• Jimmy Garoppolo - QB
    Posted 1/22/19 9:38am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) was throwing passes to RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) recently, 49ers general manager John Lynch said Tuesday, Jan. 22, in an interview.

    Huddle Up: All appears to be going well in the recovery of Garoppolo, who was injured in Week 3. There are sure to be plenty of updates upcoming throughout the offseason, but expect Garoppolo to be ready for training camp.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB
    Posted 1/22/19 9:44am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) was recently seen catching passes from QB Jimmy Garoppolo, general manager John Lynch said Tuesday, Jan. 22, in an interview.

    Huddle Up: A preseason knee injury shelved McKinnon for the season, but at least it happened earlier enough that McKinnon is expected to participate in training camp and be ready for the start of 2019 season. And that coupled with the Niners' strong productiveness with several different backs makes McKinnon an intriguing fantasy bounce-back candidate.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 1/18/19 10:20am ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle set a single-season tight end record with 1,377 receiving yards in 2018 and was one of four tight ends to lead their teams in receiving yards. Kittle also paced all tight ends with six receptions of 40-plus yards.

    Huddle Up: Kittle was one of the elite fantasy finds/breakouts of 2018 and should join Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz as one of the top three tight ends off the board in re-draft leagues this summer.

  • Dante Pettis - WR
    Posted 12/29/18 1:15pm ET

    The San Francisco 49ers placed WR Dante Pettis (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 29, officially ending his season with 27 grabs, 467 yards and five touchdowns across 12 games.

    Huddle Up: The rookie out of Washington showed some glimpses of brilliance and big-play ability, averaging 17.3 yards per grab. And he was doing it without starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who was injured early on. Pettis could be quite a fantasy sleeper heading into 2019 if he and his QB are each healthy.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/29/18 1:11pm ET

    The San Francisco 49ers placed RB Matt Breida (ankle) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 29, ending his season with 814 rushing yards and three touchdowns across 14 games.

    Huddle Up: Breida was battling a nagging ankle injury and other assorted bumps and bruises throughout the season, but he did a pretty decent job at times stepping in for the injured Jerick McKinnon. His fantasy appeal in 2019 will be predicated on McKinnon's rehab and how the workload is distributed.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/28/18 4:11pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery Wilson should receive the start with Breida ruled out and has played well in his limited time this season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues.

  • Dante Pettis - WR
    Posted 12/28/18 4:19pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and Richie James likely will be the top receivers for the 49ers this week. George Kittle may be on the only pass catcher that owners should consider for their lineups, but Bourne could be an option in some deeper leagues.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 12/28/18 8:25pm ET

    Sam Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle is averaging six receptions on 9.3 targets for 92 yards per game since QB Nick Mullens took over as the starter in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has delivered at least 70 receiving yards in five of the seven games with Mullens under center, and he should end an impressive season on a high note when he faces the Rams in Week 17. Kittle finished with five catches for 98 yards and a score against the Rams earlier this year.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR
    Posted 12/27/18 3:48pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (calf) didn't practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: If he plays, Goodwin will have a chance to end his 2018 season on a high note given the lack of playmakers San Francisco has right now with both Matt Breida and Dante Pettis already declared out. If Goodwin can't go, Kendrick Bourne would get a sizable boost and qualify at least as a WR4.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR
    Posted 12/26/18 11:01am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (calf, Achilles') is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 26.

    Huddle Up: Dante Pettis isn't playing this week, so Goodwin would ideally see plenty of targets if he were to play. If he is ruled out then George Kittle would be due for even more looks as top-tier TE1.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/24/18 12:16pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will not play in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: It means Jeff Wilson should have the backfield to himself. Despite consistently fighting through and reinjuring his ankle on almost a weekly basis from Week 5 on, Breida proved he has the ability to be a very good starting running back in the league. He will likely be on equal footing with Jerick McKinnon to begin 2019 and should be viewed as a flex option at the very least.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/23/18 2:20pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) left the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears in the first half due to an ankle injury and he was taken to the locker room. Breida is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: With Breida off at the moment it appears Jeff Wilson Jr. will be the lead tailback for the 49ers.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 12/23/18 8:53pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught seven of his 12 targets for 74 yards in a 14-9 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Even in an ugly showing for the San Francisco offense, Kittle managed to put up a solid line. He's been a lock for 50-plus yards week in and week out.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/23/18 8:46pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) did not return against the Chicago Bears in Week 16 after suffering an ankle injury. He finished with four carries for 20 yards and caught one pass for six yards before exiting.

    Huddle Up: Breida has been battling injuries over the final weeks, and if he can't suit up in the final week of the season, Jeff Wilson will have some flex potential as the lead back.

  • Dante Pettis - WR
    Posted 12/23/18 8:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not return against the Chicago Bears in Week 16 after suffering a knee injury. He finished with three catches for 21 yards.

    Huddle Up: Pettis has flashed his potential in recent weeks, and if he is able to play in Week 17, he has proven he can be a worthwhile flex play.

  • Jeffery Wilson - RB
    Posted 12/23/18 9:01pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Jeffery Wilson rushed 11 times for 27 and caught one pass for six yards in a 14-9 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Wilson took over as the lead back when Matt Breida went down, and if Breida can't play in Week 17, Wilson could be a volume-based flex play.

  • Kendrick Bourne - WR
    Posted 12/23/18 11:37pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne four of his five targets for 73 yards in Week 16 versus the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Bourne got more run in this one as a result of an early injury to Dante Pettis, but it should be noted this is the second straight year in which Bourne has made an impact late in the season. With Pettis set to miss Week 17, Bourne could be a serviceable WR3 in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/21/18 1:30pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Breida returned to the lineup last week and posted nearly 100 yards in total offense. He will be facing a tougher defense this week but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/20/18 3:52pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Breida again had to exit the team's last game due to his injured ankle but it looks like that won't keep him from suiting up in Week 16. Even so, he's a dicey play considering he's had to depart in his last two games. Additionally, the emergence of Jeff Wilson means he may see less than his usual workload. Owners should ponder more reliable options than Breida.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/19/18 2:50pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Dec. 19.

    Huddle Up: Breida is building a reputation for fragility as it seems he is hurt or aggravates an injury every week now. If he can't enter the weekend at full health then he's not worth starting in a daunting matchup with the Chicago Bears.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo - QB
    Posted 12/19/18 8:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) may be able to participate in some offseason workouts in May and June, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Garoppolo will have the entire offseason to recover from his torn anterior cruciate ligament and should be ready for the start of training camp. He has had some success since joining the 49ers and could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2019.

  • Nick Mullens - QB
    Posted 12/17/18 12:10am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens went 20-of-29 for 275 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Mullens, who ended a four-game streak in which he had thrown at least one interception, could have added another potential long touchdown to his totals but overthrew George Kittle. The undrafted free agent has more than proved his ability to play in the league, although much of the credit should go to head coach Kyle Shanahan for understanding his limitations. It's doubtful many owners are rolling with Mullens now, but there's he needs to be benched in fantasy in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Aldrick Robinson - WR
    Posted 12/16/18 6:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Aldrick Robinson finished with two catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Robinson is always a downfield threat, but that's about the only specialty he has. He hasn't been a great route runner in his career. As such, his fantasy value is rather limited, too.

  • Dante Pettis - WR
    Posted 12/16/18 7:11pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis caught all five of his targets for 83 yards in a 26-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: The rookie continued his recent hot streak, and he has emerged as a quality flex option late in the season.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/16/18 6:58pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) aggravated his ankle injury late in the Week 15 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He rushed 17 times for 50 yards and caught five passes for 46 yards before exiting.

    Huddle Up: Breida had resumed his workhorse role before the injury, but you will want to hang on to Jeff Wilson until Breida's status for Week 16 becomes clear.

  • Jeffery Wilson - RB
    Posted 12/16/18 7:25pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Jeffery Wilson finished with seven carries for 46 yards in a 26-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Wilson was an afterthought with Matt Breida healthy, but Breida went down late in the game to another ankle injury. If Breida misses time, Wilson will vault into flex territory.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 12/16/18 11:46pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle finished with three catches for 51 yards on a team-high eight targets in Week 15 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit of a reality check for owners after he erupted for a career-high 210 yards in Week 14, but Kittle's production this year has been a breath of fresh air at a position that has needed it. He's going to have his hands full in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, but he needs to remain in lineups unless owners also the luxury of starting Zach Ertz or Travis Kelce.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 12/15/18 9:37pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Breida may be eased back in to the mix as he fights through an ankle injury, but his presence will likely be enough to ruin the fantasy appeal of Jeff Wilson.

  • Dante Pettis - WR
    Posted 12/15/18 9:31pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (foot) is expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Pettis has four touchdowns over his last three games, giving him some upside as a flex option heading into this one.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR
    Posted 12/14/18 2:48pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 14 and he is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin returned last week for two grabs and 20 yards on his two targets in his return after a month-long absence. He is a risky fantasy option this weekend, so avoid him unless you're in dire straits at the wide receiver position.
