Eric Reid: Slated for Cincy visit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid is scheduled to visit with the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A 2013 first-round pick, Reid averaged 63.8 tackles and 2.0 interceptions in five seasons with the 49ers, primarily serving as the team's top free safety (69 starts in 70 games). He did operate as a strong safety and nickel linebacker for part of last season, likely making him more attractive to a Bengals team that already has George Iloka locked in as its long-time starting free safety. Shawn Williams (back) also has been solid at the other safety spot, but his absence from five games last season exposed a thin depth chart. Reid believes NFL owners are hesitant to sign him, seemingly because he's best known to casual fans as the first player to take a knee alongside Colin Kaepernick during the national anthem.

49ers' Eric Reid: Turns in another solid season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid tallied 67 tackles (53 solo) along with a pair of interceptions through 13 games this season.

While the totals look like just another consistent year from the veteran, it was anything but. The 49ers' new regime had phased out veteran NaVorro Bowman, and appeared to be doing the same to Reid when they didn't give him his starting safety job back upon return from a minor knee injury. Instead, he was moved to outside linebacker in order to remain on the field, an adjustment that Reid stated his displeasure for, but made anyways. Then Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt both got shut down due to injuries of their own, so the 26-year-old ended up getting his starting strong safety job back after all, albeit in a slightly awkward and forced scenario. That treatment may affect Reid's judgement on whether or not he will return to the 49ers when he hits free agency this offseason. Wherever he lands, Reid has proven to be a solid source of tackles so long as he is a starting safety in the NFL.

49ers' Eric Reid: Records eight tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid picked eight tackles (six solo) in the 49ers' 25-23 victory over the Titans on Sunday.

Reid's tackle total was his most since Week 8. He was also one of four 49ers defenders to see all 64 snaps. The 26-year-old strong safety figures to be in line for another heavy workload in Week 16 against the Jaguars.

49ers' Eric Reid: Leads team in snaps and tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid was on the field for all 67 of the 49ers' defensive snaps Sunday, finishing with a team high seven tackles (all solo) in a loss to the Seahawks.

The veteran safety tallied seven solo tackles for the second consecutive week after failing to top four in any game prior to Nov. 12. With both Jimmie Ward (forearm) and Jaquiski Tartt (forearm) down for the year, Reid has absorbed the majority of the tackles vacated by his fellow safeties and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

49ers' Eric Reid: Returns to starting safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reid played all 77 of the 49ers' defensive snaps at safety Sunday, finishing with four tackles (two solo) and an interception in a 20-10 loss to Arizona.

San Francisco's project of moving Reid to linebacker lasted just under two weeks after he was forced back to the secondary following Jimmie Ward's placement on IR. The team lost another starting safety for the year in Jaquiski Tartt (wrist) on Sunday, so the veteran appears set to finish out the year at his natural position. Reid's first interception of the season saved what would have been a vanilla IDP performance, but fantasy owners can expect slightly increased tackle totals now that his role and playing time are etched in stone moving forward.
