Rice: Steelers WR Antonio Brown wants to play for 49ers 'really bad'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Hall of Famer Jerry Rice said Monday during a radio interview that disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown wants to play for the San Francisco 49ers "really bad."

Fantasy Impact:

The Steelers would absorb $21.12 million in 2019 dead money on the salary cap by trading Brown, who has notched six consecutive 100-catch seasons -- but taking his $22.165 million cap charge off the books would offset that cost. Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7 million extension signed before the 2017 season.

Rams RB Todd Gurley still not practicing

Sean McVay said Todd Gurley (knee) not practicing all week, something he didn't do today, would not necessarily keep him from playing versus 49ers. He also said Gurley suffered similar symptoms after season opener versus Oakland.

Fantasy Impact:

In order for the Rams to miss out on a bye next week, they would need to lose against the 49ers while the Bears would have to beat the Vikings. Considering how good C.J. Anderson was last week, this looks to us like a good time to get their star back some rest.

49ers RB Matt Breida will play Week 16

49ers official injury report

The 49ers have removed Matt Breida (ankle) from their injury report.

Fantasy Impact:

Breida is hurt but playing. Weird. We haven't heard that once all year....

Even though he will be on the field against the Bears, he will be both less than 100 percent and in a super tough matchup. He is a flex play at best who will need to score or break a long play to truly help your team in championship week.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) took limited practice reps all week. Breida was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Always a risk for re-injury, he’s an RB2 in a tough matchup against the Bears. He has averaged 13.9 touches per game in the 11 games in which he’s played more than 15% of the snaps.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday and Thursday. It appears that Breida may be able to play despite re-injuring his ankle again last week. If he’s out, Jeff Wilson should once again take the reins in the 49er backfield. In Week 13 against the Seahawks, he turned 23 touches into 134 total yards and with Breida out in Week 14 against the Broncos, he turned 24 touches into 96 yards. The Bears defense is formidable, but Chicago has yielded an average of 128 rushing yards in its last four games on the road this season. If Breida plays, it will likely be a timeshare with Breida in the lead role as long as he’s able to go.

RB Matt Breida left the game late with an ankle aggravation. Jeff Wilson stepped in and played big in OT.

Fantasy Impact:

At this point we don't know how serious the injury is. Breida was out-snapping Wilson for most of the game until the injury. Depending on how Breida is for Week 16, it's very possibly Wilson could be in for a bigger workload. The bad news is the Niners host the Bears next week.
