  49ers | Vance McDonald held in check    Sun Dec 4, 04:29 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald caught two passes for nine yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 13.

Footballguys view: McDonald looked great on paper as Colin Kaepernick's #1 target against a Chicago defense without its starting inside linebackers, but he came up small as the whole passing game shrunk in the cold. The Jets game looks good on paper next week, but we know how that goes.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde runs well in Week 13    Sun Dec 4, 04:22 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 92 yards on 20 carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 13. He also caught one pass for six yards in the game.

Footballguys view: Hyde has been the one constant for the bottom dwelling 49ers this year. The Jets run defense might be too stiff to start Hyde against next week, but he has actually provided solid return on his mid-round price.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick bench in loss    Sun Dec 4, 04:08 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was benched in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 13 after he completed only one of his five passes for four yards during the game. He also sacked five times during the game and lost 25 yards. Kaepernick was replaced by QB Blaine Gabbert during the game.

Footballguys view: Kaepernick was a fantasy QB1 going into this one. The conditions certainly played a role and Chip Kelly said the most isn't permanent, but now it will be very tough to trust Kaepernick if he starts against the Jets next week.

  49ers | Vance McDonald drawing GM's attention    Tue Nov 29, 10:14 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald has the interest of general manager Trent Baalke thanks to his blocking abilities and his averaging 17.4 yards per catch this season.

Footballguys view: Since Week 9, McDonald has been a top-10 fantasy tight end in PPR leagues. As QB Colin Kaepernick continues to put up good fantasy numbers, McDonald should keep trending up.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick surging on the ground    Tue Nov 29, 06:01 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is averaging 62.2 yards per game on the ground. In total, Kaepernick has 373 rushing yards on 46 attempts, including one touchdown. 'He's out there, he's in control and when he sees an opportunity he's taken advantage of it,' offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners aren't looking at the 49ers losing with Kaepernick at the helm, they're staring at the big numbers he's posting on a weekly basis. Pick him up off the waiver wire if you can. In addition to his rushing success, Kaepernick is averaging 277.5 yards per game through the air with eight touchdowns and just two interceptions.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has 1,110 passing yards and eight touchdowns on 145 passing attempts over his last four games, and all of which are the highest four-game totals of his career.

Footballguys view: The 49ers aren't winning, but "Ws" don't matter to fantasy owners. Kaepernick has QB1 upside every week and he makes for a great streaming option.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald caught a team-high 60 receiving yards on four receptions in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde productive    Sun Nov 27, 05:05 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 65 yards and caught five passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Hyde ran strong and was able to put up an RB1 week despite the fact that the 49ers played from behind for the whole game. Next week against New England brings a similar game script, but Hyde is looking too good to bench as your RB2.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 29-for-46 passing for 296 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He rushed a game-high 113 yards on 10 carries.

Footballguys view: Kaepernick will be one of the huge hits of Week 12. He has top 10 finishes in three of the last four weeks an d has been a high floor option in the rest of his starts. He's a bonafide QB1 against Chicago next week.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde the main focus    Tue Nov 22, 09:11 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde is the main focal point of the offense, according to head coach Chip Kelly. 'It's just overall the way our team is built,' Kelly said. 'We're built to run the football. Carlos is the main focus of what we're doing offensively.'

Footballguys view: Hyde is the centerpiece of the offense, largely because he's the best player on that side of the ball. He is running hard, but the rest of the team doesn't always put Hyde in the position to keep getting fed the rock. Hyde can produce as a receiver out of the backfield, so getting 100 or more all-purpose yards (like he did in Week 11) isn't out of the question on a weekly basis. That puts him firmly in RB2 territory regardless of the matchup.
