Dynasty Riser: Ricky Pearsall
3 days ago

Ricky Pearsall has been one of the top risers in PlayerProfiler’s Dynasty Deluxe lifetime value rating for the month of July.

Pearsall entered this summer as a projected 2nd round pick and saw his dynasty value skyrocket after being selected in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft by the 49er’s. His value continues to increase with the news that star receiver Brandon Aiyuk has officially requested a trade. If the 49er’s decide to move on from Aiyuk, the door will be wide open for Pearsall to establish himself as a primary target for Brock Purdy long-term.

 

Pearsall was recently placed on the NFI list which adds uncertainty about how much we’ll see him during training camp. While this negatively impacts his short-term outlook, his long-term outlook is looking more favorable than ever, as it’s becoming more evident that the 49er’s will present an opportunity for a new receiver to step up as a primary weapon sooner than later. Dynasty Managers should see Pearsall’s addition to the NFI list as an opportunity to acquire him at a discount from owners looking to win now.

Brandon Aiyuk is Circling Back on a Monday for a New Contract
1 month ago

Brandon Aiyuk is taking negotiations public via TikTok with Aiyuk telling former teammate Jayden Daniels that the 49ers do not want him back with them.

Brandon Aiyuk has made it publicly known that he either wants to get paid by the San Francisco 49ers or get traded to a team where he can get compensated to his liking. This is a topic that has moved to the front burner throughout the offseason only to be shelved and placed on the back burner as far as immediate attention. 

 

In a video of a facetime call with former college teammate Jayden Daniels, Aiyuk can be seen telling Daniels that the 49ers do not want him back. While the 49ers have listened to offers for both Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel, the team has not gotten offers to their liking.  

 

With a potential logjam for team building presenting itself, the 49ers created contingent value drafting Florida Gators wide receiver Ricky Pearsall in the first round. While Aiyuk’s number one priority is getting paid, the 49ers urgent priority may not involve succumbing to Aiyuk’s demands. 

 

Brandon Aiyuk currently goes in the early 2nd round on UnderDog and is our 16th ranked wide receiver in our Dynasty rankings. In 2023, Aiyuk was number 2 in yards per target (12.8) and yards per reception (17.9) and has had back-to-back 1,000 yard receiving seasons. Ricky Pearsall is going in round 12 on UnderDog and chances are that savvy Dynasty managers will raise the price on Ricky Pearsall. Ricky Pearsall is a hold in Dynasty and worth realizing his contingent value before you decide to cash out.

Brock Purdy Talks up Ricky Pearsall
2 months ago

Purdy and Pearsall are already working out together, building their chemistry.

Brock Purdy spoke at a charity event last night and confirmed that he’s already been working out with first-round draft pick Ricky Pearsall.

 

Purdy and Pearsall have been on a football field together before, during high school. In one game, Purdy’s team scored 70 points, but despite the score, Pearsall set a state record by gaining 250-300 receiving yards by himself. Purdy acknowledged Pearsall’s talent by saying, “So, he’s a baller.”

 

After discussing the game, Purdy made sure to mention that he is developing a rapport with Pearsall through throwing drills stating “Pearsall has the tools to be a good player” While Pearsall might have been the 2nd to last pick in the first round and the 6th wide receiver drafted in this year’s class, developing a good on-field connection with Purdy is a step in the right direction.

 

Pearsall’s value in the dynasty league is based on nothing but pure potential. Landing in a great situation, it will be difficult for Pearsall to produce a real fantasy impact in his rookie season with Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, and pass-catching back Christian McCaffrey on the field. It will either take an off-season trade from Aiyuk or Deebo, or perhaps an injury to one of the two studs in front of Pearsall to give the rookie a chance at true volume. Either way, Pearsall is on the rise and dynasty managers should have faith in the process.

Ricky Pearsall Drafted 31st Overall by the 49er's in the First Round
2 months ago

The wide receiver from Florida is ready to chomp his way up the depth chart with the 49er’s.

Ricky Pearsall has been selected by the 49er’s with the 31st pick overall in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. The Florida Gator gained plenty of buzz in the pre-draft process and that buzz has been validated with such an early investment by San Francisco.

 

The 6’1,’’ 189-pound prospect who ran a 4.41 40-yard dash has been chopping it up on the practice field with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle in the offseason. Pearsall can track the ball mid-play and adjust with soft hands. Pearsall looks to be a player who has a better NFL career versus college as scouts want to see what he can do with a more accurate quarterback. For visual proof, look no further than Pearsall’s one-handed catch from the sky against the Charlotte 49er’s.

 

Ricky Pearsall joins Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk (for now), and George Kittle and will have Brock Purdy throwing him the football. Ricky Pearsall had a pre-draft closing ADP in the 150’s on UnderDog fantasy and is currently our 12th ranked rookie wide receiver. Look for Pearsall to rise post NFL draft in respective rankings across several fantasy platforms and contests.
