Player Outlook
Uness you have a dedicated FB roster spot or scoring bonus, you can leave Juszczyk on the waiver wire. He's likely to score a couple of touchdowns at some point, and he may even have a four-catch game, but we'll have no idea when it is coming.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Makes impact play Sunday

    Juszczyk had one carry for three yards and caught two of three targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 34-31 win over Detroit in the NFC Championship Game. Juszcyzk made a rare splash in the box score, with his 23-yard reception helping to spark a stagnant offense that trailed by 14 points to the Lions in the first quarter. The versatile fullback finished the contest playing 61 percent of the snaps on offense with three combined touches, a stark uptick from the zero touches and 41 percent share he handled against Green Bay in the divisional round the week prior. Juszczyk could have a play or two drawn up for him in the upcoming Super Bowl LVIII matchup against the Chiefs on Feb. 11, but his fantasy limitations at the fullback position kills any potential appeal.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Gets green light

    Juszczyk (illness) will play in Sunday's game against the Rams, Lindsey Pallares of the 49ers' official site reports. Juszczyk's status was up in the air due to an illness, but he will ultimately play through it. Look for him to take on his usual responsibilities at fullback assuming he avoids any setbacks.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Late addition to injury report

    Juszczyk (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Juszczyk was added to Saturday's injury report after picking up an illness. With San Francisco locked into the top seed in the NFC, the team could elect to sit the 11-year fullback out of Harvard. Juszczyk has five rushes for six yards in addition to 14 catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns over 16 games this season.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Goes untargeted in win

    Juszczyk didn't draw a target while playing 22 of the 49ers' 59 snaps on offense in Sunday's 42-19 win over the Eagles. Though he's never been an overly prominent part of the passing game since joining the 49ers ahead of the 2017 season, Juszczyk has nonetheless seen his involvement as a receiver take a hit in his seventh season in San Francisco. After clearing 200 receiving yards in each of the previous six campaigns, Juszczyk is well behind that pace thus far in 2023, having recorded eight receptions for 65 yards and two scores through 14 games. The 32-year-old is unlikely to see his playing time take a substantial hit while his role in the passing attack declines, as he's still valued for his skills as a pass protector and as a lead blocker in front of Christian McCaffrey.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Catches second TD of season

    Juszczyk had two receptions on three targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Jaguars. Juszczyk hit pay dirt for the second time this season when he broke loose across the middle and took a well-placed pass from Brock Purdy to the house. The 22-yard reception also represented a new season high for the versatile fullback. Juice has now scored 21 total touchdowns over his impressive career, but the lack of a fullback position in fantasy lineups eliminates any potential for value.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Hauls in lone target

    Juszczyk reeled in his lone target for a nine-yard reception in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Browns. Juszczyk went without a target or carry in the 49ers' first two games, but he's since seen his touches tick up a bit over the last four contests. After recording four catches in the 49ers' 42-10 drubbing of the Cowboys in Week 5, the fullback took a step back in terms of involvement Sunday but still tied for his longest gain of the season. Even with halfback Christian McCaffrey (oblique/ribs) potentially at risk of missing Monday's game at Minnesota, Juszczyk isn't expected to be a major beneficiary. Juszczyk will continue to bring most of his value to the San Francisco offense as a blocker rather than as a runner or receiver.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Another Pro Bowl season

    Juszczyk carried once for three yards and recorded a 26-yard reception in Sunday's 38-13 win over the Cardinals. The fullback finished the regular season with 26 rushing yards and a touchdown to go with 200 receiving yards and another score across 16 games. His contributions as a pass catcher and as a pivotal blocker in the run game earned Juszczyk his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl nod. Juszczyk is under contract with San Francisco through 2025, and though he's viewed as a critical piece in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme, the 31-year-old offers minimal value to fantasy managers.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Two catches in win

    Juszczyk recorded two receptions for two yards while playing 30 of the 49ers' 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 13-0 win over the Saints. Though he wasn't able to do much with his pair of catches, Juszczyk was at least able to end a two-game drought without a target. The 31-year-old continues to enjoy fairly steady usage relative to most fullbacks around the league, but he doesn't get enough touches on a weekly basis to attract much interest even in deeper fantasy formats.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Full practice participant Wednesday

    Juszczyk (finger) logged a full practice session Wednesday. Juszczyk suffered a finger injury Week 7 against the Chiefs and was forced to sit out a Week 8 win over the Rams. However, the 49ers' Week 9 bye gave the fullback time to get healthy, and he appears on track to return to action against the Chargers on Sunday night.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Won't play Sunday

    Juszczyk (finger) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. As expected, Juszczyk won't play Sunday after undergoing surgery to repair a broken finger on his right hand earlier in the week. While the fullback isn't a prolific producer, his blocking prowess will certainly be missed during a divisional showdown against Los Angeles.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Likely out Week 8

    Juszczyk underwent surgery on his broken right finger Monday and probably won't play against the Rams in Week 8, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Juszczyk broke his finger in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, but he still managed to return and finish out the remainder of this contest. The 31-year-old fullback has caught 11 of his 15 targets for 153 yards and recorded three rushes for 10 yards and a touchdown this season, though his biggest impact has come as a blocker in the 49ers' running game. Juszczyk's participation in practice Wednesday should shed more light on his availability against the Rams on Sunday.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Suffers finger injury in loss

    Juszczyk suffered a broken right ring finger in Sunday's 44-23 loss to the Chiefs, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Juszczyk briefly exited the contest in the third quarter but returned to record two receptions for 17 yards in the fourth quarter. The fullback will have surgery to insert a pin in his finger this week but plans on playing with a splint in Week 8 against the Rams. His status is worth monitoring moving forward, but he appears likely to play through the injury.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Notches two receptions Week 5

    Juszczyk hauled in two targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 37-15 win over the Panthers. The fullback played more than 50 percent of the 49ers' offensive snaps for the fourth straight game and set a new season high with the two receptions. Though he touches the ball more than most fullbacks around the NFL, Juszczyk's role is still too small for him to make a significant imprint on the box score on a game-by-game basis. He's best viewed as little more than a punt-play option on a showdown slate for a DFS contest rather than someone worth considering in weekly lineups in redraft leagues.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Scores on short TD plunge

    Juszczyk recorded one yard and a touchdown on two carries and failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seahawks. With top back Elijah Mitchell (knee) out of the lineup Week 2, Juszczyk only saw a small uptick in offensive usage, playing 50 percent of the snaps against the Seahawks after checking in at 37 percent in the Week 1 loss to the Bears. No. 2 back Tyrion Davis-Price (ankle) suffered an injury Sunday that will likely sideline him for several weeks, but Juszczyk is unlikely to be a major beneficiary, as the 49ers are instead expected to promote Marlon Mack from the practice squad to have him or undrafted rookie Jordan Mason settle in as the primary backup to Jeff Wilson while Mitchell resides on IR. The 30-year-old fullback is instead expected to continue in his usual role as a lead blocker and occasional short-area target in the passing game.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Options picked up

    The 49ers have picked up Juszczyk's option for the 2023 through 2025 seasons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Juszczyk has been with the 49ers for the past five years, and now he's on track to remain with the club for the next four seasons. The 30-year-old appeared in all 17 games last year and rushed eight times for 22 yards and a touchdown while securing 30 of 38 targets for 296 yards and a score.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Posts 318 combined yards this year

    Juszczyk finished the 2021 regular season with 22 rushing yards, 296 receiving yards and two combined touchdowns across 17 games. Juszczyk turned in another All-Pro level season as one of the most versatile fullbacks in the league. As usual, that production did not translate into fantasy value, as his current role on offense doesn't generate enough touches. Juice is under contract until 2025, so he will be paving paths for Elijah Mitchell and Co. in 2022.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Posts 35 yards receiving in loss

    Juszczyk rushed once for no gain and caught three of four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Cardinals. Juszczyk continues to fill a valuable role for San Francisco in the absence of injured running backs and tight ends. This time he took on a larger receiving role while George Kittle (calf) mends on IR for at least three games. Juice is clearly the best fullback in the league, but his lack of a true fantasy position limits his utility.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Catches one pass

    Juszczyk secured his lone target for seven yards during Sunday's 41-33 win over the Lions. The 30-year-old played 36 percent of the team's offensive snaps and didn't earn any touches or looks beyond the lone target. Even with Raheem Mostert (knee) set to miss the rest of the season, Juszczyk isn't expected to see much of a spike in carries and will remain a peripheral option in the passing game.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Staying in SF on five-year deal

    Juszczyk signed a five-year, $27 million contract to remain with the 49ers on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Widely regarded as the best fullback in the league, Juszczyk will be paid like it. Keeping the versatile weapon in the fold was a priority for the 49ers given how important Juszczyk is as a blocker, pass catcher and short-yardage runner, and the two sides were finally able to hammer out a deal just before free agency opened up.

  • 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Musters up 29 yards

    Juszczyk rushed twice for four yards and caught one of two targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 41-33 loss to the Cowboys. Juszczyk now has 61 yards and two touchdowns on the ground and a 16-188-2 line through the air. In turn, he's been named to a fifth straight Pro Bowl.
