49ers re-signed RB Kendall Gaskins.
The 49ers waived Gaskins in May, but may have not loved what they saw from Mike Davis and rookie Kelvin Taylor at OTAs/minicamp. 25-year-old Gaskins managed 38 yards on 16 carries last season. He shouldn't make the final 53. Jun 20 - 4:53 PM

49ers waived RB Kendall Gaskins.

The Niners cut Gaskins, Corey Acosta, Jordan Devey and Dylan Thompson Friday to make room for their rookie class. Gaskins appeared in nine games last season, rushing 16 times for 38 yards. Carlos Hyde, who missed the final nine games with a stress fracture, will open 2016 as the Niners' bellcow.
May 6 - 3:01 PM

49ers RB Kendall Gaskins rushed twice for 12 yards in San Francisco's Week 16 loss to the Lions.

DuJuan Harris logged 12 touches, Jarryd Hayne logged 14, and Gaskins was the No. 3 back with two touches. Gaskins led San Francisco's backfield after Shaun Draughn's Week 15 knee injury, but Hayne started this game and Harris showed the hottest hand. The distribution for Week 17 against the Rams is unclear.

The 49ers announced on their pre-game release that they will start Kendall Gaskins "OR" DuJuan Harris against the Lions.

Thanks for the help, guys. We are guessing Gaskins gets the start, but the 49ers left the door open for Harris to start, and also activated Jarryd Hayne late this week. The 49ers' inactives are RB Shaun Draughn, LB Corey Lemonier, WR Jerome Simpson, LB Michael Wilhoite, CB Chris Davis, OL Marcus Martin, and OL Brandon Thomas.

49ers RB Kendall Gaskins rushed twice for zero yards and caught 6-of-7 targets for 52 yards in San Francisco's Week 15 loss to the Bengals.

With Shaun Draughn (knee) leaving early, Gaskins handled eight touches, Travaris Cadet logged six, and FB Bruce Miller chipped in three touches, including a goal-line touchdown. Gaskins or Cadet will be the 49ers' lead back when San Francisco visits Detroit in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 08:59:00 PM’s Joe Fann expects Kendall Gaskins to get red-zone carries.

Gaskins played 29 snaps after Reggie Bush and Mike Davis went down last week. He’s been in OC Geep Chryst’s system all year and should lead the 49ers’ Week 9 backfield. Recently-signed Pierre Thomas will likely be limited to pass-down work.

CSN Bay Area considers Kendall Gaskins ahead of Pierre Thomas.

The 49ers are expected to have a Week 9 committee, but Gaskins should get the first chance at carries. Thomas is a 30-year-old back that hasn’t played since 2014, and Shaun Draughn is a career special teamer. Gaskins is the favorite for early-down/red-zone work, but isn’t more than a desperation RB4.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows guesses the 49ers will employ a "three-headed monster" of Kendall Gaskins, Pierre Thomas, and Shaun Draughn at running back in Week 9 against the Falcons.

Our popcorn is ready.

Kendall Gaskins rushed five times for six yards in the 49ers' Week 8 loss to the Rams.

Carlos Hyde (foot) was ruled out over the weekend, and Gaskins got the promotion from the practice squad. After Reggie Bush tore his ACL in the first quarter and rookie Mike Davis hurt his hand in the third quarter, Gaskins was the only running back left. If Gaskins gets the starting nod in Week 9 against the Falcons, he still won't be a recommended fantasy option.

49ers signed RB Kendall Gaskins, TE Xavier Grimble, WR Lance Lewis, OT Chris Martin and DT Garrison Smith to reserve/future contracts.

A 2013 undrafted free agent, Gaskins has yet to appear in a regular-season game. He averaged 3.6 yards on 29 preseason carries in 2014.
