Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel Likely To Stay With Niners In 2024

Wednesday, May 1, 2:04 PM

The San Francisco 49ers were engaged in trade talks involving wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel leading up to the draft, but the team elected not to trade either of their star receivers, with all signs pointing toward both being on the 2024 roster. Aiyuk is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and the assumption was that he'd be the odd man out after the team paid Samuel and other star players. Samuel still has two years left on the deal he signed before the 2022 season. San Fran has been to at least the NFC Championship game in four of the last five seasons, and losing Aiyuk or Samuel would almost certainly make the team worse in 2024. The 49ers can afford to keep both this year, but an Aiyuk extension would likely reduce his $14.124 million salary cap number for 2024. Samuel's fantasy value would have likely taken a hit with a move out of the Bay Area.

Drake London Embracing New Offense

Sunday, July 7, 9:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London expressed enthusiasm regarding the team's pass-heavy offense under new coordinator Zac Robinson. "Ball is gonna be in the air," said London during a recent interview. "Getting faster for a quarterback that's seen it all, it's a really cool situation to have because we'd like to dictate what goes on in a stadium on a weekly basis. The faster we can play, the more efficient we can play, hopefully the more points we have." The 22-year-old was drafted No. 8 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft. However, he hasn't lived up to expectations, accumulating 141 grabs for 1,771 yards and only six touchdowns in 33 games. But with Kirk Cousins under center and a new offensive coordinator, fantasy managers are ready to get London on their rosters for the 2024-25 campaign.
