49ers TE Garrett Celek (back) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Celek should play, but the injury throws some cold water on his status as a Sneaky Start (assuming Vance McDonald is out).

49ers TE Vance McDonald (hip) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Consider McDonald iffy for Week 4. Garrett Celek likely sees the most targets at tight end if McDonald is out.

49ers sign WR Keshawn Martin

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The San Francisco 49ers made an attempt to reinforce their receiving corps by signing free-agent wideout and return man Keshawn Martin to a two-year deal, per a report. The move fills up the vacant roster spot left by the retirement of offensive tackle Anthony Davis.

The San Francisco 49ers need all the help they can get, and they hope wide receiver Keshawn Martin can help provide a spark.

San Francisco signed Martin to a two-year deal on Tuesday, per NFL insider Rand Getlin.

Fantasy Impact:

He has 62 receptions for 685 yards and five touchdowns over his four-year NFL career. San Francisco’s offense currently ranks 29th in the league with just 876 yards gained. The Niners passing game has also generated a lowly 526 yards, which stands at No. 30 overall. Martin got a lot of attention last year when he was rumored to take over Julian Edelman's spot when he went down last year with a foot injury. Another note is Martin has broken a 70-plus yard kick or punt return in three of his four NFL seasons.

Kelly: QB Colin Kaepernick not healthy enough

Monday, September 26, 2016, 6:50pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly isn't going to make a change at quarterback right now, in part because he doesn't think backup Colin Kaepernick is healthy enough to handle the job.

Fantasy Impact:

Kelly said Sunday that he didn't consider pulling starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert in favor of Kaepernick during the team's 37-18 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He's spoken in the recent past of Kaepernick's need to gain weight to get back where he needs to be to play a full game.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 3. Martin is expected to miss the next three weeks with a hamstring injury, so Sims should step into a 15- to 18-touch role as the team’s primary back. The Rams have been so-so against the run this year, yielding three rushing touchdowns to the 49ers in Week 1.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin, doubtful) missed practice again Thursday and is doubtful for Week 3. Rawls was “on track to play” per HC Pete Carroll, but now he’ll be a game-time decision. His role is up in the air after he was outplayed by Christine Michael in Week 2. Michael looks like a nice start against the 49ers.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, Gates is “uncertain” for Week 3. The Chargers play late on Sunday, so owners should have a Plan B in place. Jacob Tamme, Jesse James, Trey Burton, Jack Doyle, Vance McDonald and Lance Kendricks all play at the same time as or later than Gates.
