Celek caught two of his four targets for 67 yards and his third touchdown of the season in Sunday's 26-16 victory over the Texans.
Celek did the majority of his damage on a 61-yard catch and run in the third quarter, the longest reception of his career. Jimmy Garoppolo rewarded his tight end at the end of the drive with a well-placed toss that Celek corralled for his third touchdown of the season. The 29-year-old has now scored three touchdowns in three consecutive seasons despite starting each year behind a younger, more athletic tight end on the depth chart. Perhaps the 49ers should consider featuring "Old Reliable" more often than they have been during his time in San Francisco. They may already be heading in that direction based on the fact that Celek has received more targets and receptions than rookie George Kittle over the past two weeks. That said, there is still a clear timeshare regarding tight end snaps, and fullback Kyle Juszczyk's presence in the short-yardage passing game (four targets Sunday) also eats into Celek's potential fantasy value.
Witherspoon suffered a knee injury in Sunday's 26-16 win over the Texans, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Witherspoon had three tackles (two solo) prior to exiting, and will undergo an MRI exam Monday to determine the severity of the injury. The rookie third-round pick could be forced to miss some time, which would force the 49ers to make a decision as the regular season begins to enter it's final stages.
Godowin caught six of 12 passes for 106 yards in Sunday's 26-16 win over Houston.
Goodwin has been the biggest beneficiary of Jimmy Garoppolo's insertion under center, as the speedy wide receiver has compiled 14 catches for 205 yards in Garoppolo's two starts after snagging a combined 27 balls in his first 11 games this season. If he's still available on your waiver wire, teams in need of receiving help should give Goodwin serious consideration for the stretch run.
Breida rushed 12 times for 27 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 26-16 win over the Texans.
Breida got 12 carries for the second consecutive game, finishing just two attempts shy of starter Carlos Hyde's 14 on the ground. Hyde showed why he's the clear-cut No.1 option in this backfield, gaining 51 more rushing yards than Breida while also finding paydirt from two yards out.
Hyde rushed 14 times for 78 yards and a touchdown while failing to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 26-16 win over Houston.
The highlight of Hyde's afternoon was his first touchdown since Week 6. He was originally bottled up down the middle on that play, but bounced it outside for a two-yard score to make it 10-3 just before the two-minute warning in the first half. San Francisco has won consecutive road games with Jimmy Garoppolo under center, so Hyde's workload should remain lofty at home next week against the Titans.
