• Marquise Goodwin - WR
    Posted 11/13/18 1:42am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (head) briefly exited on two occasions in the team's Week 10 game Monday, Nov. 12, opposite the New York Giants. Goodwin initially departed following a catch late in the third quarter due to a hit to the helmet from LB Alec Ogletree. He returned in the beginning of the fourth quarter, and after a pass that deflected off his hands that led to an interception, Goodwin was slow to get up and went back into the medical tent for observation before returning late in the quarter.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin actually fared pretty well Monday, amassing his second-highest yardage total (69 yards) of the campaign while tying a season high with five targets. The fact he was able to return to the game in both instances in which he had to exit probably means he won't have to miss any time, especially with the 49ers having their bye week coming up.

  • Nick Mullens - QB
    Posted 11/13/18 4:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens will remain the starting quarterback following the Week 11 bye, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Mullens fell back down to earth in his second career start Monday night, but he played well enough to keep the starting job for now. He still can't be started in traditional leagues.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR
    Posted 11/13/18 4:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) is expected to return to practice following the 49ers' Week 11 bye.

    Huddle Up: Garcon hasn't done much when he has been healthy this year, totaling just 286 yards and one touchdown in eight games. He can only be played in good matchups as a desperate flex in deeper leagues.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB
    Posted 11/13/18 5:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RBs Jerick McKinnon (knee) and Matt Breida will likely see significant time on the field together in 2019, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Shanahan noted during his media availability session Tuesday that he envisioned seeing the two backs in the backfield this season prior to McKinnon's ACL tear. The expectation now, as it was this summer pre-injury, is that McKinnon will serve as the Devonta Freeman to Breida's Tevin Coleman if the former doesn't encounter any setbacks in his recovery. Both backs figure to be RB2 candidates for fantasy purposes in 2019.

  • Nick Mullens - QB
    Posted 11/12/18 8:49pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens went 27-for-39 for 250 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Mullens has played well since being named the starting quarterback, but owners will need to see if he keeps the job after the Week 11 bye. He would have a favorable matchup in Week 12 if he keeps the job.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR
    Posted 11/12/18 9:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin caught four passes for 69 yards against the New York Giants in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Goodwin has been targeted at least five times in three of the last five games and has three touchdowns during that span. He will have a favorable matchup in Week 12 and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 11/12/18 9:00pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught nine passes for 83 yards against the New York Giants in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has been targeted at least six times in eight of the 10 games this season and has recorded 75 yards or more in six of those games. He has been one of the best tight ends in the NFL this season and is a weekly must-start option in all leagues.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 11/12/18 8:55pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed for 101 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the New York Giants in Week 10. He also caught three passes for 31 yards and one touchdown during the game.

    Huddle Up: Breida recorded his second 100-yard game of the season and has received at least 12 carries in four of the last five games. He will continue to receive plenty of touches after the Week 11 bye and should be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy running back against most opponents.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 11/10/18 12:21pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) is participating in practice Saturday, Nov. 10, in a non-contact jersey but is still expected to play in the Week 10 game.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has been one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should have a favorable matchup if he plays. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR
    Posted 11/10/18 12:26pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) is not participating in practice Saturday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Garcon's status in the near future. He will be a risky option since the 49ers play on Monday Night Football, so owners may want to bench him even if he is active for the game.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 11/8/18 12:56pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Kittle only saw four targets last week, but he made them count for 108 yards and a touchdown. The New York Giants have been stingy versus tight ends, but Kittle is a staple of TE1 territory.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR
    Posted 11/8/18 12:59pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) was held out of practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Garcon finally found the end zone in his eighth game of the season and, coincidentally, in Nick Mullens' first career start. Look back for updates on Garcon's status this weekend, but he's no more than a flex play if he's active.

  • Nick Mullens - QB
    Posted 11/6/18 1:08pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens was informed by head coach Kyle Shanahan that he will remain the starter this week.

    Huddle Up: Mullens went off for 262 yards and three touchdowns in his first professional football game, albeit versus the lowly Oakland Raiders. Don't expect him to keep up that pace, though. He's only a legitimate fantasy starter in superflex leagues.

  • Nick Mullens - QB
    Posted 11/4/18 6:25am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens is likely to remain the team's starting quarterback, although head coach Kyle Shanahan has not made an official announcement, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Mullens went 16-for-22 for 262 yards and three touchdowns in his debut versus the Oakland Raiders in Week 9, leading the 49ers to their first victory since Week 2. Currently, he has some fantasy appeal as an inexpensive DFS option or a potential bye-week replacement. San Francisco's next game isn't until Monday, Nov. 12, against the New York Giants.

  • Raheem Mostert - RB
    Posted 11/2/18 6:05pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (forearm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 2

    Huddle Up: With Mostert out of action, Matt Breida and Alfred Morris will shoulder the load for the running game. Breida's versatility gives him the higher ceiling, and he should be a useful RB3 going forward.

  • C.J. Beathard - QB
    Posted 11/1/18 8:18am ET

    Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard (wrist) is 50-50 to play in the game Thursday, Nov. 1, with a wrist injury that has caused him issues gripping the football. QB Nick Mullens would start if Beathard can't go.

    Huddle Up: Neither options are playable in fantasy at this juncture.

  • C.J. Beathard - QB
    Posted 11/1/18 9:56am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard (wrist) will be a game-time decision Thursday, Nov. 1, to see if he can play in Week 9 with a wrist injury. If not, Nick Mullens will start against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: If you're leaning toward Beathard as bye-week fill-in or two-quarterback league starter, you will need to check the inactives list released an hour and a half before kickoff.

  • Raheem Mostert - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 11:10am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 1, against the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mostert being active essentially renders Kendrick Bourne inferior. Look for Matt Breida and Mostert to see most of the playing time out of the backfield and continue to stay away from the unreliable Alfred Morris.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 10:56am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is listed as questionable but is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 1, against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Breida gets a juicy matchup against the Raiders, but will be tough to fully trust given his in-and-out run of injuries this season and his lack of production (57 scoreless yards, no catches on 21 touches) the past two games. Breida owners might have little choice, though, with six teams on bye this week so fire him up as a Week 9 flex play.

  • C.J. Beathard - QB
    Posted 11/1/18 2:24pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens will start against the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Nov. 1, according to a source. QB C.J. Beathard (wrist) will be active and back up Mullens.

    Huddle Up: Mullens has a good matchup, but he's not a recommended fantasy starter in his first career start and in a primetime game.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 11/1/18 6:19pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (undisclosed) was able to return to the Week 9 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Whatever forced Kittle to the locker room early in the game doesn't appear to be too serious. Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 11/1/18 6:14pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (undisclosed) had to go to the locker room with an injury late in the first quarter of the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Nov. 1, against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: It's not known yet if Kittle will be able to return to the contest. In the meantime, Ross Dwelley will take over duties at tight end, but is not worthy of being scooped up in any leagues.

  • Raheem Mostert - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 7:36pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (arm) exited the Week 9 game against the Oakland Raiders and had his right forearm put in a brace. Mostert had seven carries for 86 yards and a touchdown before exiting.

    Huddle Up: Mostert had some flex appeal with Matt Breida playing through an ankle injury, but it looks like Mostert may have a suffered a serious injury himself.

  • Nick Mullens - QB
    Posted 11/1/18 8:33pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens completed 16 of his 22 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 9, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he would consider leaving Mullens the starter going forward.

    Huddle Up: Mullens was forced into action after C.J. Beathard was injured, and despite facing a bad Oakland defense, nobody was expecting this type of performance. If he does earn another start, he will at least have some appeal as a DFS play.

  • Matt Breida - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 8:37pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) rushed 12 times for 41 yards and caught one pass for three yards in a 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Breida played through an ankle injury for the second straight game, but he was also bottled up fro the second straight game. Raheem Mostert exited with an arm injury, leaving little competition for Breida moving forward. He's a flex option with RB2 upside.

  • Alfred Morris - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 9:14pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris carried the ball seven times for 13 yards against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Morris has done little since a 61-yard performances against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 7, but he's likely to slide right back into the undisputed No. 2 spot following the gruesome arm injury suffered by Raheem Mostert. With Matt Breida banged up quite a bit this season -- he hasn't had more than 16 carries in a game -- Morris isn't a bad player to pick up and stash on the bench.

  • Raheem Mostert - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 9:27pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (forearm) fractured his right forearm during the team's Week 9 win over the Oakland Raiders and will likely miss the remainder of the season.

    Huddle Up: This is no surprise given how awful the injury looked on TV. Moving forward, look for Matt Breida and Alfred Morris to see more touches with Breida looking like a viable RB3 and Morris as a possible stash option in case Breida continues to struggle with his health. As for Mostert, he can dropped in all single-year leagues.

  • George Kittle - TE
    Posted 11/1/18 9:45pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught four passes for 108 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 9 win over the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't seem to matter who's under center with Kittle, who has posted good numbers with Jimmy Garoppolo, C.J. Beathard and now Nick Mullens. He's earned weekly start status as a TE1 in the weeks ahead.

  • Marquise Goodwin - WR
    Posted 11/1/18 10:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin caught one pass for 11 yards against the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: That's two weeks in a row with just one catch for Goodwin, who has had just one legitimately big game this year. He's the team's top deep threat, though, which gives him boom or bust potential each and every week. He'll look to rebound against the New York Giants in Week 10.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR
    Posted 11/1/18 9:48pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon had three receptions, 56 yards and a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: The 32-year-old has gotten steady run this year, but it hasn't translated into much production. While he looked good against a disinterested Raiders defense on Thursday night, Garcon still isn't worth carrying in most leagues.
