Is DeAndre Hopkins playing week 9?

Hopkins (hamstring) got in and out of last week’s game e failed to practice this week, but is still listed as “moot” for Sunday’s late afternoon race in San Francisco.

The Arizona WR star has played despite missed trainings numerous times in the past, including two this season. At this point, though, it’s hard to expect it to fit – fantasy football owners should have alternative plans, especially with Arizona playing a game in the late afternoon. With AJ Green (COVID) likely out too, Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore could see many targets and have considerable value. If Hopkins plays, expect him to be used sparingly again, but it would still be worth using at least as WR3.

Is Deebo Samuel playing week 9?

Samuel (calf) it was limited in practice on Thursdays and Fridays, and 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan has hinted that stallion WR will be a legitimate decision on playing time this week.

If Samuel is active, he is a must to start, although of course there is a risk that he will be eliminated soon. However, you have to take this opportunity. If Samuel is out, Brandon Aiyuk would likely see a big increase in touches / goals and be worth a WR3 spot.

As always, Kittle is a must to get started when active. He’s disappointed this year when he’s healthy, but his positive side is even higher than any other TE you might consider playing. If Kittle is a surprise scratch, then Ross Dwelley would start in his place, but that’s not a real fancy option.
