Bowman has spent the last three months recovering from a torn left Achilles, but a lengthy road awaits to be traveled. The 49ers aren't obligated to update his status with regularity, meaning the general public may not learn much about his progress until the offseason program commences in April, with OTAs and minicamp to follow in May and June.
Celek set career-highs in receptions (28) and yards (341) while tying last year's mark of three touchdowns with Sunday's score. He boasts great run blocking skills and sure hands, but lacks the athleticism of fellow tight end Vance McDonald that translates to fantasy production. Both tight ends were signed to extensions in 2016, so they should begin next season as the team's one-two punch yet again.
Tartt was selected in the second round out of Samford, where he amassed 277 tackles with six interceptions in his college career. Davis was selected in the fourth round and rushed for 2,440 yards and 22 touchdowns on 454 carries in his college career.
Robinson played through a hamstring ailment Sunday en route to a four-tackle performance.
Staley was previously listed as questionable to play with a hamstring injury.
Lewis was forced out during the third quarter of Sunday's game, when he was the second signal-caller used in wake of Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) being sidelined. However, now that his season has already come to a close, rookie Jeff Driskel should see more reps behind Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in practice.
Draughn circled out of the backfield for gains of 27 and 29 yards and put San Francisco in the driver's seat early with a pair of one-yard touchdown runs. The veteran journeyman enters free agency as a player who has found a niche in San Francisco as a pass-catching back. His future in the Bay Area is somewhat limited, however, given the likely changes at the top and the fact that Carlos Hyde, who missed Sunday's game with an injury, is one of the few pieces of promise on the team's roster.
Armstrong co-started at middle linebacker with Gerald Hodges with the latter receiving more snaps on early downs (41 for Armstrong and 19 for Hodges). The interception bolstered what would have been a pedestrian tackle total. If the two linebackers continue to split snaps, then neither will see enough opportunities to rack up enough tackles next to NaVorro Bowman to become relevant in IDP leagues.
Lynch hasn't played in the past five games due to an ankle issue, but participated in every practice since Wednesday and appears in line to reclaim his starting OLB role opposite Ahmad Brooks.
The 2015 fourth-round pick finally got his first NFL catch in Week 17 of the 2016 season. The opportunity was there for Smelter this season, but a preseason injury delayed his debut. He will still be under team control next season, so a clean bill of health could lead to opportunity on a team devoid of talent on the outside, but expectations will be low for the reclamation project.
The turn in fortunes was sudden for McDonald. Last Friday, the 49ers signed the tight end to a five-year, $35 million extension. Then, in his first appearance after putting pen to paper, he lasted 17 snaps Sunday versus the Jets before sustaining the season-ending injury. With three games remaining on the 2016 slate, head coach Chip Kelly is left with the tight end duo of Garrett Celek and Blake Bell.
Iworah was promoted to the Niners' active roster two weeks ago. He suited up for last week's game against the Rams and isn't known to be dealing with an injury, so his inactive status for Sunday's game came as a surprise.
Dawson's season fizzled out in the final weeks of the season, failing to attempt a field goal in the team's final three games. He is not to blame for the lack of opportunities as San Francisco's offense ranked near the bottom of the league. The 41-year-old proved he can still get the job done, hitting 18-of-21 field goal attempts, only missing from 40-plus yards. Despite his advanced age, Dawson will have suitors in the free agent market -- assuming he is not ready call it a career -- given the glaring inconsistency of today's kickers.
The 49ers moved on from long-time starting running back Frank Gore after the 2014 season with the hope they had another iron man in house. Instead, Hyde has been anything but a model of health, suiting up in 20 of a possible 32 games. In the middle of the current campaign, he was deemed inactive two times due to a right shoulder injury. Now, a sprained MCL is the impetus for his third DNP. While Hyde will wrap up the year with career highs across the board -- 217 carries for 988 yards and six touchdowns, 27 receptions (on 33 targets) for 163 yards and three more scores -- head coach Chip Kelly is expected to turn to Shaun Draughn to power the ground attack in the season finale.
As a result, the team also released guard Darrell Greene, making this the third time the two have swapped positions on the practice squad. The cornerback had been dealing with a torn ACL for the last year and was yet to really see the practice field, but he should now be able to serve as a fully healthy member of the squad.
Jerod-Eddie injured his chest in the second week of the preseason but returned against Green Bay on Sept. 26 and had his best showing with four tackles. He projects as a backup lineman if he can survive Saturday's roster cuts.
The extent of Hamm's injury wasn't specified. Barring anything serious, he should be ready to play in time for the start of the 2017 campaign.
The nature of Patton's season-ending foot injury is now known, but a recovery timetable has yet to be established. The upcoming unrestricted free agent finished his fourth NFL season with career highs in receptions (37), targets (63), and yards (408), but the second touchdown of his career still awaits.
Cromartie was limited in practice throughout the week, so it is not a huge surprise to see him sitting out Sunday's game. He provides the 49ers depth at free safety, but his absence shouldn't strongly affect San Francisco's defensive performance.
The move comes as a way to free up a roster spot for defensive tackle Chris Jones. Armstead finishes his season with 21 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one forced fumble in eight games, including four starts. Rookie DeForest Buckner could now see an expanded role with Armstead out the remainder of the season.
Skov suffered a knee injury Sunday against the Dolphins, effectively ending his season. The 26-year-old played primarily on special teams this season, registering ten tackles on the year.
Dray was signed to replace Blake Bell (shoulder), who was placed on IR Monday. Likely the last option at tight end, behind Garrett Celek and Je'Ron Hamm, Dray is unlikely to have much of any fantasy impact in the final two weeks of the season.
Johnson wasn't certain to play at first due to a groin issue but ultimately suited up to compile four tackles and two deflected passes.
Blair said he dropped weight to increase his versatility on draft day as a potential outside linebacker. After going through the 49ers' offseason program, it sounds like the team wants to keep him as a defensive lineman. He doesn't project as a starter with the way the roster is currently constructed, but he could still see snaps given how often Chip Kelly's defenses are on the field.
The rookie wideout was buried on the depth chart for the majority of the season, but he saw more reps in the final weeks of the season once injuries took a toll on the 49ers' receiving corps. The lack of targets (eight over the last three weeks) make it hard to evaluate the 2015 Big Ten Receiver of the Year heading into next season. The 49ers' offseason moves will determine whether or not playing time will be available for Burbridge.
Smith ends his season with just 20 catches for 267 yards and three touchdowns. With him out for San Francisco's final two contests, Jeremy Kerley will move to the top of the team's depth chart at wide receiver.
The seventh-overall pick from this year's draft lived up to his expectations, putting up numbers you'd expect from a high-end defensive lineman in 15 games. It is even more impressive considering he plays defensive end in a 3-4 formation, a scheme that usually lends tackles to linebackers more than linemen. If Buckner can build off of his strong rookie campaign, we could be looking at the cornerstone of the 49ers' defense for years to come.
This announcement comes as no surprise after the 49ers announced that Bell was not going to play for the remainder of the season. Je'Rom Hamm and Garrett Celek are left as the only tight ends on San Francisco's active roster.
Bellore spent the majority of his six-year career as a special teams ace, but injuries created an opportunity for him to start. He ran with the opportunity, posting tackle totals that put him on the IDP map. The 27-year-old is set to hit free agency coming off of career-high marks, but his lack of coverage skills will likely land him back in a special team's role.
The 49ers bring in Jones to bolster their defensive line after Arik Armstead (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve. Jones has been around the league since he was drafted in 2013, but most recently played for the Dolphins, recording seven tackles in seven games before being cut on Nov. 7. The 26-year-old will compete for reps with backup defensive end Ronald Blair behind new starter DeForest Buckner.
Kilgore had surgery to repair his hamstring after he was placed on injured reserve a few weeks ago, and, though it'll take some time for him to recover, he claims that he'll be a full go come April, when the team's offseason program begins.
Hyde, Johnson and Brock were all ruled out for Saturday's game on the team's final report, but Brooks joins them on the inactive list after being deemed questionable. The team will have running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Michael Crabtree active for the game.
The 49ers are a 1-point favorite for the Saturday night showdown with the Chargers.
Frazier looked solid in extended action against Arizona, including a stretched out catch near the sideline. Frazier was one of Paxton Lynch's favorite targets while they were both playing at Memphis and Frazier could be a candidate for the practice squad so that he can try to develop in a similar way as former undrafted free agents Bennie Fowler and Jordan Taylor.
Harold was the early favorite to start in place of Lynch heading into training camp and he apparently did enough to not lose that right. He didn't record a sack in a limited role last season, so it is unlikely he will be able to replicate Lynch's pass-rushing prowess while he fills in for the suspended linebacker.
Dorsey was inactive for the 49ers' matchup with the Rams this past week, as he was dealing with some discomfort in his knee. However, he's slowly upped his workload in practice over the last few days, going through a limited practice Wednesday, before logging a full session Thursday. It appears he should be good to go moving forward, so look for him to jump back in as the team's starting nose tackle heading into a Week 17 tilt with the Seahawks.
Nelson, a restricted free agent prior to re-signing, played in all 16 games last season. He added four tackles on special teams.
The 28-year-old has spent time with the Chargers and Redskins prior to signing with the 49ers in 2014.
Gabbert was displaced as the starter after he posted a 5:6 TD:INT ratio in the first five weeks of the season. His 5.8 YPA was a big step back from last year's mark of 7.2, as he looked more like his Jacksonville form rather than last season's upward-trending version. While the passing stats were lacking, Gabbert did exhibit his ability to escape the pocket, scrambling for 173 yards and two touchdowns in his five starts. He enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, but he won't be more than a backup for any potential team he signs with.
Bradford was released by the Packers on Saturday. Since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2014 draft, he's appeared in just four games. He was signed shortly after the 49ers moved Nick Bellore (elbow) to IR, and Bradford is one of just three healthy inside linebackers on San Francisco's roster. He could see some immediate action in Week 16.
Davis was used to spell Carlos Hyde early in the season, but he failed to get much of anything going in the limited action he saw. The second-year back was eventually phased out of the offense completely in Week 9, and didn't even make an appearance in the final game of the season after Hyde had been placed on IR. Davis remains under contract through the 2018 season, but with only a fraction of his contract guaranteed, it wouldn't be surprising to see him released when roster cuts roll around next season.
Davis was carted off the field during the Niners' game against the Cardinals on Thursday and did not return. The specifics of his injury are unclear, however. JaCorey Shepherd was signed to take his place on the active roster.
Harper finished second in wide receiver targets and receptions Sunday. Despite getting some run in the second half of the season, the rookie wideout failed to make an impact in the fantasy game, finishing the season with 13 catches for 133 yards. The 49ers are devoid of talent at the wide receiver position, so the team may opt to bring him back for the 2017 season, but he would have to battle for a roster spot during training camp if they do.
An undisclosed injury ended Thomas' rookie campaign, and he'll be looking to stay healthy and make a roster in his second season. His ability to make the Cowboys' roster may come down to if he's able to contribute on special teams as well as provide depth at cornerback.
After linebacker Shayne Skov (knee) was placed on injured reserve, the 49ers promoted the safety they originally signed to the practice squad just a week ago. Ball is likely to compete with fellow safety Vinnie Sunseri for special teams reps behind starter Marcus Cromartie.
Streater spent the majority of the season as the 49ers' fourth or fifth receiver, but he saw a slightly expanded role down the stretch with 132 yards and two touchdowns in the final six games of the season. While there wasn't much there from a fantasy perspective, the veteran wideout showcased his plus size and athleticism for potential suitors this offseason. He would need to earn a starting job out of camp to land on fantasy radars.
Reaser played 48 snaps and recorded two tackles after taking over for the injured Ward on Sunday. The former's injury looked serious and he could miss extended time. If that's the case, then Reaser could be in line to start in his place.
Carradine had failed to record a statistic prior to exiting the contest. The severity of his injury is not known at this time. Eli Harold may see a bigger role providing outside linebacker depth in his absence.
Hodges was benched prior to last week's contest and both he and the team refused to comment on the nature of the offense. The one-week benching was all the punishment the veteran linebacker would receive as he was back in the starting lineup Saturday, leading the team in tackles. As long as he starts, Hodges is a great IDP option due to his propensity for racking up tackles.
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.
Brock had a strong 2015 season with 45 tackles and three interceptions. More importantly, he managed to stay relatively healthy after only playing in three games back in 2014. While the initial depth charts aren't set in stone, Brock appears to be a lock to start given his experience and recent production.
Expected to serve as San Francisco's No. 2 or 3 wideout, Ellington sprained an ankle a couple weeks ago, then injured his hamstring in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. He hasn't been ruled out for the year, making him a prime candidate to return from IR mid-season. Following offseason rule changes, each team can take one player off IR at any point in the season after Week 6. Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton figure to start at wide receiver, with Jeremy Kerley, DeAndrew White and others competing to fill out the depth chart.
Kerley looked like a shrewd low-price pickup early this season, but never really found much of a groove once Colin Kaepernick took over at quarterback, scoring just once in 11 games and never topping 71 yards with his new quarterback. The veteran still managed to garner career-highs in catches and targets and re-enters free agency as a solid complementary weapon.
Tartt was selected in the second round out of Samford, where he amassed 277 tackles with six interceptions in his college career. Davis was selected in the fourth round and rushed for 2,440 yards and 22 touchdowns on 454 carries in his college career.
Bethea had a renaissance year for the 49ers, finishing above 100 tackles for the first time since 2013. Never known for his ball-hawking abilities, the veteran safety brings value through his ability to rack up tackles. The increased tackle total can be attributed to good health (started all 16 games) and opposing teams running the ball heavily against San Francisco. Barring major offseason changes, the 49ers are likely to face a barrage of runs again next season, making Bethea a quality IDP target.
Kaepernick threaded the needle to tight end Garrett Celek for a nine-yard score late in the fourth quarter, bringing the 49ers' upset bid within a score. It was an either wise efficient yet unspectacular outing for Kaepernick, which can be said for much of his season. The dual threat set career marks in touchdown:interception ratio (4:1) and yards per carry (6.8), but managed to pilot just one win as a starter for an oft-anemic San Francisco team. With change at the top likely for the 49ers, Kaepernick will quite possibly be another coach's project to try to retool in 2017.
Harris finishes his 2016 campaign with 253 all-purpose yards and one touchdown while serving as a backup for the 49ers. The soon-to-be free agent's size and running style isn't suited to take on anything other than a change-of-pace role, so there is a decent chance the team brings him back to serve in a similar role behind Carlos Hyde next season.
Those on the offensive side of the ball are wide receivers Emory Blake, Austin Franklin and Justin Veltung, linemen Sean Hooey, Mitchell Van Dyk, Travis Bond and Brandon Washington, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and tight end Brad Smelley.
Defenders now gone are linemen Kourtnei Brown, Matt Conrath and Deantre Harlan, defensive backs Christian Bryant, Darren Woodard, Avery Cunningham and Greg Reid and linebackers Aaron Hill, Etienne Sabino, Phillip Seward and Lawrence Wilson.
The Rams also placed wideout Stedman Bailey on the reserved/suspended list.
Reid was declared out for the season after tearing his biceps in Week 11. He started in each of the 49ers' first ten games this season, accumulating 81 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble. Second-year safety Jaquiski Tartt will likely take over for Reid at free safety.
The only new point of emphasis here is that Ward is dealing with a broken collarbone, whereas his previous injury designation given by the team was simply a shoulder issue. He'll be done the for the season nonetheless, with Keith Reaser and JaCorey Shepherd likely benefiting from added playing time in the final two weeks of the season.
Removed from Week 15 due to an ankle injury, Martin didn't make another appearance the rest of the way and eventually landed on IR in order to open up a roster spot for reserve RB Raheem Mostert.
Redmond was elected to return from IR as he was working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered in 2015. However, the team decided to not activate the cornerback to the 53-man roster, meaning he will remain on the IR for the remainder of the season. The rookie will shift his focus to returning to the field completely healthy next year as Jimmie Ward and Tramaine Brock will continue to to start at cornerback this season.
Tartt got the start in place of the injured Eric Reid (biceps) and took full advantage of the opportunity. While his coverage skills will need work, Tartt has undeniable athleticism, making him a candidate to rack up tackles so long as he continues to start.
Dial appears ready to return to game action in Week 15 against the Falcons after missing Sunday's loss to the Jets. He'll provide depth at defensive end behind Chris Jones and DeForest Buckner.
While never spectacular, Brooks continues to turn in solid seasons from a statistical standpoint, offering a good mix of tackles and sacks that keep him IDP-relevant. The 32-year-old was relied upon heavily as the team was struck with injuries at the linebacker position. Brooks remains under contract for next season and would fit the team's need for a versatile outside linebacker. Due to his rising age and salary, there is always a chance the 49ers opt to cut him to move towards younger options through the draft or free agency. If that were to happen, Brooks would need to land a starting job in a 3-4 system to retain IDP value.
Ponder has spent the entire regular season as the 49ers' inactive third quarterback. With the club receiving inconsistent play under center between Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert, the coaching staff may be inching towards giving the former first-rounder a look in the final game or two. No official change has been announced, but if Ponder were to receive playing time, he would be a low-upside fantasy option due to his reputation as a "game manager."
