San Francisco 49ers DFS Spin
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Christine McCaffrey (Italics) “will play” in Week 7, barring defeat. After logging a limited practice on Friday, McCaffrey officially entered the weekend with a questionable tag. The 49ers are expected to do everything, help it, and have to be on the field to prevent any breakdowns in pregame warmups. Fantasy managers who hold out for a useful week from Jordan Mason or Elijah Mitchell play them at their own peril. We’ll have more updates on McCaffrey later in the day, but it looks like it’ll be a stretch for him against the Vikings.
Minnesota Vikings DFS Spin
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Vikings ‘getting calls’ about EDGE Daniel Hunter. Hunter has been the subject of trade rumors for years, but the Vikings have always worked things out with their star passers. That includes giving him a one-year, $20 million contract that has a no-tag clause this season. Hunter leads the NFL with eight sacks, but his team sits at 2-4. With Minnesota’s season turning around, it would be smart for them to get something for Hunter instead of holding onto him for a lost season.

49ers vs. Vikings Prediction:
take over This total is very low. Since the start of last season, 49ers QB Brock Purdy ranks fourth in QBR, seventh in first down rate and eighth in touchdown percentage when facing 5+ pass rushers. I bring this up because the Vikings have the highest rate in the NFL at 57% of their opponents. Even without Debo Samuel, who is expected to miss time with a shoulder injury, Purdy should light up Minnesota’s defense.
On the other hand, the 49ers have one of the best defenses in the NFL, but Kirk Cousins’ 14 touchdown passes this season is tied with Tua Tagovailoa. The Vikings can’t run the ball, so they’ll continue to throw in hopes of outpacing their defense. It doesn’t work well from a win-loss standpoint, but for over-the-top purposes, it’s great for us tonight.
