I hate that we support the same team.

Yeah they really are pretty awful.
He needs to put down the paint brush N needs to pick up them weights instead. His needs to bulk up dude is A.J. Junkins thin

He is a high end #2 if he can stay healthy. He is somewhat fast, runs good routes, catches the ball and makes plays. He's too skinny to be a #1. He isn't strong enough.

He's taller and heavier than Marvin Harrison, and he dominated. To say this so matter of factly after year 1 (and a decent year at that) is just blog fodder.

Yes. And his cat licking itself TD celebration is awkwardly hilarious

All TD celebrations are childish and inane. The cat grooming is one of the better ones tbh.

Dude needs to eat a few of his cats and gain some weight, if he does that he has all the talent in the world.

Don't forget really athletic.

I don't think there does, the question is talent and potential, and I think that's a definite yes.

If the question was "Will Pettis become a #1 WR?" I'd agree we'd need to wait.
I think he'll have at least 50 catches and 800 yards hes listed at 195 now so he's growing into his body. His route running is vicious he can get open fasho.

Obj can't stay healthy, Julio Jones is always hurt, AJ missed half of the yr etc....

All that said you don't need a WR1 to have a great offense

This...would you call Diggs a WR1? I wouldn't but I love me some Diggs and Thielin. Give me that with Killte and pass catching RBs and we're gonna be killing it

This. Let's see him play a full 16 games first. It 'appears' Kyle fed him after the bye week as the XWR predominantly. And we still have Goodwin there plus Hurd, Deebo and Matthews in the mix too. I'd imagine that's still his home now but he'll move around some like the others.

Good baseline year when healthy. But let's see him build on it for 16 games particularly with Garoppolo and building up that chemistry.
I don't think any of our WRs will be top leaders in yards or touchdowns. But we will have a lot of production out of the group this year compared to last year.
Kittle is our #1. If our WRs can all come through with 200-1000 yards and a couple of Arbys at 200-600 yds., we'll be in real good shape.
