Week 6 saw yet another big day out of the Miami Dolphins offense, as Raheem Mostert and Tyreek Hill once again went off for huge fantasy numbers. They are now averaging a huge 37.2 real life points, which leads the league, while the 49ers are second with 30.7 points per game. As far as fantasy goes, the Dolphins are the team.

Injury news to monitor
Christian McCaffrey is dealing with ribs and oblique injuries and is getting tests on Monday. We hopefully will know more sooner than later, but Jordan Mason and Eli Mitchell are both viable pickups if McCaffrey misses time. The 49ers take on the 1-5 Vikings on MNF this week.
Kyren Williams has an ankle injury that could keep him out this week against the Steelers. His backup, Ronnie Rivers, is going on I.R. with a knee sprain. Right now that leaves Zach Evans as the next back up. He has some upside, so is worth a waiver grab.
Aaron Jones missed Week 5 with a hamstring injury that he had returned from the previous week. Now with an extra week to rest during the bye, he looks like he may be back after practicing on Monday. If so, he gets a great matchup with the Broncos.
David Montgomery is reportedly going to miss a game or two with his rib injury. The change of pace back, Jahmyr Gibbs, has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, but looks close to returning. Craig Reynolds should take over Montgomery’s role while he is out.
Roschon Johnson missed last week due to a concussion. He would have been in line to start, as Khalil Herbert was put on I.R. with an ankle injury. D’Onta Foreman and Darryton Evans split work with those two out. If Johnson can be cleared in time to play this week, he should take over as the lead back against the Raiders. The Bears will be without Justin Fields, as Tyson Bagent will take over for the injured QB.
Jeff Wilson appeared close to being elevated to the 53-man roster from I.R. this week, but they decided against it. He likely will see that elevation this week though, as he’s got practices under his belt and Chris Brooks doesn’t look like he’ll play due to an ankle injury.
Deebo Samuel is considered day-to-day with a shoulder injury. It appears that he managed to avoid a serious injury, but he could end up questionable this week.
Diontae Johnson is eligible to return from I.R. this week and reports have pointed to that happening. As long as he can practice in full this week, he should end up playing.
