49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's good to go for this weekend's plus matchup against the Bucs.

Recent Shark Bites

49ers WR Dante Pettis told reporters Friday that his "body's back to normal" after battling a groin injury. He added that he expects to play more than the 2 snaps he did in the opener. We'll need to see Pettis' role grow -- and grow significantly -- before considering him for fantasy lineups.

49ers WR Dante Pettis played just 2 snaps in Sunday's win over the Bucs. HC Kyle Shanahan said afterward that Pettis' groin injury was at least partly to blame. "He had health issues," Shanahan said. "That's why he missed a week of practice. He just got cleared to come back on Monday, so he was a little behind the 8 ball on that. But he didn't start the game, and we didn't have a ton of long drives where we got into the substitution flow." Pettis, of course, had a rough August and put in full practices last Thursday and Friday. So we're not ready to say the groin was the only reason for the limited playing time. Pettis is still worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but can't be trusted in Week 2 lineups.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. WRs Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) are both out for this weekend’s opener against the Bucs. Marquise Goodwin is expected to serve as the #2 WR, with Kendrick Bourne, Deebo Samuel and Richie James filling spots 3 through 5.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Despite an uneven August, he's listed as a starter on San Francisco's latest depth chart and remains the best fantasy bet in the WR corps. He has a plus Week 1 draw against the Bucs but should be considered a risk/reward WR3, especially with the groin issue.

49ers WR Dante Pettis is "having a rough camp," according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Grant Cohn. Pettis was replaced in the starting lineup in Tuesday's practice by WR Kendrick Bourne. We're guessing that's not a permanent move, but it also sounds like San Francisco's WR pecking order remains extremely fluid at this point. It'll be a situation to monitor closely in preseason action.
