| Raheem Mostert expected to land on IR|
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 19, 8:00 pm
|49ers’ HC Kyle Shanahan said RB Raheem Mostert “most likely" will go on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)|
FFToday's Take: The Niners' backfield is a jumbled mess now and that doesn't even include Tevin Coleman, who is eligible to come off IR whenever his knee is right. Jerick McKinnon figures to benefit the most from Mostert's absence from a fantasy perspective, but Jeff Wilson (who missed Week 6 with a calf injury) and JaMycal Hasty could easily emerge as the lead back. Expect Hasty to get a long look after showing well versus the Rams following Mostert's injury.

Knee injury for Mostert
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 11, 7:00 am
|49ers’ RB Raheem Mostert (knee) and WR Deebo Samuel (illness), both listed as questionable for today’s game against the Dolphins, both “should be good (to play)”, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Mostert has missed the last two weeks with a knee injury. His return will cap the ceiling of Jerick McKinnon who saw 21 touches last week against the Eagles. We don't expect Mostert to see a full workload so McKinnon is probably the better fantasy play in Week 5.
| San Fran likely w/o top two RBs in Week 3|
Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman hurt vs. Jets
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 21, 6:20 pm
|49ers’ RB Tevin Coleman is expected to miss “multiple weeks” with the knee injury he suffered Sunday, per source. So 49ers are expected to be without Coleman and Raheem Mostert on Sunday at the Giants. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)|
FFToday's Take: Mostert reportedly suffered a sprained MCL that "should" keep him out for the next game against the Giants and maybe a bit longer. Undrafted rookie free agent JaMycal Hasty is expected to be elevated from the practice squad to join Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson as the three active backs in his absence. McKinnon would likely draw the start be the recommended fantasy play, but he may be kept under 15 touches given his injury history. Nevertheless, he would be a high-upside flex option.
| Torn ACL feared for Jalen Hurd|
Missed entire rookie season with back injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 17, 4:30 pm
|49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said, though the results of the MRI are not back yet, he’d be surprised if it’s not an ACL tear for WR Jalen Hurd. Shanahan said he expects Hurd back in 2021. (NBC Sports Bay Area)|
FFToday's Take: The player who once started ahead of Alvin Kamara at running back at Tennessee hasn't been able to catch a break in the NFL yet, as a preseason back injury cost him all of his 2019 season. Hurd was making an impression early in camp and was ticketed for the "big slot" role in the offense, but it appears that will have to wait. With Deebo Samuel also injured and uncertain for Week 1, the drumbeat for rookie Brandon Aiyuk and Jerick McKinnon should continue to pick up.
