Thursday update: Flowers begins the week listed as a limited practice participant on Thursday. With the game taking place on Monday, he will have an extra day to heal up.

Fantasy football analysis

Flowers is having a solid rookie season. He has brought in 65 of his 92 targets for 680 yards and three touchdowns. His receptions and yardage both lead the team. Flowers heads into this week as the overall WR34 in half-PPR scoring formats. The 49ers allow the 15th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers.

If Flowers is active, he can be started in 10-team leagues or larger based on his target share. If he misses the game, teammate Odell Beckham Jr. figures to get more targets and could be started in 12-team leagues or larger. Nelson Agholor would also become an interesting DFS dart throw if Flowers misses the game.
