49ers | SF wideout jobs are wide open

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:15:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WRs Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton and Jerome Simpson are in the mix for the starting job opposite WR Torrey Smith. WR Dres Anderson isn't expected to be consistent enough to shoulder the load, but he is also in the battle. WR DeAndrew White has plenty of size, but he is considered closer to the roster bubble than he is to being a regular contributor.

Fantasy Tip: None of these receivers are worth drafting in most fantasy leagues unless they have a giant training camp and preseason or something bad happens to Torrey Smith to vault one of these guys to the No. 1 job.

49ers | Torrey Smith ready for No. 1 role

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:13:59 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith inherits the No. 1 spot in the depth chart with WR Anquan Boldin no longer with the organization. It will be the first time in Smith's career that he is the unquestioned go-to guy. Smith wants to be more than just a deep threat and worked to develop a good rapport with QB Blaine Gabbert in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is still worth drafting only as a WR2 at best, as he might be a No. 1 on his team but he still has a rather questionable quarterback situation.

49ers | Two RBs looking to move up order

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:13:01 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB DuJuan Harris saw extended reps in the offseason, and he and RB Kelvin Taylor will be looking to move up the depth chart. Currently Harris and Taylor are behind RBs Carlos Hyde and Shaun Draughn in the pecking order.

Fantasy Tip: Harris and Taylor might be worth keeping an eye on this season, as Hyde hasn't been able to stay healthy and Draughn has bounced around the league. Right now Harris and Taylor can be avoided in most fantasy leagues, but remember their names.

49ers | Shaun Draughn in line for big role

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:11:44 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn's ability to catch passes brings some versatility to the offense, and beat writer Michael Wagaman predicts Draughn will see plenty of playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn has bounced around the league, but it looks like he has found a home in Frisco. He can be drafted as a No. 3 or 4 running back for depth in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

49ers | Carlos Hyde sits atop depth chart

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:10:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is expected to keep the top spot in the backfield as long as he can stay healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Hyde will see plenty of touches, and he is expected to be a focal point in the passing attack in 2016. He should be drafted as a low-end RB2 with some upside. If he takes off in the passing game he'll be a great option in formats which reward points per receptions (PPR).

49ers | Ian Williams should start

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 11:35:38 -0700

San Francisco 49ers DT Ian Williams has the edge over DT Quinton Dial for the starting nose tackle position, according to Michael Wagaman of ESPN.com. Wagaman expects both players to see plenty of playing time, though.

49ers | Two-man race at right tackle?

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 11:27:21 -0700

49ers | Two players may miss 49ers' final roster

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 11:18:32 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WRs DeAndre Smelter and RB Mike Davis were left off the 53-man roster projection, according to ESPN.com's Michael Wagaman.

Fantasy Tip: This is just one man's opinion, but it's an educated and informed opinion, too. Smelter and Davis probably wouldn't play huge roles anyway, but Smelter at least would be worth a flier look in deeper leagues if he does make the team.

49ers | Jeff Driskel receives praise

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 17:06:53 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Jeff Driskel, a sixth-round pick this year, received plenty of praise during offseason workouts. "I think he's already been exposed to multiple systems at the college level, so we've been impressed with him. He's very athletic. I think he was the fastest quarterback at the combine. He's big. He's got a good arm," head coach Chip Kelly said. Driskel has also participated on special teams, and his size (6-4, 234 pounds) and speed (4.56-second 40-yard dash) make him a candidate to be the personal protector on the punt return team. However, Driskel doesn't figure to be in position to compete for the starting quarterback job with QBs Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert. Driskel currently is the fourth QB on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Driskel has an uphill battle to win a starting quarterback job in San Fran this year or in the future, but his combination of size and speed is intriguing with Kelly at the helm. For now, he's a speculative late-round keeper pick. Avoid Driskel in all single-year drafts this fall.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick excited about offense

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 14:41:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (knee, shoulder, thumb) said he is eager to run the offense that head coach Chip Kelly has brought to the team because it is similar to the one he used in college. He said he believes the new offense will give him more chances to run the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has not been able to practice this offseason because of multiple surgeries but should be ready for training camp. He will be competing with Blaine Gabbert but probably would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job during camp.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick looking to improve play

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 14:25:01 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (knee, shoulder, thumb) has tried to improve his flexibility this offseason by stretching his back because it would tighten up on him in the past. He is looking to become more limber so he can be a more elusive runner, according to a source. Kaepernick is also wearing contact lenses to help his short-area vision and has a tinted visor on his helmet to protect the contacts and reduce the sunlight in his eyes.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick will have to compete with Blaine Gabbert for the starting job during training camp, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Kaepernick probably has more fantasy value at this point, but the winner of the job should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.
