San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has had a great season. When you play on a team with that many weapons, the ball will be thrown to everyone, but he does his part when they throw his way. We take a look at his Week 15 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks and what it means for fantasy football start/sit decision-making.

Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk

In 13 games, Aiyuk has 58 receptions for 755 yards and seven touchdowns. He’s on pace to have a career-high in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. With the 49ers' quarterback situation and Deebo Samuel out, they will need Aiyuk to step up in the next few weeks. I would expect his numbers to take a jump while Samuel is out.

The Seahawks' defense just isn't there yet. They are fun to watch and have some good pieces, but they’re ahead of the rebuild. With how bad the NFC West has been, they have a chance at winning the division, but I expect them to fall off over the next few weeks. They’re allowing 218.2 passing yards per game which ranks 18th in the NFL. I expect a big game from Aiyuk this week.

Start or sit in Week 15?

In both season-long fantasy and DFS, Aiyuk should start.
