Signs one-year extension

Hasty signed a one-year contract extension with the 49ers on Thursday.

Analysis: Hasty appeared in 11 games for the 49ers last year and rushed 16 times for 68 yards and a touchdown while securing 23 of 29 targets for 157 yards. He'll compete for touches as a reserve once again heading into the 2022 campaign.

Gains 25 yards in Week 18

Hasty had one carry for four yards and caught two of three targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Rams.

Analysis: Hasty served his usual third-down role with Elijah Mitchell (21-85-0) running at full strength. The 24-year-old stuck in his return/utility role on offense for the entirety of the 2021 campaign, finishing with 225 yards and a touchdown on 39 combined offensive touches across 11 active games. He will continue to spell Mitchell in the playoffs, but he won't be fantasy-relevant unless something catastrophic happens to the 49ers' backfield. Hasty should stick in San Francisco in 2022 given his familiarity with the offense and the low cost to keep him as an exclusive-rights free agent.

Limited to seven snaps

Hasty caught his lone target for six yards and did not receive a carry in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Elijah Mitchell (knee) returned from a three-game absence and reclaimed the primary tailback role in San Francisco. Hasty was the only other true running back to record a touch, despite playing five less offensive snaps than fellow backup Jeff Wilson. Assuming Mitchell is a full go for Week 18, Hasty will be limited to a small receiving back role against the Rams next Sunday.

Nabs three receptions in loss

Hasty had one carry for three yards while collecting all three targets for 26 yards in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Hasty redeemed himself in a third-down role Thursday after turning in his worst performance of the season last week. Elijah Mitchell (knee/concussion) remained sidelined for the second straight game, so Jeff Wilson and wideout Deebo Samuel combined to handle the rushing duties. Hasty may find himself phased out of the offense if Mitchell is able to return for the 49ers' next contest -- which won't take place until a week from Sunday -- as Wilson is superior rusher and can also handle receiving duties out of the backfield.

Coughs up ball Sunday

Hasty rushed once for 13 yards and caught his lone target for three yards while losing a fumble in Sunday's 31-13 win over Atlanta.

Analysis: Jeff Wilson (21-110-1) handled the bulk of the backfield rushing duties with Elijah Mitchell (knee/concussion) still sidelined, leaving Hasty in a reserve/special teams role. The 25-year-old struggled in his limited role, fumbling away the 49ers' first kickoff return. Mitchell's status for Week 16 is still in question with such a short turnaround before Thursday's matchup against the Titans, but head coach Kyle Shanahan is clearly comfortable rolling with a healthy Wilson and Deebo Samuel heading the rushing attack if Mitchell is unable to go.

Three receptions in win

Hasty caught all three of his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Bengals.

Analysis: Elijah Mitchell (concussion/knee) was held out of action, so Jeff Wilson (13-56-0) and Deebo Samuel (8-37-1) took over rushing duties while Hasty handled the receiving work out of the backfield as expected. Wilson's return from injured reserve back in Week 10 has pigeonholed Hasty into a primarily receiving backup role in games where Mitchell is sidelined. The 24-year-old shouldn't make much noise in fantasy circles heading into Week 15's matchup with the Falcons.

Dec 13, 2021 1:36 PM EST

Set for bigger role

Hasty and Jeff Wilson will serve as the 49ers' main running backs Sunday in Cincinnati, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Like Wilson, Hasty has dealt with his own injury concerns this season, playing in just six of 12 possible contests. Overall, he's averaged 3.7 yards on his 13 carries, hauled in 13 of 18 targets for 91 yards and scored a rushing TD. As for Wilson, he has 31 rushes and two receptions in four appearances. Considering the respective touch counts, Hasty may be used more on passing downs while Wilson handles early down and short-yardage work this weekend.

Only back to escape Sunday healthy

Hasty (ankle) logged just one offensive snap and did not receive a touch in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: Hasty returned from a three-game absence due to an ankle injury. The 25-year-old exited the contest as the lone healthy back after Elijah Mitchell (concussion), Jeff Wilson (knee) and Trent Cannon (concussion) all suffered injuries. Mitchell will enter the league's concussion protocol while Wilson's situation will receive more clarity during practice this week. Hasty will see a bump in usage should either of the aforementioned backs miss Sunday's tilt against the Bengals. If both Mitchell and Wilson miss the contest, Hasty would become the 49ers' top back and gain a huge boost in Week 14 value, making him a decent speculative waiver add.

Dec 6, 2021 5:30 PM EST

Returning this Sunday

Hasty (ankle) is cleared to return for Sunday's game in Seattle, with no designation on the final injury report, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hasty has now missed six games with ankle injuries (Weeks 3-6, 10-12) and worked as San Francisco's passing-down specialist in the five others. The role has mostly gone to Kyle Jusczyk when Hasty's been out, though Jeff Wilson is also capable. In any case, Hasty is averaging only 2.6 carries and 2.6 catches for 27.8 yards per game, with his usage dwarfed by that of early down back Elijah Mitchell (17.9 carries, 1.8 catches per game).

Dec 3, 2021 1:58 PM EST

Another limited practice

Hasty (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.

Analysis: With back-to-back capped sessions behind him, Hasty may be setting himself up for his first game action since Week 9. If he indeed makes it all the way back -- either by getting rid of his designation Friday and being deemed active Sunday at Seattle -- he'd still take a back seat to Elijah Mitchell this weekend. Hasty's primary competition for reps would be Jeff Wilson with Trey Sermon (ankle) slated to miss time.

Dec 2, 2021 4:47 PM EST

Limited Wednesday

Hasty (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Hasty already has logged a pair of three-game absences this season, but he may be setting himself up for a return following Wednesday's activity. The 49ers could use the depth RB option in a backfield with Raheem Mostert (knee) out for the season and Trey Sermon potentially going on IR due to a sprained ankle. Having said that, Elijah Mitchell is the 49ers' clear lead runner, and Jeff Wilson also is around for complementary work whenever Hasty achieves active status again.

Dec 1, 2021 3:39 PM EST

No go for Week 12

Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: With no activity on the practice field yet since coming out of Week 9 action with an ankle injury, Hasty will miss a third contest in a row. Even when healthy and available, though, he averaged just 5.2 touches for 27.8 yards from scrimmage while scoring one rushing TD in his five appearances. In the meantime, Elijah Mitchell (rib/finger) is listed a questionable for Week 12. Assuming he's active, he should resume his role as the 49ers' top running back, with Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon on hand for any snaps the Mitchell doesn't receive.

Nov 26, 2021 1:49 PM EST

No activity Thursday

Hasty (ankle) was a non-participant on Thursday's injury report, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty already has missed two games as a result of an ankle injury and appears poised for a third consecutive absence due to his inability to practice since the start of Week 10 prep. Meanwhile, Elijah Mitchell (rib/finger) put in limited work for a second straight session Thursday. It's unclear if Mitchell is trending toward a return to action Sunday against the Vikings, but the 49ers currently have Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon and Trenton Cannon as healthy RB options on the active roster.

Nov 25, 2021 2:50 PM EST

Doesn't practice Wednesday

Hasty (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Analysis: Hasty hasn't practiced since showing up as a DNP on the 49ers' first Week 10 injury report with an ankle issue. Meanwhile, Elijah Mitchell returned in a limited fashion Wednesday after being held out all of last week and from Sunday's game at Jacksonville after surgery on his finger. If Mitchell puts himself in a position to play Week 12 against the Vikings, he should resume his role as San Francisco's No. 1 running back. As for Hasty, he'll have two more sessions to do the same this week, but Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon are healthy in the event Hasty misses a third consecutive contest.

Nov 24, 2021 4:13 PM EST

Not playing Sunday

Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty's absence will create a void in the 49ers' backfield on passing downs, but his status is a secondary concern to that of lead runner Elijah Mitchell (finger), who is listed as doubtful for the contest. In the likely event Mitchell joins Hasty on the 49ers' Week 11 inactive list, the team would be left with Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon and Trenton Cannon as their available backs, assuming no other additions at the position prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Given that neither Sermon nor Cannon has played a snap on offense since Week 5, Wilson could be entrusted with a three-down workhorse role against Jacksonville.

Nov 19, 2021 1:12 PM EST

No practice Thursday

Hasty (ankle) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty has been dealing with ankle injuries for much of the season, missing four games to date (including Monday's win against the Rams). He's been joined on the sidelines this week by Elijah Mitchell, who is recovering from a procedure on a broken finger. Mitchell seems to be trending toward playing Sunday at Jacksonville, so if Hasty is unable to suit up Jeff Wilson will be the main complementary option out of the 49ers backfield.

Nov 18, 2021 4:21 PM EST

Misses practice

Hasty (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty has largely seen playing time in obvious passing situations, of which there were few in Monday's 31-10 win over the Rams. His absence didn't have much impact on the game, but it did free up some extra snaps for Jeff Wilson, who could now take on a larger role if Hasty is out again and Elijah Mitchell has any limitations after undergoing finger surgery Tuesday.

Nov 17, 2021 1:45 PM EST

Ruled out Monday

Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hasty was unable to practice all week, and he'll be forced to miss Monday's primetime matchup as a result. He logged just seven carries for seven yards while hauling in eight of 12 targets for 55 yards across the last three games, but Jeff Wilson and Trenton Cannon could see additional work against the Rams.

Nov 13, 2021 3:24 PM EST

Absent from practice

Hasty (ankle) didn't practice Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Analysis: With Hasty missing back-to-back practices, Jeff Wilson may fill in as the passing-down back Monday night against the Rams. Hasty is averaging 2.6 carries and 2.6 catches for 27.8 total yards per game, with 29-to-36 percent snap share in each of his five appearances this season.

Nov 12, 2021 3:41 PM EST

Tending to ankle issue

Hasty didn't practice Thursday due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: In his five appearances this season, Hasty hasn't been more than a change-of-pace option out of the 49ers backfield, averaging 3.7 yards on his 13 carries, gathering in 13 of 18 targets for 91 yards and scoring one TD on the ground. Now with a health concern in tow, he could be in danger of losing the backup gig behind Elijah Mitchell to Jeff Wilson, who was activated from the PUP list Saturday. Wilson was active but didn't see any action this past Sunday against the Cardinals, which could change if Hasty's injury lingers. In any case, Hasty will have two more sessions to put himself into a position to be available Monday versus the Rams.
