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.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin returned to the team on Monday and is expected to play against the Broncos this weekend, according to insider Matt Maiocco. Goodwin missed the past 2 games to deal with a family matter. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR4 for Week 14.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan on Monday ruled out RB Matt Breida (ankle) for this weekend's game against the Broncos. The early rule-out suggests Breida might be looking at a multi-game absence -- especially since the 'Niners have nothing to play for. Breida's absence on Sunday leaves Jeff Wilson as San Francisco's lead back. He popped this past week, totaling 134 yards on 23 catches. The undrafted rookie hails from North Texas, goes 6'0 and 194 pounds and owns a 21st percentile SPARQ score. So he's not an exciting prospect. But volume will put him in the RB3 mix for Week 14.

Niners S Jaquiski Tartt re-aggravated his shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Tartt has already lost 4 games to injury this season and hasn't reached 90% playing time since Oct. 21. He's not worth hanging on to in most IDP leagues at this point. If Tartt misses further time, Antone Exum would hit the IDP radar. He started in Tartt's place earlier this year and stepped in for the other half of Sunday's SS snaps.

49ers RB Matt Breida aggravated his lingering ankle injury during pregame warmups today, HC Kyle Shahanan said. Breida ended up playing against Seattle but was out-touched 23 to 8 by RB Jeffery Wilson. We’ll see what Breida is able to do in practice this week before deciding whether he’s a viable Week 14 fantasy play. Wilson is worth stashing in the meantime.

49ers WRs Marquise Goodwin (personal) and Pierre Garcon (knee) are out for this weekend’s game in Seattle.Dante Pettis, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James will serve as San Francisco’s top 3 WRs.Pettis is the only fantasy consideration — and he’s just a WR4 flier.

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

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) will miss Monday's contest against the Giants. He missed each practice during the week. With Garcon sidelined, San Francisco will primarily utilize Marquise Goodwin, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne at WR.

49ers QB Nick Mullens will start Monday night's game against the Giants. Mullens played better than anyone could have expected in his debut last Thursday, completing 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. His 151.9 passer rating was the best in NFL history in a QB debut with 16+ pass attempts. The outing said just as much about Oakland's defense as Mullens' ability, though. He's just a low-end QB2 for Week 10.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert broke his right arm in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game. It was a nasty looking injury that will very likely end his season. Mostert racked up 86 yards and a score on 6 totes against a lifeless Raiders defense before exiting.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Raiders. San Francisco should lean on the run in this one with Nick Mullens under center. But Breida remains at less than 100% and carries extra risk tonight just 4 days removed from his last game.

The 49ers announced that QB Nick Mullens will start tonight's game against the Raiders. QB C.J. Beathard (wrist) will be active as the backup. Mullens went undrafted out of Southern Miss. He completed a mediocre 60% of his career passes in college and tossed 46 INTs in 44 games. Downgrade George Kittle to low-end TE1 status with Mullens under center. We'd try to avoid the rest of San Francisco's passing game.

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.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Raiders after a limited week of practice. He's fully expected to play -- although he'll be at less than 100% like he's been for most of the season. Breida is a risky fantasy starter on the short week.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan labeled QB C.J. Beathard a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders. He's dealing with a wrist injury that's inhibiting his ability to grip the ball. It's obviously not something you want to be messing with in fantasy lineups. QB Nick Mullens will make his 1st career NFL start if Beathard can't go.

49ers QB C.J. Beathard is dealing with a wrist injury that's making it tough to hold the ball, HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. Shanny also suggested that Beathard is shaping up as a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders. If Beathard can't go, San Francisco would be down to QB Nick Mullens, a former undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss.

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.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He played just 5 snaps last week and is expected to be limited today. Breida isn’t a recommended fantasy starter. Raheem Mostert is the best bet in San Francisco’s backfield.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play against the Cardinals later today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but "won't be 100%." Breida lasted just 5 snaps last week and only got in 1 practice this week. He's a high-risk fantasy play today. We'd actually lean toward Raheem Mostert if you're considering a Niners RB.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that Breida is expected to "be limited." It's tough to know just how much of a touch share he'll be in for after playing just 5 snaps in last week's game.
