WR - SF - IR
Week 4 Outlook
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, second-year WR Danny Gray will miss at least the first four games of the season on the San Francisco 49ers' injured reserve list.
Gray is dealing with a shoulder injury that left his availability for the start of the season uncertain. As a rookie, Gray didn't see a lot of action, appearing in 13 games with a total of 106 snaps. When he returns to the field, he won't likely provide much more than WR depth with the ability to make an occasional splash play with his 4.33 speed.
Danny Gray has a right SC joint sprain in his shoulder that is expected to sideline him for the start of the regular season.
There is no fracture in his collarbone but it is unclear how long he'll be out. Nonetheless, he is expected to miss at least the next few weeks by not being ready for the start of the season.
49ers wide receiver Danny Gray (hip, back) returned to practice on Wednesday, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Gray had been sidelined since getting banged up during San Francisco's preseason opener against Green Bay.
Gray looked great in practice, making big plays. His best rep came when he sped past veteran cornerback Patrick Peterson and hauled in a nicely placed ball from Trey Lance. He has a good shot to make the 49ers' roster but likely won't have any fantasy relevance unless the starters suffer injuries.
49ers rookie WR Danny Gray hauled in 2-of-4 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's preseason win over Green Bay.
Gray went for a game-high 99 yards in his preseason debut. The highlight of the game occurred with a few minutes left in the first frame, where he hauled in a 76-yard bomb from Trey Lance and impressively stayed inbounds during his run to the end zone. Gray will look to keep the momentum going for the next two preseason games to potentially earn some playing time this season. Fantasy managers should consider him a deep sleeper target in drafts, though it will be difficult to carve out a decent role in this offense behind at least Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and George Kittle.
The San Francisco 49ers selected WR Danny Gray with the No. 105 pick overall in the 2022 NFL Draft.
The 2021 first-team All-American Athletic Conference wideout caught 49 passes for 803 yards and nine touchdowns. He has elusive route-running and speed skills and has a NextGen Stats score of 71. Gray lands on a team with questions surrounding their offense, particularly at the QB position, and superstar Deebo Samuel is reportedly requesting a trade. He doesn't have immediate fantasy appeal because of these question marks.
