DE - SF
49ers' DE Arik Armstead (COVID-19) has been placed on the league's Reserve/COVID-19 list, per Adam Schefter.
The 49ers have been decimated by injuries in 2020 and Armstead's placement on the league's COVID-19 list makes the lack of defensive line depth even more glaring. With Ziggy Ansah, Dee Ford and Solomon Thomas all on IR, San Francisco finally gets their Bye during Week 11 and will use it to try and restore the health of their players for the remainder of the season.
The San Francisco 49ers and defensive lineman Arik Armstead agreed to a new five-year deal worth up to $85 million, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.
Armstead had a breakout year in San Francisco, recording 10 sacks while playing in all 16 games. He will now stick around with the 49ers and solidify their defensive line for years to come opposite Nick Bosa.
Arik Armstead finished Monday’s loss to the Seahawks with three total tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble.
Armstead is tied with Nick Bosa for most sacks on the 49ers defense. With 31 total tackles and seven sacks through Week 10, Armstead is worth playing in deeper leagues only.
Arik Armstead recorded five solo tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack in the San Francisco 49ers' destruction by the Los Angeles Rams.
Armstead was probably the only 49ers defender who actually played well. He's still not a fantasy option outside of the deepest IDP leagues.
DE Arik Armstead collected three solo tackles in the San Francisco 49ers' Week 5 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Armstead, like the rest of the 49ers defenders, wasn't on the field much as the 49ers' offense played 92 snaps. The 49ers turned the ball over five times, however, giving the Cardinals great field position, and Arizona capitalized in a game they could not otherwise move the ball on offense.
