Fantasy implications of 49ers-Packers injury report

We take a look at the 49ers-Packers final injury report and break down the fantasy football implications.

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers square off Sunday evening for a chance to go to Super Bowl LIV to face either the Chiefs or the Titans. Both teams come into this game relatively healthy, but there are a few question marks coming into their matchup.

San Francisco 49ers

George Kittle

Kittle didn’t practice on Wednesday with a sore ankle, but was a full participant on Thursday and Friday and should be a full-go against the Packers. He had a big game when these teams met in Week 12, catching all six of his targets for 136 yards and a touchdown. The Packers tight end defense is below average and Kittle is the 49ers best receiver. Unless the Packers don’t show up, Kittle should get enough work to put up a good fantasy game.

Kwon Alexander

Alexander had his reps limited this week in practice due to his pectoral injury, but he was taken off the injury report and should be able to play even more than he did last week. He boosts the run defense as well as the defense against receiving backs. Aaron Jones will have a tough time this week if Alexander is truly a full participant.

Dee Ford

Ford got a full practice in on Friday and was taken off the injury report. He has dealt with leg injuries much of the season but did play on pass-rushing downs last week against the Vikings and recorded a sack. He didn’t have any setbacks, so should again be used as a pass rusher, adding to a murderer’s row of strong pass rushers for the 49ers this week.

Green Bay Packers

Allen Lazard

The Packers had a lot of players getting rest or being limited this week in practice, but only fullback Danny Vitale, who missed last week’s game as well. Lazard isn’t listed on the final report, but suffered an ankle injury last week and saw limited practice work on Wednesday and Thursday before getting a full workload on Friday. Lazard has become one of Aaron Rodgers favorite receivers not names Davante Adams, so his availability is a positive for their passing offense, but after Adams, it is hard to trust another receiver in daily fantasy.
