Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
McKinnon should be involved in this offense, but Kyle Shanahan has simply ignored him the past couple of weeks. This makes McKinnon a risky RB3 play. He could receive all of the touches in this one or he could see four total touches. We simply just have no way of knowing what Shanahan is going to do. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It seems like the 49ers will be without Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and Tevin Coleman this week, leaving behind a lot of touches. The timeshare has been difficult to predict on a weekly basis, but the 49ers running backs have averaged 30.0 touches per game this year. No matter which way you slice it between these two backs, they're both getting touches. That's one issue; the other is the Seahawks run defense. Of the production they've allowed to skill-position players, just 24.6 percent has gone to the running back position, which is the lowest number in the league (yes, even lower than the Steelers). That's despite facing a respectable 27.0 touches per game to running backs. They've allowed just 3.92 yards per carry, which is low enough as it is, but another issue is that teams have run the ball just 35.5 percent of the time against them, which is the second-lowest mark in football. Because of that, they've allowed the 10th-fewest points on the ground. The 4.91 yards per target isn't great, either, but the 9.5 targets per game to running backs has carried some performances. There have been eight running backs who've totaled at least three receptions, including three who caught five-plus passes. It's difficult to say with any certainty that McKinnon will be the primary back, but he should be the clear-cut receiving option, which is what matters quite a bit in this matchup. He shouldn't be trusted as anything more than a high-end RB3, but there's opportunity available. Hasty has run just eight routes over the last two weeks, which worries me a bit, but he's looked very good on the ground. He's someone I'd expect to total a dozen touches, so he can be considered as a low-end RB3.You'd think that with the way Herbert's been playing, that Henry's value would be through the roof. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case. He's now totaled less than 40 yards in three straight games, including terrific matchups against the Jaguars and Saints. The targets are there, as he's seen at least seven targets in 5-of-6 games, so that's not it. Things should even out over time, but he's been extremely inefficient with his targets to this point. Will a matchup with the Broncos change that? They have allowed a 76.2 percent catch-rate to tight ends, which is among the highest in the league, but those receptions have gone for an average of just 9.72 yards, which is the sixth-lowest mark in football. Despite playing against some very good tight ends (Jonnu Smith, Rob Gronkowski, Eric Ebron, and Travis Kelce), there hasn't been a single tight end who's topped 49 yards against them. Just two of those tight ends topped five targets, which is a number that Henry sees regularly, so we can't automatically say he won't produce. His targets will keep him in the TE1 conversation no matter what, but he's more of a mid-to-low TE1 this week in what's a tough matchup.

McKinnon should see more than 3 carries splitting time with JaMycal Hasty, but he is a boom / bust RB3 depending on usage.The Broncos are 14th against fantasy tight ends, but Henry has averaged only 5.3 fantasy points the last two games. Henry is a boom / bust TE1.
