49ers | Torrey Smith should be fine

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:36:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (ankle) suffered an apparent ankle injury during the team's Week 3 game, but head coach Chip Kelly said Smith will be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is off to a decent start this season but has caught only eight passes on 20 targets. He should continue to be one of the top targets in the 49ers' passing game but probably should only be a flex option in most leagues.

49ers | Vance McDonald may miss time

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:31:26 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald's (hip) status for Week 4 is uncertain because of a hip injury he suffered in Week 3. Head coach Chip Kelly said McDonald is not dealing with a long-term injury, but his status will not be known until later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if McDonald will have to miss time because of the injury. McDonald has been off to a solid start this season, but owners should have other options ready in case he is ruled out.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert remains the starter

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 06:39:58 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert will remain the starting quarterback, in part, because he's better in practice than QB Colin Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: Gabbert has been atrocious as a starter for much of his career, and he warrants no fantasy value for now.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick could start soon

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 12:16:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) may reclaim his starting job once he's back to full health, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "I don't think he's 100 percent right now, so that's why he's our No. 2," Kelly said.

Fantasy Tip: Just like he did in the preseason, Blaine Gabbert hasn't exactly done anything to run away with the job and doesn't bring nearly the same level of athleticism to the table that a fully healthy Kaepernick does. While Kaepernick probably isn't going to be the long-term answer for Kelly either, his willingness to go deep may open things up for a running game that has generated a lot of production in garbage time. He'll be a low-end QB2 at best if/when he is named the starter.

49ers | Carlos Hyde has 100-yard game

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:45:58 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 103 yards and scored twice Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 37-18 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: The fact Hyde had two scores against this defense is encouraging. Right about now Hyde is the only thing going right with this offense. It looks like Hyde is safe to use as an RB2 or RB3 option since he was able to run against Seattle.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert struggles in Week 3

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:41:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert threw an interception and finished with 119 yards passing Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 37-18 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: And the drum beat gets louder. The 49ers have a real problem on their hands. Keep Gabbert as the starter or bench him and go with Colin Kaepernick and the media maelstrom that is sure to follow? Right now, the best thing is to stay away from the Niners' passing game.

49ers | Vance McDonald unable to return

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 15:35:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (hip) suffered a hip injury in the Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks and was unable to return, the team said Sunday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald should be reserved in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls 'uncertain' to go vs. 49ers

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:14:01 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) is "uncertain" to play Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Pete Carroll. On Wednesday, Sept. 21, Carroll described the injury as a strain in a muscle around Rawls' shin.

Fantasy Tip: Carroll is expected to speak with the media later today, so perhaps he'll expand on Rawls' status then. For now, the second-year back should not be counted on to play this weekend. Christine Michael has thrived thus far and should be expected to carry nearly a full load in a plus-matchup. As a result, he should be a fine RB2 or even better flex option this week.
