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.

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.

Washington CB Josh Norman (thigh) is inactive for today's game against the 49ers. Norman hasn't played very well this year, so his absence doesn't significantly alter the matchup. But it can only help the outlook for WR Dante Pettis.

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.

2:10pm EDT 10/13/19

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He popped up on the injury report on Friday, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that there's "some concern about whether [Kittle] will be able to finish the game.” There’s obviously increased risk here, but Kittle still sits 4th in our Week 6 TE Rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers TE George Kittle is expected to play today against the Rams, "barring a setback." Rapoport adds that Kittle "may workout pregame to test it, but the plan is to play." Kittle was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring issue. The situation certainly adds risk to his Week 6 outlook and damages his DFS profile. But an active Kittle will almost certainly start in your season-long lineup.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that there's "some concern about whether [Kittle] will be able to finish the game." He remains a top-5 play in season-long leagues but now looks like a tournament-only option in DFS.

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. But HC Kyle Shanahan said afterwards that he expects Kittle to be available for Sunday's game. It's a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, but we'll look for an update on Kittle's status in the morning. You can keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Niners DE Dee Ford is active for tonight's game against the Browns. He made it onto the field for just 1 limited practice this week while dealing with a quad injury and has been hampered by multiple issues all season. S Jimmie Ward is also active for the 1st time this season. We'll see whether he takes the FS job back from Tarvarius Moore.

Niners DE Nick Bosa, DE Dee Ford and S Jaquiski Tartt are active for today's game against the Steelers. All entered the day questionable and are low-level IDP options at best. Ford, in particular, has been struggling through his return from a preseason knee sprain and should not be in fantasy football lineups. DB Jimmie Ward, meanwhile, is inactive once again. That keeps Tarvarius Moore in play for deep IDP leagues.

Niners DE Nick Bosa (ankle), S Jaquiski Tartt (toe) and DE Dee Ford (quad) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Bosa put in limited practices all week, which was better than last week. Then, he sat out Wednesday and Thursday before returning Friday and then playing through a "questionable" tag. We'd bet on him playing Sunday, though it's still a good spot to keep him out of IDP lineups. Tartt missed Wednesday's practice before returning to limited workouts the next 2 days. Ford missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices before a limited Friday. He's listed with a quad injury but has been struggling to get over a preseason knee injury. He's a definite sit for IDP owners even if active. We'll check the status of all 3 Sunday afternoon, but the late start combined with their situations means you should try to look elsewhere for fantasy options.

Niners DE Nick Bosa (ankle) is active for today's game against the Bengals. He had some soreness in his previously sprained ankle coming out of Week 1 and got some rest from practice during the week. But Bosa also graded out tops among all edge players in Pro Football Focus' pass-rushing productivity in Week 1. He's worth the risk against a Bengals offense that looks weak in pass protection.
