Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Seahawks started recently signed RB Mike Davis in Monday night's loss to the Falcons, even with Eddie Lacy back from his groin injury. Davis carried 6 times for 18 yards and produced a pair of big gains on screen passes but then left in the 3rd quarter with a groin strain. According to the Seattle Times, Davis "thinks he'll be OK" but will have an MRI this week. If Davis proves ready for Sunday's visit to San Francisco, there could be some deep appeal for fantasy owners. The Niners present the league's best scoring matchup for RBs.

The Seahawks claimed RB Mike Davis off waivers from the 49ers on Monday. A 4th-round pick 2 years ago, Davis averaged just 2.0 yards per carry on 52 attempts and caught 10 of 18 targets over the past 2 seasons. He doesn't look like a good bet to make Seattle's roster, assuming Eddie Lacy's ankle is ready to go.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde tore his MCL in Sunday's game against the Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hyde will obviously miss the season finale and could be sidelined for 10-12 weeks. It might cost him part of the offseason program, but he should be ready in plenty of time for training camp. Hyde was impressive on a crappy 49ers offense this year, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, catching a career-high 27 passes and scoring 9 TDs. Durability continues to be a problem, though. Hyde has missed 14 games across his first 3 NFL seasons. He'll be a risk/reward early-round pick in 2017 fantasy football drafts. Shaun Draughn, DuJuan Harris and Mike Davis will handle backfield duties in Week 17. None will be a recommended fantasy starter against the Seahawks.

2:36pm EST 11/6/16

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Saints. He’s tentatively expected back for Week 10. RB DuJuan Harris is the best bet for carries today, with RB Mike Davis also mixing in. RB Shaun Draughn figures to handle most of the passing-down work.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it'd be a "major surprise" if 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) plays against the Saints today. "Needs another week to heal," Rapoport adds. It sounds like Hyde owners can expect him back for Week 10, but he's missing a prime matchup today. San Francisco will instead roll with a 3-man backfield of DuJuan Harris, Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis. Harris is the best bet for carries and is on the RB3 radar. Draughn figures to handle most of the passing-down work and is on the PPR radar.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints after a limited week of practice. We've yet to hear that he's been cleared for contact. 49ers-Saints doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but we'll look for an update on Sunday morning. If Hyde can't go, San Francisco would turn to a 3-man committee of DuJuan Harris, Shaun Draugh and Mike Davis. Harris would be the preferred fantasy play.

49ers HC Chip Kelly on Thursday described RB Carlos Hyde's (shoulder) Week 9 status as "TBD." Hyde remained in a non-contact jersey for Thursday's workout, and it sounds like he still hasn't been cleared for contact. We'll get another update on Hyde tomorrow, but fantasy owners should be making backup plans. His absence would again leave San Francisco with a 3-man committee backfield consisting of DuJuan Harris, Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. It sounds like he’ll be back after the team’s Week 8 bye. Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn will handle backfield duties this week, but the exact division of labor is unclear. Neither guy is a recommended fantasy play vs. a Tampa defense permitting just 3.7 yards per carry to RBs.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde told reporters on Wednesday that his shoulder injury is "definitely not long-term." He conceded that he's unlikely to be ready for this weekend's game against the Bucs but expects to be back after the Week 8 bye. RBs Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis figure to share backfield duties this Sunday. Neither is a reliable fantasy play.

49ers HC Chip Kelly on Wednesday called RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) "a stretch" to play against the Bucs this weekend. His absence would leave San Francisco with RBs Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis. The former is averaging 2.1 yards per carry this year after posting a 3.5 mark last season. The latter? 1.8 yards per carry this year, and 1.7 last. Tampa Bay comes into Week 7 allowing just 3.7 yards per carry to RBs. You don't want anything to do with a Hyde-less 49ers backfield.

The 49ers have activated RB Mike Davis (hand) from IR-designated-for-return.  He's been out since Week 8.  Davis averaged a tick below 1 yard per carry on 25 totes before breaking his hand.  He figures to share the backfield with DuJuan Harris and Kendall Gaskins against the Rams this weekend.  It's a situation to avoid in fantasy football.

The 49ers placed RB Mike Davis (hand) on IR designated to return.  He's not eligible to play until Week 17.  Drop the rookie if you had him stashed on your bench.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons.  We'll see if he can get back on the field after the Week 10 bye.  RB Mike Davis (hand) is also out, leaving Kendall Gaskins, Pierre Thomas and Shaun Draughn in San Francisco's backfield.  Avoid the situation in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

49ers RB Mike Davis fractured his hand in Sunday's loss to the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  No word on how long the rookie will be sidelined, but it'll likely be multiple weeks.  With Reggie Bush done with a torn ACL and Carlos Hyde dealing with a stress fracture in his foot, Kendall Gaskins is the only healthy RB on the roster.  San Francisco will make an addition this week.  We'll see if Hyde is able to play against the Falcons on Sunday.

49ers RB Mike Davis suffered a hand injury in the 2nd half and has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Rams.  San Francisco lost RB Reggie Bush earlier in the game, while RB Carlos Hyde is inactive.  Kendall Gaskins is the only RB left for the Niners.

49ers RB Reggie Bush injured his left leg on a punt return in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game.  He had to be carted off and won't return.  Already without RB Carlos Hyde, the Niners are now left with only RBs Mike Davis and Kendall Gaskins.

Update: Bush is questionable to return with a knee injury.

7:27pm EDT 10/30/15

The 49ers have ruled RB Carlos Hyde out for Sunday's game at St. Louis because of the stress fracture in his foot, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area. HC Jim Tomsula had announced Hyde as a game-time decision earlier Friday, but he and the other coaches reportedly met after practice and decided to have Hyde skip the trip. That leaves the Niners backfield to Reggie Bush, Mike Davis and Jarryd Hayne -- and even more worthy of avoiding in your fantasy football league.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Rams.  He's officially listed as questionable after not practicing all week.  Insider Matt Maiocco reports that Hyde is dealing with a stress fracture in his mid-foot area that will likely require surgery this offseason.  The 2-5 Niners would be wise to play it safe with 1 of their best offensive players.  Even if Hyde is active, he's not a recommended fantasy play vs. a stout Rams run defense.  If Hyde sits, RBs Mike Davis and Reggie Bush figure to share backfield duties.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde exited in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game with a head injury.  He'll be evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return.  Rookie Mike Davis is operating as San Francisco's lead back with Hyde out.

Update: Hyde passed his concussion test and has been cleared to return.

The 49ers will deploy a RB-by-committee this season, according to Joe Fann of the team's official website.  Fann wrote that in an article about RB Kendall Hunter's successful recovery from last year's torn ACL.  "Hunter will be a featured piece in that offensive scheme as one of the ball-carriers in the team’s running back by committee," Fann said. "He’ll likely split carries primarily with second-year back Carlos Hyde and veteran free-agent Reggie Bush."  The article makes no mention of RB Mike Davis, but the rookie could also earn a role at some point this season.  Hyde is still the clear favorite to lead this backfield in touches, but don't expect him to be a true workhorse.  He's overvalued at his mid-3rd-round PPR ADP.
