Brandon Aiyuk Making News With Latest Social Media Post

Sunday, July 7, 9:16 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk posted a picture of a Washington Commanders' practice session on the social media platform TikTok. The wideout reportedly wants to remain in San Francisco, although he wants to be paid. However, if both sides can't reach an agreement on a new deal, Aiyuk has been vocal about his desire to play in Washington or Pittsburgh. This isn't the first time he has used social media to keep himself in the news. But considering Aiyuk amassed 1,342 receiving yards and seven touchdowns off 75 catches in 2023-24, his fantasy stock is higher than ever. It could increase even more with a move to the Steelers or Commanders, where he would likely be considered the No. 1 wideout on the depth chart.

Zay Flowers Won't Face Action From NFL

Thursday, April 18, 4:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers was allegedly involved in a domestic investigation in February, leading to uncertainty surrounding his status on the field in 2024. On Thursday, the NFL announced there was insufficient evidence that Flowers engaged in any activity that violated the league's personal conduct policy. That said, there will be no action taken by the NFL, and Flowers is free to participate in all team activities. The 23-year-old is on track to contribute in 2024 after a 77-catch, 858-yard, five-touchdown rookie campaign. Although he did a lot of his damage with Mark Andrews (ankle) out of action, the former Boston College star has plenty of ability and should push to compile WR2 numbers in his sophomore campaign.
