Aiyuk truly emerged as a force to be reckoned with last year, racking up an impressive 1,015 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. His exceptional performance has carried over into this season, as evidenced by his 22 receptions for 411 yards and two touchdowns on 31 targets in his four complete games (he was sidelined in Week 2 due to a shoulder injury and missed Week 3).
When considering the entire season, Aiyuk reigns as the leader in the league with an astounding 52.7% air share. Furthermore, he may have the opportunity for additional targets this week with both running back Christian McCaffrey (oblique) and wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) uncertain to play. It’s worth noting that the Vikings’ defense ranks third worst in terms of allowing the most fantasy points to wide receivers, averaging 43.2 FPPG on NFL.com
