San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (knee) made several quick bursts during practice Thursday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Hunter's recovery from a torn ACL that cost him all of last season is going well, but he returns to a backfield that now features Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush. At one time, Hunter looked like a potential heir to Frank Gore. Now, he is likely third in the pecking order for touches.

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is the expected starter heading into the regular season while RBs Reggie Bush, Kendall Hunter and rookie Mike Davis all compete for touches as well.
Fantasy Tip: Hyde will get first crack at the carries and if fantasy drafts were today, he would be the first San Francisco back off the board. The San Francisco RB situation is crowded, though, and it could be similar to a New England situation from last year where one guy is a stud one week and non-existent the next. Be careful to have plenty of depth at the position if you draft 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (knee) has been participating in some drills with his teammates during offseason workouts.
Tue, 10 Mar 2015 11:06:35 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is the projected lead back for 2015, with impending free-agent RB Frank Gore expected to leave. RB Kendall Hunter (knee) will be returning from an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his knee. Hyde averaged 4.0 yards per carry while rushing for 333 yards in his rookie season in 2014, but he also suffered a sprained ankle in Week 15. Hyde's four rushing touchdowns tied him for the team lead with Gore.
Fantasy Tip: Hyde should be an intriguing fantasy football option as a potential RB2 with upside. However, the uncertainty surrounding the Niners' offense during a regime change can't go unnoticed. How will the power-run game be influenced now that offensive coordinator Greg Roman is gone? With that said, make sure not to overpay for Hyde's services.
Mon, 03 Nov 2014 14:29:04 -0800

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 14:31:06 -0700
The San Francisco 49ers placed RB Kendall Hunter (knee) on no-recall waivers with a waived/injured designation Monday, Aug. 4.
Fantasy Tip: This gives a bump in value to Carlos Hyde, who is now the team's backup running back.
Sat, 26 Jul 2014 18:44:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (knee) tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the Friday, July 25, practice, according to a source. Hunter will subsequently miss the entire 2014 season.
Fantasy Tip: It's a good blow to the team's backfield as Hunter was their backup behind RB Frank Gore. Now RB Carlos Hyde could receive some additional playing time with RB LaMichael James also in the mix.
