    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis has impressed QB Jimmy Garoppolo and head Kyle Shanahan with his new physique and attention to detail. 'Dante's body is maturing,' Garoppolo said. 'He's coming out of breaks with power, he has speed.' 'He worked while he was away,' Shanahan said. 'He tried to get bigger. He worked more at his routes and he came here with the idea of 'Hey, I'm not just coming here to get better back in shape, I'm coming here to get better.''

    Huddle Up: While it remains to be seen who will emerge as the top receiver in the San Francisco passing attack, Pettis is certainly a solid bet. He is set to open the year as a starter, and he flashed some upside at the end of last season. Consider him a WR4 with the upside to be a regular fantasy starter.

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis said he has been trying to add muscle to his frame and is up to 197 pounds. 'Just trying to gain a little more weight, get a little stronger,' Pettis said.

    Huddle Up: Pettis flashed some upside as a rookie, but he also battled a few injuries. The pecking order for targets in San Francisco's receiving corps is up in the air, but Pettis could emerge as the top target after tight end George Kittle. He is worth a look as a WR4.

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis should be one of the starting receivers for the 49ers next season, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

    Huddle Up: Pettis had a solid rookie season with 467 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games. The team does not have a go-to receiver on the roster, so Pettis has a chance to see a lot of targets in 2019. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 2/15/2019 7:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) caught 24 passes for 371 yards and four touchdowns from Week 10 to Week 16.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/29/2018 1:15pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/28/2018 4:19pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 8:35pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 7:11pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: The rookie continued his recent hot streak, and he has emerged as a quality flex option late in the season.

  • Posted: 12/15/2018 9:31pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (foot) is expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pettis has four touchdowns over his last three games, giving him some upside as a flex option heading into this one.

  • Posted: 12/13/2018 4:56pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (foot) was added to the injury report Thursday, Dec. 13, getting in a limited practice.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 7:51pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 9:47pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught five of his seven targets for 129 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon were out again with injuries in Week 13, and Pettis again showed off the run-after-catch skills that made him a second-round pick this spring, scoring from 17 and 75 yards in the second half. Pettis has taken full advantage of the absence of San Francisco's veteran wideouts with 205 yards receiving and three touchdowns in the last two weeks alone. Owners should not hesitate using him again in Week 14 versus the Denver Broncos if Goodwin and Garcon cannot play again.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 7:13pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis will start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Pettis finished with 77 yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay in Week 12, but he will find life a lot tougher against Seattle's secondary. He's a shot-in-the-dark flex play.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 2:34pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught four passes for 77 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Pettis received a bigger role in the passing game with Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin out of the lineup. He has been targeted 13 times over the last two weeks and could receive a similar workload if Garcon and Goodwin miss the Week 13 game. Pettis could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 9/15/2018 9:16am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis will be in the starting lineup for Week 2 in place of WR Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps).

    Huddle Up: Pettis had a solid Week 1 performance with 61 yards and one touchdown. He has a chance to see a decent amount of targets as the No. 2 receiver and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 2:24pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis posted two receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 loss against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Pettis squirted free for a 22-yard catch and run near the end of the third quarter, the only touchdown of the afternoon for the 49ers. He was targeted five time and appeared to be the most effective receiver against a tough Minnesota D. The rookie isn't worth scooping up in fantasy leagues just yet, but if he repeats the performance in Week 2 against the Lions he might be worthy of consideration.

  • Posted: 8/19/2018 7:50pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis has 'quickly emerged as a legitimate threat' for the offense, according to Daniel Jeremiah of

    Huddle Up: Pettis doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues just yet, but with all the positive reviews the rookie has received, he has become a must-own option in dynasty leagues.
