49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Records six tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilhoite recorded six tackles (five solo) while forcing and recovering a fumble in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Wilhoite has spent the majority of the season alternating between starter and backup in Jim O'Neil's defense. On Sunday, he became the only active middle linebacker after Gerald Hodges was suspended and Nick Bellore (elbow) left the game early. The latter was already ruled out for the remainder of the season, and we have yet to hear about Hodges' status for Saturday's matchup with the Rams. Either way, you can expect Wilhoite to start at one of the two inside linebacker positions, making him a solid pickup based on tackle potential alone.

49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Gets the start Thursday, finishes with five tackles
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilhoite got the start Thursday, finishing with five tackles (three solo) and a half sack in the loss to the Cardinals.

Wilhoite started alongside Nick Bellore (11 tackles) and only ceded 10 snaps to Gerald Hodges. He will hold value in most IDP formats so long as he continues to start, after posting 85 tackles in 12 games last season. If both Bellore and Wilhoite are available, the former may be the more attractive pickup due to the latter likely to be used heavily in pass coverage.

49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Stock rises with NaVorro Bowman injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wilhoite filled in for the injured NaVorro Bowman (Achilles) on Sunday, accumulating 12 tackles (10 solo) in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Bowman was carted off the field after sustaining a non-contact leg injury. Initial reports indicate an Achilles injury, which could end the All-Pro linebacker's season. If that is the case, Wilhoite will step into a starting role and become an immediate IDP force due to the potential for high tackle totals. He racked up 85 tackles in 12 games last season.

49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Injury could open up playing time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

With Ray-Ray Armstrong (pectoral) being placed on IR on Monday, Wilhoite could be in line for more snaps at middle linebacker, CSN Bay Area reports.

49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neill stated that the team is going to need Wilhoite and Gerald Hodges to win games with Armstrong going down. A timeshare would ultimately limit both players' IDP value.

49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Gets extensive playing time Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilhoite started Thursday's preseason finale and finished with a team-high eight tackles (seven solo) in a win over the Chargers.

While he had a strong performance on the field, the fact that he played in this game while Gerald Hodges and Ray-Ray Armstrong sat out doesn't bode well for his chances to begin the season as a starter. He racked up an IDP-relevant 85 tackles in 12 starts last season, but the team may opt to go with the more athletic platoon of Hodges and Armstrong alongside NaVorro Bowman to open to season.
