  49ers | San Fran taking a look at two FA backs    Mon Sep 20, 03:46 PM

Free-agent RBs Duke Johnson and Lamar Miller are scheduled to visit with the San Francisco 49ers soon, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The 49ers will be looking for running back help with both JaMycal Hasty (ankle) and Trey Sermon (concussion) banged up. Even Elijah Mitchell suffered a shoulder injury he came back from. Mitchell and Trenton Cannon are the only two healthy (ish) backs on the roster. Johnson and Miller have plenty of experience and would give the 49ers veteran depth if added.

  49ers | Just one grab for Brandon Aiyuk    Sun Sep 19, 04:35 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk was active in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he had just one catch for six yards on two targets.

Footballguys view: Aiyuk is just a bench stash at this point and definitely a drop in short bench leagues. He might be out of the doghouse, but he's not going to show up in the box score.

  49ers | Jauan Jennings records first NFL score    Sun Sep 19, 04:29 PM

  49ers | Deebo Samuel flirts with century mark    Sun Sep 19, 04:25 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel registered six receptions for a team-high 93 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Samuel was the clear #1 receiver for the 49ers as Brandon Aiyuk was still just a complementary piece in the passing game. Samuel is a solid fantasy WR2 heading into a matchup with the Packers.

  49ers | Trey Sermon evaluated for head injury    Sun Sep 19, 04:23 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Trey Sermon (head) exited the Week 2 game in the second half against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a head injury, and he is being evaluated for concussion.

Footballguys view: Sermon had a good carry before the injury and should get another chance as soon as he can play again, although the 49ers clearly prefer Elijah Mitchell right now. Sermon is worth holding unless you're in a short bench league. Look for the 49ers to possibly sign a veteran back this week.

  49ers | Elijah Mitchell cools off in Week 2    Sun Sep 19, 04:10 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell rushed 17 times for 42 yards in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he was targeted twice, hauling in each for 11 yards.

Footballguys view: Mitchell was stopped just short of the goal line on one attempt and also left the game with a shoulder injury. The 49ers gave Mitchell the clear lead back job and nothing that happened today would change that when Mitchell is healthy again even though he was inefficient against a stout Eagles run defense. He'll try to get healthy for the matchup against Green Bay while Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys will face the Eagles next week.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo totals two TDs in win    Sun Sep 19, 04:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 22-of-30 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while also running for 20 yards and a score in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Things didn't come as easily as they did last week against the weak Lions defense, but Garoppolo made enough plays to keep the Trey Lance talk at bay. The 49ers move to 2-0 with the Packers up next.

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

  49ers | SF interested in Richard Sherman    Sat Sep 18, 10:08 AM

The San Francisco 49ers have expressed interest in possibly bringing back free-agent CB Richard Sherman at a later date, according to The Athletic's David Lombardi.

Footballguys view: The 49ers will be down their top two corners against the Eagles, so they are in desperation mode despite it only being Week 2. Sherman had a rough offseason, but the team knows him well and he would be welcomed back if he's ready to play. Emmanuel Moseley could return soon, but #1 corner Jason Verrett is out for the year with an ACL tear.

  49ers | San Francisco's Week 2 injury report    Fri Sep 17, 03:00 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB Dre Greenlaw (groin) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles. CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Sept. 17, but is listed as doubtful. DE Arik Armstead (adductor), LB Marcell Harris (oblique) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) were also limited in practice Friday and are listed as questionable. DE Dee Ford (ankle) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and no longer appears on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are already without #1 corner Jason Verrett and now their #2 Moseley is likely out. Jalen Hurts will have a tougher matchup than the Falcons "defense" he faced last week, but he and his wide receivers could still have success against a skeleton crew at corner.

  49ers | Brandon Aiyuk eyeing full workload in Week 2?    Fri Sep 17, 02:04 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk would have 'got his spot completely back' had he not tweaked his hamstring before the third preseason game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Per Shanahan, he planned on rotating Aiyuk in Week 1 and denied that his receiver was in the 'doghouse.'

Footballguys view: Aiyuk is still just a what the heck flex until we see how many snaps Trent Sherfield gets, but this is a good sign for him in dynasty leagues. If you traded for Aiyuk this week, you probably did well for your fantasy team.

  49ers | Trey Sermon showing aggressiveness    Fri Sep 17, 12:27 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Trey Sermon has had a fire lit under him in practice after he was a healthy scratch in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Sermon is a what the heck flex this week, and he could even overtake Elijah Mitchell as the lead back. We know this backfield will be productive, but we can't be sure how the work will be allotted this week. The good news is that Sermon got the message sent by his Week 1 healthy scratch.

Footballguys view: Azeez Al-Shaair is a very solid replacement for Greenlaw. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles will be the third linebacker now, but likely only play about one third of the time.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) announced via social media that he will undergo season-ending surgery on the knee injury he suffered in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Mostert is done for the year and the 49ers move on with Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon, and JaMycal Hasty in the backfield. Mitchell is the top back for now and worth a lot of priority on your waiver wire this week. Sermon is a talented rookie but has to work his way into the mix, and Hasty is for Fantasy GMs who love to roll the dice on those long-shot backup running backs who can become fantasy relevant at the end of the year.

  49ers | Brandon Aiyuk in the doghouse?    Mon Sep 13, 01:39 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk 'tailed off dramatically' near the end of the preseason and is 'still learning how to be a pro,' which led to him being benched in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are sending a message to Aiyuk...so let's see if he listens. Aiyuk has a ton of talent and when he gets on the field there will be lots of fantasy potential. Fantasy GMs are holding in deep-bench leagues, but some out there have to move on from Aiyuk so they can grab someone like Tim Patrick (Broncos) off the waiver wire.
