NFC West

Fantasy Impact: This confirms an earlier report that Kittle will suit up for Sunday's game, though it's unclear what his volume will be. It'll be worthwhile to monitor his reps as the game progresses.

Fantasy Impact: Goodwin may even take on some extra targets, as tight end George Kittle (groin) is listed as questionable after being added to the injury report Friday. Goodwin, Dante Pettis and Deebo Samuel will lead the 49ers wire receiver corps in Sunday's Week 6 contest against the Rams.

Kyle Juszczyk suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. The fullback, however, is optimistic about an earlier timetable ahead of the four weeks and will seek a second opinion on the severity of his injury. (Source: Rob Lowder on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Juszczyk holds little fantasy value directly, but his absence is likely to be felt to some degree by the running corps as the Pro Bowl fullback provides a strong blocking presence. Matt Breida's opening touchdown on Monday night was made possible by a key block Juszczyk set. As a capable receiver out of the backfield, he also adds an additional dimension that defenses need to account for so the offense as a whole will miss his presence.

With the return of Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert saw just seven carries on Monday night for 34 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Barring injuries, Raheem Mostert has now lost most of his fantasy value as it's too difficult to predict his output in any given week with the bevy of options Kyle Shanahan has at his disposal.

The San Francisco 49ers D/ST recorded two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and four sacks in the team's 31-3 beat-down of the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: The 49ers' defensive line had a huge advantage over the Browns' offensive line in this one, and it showed. San Francisco will visit the Rams in Week 6 before drawing the Redskins in Week 7.

Robbie Gould converted just 1-of-4 field goals in the 49ers' 31-3 Week 5 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: He made all four of his PATs. It's a disappointing performance but Gould has too long of a track record to doubt moving forward. He remains a usable fantasy asset in Week 6 against the Rams.

Deebo Samuel caught 1-of-3 targets for three yards as the 49ers beat the Browns in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: It was the first time this year that Samuel didn't catch at least three passes in a game. He's well off the re-draft radar and is merely a dynasty stash in fantasy.

Dante Pettis caught 1-of-3 targets for 11 yards as the 49ers beat the Browns on Monday Night Football in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: One of Pettis' targets might've been a walk-in touchdown had he caught it. The 23-year-old receiver had a lot of off-season hype but is far removed from the re-draft radar in fantasy.

Tevin Coleman rushed 16 times for 97 yards and a score in the 49ers' Week 5 win over the Browns on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Matt Breida got the start but Coleman out-carried him 16-11. This looks like a two-man backfield moving forward as Raheem Mostert didn't play much and Jeff Wilson was inactive. Consider Coleman a low-end RB2 for Week 6 against the Rams.

Matt Breida rushed 11 times for 114 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 5 win over the Browns, adding three receptions for another 15 yards and a score.

Fantasy Impact: It's the second time in four games that Breida has eclipsed 100 rushing yards. The 24-year-old was untouched on an 83-yard TD scamper in the first quarter before adding a receiving touchdown a bit later. Breida should continue splitting carries with Tevin Coleman in Week 6 against the Rams.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 20-of-29 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the 49ers' Week 5 victory over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Garoppolo wasn't needed much as San Francisco's run game stole the show. His two TDs went to Matt Breida and George Kittle. The 4-0 49ers will now pay a visit to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. Consider Jimmy G a QB2 for that matchup.

DeForest Buckner racked up four total tackles (two solo), a sack, and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Buckner continues to show his DL1 abilities adding his third sack through five weeks. He should be started in deeper IDP leagues on a regular basis.

Nick Bosa ended Monday’s 31-3 win over the Browns with four solo tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact: If Bosa is available on waivers, it might be the time to buy in and add the 49ers rookie. He is currently tied with DeForest Buckner for the most sacks (3) on the team.

Richard Sherman ended Monday’s 31-3 win over the Browns with four solo tackles and his second interception of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Sherman is currently fifth on the team in tackles with 15 through Week 5. He can be left on waivers in most leagues.

Jeff Wilson inactive Monday

Fantasy Impact: Jeff Wilson is the odd man out with Tevin Coleman returning from injury, and he is likely to remain inactive barring another injury to the San Francisco backfield.

49ers wide receiver Jordan Matthews is inactive for the team's Week 5 matchup against the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Matthews only re-signed with the 49ers earlier this week after the team placed fellow wideout Jalen Hurd on injured reserve, so his inactive status should be not surprising. He is probably at least one more injury away from being relevant in most fantasy formats.

After sustaining a foot injury on Sunday, an MRI revealed a foot sprain that will keep the third-year corner from action for at least a month. Emmanuel Moseley is currently in the lead to replace Witherspoon, not Jason Verrett who struggled on Sunday in his return from an Achilles tear. (Source: Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Witherspoon started his 2019 campaign on a mission to bounce back from a mediocre sophomore year. He's played a key role in the 49ers secondary and while his loss isn't crushing to the 49ers D/ST value, it does hurt slightly. The team gets an early Week 4 bye so they may only lose Witherspoon for 3-4 games. With a stout defensive line and linebacking corps, the team should continue to cause issues for opposing QBs and RBs.

Jalen Hurd (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, with the 49ers hoping to get him back for Week 5. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A Week 4 bye gives the rookie wide receiver a decent chance to end his streak of absences at three games.It is unclear if Hurd will be a significant part of the offense once he returns.

Trent Taylor (foot) is having some issues with the soft tissue around his Jones fracture, but the 49ers expect him to return from injured reserve after eight weeks. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Taylor will look to come back in the mix at some point in November. Marquise Goodwin , Deebo Samuel , Richie James and Dante Pettis will head the 49ers passing catching options for the foreseeable future.

Fred Warner finished Sunday’s win over Cincinnati with seven total tackles (four solo).

Fantasy Impact: Warner is currently first on the team in tackles with 16 through two games. IDP owners should keep starting Warner on a weekly basis.
