San Francisco 49ers WR Richie James was good for three grabs and 26 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints, and he also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: James burst onto the scene with nine grabs for 184 yards and a touchdown last Thursday against Green Bay, but he crashed back to Earth hard in this one. He remains nothing more than a fantasy option for those in deeper leagues. The 49ers are off in Week 11.

San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne posted four catches for 26 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Bourne has stepped up with at least four receptions in the past two games, totaling 12 grabs for 107 yards on 15 targets. Still, he is more of a WR5 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The 49ers are on a bye in Week 11.

San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed registered five receptions for 62 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Reed has always had plenty of talent, but he has had a tough time staying on the field for lengths of time. He has been filling in with George Kittle banged up, but the team has a bye in Week 11, giving Kittle two more weeks to heal. Reed is likely to see a minimal role once Kittle is ready.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk ended up with seven receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 14 targets in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The rookie out of Arizona State has scored in back-to-back games, and three of the past four outings overall, and he has 75 or more yards with at least six catches in each of the past three. He has emerged as a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues, but you'll need to make other plans with the 49ers are off in Week 11.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 18 times for just 33 yards, or 1.8 yards per attempt, in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints. He also added a 13-yard catch on three targets.
Huddle Up: McKinnon was getting a chance to be the workhorse, but he struggled in the role. He should only be used as a PPR option in deeper fantasy formats at this point. The 49ers are off in Week 11.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens completed 24-of-38 passes for 247 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints and he ran for three yards.
Huddle Up: Mullens has thrown one or no touchdown passes in four of his five starts while getting picked off five times. Since he lit up the Giants in his first start in Week 3, he has done next to nothing. He is only worth using as a low-end QB2 in deeper fantasy leagues which use two starting signal callers. The 49ers are off in Week 11, so this might be the last start for Mullens with Jimmy Garoppolo getting two more weeks to heal.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Brandon Aiyuk will continue to be the main receiver for the 49ers as long as Samuel is sidelined. Aiyuk can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 10.
Huddle Up: JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon will share playing time this week with Coleman out of the lineup. Both players could be flex options in deeper fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne on Friday, Nov. 13, was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list, and he is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Bourne, who caught a season-high eight passes for 81 yards on 10 targets in his last outing in Week 8, is back for a Niners offense desperate for healthy playmakers. He's a WR3/flex option this week in deeper leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Samuel is not expected to play this week, but fantasy players can check on his official status later in the week. Brandon Aiyuk will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the 49ers and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Coleman likely will miss at least one game because of the injury, so JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon will share most of the playing time at running back. Both have a chance to be flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 11, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he is hopeful Coleman will be back for the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams on Nov. 29 after the team's bye.
Huddle Up: There was an outside chance Coleman could have returned to lead the 49ers backfield, but instead it appears JaMycal Hasty, Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter will be the three backs for Shanahan against the Rams. McKinnon might be the best of the lot from a fantasy perspective.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Samuel will be a WR3 if cleared to return, as he doesn't have much competition in the 49ers' thin pass-catching corps right now.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) was ruled out for Week 10 by head coach Kyle Shanahan Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will split backfield work for as long as Mostert remains sidelined. Any one of them can be started as an RB2/FLEX option but each comes with a low floor. McKinnon is likely the safest play.

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens remains the team's starter, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday, Nov. 6, and will get 'the first opportunity' Nov. 15, in the team's next game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Mullens has topped 20 fantasy points only once in three starts and has five TD passes and eight turnovers (four interceptions, four fumbles) on the season, making him only usable in two-quarterback leagues at this point.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) has not been recommended for surgery, according to a report Friday, Nov. 6. He will be reevaluated after 4-6 weeks and potentially be able to return this season.
Huddle Up: Some positive 49ers health news for a change. This timetable, though, brings us to the last few weeks of the regular season, and if the Niners aren't in contention at that point, they might just go ahead and close out the year with Nick Mullens or C.J. Beathard.

San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed (knee) had one reception for three yards in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted twice.
Huddle Up: There was some thought that Reed would be heavily involved offensively Thursday night given the 49ers' lengthy injury list, but that was not the case as Reed played only 13 snaps (Ross Dwelley played 42). It's possible that the team didn't want to ask too much of the oft-injured Reed right after he came off the IR, or they might simply view Dwelley as a better option at this point. We should know more in Week 10, though if you're hurting at the position and have a spot to stash Reed it might not be a bad move.

San Francisco 49ers TE Ross Dwelley had three catches for 52 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Dwelley made a nice shoestring catch on a 36-yard grab and finished second on the team in receiving yards. He also played the majority of the snaps, logging 42 to just 13 for Jordan Reed. That could simply be a concession to Reed just being activated from IR, or it could mean that the 49ers view him as their top tight end with George Kittle potentially lost for the season. While it's probably too early to make a move on Dwelley, he's absolutely worth adding to your watch list.

San Francisco 49ers WRs Richie James caught nine passes for 184 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 5. He was targeted a team-high 13 times.
Huddle Up: Normally the team's No. 4 receiver, James was Mullens' top target Thursday night, connecting with him on several big plays. Granted, most of it came late against Green Bay's reserves, but it was still an encouraging performance. Whether that means anything come Week 10 is debatable, though, and almost certainly hinges on the statuses of Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne.

San Francisco 49ers RB JaMycal Hasty carried the ball four times for three yards in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers. He also had two receptions for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: Hasty had a little buzz after rushing 18 times for 94 yards (5.2 YPC) in Weeks 6 and 7, but his last 16 carries have covered just 32 yards, and he clearly took a backseat to Jerick McKinnon on Thursday. If you're desperate for help at running back you might wanna keep Hasty on your bench to see if Week 10's touches look any different.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon carried 12 times for 52 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 5. McKinnon also caught three passes for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: McKinnon scored with four seconds remaining to add some much-needed value to an otherwise mediocre outing where he combined for 68 total yards. The good news is that he got 15 touches to JaMycal Hasty's six and looks to be the top back to own in San Francisco at least until one of their other backs can return from injury.

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk will remain on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and miss the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Nov. 5, against the Green Bay Packers, despite teammate Kendrick Bourne's negative virus test Thursday morning. Bourne is undergoing further testing, and Aiyuk was placed on the COVID-19 list due to contact tracing to Bourne.
Huddle Up: A tough all-around break for Aiyuk and his fantasy owners as the rookie receiver was looking to build on his back-to-back strong games of 115 and 91 receiving yards on 14 combined catches. Instead, it figures to be Trent Taylor and Richie James who are next up in the Niners' depleted WR corps Thursday night. Definitely, though, hold on to Aiyuk if at all possible.

San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne's positive COVID-19 test Wednesday, Nov. 4, appears to be a false positive, a source close to Bourne said Thursday. However, Bourne will remain on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and sit out Thursday night's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: A rough 2020 break, if true, for Bourne as he and the 49ers still must follow the league's virus protocols.

San Francisco 49ers WRs Richie James (ankle) and Trent Taylor might be in line for larger roles in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 5 with WRs Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and Deebo Samuel each hitting the COVID-19 list.
Huddle Up: James is listed as questionable, while Taylor is not on the injury report. The team is likely to make roster moves to bolster the position, but these two are sneaky low-cost targets for DFS, not necessarily seasonal fantasy play.
