San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (ribs) is considered day-to-day because of injured ribs.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on McKinnon's practice participation during the week. He received a majority of the touches at running back last week, but his role this week is uncertain since Raheem Mostert may be able to play. McKinnon can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he receive most of the work at running back this week.

San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during the Week 3 game and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Reed will be sidelined for six to eight weeks.
Huddle Up: Reed was filling in for George Kittle but may not return until December because of the injury. Kittle has a chance to return this week, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He is a must-start option if he plays.

San Francisco 49ers TE Ross Dwelley caught four passes for 49 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Dwelley had a bigger role in the passing game because Jordan Reed left with injuries. He could be the starting tight end next week if Reed and George Kittle are not ready to play. Fantasy players can find better options and avoid Dwelley.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk caught five passes for 70 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also rushed for 31 yards and one touchdown on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has served as the No. 1 receiver with Deebo Samuel sidelined and showed a good connection with Nick Mullens this week. He can be considered a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option next week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed for 15 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also caught three passes for 54 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Wilson will continue to share playing time with Jerick McKinnon as long as Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman are sidelined. He should receive around 15 touches next week and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 38 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the New York Giants in Week 3. He also caught three passes for 39 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: McKinnon shared playing time with Jeff Wilson during the game and both received at least 15 touches during the game. He should receive a similar workload next week and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens went 25-for-36 for 343 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Mullens has played well in relief of Jimmy Garoppolo and may receive another start next week depending on Garoppolo's recovery. He would be facing the Philadelphia Eagles if he plays and can be a starter in two-quarterback leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 3 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Reed had a bigger role in the passing game with George Kittle out but Kittle may be back in the lineup next week. Reed will not have much value in fantasy leagues when he drops down the depth chart.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Nick Mullens will be the starting quarterback while Garoppolo is sidelined but should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (foot) has reportedly looked good enough in his rehab that head coach Kyle Shanahan expects him to practice next week, although it 'remains to be seen' if he'll be able to play in Week 4 against the left Philadelphia Eagles, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. 'I'm optimistic he'll be back next week. He had a real good week, last week hitting the rehab hard with all those guys. Just being able to watch him work out on the side, he looks real good running routes and he's been able to do it without pain,' Shanahan said.
Huddle Up: As luck would have it, the 49ers and Eagles will play next Sunday night, meaning it is possible many fantasy owners might not have the option of waiting to see if he'll be active. Either way, it's good news for Samuel as there was speculation that he might have made his foot injury worse prior to landing on IR. He'll be a WR3 with legitimate upside if and when he is cleared to play.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) has been ruled out of the team's Week 3 game Sunday, Sept. 27, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Kittle will miss a second straight week, forcing his fantasy owners to Plan B options. The 49ers' Jordan Reed, who caught 7-of-8 targets for 50 yards and a pair of TDs in Week 2, should be high on that list.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) won't play Sunday, Sept. 27, in Week 3, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: Coleman has avoided injured reserve so far, but he's going to miss at least one game after disappointing so far with 64 total yards and no scores on 21 touches in two games. He's droppable in stanard-size leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) won't play Sunday, Sept. 27, in Week 3, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: Mostert has been productive so far with 258 total yards and two TDs on 29 touches, but the Niners aren't going to put him and his MCL sprain out on the same East Meadowlands turf he was injured on a week ago against the Jets. His fantasy owners will need another RB2 option this week, perhaps San Fran. fill-in Jerick McKinnon.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) won't start Sunday, Sept. 27, in a Week 3 game against the New York Giants due to an ankle injury, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday.
Huddle Up: That will end an 18-game starting streak for Jimmy G, dating back to the start of the 2019 season. It might end up being only the one game, but perhaps much will depend on Nick Mullens' fill-in performance Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens will start Sunday, Sept. 27, against the New York Giants, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: In eight starts for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo in 2018, Mullens averaged 284.6 yards with 13 total TDs and 10 interceptions -- definitely usable in two-quarterback leagues. He does get a downgrade, though, with the Niners' depleted cast of pass-catchers, but still fire him up if you're short on options in a deeper two-QB or superflex league.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Kittle probably is considered questionable at this point, so fantasy players should check on his status later in the week. He is one of the top tight ends when healthy and should be a starting option if he is active.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo has not been ruled out at this point, but he probably will need at least a week to rest his sprained ankle. Nick Mullens is on track to start against the New York Giants and could be a starter in two-quarterback leagues.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens is likely to start in place of QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Mullens has minimal fantasy appeal even against the New York Giants.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) is likely headed to the Reserve/Injured list with a knee injury that's likely to keep him out for four weeks, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Third-year man Jeff Wilson could get his shot this week with Raheem Mostert (knee) unlikely to go as well. Wilson is a flex option in fantasy.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is considered day-to-day because of his high ankle sprain, according to a source. He has a small chance to play in Week 3 but is more likely to play in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor Garoppolo's practice participation this week to see if he has any chance to play this week. Nick Mullens will be the starting quarterback if Garoppolo is ruled out but should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) suffered a knee injury in Week 2 against the New York Jets that is expected to sideline him for 'multiple weeks,' according to a source.
Huddle Up: Coleman is expected to join Raheem Mostert on the sideline for Week 3 and perhaps longer. As a result, undrafted rookie free agent JaMycal Hasty is expected to be elevated from the practice squad to join Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson as the three active backs versus the New York Giants. McKinnon is expected to get the start and would be the recommended fantasy play but may be kept under 15 touches given his injury history. Nevertheless, he would be a high-upside flex play in that matchup.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in Week 2 and is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: During what was a brutal day for injuries on Sunday, Mostert appears to have gotten off easy. MCL sprains are no joke and can require multi-week absences, but the 28-year-old back seems shouldn't miss too much time. Expect the 49ers to exercise plenty of caution with Mostert this week in a game they should be able to win without him. Jerick McKinnon has been exceptional thus far for San Francisco and would be the preferred flex play over Tevin Coleman should Mostert sit versus the Giants.

San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed caught seven of his eight targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-13 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.
Huddle Up: With George Kittle sidelined, Reed turned back the clock became a focal point of the passing game. Kittle is expected to return in Week 3, but Reed will have streaming appeal if Kittle's status changes.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) rushed 14 times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 28 yards before exiting with a knee injury against the New York Jets in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Coleman took over as the lead back when Raheem Mostert suffered a knee injury of his own. Coleman would be a fantasy starter if he is ready to play in Week 3 and Mostert remains sidelined.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon rushed three times for 77 yards and a touchdown in a 31-13 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.
Huddle Up: McKinnon flashed big-play ability despite limited touches, but with both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman suffering injuries, he could end up being the lead back and a potential RB2 against the New York Giants in Week 3.
