San Francisco 49ers Fantasy Football News 2018

The 49ers got S Jaquiski Tartt and LB Reuben Foster back for Monday's light practice, according to Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee. Tartt (shoulder) and Foster (hamstring) each missed the past 2 games after going down in Week 8. If they stay on track for Sunday, each would be an immediate IDP option in a high-upside matchup with the Buccaneers.

The 49ers have ruled S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) out for Monday night’s game against the Giants. Tartt’s absence puts Antone Exum in starting range for IDP lineups, after he delivered starter production while filling in earlier this season

The 49ers have ruled LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) out for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. That likely means a start for Elijah Lee in his place. Lee started 1 other game back in Week 2 and racked up 12 tackles (10 solo) and a sack. That's not enough to make him a strong option for Week 9, especially given Foster's saggy production. But there's potential IDP relevance for deep-leaguers.

The 49ers have ruled out SS Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. They will also be without his backup, Antone Exum (concussion). That likely means the 1st career start for S Tyvis Powell. San Franscisco also lists CB Richard Sherman (calf, heel) as questionable. An already-weak defense looks even softer for Week 9.

Niners LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) and S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) each left Sunday's loss to the Cardinals early with injuries and did not return. San Francisco now plays Oakland on Thursday night, which will challenge the ability of either defender to make it back for Week 9.

Niners CB Richard Sherman (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. That has no impact on IDP owners, and no one should have been considering using the San Francisco team D. The biggest effect here is that the Niners secondary now presents no real challenges for any L.A. wideouts. Josh Reynolds -- who joins the lineup with Cooper Kupp out -- gets an upside boost with Sherman's absence.

The 49ers expect to get S Jaquiski Tartt back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, according to NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. Tartt missed the past 2 games with a shoulder injury, and Antone Exum delivered a pair of top-3 fantasy finishes among DBs in his place. There's no reason to believe we can't get top-shelf fantasy production from Tartt at the position going forward.

The 49ers will likely miss SS Jaquiski Tartt for the 2nd straight week. He missed every day of practice with the shoulder injury that ended his Week 2 early and cost him Week 3. Antone Exum figures to start in Tartt's place again and looks like a decent IDP option against the Chargers. Exum racked up 9 tackles (8 solo) and a sack against the Chiefs last time out.

Niners S Jaquiski Tartt remained out with a shoulder injury Wednesday when the team started practice for the Week 4 matchup with the Chargers. Tartt missed Week 3 and watched Antone Exum step in for 9 tackles (8 solo) and a sack. If Tartt can't go Sunday, then Exum becomes an IDP option.

Niners S Jaquiski Tartt is out for today's game against the Chiefs with a shoulder injury.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the 49ers will keep rookie Fred Warner at MLB today against the Chiefs and start Reuben Foster and Malcolm Smith at the OLB spots. Foster is returning from a 2-game suspension, while Smith missed the 1st 2 games with a hamstring injury. It remains to be seen who the Niners will keep on the field for passing sub packages. IDP owners can use Warner and Foster in Week 3 lineups, but be aware of the lingering playing-time question if you're facing tough starting decisions.

Niners S Jaquiski Tartt is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Tartt missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices with a shoulder injury before returning to a limited workout Friday. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Niners S Jaquiski Tartt missed Wednesday's practice because of a shoulder injury. According to multiple reports, it's an aggravation of an issue he dealt with in the offseason. We'll watch his status throughout the week.

The 49ers got LBs Malcolm Smith and Reuben Foster back on the practice field Wednesday. Smith didn't even appear on the injury report, putting in a full workout after missing the 1st 2 games with a hamstring injury. Foster, meanwhile, completed his 2-game conduct-policy suspension and is eligible to return against the Chiefs this Sunday. HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday the coaches haven't decided on a plan for their LBs yet. The performance of rookie Fred Warner through 2 weeks complicates the decision. We'll watch for word from the coaches through the week. If we don't gain clarity before Sunday, though, it'll be tough to trust any Niners LB in IDP lineups.
