MyFantasyLeague.com will be changing 49ers DL DeForest Buckner from a DE to a DT on Wednesday. If your IDP league doesn't split the 2 DL groups, then the change doesn't mean anything. But if you play with a DT-specific slot, then you should be aware of the change and the further value boost that Buckner gets. He delivered strong numbers as a rookie while playing a ton of snaps. Buckner has dealt with an ankle sprain this summer but carries as much upside as any fantasy DT when healthy -- now that Aaron Donald has moved to DE.

Niners DT DeForest Buckner left Wednesday's practice with a sprained left ankle. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that Buckner got it taped on the sideline and tried to "walk it off" but could not return to the field. That makes the injury sound relatively minor, but we'll see how long he's out.

49ers DE DeForest Buckner (foot) is active for today's game against the Bills. He missed the Week 5 loss to the Cardinals but should be OK to use as you normally would in your IDP league this week. There's tackle upside against the run-favoring Bills.
