Fantasy Impact: Pearsall is now on the NFI list, which comes as a surprise given that we haven't heard anything about him being injured prior to this transaction. It's unclear when he is expected to make his return to training camp, but we should receive more information about his recovery timeline over the next few days. If his injury is anything more than a day-to-day issue, that could make San Francisco less likely to deal Brandon Aiyuk, who officially requested a trade from the team on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: This report comes shortly after it was announced that Aiyuk requested a trade from San Francisco. The two sides have seemingly been unable to come close to an agreement on an extension this offseason. It is worth noting that the 49ers have agreed to contracts for other big stars entering the last year of their deals very late in the past, most recently Nick Bosa in September last season and Deebo Samuel at the end of July in 2022. This will remain a situation to monitor with the 49ers opening up training camp next week.

Fantasy Impact: Hufanga remains without a timetable to be back at practice as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL. It is unclear if he'll be on the field during training camp.

Fantasy Impact: Ward is entering the final year of the three-year deal he signed with the 49ers heading into the 2022 season. Ward had core muscle surgery after the season, but he is expected to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Impact: McCaffrey has once again reset the running back market. The superstar is heading into his age 28 season after finishing as the overall RB1 in all fantasy formats in 2023. McCaffrey shows no signs of slowing down, and if he remains healthy, he will almost certainly finish as a high-end RB1 in 2024.

Fantasy Impact: Kittle confirmed he is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. He said he started dealing with core-muscle issues around Week 9-10 last season and played through it the rest of the year.

Jauan Jennings has signed a two-year contract extension with the 49ers worth up to $15.4 million with $10.5 guaranteed. (Source: Adam Schefter on X)

Fantasy Impact: After holding out at OTAs last week, Jennings and the 49ers were able to come to an agreement for an extension. Jennings has been a solid role player for the Niners but hasn't stood out on a team that also boasts Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and George Kittle. Unless one of their star wide receivers moves elsewhere, Jennings won't be a viable fantasy asset in most leagues.

Fantasy Impact: After four years at Truman, Schrader walked on with Missouri. In 2023, he ran for 1,627 yards (SEC-best) and had 14 rushing touchdowns. He enters a now-deep RB room and can fight for a spot on the team's practice squad.

Deebo Samuel is unlikely to be traded to the Bills or Patriots on Day 2 of NFL Draft. The 49ers are still receiving interest for Samuel at this time and are open to trading him. (Source: Jordan Schultz on X)

Fantasy Impact: After not drafting a wide receiver in Round 1 of the NFL Draft, the Bills and Patriots were two teams that were linked to acquiring Deebo via the trade market. Since it is unlikely this will happen for either team, expect both the Bills and the Pats to either draft a wide receiver and/or trade for one.

Former Washington and San Francisco pass rusher Chase Young is expected to meet with the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans this week. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Young, a former Defensive Rookie of the Year, is still just 24 years old and drawing interest from a "handful of teams," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Many are still buying into his early career flashes and his draft hype despite an injury-riddled start to his career that saw his production dip. However, Young had his second-best PFF pass-rushing grade in 2023 (74.5) and could provide for an edge-needy team.

Fantasy Impact: Ferrell spent the 2023 season with the 49ers and tallied 28 total tackles and 3.5 sacks in 17 games. The former first-round pick will add solid depth to the Commanders’ defensive line.
