SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Star tight end George Kittle will miss the San Francisco 49ers game against the Seattle Seahawks with injuries to his knee and ankle.

Kittle is listed as inactive Monday night after San Francisco activated tight end Garrett Celek from the physically unable to perform list earlier in the day.

Kittle got hurt Oct. 31 against Arizona and didn't practice all week. He was listed as doubtful for the game.

The Niners are also without kicker Robbie Gould (right quadriceps), cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (foot, quadriceps), quarterback C.J. Beathard, running back Jeff Wilson Jr., tackle Justin Skule and defensive tackle Jullian Taylor.

San Francisco did get three key starters back from injury with left tackle Joe Staley, right tackle Mike McGlinchey and fullback Kyle Juszczyk all active after missing time with injuries.

The inactive players for Seattle are guard Phil Haynes (ankle), safety Delano Hill (elbow) cornerback Akeem King, receiver Jaron Brown, receiver John Ursua, running back C.J. Prosise and defensive end L.J. Collier.

San Francisco also waived cornerback Dontae Johnson.

Player Notes
Raheem Mostert Nov 11 7:13pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 10 game.

Fantasy Spin: Mostert is coming off a disappointing Week 10 performance and probably will only see a handful of touches this week. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Josh Gordon Nov 11 7:13pm ET

Seattle Seahawks WR Josh Gordon (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 10 game.

Fantasy Spin: Gordon has been with the Seahawks for a little over a week, so he may see limited snaps this week against the San Francisco 49ers. Fantasy players probably should see him play in a game before considering him as a starting option.

Kalen Ballage Nov 11 6:50pm ET

Now with the backfield almost completely to himself, Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage did little in Miami's 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, rushing 20 times for just 48 yards. Following the trade of Kenyan Drake and the suspension of Mark Walton, Ballage was virtually the only option out of the backfield for Miami, with just two carries going to backup Jordan Laird. Ballage may have the job to himself for the foreseeable future but Miami continues to be a subpar offense, making him only a desperate play for most fantasy owners. Until he and the Dolphins can prove they are able to manage more than the 229 yards of offense that they did on Sunday, leave Ballage on the waiver wire where he belongs.

DeVante Parker Nov 11 6:40pm ET

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target in a 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, with his 10 targets leading the team. Parker could only haul in five of those passes, however, finishing with just 69 yards receiving in the win, and failing to score a touchdown for only the second time in the past six games. It may have been a disappointing final line, as the Dolphin offense only managed 229 yards of offense on the day, but Parker is seemingly firmly entrenched as Miami's number-one receiver, making him a viable flex option in most weeks. Just not for this week, as the Dolphins will face a Buffalo Bills Defense in Week 11 that's allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers in 2019.

Will Parks Nov 11 6:33pm ET

Denver Broncos S Will Parks (hand) will participate in practice Tuesday, Nov. 12, while CB Bryce Callahan (foot) will try to practice.

From TheHuddle

Devin Funchess Nov 11 6:23pm ET

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) is expected to participate in practice this week.

Fantasy Spin: Funchess probably is a few weeks away from returning to the lineup but should be at least a limited participant during practice this week. He should have some fantasy value when he returns and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option.

From TheHuddle

Jacoby Brissett Nov 11 6:13pm ET

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) likely will be the starting quarterback for the Week 11 game if he is able to be a full participant during practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Fantasy Spin: The Colts decided to hold Brissett out last week so he could rest his knee, so fantasy players will need to monitor his practice participation during the week. He would be facing a good Jacksonville Jaguars defense if he plays but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Nov 11 6:10pm ET

After winning his second-straight game, head coach Brian Flores declared that Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick would remain the starter for "the foreseeable future". Fitzpatrick didn't exactly shine in the Dolphins 16-12 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10, throwing for 169 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception, salvaging 12 fantasy points on the day with an 11-yard touchdown run late in the second half. Save for the one touchdown drive, Miami's offense was mostly inept in victory, totaling just 229 yards on the day. Fitzpatrick needs to stay on the waiver wire in Week 11, as the Dolphins will face a Buffalo Bills team that's allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in 2019.

Mike Gesicki Nov 11 5:50pm ET

A popular streaming option headed into a Week 10 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki scored zero fantasy points in Miami's 16-12 victory on the road. The second-year tight end had three receptions for 28 yards, with a lost fumble on Miami's first drive negating what few points Gesicki would earn on the day. While his six targets were second on the team to the ten of Devante Parker, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick targeted Gesicki mostly on shorter routes, throwing him only one ball down the field. With teammate Preston Williams out for the remainder of the season, Gesicki could occasionally be worth a look as a streaming candidate given his likely volume of targets. Just probably not when the Dolphins host the Bills in Week 11, as Buffalo is allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to tight ends in 2019.

Dontae Johnson Nov 11 5:13pm ET

San Francisco 49ers TE Garrett Celek (back) was activated from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Nov. 11. The team also waived CB Dontae Johnson.

From TheHuddle

Antonio Callaway Nov 11 5:03pm ET

Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway's benching was only for the Week 10 game, and he will return to the lineup for Week 11, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens.

Fantasy Spin: Callaway likely will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Browns this week against a good Pittsburgh Steelers defense. Fantasy players can consider benching Callaway if they have better options available.
