San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has the confidence of former 49ers QB and Hall of Famer Steve Young. 'When they've asked him to raise up and go win it, he did it,' Young said. 'Those are hard things to do. That just doesn't happen. When you see it in the NFL and someone is able to do it, you go, once you've done it, you can do it again. You can keep doing it.'
Huddle Up: Jimmy G wasn't a fantasy factor with his 11-of-19, 131-yards, one-TD, one-interception game in the divisional-round playoff win over the Vikings, but that's largely due to the Niners' overwhelming success on the ground (47 rushes-186 yards). When Garoppolo has been forced to pass, he's delivered the majority of the time, and his fantasy numbers Sunday likely will depend on how much the opposing Packers are able to get done against the San Fran defense.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is the only player since special-teams tackles were first tracked in 2001 to lead his team in rushing yards and special-teams tackles in the same season.
Huddle Up: While Mostert is a breakout talent who led the Niners in rushing in each of their last six regular-season games, keep in mind that it was Tevin Coleman who led the squad in rushing attempts (22), yards (105) and touchdown runs (2) in the divisional-round playoff win over the Vikings as Mostert (12-58-0) battled a calf cramp which he said was an after affect of an illness he dealt with the week leading up to the game. In the meantime, it's a plus matchup Sunday against a Packers defense which allowed the ninth-most rushing yards (120.1) per game during the regular season.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Kittle is one of the top options in the passing game for the 49ers and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Coleman is coming off one of his best games of the season last week and should continue to receive most of the carries in the running game. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) said his ankle is feeling 'fabulous' Friday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Kittle is by far the best tight end left in the playoffs, and he'll come at a steep price in DFS against the Green Bay Packers. He's worth it, too.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Mostert's on track to play in the NFC Championship Sunday, Jan. 19. He took a back seat to RB Tevin Coleman in the Divisional Round game against the Minnesota Vikings, but he was still able to rack up 58 yards and 12 carries. He's worth starting, but Coleman should be viewed as the better option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (elbow) practiced in full Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: It's Coleman's second straight full practice, and he should be good to go for the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 19. He's coming off one of his best games of the season, and he'll be worth starting once again in all formats.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 16, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Great news for Kittle after he sat out Wednesday's workouts with the nagging ankle injury. Unless we hear of any kind of setback later this week, count on him being good to go for Sunday afternoon's NFC title tilt.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Mostert has received at least 10 carries in each of the last six games and should have a similar role this week. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (elbow) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Coleman is coming off a two-touchdown performance last week and should continue to receive a majority of carries in the running game. He can be a starting running back in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) is scheduled to count $8.55 million against the 2020 salary cap, and releasing him would save $4.55 million in '20. He has a 2021 option year at $9.2 million against that year's cap. McKinnon passing a physical will determine how his contract savings are factored, and $2.6 million of his $6.5 million base salary is scheduled to be guaranteed as of April 1.
Huddle Up: With a trio of talented backs from 2019 seemingly ahead of a healthy McKinnon, it's pretty much a certainty that he'll be playing elsewhere or not at all in 2020. There's a possibility he could restructure his deal with Matt Breida facing free agency. At any rate, the former Minnesota Viking shouldn't be in anyone's fantasy plans at this time for 2020 drafts.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is set to make his first postseason start Saturday, Jan. 11, when the 49ers host the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round.
Huddle Up: There are concerns abour Jimmy G's debut, especially given the way the Vikings' defense treated Saints QB Drew Brees a week ago, but he's done more than fine in five matchups against playoff teams this season, completing 67.4 percent of his passes for an average of 260 yards, eight total passing TDs and two interceptions.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (personal) was excused from practice Friday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Sanders has posted at least 60 yards in two of the last four games and will see a handful of targets in the Divisional Round playoff game. He can be a starting option in fantasy leagues next week.

San Francisco 49ers LB Kwon Alexander (pectoral) practiced Thursday, Jan. 2, and is a candidate to be activated off the Reserve/Injured list and play in the postseason.
Huddle Up: Alexander totaled 34 tackles and had an interception in eight games before being injured on Halloween, and we'll monitor his progress over the next week or so as the 49ers prepare for the divisional round.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Samuel has been held to 50 yards or less in four of the last five games but has been targeted 17 times over the last three games. He could be a flex option in some leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) was limited at practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Samuel hasn't found the end zone since Week 13, and he hasn't topped 100 receiving yards since Week 11. Still, he remains a big piece of the San Francisco passing game alongside TE George Kittle and WR Emmanuel Sanders. He'd be a strong flex against the Seattle Seahawks this week if he's able to return.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 25. The 49ers did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Samuel has cooled off during the last few weeks with 45 yards or less in three of the last four games. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida did not record a touch in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Breida has been San Francisco's most explosive back, but after a pair of fumbles in Week 15, it appears he may be in the doghouse. If you are in a league that includes Week 17 in its scoring, Raheem Mostert is the the 49ers running back you want to own.

San Francisco 49ers LB Fred Warner finished with 11 tackles, including eight solo stops, and returned an interception for a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Warner has become a solid IDP option following the injury to fellow linebacker Kwon Alexander. Warner has recorded at least nine tackles in seven of his last eight games, recording three sacks, two forced fumbles and a pick six in that stretch.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders caught three of his six targets for 61 yards in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Sanders has had a couple of big outings for the 49ers, but he has only topped 50 receiving yards in a three of his nine games with the team. He's a matchup-based WR3.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught five of his eight targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was a typical day at the office for one of the elite tight ends in the game. Kittle continues to be one of the most reliable fantasy options at any position.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel caught four of his six targets for 31 yards and rushed three times for 28 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Samuel's share of the passing targets has dipped since the addition of Emmanuel Sanders, but the 49ers have been using him in the run game more often. His big-play ability gives him potential as a boom-or-bust flex play.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman rushed five times for 33 yards in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Coleman has carried the ball five times or less in four straight games while Raheem Mostert has become the main man in the San Francisco backfield. Coleman has become no more than a handcuff down the stretch of the season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert rushed a team-high 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Mostert has now scored in five straight games, and more importantly, he has logged double-digit carries in four straight contests. There is some risk that the 49ers could ride a different back on any given week, bu Mostert is a viable flex option with RB2 upside.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught a career-high 13 of his 17 targets for 134 yards in Week 15 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Kittle dominated as a blocker, repeatedly stiff-armed potential tacklers and accounted for 67 percent of his team's 200 receiving yards. To put this performance in some more perspective, he was also targeted on half of Jimmy Garoppolo's pass attempts and his catch total was five more than in any other game this season. Kittle is making a strong push to be considered the best tight end in football and needs to be started everywhere he can be in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida carried four times for 11 yards and caught both of his targets for six yards in Week 15 versus the Atlanta Falcons. He also fumbled twice, losing one of them.
Huddle Up: Breida is probably the most dynamic running back San Francisco has, but his two-fumble performance in this one figures to keep him from being able to forge a committee with Raheem Mostert until the playoffs or next season. With the fantasy season coming to an end for most folks in Week 16, redraft owners can probably cut him if they need the roster spot.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman ran four times for 40 yards and was unable to catch his only target in Week 15 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Raheem Mostert got the bulk of the workload as expected in Week 15, leaving Coleman to pick up some of the scraps. He did break a 37-yard run late in the second quarter, but that was about the extent of his work for the day. Mostert did fumble once in Week 15, but it seems unlikely at this point that will be enough to get Coleman back in the mix enough to make him relevant in fantasy when San Francisco meets the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
