49ers | Vernon Davis doing better

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:33:18 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) said his ankle is doing much better and he is reportedly looking better with no sign of a limp.

Fantasy Tip: It's sounding more and more like Davis will be able to play this week. His FantasyScore price of $7,100 might be worth it in what could potentially turn into a shootout with the Philadelphia Eagles.

49ers | Frank Gore not happy with offense

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 10:43:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore wasn't pleased with the offensive game plan in which they unleashed five-receiver sets against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3 because of a lack of healthy tight ends. The receiver-heavy look didn't feature a running back, and the Niners went with a no-huddle offense. QB Colin Kaepernick's 78.4 completion percentage (29-for-37) was his best as a starter. Gore had just one carry in the second half and finished with six rushes for just 10 yards. RB Carlos Hyde had three carries for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: This approach won't always be the game plan. Expect a more balanced focus on offense with Vernon Davis (ankle) returns to the starting lineup. However, Gore's involvement should be monitored. If he continues to lose touches, he probably won't be much more than a flex play.

49ers | Derek Carrier starts

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 10:15:42 -0700

49ers | Frank Gore's role dwindling

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 08:28:13 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore had just 10 yards on six carries Sunday, Sept. 21. He received 16 carries in Week 1 and 13 carries in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gore's role was expected to be reduced this season, but the team has gone with a pass-happy approach. Colin Kaepernick completed a career-high 78.4 percent of his passes in Week 3, and the offense doesn't appear to be changing in favor of Gore anytime soon. Gore is little more than an RB3 or flex option right now.

49ers | Stevie Johnson has big game

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 20:40:39 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson led the team with 103 receiving yards in the Week 3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and it was the first time a receiver on the team other than WRs Michael Crabtree or Anquan Boldin had more than 100 yards since WR Josh Morgan did it in 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson can't be relied on for this kind of production often. The Niners abandoned the run game surprisingly, and the Arizona cornerbacks forced Colin Kaepernick to go to his third receiver more often.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick ready to go

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:51:39 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (back) is active for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick should not be limited by his injury and could be a solid option on FantasyScore at $7,500.

49ers | Vernon Davis will not play

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:36:45 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) has been declared inactive for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: With Vance McDonald also missing the game, Derek Carrier probably will get the start. Carrier only costs $3,700 on FantasyScore this week, but owners likely can find better options.

49ers | Vernon Davis unlikely to go

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 07:21:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) is doubtful to play Sunday, Sept. 21, and was on crutches until Thursday, Sept. 18. TE Derek Carrier would start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Carrier ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is a basement option in FantasyScore. Use him if you need the cap space elsewhere.

49ers | Vernon Davis' status uncertain

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 07:59:32 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) could be a game-time decision for Week 3. Davis said he was encouraged with how he felt after some light running and catching drills Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Davis probably would be limited if he is active for the game. Davis costs $7,400 on FantasyScore this week, but owners should look to spend their money on a healthier tight end.

49ers | Vernon Davis listed as questionable

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 16:50:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) did not practice Friday, Sept. 19, and he is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: At $7400, or 14.8 percent of your FantasyScore salary, Davis is much too risky to start in Week 3. He very well could be sidelined. In fact, with Vance McDonald also hurting, Derek Carrier could make the start. At $3700, or just 7.4 percent of FantasyScore salary, he is a nice sleeper if he gets the nod.
