Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Raheem Mostert Note

Mostert won't be activated from IR until at least Week 12 with the 49ers on bye in Week 11. By then, their playoff hopes will likely be dashed and it's unclear whether Mostert will see the workhorse role that he closed 2019 with. Either way, managers should continue to hold Mostert, and will likely be able to use him to close out the season, albeit likely not at the capacity they had hoped.

Deebo Samuel Note

Samuel returned in Week 4, and although his snaps were limited, he was able to get involved even with Nick Mullens under center for most of the night. Brandon Aiyuk continues to develop and will cut into Samuel's targets, but so long as he's healthy, Samuel can be started in a pinch and should be rostered everywhere.

Jerick McKinnon Note

McKinnon has looked very good in his limited touches, and he should get the chance at a more featured role with both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman set to miss time. McKinnon is not going to be a workhorse back - not given his size and how much time he has missed because of injuries. But he's a must-add in nearly all formats, and should be in line for a 15-touch role at least until Mostert returns.

Tevin Coleman Note

Coleman is expected to miss multiple weeks with a knee injury he suffered in Week 2 against the Jets. With a full backfield, even with Raheem Mostert's injury, and a lengthy absence ahead of him, there's little reason to roster Coleman at this point.

Jeff Wilson Jr. Note

Wilson needed a lot of injuries ahead of him to have fantasy-relevance, and he has just that. With both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman set to miss time, Wilson should factor in with Jerick McKinnon and see most of the goal-line touches. His exact role is uncertain but he is worth an add in most formats.

George Kittle Note

Kittle banged up his knee in Week 1 and will miss at least two games. The good news is that the injury doesn't sound serious, and Kittle has suggested he could play through the injury if necessary. For the short term, those managers rostering Kittle need a replacement, but think about upcoming matchups for the next week or two only, rather than a season-long outlook.
