San Francisco 49ers

NFC West

Nick Bosa missed practice on Wednesday. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It was reported on Tuesday that Bosa was dealing with some hamstring irritation, so his absence on Wednesday in practice should not be a surprise. He still has a chance to play on Sunday with a return to practice on Thursday or Friday. That will be worth monitoring.

Deebo Samuel was limited in practice on Wednesday. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Samuel was a game-time decision this past Sunday. He has played through this quad injury for a couple of weeks now and there is no reason to believe he won't be on the field again this weekend against the Buccaneers.

Christian McCaffrey was limited in practice on Wednesday. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is likely going to be a weekly thing for McCaffrey at this point being limited in practice. It should not impact his availability on Sunday against the Buccaneers after playing over 80 percent of the snaps last Sunday against the Dolphins.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, QB Jimmy Garoppolo does not need to undergo foot surgery, dodging a Lisfranc injury. With a best-case rehab process, Garoppolo could return in 7-8 weeks for a late playoff run. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Garoppolo managed to avoid a 100% season-ending injury, though he may not play again depending on how his rehab or the 49ers' regular or postseason go. Regardless, for fantasy purposes, his season is over. QB Brock Purdy seems to be the starter going forward, though they also signed QB Josh Johnson. Neither should likely be starting QBs in fantasy going forward.

Jauan Jennings tallied two receptions and 34 yards on his four targets in a 33-17 win over Miami Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings was the least targets wide receiver Sunday, behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk. The 25-year-old currently only provides fantasy value if either Samuel or Aiyuk are out of the lineup. The 49ers will take on Tampa Bay in Week 14.

The San Francisco 49ers D/ST recorded three sacks, three interceptions, and a fumble return for a touchdown in the team's 33-17 Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: The 49ers D/ST brought down and picked off Tua Tagovailoa three times each, and returned his fumble for a touchdown. This was one of their best defensive performances of the season, as their four takeaways established a new season-high. The 49ers D/ST will be a locked-in top five play for fantasy purposes versus Tampa Bay in Week 14.

Robbie Gould made 4-of-4 field goals and hit three extra points in the 49ers' win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Gould registered his most productive game of the season, knocking through three 40+ yard field goals and not missing a single kick. He could be in for a less active day against a strong Buccaneers defense for Week 14, but remains a top-10 kicking option for fantasy purposes.

George Kittle hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards in San Francisco's Week 13 win versus Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Kittle was held to under 30 yards for the second consecutive week and the third time in four weeks. There is certainly potential for his volume to increase with rookie Brock Purdy now under center for the 49ers, as Kittle can serve as a security blanket going forward. He'll remain a volatile TE1 against the Buccaneers for Week 14.

Jordan Mason rushed eight times for 51 yards in San Francisco's Week 13 victory over Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Mason earned a season-high eight carries with Elijah Mitchell sidelined this game and for the next few weeks. He was efficient running the ball, as he averaged 6.4 yards per carry. However, he saw zero involvement in the passing game, as he was held without a target. Mason will require more usage to be considered utilizing for fantasy purposes, though is a solid bench stash in the event that Christian McCaffrey misses any time.

Category: Game Recaps

Brandon Aiyuk hauled in 5-of-9 targets for 46 yards in San Francisco's Week 13 win over Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Aiyuk finished third on the team in receiving yards, though saw a healthy nine targets after averaging just 6.3 targets across the previous four weeks. He'll look to establish solid chemistry with rookie Brock Purdy, who will replace Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the season. Aiyuk should remain on the WR3 radar against Tampa Bay for Week 14.

Brock Purdy completed 25 of his 37 pass attempts for 210 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in San Francisco's Week 13 win against Miami. He added four carries for negative one yard.

Fantasy Impact: Purdy entered the game on the second drive to fill in for Jimmy Garoppolo, who was carted off the field with a foot injury. Garoppolo was later ruled out for the rest of the season after a broken foot was confirmed. As a result, Purdy, the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, will take over the starting job for the 49ers. He looked quite serviceable against the below-average Dolphins defense, as he threw for over 200 yards and notched two scores. He did throw an interception on a fourth down play midway through the second quarter, but otherwise looked fairly comfortable most of the afternoon. Purdy will have a more difficult task against the Buccaneers in Week 14, but has plenty of support on both sides of the ball to produce a clean game. Fantasy managers in Superflex leagues who are QB-needy can consider adding him to rosters.

The 49ers have placed RB Elijah Mitchell on injured reserve. (Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This comes as no surprise as Mitchell is expected to miss six to eight weeks with an MCL injury. Christian McCaffrey will remain the clear lead back in the 49ers backfield. It is not clear who will take over the No. 2 role between Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price.

Trent Williams is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams was forced to leave practice early on Friday due to his back injury. He still has a chance to play not being ruled out, but it seems rather unlikely. We have seen Williams play through injuries before though.

San Francisco 49ers edge rusher Samson Ebukam is inactive for Monday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals. (Source: San Francisco 49ers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ebukam has been dealing with quad and Achilles injuries that have now cost him two games. The 49ers will lean on Charles Omenihu, Drake Jackson, and Jordan Willis beside Nick Bosa with Ebukam sidelined. Omenihu offers low-end DL3 upside, with Jackson and Willis being options only in deeper 16+ team leagues.

Category: Injury Updates

Tyrion Davis-Price is officially inactive for San Francisco’s Week 10 matchup against the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Davis-Price is inactive again for San Francisco and has only seen action in two games this season. Davis-Price being inactive doesn’t change how Christian McCaffrey-heavy the running game will be in Week 10. Davis-Price is a couple of injuries away from fantasy relevance right now.

San Francisco cornerback Jason Verrett tore his Achilles tendon at practice on Wednesday and will miss the rest of the season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Verrett looked close to returning to action after starting the season on the PUP list. Verrett tore his ACL in September 2021, so this is devastating news for the veteran DB, who has worked hard to return to the field. Though they surely were looking forward to his return, this shouldn't affect the Niners D/ST, as they haven't had him in the fold for over a year.

The San Francisco 49ers are trading RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to the Miami Dolphins for a fifth-round pick. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After having just dealt Chase Edmonds to Denver in the Bradley Chubb deal, the Dolphins are presumably bringing Wilson to be Raheem Mostert's backup. Wilson took over starting RB duties in San Francisco following Elijah Mitchell's injury but became expendable with the acquisition of Christian McCaffrey. From a fantasy perspective, those rostering Wilson should hold until we see how he will be used in Miami. The 49ers have their bye in Week 9, and Mitchell could return as early as Week 10 against the Chargers. If he's healthy, he likely leapfrogs Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price as the handcuff to McCaffrey.

Willie Snead IV released by 49ers

By Leo Sells

Willie Snead IV was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Monday. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Snead has been cut by San Francisco just one day after playing in their win over the Los Angeles Rams. He failed to log a catch in that game, and he didn't give the team much of a reason to keep him around. He could end up back on San Francisco's practice squad or on another team in the near future.

Ross Dwelley caught his lone target for 56 yards in the 49ers' Week 8 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Dwelley's 56 yards accounted for a new season-high. He recorded his third reception of the season, and generally continues to split snaps with fellow backup TE Tyler Kroft. Both tight ends are off the fantasy radar as long as George Kittle is on the field.

Kyle Juszczyk has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Rams. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Juszczyk recently had surgery to repair a broken finger and was unlikely to play this week. With the 49ers bye coming in Week 9, this will give Juszczyk a couple of weeks to recover. His absence will likely impact the running game against Aaron Donald and the Rams' defense.
