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.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He missed the last 2 games and was limited in practice this week, so it’s unclear how big a role he’s ready for. It leaves Mostert as a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) and WR Deebo Samuel (illness) are expected to play against the Dolphins today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Mostert has been sidelined since Week 2 and was limited in practice all week, so it's unclear how big a role he's ready for. Samuel played just 34% of San Francisco's offensive snaps in his 2020 debut last week. He should be ready for more this afternoon -- although missing practice on Thursday and Friday with that illness might impact that plan.

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 RB Raheem Mostert (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. HC Kyle Shanahan suggested Friday that Mostert will be a game-time decision. That means we might not know his status until 3 pm ET on Sunday. Jerick McKinnon will be a high-end RB2 if Mostert remains out; a RB3/Flex play if Mostert suits up.

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 RB Raheem Mostert (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. When healthy, Mostert figures to be the lead back in a committee alongside Jerick McKinnon.

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 RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles. He didn’t practice all week and isn’t a lock to be back for Week 5. Jerick McKinnon figures to operate as San Francisco’s lead back vs. Philly, with Jeff Wilson also getting plenty of action.

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.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles. QB Nick Mullens gets another start and is on the radar in 2-QB and superflex leagues after chucking for 343 yards and a score last week.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (foot) will make his 2020 debut against the Eagles on Sunday night. "I know he’ll be out there but it won’t be his normal role, that’s for sure,” HC Kyle Shanahan said. Likely to be on some type of snap count, Samuel isn't a recommended Week 4 fantasy play. But scoop him up if he's available in your fantasy league.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That doesn't bode well for his chances to playing against the Eagles on Sunday night. With Mostert (and Tevin Coleman) out last week, Jerick McKinnon handled 14 carries and 4 targets to Jeff Wilson's 12 carries and 3 targets.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo remained sidelined on Wednesday. That's not a good start in his quest to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. QB Nick Mullens played well in Garoppolo's absence last week, completing 25 of 36 passes for 343 yards, 1 TD and 0 INTs.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is a "full go" for Wednesday's practice, HC Kyle Shanahan said. That puts Kittle on track to return for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. An active Kittle remains a must-start in fantasy.

Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley left Sunday's win over the Giants early with a concussion. We'll see whether he has a chance to make it back for the Week 4 Sunday night clash with the Eagles. Dontae Johnson took over Moseley's spot after he departed, finishing with 2 tackles and a pass breakup.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (foot) is expected to return to practice this coming week and then make his 2020 debut in Week 5 against the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Niners have wisely taken it slowly with Samuel's recovery from his Jones Fracture. If he can avoid a setback, he should quickly re-emerge as a weekly fantasy starter. He's worth grabbing now if he's available in your fantasy league.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Giants. He returned to limited practices this week, so we're betting on a Week 4 return. Jordan Reed, meanwhile, gets another game as San Francisco's lead TE after posting a 7-50-2 line last weekend. It's worth noting that he ran only 20 pass routes in that one, so his floor is lower than we'd like. Consider him a TE2 with upside for Week 3.
