2016

Even with Ladarius Green starting the season on the PUP-R list, Grimble is behind Jesse James and David Johsnon on the depth chart, Should he survive roster cuts, he doesn't offer much in terms of fantasy value.

2015

Currently last on the depth chart, Grimble will have an uphill battle during training camp to avoid being cut.

2014

Grimble joined the 49ers' practice squad in September 2014.
