San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter may need to run with more confidence in the final preseason game if he wants to guarantee a spot on the final roster. The team likes Hunter, but he is not guaranteed a spot at this point because the team has other players at the position.
Fantasy Tip: Hunter is competing for one of the backup spots at running back, so he will need a good showing in the preseason game. He likely will not see much playing time if he makes the team and should not be an option in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Hayne is averaging 7.8 yards per carry this preseason and has also made an impact as a punt returner. Hayne should have a good chance to make the roster and could be a waiver wire option during the season if he receives more playing time as the season goes on.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, but his injury is not believed to be serious. McDonald likely will not play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and his status for the final preseason game is uncertain.
Fantasy Tip: McDonald probably will the team's No. 2 tight end this season and will see limited snaps during the regular season. McDonald should not be a fantasy option unless Vernon Davis suffers an injury.
