Shark Bites

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan was non-committal on TE George Kittle's availability for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. “I mean there’s issues,” Shanny said. “He’s got things in his knee and ankle so we’ll see.” Kittle didn't practice on Thursday. We'll get a couple more practice updates over the next 2 days and will hopefully have a good idea of his status by Sunday morning. Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister is a decent fallback plan if you wait on Kittle and he ends up inactive.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) won't practice on Thursday, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Kittle played through this injuries last Thursday night, but Shanny said the team won't know his status for Monday night's game against the Seahawks until the end of the week. We'll continue to keep a close eye on this.

49ers K Robbie Gould is dealing with a quad injury and is "very much in doubt" for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. San Francisco has signed Chase McLaughlin, who will kick vs. Seattle if Gould can't. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but try to avoid it in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Niners LB Kwon Alexander tore a pectoral muscle in Thursday night's game against the Cardinals and will miss the rest of the season, according to multiple reports. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that rookie Dre Greenlaw will step into Alexander's spot, according to Niners Nation.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Panthers — but his role is completely uncertain after the addition of WR Emmanuel Sanders.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. That leaves Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin as San Francisco’s top 2 WRs. Pettis’ usage has been trending up, but he remains just a WR4 flier for now.

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He popped up on the injury report on Friday, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that there's "some concern about whether [Kittle] will be able to finish the game.” There’s obviously increased risk here, but Kittle still sits 4th in our Week 6 TE Rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers TE George Kittle is expected to play today against the Rams, "barring a setback." Rapoport adds that Kittle "may workout pregame to test it, but the plan is to play." Kittle was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring issue. The situation certainly adds risk to his Week 6 outlook and damages his DFS profile. But an active Kittle will almost certainly start in your season-long lineup.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that there's "some concern about whether [Kittle] will be able to finish the game." He remains a top-5 play in season-long leagues but now looks like a tournament-only option in DFS.

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. But HC Kyle Shanahan said afterwards that he expects Kittle to be available for Sunday's game. It's a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, but we'll look for an update on Kittle's status in the morning. You can keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Niners RB Tevin Coleman is active for tonight's game against the Browns. It will mark his 1st game back since suffering a high-ankle sprain in the opener. With Coleman back, RB Jeff Wilson is inactive -- a healthy scratch. That leaves the backfield as Coleman, Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida.

Niners DE Dee Ford is active for tonight's game against the Browns. He made it onto the field for just 1 limited practice this week while dealing with a quad injury and has been hampered by multiple issues all season. S Jimmie Ward is also active for the 1st time this season. We'll see whether he takes the FS job back from Tarvarius Moore.

Niners RB Tevin Coleman is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Browns. HC Kyle Shanahan is optimistic that Coleman’s ankle will allow him to play. The Monday night kick, of course, makes it tough to wait for Coleman in fantasy. The potential for Coleman to return does hurt the outlook for Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a shot to return for Monday night's game vs. the Browns after he went down with a high-ankle sprain back in Week 1. It's unclear how San Francisco will divvy carries between Coleman, Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson.

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Dolphins. With WR Mike Williams (back) also out, it’ll be Dontrelle Inman operating as Los Angeles’ #2 WR. He’s a WR4 or flex option in this pristine matchup.

Niners DE Nick Bosa, DE Dee Ford and S Jaquiski Tartt are active for today's game against the Steelers. All entered the day questionable and are low-level IDP options at best. Ford, in particular, has been struggling through his return from a preseason knee sprain and should not be in fantasy football lineups. DB Jimmie Ward, meanwhile, is inactive once again. That keeps Tarvarius Moore in play for deep IDP leagues.

Niners DE Nick Bosa (ankle), S Jaquiski Tartt (toe) and DE Dee Ford (quad) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Bosa put in limited practices all week, which was better than last week. Then, he sat out Wednesday and Thursday before returning Friday and then playing through a "questionable" tag. We'd bet on him playing Sunday, though it's still a good spot to keep him out of IDP lineups. Tartt missed Wednesday's practice before returning to limited workouts the next 2 days. Ford missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices before a limited Friday. He's listed with a quad injury but has been struggling to get over a preseason knee injury. He's a definite sit for IDP owners even if active. We'll check the status of all 3 Sunday afternoon, but the late start combined with their situations means you should try to look elsewhere for fantasy options.

2:09pm EDT 9/20/19

The 49ers have moved WR Trent Taylor (foot) to IR, knocking him out for at least the next 8 weeks. He can be dropped in all redraft leagues.

Niners DE Nick Bosa (ankle) is active for today's game against the Bengals. He had some soreness in his previously sprained ankle coming out of Week 1 and got some rest from practice during the week. But Bosa also graded out tops among all edge players in Pro Football Focus' pass-rushing productivity in Week 1. He's worth the risk against a Bengals offense that looks weak in pass protection.

Niners rookie DE Nick Bosa is questionable for Sunday's game at Cincinnati. Bosa came away from Week 1 with some soreness in his previously sprained ankle, GM John Lynch said during a radio interview Friday. Bosa sat out Wednesday's and Thursday's practices before returning to limited participation Friday. Lynch said Bosa was progressing well. We'll see if he's ready to go. There will be some re-injury risk even if he plays but also enticing sack upside.

49ers WRs Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) are out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. Deebo Samuel and Marquise Goodwin served as San Francisco’s top 2 WRs in the opener. We’ll see if WR Dante Pettis plays a bigger role in Week 2, but try to avoid this situation in fantasy lineups.
