49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Greenlaw was donning a blue non-contact jersey, but his return to the field indicates that he has been cleared from the concussion protocol. Assuming there are no setbacks, the 23-year-old will start at the Sam linebacker position and see 30-50 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Greenlaw's IDP value will be suppressed in his current role, but he would gain value if he is asked to fill in for Fred Warner (reserve/COVID-19) to start the season.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Greenlaw is in concussion protocol, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's unclear how Greenlaw suffered the head injury, but he'll have to gain clearance from an independent league doctor before returning to the field. It's too early to rule out Greenlaw for the 49ers' Week 1 tilt, but Mark Nzeocha would be in line for an expanded role at linebacker should Greenlaw sit out.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Strong rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw had 92 tackles (64 solo), a sack and an interception in 16 games this season.

Greenlaw won the starting Sam linebacker job out of camp, and he saw his role increased when Kwon Alexander went down for the regular season in Week 9. The fifth-round pick showed excellent athleticism and ability to close out on ball carriers quickly, putting that ability on display when he stopped Seattle's tight end, Jacob Hollister, on the goal line as time expired in Week 17 to win the NFC West for the 49ers. If both Fred Warner and Alexander are healthy to begin the 2020 season, then Greenlaw will shift back to the less-prominent strong-side role, which would limit his ADP appeal.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Leads team in tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw made 13 tackles (four solo) in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Rams.

It was a season-high tackle total for Greenlaw. He's up to 79 (53 solo) on the year.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Records six tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw logged six tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

The tackle number marks Greenlaw's lowest since taking over for Kwon Alexander (pectoral) in Week 10. He's put up 47 (30 solo) in those six games but hasn't made many big plays, with no sacks, one interception and two pass breakups in that span.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Adds eight tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw registered eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 37-8 win over the Packers.

Greenlaw has racked up eight or more tackles and played at least 94 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps in three consecutive games. He should remain busy against MVP front-runner Lamar Jackson and the Ravens in Week 13.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Career high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw recorded 10 tackles during Monday's 36-26 victory over the Cardinals.

That's a new career high in tackles for the fifth-round rookie out of Arkansas. Seeing heavy playing time over the past two weeks, has Greenlaw racked up 20 tackles and one interception. He should have plenty of opportunity to keep it up with former starting linebacker Kwon Alexander (pectoral) on injured reserve.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Records interception Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw logged eight tackles (three solo) and recorded and interception in Monday night's loss to the Seahawks.

For a moment, it looked like Greenlaw would play the hero as he picked off Russell Wilson with a fingertip catch at the 49er four-yard line as the Seahawks threatened to end the game in overtime. Although it didn't work out that way, the 22-year-old still came up big in his first start since taking over for Kwon Alexander (pectoral), who's out for the year, setting season-highs in tackles and snaps in addition to the clutch play.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Set for increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw is likely to start at weakside linebacker going forward with Kwon Alexander (pectoral) done for the season, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Greenlaw made four solo tackles during Thursday's 28-25 win over the Cardinals, in addition to notching his first sack of the year. The rookie fifth-round pick has played a starting role in base defensive formations this season, and he stands to see a sharp uptick in snaps going forward. Heading into a favorable Week 10 matchup against Seattle's formidable rushing attack, Greenlaw is worth monitoring in IDP formats.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Prospects for starting looking good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw projects to be the 49ers' starting strong outside linebacker following the release of Malcolm Smith on Tuesday.

Greenlaw was primarily competing with Smith for the starting linebacker job this preseason, so the latter's release all but confirms that the job is the rookie's to lose. The 2019 fifth-round pick impressed early in camp and during the preseason, displaying his plus athleticism when given opportunities to play with the first-team defense in place of Kwon Alexander (knee), who was being eased back into action following knee surgery. Even if Greenlaw ends up starting, he will only be used in base 4-3 formations, which will limit his snap count and tackle totals compared to starters Fred Warner and the aforementioned Alexander.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw (stinger) tallied five tackles (two solo) in Monday's preseason win over Denver.

Greenlaw suffered the minor injury during practice this week, but he was deemed healthy enough to compete Monday. The rookie got some run with the first-team defense, as Kwon Alexander (knee) continues to be rested heading toward the regular season. Greenlaw's true competition is Malcolm Smith, as the two battle for the less-prominent starting strong linebacker position this year.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Nursing stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greenlaw was limited to just individual drills during Wednesday's practice as he nurses a stinger, Nick Wagoner of reports.

It's unclear how he picked up the injury, but the team is likely giving him a chance to recover following the first preseason game. The Arkansas product was selected in the fifth-round during April's draft, and is looking to secure not only a roster spot, but a prominent role in the defense. Expect the team to continue to update Greenlaw's status as his health progresses.

49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Heading to Bay Area
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers selected Greenlaw in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 148th overall.

The Arkansas product heads to the Bay Area after a productive four-year career with the Razorbacks. Greenlaw was recruited as a safety and is somewhat undersized for a linebacker at 5-foot-11 and 237 pounds, but he has good instincts and can help in coverage as well. He will likely begin his career as a special teamer.
