Player Outlook
Because Gray was a third-round pick last year, is still just 24 years old, and plays for the unpredictable Kyle Shanahan, you should make a strong effort to hold on to Gray in Dynasty leagues throughout the 2023 season. In redraft, Gray is the type of player who should be on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues. A strong training camp and an injury to Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk could change that. Gray has big-play ability, averaging 16.4 yards per catch his final year at SMU, and Shanahan's offense produces outlier seasons, so if he gets on the field there is a chance Gray splashes.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Headed for IR

    Gray (shoulder) will be placed on injured reserve Thursday and will miss a minimum of four games, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The earliest he can make his 2023 debut is Week 5 against Dallas on Oct. 8. Until then, Jauan Jennings won't have much competition for the No. 3 receiver gig, though that role is de-emphasized in a 49ers offense that often uses a fullback and sometimes a second tight end. With fellow depth wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud (wrist) also out for the start of the season, seventh-round rookie Ronnie Bell could get some snaps off the bench early on in 2023.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Sprains shoulder

    Gray has a sprained joint in his right shoulder, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports. Gray injured his shoulder during San Francisco's win versus the Broncos on Saturday and will now likely miss the start of the season. The 2022 third-round pick could now find his roster spot in jeopardy as he only caught one pass on seven targets for 10 yards during his rookie season

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: May have suffered collarbone injury

    Gray (shoulder) will have additional testing done to determine if he suffered a collarbone injury, Nick Wagoner of reports. Gray exited Saturday's 21-20 preseason win over the Broncos early with a shoulder injury and initial X-rays were unclear, so the wide receiver will undergo more testing to determine the severity. The wide receiver is competing for a final roster spot, and a prolonged absence would likely end his chances.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Exits with shoulder injury

    Gray (shoulder) exited Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos and will not return, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Gray wasn't targeted before leaving in the first half. After playing just 85 offensive snaps as a rookie last season, Gray is competing for a roster spot this summer. Missing time with an injury won't help his cause.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Rarely sees field in rookie year

    Gray finished his rookie campaign with one reception (seven targets) for 10 yards and one rush for nine yards in the regular season. Gray logged just 85 offensive snaps across 13 active games, failing to crack the regular rotation even in relief of injured starters. Head coach Kyle Shanahan drew up a couple of gadget plays for his third-round wideout, but he didn't trust the rookie in meaningful moments this season. Perhaps Gray sees more usage in his sophomore campaign, but he will have to fight up several spots on the receiver depth chart during training camp to be worth monitoring in fantasy.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Considered day-to-day

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Gray (hamstring) is considered day-to-day, Nick Wagoner of reports. Gray suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of Thursday's 21-13 win over Seattle and didn't return. However, he appears to have avoided a significant injury and could return to action in Week 16. The rookie third-round pick has made 10 appearances this season, securing just one of seven targets for 10 yards across 62 offensive snaps.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Questionable to return Thursday

    Gray is questionable to return to Thursday Night Football against Seattle with a hamstring injury, Nick Wagoner of reports. Gray appears to have injured his hamstring during the second half, though it's unclear when or how this injury occurred. The rookie third-rounder made the first catch of his career during last week's 35-7 win over Tampa Bay, and he's seen sparse usage over nine games this season. With Gray sidelined for the time being, expect Willie Snead to step up into a bigger role after being elevated from the practice squad for Thursday's divisional matchup.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Makes first career reception

    Gray played 13 of the 49ers' 59 snaps on offense and finished with one catch for 10 yards on his lone target in Sunday's 35-7 win over the Buccaneers. After failing to haul in any of the six targets he drew over his eight NFL games, Gray finally came through with a reception in garbage time of the Week 14 contest. With Deebo Samuel (knee/ankle) exiting the contest with an injury that is expected to sideline him for around three weeks, Gray will be in line to suit up for Thursday's game in Seattle, but the rookie out of SMU isn't guaranteed to take on a major role. Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings and Ray-Ray McCloud are likely to serve as the 49ers' preferred wideout trio, and head coach Kyle Shanahan could also hand more reps to fullback Kyle Juszczyk or feature more two-tight end sets while Samuel is sidelined.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Records limited practice Thursday

    Gray (ankle) managed to log a limited practice Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Gray rolled his ankle ahead of the 49ers' Week 10 matchup with the Chargers and was unable to play. The receiver has yet to see double-digit snaps this season, so expect his role to remain limited even if the rookie is healthy.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Hurts ankle in warmups

    Coach Kyle Shanahan revealed after Sunday's 22-16 win over the Chargers that Gray rolled his ankle in pregame warm-ups, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Gray wasn't targeted in the game, though the rookie wasn't expected to play a significant role even when healthy. His practice participation will be worth monitoring ahead of the 49ers' Week 11 trip to Arizona for MNF.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Inactive Sunday

    Gray (coach's decision) will not play Sunday against the Falcons, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Gray was dealing with an illness earlier this week but he did clear his injury designation Thursday. However, the rookie receiver will give way to the veteran Willie Snead against the Falcons.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Limited Wednesday

    Gray was limited during Wednesday's practice due to an illness, Nick Wagoner of reports. Gray returned to action in Week 5 following a one-game absence due to a hip injury but failed to haul in either of his targets across seven offensive snaps. It appears the depth wideout has moved past the hip issue completely, but his availability for Week 6 may be impacted by his current aliment. He'll have two more opportunities to log a full practice before the team has to make a decision on his status for Sunday's contest against the Falcons.

    Gray (hip) failed to haul in either of his targets in Sunday's 37-15 win over Carolina. Gray returned from a hip injury and logged seven offensive snaps while operating as the 49ers' fifth wideout. The deep threat has failed to catch any of his four targets in the three games he has been active for this season.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Not playing Monday

    Gray (hip) is listed as inactive Monday against the Rams, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. This more or less was expected after Gray didn't practice during Week 4 prep and was deemed doubtful to play. With the rookie third-round pick sidelined, Jauan Jennings, Ray-Ray McCloud, Willie Snead and Malik Turner will be the 49ers' available wide receivers behind top options Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Not likely against Rams

    Gray (hip) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Rams, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Gray was unable to practice at all during the week, so it's likely he will miss the 49ers' Week 4 divisional showdown. He has been active for two of three games to this point and played a combined 13 offensive snaps while commanding two targets.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Dealing with hip injury

    Gray didn't practice Thursday due to a hip issue, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. During the portion of Thursday's session open to the media, Gray wasn't taking part while wearing a sleeve on his right leg, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Now that the reason for his absence is known, Gray's status bears monitoring ahead of Monday's game against the Rams. If he's able to play, the rookie third-round pick still is in search of his first career catch.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Totals 24 yards in preseason win

    Gray recorded two receptions on four targets for 24 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Vikings. Gray drew the second target of the game for San Francisco and tallied receptions of nine and 15 yards. The rookie third-round pick also converted a two-point conversion to put the 49ers up by seven early in the fourth quarter. Gray should be locked into a roster spot but is fighting for a regular role among the team's receiving corps.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Dealing with pair of injuries

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Gray will miss a few days due to hip and back soreness, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Gray broke loose for a 76-yard touchdown down the left sideline during Friday's preseason win against the Packers, connecting with Trey Lance in the process. Overall, Gray hauled in two of four targets for 99 yards and the score. That said, the rookie third-round pick emerged with a pair of health concerns, which could impact his availability for upcoming joint practices with the Vikings and next Saturday's exhibition in Minnesota.

  • 49ers' Danny Gray: Scores 76-yard touchdown Friday

    Gray secured two of four targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' 28-21 preseason win over the Packers on Friday night. Gray's yardage total paced the 49ers' pass catchers on the night, and he also recorded a game-long reception when he hauled in a 76-yard touchdown pass from Trey Lance late in the first quarter. The rookie third-round pick's 4.3 speed was evident on the splash play, and Gray will continue his bid to secure a potential No. 3 or No. 4 receiver role during a road preseason clash against the Vikings a week from Saturday night.
