Frank Gore doesn't put in full practice Friday
49ers receivers dealing with injuries
Fortunately, that actually represents an improvement for Manningham, who had been held out of Thursday's practice. His status for Week 16 against the Falcons Monday will be determined following Saturday's session.
Toe still limiting Tony Gonzalez
Matt Flynn getting another start
With Aaron Rodgers officially ruled out, the
Flynn is coming off his best game of the season, as he passed for 299 yards and four touchdowns in a win over the Cowboys.

Is Timothy Wright worth the risk in Week 16?
Wright has touchdowns in consecutive outings against Buffalo and San Francisco, and he's scored at least seven Fantasy points in three of his past four games. He could easily keep it going because we've seen when he's involved he tends to do well, having scored at least seven Fantasy points in five of the six games when he's had at least five targets.
But the Rams have done well against tight ends all season. Only Martellus Bennett and Vernon Davis have reached double digits in Fantasy points against St. Louis, including matchups with Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten, Greg Olsen, Delanie Walker, Coby Fleener and Jimmy Graham, who was limited to two catches for 25 yards last week.
I'm nervous with Wright in this matchup, and I don't trust him as a starter in a potential championship game. He is more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end this week.

Vincent Jackson looks to keep scoring streak alive
Jackson has at least 11 Fantasy points in a standard league in consecutive games, and he's scored in three of his past five outings. And this is a matchup he can exploit.
The Rams have been abused by No. 1 receivers all season with 13 of 14 scoring at least eight Fantasy points with 12 touchdowns allowed. Last week, Marques Colston had eight catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in St. Louis, and we expect Jackson to have similar success.
He remains a must-start Fantasy option in all leagues, and we hope Jackson's scoring streak continues in this fantastic matchup on the road.

Bobby Rainey could be flex option Week 16
Rainey has shown he can be useful in quality matchups and struggle in difficult ones. He has extended action in six games and finished with double digits in Fantasy points against Miami, Atlanta and Buffalo. He's also had six points or less against Detroit, Carolina and San Francisco.
The Rams enter this game having allowed 10 running backs to score double digits in Fantasy points with 16 touchdowns. It's a matchup Rainey can have success in, but it's not a slam dunk, especially on the road. Rainey has nine Fantasy points combined away from home.
We like Rainey this week but don't love him. Because of that he should be considered a flex option and is worth starting if needed.

Mile Glennon not worth using in Week 16
Glennon has thrown two touchdowns in each of the past two games against Buffalo and San Francisco. In fact, he's thrown two touchdowns in four of his past five games.
But in his past three outings, Glennon has combined for just 31 Fantasy points, and this isn't the week to trust him with a potential Fantasy title on the line. The Rams have also allowed just two quarterbacks to score 20 Fantasy points against them since Week 3, which were Josh McCown in Week 12 and Drew Brees last week.
Glennon might have established himself as the quarterback of the future in Tampa Bay, but he's not a solid Fantasy option heading into this matchup with the Rams in Week 16
Zach Miller, Robert Turbin probable for Week 16
Four Seahawks defenders probable for Week 16
Sherman is joined by defensive backs
