Shark Bites

A Monday MRI revealed a Grade 2 strain to the right hamstring of 49ers CB Richard Sherman, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. That puts Sherman in doubt for Sunday's game against the Falcons and perhaps beyond. We'll see how he progresses, but make sure you have another option for the CB slot in your IDP lineup.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return to the backfield alongside Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert for Sunday’s game against the Saints. It’s anyone’s guess as to how touches will be divvied between those 3, leaving them all as risk/reward RB3 or flex plays.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) put in a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll return for this weekend's showdown with the Saints. How the 'Niners will divvy carries between Breida, Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert is anyone's guess. It makes all 3 guys risk/reward RB3 plays.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he's "optimistic" about RB Matt Breida's chances of returning for this weekend's game against the Saints. Raheem Mostert took control of San Francisco's backfield in yesterday's loss to the Ravens, out-carrying Tevin Coleman 19 to 5. But with Breida back in this mix, this will be a tough situation to handicap for Week 14.

11:12am EST 12/1/19

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. He’s expected back for Week 14. Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will continue to operate as San Francisco’s top 2 backs today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has updated his original report and now says 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) won't play against the Ravens today. "49ers want a fully healthy Breida for New Orleans next week," Schefter adds. So fantasy owners should get Breida back for Week 14. Raheem Mostert will again serve as San Francisco's #2 RB today.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is not expected to play against the Ravens today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So Raheem Mostert will get another game as the #2 RB behind Tevin Coleman. Mostert has tallied 6 carries and 3 targets in back-to-back games, making him just a RB3 flier in fantasy lineups.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Breida is expected to play. We'll see who's right when the 'Niners release their inactives around 11:30 am TE.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. Breida will be a risk/reward RB3 if active.

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game in Baltimore but isn’t a recommended fantasy play in that matchup.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to play in this weekend's showdown with the Ravens. We'll track his status over the next couple of days.

6:11pm EST 11/24/19

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Packers. Chase McLaughlin kicks again for San Francisco.

6:11pm EST 11/24/19

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Packers. With Breida out last week, RB Tevin Coleman handled 12 carries and 4 targets to Raheem Mostert’s 6 carries and 3 targets. Expect a similar split tonight.

6:11pm EST 11/24/19

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is officially active for tonight’s game against the Packers. On top of the knee issue, he’ll reportedly be playing through a broken bone in his ankle that still hasn’t fully healed. We’ll see how he holds up.

49ers WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder) are active for tonight's game against the Packers. Sanders is the riskier of the 2 after he was unable to make it through last week's game. WR Marquise Goodwin is a healthy scratch.

49ers TE George Kittle broke a bone in his ankle during the Week 9 win over the Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kittle somehow finished out that game but has been sidelined the past 2 weeks. The ankle still isn't fully healed, according to Schefter, but Kittle is expected to play against the Packers tonight. It obviously adds risk to his Week 12 outlook. We'll see how he fares.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and TE George Kittle (knee) are expected to play against the Packers tonight. "Though the may work out pre-game" before a final decision is made, Rapoport adds. We won't get San Francisco's inactives until 7 pm ET tonight, so it'd be wise to have a backup plan in place for these guys. But all 3 can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Matt Maiocco reports that the 49ers consider TE George Kittle a "game-time decision" for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Maiocco says that Kittle's goal "all along" has been to return for the Green Bay game. We'll keep an eye out for some indication early Sunday that the Niners expect him to play. If you're trying to wait on Kittle, though, you'll need to make sure you have insurance.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers because of a shoulder injury that limited his practice time this week after knocking him out for a portion of last Sunday's game. Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, however, reports that the team expects Samuel to play. There's some extra risk here, but Samuel belongs in fantasy-starter consideration.

49ers WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder) are listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Both guys got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and are expected to play vs. Green Bay. Sanders comes with risk, though, after he was unable to make it through last week's game. Samuel returned from his injury and produced, so he's the safer bet.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and has sounded optimistic about his availability. That late kickoff makes it a tricky situation for fantasy owners, though. Hopefully we get a Kittle update on Sunday morning.
