All eyes are on Trey Lance in 2022 but he’s not the only breakout candidate this season. Aiyuk enters his third season as one of the most exciting prospects in the league. He started 16 games last year with 56 receptions and five touchdowns. Now it’s time for him to take the next step and break the 1,000-yard mark.
The future is bright for San Francisco if he forges a strong connection with Lance. It remains to be seen if Lance is the franchise quarterback the Niners require but there is certainty in the position for now. Aiyuk must help to bring the best out of the new starting signal-caller (via Marca).
