49ers' Aaron Lynch: Expected to play defensive line full time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

New defensive coordinator Robert Saleh wants to use Lynch as a full-time lineman, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports. "Aaron, he's on the defensive line," said Saleh. "We're going to try to keep his hand in the ground at all times."

A 2014 fifth-round selection, Lynch has primarily operated as a pass-rushing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, tallying 74 tackles and 14 sacks in 37 career games. The transition to a 4-3 scheme and a simpler role could help him rebound from an injury/suspension-marred 2016 season in which he managed only 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks in seven appearances. Still only 24 years old and listed at 6-foot-6, 270 pounds, Lynch should be able to make the transition to defensive end. Recent first-round selections Arik Armstead (2015) and DeForest Buckner (2016) figure to provide a stronger interior pass-rushing presence that will make life a bit easier for Lynch and the team's other outside rushers.

49ers' Aaron Lynch: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.

Lynch was a limited participant in each of San Francisco's practices this week. He missed the past five contests but appears on track to return to action this week. If he's unable to return look for Eli Harold to handle the starters workload once again.

49ers' Aaron Lynch: Out against Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Lynch is now set to miss his fourth consecutive game due to the bothersome ankle injury, although he's been able to practice on a limited basis lately, so his return to game action may come in Week 13 against the Bears. In the meantime, Eli Harold and Tank Carradine could be in line for additional reps at outside linebacker.
