Free-agent RB Shaun Draughn (Giants) worked out for the New Orleans Saints Monday, Oct. 16, according to a source.

New York Giants RB Shaun Draughn (ankle) is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list but is close to participating in practice, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Footballguys view: The Giants are not blown away with Paul Perkins, so there's an opportunity to impress. Orleans Darkwa is pushing for a featured role and when Draughn returns he'd just be competing for a roster spot.

  49ers | Shaun Draughn expected to start finale    Sat Dec 31, 06:14 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn is in line to get the start in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks with Carlos Hyde ruled out due to a left MCL sprain.

Footballguys view: It's almost all a crapshoot at running back this week. We're not expecting a robust day from the 49ers on Sunday, and that means Draughn may not do much if things go the way we expect.

  49ers | Shaun Draughn to share workload    Wed Oct 19, 10:05 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn was limited to just one rush and no receptions on one target in Week 7 with RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) exiting early. He and RB Mike Davis are expected to split carries if Hyde is sidelined, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Footballguys view: The situation is one fantasy owners should avoid. With the split there may not be much fantasy production to go around. We've got Davis as a RB3/flex while Draughn is more of a RB4/flex in Week 7.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde expected to miss Week 7    Wed Oct 19, 02:14 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19, and is not expected to play in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to take note here. The 49ers play against the Buccaneers on Sunday (at home), so don't expect more than RB3/flex production. RBs Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn likely would split carries if Hyde is ruled out.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (ribs) was not able to play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, because of injured ribs.

Footballguys view: Draughn is still considered the primary backup to Carlos Hyde at this time according to head coach Chip Kelly. With Hyde (concussion) banged up, we could see more opportunity for guys like Draughn or Mike Davis.

Footballguys view: Draughn was banged up in joint practices with the Broncos last week. However, head coach Chip Kelly declared that Draughn was the no.2 RB behind starter Carlos Hyde.

  49ers | Shaun Draughn is the backup     Mon Aug 22, 02:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn is the No. 2 running back, according to head coach Chip Kelly. RBs DuJuan Harris and Mike Davis are competing for the No. 3 position.

Footballguys view: Draughn was injured (ribs) during the joint practices with the Broncos last week and missed the team's second preseason game. He'll be the backup to Carlos Hyde, but Draughn may see a large enough role as a receiver to warrant taking him as a last-round flier in deeper PPR leagues.

  49ers | DuJuan Harris to be odd-man out?    Wed Aug 3, 11:24 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB DuJuan Harris is projected to be cut by beat writer Grant Cohn, with RBs Carlos Hyde, Shaun Draughn and Kelvin Taylor expected to be the top three backs. Harris is expected to be the odd-man out because he isn't adept at catching the football.

Footballguys view: Chip Kelly wants backs who can be on the field for passing downs, and utilized out of the backfield, neither of which Harris is adept at. Carlos Hyde leads what could be a disappointing backfield, though we think he'll get enough word to warrant a RB2 spot on your roster.

  49ers | Two RBs looking to move up order    Tue Jun 21, 01:13 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB DuJuan Harris saw extended reps in the offseason, and he and RB Kelvin Taylor will be looking to move up the depth chart. Currently Harris and Taylor are behind RBs Carlos Hyde and Shaun Draughn in the pecking order.

Footballguys view: Harris is a good all-purpose back, but injuries and inconsistencies have plagued his pro career. Taylor, son of former Jaguars star RB Fred Taylor, is a tough player who is willing to run between the tackles. The rookie never fumbled in his college career at Florida but needs to show better patience and anticipation of cut-back lanes if he wants to play up to his potential as a pro.

  49ers | Shaun Draughn in line for big role    Tue Jun 21, 01:11 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn's ability to catch passes brings some versatility to the offense, and beat writer Michael Wagaman predicts Draughn will see plenty of playing time.

Footballguys view: Draughn isn't a name that screams fantasy value. The 49ers will lead the way with Carlos Hyde, and he should be the centerpiece of the rushing attack...if not the entire offense. Hyde is going off the board at RB18 (4.07) in 12-team PPR leagues, and Draughn is not getting drafted. Fantasy owners should keep him on the waiver-wire speed dial just in case something happens to Hyde, but we're not predicting much fantasy value for him if Hyde is healthy.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Shaun Draughn agreed to a one-year deal to remain with the 49ers Wednesday, March 2.

Footballguys view: Draughn might be a decent fit in Chip Kelly's offense, but we're not really sure what that will look like in the end. We remain optimistic for Draughns, but cautiously so.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 30.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn has totaled at least 35 rushing yards and 35 receiving yards in each of his last four games. Additionally, Draughn has not caught fewer than four passes in each of those contests.

Footballguys view: Opportunity is Draughn's greatest asset from a fantasy perspective. He can perform each week like a RB2 because he's going to get a bulk of the work for the 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn had 16 carries for 58 yards and four catches for 38 yards in a 17-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9.

Footballguys view: The one back that no one was picking up out of the three new 49ers additions ended up being the one to win the job. Carlos Hyde could be back after the bye, but if he isn't Draughn is poised to have flex value in the second half of the season.
