San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has received some trade interest this offseason, but the 49ers have indicated that they would want a first-round pick in return for Garoppolo.
Huddle Up: General manager John Lynch has said Garoppolo will be the starter in 2021, but the team likely will select a quarterback with the third overall pick in the 2021 draft. Garoppolo probably will start for a team next season and should be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's 2022 salary of $11.45 million became guaranteed Thursday, April 1.
Huddle Up: It was a lost year for Kittle in 2020, but he'll remain one of the top-three TE options in this year's drafts.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is still part of the team's plans even though they acquired the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to general manager John Lynch.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation because Garoppolo could be moved if the 49ers receive a solid trade offer. Garoppolo probably would be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is not a trade target for the New England Patriots at this point, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Patriots re-signed Cam Newton this offseason, and he appears to be the leading candidate to start at this point. He has some fantasy value because of his legs but would be only a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts. Garoppolo's status is uncertain after the 49ers acquired the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but he would also be a No. 2 quarterback if he remains the starter.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will not be traded and still figures in the team's plans, according to sources, despite the 49ers trading up to acquire the third-overall pick in the 2021 draft Friday, March 26.
Huddle Up: Sure, Jimmy G, could definitely still remain as a 2021 placeholder if the Niners, say, were to draft a Trey Lance, a QB with a very limited number of college starts. But the likelihood of a Garoppolo trade grew exponentially with Friday's blockbuster move, and if the right deal is offered, look for the Niners to deal him away without much hesitation.

San Francisco WR Deebo Samuel's 'contact balance' makes him to tough bring down, according to OT Trent Williams, and CB Richard Sherman compared Samuel's ability to run through tackles to that of retired RB Marshawn Lynch.
Huddle Up: Samuel has been a monster after the catch since entering the league, and while he battled injuries in his sophomore season, he has proven to be a versatile playmaker when healthy. Consider him a WR3 with WR2 upside heading into 2021.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be the starting quarterback for the 49ers next season as long as he is healthy, according to general manager John Lynch.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo was limited to six games this season because of injuries but has thrown 34 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if anything changes, but Garoppolo can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for the 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert had the quickest top speed in the NFL last season with a carry he touched 23.09 mph, according to Next Gen Stats. He also had the second-fastest top speed at 22.73 on a different carry last season.
Huddle Up: He's under contract for one more year with the Niners, and he's about to turn 29. Don't mistake him as a young, blooming back. He had trouble staying healthy last year, but he has proven to be a quality RB2 in fantasy when healthy. The caveat is "when healthy."

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel is averaging 9.8 yards after the catch since 2019, which is most among wide receivers in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Samuel struggled with injuries this season and was limited to seven games and 391 yards. He is a main option in the passing game when healthy and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon, a pending unrestricted free agent, has said several times recently that he does not expect to be back with the 49ers next season.
Huddle Up: McKinnon totaled only 114 touches in 16 games last season as he returned from a two-year injury absence, and seems certain to be headed elsewhere as a third-down specialist after his 33 catches and 46 targets in 2020. Depending on where he lands, McKinnon could be of late-round interest in PPR drafts.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle finished with 48 catches for 634 yards in eight games in 2020, and his 79.25 receiving yards per game ranked second among tight ends.
Huddle Up: Kittle still managed to finish in the top 10 in receiving yards at his position despite missing half the season and dealing with a quarterback carousel. He is a top-three fantasy option at the tight end position heading into the 2021 season.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk recorded at least 70 receiving yards in seven of his 12 games in 2020, and he topped 70 yards in six of his final seven games.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk was on a pace for 80 catches and just under 1,000 yards over 16 games, and his strong finish to the year is an encouraging sign. He will have WR3 upside entering his sophomore season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. signed a one-year contract Tuesday, Jan. 26, but financial terms weren't disclosed. He was scheduled to be a restricted free agent at the end of the league year.
Huddle Up: Wilson totaled 733 yards from scrimmage and 10 combined rushing and receiving touchdowns in 12 games while making three starts in the 2020 season. He could be an RB2 or 3 option in 2021 fantasy drafts depending on how many others return to the 49ers' backfield.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Kendrick Bourne and George Kittle probably will be the main targets in the passing game with the team missing their top two receivers. Kittle is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues, while Bourne could be a possible flex option.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Kendrick Bourne likely will be the top receiver for the 49ers this week with Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk unavailable. He will be facing a good Seattle Seahawks defense but can still be a flex option in some leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Samuel has been sidelined for several weeks because of the injury and appears unlikely to play in the regular season finale. Fantasy players should look for other options and keep Samuel on the bench.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: WR Brandon Aiyuk already has been ruled out for Week 17 so Samuel is in line to play a big role if he's able to suit up. He should be a low-end WR1 with other top options likely to sit this week.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will not be available for the Week 17 game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: C.J. Beathard is coming off a terrific Week 16 game and will be receiving another start with Garoppolo out. Beathard could be an option in some two-quarterback leagues but should be avoided in standard leagues.

San Francisco 49ers PK Robbie Gould agreed to a two-year, $7.25 million extension Wednesday, Dec. 30. The deal is fully guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Gould's value suffered because of the slew of injuries the team had this year. It's likely to revamp next year as he'll be an upper-middle kicking option in drafts.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk (ankle) suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals and will not play in Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: It's a sad way for Aiyuk to wrap up his rookie campaign, but he proved more than capable of lighting up defenses despite average quarterback play. George Kittle will remain the focal point of the passing game moving forward, but Aiyuk was dynamic enough in 2020 to be on equal footing with Deebo Samuel for top receiver honors in San Francisco entering next season. He figures to be a trendy WR3 pick in 2021 drafts.

San Francisco 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk caught two passes for 10 yards and two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Juszczyk does not have a big role in the offense but has posted four receiving touchdowns in the last four games. He will see a few targets next week but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk caught one pass for 15 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16. He also rushed for 16 yards on one carry during the game.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk had been playing very well over the last month but was targeted only twice against the Cardinals. He should be more involved in the passing game next week and can be at least a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught four passes for 92 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Kittle rejoined the lineup this week and was the top option for C.J. Beathard in the passing game. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues when healthy.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed for 183 yards on 22 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16. He also caught one pass for 21 yards and one touchdown during the game.
Huddle Up: Wilson was most of the offense for the 49ers this week against the Cardinals. He should receive most of the work again next week and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (foot) will start in Week 16's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: With the Niners not having much to play for after being eliminated from playoff contention, Kittle will see his first game action since Week 8, although he is expected to see a limited number of offensive snaps. That being said, he is still worthy of consideration for fantasy lineups as long as owners don't have either Travis Kelce or Darren Waller.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: With Mostert out of the picture, Jeff Wilson Jr. should be a viable flex option over the final two weeks of the regular season.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Brandon Aiyuk will continue to be the main receiver for the 49ers with Samuel unavailable and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues because he has a touchdown in four of the last five games.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 16.

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (foot) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated Thursday that his stud tight end will be on "somewhat of a pitch count." With San Francisco already eliminated from the playoffs and Kittle not having played since Week 8, fantasy owners need to calculate whether the risk of getting potentially 30 to 40 snaps from Kittle gives them more upside than a full complement of snaps from their other option(s) at the position. Generally speaking, Kittle is worth considering if owners don't have Travis Kelce or Darren Waller on their roster(s).
