Colin Kaepernick - QBPosted 2/4/16 11:07am ET
The New York Jets are not and have not been interested in San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has wanted out of San Francisco for months now, and the hiring of new head coach Chip Kelly hasn't changed his stance. A trade remains very likely.
Huddle Up: While the marriage of Kaepernick and Kelly seems ideal, that may not be how things shake out in San Francisco. So expect Kaep to be linked with just about every available quarterback opening this offseason until either Kelly anoints him as his quarterback or he lands with a new team.
Colin Kaepernick - QBPosted 2/3/16 12:46pm ET
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick reportedly 'wants out of San Francisco,' and sources said Tuesday, Feb. 2, that the New York Jets are his preferred destination. The team is aware and intrigued in Kaepernick's desire to play for the cub, but are still in early stages of their offseason planning and evaluation, sources said.
Huddle Up: The Jets have Ryan Fitzpatrick entering free agency, so maybe they want to get younger at the quarterback position. Could be some interesting musical chairs going on at quarterback this offseason, with Kaepernick among those looking for a chair.
Colin Kaepernick - QBPosted 2/2/16 10:15pm ET
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick wants to leave the 49ers and join the New York Jets, according to sources. The Jets are aware of and intrigued by Kaepernick's aspiration, but they are still in the early stages of their offseason planning and evaluation, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Jets' Plan A figures to remain signing free-agent Ryan Fitzpatrick, with Kaepernick a potential fall-back option should something go awry.
Colin Kaepernick - QBPosted 1/29/16 9:55pm ET
San Francisco 49ers chief executive officer Jed York can see QB Colin Kaepernick winning his starting job back in 2016 if he is healthy. 'There's no question in my mind,' York replied. 'I've always had a very, very high opinion of Kap. Kap's a great kid, he's done a lot of great things for us. And again, this is a fresh start for everybody.'
Huddle Up: The intrigue level certainly has jumped a level or three by the Bay with Chip Kelly's arrival. Kaepernick, though, is going to have to re-discover his aerial touch after notching only two 300-yard games over his last 19 outings.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 1/21/16 9:57am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) underwent foot surgery late in the season, but he should be good to go for the start of offseason activities.
Huddle Up: Hyde missed a large chunk of the 2015 season with a foot injury, so it makes sense to get things cleaned up now. That way he'll be able to participate in as much of the offseason program as possible as new coach Chip Kelly installs the new offense.
Chip Kelly - HCPosted 1/14/16 5:11pm ET
Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was hired by the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Jan. 14, as their new head coach. Terms of the deal weren't immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: After a 26-21 record in three seasons in Philly, Kelly is switching coasts and will take over a Niners' club, which is coming off its worst season (5-11) in eight years. It would be an intriguing pairing if QB Colin Kaepernick is retained, but that situation remains unclear. In any case, there will be a pretty steep transition seasons by the Bay.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 12/30/15 6:22pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Draughn had it going there for a few weeks, but the who-could've-imagined trio of DuJuan Harris, Jarryd Hayne and Kendall Gaskins will close the season as the Niners' top backs.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 12/23/15 10:48pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Draughn isn't expected to play on Sunday. Newly signed DuJuan Harris will lead the 49ers backfield against the Lions if Draughn can't go. Needless to say, this is a fantasy situation to avoid.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 12/22/15 5:31pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) did not sustain a serious knee injury in Week 15, but the 49ers may be looking for some help at the position as insurance.
Huddle Up: San Fran did add JuJuan Harris off the Ravens' practice squad Tuesday, Dec. 22, and Draughn likely will see limited work if he does play the final two games.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 12/20/15 11:57pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn (knee) exited against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15 with a knee injury and did not return.
Huddle Up: Draughn was replaced by Travaris Cadet. His status for Week 16 is uncertain. Neither player is a recommended start next week for fantasy championships.
Vance McDonald - TEPosted 12/17/15 10:38pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: McDonald has been cleared to return after a week's absence, and will look to re-gain the steam he had prior to his Week 13 injury.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/11/15 6:27pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) will not travel with the team to face the Cleveland Browns in Week 14, according to head coach Jim Tomsula.
Huddle Up: Hyde hasn't played since Week 7, and at this point he's likely best served shutting things down for the rest of the season. In his stead, meanwhile, Shaun Draughn has emerged as an RB2 option.
Anquan Boldin - WRPosted 12/11/15 9:45pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Boldin is expected to play and is a WR3 against the Browns. He should see even more targets with TE Vance McDonald out this week.
Vance McDonald - TEPosted 12/11/15 9:45pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and has been ruled out for the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Blake Bell will start at tight end for the 49ers this week. Even with Blaine Gabbert throwing more to the tight ends, Bell isn't a recommended fantasy play this week.
Garrett Celek - TEPosted 12/8/15 3:49pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE Garrett Celek (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 8. Free-agent LB Shayne Skov (49ers) was subsequently re-signed to a two-year deal.
Huddle Up: Celek hasn't played since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 12, and with fellow TE Vance McDonald suffering the concussion in Sunday's win over the Bears, rookie Blake Bell currently is the only healthy tight end on the roster. See how McDonald progresses this week.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 12/7/15 11:19pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn has totaled at least 35 rushing yards and 35 receiving yards in each of his last four games. Additionally, Draughn has not caught fewer than four passes in each of those contests.
Huddle Up: Draughn is tied for the RB lead with 22 catches since Week 9 -- and that span includes the Niners' Week 10 bye -- and has been a capable fill-in (certainly in PPR leagues) for the injured Carlos Hyde.
Vance McDonald - TEPosted 12/5/15 2:17pm ET
San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald should receive more playing time against the Chicago Bears in Week 13 since TE Garrett Celek (ankle) has been ruled out.
Huddle Up: McDonald has seen his production increase greatly since Blaine Gabbert took over as the 49ers quarterback. McDonald is a strong streaming option this week against the Bears.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/4/15 12:44am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 3, and he's expected to miss his fifth straight game in Week 13 against the Chicago Bears. Head coach Jim Tomsula refuses to give any further update on Hyde regarding his injury. The Niners have called Hyde day-to-day for the last six weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot. Hyde is a candidate to be put on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: As feared when it was first revealed that Hyde was trying to play with a foot fracture, the running back's once-promising season has dissolved into a lost one. And with the fantasy playoffs here next week in most leagues, it's past time to move on in re-draft leagues.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/4/15 4:16pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) will not travel Sunday, Dec. 6, and is out for Week 13.
Huddle Up: With Hyde set to miss a fifth-straight game, it'll be the Shaun Draughn Show once again as he's received all the Niners' RB touches over the previous two games.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 11/30/15 9:02am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn carried 15 times for 51 yards in the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals and he posted five receptions for 35 yards.
Huddle Up: Draughn is about all the Niners have going in their backfield right now, and he's carving out at least a little fantasy value with his heavy workload. He may not be a fantasy savior down the stretch, but at least he won't hurt you.
Blaine Gabbert - QBPosted 11/30/15 9:02am ET
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert completed 25 of his 36 pass attempts for 318 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He also ran once for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Let that sink in: Gabbert. 318 yards. You have to admit, while he's not exactly setting off fireworks in San Francisco he's at least held his own.
Vance McDonald - TEPosted 11/30/15 9:02am ET
San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald posted six grabs for 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals. He has posted his two best games of his three-year career in back-to-back games.
Huddle Up: McDonald's numbers should only improve with Garret Celek sidelined, as Blaine Gabbert has a definite comfort level throwing to his tight ends. He's a sneaky fantasy helper down the stretch.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 11/27/15 11:36pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and has been ruled out for the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: As expected, Hyde won't play against the Cardinals, Shaun Draughn will continue to be the 49ers' primary back. He's a low-end RB2 this week.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 11/25/15 7:05pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Hyde is in danger of missing a fourth straight game, but backup Shaun Draughn has been sneakily productive --particularly in PPR leagues -- with 173 total yards, including 78 on 12 catches -- over the last two games.
Shaun Draughn - RBPosted 11/23/15 12:20am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn carried 12 times for 37 yards in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he added eight receptions for 40 yards. Draughn was targeted 11 times.
Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde doesn't appear close to returning and Draughn is dominating the touches in the 49ers' backfield. He's worth adding this week if you need help at running back.
Anquan Boldin - WRPosted 11/23/15 12:20am ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) posted five receptions for a game-high 93 yards in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Boldin wasn't 100 percent but played well in a tough matchup against Seattle. Boldin was dropped in a lot of leagues but has more fantasy value with Blaine Gabbert under center. He's back on the WR3/4 radar.
Colin Kaepernick - QBPosted 11/21/15 4:10pm ET
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Kaepernick will have surgery to repair a torn labrum on his non-throwing shoulder. It ends a nightmare year for Kaepernick who was ultimately benched two weeks ago for Blaine Gabbert. The 49ers will go with Gabbert as their starter for the rest of the season. Kaepernick has likely played his last snap for the 49ers.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 11/20/15 1:02am ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 19, and is not expected to play in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Hyde hasn't played since the Week 7 loss to the Seahawks, and if he misses a third straight game expect to see plenty of Shaun Draughn after he midly surprised with 96 total yards on 20 touches in Week 9 against the Falcons after signing off the street earlier that week.
Anquan Boldin - WRPosted 11/20/15 9:11pm ET
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as questionable for the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Boldin practiced all week and should play against the Seahawks. He's nothing more than a WR4 against the tough Seattle defense.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 11/20/15 9:11pm ET
San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and has been ruled out for the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Shaun Draughn will likely lead the 49ers in touches once again just as he did against the Falcons two weeks ago. Draughn is a low-end RB2 in a tough matchup versus the Seahawks.
