Raheem Mostert Back On Tap

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is back on the flex radar in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida (ankle) will seek a second opinion on his reaggravated sprained ankle.

Chase McLaughlin Plays Hero, Then Goat

San Francisco 49ers kicker Chase McLaughlin knocked in three of four field goals and an extra point in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks.

49ers Defense Must Contain The Hustle And Bustle

The San Francisco 49ers Defense will face its most challenging test to-date in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Matt Breida Demonstrating Lunch-Pail Effort

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida has been the model of blue-collared consistency this season.

Tevin Coleman Draws Favorable Matchup

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman will retain his RB2 status in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. Coleman left fantasy managers on tilt after Week 9’s 36-yard flop, but draws a beatable Seattle front seven allowing 4.51 adjusted line yards per carry. The Niners already-elite rushing attack should also get bulldozing fullback Kyle... Read More

Jimmy Garoppolo Seeking An Encore Performance

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will attempt an encore of his four-touchdown spectacle last Thursday in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Deebo Samuel Starting To Separate Himself

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel continues emerging as the clear No. 2 wideout in the passing attack. Since the arrival of veteran receiver Emmanuel Sanders, Samuel’s snap share has remained stable, with the biggest loser being Dante Pettis. Samuel saw seven looks in Week 9, missing out on a big day by... Read More

Emmanuel Sanders Rising To The Top

Two games into his San Francisco 49ers career, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has established himself as a key cog in the passing attack. With 14 targets, 137 yards and two scores, his production has rivaled star tight end George Kittle (knee). Already the clear front-runner amongst receivers, he’ll make a fine WR3 in Week 10’s...

Kyle Juszczyk Expected Back In Week 10

San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk (knee) claims he’s fully healthy and ready to play in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners also expect to have tackles Joe Staley (fibula) and Mike McGlinchey (knee) for Monday night’s tilt. As a block-first back, Juszczyk’s return has no impact on his fantasy value but could...

49ers Defense Humbled On Halloween

The San Francisco 49ers Defense surrendered 25 points in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals but escaped with a narrow 28-25 victory.

Deebo Samuel Blows Easy Scoring Chance

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel cradled four of seven targets for 40 yards in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Dante Pettis Capitalizes On Only Target

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis cashed in on his only target with a 21-yard touchdown grab against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9.

Kendrick Bourne Cashes Lottery Ticket

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne netted his only target for a seven-yard touchdown in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Tevin Coleman Crashes Back To Earth

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman gained just 23 yards on 12 carries in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals, contributing another 13 yards on two catches.

Emmanuel Sanders Loving Life In Red And Gold

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders roped seven of nine targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Jimmy Garoppolo Lights It Up

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo carved up the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9, passing for 317 yards and four touchdowns in a victory.
