Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

The 49ers have re-signed Kyle Juszczyk to a five-year, $27-milliom deal, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

General manager John Lynch had hinted something was close, and the 49ers have officially locked up their fullback ahead of free agency. From a real-life perspective, Juszczyk is a huge piece for Kyle Shanahan’s offense,

Kyle Juszczyk (hamstring) is week-to-week.

The Niners have probably been hit harder than anyone by injuries this summer, and Juszczyk is the next player that looks uncertain for the season opener. From a fantasy perspective, this doesn't make a huge impact, but Juszczyk is a key player for San Francisco in real life.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

The 49ers exercised their team option on Kyle Juszczyk, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

This was obviously fully expected, as San Francisco values Juszczyk—who had a very strong Super Bowl—a ton. The "offensive weapon" for the Niners doesn't have a ton of fantasy value as a fullback, but his presence will remain a positive for Kyle Shanahan's offense in real life.

Kyle Juszczyk (knee) is set to return for the 49ers in Week 10.

After missing the previous four games with his MCL injury, Juszczyk will return on the low end of his four-to-six-week timeframe. Juszczyk is a definite boost for the Niners in real life, including for the San Francisco running backs, but he's not a recommended fantasy pickup.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk has a sprained MCL.

The Niners fullback is expected to miss four-to-six weeks with the injury. It's a big loss for San Francisco in the short term, but at least this isn't a season-ending knee injury. The offense will have to get by without Juszczyk for now, but they'll get a boost when he returns to the lineup. Juszczyk's injury doesn't have huge fantasy implications, but the entire offense is better when he's available.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk leaves game with apparent knee injury.

Juszczyk was delivering a block on a nice run by Matt Breida, and he took a shot to the knee and immediately held the knee. After limping over to the sideline, Juszczyk is now being carted to the locker room. Unfortunately, it looks like a serious injury for the Niners' fullback, and it'll be a huge blow to the team if he does indeed miss an extended period of time like it appears will be the case. Juszczyk had two receptions for 20 yards before leaving tonight's game, and he also helped pave running lanes for Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman as they gash Cleveland's defense.

Kyle Juszczyk loses fumble in Week 17.

Juszczyk carried two times for nine yards along with one reception for 15 yards and the fumble lost against the Rams. The Niners fullback/offensive weapon's season ends with eight carries for 30 yards and 30 receptions for 324 yards and one touchdown. He's not a fantasy option heading into 2019.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches one pass in Week 15 win.

It went for three yards. Juszczyk should get a target or two next week against the Bears, but he's not a recommended fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches two passes against the Broncos.

Juszczyk gained 21 yards on his two Week 14 receptions. He's not a highly-recommended fantasy option outside of very deep PPR leagues.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk caught three passes for 20 yards in San Francisco's loss to the Seahawks.

Juszczyk has 26 receptions for 285 yards and a score this season, but he's not a recommended fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk gets three touches in Niners' loss.

Juszczyk carried once for three yards and added two receptions for ten yards in the Week 10 loss to the Giants. Juszczyk is a better real-life contributor than he is a trusted fantasy option right now.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk gets three touches in Week 9.

Juszczyk carried once for one yard and added two receptions for ten yards versus the Raiders. Juszczyk is more of a real-life asset for the Niners than he is a fantasy option right now.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk gets two carries against the Cardinals

Juszczyk gained ten yards on his two attempts in the Niners' Week 8 loss. Juszczyk isn't getting enough touches to be a viable fantasy option right now.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk gets three touches against the Rams.

Juszczyk carried one time for -5 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards in the Week 7 loss. The Niners' fullback has some FLEX appeal in PPR leagues, but he's a risky play in fantasy lineups.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk loses a fumble against the Packers.

Juszczyk played well for the most part as a blocker and receiver for the Niners, but he had a lost fumble after making a nice 21-yard catch on a corner route. Overall, Juszczyk had three receptions for 30 yards with the fumble lost. Juszczyk is more of a PPR FLEX option for deep leagues.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches six passes in Niners' loss.

Juszczyk carried once for 12 yards and added six receptions (on seven targets) for 75 yards against the Cardinals. Matt Breida injured his ankle in the game, which led to a bigger role for Juszczyk. If Breida misses more time, Juszczyk would enter the FLEX conversation particularly in PPR leagues.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches two passes in Week 4.

Juszczyk gained 15 yards on his two reception against the Chargers. Juszczyk is a real-life contributor but is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk scores in Week 3.

Juszczyk got open for a 35-yard score on a great play design by Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan. Overall, Juszczyk had two receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown. Juszczyk will make big plays this season, but he's a better real-life player than he is a fantasy asset.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches three passes in Week 2 win.

They went for 13 yards. The fullback should remain involved on a weekly basis in Kyle Shanahan's offense, but he is just a very deep desperation option in PPR leagues.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches 56-yard pass in Week 1.

Juszczyk always has the chance to break free for a big gain in Kyle Shanahan's offense, which is what he did against the Vikings. The Niners fullback is a key member of the Niners, but his role as a ball-carrier and receiver isn't big enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk caught four passes for 19 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.

Juszczyk finishes his first season in San Francisco with 33 receptions for 315 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed seven times for 31 yards. The Harvard grad will be on the field for Kyle Shanahan next season, but he won't be a fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk leads the 49ers in Week 16 receiving.

Juszczyk showed why the Niners paid him so much money as an offensive weapon in this one, catching five passes for 76 yards against the Jaguars. It's risky to expect a similar performance next week, though, so keep Juszczyk out of your fantasy lineup.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches three passes in Week 14.

Juszczyk was a big weapon for Jimmy Garoppolo in the win over the Texans, catching three of four targets for 64 yards, including a long of 31 yards. Juszczyk isn't a fantasy option, but he's a big contributor to the Niners in real life.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk gets four touches against the Bears.

Juszczyk had one carry for three yards and three receptions for 20 yards in the Week 13 victory for the Niners. He'll chip in on offense and is a very good lead blocker, but Juszczyk doesn't get enough touches to be a viable fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk catches both targets in Week 12.

He gained eight yards on his two receptions, and the versatile fullback isn't a fantasy option right now.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk caught five passes for 27 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

He also rushed once for no gain and lost a fumble. The fullback isn't a fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk scores in Week 5.

The 49ers offensive weapon carried once for three yards along with two receptions on 14 yards and a receiving touchdown. The touchdown was on a shuffle pass late in the game. Though he's a great real-life contributor, Juszczyk is not a reliable option in fantasy lineups.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszczyk (neck) ruled out during Week 3 game against the Rams.

The fullback/offensive weapon was injured on the final play of a touchdown drive that was capped by a one-yard touchdown by Carlos Hyde. Jusczczyk had a 34-yard reception on his only target before leaving the game.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Kyle Juszsczyk gets three touches in Week 1.

The offensive weapon had one carry for no yards and two receptions (on four targets) for 17 yards. He left briefly with an injury but thankfully was able to return to the game. The former Raven will likely score some touchdowns this season, but he's not a recommended fantasy option.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

FB Kyle Juszczyk officially signs with the Niners.

Juszczyk will help the offense as a good lead blocker and very capable receiver out of the backfield. The 49ers are getting some steady players on their offense, which will make things easier for new head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

The 49ers will sign FB Kyle Juszczyk, according to Adam Schefter.

This is a nice fit. He'll have a nice role in Kyle Shanahan's offense. Juszczyk isn't a fantasy option, but he'll be a productive player for the Niners.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

The 49ers are also interested in FB Kyle Juszczyk, according to Tom Pelissero.

He'd be a great fit in Kyle Shanahan's offense. Juszczyk is perhaps the best receiving fullback in the NFL, and he obviously is a good lead blocker. It looks like Juszczyk is drawing a lot of interest and will get a nice deal in free agency.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

Adam Schefter reports the Bills are the favorites to get Kyle Juszczyk.

He made the Pro Bowl for the first time last season, and there is interest for him as he will become a free agent tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET. He'd be a welcome addition for LeSean McCoy.

Kyle Juszczyk | 49ers FB

The Browns are interested in Ravens fullback Kyle Juszczyk, according to Adam Schefter.

Juszczyk's contract with the Ravens is up, and the Browns have a ton of cap space if they want to offer a bigger deal than Baltimore. Juszczyk would probably like to remain in Baltimore, but if there's enough interest from the Browns, perhaps he could switch teams within the division.

Juszczyk clutch, but Ravens are eliminated from playoff-contention with Christmas loss.

Baltimore's fullback rushed twice for 15 yards, including the would-be game-winning touchdown if not for Antonio Brown's heroics for Pittsburgh. Juszczyk also caught two passes for 10 yards, and has been the Ravens most-trusted pass protector in the backfield. He's not a fantasy option, but Juszczyk is one of the better fullbacks in the league.
