49ers WR Quinton Patton (concussion) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bears.

Patton returned to practice on Thursday but has not officially passed the concussion protocol. There's a high likelihood of him playing this week, but he won't be a fantasy option if he does.

49ers WR Quinton Patton (concussion) returned to practice on Thursday.

He's still in the league's protocol but should be cleared in time for Sunday's game against Chicago. Patton hasn't scored a touchdown all season and won't be a realistic fantasy consideration for Week 13.
Dec 1 - 2:25 PM

Vance McDonald caught 4-of-8 targets for 60 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins.

McDonald led the 49ers in targets and yards, but also lost three targets to Garrett Celek, who lost a fumble. McDonald is an important playmaker for Chip Kelly's offense, but it isn't translating to more than low-end TE2 value in fantasy leagues.

Jeremy Kerley caught 2-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins.

It was an improvement on Kerley's 0-of-6 Week 11. Kerley hasn't been a factor since the 49ers benched checkdown king Blaine Gabbert. That's unlikely to change down the stretch.
Nov 27 - 6:31 PM

Torrey Smith caught 3-of-7 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins.

Amazingly, Smith's third score of the year — and ninth as a 49er — was a one-yard strike from Colin Kaepernick. So much for being a deep threat. Even with Kap's play taking off in recent weeks, Smith has remained almost a complete non-factor. He'll be in the WR60-70 range for Week 13.
Nov 27 - 6:29 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 65 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins, adding five receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown.

With the 49ers doing an excellent job of executing the read option, Hyde averaged a season-high 5.0 yards per carry. The receiving score was his first of the year. Looking rejuvenated the past two weeks, Hyde will be a solid RB2 against the Bears' decimated defense in Week 13.
Nov 27 - 6:27 PM

Colin Kaepernick completed 29-of-46 passes for 296 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the 49ers' 31-24, Week 12 loss to the Dolphins, adding 10 carries for 113 additional yards.

The 49ers trailed all afternoon, but this wasn't really a garbage time situation. It was Kap keeping his team in a winnable game on the road. The game nearly went to overtime, but Kap got stopped at the two-yard line as time expired. Kap and the Niners really burned the Dolphins with the read option. The 113 rushing yards were the fourth most of Kap's career (including the playoffs), and give him 373 on the year. Kap has been toeing the line between "fantasy good" and actually good. At the very least, he's been a monumental improvement on Blaine Gabbert. He'll be set up for another nice day in Week 13 against the Bears.

49ers WR Quinton Patton is week to week with a concussion.

Patton was knocked out in the second half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Patton had one catch for 12 yards before going down.
Nov 27 - 3:09 PM

49ers ILB Nick Bellore was forced from San Francisco's Week 12 game against the Dolphins with a knee injury, and will not return.

Bellore has been an every-down player for the 49ers' abysmal defense.
Nov 27 - 2:56 PM

Torrey Smith (shoulder) is active for Week 12 against the Dolphins.

Smith figures to make zero impact, as usual. Colin Kaepernick doesn't look his theoretical No. 1 receiver's way. Inactive for the 49ers are DL Quinton Dial, OLB Aaron Lynch, RB Mike Davis, DB Marcus Cromartie, TE Je'Ron Hamm, QB Christian Ponder and OL John Theus.
Nov 27 - 11:35 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Torrey Smith (shoulder) will play Week 12 against the Dolphins.

Smith will test out the shoulder in pre-game warmups, but he is expected to suit up. None of this matters from a fantasy perspective, of course. While he will have the odd big game, Smith is way too inconsistent to trust in any format.
Nov 27 - 8:32 AM

49ers CB Jimmie Ward (concussion) is questionable for Week 12 against the Dolphins.

Ward suffered a concussion in last week's loss to New England but returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He was also limited at Friday's session. Ward still needs to pass the concussion protocol but his presence at practice the last two days suggests he'll be good to go on Sunday.
Nov 25 - 3:03 PM

Torrey Smith (shoulder) is questionable for Week 12 against the Dolphins.

He should be good to go after getting in three limited practices this week. A hit-or-miss deep threat, Smith has logged just 61 receiving yards with no touchdowns over his last three games. He'll be well off the fantasy radar against Miami this week.
Nov 25 - 2:58 PM

Torrey Smith (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Smith missed his first career game in Week 11. He's on track to play Sunday against Miami but he hasn't been a relevant fantasy contributor all season.
Nov 23 - 4:21 PM

49ers OLB Eli Harold is dealing with a foot injury.

Harold is looking questionable for Week 12 after not practicing Tuesday. Ahmad Brooks and Tank Carradine are the 49ers only healthy outside linebackers.
