Falcons Sign Ray-Ray McCloud To Two-Year Deal

The Atlanta Falcons signed free-agent veteran wide receiver and returner Ray-Ray McCloud to a two-year deal worth up to $6 million on Thursday, according to a source. The Falcons have added McCloud and Darnell Mooney through free agency this week and Rondale Moore via trade to give the team much better speed and receiving depth behind No. 1 wideout Drake London. McCloud, 27, is known more for his returning skills on special teams and has just 90 receptions (134 targets) for 767 receiving yards and one touchdown in his six years in the NFL with the Niners, Bills, Panthers and Steelers. Buffalo's former sixth-round pick in 2018 out of Clemson will compete for a depth role at the receiver position in Atlanta this summer while also being a candidate to return kicks. He's off the fantasy radar.

Ray-Ray McCloud III, Jauan Jennings Listed As Questionable

San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Ray-Ray McCloud III (rib), Jauan Jennings (concussion) and Danny Gray (shoulder) are all questionable to play in the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Both the 49ers and Rams will be rested a lot of their regulars in this meaningless contest, so all three of McCloud, Jennings and Gray could see substantial offensive snaps on Sunday if they are active. The Niners will have to activate McCloud from Injured Reserve if they want him playing this weekend. The 27-year-old hasn't been active since Week 12. McCloud mostly works on special teams. Jennings has missed the last two games and has served as the No. 3 behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk for most of the year. Jennings would have the most appeal as a bargain-bin deep DFS sleeper this weekend if he's active, but fantasy managers would probably be wise to avoid San Fran's offense altogether this week.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Returns To Practice

The San Francisco 49ers opened the 21-day practice window for wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (ribs) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday and he was a full participant in practice. McCloud initially landed on Injured Reserve on Dec. 9. The 49ers now have 21 days to decide whether to officially activate the 27-year-old pass-catcher from IR. They won't be in any rush, as they'll have a first-round bye in the wild-card round of the playoffs next week before returning to action in the Divisional Round. San Fran also plays the Los Angeles Rams in a meaningless Week 18 game this Sunday, so it's possible McCloud could return for that. Even if he plays this weekend, McCloud won't be an option in fantasy lineups, as he's caught only nine passes for 113 yards and no touchdowns in 11 games this year.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Heads To Injured Reserve

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (ribs) has been placed on the injured reserve on Saturday. This comes after McCloud was already declared out for the upcoming Week 14 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The 27-year-old hasn't made much of an impact this season. He has nine receptions for 113 yards and zero touchdowns this season. In his absence, wideout Chris Conley will replace him on the active roster. The 49ers are fairly healthy right now, so Conley won't be worth a look as a streaming option this weekend.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Out Against Seattle

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (ribs) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. The 27-year-old didn't play in the Week 13 win over the Eagles. While he managed to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday, he sat out on Thursday and Friday. Nonetheless, McCloud has only nine catches for 113 yards (no touchdowns) throughout the 2023-24 campaign. With Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel available in Week 14, McCloud wouldn't have been a viable fantasy option anyway.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Limited In Wednesday’s Practice

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday's team practice. McCloud missed last week's game due to a rib issue, but his return to the practice field on Wednesday is a big sign for his availability on Sunday. He'll have two more chances to upgrade his practice status before the 49ers take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14. If McCloud does return this weekend, he doesn't carry much fantasy value as the team's WR4. The 27-year-old has just nine catches for 113 yards this season.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Won't Suit Up In Week 13

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (rib) is officially inactive for Week 13 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. He had been listed as questionable. The 27-year-old has contributed a flurry of big plays on offense this season, but most of his contributions have been on special teams, where his absence will be felt. Ronnie Bell will likely return punts and kicks in his absence.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Gets Through Limited Session

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (rib) is considered questionable heading into the Week 13 matchup against the Detroit Lions. McCloud missed the first two days of practice, but was able to get through a limited session on Friday. His status doesn't mean too much for the 49ers offense. He has barely played on offense and mainly serves as the punt and kick returner. Fantasy managers can continue to ignore McCloud going forward.

Ray-Ray McCloud Misses Practice With Illness

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud (illness) was a non-participant in practice on Wednesday. The severity of his illness is unknown but it's unlikely to be bad enough to keep him out of the lineup this week. The 27-year-old has seen a slight uptick in involvement on offense with Deebo Samuel (shoulder) out of the lineup. Samuel is practicing in full and will make his return to the lineup on Sunday. That will relegate McCloud back to his role as a returner on special teams. Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and Jauan Jennings are above him in the wide receiver pecking order.

Ray-Ray McCloud III Logs In Limited Practice

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud III (wrist) was able to get through a limited practice session on Thursday. McCloud continues to work his way back from a broken wrist that he suffered in early August. The good news is that McCloud has been able to practice in a limited capacity on two consecutive days. It remains to be seen if McCloud will be ready in time for Sunday's regular season opener. Honestly, Friday's practice will go a long way to determining his availability for this weekend. McCloud doesn't offer much upside in the receiving game, but was a solid punt and kick returner last season.
