Dante Pettis Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

49ers WR Dante Pettis told reporters Friday that his "body's back to normal" after battling a groin injury. He added that he expects to play more than the 2 snaps he did in the opener. We'll need to see Pettis' role grow -- and grow significantly -- before considering him for fantasy lineups.

49ers WR Dante Pettis played just 2 snaps in Sunday's win over the Bucs. HC Kyle Shanahan said afterward that Pettis' groin injury was at least partly to blame. "He had health issues," Shanahan said. "That's why he missed a week of practice. He just got cleared to come back on Monday, so he was a little behind the 8 ball on that. But he didn't start the game, and we didn't have a ton of long drives where we got into the substitution flow." Pettis, of course, had a rough August and put in full practices last Thursday and Friday. So we're not ready to say the groin was the only reason for the limited playing time. Pettis is still worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but can't be trusted in Week 2 lineups.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. WRs Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) are both out for this weekend’s opener against the Bucs. Marquise Goodwin is expected to serve as the #2 WR, with Kendrick Bourne, Deebo Samuel and Richie James filling spots 3 through 5.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's good to go for this weekend's plus matchup against the Bucs.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Despite an uneven August, he's listed as a starter on San Francisco's latest depth chart and remains the best fantasy bet in the WR corps. He has a plus Week 1 draw against the Bucs but should be considered a risk/reward WR3, especially with the groin issue.

49ers WR Dante Pettis is "having a rough camp," according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Grant Cohn. Pettis was replaced in the starting lineup in Tuesday's practice by WR Kendrick Bourne. We're guessing that's not a permanent move, but it also sounds like San Francisco's WR pecking order remains extremely fluid at this point. It'll be a situation to monitor closely in preseason action.

The 49ers have elected not to pick up the 2019 option on WR Pierre Garcon's contract. That's not a surprising move given Garcon's tumble over the past 2 seasons. He missed 8 games apiece in 2017 and 2018 and posted his 2 smallest catch totals (40 and 24) since his 2008 rookie campaign. The 32-year-old looks done as a fantasy factor -- and perhaps as an NFL player. His departure leaves opportunity for younger members of the Niners' WR corps: Dante Pettis, Richie James and Trent Taylor.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said WR Dante Pettis suffered an MCL injury in Sunday's loss to the Bears. He'll miss the finale but won't need surgery, so his offseason shouldn't be impacted. The rookie came on strong down the stretch, tallying 24 catches for 371 yards and 4 TDs in his final 6 games. We'll see what the 'Niners add to the WR room this offseason, but Pettis should be a big part of the passing attack going forward. He's a strong dynasty hold.

49ers WR Dante Pettis suffered a knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears and is questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Pettis has been ruled out. WR Marquise Goodwin has taken the rookie's spot in the starting lineup.

49ers WRs Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) are active for today’s game against the Seahawks. We’re not expecting either guy to be limited by his injury. Pettis is a WR3 with upside. Goodwin can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups after playing just 33% of the snaps last week.

49ers WRs WR Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) are expected to play against the Seahawks today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Both guys were limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, but we never heard any concern about their statuses. Pettis has scored 4 times in his last 3 games and is a WR3 with upside today. Goodwin isn't a recommended fantasy option after playing just 33% of the offensive snaps last week.

49ers WRs Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) are questionable for this weekend’s game against the Seahawks.

We won’t get San Francisco’s official inactives until 2:35 pm ET.

49ers WRs Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) were added to the injury report on Thursday and limited in practice. The fact that both guys popped up here suggests this was more of a rest day. We'll know more about the situation after Friday's practice.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Marquise Goodwin is set to return from his 2-game absence and will join Dante Pettis as a top-2 WR for the ‘Niners.
