49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk caught 5-of-5 targets for 76 yards in the team's Week 16 upset of Jacksonville.
Juszczyk gave the 49ers their biggest play in the passing game on a beautiful design by OC Kyle Shanahan to gain 44 yards, which also happens to be Juszczyk’s number. We are still trying to figure out how to spell his last name correctly, consistently, but the NFL’s highest-paid fullback has become a bigger weapon with Jimmy Garoppolo under center.

Kyle Juszczyk hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 64 yards in the 49ers' Week 14 win over the Texans.

Juszczyk did almost all his damage on two catches in a three-play span in the second quarter. He got loose deep down the sideline for a 29-yard gain and then two plays later rumbled for 31 yards to help set up a two-yard touchdown for Carlos Hyde. This is probably what the 49ers had in mind when they signed Juszczyk to a big deal this offseason, but he is still not a fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk exited Week 9 against the Cardinals with a neck injury.

He stayed down after a goal-line play in the third quarter and was escorted into the locker room. He is officially questionable to return. Juszczyk missed two games earlier this season with a back injury and suffered a concussion in Week 3.

Kyle Juszczyk (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Juszczyk is still in the concussion protocol, but looks likely to play after practicing all week.

Kyle Juszczyk (concussion) was a limited at Wednesday's practice.

He still needs to clear the concussion protocol, though Juszczyk should be on track to play Sunday against the Cardinals. The Pro Bowl fullback has caught three passes for 51 yards this year.

Kyle Juszczyk (neck) will not return to Week 3 against the Rams.

He's one of the best offensive fullbacks in the NFL and he did have 34-yard catch in the first half. Juszczyk missing time could mean more targets to the backs and tight ends.

49ers GM John Lynch said he views new FB Kyle Juszczyk as an offensive weapon.

That much was clear when they decided to give him $21 million over four years including $10.5 million guaranteed. Juszczyk caught 97 passes during his four years in Baltimore including 78 in the last two seasons. He will likely be used as the passing-down complement to Carlos Hyde, and it would not be surprising to see him involved in the running game as well. Juszczyk will be an interesting name in PPR drafts this summer.

New 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk's deal is for four years and $21 million.

ESPN's Trevor Scales reports it includes $10.5 million guaranteed. It's a staggering amount of money for a fullback, though Juszczyk has arguably earned it with his blocking and pass catching. He's also going to play for Kyle Shanahan, a coach who expertly utilized Patrick DiMarco in Atlanta last season. It's a ton of coin, but the rebuilding 49ers can easily afford it.

49ers agreed to terms with FB Kyle Juszczyk, formerly of the Ravens.

Juszczyk is an excellent blocker, but also an adept pass catcher, snagging 78 passes over the past two seasons. He'll be a versatile body out of the backfield for creative play-caller Kyle Shanahan. Slowly but surely, the 49ers are at least adding a few viable NFLers to their skill corps. Juszczyk turns 26 in April.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports the 49ers are "among the teams in on" free agent FB Kyle Juszczyk.

Juszczyk may have the hottest market 24 hours into the "legal tampering" period of free agency. The Niners join the Browns and Bills as teams coming hot and heavy after him. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Bills are the favorite, but the Niners and Browns have the most cap space in the league and could drive up the price. "Juice" fits great in Kyle Shanahan's offense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bills have emerged as the favorite to sign free agent FB Kyle Juszczyk.

Schefter reported earlier Wednesday that the Browns are "very interested" in Juszczyk, so it sounds like he has a somewhat-hot market. Juszczyk isn't the normal fullback; on top of his lead-blocking duties, he can run the ball, catch it, and split out wide as a receiver. Juszczyk has 78 catches over the past two seasons and wants to sign with a team that will give him an even bigger role.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns are "very interested" in free agent FB Kyle Juszczyk.

As Schefter notes, there's a Harvard connection, with the Browns employing several analytics-minded Harvard graduates in their front office and Juszczyk a Pro Bowl lead blocker out of Harvard. Juszczyk isn't the run-of-the-mill lead blocker-type. He has a very capable set of hands and is more of a hybrid H-back/TE who is viewed as potential under-the-radar signing in this class.

Kyle Juszczyk caught 2-of-3 targets for 10 yards and rushed twice for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

With Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon struggling in pass protection, Juszczyk has been playing more snaps in the passing game in recent weeks. He made that work count against the Steelers, showing great balance to maintain his feet and find the end zone from 10 yards out late in the fourth quarter to give Baltimore the lead. The Ravens gave up that advantage, but Juszczyk is clearly going to be part of the offense moving forward.
Sun, Dec 25, 2016 08:25:00 PM

Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk caught 6-of-7 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Raiders.

The Ravens proactively schemed plays for Juszczyk in scoring position, but they didn't work. Juszczyk has a big role in OC Marc Trestman's offense as a sort of poor man's Larry Centers, but he isn't worth serious fantasy consideration.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 04:52:00 PM

Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk caught 5-of-6 targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 15 loss to Kansas City.

A checkdown option and sometimes goal-line receiver, Juszczyk has now hit pay dirt three times this season, all on receptions out of the backfield. Juszczyk is a useful player in the Ravens' offense, but has no fantasy value, even in the deepest of Dynasty leagues.
