Another fantasy football preview of a matchup that really doesn’t stand out. San Francisco on paper should roll over Detroit in week number one, however I see this being a much closer matchup than anticipated which will lead to more fantasy value that comes out of this matchup. With that being said here is my fantasy football preview for this matchup.
Brandon Aiyuk is my must play player in this matchup. Aiyuk showed some flashes of serious fantasy potential last season and I think with all the talent on the field he will ball out this season. Fantasy wise I think Aiyuk finishes in the top 20 this week as he is my WR16 this week. With the other weapons on the field, I don’t see the Lions secondary being able to keep up with Aiyuk this week. Play Aiyuk at all cost this week.
Prediction: 10 Receptions 110 Receiving Yards.
Keep An Eye On:
Amon-Ra St. Brown
Amon-Ra St. Brown is a sleeper that you need to keep an eye on this week. He is listed currently as WR2 on the Lions depth chart at the moment. However, I see him ending up as their WR1 by the end of the season. I want to see some in game action from him before I pick him up in the waiver wire. He is going to go fast if he has the type of game that I see him having in week number one. St. Brown is only owned in 11.4 percent in leagues on ESPN at the moment. We should see a uptick after week one. Do yourself the favors and put him on your watch list right now.
I am avoiding D’Andre Swift this week. Swift is coming off of an groin injury that kept him out of the entire preseason. Swift also has a difficult matchup ahead of him this week against the 49ers front seven. RB22 this week for me is Swift and I think that is being generous. I think he is going to struggle mightily in week one and you should avoid playing him in your lineups.
Other Fantasy Predictions:
George Kittle: 6 Receptions 88 Receiving yards and a touchdown. TE3 for me this week.
Raheem Mostert: 64 rushing yards and 3 receptions for 40 receiving yards. RB21 for me this week.
T.J. Hockenson: 5 Receptions 75 Receiving Yards and a touchdown. TE6 for me this week.
