49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadricep, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 3. It looks like Goodwin may make his return this week, so we’ve added him to the rankings. He has a nice matchup with the Chiefs. The 49ers play early on Sunday.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin to be a game-time decision

Eric Branch reports 49ers' coach Kyle Shanahan declared Marquise Goodwin (quad) a game-time decision for Week 3.

Fantasy Impact:

It has been a frustrating year for Goodwin and his owners. The frustration may continue if he can't play in a cherry Week 3 matchup against a beleaguered Chiefs pass defense. Should the speedster see the field, he is a WR3 with a massive ceiling. The current total for the game sits at 55 points, which is the largest number of any game this week. A shootout is in order, so even if Goodwin doesn't suit up, there is value to be had among 49ers pass-catchers. Pierre Garcon would see a solid bump, perhaps to low-end WR2 status. Tight end George Kittle, already a top-10 option this week, would likely benefit from a higher target floor. Beyond those two, it gets sketchy, with Goodwin's backup Dante Pettis the most likely beneficiary. He has done little in Goodwin's stead thus far, but there would be worse WR4/WR5 dart throws this week.

Look for Dante Pettis to see a “huge role” per 49ers.com writer Joe Fann. He’d be a Sneaky Start if Goodwin is out.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin will miss Week 2

The 49ers have declared Goodwin out for Week 2.

Fantasy Impact:

Silver lining time: George Kittle stands to be more of a focus in the passing game. Goodwin's absence should also send a few extra looks to Pierre Garcon and Trent Taylor. Rookie Dante Pettis figures to start in Goodwin's place, but he and Taylor are deep league dart throws only. Kittle should see a marginal jump in value, but you were likely already starting him. Garcon may be the biggest beneficiary, potentially entering the WR3 discussion.

Lions RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 2. Blount supposedly suffered a knee injury in Week 1, but it’s his shoulder that has him on the injury report. It looks like he’s going to play against the 49ers.

Friday, September 14, 2018, 6:54pm

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadricep, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 2. Goodwin’s absence will open the door for Dante Pettis to see starter’s snaps and targets. Pettis posted 2-61-1 on five targets against a good Minnesota defense, so he’s a Sneaky Start against the Lions.

Thursday, September 13, 2018, 6:39pm

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (quadricep) did not practice Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan said he was “not sure” if Goodwin would be able to play in Week 2. If he’s out, look for Dante Pettis to see a “huge role” per 49ers.com writer Joe Fann. He’d be a Sneaky Start if Goodwin is out.

As expected, Marquise Goodwin, who is listed as questionable for Week 2, missed practice Wednesday with a thigh bruise. No further update was given.

Fantasy Impact:

If Goodwin can't go on Sunday, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis and George Kittle could all see increased work. Of the three, only Kittle is worth considering in your lineups.

49ers injury updates from Kyle Shanahan: WR Marquise Goodwin has a bruised thigh and will be day to day this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Goodwin did return to the game before eventually leaving for good. We'll likely know more about Goodwin on Wednesday but owners should probably have a backup plan in place if they were hoping to use Goodwin this week.

49ers Beat: Matt Breida, Alfred Morris to share RB duties

Tuesday, September 4, 2018, 7:47pm

NBC Sports Bay Area - [Full Article]

Veteran Alfred Morris earned a roster spot as insurance after second-year players Joe Williams and Jeremy McNichols failed to impress coach Kyle Shanahan and the organization. Morris will be paired with Matt Breida to share the duties in the backfield as McKinnon spends the season rehabbing to be at full strength for 2019.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, the two RBs are contrasts in styles and experience. It went on to say it could be a weekly adjustment, as Shanahan looks for the right matchups against a given opponent, beginning Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Right now, neither Morris nor Breida knows exactly what to expect.

49ers Beat: RB Alfred Morris could open season as starter

Saturday, September 1, 2018, 4:55pm

Matt Maiocco - [Full Article]

Veteran Alfred Morris, who was signed two weeks ago, could be the starter when the 49ers open the season. Matt Breida is likely to be the backup, with special-teams ace Raheem Mostert available in emergency situations.

Fantasy Impact:

With Jerick McKinnon suffering what the coaching staff fears is a significant knee injury, both Breida and Morris should be owned in all leagues moving forward. Our rankings will be constantly updated, as the latest news from this backfield unfolds. Whoever the starter is will have meaningful fantasy value with Kyle Shanahan's long track record of RB success.
