  49ers | Antonio Brown eyeing trade to San Fran?    Mon Jan 14, 12:29 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown wants to join the San Francisco 49ers 'really badly,' according to Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, who spoke with 95.7 The Game during an interview Monday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: The 49ers could certainly use a talent like Brown at the wide receiver position. Rice and Brown have reportedly 'often communicated in the past' and did so during a FaceTime chat Sunday, Jan. 13. Any team interested in Brown is going to have to surrender a second-round pick (at least) to the Steelers. Brown has a cap hit of $22.1 million in 2019 with $21.1 million remaining in dead money on his current contract.

  49ers | George Kittle a popular target    Fri Dec 28, 11:25 PM

Sam Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle is averaging six receptions on 9.3 targets for 92 yards per game since QB Nick Mullens took over as the starter in Week 9.

Footballguys view: It's been working for Kittle and Fantasy GMs thrilled to have him. When Jimmy Garoppolo returns to the lineup in 2019 it will be interesting to see if the targets take a slight dip for Kittle. They shouldn't as he's proven to be an effective weapon for the 49ers passing game. Kittle is locked in as a TE1 for Fantasy GMs in 2019.

  49ers | Steven Dunbar promoted    Wed Dec 26, 02:09 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Steven Dunbar was signed to the active roster from the practice squad Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Dunbar has been on the 49ers practice squad all season long after getting picked up as an undrafted free agent out of Houston earlier this year. He's got good size, measuring in at 6'3" 205 pounds and Dunbar has the skill set of a possession receiver. He's not the fastest wideout but he does know how to get open and he uses his size to his advantage. He's an intriguing deep dynasty prospect we've been monitoring since he came out of college.

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) has been diagnosed with a medial collateral ligament injury and will not play in Week 17 . He will not require surgery, however.

Footballguys view: The 49ers know that Pettis can be a part of their young WR corps of the future. Pettis showed off his trademark speed this year and made some downfield plays for the team. With QB Jimmy Garoppolo healthy next season, Pettis should become one of his primary targets when in need of a big play.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo may take part in workouts    Wed Dec 19, 11:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) may be able to participate in some offseason workouts in May and June, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. "I'm hoping he'll get into OTAs and do some non-contact stuff," Shanahan said. "It's always a little bit better when you're dealing with a quarterback as opposed to other positions because you can get them in 7-on-7 drills, which helps those guys get involved a lot faster."

Footballguys view: Garoppolo injured his ACL early in the season (Week 3) and has been on the road to recovery since then. He should be limited in OTAs if he's able to participate with the plan to ramp things up in training camp. At this time, there's no concern about him missing the start of the 2019 regular season.
