Savage signed with San Francisco early this week, and appears to have been nothing more than a quarterback for the scout team, though he could still re-sign with the team at some point. Nick Mullens remains entrenched as the C.J. Beathard's backup for the 49ers, as Savage looks for his next opportunity.
Wilson was the last running back to enter the contest, but he was also the only runner to average a minimum of four yards per carry. That said, the undrafted rookie appears to be low in the pecking order in the 49ers' third running back competition, but he can certainly elevate his status with a strong showing in the final two weeks of the preseason.
Celek has gone without a catch for two consecutive weeks, but he could see an expanded role Monday if fellow tight end George Kittle suffers any sort of setback to his injured knee.
Mabin missed each of the last two games with a calf injury. However, his full participation in practice Wednesday puts him in line to return for the season finale Sunday against the Rams.
Taylor was listed as doubtful with the injury ahead of the 49ers' Week 6 matchup with the Packers before ultimately being inactive for the contest, so the fact that he's considered questionable for Week 7 suggests he's taken a step forward in his recovery from the back injury. If cleared to suit up Sunday, Taylor would likely retain his usual duties in the slot, where he forged a quality connection with quarterback C.J. Beathard his last time out. In the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, Taylor set season highs across the board with seven catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on eight targets.
Harris has spent all season on injured reserve, and the rookie's return to practice opens his window to be activated from IR. If Harris is eventually activated to the 53-man roster, the first game he'll be eligible to play will be Week 9 against the Raiders.
Bourne was elevated to third on the receiving depth chart with both Trent Taylor (back) and Dante Pettis (knee) sitting out Monday's contest. Despite the increased role, the 23-year-old saw fewer targets than either of his previous two games (four and seven, respectively) when he served as the 49ers' fourth receiver. Bourne does have two touchdowns on the year, but his sporadic target share keeps him off the fantasy radar for the time being.
Lee made his first start with the 49ers with several linebackers held out of action. The 22-year-old performed admirably in a pinch, but his role is set to be reduced with Reuben Foster returning from suspension next week. Lee could still start right outside linebacker if Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is unable to go, but he would likely come off the field in nickel and dime packages, limiting his IDP appeal.
Just a day after being waived by the 49ers, Wick will apparently stick around with the club without being part of the 53-man roster. Should injuries arise on the 53-man roster, Wick would likely be one of the first options to rejoin it.
Staley was a limited participant in Friday's and Saturday's practices. As he did in Week 5, Staley will be able to play through his knee injury. He will get the start at left tackle.
Person was limited in practice this week but will suit up Monday night. The 30-year-old should fill his normal role as San Francisco's starting right guard.
Matt Breida (ankle) surprisingly was able to start Week 6's loss to the Packers despite carrying a doubtful tag, but even more surprisingly, Raheem Mostert (12 carries for 87 yards) served as the 49ers' primary backup. Despite last week's usage, Kyle Shanahan did not commit to Mostert overtaking Morris on the depth chart, stating that "I don't think it was a permanent change. It was what we thought was best for that game." This is about as positive as a statement Morris' owners could hear after the back received no carries against the Packers. Fantasy owners should still take a wait-and-see approach against the Rams on Sunday, especially if Breida (limited practice Thursday) is able to suit up.
Breida has proven to be a fast healer this season, playing at a high level while nursing a variety of injuries. The bigger concern for him than the shoulder or ankle issue is a Week 7 matchup and the undefeated Rams that could force San Francisco to abandon its rushing attack late in the game. The Rams have surrendered 4.7 yards per carry to opposing running backs, but touchdowns (three) and volume (18.8 carries per game) have been hard to come by. It remains to be seen if Raheem Mostert or Alfred Morris will serve as Breida's top complement.
Goodwin did damage from distance, scoring from 67 and 30 yards on his two touchdowns Monday. The shifty wideout comfortably led San Fransisco in receiving yards, which came after he mustered just 54 yards through his first three games. With firepower lacking in the 49ers passing attack, Goodwin will aim to keep the big plays coming, although a matchup versus the Rams on Sunday should temper expectations.
Powell was waived by San Francisco earlier this month and has since been on the team's practice squad. The 49ers required additional depth in the secondary with Jimmie Ward (hamstring) doubtful and K'Waun Williams (shoulder, Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) and Richard Sherman (calf) listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Flynn is now stuck on IR through the end of the league year, barring an injury settlement.
Marsh is expected to be used as a pass-rush specialist and special teams contributor with the 49ers after inking a two-year extension this past offseason. The 24-year-old recorded three sacks in a similar role with both the Patriots and 49ers in 2017.
Gould bounced back in a big way after missing his lone field-goal attempt last week against the Cardinals. The 35-year-old is now 13-for-14 (93 percent) on field-goal tries this season. The 49ers offense has looked surprisingly dynamic under backup quarterback C.J. Beathard over the last three weeks, which bodes well for Gould's prospects as a fantasy option moving forward.
Sherman practiced in limited fashions Wednesday and Thursday. The former Seahawk had a quiet game last Monday against the Packers, recording just one tackle over 69 snaps. If Sherman misses time Sunday, Jimmie Ward could see more snaps.
Jones suffered a knee injury during Week 8's loss to the Eagles, and while it wasn't serious enough to land him on IR, he has already been ruled out for Week 9. The 49ers will either turn to their practice squad or free agency to fill his depth role on the defensive line.
Bolden made his 2018 debut after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season. The speedy wideout appeared to have scored the first touchdown of his career on a quick strike from C.J. Beathard, but replay review showed that he was touched down at the one-yard line. Bolden's four targets ranked fourth amongst San Francisco wideouts, but his role is likely to diminish once Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and/or Dante Pettis (knee) return from injury.
Williams didn't practice Wednesday but squeezed in a limited practice Thursday. Including Williams, San Francisco has four defensive backs on the injury report. If the Pittsburgh product is unable to play Sunday, Jimmie Ward or Greg Mabin could see increased work.
Armstead had been sidelined for the past three weeks with a hamstring injury, but his return puts him back on track to start the regular season healthy. The 24-year-old should start opposite Solomon Thomas at defensive end this year, but he could find himself subbed out on passing downs due to his lack of pass-rush ability (just six sacks over first three seasons).
The 49ers declined the fifth-year team option on Tomlinson's contract in early May, but as Friday's extension indicates, they still view him as a starting offensive lineman. However, the team apparently didn't feel that Tomlinson was worth the $9.6 million he otherwise would have been owed under the previous terms. Regardless, the 2015 first-rounder is now set to stick around in San Francisco through the 2021 campaign.
Exum would start in place of Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder), who is considered doubtful for Week 4. Tartt sat out last week's loss to the Chiefs, and Exum recorded a strong nine tackles in his absence then. The 2014 sixth-round pick holds some IDP relevance as long as he continues to start.
Blair -- who was recently reinstated from injured reserve -- was filling in for Solomon Thomas (knee), who was a late scratch Sunday. The 24-year-old responded with the best performance of his young career. While the upcoming bye week should afford Thomas enough time to be ready for Week 12's matchup against Seattle, Blair's impressive showing could keep him in the starting lineup in place of the expendable Leger Douzable.
Buckner brought his sack total up to 4.5 after enduring a three-week drought in the category. The 24-year-old actually had a second sack wiped out by a Richard Sherman illegal contact penalty on the Packers' game-winning drive. Buckner's tackle totals leave a lot to be desired (23 through six weeks), but the defensive tackle is well on pace to break his previous career high of six sacks this season.
Despite being nicked up for most of the season, Kittle has yet to actually miss a game. The Rams haven't allowed an opposing tight end to score a touchdown, but they have given up 8.0 yards per target to the position, thanks in large part to a monster outing from Oakland's Jared Cook back in Week 1.
The 49ers controlled the time of possession despite taking the loss, resulting in few tackle opportunities for all of their starting defenders. In fact, no defensive player had more than four tackles for San Francisco, so Warner's low total can be attributed to an unfavorable game script. The talented rookie should still be considered a strong IDP option after racking up 43 tackles over his previous four games.
Gilliam seems to be progressing in his recovery from a concussion sustained nearly a month ago. Given the nature of Gilliam's injury, it's difficult to estimate a timetable for the 27-year-old's return. Expected to serve a rotational role in the 49ers' O-line this season, it remains to be seen whether Gilliam will suit up for Sunday's season opener against the Vikings.
The 2017 seventh-round pick by the Browns was waived by the team Sept. 2. Dayes appeared in all 16 games for the Browns last season and had five carries for 13 yards while adding four receptions for 29 yards. He was also active on both sides of the ball on special teams, registering 18 kickoff returns for 437 yards (24.3 average) and eight tackles.
Fresh off inking a four-year contract last offseason, the veteran defensive tackle surpassed his previous career high in snaps that he set with Miami back in 2014. Primarily a run-stuffer, Mitchell didn't post totals that would appeal to IDP owners. His heavy usage indicates that the 49ers will likely feel comfortable deploying the 30-year-old in a similar early-down role next season.
Garcon carries the injury designation into the weekend after he only managed limited participation in practices Thursday and Friday. The wideout has failed to record more than five receptions or accrue more than 57 receiving yards in any of his six outings this season. Even if he shakes off the injury and suits up Sunday, Garcon's fantasy upside will remain fairly limited.
Smith was cleared of the hamstring injury that caused him to miss the first two games of the season, and he was immediately inserted as the team's starting Sam linebacker. While the 29-year-old is technically a starter, he was not used in nickel formations, limiting him to 34 of 76 snaps. Reuben Foster and rookie Fred Warner are the superior IDP options amongst the 49ers' linebackers.
Mostert appears to have gotten the nod over Morris based on the matchup more than anything, but the journeyman running back impressed thoroughly with his touches. Working in tandem with Matt Breida -- 14 carries, 27 offensive snaps -- Mostert used 23 snaps on offense to churn out 87 yards on his 12 rushes. With an upcoming matchup Sunday against the Rams, it remains to be seen if the 49ers will return to their previous 1-2 punch of Breida-Morris or the most recent version.
McGlinchey was a full participant in Friday's practice but is still deemed questionable. If he doesn't play, McGlinchey will be replaced by Garry Gilliam at right tackle.
Coleman was selected in the third round of the 2016 draft before appearing in 23 games with the Browns throughout the past two seasons. He started all 16 games at right tackle during his sophomore campaign in 2017.
An unusual game script led to a season-low three tackles for Foster last week, but he got back on track with a team-leading nine tackles against the Packers. The 49ers' field general was not limited by the minor shoulder injury he sustained last week, staying on the field for every defensive snap Monday. Foster will be very busy trying to run down the dynamic Todd Gurley in next week's division matchup against the Rams.
The move came as a result of the Niners and Johnson reaching an injury settlement. Johnson last suited up in 2016, playing seven games for the Browns and rushing once for two yards. He'll be free to sign with another team once he's healthy.
It isn't entirely clear what Thomas is dealing with. There's been no word of him being in the protocol for head injuries, but a concussion still can't be definitively ruled out. We'll likely know more about his injury in the coming days.
Colbert exited Monday's game against the Packers with an apparent head injury, but he appears to be no worse for the wear because of it. Barring a setback at some point, he's in a good position to play in Sunday's game against the Rams.
Beathard enjoyed a great start at Lambeau Field, tossing two touchdowns from 30-plus yards. With Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) injured, Beathard figures to lead the 49ers for the remainder of this season, and has now thrown for two touchdowns in three straight games. While his five interceptions over that same span are cause for concern, Beathard has proven a decent fill-in option for San Francisco while its franchise signal-caller is sidelined.
Witherspoon didn't practice Wednesday but practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. The Colorado product hasn't cleared concussion protocol just yet, but seems on pace to play Sunday. If he does miss Sunday's game, however, Greg Mabin or Jimmie Ward could get more work.
Nzeocha signed a one-year deal this offseason with an expectation of serving on special teams, but Harold's departure opens up a potential starting role to begin the season. The 28-year-old recorded just six tackles in kickoff coverage over the last two seasons, so it's unclear what type of production can be expected if he hangs on to the starting job come Week 1. Pita Taumoepenu and rookie Fred Warner could also compete for the job over the final two weeks of the preseason.
Street is just four months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL, so he was never expected to be able to return this season. The rookie defensive end will have to wait until the 2019 season to make his NFL debut.
This move casts doubt unto whether George Kittle (knee) is fully healthy, but Kittle is expected to suit up anyway. Therefore, Dwelley could end up being a healthy inactive Monday.
Garoppolo had the procedure less than two weeks after suffering the injury, which suggests the swelling in his knee wasn't too severe. He faces a lengthy rehab process, but the timing of the surgery should at least give him a good shot to be ready for Week 1 of the 2019 season. C.J. Beathard is expected to serve as the 49ers' starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2018 campaign.
Watson suffered a hamstring injury earlier this week, which was apparently significant enough to land the 30-year-old on IR. The reserve linebacker had landed on the PUP list earlier in training camp due to a strained calf muscle, and it remains unclear whether his current injury is related. With Watson out, Cassius Marsh figures to see an uptick in snaps.
The report doesn't provide any specifics but might be taken as a hint that McKinnon avoided major damage to the other ligaments in his knee. If so, the timing of the injury should allow him to return for Week 1 of next season, though he still has a grueling rehab process ahead. Meanwhile, Alfred Morris and Matt Breida are forming a timeshare in the San Francisco backfield.
Juszczyk was unable to match last week's season high of 75 yards, but his three receptions ranked fourth among all San Francisco receiving options Monday. The 27-year-old is averaging 2.8 receptions and 37.8 yards per game this season. Those numbers are exceptional for a fullback, but lacking in terms of a standard-league running back when you factor in the lack of carries (just one carry through six weeks).
Pettis returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant but was then held out of Thursday's session. He'll sit out for a third straight game, perhaps targeting a return Week 8 in Arizona.
Ward sustained the hamstring injury in the fourth quarter of the 49ers' Week 6 loss to Green Bay. The veteran defensive back had been starting alongside Richard Sherman, a role that will likely fall to Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) or Greg Mabin against the Rams if Ward's condition fails to improve prior to kickoff.
James suited up in Week 2 but didn't see the field. He's a depth receiver and special teams player who's likely inactive due to the overall health of players above him on the depth chart.
Coyle was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, meaning the linebacker will miss at least six weeks while he works to recover. He could be a candidate to return as the season progresses, but San Francisco won't make a definitive choice in the near future.
Tartt made a healthy return from a shoulder injury last week against the Cardinals, recording three tackles in a game that didn't see a 49ers defender get more than four. Monday's nine-tackle performance is a better indicator of the upside the safety possesses in IDP formats. Assuming he can stay off the injury list, Tartt is a good bet to lead all San Francisco defensive backs in tackles this season.
The rookie sixth-round pick is in line for his NFL debut Sunday against the Colts. However, he's projected to only be used as a depth linebacker and special teams man.
The move makes room for tight end Ross Dwelley on the 53-man roster. Delaire was just promoted from the active roster prior to Week 5's game, but he didn't suit up for the contest. Expect Delaire to return to the 49ers' practice squad if he goes unclaimed.
