  49ers | George Kittle practices in full    Thu Oct 19, 07:19 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (back, elbow) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Footballguys view: Kittle is an interesting TE streamer in deeper leagues. He's been doing some good things for the 49ers, and he's got chemistry with fellow rookie C.J. Beathard (new starting quarterback) from their days in college at Iowa.

  49ers | George Kittle has full practice    Wed Oct 18, 07:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (back, elbow) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: Kittle was a college teammate of new starting quarterback C.J. Beathard, and he's been making some plays for the 49ers this year. In deeper leagues, Kittle can help you at the TE position.

  49ers | C.J. Beathard the starter    Mon Oct 16, 10:44 AM

San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard will be the starting quarterback moving forward, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Sunday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Brian Hoyer is now the backup behind the rookie. The 49ers aren't going anywhere no matter who lines up under center. Beathard has a good deep arm and throws with touch when going deep downfield. He's a good leader and is more athletic than some think, allowing him to make good plays on bootlegs that abound in the Shanahan system.

  49ers | Brian Hoyer benched    Sun Oct 15, 02:48 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer was benched during the team's Week 6 game and has been replaced by QB C.J. Beathard.

Footballguys view: Beathard has a college connection with tight end George Kittle. He could be a streaming option in deep leagues against the vulnerable Cowboys defense next week.

  49ers | Week 6 inactives for San Francisco    Sun Oct 15, 11:35 AM

The San Francisco 49ers have declared WR Kendrick Bourne, LB Reuben Foster, CB Leon Hall, FB Kyle Juszczyk, OL Erik Magnuson, FS Dexter McCoil, LB Dekoda Watson inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Foster was lobbying to get back on the field, but the team thought it would be wiser to give him one more week to recover from an ankle injury. Samaje Perine's matchup looks better in light of this news.

San Francisco 49ers LB Reuben Foster (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Washington Redskins. He was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Foster's return should be a boost to the run defense and overall energy of the 49ers defense.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde on the block?    Sat Oct 14, 10:46 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde has been mentioned in trade talks, according to a general manager, and the same general manager said the 49ers are open to trading any veteran player for the right price.

Footballguys view: If the team has clarity that Hyde doesn't fit in their future plans entering free agency next year, then they should try to recoup something for him. Matt Breida's value could take a leap soon, but it's unclear whether Hyde would benefit from a new destination because his potential new role is unclear and would depend on the team he went to.

  49ers | Week 6 injury report for 49ers    Fri Oct 13, 07:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 6. S Adrian Colbert (hamstring), LB Reuben Foster (ankle), FS Eric Reid (knee), LB Dekoda Watson (groin) and CB Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. LB Ray Ray Armstrong (shoulder), WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury), DT D.J. Jones (back), TE George Kittle (chest), DT Earl Mitchell (knee), OT Joe Staley (non-injury) and SS Jimmie Ward (shoulder) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Foster is chomping at the bit to get back on the field and the release of Navorro Bowman indicates that he'll be ready to go this week. Reid is close to a return from a knee injury to fill the Kam Chancellor box safety role in this defense. The return of both would bolster a sagging run defense.

  49ers | George Kittle should play    Fri Oct 13, 07:06 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Kittle has been coming on over the last two weeks (nine receptions), but last week against the Colts he had his breakout game with seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. He could continue this hot streak against a banged up Washington pass defense that has allowed the third most points this season to opposing tight ends.

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Washington CB Josh Norman (rib) has been ruled out for the game in Week 6. Garcon should have a more favorable matchup with Norman missing this contest. He's a WR2 for fantasy owners.

  49ers | NaVorro Bowman released    Fri Oct 13, 04:38 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman was released Friday, Oct. 13.

Footballguys view: Bowman was one of the 49ers best all-time linebackers, but the emergence of Ray Ray Armstrong and drafting of Reuben Foster combined with a switch to a 4-3 defense has made him expendable. Perhaps he could reunite with Vic Fangio in Chicago and help the Bears depleted inside linebacker corps.

  49ers | NaVorro Bowman on trade block    Fri Oct 13, 03:04 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman has been made available in a trade, and other teams have shown interest in acquiring him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The 49ers shot this down quickly, but it wouldn't be the first time a team denied trade talks publicly while trying to pull something off behind the scenes.

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

  49ers | George Kittle limited Thursday    Thu Oct 12, 07:19 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Kittle came in and became the main tight end during the game against Indianapolis, and we expect him to see more targets against Washington. It's a good matchup, and we think he could be a borderline TE1/TE2.

  49ers | San Francisco to use hot hand at RB    Mon Oct 9, 08:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde will be the first running back to play in games and will be followed by RB Matt Breida, then the team will use the hot hand approach for the rest of the game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep this in mind when considering Hyde for their lineups. He's the lead back, but we could see Breida on the field at key moments for the 49ers. We'll have to see how this plays out, but this news certainly puts a damper on Hyde's fantasy value on a weekly basis.
