Shark Bites

Niners LB Reuben Foster was in uniform for Thursday night's preseason finale, indicating that he has cleared the league concussion protocol. He'll still miss the 1st 2 regular-season games because of a conduct-policy suspension, but Foster should be good to go after that. Rookie Fred Warner appears likely to start in Foster's place and carries attractive long-term upside for dynasty leagues.

Recent Shark Bites

Washington has activated LB Reuben Foster from the PUP list. Foster opened training camp on the PUP following last May's ACL tear but appears on track for Week 1. Foster hasn't played in an NFL game since Week 6 of 2018 but should find an open path to a starting job in a weak Washington LB corps. He's a nice option for IDP upside late in your fantasy football draft.

Washington LB Reuben Foster is "believed to have suffered a torn ACL, plus additional damage" in a non-contact drill Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He added that the "injury has been described as major and significant" (which seems redundant). Foster is reportedly getting further opinions to determine the extent of the damage, but it sure sounds like he'll miss the coming season. Washington dumped Zach Brown in the offseason after he spent 2 years starting next to Mason Foster. Brown has since signed with the Eagles. Top candidates currently on the roster to fill the void are Shaun Dion Hamilton and Josh Harvey-Clemons. The Reuben Foster injury adds IDP upside to Mason Foster.

The league will fine Washington LB Reuben Foster 2 game checks but not suspend him "following a review of recent incidents and an assessment of his adherence to obligations arising from previous violations of league policies." The statement from the NFL went on to say that evidence didn't indicate any further violation of the personal-conduct policy in the November incident that involved a girlfriend. Foster will now be available to take over the spot vacated when Washington cut Zach Brown in March. We'll see if the team adds any further competition in the NFL Draft. At the moment, Shaun Dion Hamilton looks like Foster's chief competition.

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.

Niners ILB Reuben Foster left Saturday's game against the Colts in the 3rd quarter with a concussion. That's likely to keep him out of the final preseason contest. The 2nd-year player is suspended for the 1st 2 games of the season under the league's personal-conduct policy but should regain his starting spot in Week 3.
