49ers | Bruce Ellington lands on the IR

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 13:02:31 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 30. He is out for the season.

Fantasy Tip: This is a significant blow for the 49ers' already subpar offense. Torrey Smith's status as San Francisco's No. 1 receiver solidifies, while Quinton Patton likely becomes the No. 2 receiver and gets a good bump in fantasy value. Even still, Patton should only be looked at in later rounds and should be thought of as no more than a WR4 in deeper leagues.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick to play in finale

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 10:19:16 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will play in the preseason finale, and QB Blaine Gabbert will sit out, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Gabbert appears to be the guy, but he really doesn't merit much fantasy value aside from depth. Kaepernick has more upside, but he might need a change of scenery to harness it.

49ers | OC expects Colin Kaepernick to make team

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 17:01:21 -0700

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said he expects QB Colin Kaepernick to be on the roster when the regular season starts but that it is not his decision.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Kaepernick is losing the battle for the starting quarterback job to Blaine Gabbert, but head coach Chip Kelly said Kaepernick is still an option. He probably would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job and can be avoided if he is a backup.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick on chopping block?

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 20:53:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick faces a "very big uphill battle" to make the 53-man roster, according to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com.

Fantasy Tip: If Kaepernick is cut, Blaine Gabbert would have a little more job security. Chip Kelly has worked miracles before with quarterbacks, but Gabbert remains a speculative QB2.

49ers | San Francisco adds Jeremy Kerley

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 11:26:19 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Kerley was acquired by the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 28, in exchange for OG Brandon Thomas, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Kerley likely will receive limited playing time with the 49ers and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

49ers | QB competition still open in San Francisco

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 16:48:52 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert and QB Colin Kaepernick are still competing for the starting job, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Gabbert has done little to win the job this preseason, while Kaepernick did more to create news with his pre-game actions last night than he did with his play. The winner is a good bet to carry QB2 value at various points during the season thanks to the volume of plays head coach Chip Kelly's offense usually generate.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick has quiet performance

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:38:02 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick went 2-for-6 for 14 yards in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26. He also rushed for 18 yards on four carries. Kaepernick said he believes he still has a chance to win the starting quarterback job.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick appears to be behind Blaine Gabbert for the starting quarterback position but still has a chance since head coach Chip Kelly has not named a starter yet. He would have more fantasy value than Gabbert but likely would only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he wins the job.

49ers | Shaun Draughn misses another game

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:26:23 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (ribs) was not able to play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, because of injured ribs.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn will be the No. 2 running back this season and probably will not need to play again before the regular season. He could be a late-round option in leagues as a handcuff to Carlos Hyde but likely will stay on the bench most weeks.

49ers | Carlos Hyde suffers concussion

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:19:36 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (concussion) suffered a concussion during the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hyde will have to pass his concussion tests before he is cleared to play again, so owners will need to monitor the situation. Hyde should receive most of the playing time at the position this season and should be a decent No. 2 running back in most leagues.

49ers | Bruce Ellington injures hamstring

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:40:12 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) limped to the locker room against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was in line to open the year as the starting slot receiver, but a serious injury could change that. If healthy, he could be a decent WR5 in PPR formats.
