ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a torn UCL along with a fracture in his right thumb. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls the latter injury a "chipped bone" and adds that Garoppolo is "going to try to gut it out, somehow" vs. the Texans on Sunday. We'll see how this week goes, but for now, we're expecting QB Trey Lance to get the Week 17 start. Lance's rushing ability gives him fantasy upside -- but he'd be a downgrade for Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He got Wednesday off but put in a limited practice on Thursday and a full practice on Friday. Keep Kittle glued into fantasy lineups for this weekend’s game vs. the Falcons.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he's on track to play vs. the Falcons this weekend, despite sitting out on Wednesday with what HC Kyle Shanahan called "knee soreness." We'll update Kittle's status again on Friday afternoon.

49ers TE George Kittle was held out of Wednesday's practice with what HC Kyle Shanahan called "knee soreness." Shanahan didn't sound concerned, according to insider Kate Rooney, adding that he's looking to get Kittle a little extra rest with a Thursday night game coming in Week 16. Fantasy owners can keep Kittle penciled into starting lineups for now. We'll keep an eye on him over the next few days.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. He's expected to miss 1-2 weeks, so we'll see if he can make it back for next weekend's game in Cincinnati. WR Brandon Aiyuk and TE George Kittle should dominate Niners targets with Samuel out.

3:00pm EST 11/7/21

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. He’s been out since Week 4. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Kittle is slated to play “roughly half the game.” We’re expecting him to be out there for most passing plays, though, and would feel comfortable getting Kittle into Week 9 fantasy lineups.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) is expected to play today but will be on a "pitch count," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The plan is for Kittle to play "roughly half the game," Schefter adds. For perspective, Kittle played between 92-100% of San Francisco's offensive snaps in the first 4 games. Still, we'd expect him to be on the field for most, if not all, of the obvious passing situations. Consider him a lower-end TE1 with upside for Week 9.

The 49ers have activated TE George Kittle (calf) from IR, which should be the last step to him returning for Sunday's game against Arizona. HC Kyle Shanahan indicated earlier this week he didn't expect significant limitations to Kittle's role upon his return.

49ers insider Matt Maiocco confirms that TE George Kittle (calf) will be activated on Saturday and is on track to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday. Kittle carries some added risk in his 1st action since Week 4. And Arizona ranks 2nd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs. But Kittle is still a rock-solid TE1 with plenty of upside.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) was designated to return from IR. He'll get back on the practice field this week and has a chance to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday. We'll monitor his status over the next few days.

3:45pm EDT 10/16/21

The 49ers have placed TE George Kittle on IR for the calf injury that already had him doubtful against the Cardinals. With a Week 6 bye mixed in, Kittle now can’t return until Week 9 at the earliest. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Sam Francisco expects him to be ready then. We’ll see whether any Niners TE becomes fantasy viable in his absence. No Kittle should leave more target share for the WRs, though

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. It’s a surprise after he played through the calf injury last week. The ‘Niners are holding out some hope that he’ll be able to play, but Kittle should be on fantasy benches for now. Ross Dwelley is San Francisco's backup TE.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) missed practice again on Thursday. He was in the same boat at this time last week before putting in a limited practice on Friday and then playing his usual role on Sunday. We're fully expecting him to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. Kittle, of course, got in just 1 limited practice last week before playing 92% of the snaps in the loss to Seattle. Kittle should be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals.

2:37pm EDT 10/3/21

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision. Kittle obviously carries elevated risk in Week 4 fantasy lineups -- but we’d still be using him if you waited on him.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers TE George Kittle (calf) will play vs. the Seahawks today. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is a little more guarded, reporting that Kittle is still a game-time decision but that there's "optimism" that he'll play. Niners-Hawks doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET today, but Kittle can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Kittle said Friday that he's "feeling good" but wouldn't commit to being available on Sunday. HC Kyle Shanahan, meanwhile, said he'd have a better idea of Kittle's status on Saturday. We'll continue to keep you updated on the situation.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan didn't sound so optimistic Friday morning when asked about whether TE George Kittle will be able to play through his calf injury this week. He told KNBR radio: "I hope so. It's not guaranteed. We were hoping it would heal a little more." We'll see about his status come Sunday, but make sure you have an alternate plan available.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. The team hasn't expressed much concern about his status for this weekend's game vs. Seattle, but we've certainly got our eye on the situation. We'll see if Kittle practices Friday -- and then how he's listed on the final injury report.

49ers TE George Kittle (calf) missed Wednesday's practice. HC Kyle Shanahan said Kittle's calf is sore but that he "should be ok" for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. We'll get another update on Kittle's status tomorrow.
