TE - SF
Week 11 Outlook
Ross Dwelley caught 1-of-2 targets for 22 yards during the 49ers' 13-27 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
With Jordan Reed rounding back to full health, Dwelley saw a decreased role in the passing game in this one. Reed out targeted him 6-2 and looked like the better player at times. More importantly, it appears that Nick Mullens favors Reed a bit more on the field. Dwelley can be safely dropped now the Reed is healthy and with the impending return of Deebo Samuel following the 49ers' Week 11 bye.
Ross Dwelley caught all three of his targets for 52 yards during the 49ers' 17-34 loss to the Packers on Thursday Night Fooball.
Dwelley was expected to be the TE1 heading into Thursday with George Kittle (foot) landing on injured reserve, though Jordan Reed's move to active status forced some to pivot away. Dwelley went on to out-snap Reed 46-13 and appears to have a solid grip on the TE1 role in San Fransisco for as long as Kittle remains out. The 49ers' offense is likely to be inconsistent at times with Nick Mullens under center but Dwelley should be on rosters heading into a Week 10 matchup against the Saints.
Ross Dwelley hauled in 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards and a touchdown during the 49ers' 27-37 loss to the Seahawks in Week 8.
Dwelley is normally a non-factor in the passing game but was forced into a larger role when George Kittle exited with a foot injury. His 16-yard touchdown came late in the fourth quarter and was his only reception of the game. If Kittle is forced to miss time, Dwelley would be the de facto TE1 in San Fransisco, though his fantasy value would only improve slightly. The 49ers' get the Packers in Week 9.
Ross Dwelley hauled in each of his four targets for 49 yards during the 49ers' Week 3 win over the Giants.
Dwelley saw more snaps than usual after Jordan Reed (ankle) exited the game and did not return. Nick Mullens seemed to look his way quite often and the two showed great chemistry. It's possible that Reed is forced to miss some time with his injury but it's also possible that George Kittle (knee) could in Week 4, keeping Dwelley in a backup role. He is not a recommended fantasy option due to the depth at tight end this year, though he would be on the streaming radar if Kittle and Reed were to sit in Week 4.
Ross Dwelley hauled in his lone target for five yards during the 49ers' 31-13 win over the Jets on Sunday.
Dwelley saw some action with George Kittle (knee) ruled out. He is not on the fantasy football radar.
