49ers RB Marcus Lattimore, who endured one of the most gruesome in-game injuries we've ever seen on a football field back in 2012, will hit the practice field as an active participant for the first time in his career once the San Francisco 49ers return from the bye week.

Fantasy Impact:

Lattimore is behind Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde, so he's unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact this season, but it's good to hear that he's healthy enough to return to practice.

The Buffalo Bills are signing former Dallas Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner, according to a league source.

The Bills needed help at running back with injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. Tanner has visited the San Francisco 49ers this year and previously worked out for the Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts.

Tanner spent the last three seasons with the Cowboys and rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns, as well as nine receptions for 93 yards. He recorded 21 special teams tackles.

Fantasy Impact:

Tanner will be behind Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown.

49ers TE Vernon Davis feeling 'much better' heading into Week 7

Friday, October 17, 2014, 8:44pm

49ers - [Full Article]

49ers tight end Vernon Davis said he chose to play on Monday night in St. Louis and that he felt poorly during the game. How does number 85 feel entering Sunday night? "Much better," he said. "But it's pretty brutal on the body. It's a quick turnaround, so you have to on your game mentally."

Fantasy Impact:

Davis is a better play this week due to his improved health and a matchup with the Broncos, who may jump out to a lead and force more pass attempts by the 49ers.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Ronnie Hillman will once again be the lead back in Week 7. He has a tough matchup against the 49ers.

49ers WR Stevie Johnson (hip, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 7.

Zac Stacy ACTIVE for MNF

Monday, October 13, 2014, 7:13pm

Rams Inactives
Alex Carrington DE
Chris Givens WR
Trumaine Johnson CB
Barrett Jones G
Case Keenum QB
Brandon McGee CB
Chase Reynolds RB

Fantasy Impact:

It's not a surprise, but Zac Stacy is active and will play against the 49ers on Monday night. He was listed as probable heading into this contest. The 49ers are the top team in allowing fantasy points to RBs, so this isn't a great matchup. On top of that, it looks like Benny Cunningham will steal some work.

Vernon Davis ACTIVE for Monday night

Fantasy Impact:

TE Vernon Davis was a question mark with a back injury coming into this one, but will play on Monday night. It's a decent matchup against the Rams who rank 18th in allowing fantasy points to TEs.

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

St. Louis running back Zac Stacy should be as busy as usual Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

Stacy's status was in question after the second-year player left the Rams' game last week at Philadelphia because of a calf strain. After missing practice early in the week, he was back in full swing Friday and Saturday.

''I had a good week of prep this week, got back running around earlier this week,'' Stacy said. ''It feels good, ready to go.''
Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy responded well as a full participant in practices Friday and Saturday.

''Usually, if there's any doubt in our minds, we'll list him as limited and questionable, but he will be listed as full practice, probable,'' Fisher said.

Fantasy Impact:

Benny Cunningham should be in store for some work as well. It's not a great matchup against the 49ers rush defense but Stacy is listed as probable. The Rams will just have to keep this game close to utilize the running game. Stacy is ranked just 28th on our list and the 9ers are the top team in allowing fantasy points to RBs.

MNF Injury Report Week 6 - Vernon Davis QUESTIONABLE, Zac Stacy PROBABLE

PROBABLE
CB Chis Cook (quadricep), DE Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder), DE Ray McDonald (knee), DT Ian Williams (ankle), P Andy Lee (right ankle), DE Justin Smith (not injury related)

PROBABLE

Fantasy Impact:

Davis was limited in practice all week and is a big question mark heading into Monday night. If Rams TE Jared Cook is available in your league he may make for a solid, last-minute option since it looks like Davis is headed for a game-time call. For the Rams, Britt and Stacy are probably, but it will be a tough matchup for Stacy and the Rams running attack.
