  49ers | Not interested in trading Alex Boone    Wed Aug 20, 06:01 PM

The San Francisco 49ers are not interested in trading OT Alex Boone, even though teams have inquired about him.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are a very disciplined organization. They don't give extensions or raises to players who holdout and trading a holdout would be seen a reward tantamount to giving in.

  49ers | Frank Gore not thinking about extension    Wed Aug 20, 05:01 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore said he is playing for a Super Bowl in 2014 and is not thinking about a contract extension. "This year I'm playing for a Super Bowl. I'm not even thinking about an extension," Gore said.

Footballguys view: Gore hasn't really showed signs of an imminent dropoff and he is still the lead back on a winning team that loves to run the ball. He's a value as an RB2 you can get in the 5th round or later because of his low weekly ceiling.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree didn't feel 100 percent in 2013    Wed Aug 20, 02:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree said he did not feel like himself when he returned from offseason Achilles' tendon surgery last season. 'I was fast enough to be on the field,' Crabtree said. 'But I wasn't me.' Crabtree looked like a No. 1 receiver this offseason before he suffered a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: That was to be expected, as Crabtree's injury happened late enough in the year that it wasn't even a sure thing that he'd play last year. The hardest part of Crabtree's valuation this year is weighing him being back in top form vs being in a run-first offense with three other viable targets.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree extension before season?    Tue Aug 19, 07:51 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree's contract extension talks are reportedly progressing. The team hopes a deal can get done before the regular season begins.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is coming off of an injury-shortened year and the 49ers pass offense isn't exactly the place to put up eye-popping stats, but the 49ers are also a very financially disciplined organization. He is likely to get more on the open market.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick played through foot injuries    Tue Aug 19, 11:36 AM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said his left foot sustained a bone chip on the forefoot and a ruptured capsule on the ball in Week 2 of last season. In the following four games, he averaged fewer than 16 rushing yards per contest. The Niners tried to reduce risk for him any way possible until he was at full strength. His production on the ground increased as he healed, and San Francisco allowed him to do designed runs in the postseason.

Footballguys view: This means Kaepernick has both rushing and passing upside this year. He's a fine QB1 if you can get him as the 10th off of the board or later, and he could threaten the top five this season with the best WR corps of his career around him in San Francisco.

  49ers | Josh X. Johnson may be No. 2 QB    Tue Aug 19, 04:48 AM

After another poor outing by San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert, sources indicate there has been some talk about QB Josh X. Johnson being moved to the No. 2 slot behind QB Colin Kaepernick.

Footballguys view: Even Jim Harbaugh can't find some useful play in Gabbert's game. This is a good indication that no matter how physically talented a QB is, they won't make it even as a backup without some gumption.

  49ers | Lack of turnovers will determine backup QB    Sun Aug 17, 08:54 PM

The San Francisco 49ers will determine their backup quarterback by which candidate does not turn the ball over, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. QBs Blaine Gabbert and McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw interceptions during the second preseason game, while QB Josh X. Johnson lost a fumble.

  49ers | Not looking for other QB options    Sun Aug 17, 07:34 PM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said the team isn't looking for backup quarterbacks outside of the organization. QBs Blaine Gabbert and Josh X. Johnson are competing for the role.

Footballguys view: Gabbert has been terrible in the preseason, and Johnson has been below adequate as a passer during his pro career. The 49ers need to pray Colin Kaepernick plays sixteen games.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree practices in full    Sun Aug 17, 02:27 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (hamstring) practiced in full for the first time Friday, Aug. 15. Crabtree was 230 pounds last season when he returned from a torn Achilles', but he is at 215 in this camp.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is ready to play some of the best football in his career, but the 49ers crowded passing game - which is not one of the prolific attacks in the league - might keep him from being more than a WR2 and introduce more variance to his week-to-week production.

  49ers | LaMichael James out of brace    Sat Aug 16, 12:14 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) is no longer wearing a brace on his dislocated elbow and believes he is ready to play.

He will not play in the second preseason game but believes he can play in the final two preseason games.

San Francisco 49ers DE Justin Smith (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 13. It was Smith's first practice of training camp after offseason shoulder surgery.

Footballguys view: Smith is as crucial as ever to a defense that will likely be without Navorro Bowman and Aldon Smith for most of the first half of the season. His return is welcome news for San Francisco.

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) went through a full practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, for the first time since he dislocated his left elbow July 27. He was wearing a non-contact jersey.

Footballguys view: We're unsure if James is going to play on Sunday against the Broncos. If he's in a non-contact jersey, we would be surprised to see him in action this week.

  49ers | Alex Boone catching interest?    Sat Aug 9, 01:40 PM

San Francisco 49ers OG Alex Boone will reportedly draw trade interest from several teams as he maintains is holdout for a new contract.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are one of the most, if not the most fiscally disciplined team in the league. Boone will not get a penny out of them while he is not in camp. The 49ers offensive line has been falling off of its formerly dominant form, and trading away Boone would not help that matter.

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde ran five times for 39 yards and showed off his skillset in the team's first preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 7. Hyde is expected to have a big role in the offense this year behind RB Frank Gore with RBs Kendall Hunter (knee) and LaMichael James (elbow) injured.

Footballguys view: Hyde is an intriguing rookie back to watch this preseason. He's big, physical and can impress with build-up speed. Hyde is likely to win the primary backup job behind Gore. His current ADP is RB41 (9.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.
