49ers QB Brock Purdy (concussion) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He cleared the protocol on Saturday after putting in a full practice on Friday. Purdy is safe to use in fantasy lineups as you normally would.

Packers LB De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings. It'll be his first action since suffering the injury back in Week 3. Campbell carries some risk but also plenty of upside for IDP lineups. CB Jaire Alexander (back) is also active.

QB Brock Purdy has cleared the concussion protocol and will start Sunday for the 49ers against the Bengals. We’ve been expecting this outcome and switched from Sam Darnold to Purdy in our Week 8 rankings on Friday

Packers LB De'Vondre Campbell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Campbell has been out since Week 3 with a sprained ankle but put in three limited practices this week for the first time since his initial injury. We'll check his status Sunday.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. He went from no practice on Wednesday to a limited practice on Thursday to full participation on Friday. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that Purdy has just one more stage of the concussion protocol to pass through. He now looks likely to play on Sunday. We'll continue to keep you updated on his status.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bengals. We’ll see if he’s ready to return after San Francisco’s Week 9 bye. Jauan Jennings should operate as the 49ers’ No. 2 WR again this weekend but would be a desperation fantasy play.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's made some progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. But, as of now, we'd still consider QB Sam Darnold more likely to start that one.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. If playing 100% of the snaps in Monday night's game vs. the Vikings wasn't telling, here's more confirmation that the oblique isn't a concern going forward.

Niners QB Brock Purdy has entered the league concussion protocol. The Athletic's Matt Barrows reports that Purdy began showing symptoms on the flight back from the Monday night loss at Minnesota. The timing obviously puts Purdy's status in question for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Sam Darnold would be in line to start if Purdy can't go. We'll track the situation throughout the week.

49ers TE George Kittle hauled 5 of 7 targets for a team-leading 78 receiving yards in Week 7’s loss vs. the Vikings. Consistent fantasy production from the veteran has been hard to come by this season, but Kittle stepped up to the plate well in the absence of his teammate WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder). WR Brandon Aiyuk also broke double-digit PPR points on Monday night, logging 5 catches for 57 yards. Both Kittle and Aiyuk will be quality starting options in Week 8 vs. the Bengals.

Fantasy managers who trusted 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) in their lineups in Week 7 were rewarded with a pair of TDs vs. the Vikings. The veteran RB recorded 15 carries for 45 rushing yards to go along with 3 catches for 51 yards as a pass-catcher in the contest. Always remember: if CMC is healthy enough to play, you start him in your lineup. Next week, McCaffrey will take on the Bengals.

49ers QB Brock Purdy completed 21 of 30 passes for 272 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs in Week 7’s loss vs. the Vikings. The second-year starter has hit a skid of late. After starting the season with five weeks of turnover-free football, Purdy has thrown 3 INTs in his last two games and now sits as the QB16 in fantasy points per game in 2023. He’ll still be a respectable starter in 2QB/superflex formats, but we’ll be less enthusiastic to roll out Purdy in 1QB formats this coming week against the Bengals.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) is active for tonight's game vs. the Vikings. He got in just one limited practice this week and didn't take a hit, ESPN's Adam Schefter said on The Pat McAfee Show earlier today. There's elevated risk with CMC tonight, although there's been no report on his snaps being limited. RB Ty Davis-Price is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason behind McCaffrey.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) is expected to play vs. the Vikings tonight. We'll look for any word on limitations for McCaffrey in that one and will get San Francisco's inactives around 7 pm ET.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets, "All signs point to 49ers’ RB Christian McCaffrey playing Monday night at Minnesota ... McCaffrey returned to practice in a limited way Saturday and said after that he feels “great.” Barring another update between now and the 1 pm ET kickoffs, we'd have McCaffrey starting in the vast majority of fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) "has a shot" to play vs. the Vikings on Monday night. CMC got in a limited practice on Saturday and is officially questionable. There have been no solid reports on his status. Hopefully we'll get one before the 1 pm ET games kick off.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw (hamstring) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Vikings. Greenlaw managed limited practices Friday and Saturday after sitting out Thursday. He missed the Week 6 loss to the Browns. The late kickoff makes it tough to wait on Greenlaw, and we've knocked him down the Week 7 LB rankings to present more options who are playing earlier. If you'd like to -- or need to -- wait for Greenlaw, try to secure LB Oren Burks as insurance. He played every snap against the Browns last week.

Niners RB Christian McCaffrey put in a limited practice Saturday, his first action this week coming off the oblique injury. He's questionable for Monday night's game aginst the Vikings. We'll watch for any indications on whether he'll play before the Sunday games begin, but you might have to guess on McCaffrey's status until Monday. Make sure you have an insurance option available if you plan to wait on the 49er.

HC Kyle Shanahan told reporters Saturday that 49ers WR Deebo Samuel will miss at least two games with a hairline fracture in his injured shoulder. The team's bye follows that. We'll see whether he's ready to return for Week 10. Samuel's absence these next two weeks should help the target counts for WR Brandon Aiyuk and TE George Kittle. Jauan Jennings stands next in line among WRs and could sneak into some deep value.
