San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith was a featured part of the offense during practice Thursday, May 21, connecting with QB Colin Kaepernick on several plays and catching a touchdown from QB Blaine Gabbert in the red zone.
Fantasy Tip: Smith still figures to do a lot of his damage via big plays down the field, but he should see enough targets on a weekly basis to warrant consideration as a WR2 in traditional formats. In PPR leagues, he is more of a WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Davis was a non-factor on offense for large stretches of last season, but he still has the athleticism to be a productive player. If he continues to enjoy a larger role in the offense, he could easily return to TE1 status in 2015, and he is worth taking a chance on if you wait until later in drafts to address the position.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was accurate on his throws with his new throwing motion in practice Thursday, May 21. His passes still had their usual zip, and he was able to remain accurate while throwing on the run when plays broke down.
Fantasy Tip: Although it was just practice, the news is certainly encouraging. Kaepernick has a ton of upside because of his scrambling ability, but his inconsistent passing has held him back in the past. There is no guarantee he will make the leap to the next level in 2015, but the potential reward is worth the risk if you wait until later in fantasy drafts to take a quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Hunter's recovery from a torn ACL that cost him all of last season is going well, but he returns to a backfield that now features Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush. At one time, Hunter looked like a potential heir to Frank Gore. Now, he is likely third in the pecking order for touches.

San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush has expressed his desire to the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff to return punts this season. "I told the coaches I wanted to return punts again. And they were excited about it," Bush said. "We're still working at it, still chipping away. And we're looking forward to being and all-around great special teams."
Fantasy Tip: Whether the role as a punt returner will decrease Bush's role in the 49ers' backfield remains to be seen. He'll have more value in leagues that reward returns. He has RB3 potential in point-per-reception leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Hyde and Reggie Bush will form a formidable one-two punch in San Francisco this year, with Hyde likely receiving the bulk of the carries and Bush playing more of a passing down role. Hyde has RB2 potential while Bush will hold more value in point-per-reception leagues and could end up in RB3 territory.

San Francisco 49ers QB Dylan Thompson received praise from head coach Jim Tomsula Saturday, May 16. "He's got those … intangibles," Tomsula said. "Then you watch the tape [and] this guy can throw a football around. He spins it. We're excited about him. We really are."
