49ers | Quinton Patton primed for breakout year?

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:04:24 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton is feeling much better this offseason than he has in previous seasons, largely because of working out with QB Colin Kaepernick this offseason. "It's benefitted me knowing we're throwing the ball together and he's telling me what he's seeing and I'm telling him what I'm seeing, and just knowing where to be and when I need to be there," Patton said.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Patton could be well on his way to a breakout season as he develops a rapport with Kaepernick. He seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 wide receiver position behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith. Until he can prove himself on the field, however, he's in WR4 territory.

49ers | Big role for Torrey Smith?

Sat, 23 May 2015 19:56:04 -0700

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.

49ers | Vernon Davis ready to rebound?

Sat, 23 May 2015 19:45:54 -0700

San Fancisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis caught a pair of red-zone touchdowns from QB Colin Kaepernick during practice Thursday, May 21, and he added a 25-yard reception on a deep crossing route.

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.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick looking good

Sat, 23 May 2015 19:13:45 -0700

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.

49ers | Kendall Hunter moving well

Thu, 21 May 2015 20:43:19 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (knee) made several quick bursts during practice Thursday, May 21.

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.

49ers | Reggie Bush wants to return punts

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:29:10 -0700

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.

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:06:45 -0700

49ers | Carlos Hyde nursing injury

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:00:16 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (leg) is nursing a leg injury and did not practice Thursday, May 21. A timetable for his return was not disclosed.

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.
