Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent DE Jacquies Smith (knee) recently met with the San Francisco 49ers, but the 49ers have not made him a contract offer at this time, according to general manager John Lynch. Lynch said the team wanted to see how Smith was recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent DE Jacquies Smith is visiting the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source. Smith, who was tendered at the original round level earlier this month after entering the league as an undrafted free agent, would not fetch the Buccaneers any draft pick compensation should he sign an offer sheet with the 49ers and Tampa Bay choose not to match.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has not ruled out the possibility of the 49ers re-signing free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick but did say the likelihood if it happening has dropped since the team has added QBs Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has not been linked to many teams this offseason, so he probably will have to wait before signing with a team. He will not have any fantasy value if he is a backup next season and would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he does start.

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer said he won't be content being a backup quarterback, and he believes he will have a leg up in a quarterback competition because he is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's system.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, Hoyer has to be considered the frontrunner to start for the 49ers next year, but he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end QB2.

Fantasy Tip: Hightower proved to be a serviceable back for the New Orleans Saints in his age-30 season in 2016, although he did more to anger Mark Ingram owners than he did on a consistent basis in fantasy. If he lands with the Niners, he would be the heavy favorite to be the direct backup to oft-injured Carlos Hyde.

The San Francisco 49ers are likely looking at positions other than quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after signing QB Brian Hoyer and QB Matt Barkley, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Fantasy Tip: If the 49ers do pass on one of the top quarterback prospects, it will likely mean Hoyer opens the year as the starter, but he would only be a low-end QB2 candidate.
