Jets RB Tevin Coleman has been placed on the COVID list, making him unlikely to play vs. the Bucs on Sunday. Coleman has tallied 8 and 14 carries, respectively, the past 2 weeks alongside RB Michael Carter, so Coleman's absence would be a boost to Carter's Week 17 fantasy stock.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It looks like he has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Texans. We'll get another update on Mitchell tomorrow.

49ers RB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) did not practice on Wednesday. The 'Niners are still holding out hope that he'll be able to play vs. the Texans this weekend, but we're tentatively expecting QB Trey Lance to get the nod.

The Jets on Monday placed TE Tyler Kroft on the COVID list. This likely doesn't affect many fantasy rosters, but it's a little more noteworthy after Kroft saw a season high in playing time Sunday against the Jaguars and drew 5 targets.

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.

Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo sat out Monday's practice with a right thumb injury he's believed to have sustained early in Thursday night's game at Tennessee, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury. Garoppolo completed that game, so we'll see whether this issue affects his Week 17 status or if the team is just opening a long practice week in cautious fashion.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that it's thought to be "a more significant injury" than a right thumb sprain. We'll see how this week goes for him.

Niners LB Azeez Al-Shaair is active for tonight's game against the Titans. Use him as planned, which is LB3 territory in our Week 16 IDP rankings.

Niners LB Azeez Al-Shaair is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Titans with the elbow injury that kept him our of Sunday's game. He put in limited practices all 3 days this week. We'll see about his status Thursday evening.

The 49ers have ruled RB Elijah Mitchell out for Thursday night's game at Tennessee with his knee injury. Jeff Wilson Jr. dominated backfield work in Sunday's win over Atlanta, with Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo the only 2 other Niners to handle more than 1 carry.

49ers GM John Lynch said Tuesday morning that RB Elijah Mitchell will be a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Titans. Mitchell is out of concussion protocol, and his knee has "taken a positive turn," Lynch said. We'll see what Mitchell does in practice today and tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report. A healthy Mitchell has been a workhorse for the 'Niners this season.

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.

Niners LB Azeez Al-Shaair is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons with the elbow injury he suffered last week. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles is the next guy up behind him, but Marcell Harris figures to be the #2 LB in playing time Sunday behind Fred Warner.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that it’s swelling in Mitchell’s knee, and not the concussion, that’s keeping him out. Jeff Wilson will get another game as San Francisco’s lead back. He’s been disappointing in 2 spot starts this season but at least has a plus matchup this weekend against Atlanta’s 27th-ranked RB defense.

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 RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. It's unclear if it's the concussion, knee or both that's keeping him off the practice field. Regardless, he's iffy for this weekend's game vs. Atlanta. Check back tomorrow for another update.

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.

Niners LB Azeez Al-Shaair left Sunday's win over the Bengals with an elbow injury. He'll have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the damage, according to multiple reports.

2:59pm EST 12/12/21

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday after missing last week’s game, so he obviously comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups. But we also haven’t heard anything about Samuel being limited today. There’s still WR1 upside here.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) "will play" vs. the Bengals this afternoon, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter notably went with "will play," rather than "expected to play," so we feel confident that Samuel will be active later this afternoon. He still carries added risk after getting in just a limited practice on Friday with the groin injury. But Samuel would be tough to keep on fantasy benches considering how productive he's been all season.

The 49ers have placed CB Emmanuel Moseley on IR with an ankle injury. That knocks him out until at least Week 17. With CB Dontae Johnson ruled out for a personal reason, San Francisco heads into today's matchup with the Bengals missing 2 starting corners. That can only enhance the matchup for Bengals WRs Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.
