San Francisco 49ers LB Nick Moody has taken over for LB Michael Wilhoite (leg) remains sidelined with a muscle strain. Moody has been working alongside LB NaVorro Bowman during the first three days of training camp, and he believes he now has the experience to open the regular season as a starter.

Fantasy Tip: If Kaepernick can put it all together, he has the weapons in the passing game and the scrambling ability to put up QB1 numbers. However, consistency remains a challenge, and it is best to draft him as a backup.

San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush was held out of training camp for the second day in a row Sunday, Aug. 2. "I'm not going to wait to see Reggie tired and (then) give him a break," head coach Jim Tomsula said. "He's been doing this for a long time. Our goal is to not get Reggie tired. He's in shape."
Fantasy Tip: Bush should make a solid RB3 in points-per-reception formats, but with Carlos Hyde likely handling a bulk of the between-the-tackle duties, Bush's exact workload remains to be seen.

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington was impressive as the No. 3 receiver during training camp Sunday, Aug. 2, catching a long touchdown from QB Colin Kaepernick and adding an acrobatic catch down the sidelines.
Fantasy Tip: Ellington has the speed to turn any catch into a big play, and if he wins the No. 3 receiver job, he could be worth a flier in deeper formats.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has impressed his teammates this offseason by improving the touch on his passes. FS Eric Reid said he's optimistic about how Kaepernick will do this year, especially with the touch he's seen on deep throws.
Fantasy Tip: If Kaepernick can be more accurate on his deep passes, the 49ers could certainly be a more dangerous offense, especially with new deep threat Torrey Smith. San Francisco may also try to use the running backs more in the passing game, which could aid Kaepernick in his accuracy. Still, Kaepernick should not be drafted as your starting quarterback.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is not believed to be injured and shouldn't be on the non-football injury list for long. Hyde suffered a calf injury during spring drills, but it's not expected to be an issue.
Fantasy Tip: If everything checks out, Hyde remains a mid-to-low RB2.

Fantasy Tip: The injury was not disclosed, so Hyde's status will need to be monitored heading into training camp. His fantasy value is hard to gauge until the injury and its extent are known.
