Jones is among the best gunners in the league and led the Texans with 11 special teams tackles in 2016, despite playing in just nine games. Given the barren nature of the 49ers' secondary, he could conceivably carve out a role on defense this upcoming season.
Celek trailed starter George Kittle in targets for the third consecutive week, but he provided the better stat line after hauling in one of Brian Hoyer's two touchdown passes. The veteran tight end saw just one target over the 49ers' previous two games, so there isn't much to read into from a fantasy perspective.
Jackson played just one defensive snap this season, as he was relegated mainly to special teams duties, so his departure shouldn't affect fantasy owners. The 49ers replaced Jackson's roster vacancy with the signing of 32-year-old cornerback Leon Hall.
This was the rookie's second consecutive clunker after he began to show some potential in Weeks 3 and 4. Taylor's five targets matched fellow wideouts Marquise Goodwin and Aldrick Robinson, but he did the least with his opportunities compared to his teammates. The slot man's lack of size (5-foot-8) and breakaway speed would require a higher volume of targets to make a fantasy impact. Until we see an increase in usage, Taylor is best left on the waiver wire, even in PPR formats.
Bourne was active for the 49ers' season-opening loss to the Panthers, but only logged 10 snaps, with seven coming on special teams. He'll don street clothes in Week 2, with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan opting to keep return specialist Victor Bolden active instead as the team's No. 5 wideout.
The 49ers snagged Lee, the Vikings' seventh-round draft pick in April, off Minnesota's practice squad. He'll provide depth at linebacker in the wake of Reuben Foster's (ankle) expected month-long absence.
Showing no signs of the ankle injury he suffered in the 49ers' season finale, Robinson reportedly made a leaping interception on a deep pass from Brian Hoyer during seven-on-seven drills. He rolled with the first-string unit because Jimmie Ward (collarbone) wasn't able to participate in full, but if Ward switches to safety ahead of the upcoming campaign as expected, Robinson would likely become a mainstay in the starting lineup.
The injury Staley suffered in the third exhibition proved to be of little concern. Now confirmed to be healthy, the Central Michigan product is set to open the season as the starting left tackle.
Armstrong wasn't able to extend his two-game interception streak, but he still provided enough in the tackle department to help his IDP owners. NaVorro Bowman's unexpected release this week opened up a starting linebacker spot that Brock Coyle filled Sunday. While the 28-year-old has technically been filling in for Reuben Foster (ankle) at outside linebacker, the team will probably feel inclined to move their prized rookie back to his natural position of inside linebacker, which should keep Armstrong in the starting lineup after his strong play over the past five weeks (39 tackles, a sack, two interceptions and a forced fumble).
Lynch had logged just one tackle before leaving Sunday's game. Look for Elvis Dumervil to see increased reps at defensive end while the 24-year-old is sidelined.
This is a favorable landing spot for the fifth-round rookie after he was waived by the Buccaneers on Saturday. The 49ers only have three tailbacks on their roster, including undrafted rookie Matt Breida and special teams ace Raheem Mostert. It isn't hard to imagine a scenario in which Carlos Hyde suffers an injury and McNichols joins the 53-man roster as an immediate contributor.
Smelter had a strong start to training camp but was unable to crack the final roster. He now will look to impress on the team's practice squad, where he also spent the majority of last season.
The six touches were Breida's lowest total since Week 3. A good part of that can be explained by the fact that San Francisco had to lean on the pass after falling behind by two scores early. The rookie remains San Francisco's No. 2 behind Carlos Hyde and could be thrust into the top slot should Hyde, who is rumored to be on the trading block, leaves the team.
He added six yards on a designed run, but it was otherwise a disappointing showing from Goodwin after posting 116 yards last week against the Colts. The speedy wideout carries a healthy average of 17.4 yards per catch through five games, but his inconsistent usage and lack of touchdowns make him a tough player to rely on regularly.
Iworah was waived/injured by the team Friday, and he subsequently cleared waivers. He projected as a long shot to land on the final roster to begin with. The 2016 seventh-round pick will now remain on IR unless he and the 49ers can come to terms on an injury settlement.
Hyde has a lengthy injury history and is in the final year of his rookie contract with an 0-6 team. While a trade might seem to make sense, Hyde's performance this season -- along with his ability to play every game -- might have the Niners thinking about keeping him around beyond 2017. He's been a solid fit in Shanahan's offense, gaining 4.2 yards per carry while catching 23 passes in six games. Hyde only gained 28 yards on 13 carries in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Redskins, but he made up for it with a pair of one-yard touchdown runs and 47 yards on five catches. Top backup Matt Breida had only six touches for 36 yards, after taking 13 touches for 71 yards the previous week in Indianapolis. Hyde seems to be locked in for a heavy workload Week 7 against the Cowboys.
The 34-year-old's miss broke a streak of 34 consecutive successful field-goal tries dating back to the 2015 season. Gould is still an impressive 15-for-16 on the season, and he could see an increase in scoring opportunities now that rookie C.J. Beathard has taken over as the team's starting quarterback.
Carter didn't do much in the preseason to warrant a roster spot. He could be a candidate for the practice squad.
It was Bolden's second special teams touchdown of the preseason after he returned a kickoff for 104 yards against the Broncos on Aug. 19. The undrafted rookie's strong contributions as a return man bode well for his prospects of making the 53-man roster.
Garnett could possibly be lifted from IR at some point in the season if the 49ers elect him to be one of the two players they're allowed to activate.
Williams joined the 49ers in the offseason and has debatably been the team's top corner through three weeks while accruing 14 tackles and two passes defended in that span. He's now set to remain in San Francisco through the 2020 campaign.
Armstead was placed on injured reserve after breaking his hand Sunday against the Redskins. The team signed defensive ends Leger Douzable and Tony McDaniel in his absence. While Armstead could return from the IR, it doesn't seem likely considering he'll be out at least four to six weeks recovering. The 23-year-old recorded 16 tackles and 1.5 sacks in six games this season.
Tomlinson, a 2015 first-round pick, started 24 of 32 games during his two seasons with Detroit. He's seen most of his time at left guard during his professional career, and could unseat veteran Zane Beadles for starting duties at that position with his new team.
The severity of the injury is not known at this time. Blair is currently competing with Tank Carradine, Elvis Dumervil and Aaron Lynch for a role providing depth at defensive end. The 24-year-old tallied 11 tackles in 16 games with the team in 2016.
Burbridge injured his hamstring early on in training camp and is now set to miss the entire year. He's unlikely to come off injured reserve unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
Paulsen was released in order to make room for two defensive line signings after the team placed Arik Armstead (hand) on injured reserve. Paulsen didn't see many offensive reps with the 49ers this season, spending most of his time instead on special teams.
Buckner would have actually had two sacks had the 49ers not accepted a holding penalty -- where he was being held nonetheless -- to push the Cardinals further back in the overtime period. The talented lineman is producing numbers on par with his breakout campaign last year, totaling 19 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble through four contests.
The concussion occurred as the result of a collision. Newsom figured to be a long shot at landing on the final roster before landing on the IR. He will remain there for the rest of the season unless he and the team reach an injury settlement.
Kittle did the bulk of his damage during San Francisco's final drive before halftime, snagging a 31-yard pass down field and then catching a six-yarder to help set up Carlos Hyde's touchdown plunge. Kittle has thus far outperformed his draft position with four or more catches in three of six games. Expect that number to increase now that Kittle's college quarterback back at Iowa, C.J. Beathard, has been named the starter. Three of Kittle's receptions and six of his targets came from Beathard on Sunday. While the pass was ultimately intercepted, it was telling that Beathard looked Kittle's way on the team's final desperation play to convert a 4th-and-20 in the closing seconds.
The nature of Jones' injury isn't clear. He's likely stuck on IR through season's end, barring an injury settlement.
Mitchell was cut by the Dolphins in a cap-saving move last week but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. While the Arizona product racked up a career-low 17 tackles and zero sacks last season, he could be in line for a rebound in 2017 if he can secure the Niners' first-string nose tackle job this summer; the incumbent starting nose tackle, Glenn Dorsey, is set to hit unrestricted free agency.
Garcon was heavily targeted in this one, getting four more looks than the next highest receiver. While his final stat line left much to be desired from a fantasy perspective, the veteran's heavy usage is a positive sign for his fantasy owners, especially those in PPR formats. The 49ers officially promoted rookie signal caller C.J. Beathard to a starting role midway through the second quarter, and the offense received the spark it needed to get back into the contest. It may not be a coincidence that Garcon saw all of his positive production following the quarterback change after failing to connect once with Brian Hoyer. Expect the 31-year-old to finish near the top in team targets next week against the Cowboys' 23rd-ranked pass defense (250.4 passing yards per game).
The IR move give the 49ers the flexibility to add another linebacker. Smith is still expected to miss the entire 2017 season, but is technically eligible to return after Week 8 if his recovery is faster than anticipated.
Mostert received his first offensive action of the season after Carlos Hyde went down with a hip injury in the first quarter. The 25-year-old suffered an untimely fumble as the 49ers tried to climb out of an early hole, and he didn't receive another carry for the rest of the game. Mostert's faux pas combined with Hyde's triumphant return could limit the speedy back to a special teams role going forward.
Harold first appeared on the injury report Wednesday, so it was difficult to know his chances of suiting up tonight. The 23-year-old will likely start at outside linebacker for the 49ers Thursday night, although he played only 34 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 2.
When he got the hook during the second quarter, Hoyer was 4-for-11 passing for 34 yards. Meanwhile, C.J. Beathard led the 49ers to scores on four of his seven drives, completing 19 of 36 passes for 245 yards, one touchdown and one interception. With Hoyer expected to don a hat and clipboard moving forward, he's free to jettison in most formats.
Dumervil has now collected 3.5 sacks over his last two contests after failing to record a tackle or a sack over the previous three games. The veteran pass rusher has yet to eclipse the 30-snap mark in any game this season, which severely limits his tackle potential on a weekly basis. Dumervil's sack streak may be in jeopardy when the 49ers take on two of the better offensive tackles in the NFL -- Trent Williams and Morgan Moses -- next week in Washington.
Carradine, who is nursing a high-ankle sprain, was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage, but the 49ers still opted to clear up a roster spot. The 28-year-old could be a candidate to return from IR in eight weeks, but in the meantime, rookie Solomon Thomas will likely see the most significant boost in playing time.
Per Can Inman of the Bay Area News Group, Foster took part in Wednesday's practice, after logging limited sessions all last week. He seemed to be on track to return for Sunday's eventual 26-24 loss to the Redskins, but he was ruled out in a game-time decision. With Navorro Bowman no longer around, there's little question Foster will have a three-down role, which should allow for immediate IDP utility. The rookie figures to have plenty of tackle opportunities if he's activated for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
The first-round pick bounced back from last week's underwhelming performance with his best stat line of the season. Solomon has been used in a three-down role over the 49ers' last three games, and he has responded with 16 tackles and two sacks over that span. The rookie's confidence and production should continue to grow as the season progresses, making him one of the higher-upside linemen in IDP formats.
Colbert was limited in practice throughout the past week and it's unclear if he'll be limited at all during Sunday's game. Look for Dexter McCoil to get some extra secondary snaps if Colbert is limited in any fashion.
After San Francisco failed to move the ball at least 25 yards in the team's first four offensive drives, Beathard came in for Brian Hoyer and came close to leading a comeback from 14-0 down, including a 75-yard touchdown drive on his second possession under center. Beathard's stats took a bit of a hit at the very end of the game as he forced a ball down field with the 49ers in desperation mode, but he still finished with a higher quarterback rating than Brian Hoyer has posted in four of his six starts and San Francisco scored more in a little over a half with Beathard than in four of its first five full games. The 49ers are now winless and seem on the verge of potentially competing for Kirk Cousins or drafting a quarterback early next offseason. It makes sense to see what they have in their rookie, who Kyle Shanahan has compared to Cousins, as opposed to hobble down the stretch with Hoyer.
Witherspoon suffered a concussion in last week's game against the Colts, leading him to be limited in practice throughout the week. He'll resume his normal role as one of the team's top backups at cornerback behind starters Dontae Johnson and Rashard Robinson.
Nzeocha makes the jump from the Cowboys' practice squad up to the 49ers' 53-man roster, with defensive end Tank Carradine being place on injured reserve in a corresponding move. The 2015 seventh-round pick will likely only play a special teams and reserve linebacker role in San Francisco.
McCoil was active for two games this season and recorded a single tackle. The 26-year-old was let go to make room for running back Andre Williams, and remains eligible for the practice squad should he clear waivers.
This doesn't necessarily mean the injury is serious; the 49ers may just be glad to keep their 2017 fourth-round pick without having to use a spot on the 53-man roster. Initially hyped as a candidate to earn a major role, Williams struggled with ball security and learning the offense throughout training camp and the preseason, while undrafted rookie Matt Breida proved to be a quick study. Breida presumably will enter the season as Carlos Hyde's top backup, with Raheem Mostert holding the No. 3 spot on the depth chart. Williams is still an intriguing asset in dynasty leagues, as Hyde can become a free agent after the season.
The 32-year-old veteran played 12 games with the Giants last season, recording 31 tackles, two sacks and one interception in the process. He failed to sign on with any team this offseason, but could now become an immediate contributor on defense given the plethora of injures in San Francisco's secondary. Even if he doesn't see the field at first, Hall's veteran presence will help guide the 49ers' young cornerbacks.
Watson sat out last week's contest and was limited in practice this past week. He'll look to return to action against the Cowboys in Week 7. Expect Pita Taumoepenu and Ray-Ray Armstrong to see some extra snaps with Watson out.
Reid, who has been sideline since Week 2, is looking like a game-time decision for Week 6. Jaquiski Tartt figures to continue seeing an increased workload in the secondary if Reid is unable to return.
With no other fullback on the roster, San Francisco likely will deploy more two-TE formations in Juszczyk's absence. Garrett Celek and Logan Paulsen figure to pick up a few extra snaps.
The start to Ward's 2017 campaign was slowed by a lingering hamstring injury -- and he was limited in practice this week -- but the safety has now started in two consecutive games, totaling 12 tackles while chipping in a pass defensed. When healthy, the former corner brings a unique combination of physicality and coverage skills to the table in IDP formats.
Robinson was quiet for most of the game until new starting quarterback C.J. Beathard connected with him on a 45-yard touchdown with two minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Redskins inexplicably ran a cover 1 defense with the 49ers operating in an obvious pass situation, leaving the veteran wide open down the sideline for his first touchdown of the year. The offense showed new life after Beathard took over, which should give a small bump to San Francisco's receiving options. That said, Robinson is still operating as the team's fourth wideout, so his targets will fluctuate on a week-to-week basis.
The 27-year-old had big shoes to fill in the heart of the 49ers' defense, but he wasn't fazed by the opportunity, handling all of the play calls in the defensive huddle, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Reuben Foster (ankle) is likely to move back to his natural position of inside linebacker once his injury is cleared, but Coyle should be a cheap source of tackles if the talented rookie is unable to suit up next week against the Cowboys.
The 2016 third-round draft pick failed to rehab from an ankle issue this preseason after missing all of last year with a significant knee injury. The 49ers could reclaim Redmond and place him on injured reserve if he passes through waivers Saturday.
The athletic safety continues to start in place of the injured Eric Reid (knee), producing 33 tackles and an interception through five games. The latter has yet to return to practice , and until he is officially cleared to play, Tartt should remain relevant in IDP formats.
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.
