Shark Bites

Niners QB Brock Purdy threw for a career-high 365 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but that didn't stop it from being a rough outing. He hit just 1 TD pass while turning the ball over three times. Purdy threw a pair of INTs and lost a fumble. It's just the second multi-INT game of his career, but they've come over the past two weeks. San Francisco gets a Week 9 bye, then matchups with Jacksonville and Tampa Bay that have been negative for QB scoring, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. After that, however, come four straight positive matchups for QB scoring.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (left shoulder) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He was reportedly cleared to return to Monday night's game and will be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders' 32nd-ranked QB defense.

49ers QB Brock Purdy suffered a stinger in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Ravens. He's been cleared to return, according to ESPN's Lisa Salters, but Purdy has remained on the sidelines with San Francisco trailing by 14. We'll look for more info on Purdy's status, but it sounds like we should expect him to be available for Week 17's game vs. the Commanders.

Niners QB Brock Purdy threw for 314 yards and 4 TDs in Sunday's lopsided win at Philadelphia. He hit Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings, and Deebo Samuel (twice) for scores. It marked the fourth time in the past five games that Purdy threw for at least 296 yards (third game over 300) and the third game among the past four with at least 3 TD passes. Sunday's game marked a rebound from his QB25 fantasy finish in Week 12 against the Seahawks. Purdy gets a rematch with Seattle in Week 14, but we're not downgrading him. Two of the past four QBs to face the Seahawks have thrown 3 TD passes and finished among the top 3 fantasy QBs for the week. After that comes even better matchups with the Cardinals and Commanders in weeks 15 and 17, sandwiching a tough Week 16 spot vs. Baltimore.

49ers QB Brock Purdy went off for 333 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. He posted a perfect 158.3 QB rating while spreading scores to Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, and Christian McCaffrey. Purdy should make his way onto plenty of championship squads, as long as this offense stays healthy. His rest-of-season schedule only includes one negative matchup – Week 16 vs. Baltimore.

49ers QB Brock Purdy looked strong in Sunday's win over Jacksonville, throwing for 296 yards and 3 TDs. Purdy had gone three straight games with exactly one TD. On Sunday, though, he spread scores to Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, and Kyle Juszczyk, with Kittle’s coming on an impressive deep ball in the face of pressure. Purdy’s strength of schedule looks excellent moving forward, as only one matchup (Week 16, vs. Baltimore) turns up as negative. The nucleus of San Francisco’s offense is healthy, so Purdy will project as a QB1 most weeks.
