J. Tartt - DB
Tartt wrapped up nine tackles (seven solo) in Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.
Tartt made a healthy return from a shoulder injury last week against the Cardinals, recording three tackles in a game that didn't see a 49er defender get more than four. Monday's nine-tackle performance is a better indicator of the upside the safety possesses in IDP formats. Assuming he can stay off the injury list, Tartt is a good bet to lead all San Francisco defensive backs in tackles this season.

R. Foster - LB
Foster had nine tackles (eight solo) in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.
An unusual game script led to a season-low three tackles for Foster last week, but he got back on track with a team-leading nine tackles against the Packers. The 49ers' field general was not limited by the minor shoulder injury he sustained last week, staying on the field for every defensive snap Monday. Foster will be very busy trying to run down the dynamic Todd Gurley in next week's division matchup against the Rams.

D. Buckner - DL
Buckner recorded two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.
Buckner brought his sack total up to 4.5 after enduring a three-week drought in the category. The 24-year-old actually had a second sack wiped out by a Richard Sherman illegal contact penalty on the Packers' game-winning drive. Buckner's tackle totals leave a lot to be desired (23 through six weeks), but the defensive tackle is well on pace to break his previous career-high of six sacks this season.

R. Gould - K
Gould nailed all three of his field-goal attempts (43, 44, 46) and went 3-for-3 on extra-point tries in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.
Gould bounced back in a big way after missing his lone field-goal attempt last week against the Cardinals. The 35-year-old is now 13-for-14 (93 percent) on field-goal tries this season. The 49ers' offense has looked surprisingly dynamic under backup quarterback C.J. Beathard over the last three weeks, which bodes well for Gould's prospects as a fantasy option moving forward.

K. Juszczyk - RB
Juszczyk caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in Monday's loss to Green Bay.
Juszczyk was unable to match last week's season-high of 75 yards, but his three receptions ranked fourth among all San Francisco receiving options Monday. The 27-year-old is averaging 2.8 receptions and 37.8 yards per game this season. Those numbers are exceptional for a fullback, but lacking in terms of a standard-league running back when you factor in the lack of carries (just one carry through six weeks).

K. Bourne - WR
Bourne caught one pass (three targets) for 22 yards in Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.
Bourne was elevated to third on the receiving depth chart with both Trent Taylor (back) and Dante Pettis (knee) sitting out Monday's contest. Despite the increased role, the 23-year-old saw fewer targets than either of his previous two games (four and seven respectively) when he served as the 49ers' fourth receiver. Bourne does have two touchdowns on the year, but his sporadic target share keeps him off the fantasy radar for the time being.
Added 5:41 am (EST)
P. Garcon - WR
Garcon (shoulder/knee) caught four passes (six targets) for 37 yards in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.
Garcon was able to suit up after nursing a couple of minor injuries during the week. The veteran recorded the same number of receptions as fellow starter Marquise Goodwin, but it was the latter who turned in the stronger fantasy day (four catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns). Garcon is averaging 3.3 receptions and 37.5 yards per game with no touchdowns through six weeks, limiting his fantasy value despite his status as a starting wideout.
Added 5:37 am (EST)
G. Kittle - TE
Kittle (knee) caught four of six targets for 30 yards in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.
Kittle had been dealing with a minor knee injury during practice this week, but he was able to start and finish Monday's contest. The tight end was tied for the team lead in targets, but it was Marquise Goodwin who served as C.J. Beathard's preferred deep threat in this one. Kittle may cede some big-play opportunities so long as Goodwin stays healthy, but he remains a key contributor in San Francisco's passing game heading into Sunday's matchup with the Rams.
