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.

49ers | Vance McDonald emerging as weapon

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 21:01:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald has caught five passes for 92 yards from QB Blaine Gabbert through two preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: He continues to show chemistry with Gabbert, and McDonald could end up being San Francisco's best weapon in the passing game this year. He is a sneaky TE1 candidate.

49ers | Shaun Draughn suffered rib injury last week

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 17:23:43 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (ribs) missed his team's preseason game against the Denver Broncos on Saturday, Aug. 20, due to a rib injury he suffered during the teams' joint practices earlier in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Davis may have had a chance to wrestle the No. 2 job away from Draughn, but he fumbled twice against Denver. At the moment, Draughn is still likely hanging on to the backup job behind oft-injured Carlos Hyde and may actually have some standalone value if he manages to keep his spot on the depth chart. As long as he remains ahead of Davis on the depth chart, the 28-year-old journeyman needs to be handcuffed to Hyde in as many leagues as possible.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick showing improvement

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 07:40:49 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) displayed improved velocity on his passes during pregame warmups Saturday, Aug. 20, and remains on target to resume practicing this week, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The team remains hopeful that he will play in the next preseason game versus the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is engaged in a battle this preseason for San Francisco's starting quarterback job with Blaine Gabbert. Although Kaepernick has a higher ceiling, neither player should be viewed as anything more than a QB2 in traditional fantasy leagues.

49ers | Bryce Treggs injures MCL

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 07:08:37 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Bryce Treggs (knee) left the preseason game against the Denver Broncos Saturday, Aug. 20, after sustaining a medial collateral ligament injury. He is likely to undergo an MRI exam and will probably not need to undergo surgery.

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 07:08:19 -0700

49ers | Bruce Ellington dealing with sore ankle

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 18:26:12 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington (ankle) hasn't practiced much this week and is questionable to play against the Denver Broncos Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: If he can stay healthy, Ellington has a chance to thrive as the slot receiver in Chip Kelly's offense. He could be a late-round steal, especially in PPR formats.

49ers | Young Niners receivers dormant

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 08:06:25 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR DiAndre Campbell, WR Bryce Treggs and WR Aaron Burbridge have yet to stand out, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The trio will have a good practice and fade in the next.

Fantasy Tip: None of the three possess enough upside to draft in fantasy right now. However, the team lacks depth, and it's possible one of them emerges in time.
