Whoever’s playing quarterback for the 49ers could use all the help he could get.

So while their latest addition won’t help with the protection issues, he might do something for the passing game.

Via Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio, the 49ers are signing veteran receiver Louis Murphy.

They were short at the position after putting Pierre Garcon on injured reserve. Murphy was in camp with them this summer, but hasn’t played in a regular season game since he tore his ACL while playing for the Buccaneers in 2015.

49ers like that RB Carlos Hyde defended his QB

There were ejections for fighting in a couple of games on Sunday, including a 49ers-Cardinals scrap that ended with three players being sent to the locker room.

Cardinals safety Antoine Bethea‘s hit on 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard touched off the scuffle and 49ers running back Carlos Hyde wound up getting into it with 49ers defensive end Frostee Rucker, leading officials to eject both of them along with Arizona linebacker Haason Reddick. Hyde didn’t come in for any criticism from coach Kyle Shanahan after the game, though.

“I really loved how he went and got our quarterback’s back. …I thought our quarterback had a couple of helmets to the head when he was in the pocket a few plays before. And then he ended up scrambling and sliding and he got one again. I think our players had had enough.” Shanahan said, via the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite the "hot hand" comment a few weeks ago, Hyde was again a big part of the offense, which included 12 carries for 41 yards but also nine catches for 84 yards. Doesn't seem like his status with the team will take a hit because of this ejection.

Cardinals OC: time to 'feed the beast' in RB Adrian Peterson

Friday, November 3, 2017, 12:08pm

Kyle Odegard - [Full Article]

Cardinals OC Harold Goodwin wants the Cardinals to focus on the run game this week versus the 49ers.

“Feed the beast,” Goodwin said. “It’s like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We’ve just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.”

Peterson responded to Goodwin's comments by saying: "I'm all about that."

Fantasy Impact:

With Drew Stanton under center, it makes sense to feed Peterson with as many carries as he can handle. It's also a great matchup for Peterson and the Cardinals running backs, as the 49ers rank 32nd in our aFPA vs. RB rankings, meaning it's the best matchup of the week for RBs.

We have Peterson ranked as our No. 11 RB in standard leagues and he comes in at No. 17 in PPR leagues. Go ahead and start him with confidence.
