49ers | Colin Kaepernick had previous trouble with Carolina

Fri, 10 Jan 2014 23:33:53 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick had one of his worst games as an NFL player the first time the 49ers played the Carolina Panthers. In that game, he completed 11 of 22 passes for 91 yards and no touchdowns. The Panthers also sacked Kaepernick six times and intercepted one of his passes. Kaepernick completed passes to six receivers against the Panthers. However, three of those players aren't on the roster or are out for the season -- WR Mario Manningham, WR Kyle Williams and WR Bruce Miller.

Chiefs | Hope to use Kyle Williams

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 12:42:54 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs hope WR Kyle Williams will be able to help their offense when he's ready to play. "He can be explosive with the ball in his hands," offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. "We know his ability to block. He's a tough, physical kid with some speed. We've just got to get him in practice and see what he can do in situations where he has a chance to make a play." Kansas City may look to use him on the outside after he was mostly used out of the slot with the San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs will use him as a backup punt and kickoff returner, too.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Williams is familiar with Alex Smith from their time together in San Fran. However, Williams still has Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster in front of him. Keep him in mind in very deep leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Kyle Williams fumbled the opening kickoff of the game, muffed a punt out of bounds and had two passes from QB Colin Kaepernick deflect off his hands. Williams caught just one pass for seven yards. When asked whether Williams' job was in jeopardy, coach Jim Harbaugh did not address the situation. "We don't want to take about controversy on who the returner is," Harbaugh said. "There's no returner controversy or anything like that."

49ers | Jonathan Baldwin has two catches

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 13:09:48 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Jonathan Baldwin had two catches for 19 yards in his first game of the season while WR Marlon Moore was a healthy inactive after having just one catch for six yards in the first three weeks. "It was good to see him get out there and compete," head coach Jim Harbaugh said. "I've got a good feeling about him." WR Kyle Williams did not have a single catch Thursday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: In deeper leagues, you may want to take a flier on Baldwin in case he winds up gaining chemistry with Colin Kaepernick and taking the No. 2 wideout role from Williams.

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 06:34:20 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin praised WRs Kyle Williams, Quinton Patton and Marlon Moore, saying they are talented and want to make their mark on the league. "They're talented," Boldin said. "You'll see for yourself come Sunday and each game that we play. Those guys are definitely going to make plays. They're ready to make their mark on this league. I'm not worried about them at all."

49ers | Kyle Williams listed as starter

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 16:51:53 -0700

The San Francisco 49ers list WR Kyle Williams as a starting wide receiver opposite WR Anquan Boldin on their initial depth chart heading into the regular season opener against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Williams should still only be considered as a WR4 or flex option in most standard fantasy leagues, and perhaps as a WR3/4 or flex play in formats which reward individual return yardage.

49ers | LaMichael James nursing sprain

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 11:09:10 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament. With James likely to be sidelined for at least a few weeks, WR Kyle Williams is likely to see a bigger role on punt returns, with WR Quinton Patton potentially seeing more of a role in the kick return game.

Bills | Kyle Williams expected to practice

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 21:29:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams (Achilles') is set to practice after having a procedure to take care of a bone spur on his heel near the Achilles' tendon. He had the same procedure done on his left Achilles' last season. General manager Doug Whaley feels Williams is ready. "As of now he's full go," Whaley said Friday in a radio interview. "I think they're going to limit him in practice and ease him into it and not put too much on him right off the bat, but he is not going to be on PUP."

49ers | Mario Manningham a month away

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 13:22:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Mario Manningham (knee) is roughly a month away from returning to action on the field, and the competition behind WR Anquan Boldin will be furious. WRs Kyle Williams, Ricardo Lockette, A.J. Jenkins, Quinton Patton and Marlon Moore will be looking to step up in the absence of WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles').

Fantasy Tip: Other than Manningham, who is a big question mark, the Niners have a cast of unproven wideouts to help out Boldin in the receiving game. Williams, Jenkins and Patton figure to have the greatest chance of locking down the No. 2 spot, and all three will be end-game gambles in deep leagues in drafts. The absense of a proven receive might benefit Vernon Davis the most.

Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:14:32 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WRs Chad Hall, Marlon Moore and Kassim Osgood are simply battling to make the roster, and the ability of Moore and Osgood on special teams are likely to help their resumes. WR Charly Martin will also be in the group believed to be battling for the fifth receiver job on the depth chart. WRs Mario Manningham (knee) and Kyle Williams (knee) are also in the mix, but start training camp on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list.

49ers | Kyle Williams early favorite for X spot

Mon, 17 Jun 2013 10:11:11 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Kyle Williams is the pre-training camp favorite for the "X" wide receiver spot, ahead of A.J. Jenkins, who holds the slot advantage, and others.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect that to translate into consistent fantasy production, as sleeper candidates Jenkins, Ricardo Lockette and Quinton Patton should have a say in targets with Michael Crabtree (Achilles') on the sidelines.

49ers | Kyle Williams might be ready for camp

Wed, 01 May 2013 18:54:45 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Kyle Williams (knee), who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in November, is likely to be ready for the start of training camp. Williams was the team's slot receiver until sustaining the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will be in the mix for the No. 3 wideout job, and he also should be in the mix for punt return duties. However, unless he is named as the winner of the battle for the No. 3 job, his fantasy value is negligible.
