Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/18/17 4:25pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: It was likely a day off for the 49ers' veteran wide receiver. The quarterback change from Brian Hoyer to C.J. Beathard is somewhat worrisome for Garcon since Hoyer targeted him so frequently, but Garcon remains far and away San Francisco's best passing threat. Don't take him out of the WR2 conversation.
George Kittle - TEPosted 10/18/17 4:30pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (back, elbow) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Kittle has started to make a name for himself over the last couple of weeks, tallying 11 catches for 129 yards and a touchdown in those games combined. He can serve as fellow rookie C.J. Beathard's safety blanket going forward and is nearing fringe TE1 territory.
C.J. Beathard - QBPosted 10/16/17 7:44am ET
San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard will be the starting quarterback moving forward, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Sunday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: The third-round pick out of Iowa was 19-for-36 for 245 yards, one touchdown and one pick against the Washington Redskins in Week 6. He's only an option in two-QB leagues.
Brian Hoyer - QBPosted 10/15/17 6:23pm ET
San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard replaced QB Brian Hoyer against the Washington Redskins in Week 6 and completed 19 of his 36 passes for 245 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Beathard will continue to play ahead of Hoyer going forward, but even if he is given the starting job, he doesn't need to be rostered.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/15/17 6:20pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde finished with 13 carries for 28 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes for 47 yards in a 26-24 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hyde has struggled running the ball the last two games, but he continues to see enough touches to deliver RB2 production most weeks. Expect more of the same against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7.
Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/15/17 6:33pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon caught five of his 12 targets for 55 yards in a 26-24 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Garcon didn't do a whole lot despite a season-high 12 targets, and the move to C.J. Beathard at quarterback may have played a role. The good news is he remained the go-to target in the passing attack despite the quarterback change. Consider him a WR3 candidate against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, especially in PPR formats.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/14/17 7:46pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde has been mentioned in trade talks, according to a general manager, and the same general manager said the 49ers are open to trading any veteran player for the right price.
Huddle Up: Hyde has been receiving plenty of touches for the 49ers this year, so a change of scenery might not be the best thing for his fantasy value. For now, he remains a volume-based RB2 heading into a Week 6 matchup with the Washington Redskins.
George Kittle - TEPosted 10/13/17 4:06pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Kittle is coming off a good Week 5 performance and should have a solid role in the passing game this week. Kittle can be a No. 2 tight end for owners but probably can stay on the bench against the Washington Redskins.
Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/13/17 3:55pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Garcon has been a solid fantasy option for owners this season and will be facing a banged-up Washington Redskins secondary this week. He can be a solid No. 3 receiver for owners this week.
Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/12/17 4:34pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Garcon has been targeted at least eight times in four of the five games this season and recorded 94 yards last week. He is the team's top receiver and can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver in Week 6.
George Kittle - TEPosted 10/12/17 4:19pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Kittle should be able to play in Week 6 despite the injury and is coming off a terrific Week 5 performance. He can be a No. 2 tight end for fantasy owners but probably should not be started this week.
George Kittle - TEPosted 10/11/17 4:50pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11
Huddle Up: Kittle scored his first NFL touchdown in Week 5 at Indianapolis, posting seven grabs for 83 yards on nine targets. He is gaining the trust of Brian Hoyer, especially in key situations, and he isn't a bad bye-week replacement if you need help at the position.
Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/11/17 4:47pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury related) was rested for practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Garcon was getting the veteran's mid-week rest, but you can expect he'll be ready for a crack against his former team, the Washington Redskins, in Week 6.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/9/17 5:17pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde will be the first running back to play in games and will be followed by RB Matt Breida, then the team will use the hot hand approach for the rest of the game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Hyde was off to a good start to the season but rushed for only 11 yards on eight carries during the Week 5 game. Breida rushed for 49 yards on 10 carries and appears to be in line for a bigger role in the offense. It will be hard for fantasy owners to trust either player since their roles can change each week, so Hyde and Breida probably should not be more than flex options moving forward.
Matt Breida - RBPosted 10/8/17 7:39pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed 10 times for 49 yards in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added 22 yards on three catches. He was targeted five times.
Huddle Up: Breida took advantage of the fact Carlos Hyde was stuck in neutral, and the Niners simply rolled with the hot hand. It's a situation worth keeping an eye on heading into Week 6 against the Redskins.
Brian Hoyer - QBPosted 10/8/17 7:39pm ET
San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 29 of his 46 pass attempts for 353 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: The yardage total was a season high, and he now has a pair of 300-yard games over the past three outings while tossing four touchdowns and two interceptions with a rushing score. He still isn't worth using on a regular basis in fantasy, but you can do worse if you need a bye-week replacement. The 49ers travel to meet the Redskins in Week 6.
George Kittle - TEPosted 10/8/17 7:49pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle posted seven receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts. He was targeted nine times.
Huddle Up: Kittle has developed a nice rapport with Brian Hoyer, who used him frequently in key late drives on the road. The rookie out of Iowa entered with just 10 grabs for 83 yards and no scores over his first four games, so he'll need to post at least one more good game soon before fantasy owners can rely on him.
Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/8/17 7:48pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon racked up eight receptions for 94 yards with 11 targets in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts, his original team.
Huddle Up: An odd trend is developing for Garcon. In even-numbered weeks, he is averaging 3.5 catches per game while averaging 31.0 receiving yards. In odd-numbered weeks, he is averaging 7.0 catches per game with 105.7 yards per game. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, if the trend continues, he'll struggle in Week 6 on the road against his another one of his former teams, the Redskins.
Marquise Goodwin - WRPosted 10/8/17 7:48pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin managed five receptions for 116 yards on 11 targets in the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Goodwin was back from a concussion and showed no ill effects of the injury. Someone has to step up in San Francisco and catch passes, so why not Goodwin? He isn't worth scooping up just yet, but if he has another decent game in Week 6 on the road against the Redskins he can be trusted.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/8/17 7:40pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed eight times for just 11 yards in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added just one catch for seven yards.
Huddle Up: Hyde was going nowhere, so Matt Breida saw a little more work and averaged 4.9 yards per carry. It might just be a temporary situation, but it's worth keeping an eye on into Week 6.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/6/17 6:41pm ET
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said negotiations have started with impending free agents, and he mentioned FS Eric Reid and RB Carlos Hyde while discussing the topic.
Huddle Up: Shanahan didn't explicitly say extension talks with Hyde have begun, but given the running back's strong start to the year, it would make sense for the 49ers to entertain signing him beyond the year. Hyde is a RB1 with a favorable matchup with the Indianapolis Colts on tap in Week 5.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/5/17 6:07pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (hip) was limited at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: This is just done in order to preserve Hyde's health. In other words, he's unquestionably going to be out there on Sunday against the Colts and will have his usual RB1 tag in a solid matchup. The 27-year-old is out to a nice start in 2017.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/4/17 6:06pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (hip) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Hyde was questionable going into last Sunday's tilt, but played through the ailment and looked fine. He's been solid thus far, averaging more than 80 rushing yards per game while also reeling in 17 catches for 88 yards to go with his two scores. He'll be in there for Week 5, when he has a favorable matchup on tap with the Colts.
Brian Hoyer - QBPosted 10/3/17 4:15am ET
San Francisco 49ers Brian Hoyer will remain in the starting quarterback job for the time being, as coach Kyle Shanahan told media he has 'not given any consideration' to a QB change.
Huddle Up: Hoyer completed only half of his passes in the team's latest game, and that won't get the job done for most fantasy owners. Hoyer is not a viable fantasy option.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/1/17 5:58am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (hip) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hyde was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be able to handle his normal workload and can be viewed as a RB2 in most fantasy formats.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 10/1/17 11:41am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (hip) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Hyde may not receive his normal workload because of the injury but should see most of the work at running back. He is a bit of a risky option for owners but can be a No. 2 running back in all leagues.
Pierre Garcon - WRPosted 10/1/17 8:27pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon posted four catches for 36 yards on eight targets in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Garcon exploded for seven grabs and 142 yards last week against the Rams, but took a giant step back. He was had to fight with Trent Taylor and Aldrick Robinson for the eye of Brian Hoyer in this one. Garcon remains nothing more than a low-end WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 against the Colts on the road.
Aldrick Robinson - WRPosted 10/1/17 8:26pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Aldrick Robinson hauled in three receptions for 52 yards in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. He was targeted a team-high 12 times.
Huddle Up: Robinson has been a downfield threat in his career, and he has all sorts of opportunity to see the field in San Francisco with no clear-cut No. 1 receiver and Marquise Goodwin leaving this one with a concussion. This was his busiest game of the season, so don't grab him in fantasy just yet, but keep an eye on him going forward. If he sees a healthy amount of targets again in Week 5 he might be worth stashing away.
Trent Taylor - WRPosted 10/1/17 8:26pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor posted five catches for 47 yards on 10 targets in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Taylor has been busy over the past two games, quickly catching on and carving out a role in the offense. However, he entered with just nine targets over the first three games, so give him at least one more week to see if he can do it again before relying upon him in the starting lineup.
Matt Breida - RBPosted 10/1/17 8:24pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed nine times for 16 yards in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added a catch for four yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Breida had a touchdown reception wiped out due to offensive pass interference. That was about the only highlight of the day. He was a speculative fantasy pickup this week with Carlos Hyde dealing with a hip injury, but the veteran was able to play and take on his usual workload. Breida isn't a bad handcuff for Hyde owners, but that's about it.
