Fantasy Tip: Ellington was in line to open the year as the starting slot receiver, but a serious injury could change that. If healthy, he could be a decent WR5 in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Gabbert is the leading candidate for the starting job and would have to struggle to lose the job. Gabbert had some success as a starter last season but would only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers LBs Michael Wilhoite, Ray Ray Armstrong and Gerald Hodges are still competing for the starting inside linebacker job next to LB NaVorro Bowman, but defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil said the competition could continue during the regular season.

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.

San Francisco 49ers DE Arik Armstead (shoulder) has been participating in practice this week, but his status for the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, is uncertain at this point.

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.

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.

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.

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.
