3rd quarter update: Wilson scored his third touchdown of the game in the third quarter and then had a defender roll up his left foot. Wilson limped off the field and then took a cart from the sideline to the locker room.
Mid-game update: This is the Jeff Wilson Jr. show for the time being. Midway through the second quarter, he has 10 carries for 48 yards. JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon have no carries at this point.
Game day late morning update: ESPN’s Dan Graziano is reporting, “Hasty has really turned heads in SF. Wilson is expected to play & McKinnon will likely get most work BUT Hasty is someone they are excited about.”
Game day update: ESPN projects Jerick McKinnon at 15.0 points, Jeff Wilson at 6.3 points, and JaMycal Hasty at 2.2 points in PPR leagues. Wilson was sidelined last week but is expected to play this week. Hasty ended up as the primary back in the ground game last week after Raheem Mostert got hurt. Wilson could emerge as an option this week, but my gut says keep an eye on Hasty.
Raheem Mostert has been ruled out of the San Francisco 49ers’ Week 7 matchup against the New England Patriots after tweaking his ankle against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. The 49ers starter has two capable running backs behind him on the depth chart who will split his workload. Let’s discuss the fantasy football upside of each option.
Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers RBs JaMycal Hasty, Jerick McKinnon
JaMycal Hasty was the back running between the tackles when Mostert went down in Week 6. He tallied 37 rushing yards on nine carries and was effective moving the chains late in the game. McKinnon was used sparingly against the Rams and tallied 18 rushing yards on six carries. He also caught two passes 10 yards. He’s thought of as more of a receiving back but could get a bump in touches with Mostert and Tevin Coleman (knee) out.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
New England is better against the pass than the run this season, so I’d bank on Hasty’s coming out party over a big game from McKinnon.
