  49ers | San Francisco signs three draft picks    Fri May 10, 12:42 AM

The San Francisco 49ers agreed to terms with second-round CB Renardo Green, fourth-round RB Isaac Guerendo, and fourth-round WR Jacob Cowing on Thursday, May 9.

Footballguys view: Guerendo is the team's fourth-round pick out of Louisville (Wisconsin transfer) that we're interested in from a dynasty perspective. He's a power player with more speed to his game. That means he's going to be a little 'bouncy' at times, but the 49ers will make sure that he makes better decisions in their wide-zone scheme. He's no.3 on the depth chart behind Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell, but Guerendo is most certainly capable of being a star (especially in that system) when he gets the chance.

  49ers | SF trying to lock up Brandon Aiyuk    Wed May 8, 09:50 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is still in the team's long-term plans as they try to sign him to a long-term deal.

Footballguys view: There's been plenty of buzz around this story for some time, but deals get done at deadlines in the NFL. The former first-round pick is playing on his fifth-year option in 2024, and he's set to count $14.1 million against the cap. The team keeps talking about how integral Aiyuk is for the team, and they denied rumblings about trading him before the draft. Now, it's time to pay the man his money. We could see a deal get done before the start of training camp.

  49ers | San Francisco not looking to move WRs    Fri May 3, 12:53 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel and WR Brandon Aiyuk are players the 49ers are not looking to trade, according to general manager John Lynch.

Footballguys view: They're not going to trade Samuel and Aiyuk, and that's something they've been expressing for some time. If the right offer came in - sure - but right now they'll move forward with their dynamic duo at receiver. Aiyuk is in the final year of his rookie deal, and the 49ers may not be able to afford keeping him around for the future. Stay tuned.

Louisville RB Isaac Guerendo was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 129th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Guerendo spent most of his college career at Wisconsin. He's fast (4.3 40-yard dash) and has good size (220 pounds). The 49ers know how to pick backs, so in dynasty formats we love Guerendo's potential in the NFL.

  49ers | Brandon Aiyuk looking for big deal    Thu Apr 25, 12:37 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is believed to be looking for more than $25 million per season in a new contract, sources told San Francisco Chronicle's Michael Silver.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have expressed interest in signing Aiyuk to a long-term deal. However, talk is cheap and actions speak much louder. We'll see if Aiyuk is dealt away during the draft. If not, we'll see if the 49ers hand him the bag he's looking for.

  49ers | San Francisco wants Brandon Aiyuk long-term    Mon Apr 22, 03:12 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk is seeking a new contract, and general manager John Lynch told reporters Monday, April 22, they want him with the team for the long-term.

Footballguys view: Aiyuk, who is currently set to make $14.1 million this seaso, is coming off a strong season where he recorded 75 receptions for 1,342 yards and seven touchdownss while serving as an invaluable cog in the 49ers' explosive offense. Assuming he remains with the team, Aiyuk should be viewed as a fantasy WR2.

  49ers | Brock Purdy open to running more    Tue Apr 16, 05:59 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy said he would be open for the team to add more designed runs for him as well as some zone read plays in the playbook.

Footballguys view: Purdy set a franchise record with 4,280 passing yards last season. He rushed for only 144 yards with two touchdowns on 39 carries. But Purdy, who ran for only 13 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries as a rookie, rushed for 48 yards on five carries in the comeback victory over the Lions in the NFC Championship Game. It was the second most of his career behind 57 yards on six carries against the Bengals during the 2023 regular season. Even though Purdy seems plenty capable, Kyle Shanahan will always be more interested in the passing numbers. So, fantasy managers hoping Purdy gains significant value as a runner are probably going to be disappointed in that aspect.

  49ers | Trent Taylor back for another stint with San Francisco    Tue Apr 16, 05:08 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Trent Taylor (Bears) signed a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers - the team that he spent the first four seasons of his career with from 2017 to 2020 - on Tuesday, April 16. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Taylor, 29, was a part of head coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch's first draft class as a fifth-round pick in 2017. He appeared in 41 games for San Francisco from 2017-2020, recording 79 catches for 731 yards with three touchdowns in his first stint with the club. Taylor has been effective as a punt returner, most recently serving in that role for Chicago last season. He averaged 8.2 yards per return on 23 attempts in 17 games. In 78 career games with the 49ers, Bengals, and Bears, Taylor has averaged 9.4 yards per punt return. He's also returned eight kicks, averaging 13.3 yards per attempt. His fantasy value will continue to be limited until/unless he gains a front-line role.
