  49ers | Jeff Wilson Jr. re-ups    Tue Jan 26, 06:55 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. signed a one-year contract Tuesday, Jan. 26, but financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: He was scheduled to be a restricted free agent at the end of the league year. Instead, Wilson is staying with the 49ers where he can be a valuable reserve player they can trust as a spot starter.

  49ers | Nick Mullens underwent surgery in December    Tue Jan 26, 03:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Nick Mullens - an impending free agent - underwent elbow surgery in late December of 2020, and the damage was not as extensive as initially feared. As a result, he was able to avoid Tommy John surgery and is expected to be fully recovered by the start of training camp, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: Mullens might have lost some money in the 2020 season. He was once again thrust into action as a starter this past season but did not look good. Mullens might not be more than a below-average backup.

  49ers | Javon Kinlaw gets some work done on knee    Tue Jan 26, 03:24 PM

Per a team spokesman, the injury is not related to the tendinitis Kinlaw dealt with in college, and he is expected to be a participant during the team's offseason program.

San Francisco 49ers WR Travis Benjamin is 'eager' to rejoin the team once the offseason program begins, according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows. Benjamin opted out of the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: Benjamin is a seasoned veteran with speed to burn but there's not much fantasy value there with his game. He might be hard-pressed to make the 53-man roster.

  49ers | Niners unlikely to draft 1st-round QB    Sat Jan 9, 03:08 PM

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch says the team isn't likely to draft a quarterback in the first round this spring. 'We certainly could (select a QB, but) I don't anticipate that right now. But we're so early in the process, we'll do what's best for this team,' Lynch said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. 'I do wanna make it clear, and I think Kyle and I have been fairly transparent since we've been here, we have a lot of belief in Jimmy Garoppolo. Where does that come from? It comes from the sample that we have, and when he's been out there, we've been better. We've been successful.'

Footballguys view: Garoppolo has two more years left on his contract but there's not much left in dead money. That means the 49ers could move on from him this offseason if they felt that was the best move. They have the no.12 pick in the first round and with five cornerbacks as UFAs in 2021 they might go defense with that first pick.

Footballguys view: Jauan Jennings was a player we appreciated during his time in college at the University of Tennessee. He's got a nice size/speed combination and was known for making defenders miss with the Volunteers. We'll continue monitoring Jennings but only in deep dynasty formats.

  49ers | San Francisco puts up fight in finale    Sun Jan 3, 07:52 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard completed 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks while rushing for 10 yards. RB Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 20 times for 76 yards and a score, while adding three receptions for 12 yards and a touchdown. WR Kendrick Bourne had a team-high 76 yards on five grabs, while TE George Kittle was good for seven catches and 68 yards on nine targets. WR Richie James also checked in with 66 yards on three grabs, while TE Ross Dwelley was good for 21 yards on two catches and WR River Cracraft ended with two catches and 17 yards. LB Fred Warner led the way on defense with a game-high 10 total stops, a sack, a tackle for loss and two quarterback hits.

Footballguys view: The 49ers season was pockmarked by devastating injuries on both sides of the ball, but they remained a competitive team almost every week. They have a big decision to make at quarterback this offseason and will pick 12th.
