Seahawks TE Cooper Helfet (ankle) is inactive for Week 13 against the 49ers.
Luke Willson and Tony Moeaki will handle tight end duties on Thursday night. Also inactive for Seattle are CB Jeremy Lane, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB Allen Bradford, C Max Unger, DT Travian Robertson, TE RaShaun Allen
49ers WR/KR Bruce Ellington (ankle) is inactive for Thursday night's Week 13 game against Seattle.
Ellington will miss his third straight game and remains week to week. The rest of the 49ers inactives are CB Tramaine Brock, RT Anthony Davis, QB Josh Johnson, NT Glenn Dorsey, WR Quinton Patton, and TE Vance McDonald.
49ers placed TE Derek Carrier (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Carrier will finish 2014 with nine catches for 105 yards, playing on 194 snaps across 11 games (one start). The 49ers added TEs Garrett Celek and Asante Cleveland in corresponding moves, and waived LB Chase Thomas.
Marquess Wilson was held without a catch in the Bears' Week 13 loss to the Lions.
Wilson nearly made a circus catch along the sideline on his lone target, but couldn't get both feet in bounds. Wilson remains a highly-intriguing hold in dynasty leagues, but is miles from fantasy relevance in re-draft formats.
Matt Forte rushed five times for six yards in Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Lions, catching 6-of-9 targets for 52 yards.
The Bears didn't even pretend to run the ball against the Lions' fearsome ground defense, dialing up only eight attempts. Forte caught screens and dump-offs, which operated as the Bears' de facto rushing "attack." With 75 percent of the season now in the books, Forte is on pace for 1,971 yards from scrimmage, 104 catches and 11 total touchdowns.
Eric Ebron caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Detroit's Week 13 win over the Bears.
Ebron had the matchup of a lifetime in a Bears defense bleeding fantasy points to tight ends, but couldn't manage his second four-catch day of the season. Ebron has posted either 22 or 23 yards in each of his past four games, a difficult feat. The first tight end off the board in May's draft is currently on pace for just 27/247/1.
Theo Riddick caught 6-of-7 targets for 54 yards in Detroit's Week 13 win over the Bears.
Riddick wash held without a rushing attempt, but was silky smooth as a receiver, operating as Matthew Stafford's primary safety valve. Riddick's RB3 value is wholly contingent on Reggie Bush's injury status, and Bush is tentatively expected to return for Week 14.
Martellus Bennett caught 8-of-12 targets for 109 yards in Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Lions.
Both the catches and yards were Bennett's second most of the season, as he did yeoman's work over the middle of the field for a Bears team committed to dinking and dunking. With four games to go, Bennett is on pace for 87/983/7. All three totals would be new career highs.
