49ers TE George Kittle (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Kittle played most of the game against the Packers so we’re expecting him to play through the knee injury again this week.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (hamstring, quadricep) practiced fully Wednesday. Goodwin is certainly startable after a big Week 6 against the Packers. The Rams are struggling to defend the pass.

49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder, ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Thought to be doubtful for most of the week, Breida played through the ankle injury against the Packers on Monday night and posted 61 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. He should be able to play again in Week 7.

Packers inactives
QB Tim Boyle
WR Randall Cobb
CB Jaire Alexander
CB Bashaud Breeland
T/G Alex Light
T Jason Spriggs
WR Geronimo Allison

Related players: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown

Fantasy Impact:

As reported earlier, Allison and Cobb won't play against the 49ers meaning Valdes-Scantling becomes an interesting play for those in need. St. Brown could also be in the mix.

Schefter: Banged up 49ers expected to play Monday night

49ers' RB Matt Breida (shoulder, ankle), WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) and TE George Kittle (knee) -- all listed as questionable for tonight's game in Green Bay against the Packers -- all are expected to play, per source.

Related players: Alfred Morris

Fantasy Impact:

Breida is perhaps the biggest surprise of the group. We had a report earlier today that he was really pushing to play tonight and it seems like he's going to get his wish. An active Breida would hurt the fantasy value of Morris.

Packers Beat: WRs Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison likely to sit for MNF

Packers’ WRs Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison are “likely to be inactive” vs 49ers tonight on Monday Night Football, per Lisa Salters.

Related players: Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Fantasy Impact:

Both are dealing with hamstring issues. The Packers may be sitting them due to their Week 7 bye, with the hope they can get by this week and both players will be back and ready to go for Week 8. Valdes-Scantling makes for a nice option for owners counting on Cobb or Allison tonight. Things will be official around 7 p.m. tonight when the inactives are announced.

49ers RB Matt Breida wants to play Monday night

Tom Pelissero on Twitter - [Full Article]

49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder/ankle) has improved through the week and is pushing to play tonight vs. the Packers here in Green Bay, source said.

Related players: Alfred Morris

Fantasy Impact:

As Kyle Shanahan said Saturday, it’ll be a game-time type of decision, Pelissero went on to say. The 49ers shouldn't have a lot of incentive to push him to play given how their season likely isn't going anywhere. We may not know for sure until inactives are announced about 90 minutes before kickoff.

MNF: 49ers RB Matt Breida limited Saturday, questionable Week 6

Saturday, October 13, 2018, 4:58pm

49ers injury report - [Full Article]

In a bit of a surprise, accoridng to the team's official injury report, 49ers running back Matt Breida (ankle) was able to practice Saturday for the 49ers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has said this week he is doubtful to play, but his official injury designation lists Breida as questionable for Monday night against the Packers.

He is likely headed for a game-time decision. However, NBC Sports Bay Area reported Friday that if the 49ers promote a RB from the practice squad Monday afternoon, that would be an indication that Breida will not play. NBCS Bay Area also describes Breida as 50-50 for Week 6.

Related Players: Alfred Morris

Fantasy Impact:

For owners that have Breida but not Alfred Morris, the Monday night kickoff puts them in a tough spot. Our suggestion would be to move Breida to your FLEX if you are lacking depth and make sure you have another viable back-up from the Packers or 49ers. If you have a similar or better option than Breida that plays Sunday, this would be the safer decision than risking Breida being inactive Monday. Obviously, if you own Breida and Morris, you have the handcuff locked and loaded for Week 6.

MNF: Packers WRs Cobb, Allison questionable for Week 6

Saturday, October 13, 2018, 3:59pm

Ryan Wood - [Full Article]

Mike McCarthy said he'd give WRs Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb up until inactives Monday night to get healthy enough to play. The team didn't practice Saturday, but the injury report estimates they both would have had limited participation.

Fantasy Impact:

Both playing on Monday night complicates things for fantasy owners. Both have hamstring injuries, which also has an increased chance of re-injury if either is active. If available, fantasy owners would be wise to start a better option at WR on Sunday if Marquez Valdes-Scantling is not available. The Packers rookie WR4 put up 7-68-1 on 10 targets last week.

Friday, October 12, 2018, 7:31pm

Packers WRs Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Friday. Allison is probably closer to playing than Cobb since the injury that knocked him out of Week 4 was a concussion, not a hamstring injury. Hopefully we’ll get an update on both players by Sunday morning. Marquez Valdes-Scantling will be an intriguing play once again if either Allison or Cobb are out.

Friday, October 12, 2018, 7:31pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. Rodgers apparently had a setback with his sprained MCL against the Lions but will play Monday night against the 49ers.

Friday, October 12, 2018, 7:31pm

Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. Graham is good to go for Monday night.
