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 RB Jeff Wilson suffered a shoulder injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Rams and is questionable to return. He was filling in for RB Matt Breida today. Wilson's absence leaves Alfred Morris as San Francisco's lead back.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (calf) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Rams. With WR Dante Pettis (knee) also out, San Francisco is down to Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and Richie James. Bourne is the best fantasy bet but not more than a WR4. Look for TE George Kittle to lead the ‘Niners in targets.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is out for Sunday's finale against the Rams. He battled through a bum ankle for most of the season, making his 5.6 yards per carry even more impressive. Breida also averaged 9.8 yards on 22 catches. He has a shot to play a significant role in 2019, even with the return of RB Jerick McKinnon. Jeff Wilson will close out this season as San Francisco's lead back and be in the RB2 mix vs. the Rams.

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 RB Matt Breida aggravated his ankle injury again in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bears. He's officially questionable to return. RB Jeff Wilson will take over as long as Breida is out.

Update: Breida has been ruled out.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Bears on Sunday despite re-injuring that bum ankle last week. Between the ankle and Chicago’s top-ranked RB defense, Breida is just a RB3 for Week 16.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That suggests he's on track to play this weekend. Breida racked up 96 total yards last week before aggravating that ankle injury but will be just a RB3 against a tough Bears defense on Sunday.

49ers RB Matt Breida aggravated his ankle injury in OT of Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He looked good before that, racking up 50 yards on 17 carries and 46 more on 5 catches. This ankle has been bothering Breida seemingly all season, though. We'll see if he's able to play against the Bears next weekend. If not, the 'Niners will turn back to RB Jeff Wilson.

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 RB Matt Breida (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. It’s unclear exactly how the backfield touches will be divvied between he and Jeff Wilson. Breida is the better fantasy bet among the 2, but consider him a risk/reward RB3.

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 RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play against the Seahawks today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Breida has been banged up for most of the season and was limited in practice all week. So don't expect him to be at 100% today. It's also possible that Breida cedes more work to RB Jeff Wilson. If picking between the 2, Breida is the better fantasy bet. But this is a backfield to try to avoid.

49ers WRs Dante Pettis (foot) and Marquise Goodwin (calf) are questionable for this weekend’s game against the Seahawks. Both guys were added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited again in Friday’s practice. We’ll hopefully get an update on them Sunday morning. We won’t get San Francisco’s official inactives until 2:35 pm ET.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. We’ll look for an update on his status Sunday morning. Niners-Hawks doesn’t kick off until 4:05 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 RB Matt Breida (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to play against the Seahawks this weekend. An active Breida would figure to resume lead-back duties, ahead of Jeff Wilson.

8:12pm EST 12/10/18

The 49ers have placed WR Pierre Garcon (knee) on IR. He's been sidelined since Week 9 and finishes with just 24 catches for 286 yards and 1 TD in 8 games. The 32-year-old's time as a fantasy asset is just about over.

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.
