49ers | No rushing TDs for Carlos Hyde after October

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 10:01:16 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde scored six times as a rusher in September and October, but he failed to find the end zone on the ground after that, settling instead for three receiving touchdowns over that time. In addition, five of Hyde's rushing scores came against NFC West division rivals.

Fantasy Tip: Four of his rushing TDs came in games decided by 15 points or more, so there is a flukish component to his final line. Hyde ran for 394 yards on 63 carries in December alone after rushing for 449 yards on 109 attempts in September and October combined. There's no question Hyde thrived in Chip Kelly's up-tempo, shotgun-heavy offense, but he should maintain similar fantasy value as the likely unquestioned workhorse in new head coach Kyle Shanahan's running back-friendly offense.

49ers | SF interested in Jacob Tamme?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 07:01:24 -0800

The San Francisco 49ers could be interested in impending free-agent TE Jacob Tamme if he doesn't re-sign with the Atlanta Falcons, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: The soon-to-be 32-year-old had 22 catches for 210 yards and three touchdowns in eight games before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in November. Former Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is now the head coach in San Francisco but the 49ers recently gave TE Vance McDonald a five-year contract extension, so it's unlikely he would play a major role in the offense if he lands there. At best, Tamme should be viewed as a TE2 in deeper seasonal leagues regardless of where he's playing in 2017.

49ers | San Francisco wants big plays

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 21:19:03 -0800

San Francisco 49ers running backs coach Bobby Turner said the plan is to use the running game to set up big plays down the field. "It's tough to run the ball," Turner said. "We might only get a yard on that play. But by doing that, being consistent and continually trying to run the ball, you exploit them through the air with the play-action game."

49ers | Torrey Smith excited for new offense

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:58:22 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith said he is excited for head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense because he "tailors it to people's strengths."

Fantasy Tip: Big plays were absent from San Francisco's offense last year, and Smith had arguably the worst season of his career. He looks like a WR5 heading into 2017.

49ers | Brian Hoyer on San Francisco's radar?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:22:09 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer could be pursued by the San Francisco 49ers, according to beat writer Matt Barrows.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Hoyer were to end up with the starting gig in San Francisco, he would be a low-end QB2 at best.

49ers | Carlos Hyde has room to grow

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 20:38:48 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is a "work in progress," according to former running backs coach Tom Rathman. "He's moving in the right direction," Rathman said. "He still has some growing to do as a football player to get to the level of player that everybody wants to be."

Fantasy Tip: Hyde's career has been slowed by injuries, but he scored nine times and nearly rushed for 1,000 yards in 13 games last season. As the clear lead back in San Francisco, Hyde will be a volume-based, low-end RB1 in 2017.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick open to returning to SF

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 22:00:54 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is open to returning to the team in 2017, according to "those close to him." The 29-year-old is due to earn nearly $15 million in base salary, but he can also opt out of the deal and enter free agency, which begins on March 9. San Francisco also has the option of releasing him with little ramifications to their salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick ended up putting together a pretty nice season, finishing with 16 touchdowns versus only four interceptions, while recording a 90.7 QB rating -- his best since 2013. Furthermore, he averaged nearly 40 rushing yards per game. With a new coaching staff and general manager, San Francisco ultimately may decide to go in a different direction, but if Kaepernick still has a starting job next year, he could end up being a solid QB2 option.
