Brandon Aiyuk Wants To Stay With Niners Long-Term

Tuesday, February 13, 5:45 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2024, said he wants to remain a 49er "if it's the right move." When asked what that would look like, he said "being a champion." Aiyuk finished last season on a sour note after catching just three passes for 49 yards on six targets in the 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday. However, the 25-year-old former first-rounder had 75 catches (105 targets) for a career-high 1,342 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 regular-season games in his fourth year in the league. He has found the end zone 15 times the last two years. Aiyuk should remain plenty attractive as a strong WR2 for fantasy managers in 2024 as he heads into what could be his final season in the Bay Area.

Nico Collins Leads Texans With 68 Receiving Yards In Divisional Round Loss

Saturday, January 20, 11:54 PM

Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins had 68 receiving yards in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Collins was held in check for the most part by this Baltimore secondary, as the wideout totaled five catches for 68 yards. The third-year playmaker, though, did lead the team with 68 receiving yards and saw a game-high 10 targets. It was a remarkable season for Collins, who truly proved himself as the Texans' WR1 of the future. He should fly up draft boards in fantasy next season.
