Although the 49ers' defense welcomed Tramaine Brock (toe) back from injury Sunday, San Francisco still finished their 42-17 loss to the Broncos without three valued defensive backs, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Brock had been sidelined with a toe injury since Week 1, but his return to the 49ers' starting lineup unfortunately coincided with fellow cornerback Chris Culliver (hamstring) being ruled out. Along with Culliver, rookie first-rounder Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) was named to San Francisco's inactive list leading up to Sunday night's contest in Denver. Facing the NFL's all-time leader in passing touchdowns, the 49ers' defense also endured a hamstring injury to cornerback Chris Cook on Sunday, leaving little resistance to fend against Peyton Manning and the Broncos.by Rotowire.com
Coach Doug Marrone confirmed Monday that Spiller underwent surgery to repair his clavicle.
Analysis: Per ESPN's Mike Rodak, the Bills haven't decided yet whether or not Spiller will be placed on IR, but the running back is obviously out indefinitely. With Fred Jackson (groin) also in line to miss time, the team's Week 8 backfield will be headed by a combo of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon, with the Bills also considering adding another back to their practice squad.by Rotowire.com
Levy had 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's win over the Saints.
Analysis: Two of Levy's stops came behind the line. He continues to be a tackling machine this year with double-digit stops a likely occurrence in every game going forward.by Rotowire.com
Quinn finally got his first sack of the season Sunday to go with four tackles and a tackle for loss in a 28-26 win over Seattle.
Analysis: Quinn has been the primary focus of opposing linemen and has been bottled up for the most part this season. Owners have likely given up on him now, but at least for the Rams' sake, they have to hope this is the start of a bounce back.by Rotowire.com
Crabtree only gained 27 yards on three catches (seven targets) in Sunday's blowout loss to the Broncos.
Analysis: It was a pretty disappointing performance from Crabtree, considering the 49ers were playing from behind and throwing the ball for the majority of the game. He's averaging 4.6 receptions and just 46 yards per game, which is decent for PPR leagues, but pretty underwhelming for those in standard formats. Crabtree and Anquan Boldin continue to split the majority of the targets in this offense, but neither has stepped up and become a consistent fantasy option.by Rotowire.com
