San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis came on strong at the end of 2018 and ended his rookie season with 467 receiving yards and five touchdowns, setting the stage for an important offseason and high expectations in 2019. 'We loved the way he closed this season. There's some maturation that I think is naturally going to come in terms of putting some girth on and some strength. I think this offseason is very important for him,' general manager John Lynch told the team's website.
Fantasy Spin: Many thoughts Pettis was overdrafted in the second round last spring as a slightly above-average college receiver with great return skills, but he emerged as the team's top threat at wideout by season's end and performed at a WR3 level in fantasy after the team's Week 11 bye. If he is featured next season in the same way he was toward the end of 2018. It's not out of the question he could push for 60 or 70 catches.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) caught 24 passes for 371 yards and four touchdowns from Week 10 to Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Pettis flashed his potential down the stretch, and he could be poised to break out in 2019 if both he and Jimmy Garoppolo are healthy.
The San Francisco 49ers placed WR Dante Pettis (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 29, officially ending his season with 27 grabs, 467 yards and five touchdowns across 12 games.
Fantasy Spin: The rookie out of Washington showed some glimpses of brilliance and big-play ability, averaging 17.3 yards per grab. And he was doing it without starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who was injured early on. Pettis could be quite a fantasy sleeper heading into 2019 if he and his QB are each healthy.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and Richie James likely will be the top receivers for the 49ers this week. George Kittle may be on the only pass catcher that owners should consider for their lineups, but Bourne could be an option in some deeper leagues.
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) and WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 27. LBs Malcolm Smith (Achilles), Mark Nzeocha (groin), CB K'Waun Williams (knee), C Erik Magnuson (hamstring) and TE Garrett Celek (concussion) were limited, while DE Arik Armstead (hand), OT Joe Staley (non-injury) and C Weston Richburg (knee) practiced in full.
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle), LB Mark Nzeocha (groin), WR Dante Pettis (knee) and OT Joe Staley (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26. TE Garrett Celek (concussion), C Weston Richburg (knee), LB Malcolm Smith (Achilles') and CB K'Waun Williams (knee) were limited. DE Arik Armstead (hand) participated fully.
Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) is believed to have suffered a medial collateral ligament injury and will not play in Week 17. He will not require surgery, however.
Fantasy Spin: Pettis' rookie season will end with 467 yards and five touchdowns on 27 catches in 12 games - the bulk of which came over the last five games during which he was the featured receiver in Kyle Shanahan's offense. The 2018 second-round pick should be considered a high-upside WR3 for fantasy purposes in 2019.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis (knee) suffered an MCL injury in the Week 16 loss to the Bears. He will not require surgery, but Pettis won't play in Week 17 against the Rams. Pettis caught three of his five targets for 21 yards on Sunday, so he wasn't of much help to his fantasy owners before leaving the game. He'll finish his rookie season with 24 catches on 40 targets for 446 yards and five touchdowns. Pettis was the team's most reliable wideout down the stretch and should have a much bigger role in 2019. With Pettis out next week, Marquise Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne should be the main wideouts alongside tight end George Kittle.
Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not return against the Chicago Bears in Week 16 after suffering a knee injury. He finished with three catches for 21 yards.
Fantasy Spin: Pettis has flashed his potential in recent weeks, and if he is able to play in Week 17, he has proven he can be a worthwhile flex play.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) left the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears in the first half due to a knee injury. He was taken to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught all five of his targets for 83 yards in a 26-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.
Fantasy Spin: The rookie continued his recent hot streak, and he has emerged as a quality flex option late in the season.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis snatched all five of his targets for 83 yards in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks. Pettis once again operated as the Niners No. 1 receiver, using excellent technique and making chain-moving plays. His longest grab on the day was an impressive 30-yard contested catch in the second half. In the four games since the teams bye week, the second-round rookie has 26 grabs for 338 yards and four touchdowns. Pettis strong play has earned him every-week WR3 consideration but hell get a tough test in Week 16 against a suffocating Chicago Bears secondary.
San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida (ankle) and wide receivers Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) are all active in Week 15 against the Seahawks. Breida will return after a one-game absence, but he won't necessarily be the workhorse in this one. Jeffery Wilson could steal valuable touches, making Breida more of an RB3/flex. Pettis has become the second best receiving threat on the team behind tight end George Kittle, giving him WR3 upside. Goodwin hasn't gone over 100 yards since Oct. 15 and hasn't scored since before Halloween. He's a weak WR4/flex.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 15 game.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (foot) is expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Pettis has four touchdowns over his last three games, giving him some upside as a flex option heading into this one.
San Francisco 49ers DL Ronald Blair (groin), RB Matt Breida (ankle), WR Marquise Goodwin (calf), DL Cassius Marsh (concussion), LB Mark Nzeocha (groin), WR Dante Pettis (foot), LB Malcolm Smith (Achilles'), S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and CB K'Waun Williams (knee) were each listed as limited participants in practice Friday, Dec. 14. Tartt has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, Breida, Goodwin, Marsh, Nzeocha, Pettis and Williams are listed as questionable, while Blair and Smith were removed from the report. D.J. Jones (back), C Weston Richburg (knee), OT Joe Staley (not injury related) and OL Laken Tomlinson (hip) practiced in full and are each off the report.
San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida (ankle) and wide receivers Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) are all questionable for Week 15 against the Seahawks. Breida missed Week 14 but looks to be on track to return. He was initially injured against Seattle several weeks ago but could be a volume-based RB2 if he's not limited against Seattle. Breida's return would mean Jeffery Wilson would return to a backup role. Pettis has become an upside WR3 in PPR leagues, but San Fran's passing game would be in serious trouble if both Pettis and Goodwin sat out. Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and rookie Richie James might need to step up on Sunday, which would make Seattle's defense/special teams even more attractive.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (foot) was added to the injury report Thursday, Dec. 13, getting in a limited practice.
Fantasy Spin: Pettis has been a consistent part of the 49ers offense as of late, receiving at least six targets in each of the last four games. He's also hauled in four touchdowns over the last three. Pettis is a nice option for deeper formats if he can stay in the lineup, as he seems to be developing a nice rapport with rookie quarterback Nick Mullens.
San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) were both limited in practice on Thursday. Both players should be able to suit up in Week 15 against the Seahawks as the team's top two wideouts. Pettis has come on strong of late as quarterback Nick Mullens' second favorite target behind tight end George Kittle. The 23-year-old has exactly seven targets in each of the last three games and has four touchdowns over that span, including a 129-yard effort against Seattle on Dec. 2. Pettis has upside as a WR3, while Goodwin is fading and is a shaky WR4/flex.
San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught three of his seven targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in a 20-14 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 14, and Pettis has four touchdowns in the last three games.
Fantasy Spin: Pettis has also been targeted at least seven times in each of his last three games, and he is suddenly a decent flex candidate for fantasy owners.
