Update: Samuel returned midway through the 4th quarter.

2:11pm EST 11/17/19

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. Chase McLaughlin kicks again for the ‘Niners.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. TE Ross Dwelley ran a route on 84% of QB Jimmy Garoppolo's drop backs and garnered 7 targets with Kittle out last week. He's on the spot-start radar in today’s plus matchup.

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Chase McLaughlin will kick again for the ‘Niners. He connected on 3 of 4 FG attempts in last week’s loss to the Seahawks and is a viable Week 11 fantasy play with San Francisco sporting a big 27.5-point implied total.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Fantasy owners should obviously plan on being without him this week. Kittle’s absence leaves Ross Dwelley as San Francisco’s likely pass-catching TE. He’s a fantasy flier in this plus matchup vs. Arizona’s league-worst TE defense.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that TE George Kittle (knee) won't play against the Cardinals this weekend. He misses a golden matchup -- and the early rule-out suggests that Kittle might miss time beyond Week 11. With Kittle sidelined last week, TE Ross Dwelley ran a route on 84% of QB Jimmy Garoppolo's drop backs and garnered 7 targets. He's on the spot-start radar in this week's plus matchup.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan has been non-committal on his availability for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. Check back tomorrow for another update -- but start lining up a backup plan for Week 11 fantasy lineups.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is inactive, as expected, for tonight's game against the Seahawks. Ross Dwelley is the best fantasy bet among 'Niners TEs but is just a cheap flier in DFS games.

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) is listed as doubtful for Week 10. Chase McLaughlin will kick for the 'Niners against the Seahawks on Monday night.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. Fantasy owners need to find a replacement. Ross Dwelley figures to step in as San Francisco's lead pass-catching TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Niners TE George Kittle's status is "in doubt" for Monday night's game against the Seahawks, according to NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco. Kittle is dealing with knee and ankle injuries that kept him out of Thursday and Friday practices. The fact that he couldn't practice after the long layoff doesn't bode well. Make sure you have an insurance policy as we await Kittle's game status on Saturday.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan was non-committal on TE George Kittle's availability for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. “I mean there’s issues,” Shanny said. “He’s got things in his knee and ankle so we’ll see.” Kittle didn't practice on Thursday. We'll get a couple more practice updates over the next 2 days and will hopefully have a good idea of his status by Sunday morning. Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister is a decent fallback plan if you wait on Kittle and he ends up inactive.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) won't practice on Thursday, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Kittle played through this injuries last Thursday night, but Shanny said the team won't know his status for Monday night's game against the Seahawks until the end of the week. We'll continue to keep a close eye on this.

49ers K Robbie Gould is dealing with a quad injury and is "very much in doubt" for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. San Francisco has signed Chase McLaughlin, who will kick vs. Seattle if Gould can't. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but try to avoid it in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. There’s some risk after he missed last week, but he also carries significant sack upside against Atlanta. CB Tre Flowers (neck) and S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) are inactive for the game. S Bradley McDougald (back) is active but isn’t a strong IDP option.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Panthers — but his role is completely uncertain after the addition of WR Emmanuel Sanders.

The Patriots have traded a 2nd-round pick to the Falcons in exchange for WR Mohamed Sanu. New England tried to acquire Sanu during this spring's draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so it's clearly a player the team covets. Sanu was a steady producer in Atlanta, averaging 4.2 catches and 47 yards per game over the past 3+ seasons. He played primarily in the slot for the Falcons, but we'll see how he fits into the Patriots' WR corps alongside Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon (once he's back from his knee injury), Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers. When everyone's healthy, it figures to be Edelman, Gordon and Sanu in 3-WR sets. Sanu has a brand new offense to learn, though. And note that he's going from the league's 2nd pass-heaviest offense to its 14th run-heaviest. Sanu is worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but won't be a recommended Week 8 starter. The Falcons, meanwhile, figures to roll with either Justin Hardy or Russell Gage as the #3 WR. But Sanu's departure will mostly just free up extra targets for Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. That leaves Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin as San Francisco’s top 2 WRs. Pettis’ usage has been trending up, but he remains just a WR4 flier for now.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury. We hadn't seen any previous reports of the ailment, but that might explain his significant decrease in playing time against the Browns. Ansah doesn't look like a good IDP bet against Baltimore -- even if he shows up active.

3:10pm EDT 10/13/19

Dolphins QB Josh Rosen was benched in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Redskins after completing 15 of 25 passes for 85 scoreless yards and 2 INTs. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is in the game for Miami. We'll see who they go with in Week 7 in Buffalo -- but continue to stay far, far away from the situation in fantasy football.
