San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington had three catchers for 86 yards to lead all receivers in the team's final preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Sept. 3, including a 70-yard touchdown. He also had a 60-yard punt return that was called back due to a penalty. Head coach Jim Tomsula had a one-on-one conversation with Ellington this offseason about taking better care of his body. Ellington had hamstring issues this offseason and missed much of training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Ellington has youth on his side and could be a surprise if he can stay healthy and win the No. 3 receiving job in San Fran. However, in traditional fantasy football leagues, he'll be a waiver wire target early in the season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jarryd Hayne had 58 yards on 10 carries in the final preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Sept. 3, and he finished the preseason as the second leading rusher with 175 yards on the ground. Hayne also caught two passes for 17 yards against the Chargers and had a 28-yard punt return.
Fantasy Tip: Hayne has been one of the more impressive offensive weapons for the Niners this preseason, and it seems like he's destined to make the team, mainly because of his versatility. The former rugby star is unlikely to make any major contributions on the fantasy side, but he could be intriguing in much deeper leagues if your league counts individual points for return yardage.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter may need to run with more confidence in the final preseason game if he wants to guarantee a spot on the final roster. The team likes Hunter, but he is not guaranteed a spot at this point because the team has other players at the position.
Fantasy Tip: Hunter is competing for one of the backup spots at running back, so he will need a good showing in the preseason game. He likely will not see much playing time if he makes the team and should not be an option in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington missed part of training camp because of a hamstring injury but played in the last preseason game and should see solid playing time Thursday. Ellington probably should not be selected in most drafts but could be a waiver wire option if he plays well early.

Fantasy Tip: Hayne is averaging 7.8 yards per carry this preseason and has also made an impact as a punt returner. Hayne should have a good chance to make the roster and could be a waiver wire option during the season if he receives more playing time as the season goes on.

San Francisco 49ers DT Darnell Dockett (ribs) said he's dealing with a broken rib. "Yeah, it's cartilage," said head coach Jim Tomsula. "The crack is in the cartilage, which is treated like a contusion. It's not the bone. If it was the bone, we would be talking about something different (and more serious)." The Niners expect Dockett to be ready for the season opener Sept. 14 against the Minnesota Vikings. Dockett has been working as a pass rusher on the left side in the nickel defense.
