San Francisco 49ers

NFC West

Garrett Celek caught four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Celek stepped into a larger role with all of the injuries to the TE position. He really showed up and was a no-brainer start this week.

C.J. Beathard threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns, he also added 15 rush yards and a score in the 49ers first win of the season.

Fantasy Impact: C.J. really stepped up in a nice matchup against the lowly Giants. This will probably be his best game of the season.

Louis Murphy had two receptions for 48 yards in the 49ers' 31-21 win over the Giants Sunday. He was targeted twice.

Fantasy Impact: Murphy lacks the involvement in the offense needed from a fantasy weapon.

Robbie Gould connected on 4-of-4 extra points and a 43-yard field goal in the 49ers' 31-21 win over the New York Giants Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Gould did not miss a kick Sunday. He will continue to be limited by his offense barring Jimmy Garoppolo having a major impact when he becomes the starter.

Aldrick Robinson brought in his only target for 12 yards in the 49ers' 31-21 win over the New York Giants Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson is not a viable fantasy starter this season.

Marquise Goodwin brought in his lone target for an 83-yard touchdown in the 49ers' 31-21 win over the New York Giants Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Goodwin made his only chance in the passing game count with the long score. Goodwin lacks consistency and volume, but has the speed to make his fantasy day with one play as he did this week.

Ronald Blair recorded two sacks on four tackles in the 49ers' win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Blair recorded his first and second sacks of the season in his second game of the season. Blair will look to build on his performance following the 49ers' bye week.

Eric Reid recovered a fumble along with eight total tackles in the 49ers' win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Reid followed up his first interception of the season with an even better performance against the Giants. Reid bested his previous season high in tackles of seven from Week 2 and recovered his first fumble of the season. Reid will head into the 49ers' bye week with a great taste in his mouth.

Reuben Foster recorded 10 total tackles, including six solo tackles in the 49ers' win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Foster, who has missed a lot of his rookie season, has recorded double-digit tackles in back-to-back games. Those games are also the only two games Foster has finished. Foster is worth a high waiver claim following the 49ers' bye week.

Matt Breida received nine carries for 55 yards and a touchdown and caught one of two targets for an additional three yards in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Breida scored a late touchdown to put the icing on the 49ers first victory of the season. Breida has done enough to still receive playing time but not to overtake Carlos Hyde. This will be a committee going forward, with Breida on the outside looking in barring injury and will need touchdowns to be anything more than a weekly low end RB3 with upside.

Carlos Hyde carried the ball 17 times for 98 yards and caught two of his three targets for an additional six yards in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Hyde's usage has been up and down all season but he was the feature back in Week 10. Matt Breida did however score a touchdown, but was out touched and out produced by Hyde. This is still a committee but Hyde is the most talented and should get the most touches barring injury. This committee however, will limit Hydes value to a mid-range RB2.

The San Francisco 49ers came up with three sacks and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't pretty at times, but the 49ers made enough plays to hold the Giants to 21 points by holding the Giants on a few early deep drives to just six points. This may have been the only game the 49ers will be favorites in all season, making them a desperation streaming option at best.

Joe Staley appears to be ahead of schedule after suffering a fractured orbital against the Eagles in Week 8 and is now expected to play on Sunday against the New York Giants. (Source: Joe Fann on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Staley has been one of the few bright spots for the 49ers in recent years and should provide a welcome boost to their offensive line. C.J. Beathard should have a bit more time to throw and while the 49ers offense isn't going to create waves, this does knock the Giants defense down a peg.

San Francisco 49ers beat writer Matt Barrows is reporting wide receiver Trent Taylor (ribs) is dealing with a ribs injury. (Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After exiting last week's loss to Arizona with broken ribs, Taylor will be sidelined for the unforeseen future. However, per reports, the team is hoping he will return before the end of the year. Aldrick Robinson and Marquise Goodwin are the top targets in San Francisco now that Taylor, Pierre Garcon and George Kittle are out.

George Kittle has an ankle injury and will miss the game against the New York Giants. (Source: Eric Branch on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Kittle out with an injury, Garrett Celek should get some more targets in a juicy matchup.

Kyle Juszczyk rushed once for five yards and lost a fumble in the 49ers' 20-10 loss to the Cardinals Sunday. He added once catch for five yards on two targets.

Fantasy Impact: Juszczyk lacks volume and is not worth rostering this season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) is out for the season with a neck injury. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Garcon, who injured his neck in last week's loss to the Eagles, was placed on the injured reserve list Thursday as a result. In his absence, Marquise Goodwin and Trent Taylor are expected to see an uptick in targets as well TE George Kittle, who is emerging as one of the team's most reliable pass-catchers. Taylor should be viewed as an upside ROS stash in deeper PPR leagues.

Brian Hoyer is being released by the 49ers per a source. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With the 49ers trading for Jimmy G from the Patriots, there was no need for Hoyer. Brian is a decent QB, so he may get picked up to be someone's backup.

Cole Hikutini caught one pass for five yards in the loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: In what was supposed to be a great spot for Kittle, ended up being a try out for other TEs on the 49ers roster. Hopefully Shanahan can learn from his mistakes and just play Kittle more.

Navorro Bowman has been released Friday per his request. (Source: 49ers.com)

Fantasy Impact: Bowman had his snaps reduced during Week 5 by a coaches decision and he expressed his frustration in a post game interview. Earlier Friday rumors began to swirl that the 49ers had been shopping him, and now he has been released. With the 49ers in the middle of a rebuild, drafting Reuben Foster and the emergence of Ray-Ray Armstrong has allowed the aging and injury prone Bowman to become expendable. He is still capable of producing LB1 numbers but he just hasn't showed consistent production so far this year.
