News: 49ers S Curtis Taylor is out for the season. The team placed Taylor on injured reserve Monday with a strained quad. It's the second time in as many seasons Taylor has had a season-ending injury. A hip ailment he suffered last Nov. 29 against Jacksonville ended his rookie season prematurely.
Analysis: Taylor is nothing more than a backup safety for the 49ers and had just three tackles in five games this season. He obviously has no Fantasy value at this time.
News: 49ers S Curtis Taylor is expected to miss at least a month with a quad strain. It's the second serious injury in as many seasons for Taylor, who went on injured reserve after suffering a hip strain last Nov. 29 against Jacksonville.
Analysis: Taylor is nothing more than a backup safety for the 49ers and has no Fantasy appeal. Continue to ignore him.
News: Rookie safety Curtis Taylor's season is over for the 49ers. The team placed Taylor on injured reserve Tuesday with a strained hip, which he injured after being hit on punt coverage late in the first quarter of Sunday's 20-3 win over Jacksonville. San Francisco promoted fullback Brit Miller from the practice squad to fill the roster spot. The 49ers also signed receiver Rodney Wright to the practice squad.
Analysis: Taylor, a seventh-round draft pick out of Louisiana State, had one tackle in seven games and made eight stops on special teams. He is not a relevant Fantasy option and should remain on waivers in all IDP formats. Miller and Wright are also not worth owning.
News: The 49ers did not practice Monday, but they listed the following players on the injury report for Thursday's game against Chicago as did not participate: S Michael Lewis (quadricep), RB Michael Robinson (shoulder), DE Justin Smith (not injury related), LB Takeo Spikes (shoulder) and S Curtis Taylor (shin). They are listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Chicago.
Analysis: Taylor has minimal Fantasy value. Ignore him in all IDP leagues when healthy.
News: The 49ers listed the following players as inactive for Week 3 at Minnesota: CB Marcus Hudson, DB Curtis Taylor, LB Marques Harris, WR Brandon Jones, WR Jason Hill and DT Ricky Jean Francois.
Analysis: None of these players does enough statistically to matter in Fantasy even when active. Leave them on waivers.
News: The 49ers drafted safety Curtis Taylor with a seventh-round pick in the 2009 draft.
Analysis: Taylor has nice size and was a quality defender at LSU, but he's injury prone and not expected to contribute much for a couple of years. He's no better than a late-round pick in deeper rookie-only drafts this summer.
