Fantasy Tip: Smith is coming off his best game of the season and appears to have a solid chemistry with Colin Kaepernick. He should see a solid amount of targets this week and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald posted only 25 yards in his last game and was targeted only two times during the game. It is not known how he will be used with Colin Kaepernick as the starter, so owners may want to look for other options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Kerley was limited to 12 yards in his first game with Colin Kaepernick as the starting quarterback but could be more involved in the passing game this week. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options.

Fantasy Tip: Dawson should be able to play in Week 7, but owners likely will be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had his best fantasy day of the season in Colin Kaepernick's debut last week, but he still has yet to record more than three catches in any game this season. Tampa Bay's secondary is weak enough for Smith to have a big day, but a Carlos Hyde-less offense this week could also result in Tampa Bay giving more to Smith's side. Smith is best left on fantasy benches in deeper leagues or the waiver wire in leagues with smaller benches for now.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn was limited to just one rush and no receptions on one target in Week 7 with RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) exiting early. He and RB Mike Davis are expected to split carries if Hyde is sidelined, according to head coach Chip Kelly.
Fantasy Tip: Draughn has the experience, but Davis had six touches to just one for Draughn last week. Draughn would be worth a look as a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues against the league's 16th rush defense.

San Francisco 49ers RB Mike Davis is likely to split carries with RB Shaun Draughn in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) expected to sit. Head coach Chip Kelly suggested the workload split Wednesday, Oct. 19. "We'd rotate all the backs in that case," Kelly said. "If Carlos can't go, you'd see both those guys."
Fantasy Tip: Davis had five carries and a reception to just one rush for Draughn, so Davis could be a deep one-week sleeper for fantasy owners in deeper leagues and DFS play against the Buccaneers rush defense, which is statistically 16th in the NFL.

San Francisco 49ers CB Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) said Wednesday, Oct. 19, that he will return to the field in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after missing the past three games due to a quadriceps injury.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) said Wednesday, Oct. 19, that he expects to miss just one game. "It's definitely not long term, which is good," Hyde said. He expects to return in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints after the team's bye in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: With Hyde sidelined it will be Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis sidelined. Avoid Hyde until he is healthy and can make it through a full game without any setbacks.

San Francisco 49ers CB Rashard Robinson (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19. OG Josh Garnett (foot) and SS Jaquiski Tartt (quadriceps) were limited during practice. DT Arik Armstead (shoulder), OG Zane Beadles (ankle), DT DeForest Buckner (foot), DT Quinton Dial (knee), DT Glenn Dorsey (knee) and CB Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald was able to play in the last game but was held to 25 yards during that game. He will continue to see a decent number of targets in the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
