49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) won't play against the Seahawks this weekend and will "probably" miss the following Thursday night's game vs. the Packers. It's worth noting that San Francisco has a Week 11 bye, so it's possible Samuel is held out of Week 10, too. His absence will leave rookie Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne as the 49ers' top 2 WRs. That's especially important with Seattle's league-worst WR defense on tap.

9:10pm EDT 10/26/20

The 49ers placed RB Jeff Wilson on IR with his high-ankle sprain. He's out for at least the next 3 games. RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) is out for at least 2 more games, while RB Tevin Coleman (knee) remains iffy for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks. San Francisco might be down to RBs JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon for that one. Hasty should be owned in pretty much all fantasy leagues at this point.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury reports that 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Patriots. We'll see about the expected return timeline, but this likely makes Wilson a drop in nearly all redraft leagues. RB Tevin Coleman should return soon and faces big opportunity when he does make it back. If Coleman's not ready for Week 8, then rookie JaMycal Hasty figures to see an uptick in work. He logged 9 carries each of the past 2 weeks.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel left Sunday's game at New England with a hamstring injury and did not return. We'll watch for updates on his status heading into Week 8.

Update: It's a hamstring strain, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury. The team expects Samuel to miss at least Week 8 against Seattle. We'll see beyond that.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson suffered a lower left leg injury at the end of his 3rd TD run in Sunday's game against the Patriots. He got off the field under his own power but was carted to the locker room. We'll update Wilson's status when we know more.

Update: Wilson has an ankle injury and has been ruled out.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He joins Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in a backfield missing Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman. McKinnon is the best fantasy bet today, but this could be a “hot-hand” situation.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is expected to play against the Patriots today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He'll join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in San Francisco's backfield. Wilson isn't a bankable fantasy play but could handle goal-line work for the 'Niners today.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots after a limited week of practice. With Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman out, Wilson’s absence would leave San Francisco with only RBs Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is inactive for tonight's game against the Rams. He played 23% of the offensive snaps and handled 4 carries with 1 target last week, so his absence opens up a little more work for RBs Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon.

Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. He finished the week with 2 full practices, though, and looks on track to play. We'll confirm Moseley's status Sunday.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will start Sunday night’s game against the Rams, HC Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. Garoppolo reportedly had a good week of practice after his disastrous half vs. the Dolphins. Make Garoppolo earn his way back into your fantasy lineup after that dud.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said he pulled QB Jimmy Garoppolo from this past week's game against Miami because his injured ankle was impacting his play. Shanny wouldn't say whether Garoppolo will be able to start this weekend's game vs. the Rams. "We'll see how he is on Wednesday," Shanahan said. "I expect him to be at least the same, if not better. So, hopefully we can get a week of that and have no setbacks (on) Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And hopefully we get him out there Sunday night." We'll track Garoppolo's status, but plan on avoiding the 49ers QB situation in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against Miami. He was horrible in the first 30 minutes, completing just 7 of 17 passes for 77 yards and 2 INTs. QB C.J. Beathard replaced Garoppolo. We're assuming the 'Niners will go back to Garoppolo next week, but we'll see what HC Kyle Shanahan says.

2:10pm EDT 10/11/20

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (illness) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. We’re expecting him to play more than the 34% of snaps he did last week, although he still might not be ready for a full workload. Consider Samuel a WR3 in today’s plus matchup.

The 49ers have ruled CB Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), CB Dontae Johnson (groin) and CB K'Waun Williams (knee, hip) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is also questionable. He missed last week's game against the Eagles but managed limited workouts this week. We'll check on Witherspoon's status Sunday, though he's not much of an IDP factor either way. The big takeaway here is that the Niners will miss at least 4 of their top 6 corners -- with Richard Sherman still on IR. That can only help Miami QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins after missing practice on Thursday and Friday with a non-COVID illness. Guys almost always play through this stuff, but we’ll look for an update on Samuel on Sunday morning.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Garoppolo is a significant upgrade for San Francisco's pass-catchers and is a high-upside QB2 in this matchup. The 'Niners are implied for 29.25 points -- 6th highest on the week.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo put in a limited practice on Wednesday, his 1st since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 2. It gives him a chance to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. We'll see how Garoppolo trends over the next couple of days.

The 49ers have ruled CB Emmanuel Moseley out for Sunday night's game against the Eagles with a concussion. The team has also ruled CB Ahkello Witherspoon out (hamstring) and deemed slot CB K'Waun Williams questionable. With Richard Sherman already out, San Francisco will be missing at least 3 of its top 4 corners for the game. The question, of course, is whether the banged-up Philly offense can exploit that weakness.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles and is back to must-start status in fantasy.
