49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn't practice all week, so consider him uncertain for Week 3. HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that WR Dante Pettis will start in Goodwin’s place this weekend. The 2nd-round rookie is a flier in DFS and deeper season-long leagues.
49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. He's reportedly just dealing with a bruise but wasn't able to play through it in the opener. We'll see if he can get on the practice field on Thursday. Rookie WR Dante Pettis played 73% of San Francisco's offensive snaps with Goodwin sidelined for most of last week's game.
49ers WR Trent Taylor underwent what HC Kyle Shanahan called a "minor" back surgery earlier this offseason. Taylor has been sidelined since but is expected to be ready "at or near the beginning of training camp," per Shanny. Taylor hauled in 43 of 60 targets (71.7%) for 430 yards and 2 TDs as a rookie last year. He faces stiff competition for playing time this season, though, with 2nd-round rookie Dante Pettis joining veterans Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin. We'll see how soon Taylor is able to get back on the field, but he's not worth a pick in fantasy drafts right now.
The 49ers selected Washington WR Dante Pettis with the 44th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. He never reached 1,000 yards in 4 college seasons and didn’t jump off the tape to us. But Kyle Shanahan obviously likes him. Pettis was a stud return man at Washington and is considered 1 of the better route runners in this class. He’ll join Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin atop San Francisco’s depth chart.
