San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) have both been ruled out for Week 2 against the Bengals. Consider both Taylor and Hurd week-to-week for now. The Niners should go with three-wide sets of Marquise Goodwin, rookie Deebo Samuel and Dante Pettis this weekend, but Pettis played just two snaps in Week 1. None of the team's wideouts are particularly enticing from a fantasy perspective against Cincinnati. Goodwin and Samuel are your best bets as WR4/5 options in deeper leagues. This receiving corps will have a lot of moving parts once Taylor and Hurd are back in the picture.
San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Jalen Hurd (back) and Trent Taylor (foot) did not participate in practice on Wednesday. Neither Hurd nor Taylor are expected to play in Week 2 on the road against the Bengals. Hurd is worth stashing in dynasty/keeper formats, but neither are attractive in redraft formats for the time being. With Dante Pettis also fighting through an injury, San Fran's receiving corps is very bland for fantasy purposes among Marquise Goodwin, rookie Deebo Samuel and Richie James. The only pass-catcher worse using in starting lineups in standard-sized leagues is tight end George Kittle.
San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Buccaneers. Taylor and Hurd are both week-to-week for now and can be left to the waiver wire in most redraft leagues. In a good matchup against the Bucs, Dante Pettis, the team's No. 1 wideout, will have sneaky WR3 upside in the opener in a game that could feature a lot of points. Marquise Goodwin, Kendrick Bourne and rookie Deebo Samuel will fight for targets behind Pettis and tight end George Kittle.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that rookie wide receiver Jalen Hurd (back) will not practice on Wednesday and probably won't play in Week 1 on Sunday against the Buccaneers. Hurd has gone from "day-to-day" to "week-to-week." Hurd is doubtful to play in the season opener and could also miss Week 2 at this rate. The rookie is purely a dynasty stash in 2019. Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis will be the team's top two receivers in a sneaky good matchup this Sunday, while Kendrick Bourne, Richie James and rookie Deebo Samuel will fight for work as the No. 3.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that wide receiver Jalen Hurd's (back) injury is more serious than initially feared. The Niners don't think Hurd's injury puts him in danger of landing on Injured Reserve, but Shanahan said it's "not looking as good" for Week 1 against the Buccaneers. With Hurd unlikely to suit up in the regular season opener and Dante Pettis also slowed by injury, we could be looking at Marquise Goodwin, Jordan Matthews and rookie Deebo Samuel seeing most of the work against a weak overall defense in the Bucs. Hurd, a third-round pick this year, is really only worth owning in dynasty leagues in 2019.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that he doesn't know if rookie wide receiver Jalen Hurd (back) will be ready for the regular season opener. It'll likely depend on how much practice he can get in the next two weeks. Behind Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor and Jordan Matthews, it's unlikely that Hurd will make much of an impact in his rookie season. It also won't help if he misses games early in the season. Fellow rookie Deebo Samuel is the better gamble in deeper leagues for depth.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd (back) did not play Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Hurd also sat out last Monday due to back tightness so two consecutive missed games is not a positive development. The 2019 third-round pick made noise with two touchdowns in the first preseason contest but has dealt with nagging injuries even before he was a Niner. Hurd has the size to be a legitimate red zone threat but his fantasy impact will be muted until he sees the field.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd (back) played just eight snaps in Mondays preseason game against the Denver Broncos. This is a letdown after Hurd exploded for two touchdowns on five targets in his first game, but head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated Hurd dealt with back stiffness all week and was therefore limited. The 2019 third-round pick is a monstrous 65 and 226 pounds and could develop into a reliable red-zone threat. However, even with slot receiver Trent Taylor (foot) sidelined, Hurds playing time appears uncertain with Richie James Jr. still in the mix. Although the upside is undeniable, Hurd is a just a late round lottery ticket heading into fantasy drafts.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd caught three passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason win over the Dallas Cowboys. Hurd caught touchdowns from both C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens, and the rookie made a big impact at the right time, as the team announced Saturday that wide receiver Trent Taylor is sidelined with a broken foot. Hurd could earn his way into some of Taylor's snaps while he's sidelined, and he has a ton of upside when he's on the football field. Keep an eye on his usage as the preseason continues, but it's still too early to draft him in re-draft if you're drafting early.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd is getting reps in the slot and shaping up to be a red zone threat. The teams third-round pick from Baylor was a former running back and while he hasnt lined up in the backfield, has taken a few carries from the flank. Hurd is a monstrous 65, 226 pounds and could transform into a legitimate scoring machine. With experience in the backfield, a fantasy managers dream is to have Hurd qualify for multiple positions. While his playing time isnt guaranteed, Hurds versatility could do wonders for his fantasy relevance.
San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Jalen Hurd isnt backing down to veteran bantering early in training camp. The third-round pick was recently involved in two altercations, after which head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated he doesnt endorse fights but supports guys getting competitive and angry. Hurd will need to straddle that line while battling amongst a crowded receiving corps behind presumed starters Dante Pettis and Deebo Samuel. Hurd, a converted running back from Baylor rising to 65 and 226 pounds, could be a versatile weapon for the Niners. Rumors suggest Hurd could line up all over the field, possibly earning him multiple positional tags and making him universally more valuable in fantasy. First, hell need a strong camp to earn a clear path to reps and avoid any serious scrums in the workplace.
At 65 and 226 pounds, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd could be a versatile asset entering 2019. A former running back with the size to play tight end, Hurd has proven he can learn a new position and could be a matchup nightmare for defenses. His biggest hurdle will be learning head coach Kyle Shanahans complex offense. Hurds profile and skillset are key differentiators compared to the Niners other receivers Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin and second-round pick Deebo Samuel. If Hurd transitions to various positions, he could earn multiple tags, making him universally more valuable in fantasy. With a strong training camp, Hurd could earn a path to reps and would emerge as a standard league sleeper to accompany an already-strong dynasty value.
San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Jalen Hurd could eventually transition to being a tight end in the NFL based on his size and hands, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Hurd also has experience as a running back and could see time in the backfield, if needed. Hurd gives the Niners some flexibility on offense, but it sounds as though they'd prefer him to play heavier and line up as a tight end instead of a receiver. The 49ers already have one of the best tight ends in the game in George Kittle, so Hurd will likely be a developmental project the next year or two.
