San Francisco 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk (knee) left the Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns in the third quarter due to an apparent left knee injury. He was taken off on a cart from the sidelines to the locker room after a visit to the medical tent.
Huddle Up: Juszczyk doesn't have a whole lot of fantasy value himself, but his presence blowing up potential tacklers opens up more room for guys like Matt Breida, Tevin Coleman, etc. Stay tuned.

San Francisco 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk (back) wore a non-contact jersey in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25, but he said he 'absolutely' will return from a back injury that has kept him sidelined for the past two games. That's good news for RB Carlos Hyde.
Huddle Up: While Juszczyk has very little fantasy appeal, the team's official website mentions that the fullback has been responsible for opening up running lanes for several of Carlos Hyde's biggest runs this season. The return of Juszczyk is great for Hyde's fantasy outlook.

Baltimore Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk (32-of-58) out-snapped RBs Terrance West (26-of-58) and Kenneth Dixon (15-of-58) in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles in large part because he was the team's lone back in the game on third downs. The Ravens reportedly still don?t trust West or Dixon in third-down, pass-protection situations.
Huddle Up: It didn't seem to be a problem in Week 14, as Dixon saw 42 snaps and was peppered with targets in a loss to the New England Patriots. However, neither Dixon nor West saw even half of the team's snaps against Philly. Baltimore ranks second in the league with 584 pass attempts, so this lack of trust partly explains why neither back can seem to establish any consistency in fantasy. As a result, West and Dixon are no better than flex plays in Week 16 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
