49ers | Colin Kaepernick may start Friday

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 13:19:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) could start the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, since QB Blaine Gabbert started the first two preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick and Gabbert continue to compete for the starting job but this will be Kaepernick's first time on the field this offseason. Kaepernick would be the more valuable option for fantasy owners, but neither quarterback should be a No. 1 quarterback for owners.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick set to debut Friday

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:13:25 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) is "on track" to play against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has flamed out over the past two seasons and is now battling for the starting job with Blaine Gabbert. Kaepernick owns significantly more upside, especially in fantasy, but he's also just returning from practice following offseason shoulder surgery and then a period of nursing soreness during his recovery. In single-QB leagues, Kaepernick and Gabbert are off the fantasy radar for now, but Kaepernick could prove to be a potential streaming option in favorable matchups before the season is done. It's a situation to monitor.

49ers | Bruce Ellington resumes practicing

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 18:49:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is expected to start in the slot for the Niners, and he could be a decent WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams if he holds onto the job and is able to produce.

49ers | SF receiver corps banged up

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 18:48:35 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WRs Eric Rogers (knee), DeAndre Smelter (hamstring) and Bryce Treggs (knee) were not at practice Monday, Aug. 22, as the team is a bit banged up at receiver and might need to sign a receiver for the remainder of the preseason.

49ers | Shaun Draughn nursing injury

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 18:47:56 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (ribs) wore a blue jersey Monday, Aug. 22, at practice signifying for him not to be hit during practice. He took a blow to the ribs in last week's practice and was sidelined for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn is No. 2 on the depth chart behind Carlos Hyde, so he could see significant touches in the offense if he is able to get back on the field sooner rather than later. He is still only worth a late-round flyer in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams as long as Hyde remains healthy.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick back at practice

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 12:42:27 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) participated in a full warmup practice Monday, Aug. 22. It was his first such participation since Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Maybe now Kaep can ramp up San Fran's quarterback competition. Blaine Gabbert has been decent in the first two preseason games, but he hasn't really flashed. Kaepernick still has a chance to prove he deserves to start, but neither Gabbert nor Kaepernick are starting caliber QBs in traditional leagues.

49ers | Shaun Draughn is the backup

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 11:11:07 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn is the No. 2 running back, according to head coach Chip Kelly. RBs DuJuan Harris and Mike Davis are competing for the No. 3 position.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn made a good impression last year, primarily in the passing game. He makes for a nice complement to Carlos Hyde and could see more work than expected if the 49ers are consistently behind in games. Draughn is a solid handcuff for those who draft Hyde should be taken as a late-round flier at the latest.
