49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) has been activated from IR. That makes him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, although it's still unclear if he'll be ready. We should have a better idea of his Week 8 status by Friday afternoon.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) won't play against the Seahawks this weekend and will "probably" miss the following Thursday night's game vs. the Packers. It's worth noting that San Francisco has a Week 11 bye, so it's possible Samuel is held out of Week 10, too. His absence will leave rookie Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne as the 49ers' top 2 WRs. That's especially important with Seattle's league-worst WR defense on tap.

The 49ers placed RB Jeff Wilson on IR with his high-ankle sprain. He's out for at least the next 3 games. RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) is out for at least 2 more games, while RB Tevin Coleman (knee) remains iffy for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks. San Francisco might be down to RBs JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon for that one. Hasty should be owned in pretty much all fantasy leagues at this point.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury reports that 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Patriots. We'll see about the expected return timeline, but this likely makes Wilson a drop in nearly all redraft leagues. RB Tevin Coleman should return soon and faces big opportunity when he does make it back. If Coleman's not ready for Week 8, then rookie JaMycal Hasty figures to see an uptick in work. He logged 9 carries each of the past 2 weeks.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel left Sunday's game at New England with a hamstring injury and did not return. We'll watch for updates on his status heading into Week 8.

Update: It's a hamstring strain, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury. The team expects Samuel to miss at least Week 8 against Seattle. We'll see beyond that.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson suffered a lower left leg injury at the end of his 3rd TD run in Sunday's game against the Patriots. He got off the field under his own power but was carted to the locker room. We'll update Wilson's status when we know more.

Update: Wilson has an ankle injury and has been ruled out.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He joins Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in a backfield missing Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman. McKinnon is the best fantasy bet today, but this could be a “hot-hand” situation.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is expected to play against the Patriots today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He'll join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in San Francisco's backfield. Wilson isn't a bankable fantasy play but could handle goal-line work for the 'Niners today.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots after a limited week of practice. With Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman out, Wilson’s absence would leave San Francisco with only RBs Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) "isn't likely" to return for this weekend's game against the Patriots, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. San Francisco will also be without RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) for that one, while RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is uncertain. That leaves Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty as the team's healthy RBs.

Niners RB Raheem Mostert sustained a high-ankle sprain in Sunday night's win over the Rams and is headed to IR, according to Grant Cohn of SI.com. That means he'll miss at least 3 games. We'll see beyond that. Jerick McKinnon is the guy we know will be involved in replacing Mostert for Sunday's game at New England. He garnered just 8 touches for 28 total yards against the Rams, though. Jeff Wilson missed Week 6 with a calf injury he suffered during the practice week. That left rookie JaMycal Hasty working in his place against the Rams. Tevin Coleman is eligible to come off IR for Week 7, but we don't yet know whether his sprained knee will be ready. We'll see how this backfield picture develops through the week.

Niners RB Raheem Mostert left Sunday night's game against the Rams with a left ankle injury. The team ruled him out for the rest of the game, which isn't great news for his Week 7 outlook. We'll watch for further updates on his status. If Mostert misses further time, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson would step back to prominence. Tevin Coleman should also be nearing a return from the knee sprain that has kept him from playing since Week 2.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is inactive for tonight's game against the Rams. He played 23% of the offensive snaps and handled 4 carries with 1 target last week, so his absence opens up a little more work for RBs Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon.

Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. He finished the week with 2 full practices, though, and looks on track to play. We'll confirm Moseley's status Sunday.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will start Sunday night’s game against the Rams, HC Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. Garoppolo reportedly had a good week of practice after his disastrous half vs. the Dolphins. Make Garoppolo earn his way back into your fantasy lineup after that dud.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan said this week that LB Kwon Alexander suffered what the team believes to be a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. "They're not sure of the severity of it," he said. "It could be a minor one for whatever that means." Alexander didn't miss any of the game, but he did miss Wednesday's 1st practice of Week 6. We'd have to bet on him at least missing this Sunday night's game against the Rams, which should mean near-full playing time for LB Dre Greenlaw. We'll keep an eye on the situation this week.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said he pulled QB Jimmy Garoppolo from this past week's game against Miami because his injured ankle was impacting his play. Shanny wouldn't say whether Garoppolo will be able to start this weekend's game vs. the Rams. "We'll see how he is on Wednesday," Shanahan said. "I expect him to be at least the same, if not better. So, hopefully we can get a week of that and have no setbacks (on) Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And hopefully we get him out there Sunday night." We'll track Garoppolo's status, but plan on avoiding the 49ers QB situation in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against Miami. He was horrible in the first 30 minutes, completing just 7 of 17 passes for 77 yards and 2 INTs. QB C.J. Beathard replaced Garoppolo. We're assuming the 'Niners will go back to Garoppolo next week, but we'll see what HC Kyle Shanahan says.

2:10pm EDT 10/11/20

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (illness) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. We’re expecting him to play more than the 34% of snaps he did last week, although he still might not be ready for a full workload. Consider Samuel a WR3 in today’s plus matchup.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He missed the last 2 games and was limited in practice this week, so it’s unclear how big a role he’s ready for. It leaves Mostert as a risk/reward Week 5 fantasy play.
