San Francisco 49ers WR Jalen Hurd's (back) back injury is healed, and he is expected to be ready for the start of the offseason program in April.
Huddle Up: Hurd lost a majority of his rookie season to injuries, but his size should make him a great fit in San Francisco's physical, run-heavy offense. He could be worth a late-round flier in 2020.

San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis needs to show a 'much greater sense of urgency' in 2020, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: After showing promise at the end of his rookie year, Pettis finished with just 11 catches in 2019, disappearing from the offense. Fantasy owners can leave him on the waiver wire to open the 2020 season.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's 31 pass attempts of 20 or more yards in 2019 were tied for 29th in the league and were the fewest among quarterbacks who started all 16 games.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo had a handful of big performances last year, and 15 of his 27 touchdown passes came in four games. With the 49ers leaning heavily on the run, the big plays and big games are likely to remain sporadic for Garoppolo in 2020. Consider him a QB2.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders said he hasn't thought much about next season yet but enjoyed his time with the team in 2019. 'I love the Niners organization, so we're going to see what's to happen,' Sanders said.
Huddle Up: Sanders had a a couple of big performances after joining the 49ers, but he was held below 50 yards in seven of his 10 games with the team, recording 25 yards or less five times. If he does return, he would be a matchup-based flex option in San Francisco's run-heavy attack.

San Francisco 49ers QB JImmy Garoppolo will remain the team's starting quarterback, head coach Kyle Shanahan said in an interview released Thursday, Feb. 6.
Huddle Up: Despite the 49ers' 2019 success, Garoppolo had an up-and-down season and finished 15th overall among fantasy QBs. He'll remain a solid QB2 option in one of the league's top offenses.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon said he hopes to remain with the 49ers and indicated that he would be open to restructuring his contract.
Huddle Up: McKinnon missed the entire 2019 season because of an injury and is behind Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida on the depth chart. Fantasy players can keep an eye on his situation because he may have some fantasy value if he joins a new team.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida did not play a single offensive staff in Super Bowl LIV, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Breida is set to become a restricted free agent in March. It's unclear why he became the forgotten man in San Francisco's backfield so quickly, although his role dried up shortly after he fumbled twice in a Week 15 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Breida has done enough during his time in San Francisco to draw some interest from other teams, but his fantasy prospects look bleaker now than they did at the same time last year.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle likely will receive a lucrative contract extension this offseason.
Huddle Up: Kittle has been one of the top tight ends for several years and will continue to be a main target in the passing game for the 49ers moving forward. He will be a must-start option in fantasy leagues in 2020.

San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa was named the 2019 Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year Saturday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Bosa racked up nine sacks, 47 combined tackles, one interception, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in his rookie season. He appeared in all 16 games with 14 starts. He'll be making life difficult for opposing quarterbacks for years to come and should be among the league's sack leaders on a routine basis.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 31, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LIV.
Huddle Up: Coleman likely will be sharing playing time with Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida during the game but may still have a solid role in the offense. He can be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel has had more receptions (62) in his rookie season (including playoffs) than former 49ers WRs Jerry Rice (53) and Terrell Owens (36) did in their first pro seasons and has as many 100-yard games (3) as Rice and Owens had as rookies combined.
Huddle Up: Samuel, a second-round pick, has especially come on strong late this season, totaling 331 total yards, including 110 rushing, and two touchdowns over the Niners' last four games, including a pair of postseason contests, and that's despite the team's notorious lack of passing in the playoffs. Even when not catching passes, though, Samuel has had at least one rushing attempt in 10 of 18 games (17 rushes total) this season, including three carries for 49 yards in the postseason so far.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo only has attempted 27 passes so far in two postseason games. If the 49ers throw 25 or fewer times in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, Feb. 2, they'll finish in the top five in terms of fewest pass attempts by a Super Bowl team in a single postseason. Each of the current five teams on the list played in 1974 or earlier, and each of them wound up winning the Super Bowl.
Huddle Up: Jimmy G. infamously has thrown for only 208 yards and one TD this postseason, and while the 49ers' running game does match up well with the Chiefs' less-than-stout run defense, count on the 49ers having to air it out more Sunday in order to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes and the explosive K.C. offense. Keep in mind that when the opposition has scored 21 or more points this season (seven games) against the 49ers, Garoppolo has averaged 35.1 passing attempts, 24 completions and 295.9 passing yards per outing.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 29.
Huddle Up: Coleman may be a game-time decision for the Super Bowl, but he appears to have a good chance to play based on his practice participation. He will be part of a committee at running back if he plays and can be a possible flex option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) said his injured shoulder is feeling good but wants to see how his range of motion is and how he will be able to manage the pain in his shoulder.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Coleman's practice participation this week to see if he will be in any danger of missing the Super Bowl. He will be part of a committee if he plays and can be a flex option.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (shoulder) said he has been playing the last two seasons with a torn labrum in his right shoulder and does not plan to have surgery on the shoulder.
Huddle Up: Kittle seems to be playing fine despite the injury and continues to be an important part of the running and passing game. He continues to be one of the top tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start fantasy option.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle in 2019 received the highest-ever full-season grade given to a tight end by Pro Football Focus, and has been named the site's 2019 Dwight Stephenson Award winner as the best player regardless of position.
Huddle Up: In catching 85 of 107 targets for 1,053 yards and five TDs, Kittle finished as fantasy's No. 3 tight end in both standard and PPR leagues. He's made more of an impact with his run blocking so far this postseason, but he'll be near the top of fantasy TE wish lists this summer once again.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 24, and is considered questionable for Super Bowl LIV.
Huddle Up: Coleman probably will need to practice at some point next week if he wants to play in the Super Bowl. He will share playing time with Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida if he is active and could be a flex option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 23.
Huddle Up: Coleman did some solo work as he recovers from a dislocated shoulder. Expect him to play in Super Bowl LIV Sunday, Feb. 2.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert gained 158 of his 220 rushing yards after contact in the NFC Championship Game win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 19. It was the most yards after contact by a running back in the postseason since 2006.
Huddle Up: Next up is a Chiefs run defense that surrendered 128.2 yards per game during the regular season -- seventh most in the league -- but the larger fantasy question is whether Mostert will enter 2020 as the Niners' lead back. A standout game on the Super Bowl stage surely will go a long way toward cementing that.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 22. The 49ers did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: The 49ers are optimistic about Coleman's status for Super Bowl LIV, but he may be a game-time decision. He will share snaps with Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida if he plays and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) suffered a dislocated shoulder during the NFC Championship game but had it popped back into place, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. The team is still waiting on the results from Coleman's MRI.
Huddle Up: Coleman could be a game-time decision for the game, so fantasy players should keep an eye on his status over the next few weeks. He could be a starting fantasy option if he plays.

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.
