is out, could be a good week for him. 
 

If Kittle, Debo and Aiyuk are all going I’d not expect much consistency until the inevitable injuries.

Parker and Aiyuk about the same. Aiyuk might not be the biggest bust to date, but he’s on the list for many.

It seems like many on here don’t understand the concept of ‘buying low’…

It's basically the same as Wall Street. Some people look for 'value stocks' 

Stocks, that for whatever reason, aren't performing well. (selling at 52 week low's) 

Sometimes it works out, (a temporary issue) & sometimes it doesn't.

Very similar indeed. The key in fantasy is to target players with talent that the simple minded might call a bust after a few games…

Especially with Kittle out and the 9ers needing to throw to stay in the game, now is a great time to pickup Aiyuk.

I’m considering dropping E Sanders for him in one league and A Green in another…

I’d take him if I could trade away my drop candidate for him, but that’s about it. Kittle wasn’t doing much so not sure how that opens up Aiyuk to do a lot more than he’s been doing. I don’t think switching to lance helps either.

Kittle was averaging 7 targets a game. Some of those will likely go to Aiyuk. The 3 games Kittle will have to miss at minimum are Zona, Indy and Chicago, all bottom third pass defenses. Not saying Aiyuk will erupt like last year, but now is the time to get him, before his value shoots up.

This is the same Niners wr named Aiyuk that some where drafting as a low wr1? And a high wr2.? Yeah I would say after four games he’s been a bust, he went from Avg 10 points per game last season to 4 this season, if you drafted him and still own him how do you see it ?  ( don’t draft a te until double digit rounds , just a simple reminder to those that draft the Kittle) I would expect Aiyuk target share to rise.  If they don’t , oh boy.  

I wouldn’t give much for him.  

I want to current owners in my three leagues to keep waiting for that explosion to happen , I don’t now think he’ll match last season, if you can find what I said about him during the summer it matches what I said today. 

Thanks.

So those 7 targets automatically go to him and not the leading receiver Samuel or others? I’m fine buying low on him but I won’t give up much for him. Until Samuel gets hurt or I see something, he’s a borderline cut candidate .

If you actually read what I said as you can see above " Some of those will likely go to Aiyuk". You aren't really fine with buying low on him if you have to wait till you see something first. Buying low implies getting him before the rise in value. Waiting means you would have to pay more, so not buying low at all...

I did. Why would someone trade a guy who's about to increase his target share for someone they could get on the wire? What you are really saying is if someone dropped him you would consider cutting someone else to pick him up. Not the same thing as buying low. HTH...

Yeah, he’s little above waiver wire to me that’s buying low at this point. There’s very little that points to him being viable at this point. Hoping he gets an extra 3 targets a game doesn’t change much in my view.our version of low on him is just different I guess.

Weeks  two and four Aiyuk had a combine 5 targets and produced 2.1 combine ff points non of course.  

Week three he had 6 targets produced 10 ff points non ppr of course, so I think those extra three targets might make a difference.

You mean the week he scored a td he had decent week? He’ll still be TD dependent

Also the week he had his most targets. Those extra targets and a td= 10 non ppr ff points .

I don't know if he's gonna pick it up.

There may only be enough room for one good fantasy WR on the 49ers, and that's Deebo.

Unless Trey Lance starts and he favors Aiyuk, I don't see it

Had high hopes for him…drafted him in 2 $ leagues, and held onto him despite a number of trade offers in a keeper league.

At this point he’s permanently on my bench unless he can put up a few double digit point games in a row.

well, after what we saw this week, I question if any WR is worth holding if Lance is at the helm of this ship.

the good news is that Garoppolo will be back soon.   it does not look like Lance is ready to take over yet.

aftter  the bye, Garoppolo should be back.  I think the Aiyuk breakout should happen now.

his replacement  hasnt exactly lit it up so far.  nobody not named Samuel or Kitttle has put up more than 50 yards receiving. At some point they have to go back to him.

My guess is  it needs to happen soon.

I'm not suggesting  you start him, but if you can get him  cheap (or on waivers) you sit  him  on the bench  until that breakout comes.

if Shanny is like  his old man, he likes to tear players  down and build em back up.  so Im guessing he will bring him, play him, and then say he turned him around with good coaching.(even if the coaching had nothing  to do with it)

When does one know when that break out game happens , can’t trust those 3 point games.

Not worth picking up , if one shouldn’t start him.

everyone has a bench.  they are called backups because they are not starting.  but at some point you inevitably start them when you have injuries or byes.
