Bellore (elbow) finished the year with 83 tackles, a sack, a pick and a forced fumble in 14 games prior to being placed on season-ending injured reserve.

EDGE Analysis

Bellore spent the majority of his six-year career as a special teams ace, but injuries created an opportunity for him to start. He ran with the opportunity, posting tackle totals that put him on the IDP map. The 27-year-old is set to hit free agency coming off of career-high marks, but his lack of coverage skills will likely land him back in a special team's role.

The 49ers placed Bellore (elbow) on injured reserve Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The move is merely for bookkeeping purposes, as head coach Chip Kelly ruled out Bellore for the rest of the season earlier Monday. Stepping into the void left behind by NaVorro Bowman due to a ruptured Achilles, Bellore easily posted a career-high 83 tackles in 14 games, while tacking on one sack, one interception, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. The 49ers claimed Carl Bradford off waivers from the Packers in order to shore up the ranks at inside linebacker.

Bellore (elbow) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, Mike Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the team has yet to place Bellore on IR, head coach Chip Kelley confirmed that Bellore would not play for the remainder of the year. His absence leaves San Francisco with just two inside linebackers, Gerald Hodges and Michael Wilhoite.

Bellore is out for the remainder of Sunday's game with an elbow injury, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Bellore out, the 49ers are very short at inside linebacker, especially with Gerald Hodges already sitting due to a breach of team rules.

Bellore had six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's overtime loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

It was a quiet day for Bellore in retrospect to his 11-tackle outburst last week. As the 49ers' top inside linebacker, he will always have potential for a high tackle total. He should continue to hold IDP value as the regular season draws to a close.

Bellore led the 49ers with 11 tackles (nine solo) in a 26-6 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Bellore led the team in tackles for the second-consecutive week. He has become the clear run-stopper amongst the 49ers linebackers. San Francisco is one of the worst teams in the NFL, which actually bodes well for Bellore's tackle totals down the stretch as opposing offenses should be running the ball deep into the fourth quarter. The Jets feature a run-heavy attack, so he should have plenty of opportunities to fill out the stat sheet yet again.

Bellore wrapped up a team-high eight tackles (four solo) and was awarded a half of a sack in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Bellore not only led the team in tackles, but he outsnapped the next middle linebacker by 23 snaps. The team is clearly giving him a long look in a lost season, creating a usable IDP option in the process. With 65 tackles in 11 games, Bellore is having a career year and should continue to rack up the tackles during the final weeks of the season.

Bellore recorded eight tackles (all solo) in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Even though Bellore started the 49ers last game, it wasn't clear if defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil would make another switch prior to Sunday's game the way he swapped Gerald Hodges and Michael Wilhoite in Week 8. He stayed true to his previous rotation and Bellore got the majority of snaps alongside Hodges against the Saints. While his coverage skills leave a lot to be desired, Bellore should continue to be a cheap source of tackles down the stretch.

Bellore recorded five tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 34-17 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Bellore took a step back after recording double-digit tackles in his first two starts with the 49ers. Still, 28 tackles in three games is nothing to scoff at in IDP formats. With the 49ers looking like a team that will be playing from behind a lot the rest of the season, Bellore should continue to see plenty of opportunities to put up tackle totals closer to his Week 5 and 6 marks.

Bellore got another start and racked up a team-high 12 tackles (nine solo) and also recovered a fumble in Sunday's 45-16 loss to Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

If there was any doubt that Bellore was one of the 49ers' starting linebackers, that can officially be put to rest after he was on the field for all 79 of the team's defensive snaps Sunday. He should continue to put up excellent tackle totals on a team that will likely be playing from behind all season. Bellore is definitely a must-add in IDP leagues if he wasn't swooped up already.
