San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald signed a five-year, $35 million extension through the 2021 season Friday, Dec. 9, and general manager Trent Baalke said McDonald has "only scratched the surface" of his potential.
Fantasy Tip: McDonald is enjoying his best season, and he could sneak into TE1 territory in Week 14 with a friendly matchup with the Jets on tap.

San Francisco 49ers OL Joe Staley (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 9. DL Quinton Dial (elbow) and LB Aaron Lynch (ankle) were limited participants, while LB Eli Harold (toe), DL Ronald Blair (hamstring), Glenn Dorsey (elbow) and C Daniel Kilgore (hamstring) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn should be able to suit up on Sunday, but with starting running back Carlos Hyde healthy, the 29-year-old really isn't a viable fantasy option, even in the deepest of leagues. He's taken only five handoffs combined over the last three games.

San Francisco 49ers OT Joe Staley (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8. DT Quinton Dial (elbow), DT Glenn Dorsey (knee), LB Eli Harold (toe) and LB Aaron Lynch (ankle) were limited. DT Ronald Blair (hamstring) and C Daniel Kilgore (hamstring) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn is a valuable receiving weapon for the 49ers, but he still plays behind Carlos Hyde. Draughn only has value when the 49ers are down and have to throw, but even then he's not guaranteed to produce. He can be left on fantasy benches.

San Francisco 49ers DT Quinton Dial (elbow) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7. DT Glenn Dorsey (knee), LB Eli Harold (toe) and LB Aaron Lynch (ankle) were limited. DT Ronald Blair (hamstring) and C Daniel Kilgore (hamstring) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn is always a threat to make an impact in the passing game, especially since the 49ers are prone to play from behind. That being said, Draughn's fantasy value is still pretty limited behind Carlos Hyde and he is not a recommended start in any given week.

Fantasy Tip: After about a month-long run as the second-best quarterback in fantasy behind Aaron Rodgers, the 49ers only allowed Kaepernick to throw five passes and run six times before benching him in the fourth quarter during what was supposed to be a very good matchup against an injury-riddled Chicago Bears defense. The Jets arguably present a better matchup and he'll be at home this time around, but the risk of trusting him outside of a contrarian play in DFS is just too high during the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald played well in the previous four games but was quiet against the Bears. He should still see a decent amount of targets no matter the quarterback and can be a starting option against favorable matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Hyde has been a reliable player for the 49ers this season but has gone five games without a touchdown. He will continue to receive plenty of carries moving forward and should be a fine No. 2 running back in most leagues.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was benched in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 13 after he completed only one of his five passes for four yards during the game. He also sacked five times during the game and lost 25 yards. Kaepernick was replaced by QB Blaine Gabbert during the game.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Kaepernick will remain the starting quarterback or if Gabbert will take over the job. Kaepernick played well before Week 13, but owners may want to avoid the 49ers quarterback situation for the rest of the season.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will void his contract after the season and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to sources. Kaepernick has not ruled out re-signing with the 49ers during the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has posted decent numbers since taking over the starting job and has six touchdowns and one interception over the last three games. Kaepernick can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against certain opponents moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been an all-or-nothing fantasy play throughout his career, and he simply isn't worth owning when he isn't connecting on big plays.

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton (concussion) and LB Aaron Lynch (ankle) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable for Week 13. OG Zane Beadles (ankle, knee), DT Ronald Blair (hamstring), DT Quinton Dial (hamstring), DT Glenn Dorsey (knee), LB Eli Harold (toe), C Daniel Kilgore (calf, hamstring) and CB Rashard Robinson (knee) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.
