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 QB C.J. Beathard went 13-for-22 for 182 yards and three touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16. He also rushed for 18 yards on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Beathard did not post a big yardage total this week but was able to find the end zone three times. He will receive another start next week against the Seattle Seahawks but should only be a possible starting option in two-quarterback 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.
Huddle Up: Jeff Wilson Jr. should receive most of the work at running back with Mostert sidelined and can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

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).

San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard will make a start in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals with QB Nick Mullens (elbow) out and QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) still sidelined. 'I've got nothing to lose at this point,' Beathard said Wednesday, Dec. 23. 'I'm going to go out and have some fun. This team has nothing to lose at this point. We're not going to make the playoffs. We've really go nothing to lose. We've got to go out there and leave it all on the field and just have some fun.'
Huddle Up: Beathard's last start came Oct. 28, 2018, ironically against the Arizona Cardinals, and he was beaten that day by Josh Rosen, who is now his teammate after signing with the 49ers on Wednesday.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Samuel is unlikely to play Saturday, Dec. 26, but fantasy managers are unlikely to miss out on much production with QB C.J. Beathard starting for the 49ers, anyway.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Mostert's highly unlikely to play in Week 16. RB Jeff Wilson Jr. is likely to be the lead back in a muddy backfield situation.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was a non-participant at practice Tuesday, Dec. 22.
Huddle Up: Samuel was forced to sit out Week 15 and WR Brandon Aiyuk continued his ascension as the de facto No. 1 receiver. Third-string QB C.J. Beathard will be under center in Week 16, so fantasy managers won't be missing much if Samuel sits out again. It may be better not to have the option to start him.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) didn't participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 22.
Huddle Up: Mostert is a candidate to be placed on the Reserve/Injured list and fantasy managers shouldn't be planning on having him in lineups Saturday.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (foot) has 'a chance' of playing in Week 16 versus the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. 'If he's good, I plan on him playing,' Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Huddle Up: Kittle made it known he intended to return this season shortly after suffering his foot injury and it appears he's going to have a shot to do so. The likelihood is that his snap count would be somewhat limited, but Shanahan is sharp enough to maximize those plays even if that ends up being the case. Fantasy owners would be taking a big risk in starting him in the fantasy finals if he is active, but it is also hard to argue with him being considered anything lower than the overall TE3 anytime he is active.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens (elbow) sustained a right elbow injury in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys that is expected to end his season and will require surgery, according to a source via NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Huddle Up: Once Mullens goes on the Reserve/Injured list, it will leave C.J. Beathard and Jimmy Garoppolo as the only quarterbacks on the roster, and it should be noted that Garoppolo was just designated for return from IR earlier Tuesday. In other words, Jerick McKinnon may need to fill in at quarterback if something happens to Beathard in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals. Beathard figures to be a downgrade for all San Francisco pass-catchers.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) reportedly suffered another high-ankle sprain to the same ankle he injured earlier this season, according to a source. Mostert is not expected to play again in 2020.
Huddle Up: This frees up Jeff Wilson to become the lead back for the 49ers over the final two games, although he appeared to tweak something in his leg in Week 15 on the only target he saw late in the game. If healthy, Wilson will be a high-upside RB2 option against the Arizona Cardinals in the fantasy finals who may cede a few touches to Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon on occasion.

San Francisco 49ers WR Richie James was good for four receptions for 56 yards on seven targets in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: James has shown some glimpses of brilliance at times, but fantasy owners shouldn't bother with him outside of the deepest fantasy leagues. The 49ers visit the Cardinals in Week 16, moving from the home locker room to the road side of State Farm Stadium, their temporary home due to COVID-19 restrictions in Santa Clara Co., Calif.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk ended up with nine receptions and 73 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Aiyuk has scored in four of the past five outings, and he has 73 or more yards and five or more receptions in each game during the span. He has emerged as a legitimate WR3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The 49ers are the away team at State Farm Stadium in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne registered four receptions for a game-high 86 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Bourne found the end zone for the first time since Week 5. He has three or more catches in each of his past six to emerge as a WR5 in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 16 in Arizona.
