What is going on with 49ers receiver Dante Pettis?

San Francisco 49ers fans and Dante Pettis' fantasy football owners couldn't help but notice that the 2018 second-round pick hardly played against the Tampa Buccaneers Sunday, despite a fair amount of offseason hype for a breakout sophomore season.

The receiver played only two snaps during the game, and caught one pass for seven yards from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The vast majority of his snaps appeared to go to rookie Deebo Samuel, who had three catches for 17 yards.

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Samuel didn't take Pettis' job: Pettis re-aggravated a groin injury he suffered in August.
