Sammy Watkins (WR - KC)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Sammy Watkins (WR - KC)
Watkins is going to be third in the pecking order behind Hill and Kelce against the best pass defense in the NFL. He does not have much upside in a very tough matchup.
Emmanuel Sanders (WR - SF)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Emmanuel Sanders (WR - SF)
Sanders has not had much of a role on a 49ers offense that has taken the air out of the football in the postseason. He has good ability, but not much upside.
Deebo Samuel (WR - SF)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Deebo Samuel (WR - SF)
Samuel has emerged as the 49ers go to wide receiver in the playoffs, but the offense is very run-oriented which does limit his upside.
Tyreek Hill (WR - KC)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Tyreek Hill (WR - KC)
The Chiefs are the best pass defense in the NFL, but Hill has so much speed, he can be a matchup problem for any NFL defense.
Travis Kelce (TE - KC)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Travis Kelce (TE - KC)
The 49ers are 5th against fantasy tight ends, but Kelce is matchup proof and he should be a viable fantasy tight end in the Super Bowl.
George Kittle (TE - SF)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on George Kittle (TE - SF)
The Chiefs are 22nd against fantasy tight end, which gives Kittle a slight edge over TE Travis Kelce as the best fantasy tight end in this game.
Damien Williams (RB - KC)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Damien Williams (RB - KC)
Williams has not been flashy this postseason, but he has posted 29 rushing attempts for 93 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also has 7 receptions for 65 yards and 1 touchdown. He has a tough matchup, but the touchdown potential gives him some upside.
Tevin Coleman (RB - SF)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Tevin Coleman (RB - SF)
The 49ers are going to try to run the ball at the Chiefs the entire game, which gives them the possibility of having two viable fantasy backs. The downside is that Coleman is battling a shoulder injury and may not be active.
Raheem Mostert (RB - SF)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Raheem Mostert (RB - SF)
Mostert had a record setting day against the Packers D and the Chiefs have a poor run defense. Mostert has great fantasy value in the Super Bowl as he looks to build on the 220 yards and four rushing touchdowns he had in the NFC Championship Game.
Jimmy Garoppolo (QB - SF)
Fri, Jan 24
Player Note on Jimmy Garoppolo (QB - SF)
The risk with Jimmy G is that the 49ers could take the air out of the football, but he is more than capable of making some big plays in the Super Bowl.

Carson Palmer (QB - FA) - Carson Palmer retires
Fri, Jan 5
News Reaction on Carson Palmer (QB - FA) - Carson Palmer retires
Palmer only played 7 games this year and he had only 1,978 yards passing, 9 passing touchdowns, 7 picks and a QB rating of 84.4. He was averaging only 19.5 fantasy points per game. The Cardinals were going to need to find their quarterback of the future in the 2018 NFL Draft, regardless of whether Palmer retired. Hopefully they will make a great choice, because the Cardinals have a lot of good skill position players that would benefit from better QB play than they experienced in 2017.
Aaron Rodgers (QB - GB) - Aaron Rodgers taking snaps at practice
Thu, Nov 16
I think a lot depends on how the Packers do in the next few weeks. If they are eliminated from playoff contention by the time Rodgers is eligible to return, it makes no sense for the Packers to bring him back and risk an injury in a lost season. If they are still alive, they will bring him back in an attempt to save their season. Rodgers is worth a bench stash in all leagues. He is an elite QB1 when healthy and could help a team in the fantasy playoffs.
Tyrod Taylor (QB - LAC) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11
Thu, Nov 16
News Reaction on Tyrod Taylor (QB - LAC) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11
Taylor was efficient with a 64.2 completion percentage and 91.4 QB rating. The problem is the fantasy production was nonexistent with 10 touchdowns passes in 9 games and only 187.1 pass yards per game. Peterman had experience playing in a pro style offense in college. We don't know if he will be ready to play at the NFL level, so take a wait and see approach with all players not named RB LeSean McCoy. They could improve or regress, it just depends if Peterman is up to the task this year.
