2013 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
San Francisco 49ers
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

This team would look even better if Crabtree didn't get hurt but it happened, so they'll have to adjust. Even with Crabtree likely out all year, the 49ers have a top team. Their defense is arguably the best in the game and the offense is starting to play near the level of the defense. The 49ers are a complete team capable of another appearance in the Super Bowl. They are a very impressive team.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Colin Kaepernick, QB. He might be missing his top receiver this season but Kaepernick is poised for a big season as the full-time starter from day one. He is a dual threat capable of the huge fantasy game any given week. He will be able to carry fantasy teams. The 49ers have an emerging offense with plenty of playmakers offensively - even without Michael Crabtree. Kaepernick has a rocket for an arm, above-average accuracy and top running ability for a quarterback. He is the complete package at quarterback.

FANTASY DUD

Frank Gore, RB. Gore had another big season last year but you have to wonder how much he has left. He is 30 years old and has a lot of carries under his belt. And the 49ers like LaMichael James a lot, so look for him to get more work and be groomed as the starter. It wouldn't surprise to see Gore get a lot fewer touches this season. Remember, he only had 259 carries last year, which isn't a huge number. Even fewer carries could be a big hit to his value.

Team Notes

Apr 23, 12:23 PM San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was present for the start of offseason workouts Monday, April 21, even though he was arrested in Los Angeles last week.
Apr 21, 05:12 PM San Francisco 49ers exclusive rights free-agent LB Michael Wilhoite has signed his one-year tender offer. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Apr 21, 03:42 PM Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James does not plan on participating in any of the offseason workouts and will work out on his own in Texas. The 49ers are reportedly looking to trade James.
Apr 21, 02:12 PM The San Francisco 49ers plan to place LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) on the Physically Unable to Perform list when training camp begins, because he is not expected to be cleared to play before the start of the regular season. Bowman will be working with the trainers during offseason workouts.
Apr 21, 02:02 PM San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James is training in Texas by himself and did not report for the start of offseason workouts Monday, April 21.
Apr 20, 09:12 PM San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) is not expected to be restricted in any way when offseason workouts begin.

Fantasy Impact: Lattimore has a real shot to play a big role in the offense this season.
Apr 19, 12:22 PM The Kansas City Chiefs could consider pursuing San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James if he could become a slot receiver. The team likely would not have interest in James if he can only be a running back since they have RBs Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis on the roster.
Apr 19, 10:42 AM San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was not believed to be at the scene of a suspicious incident when Miami police arrived earlier this month.
Apr 18, 12:02 PM The San Francisco 49ers are not expected to pick up the 2015 fifth-year option on the contract of LB Aldon Smith, according to a league source. The team has until May 3 to make their decision.
Apr 17, 11:52 PM The San Francisco 49ers have stopped contract extension talks with QB Colin Kaepernick for now while the Miami police investigate an incident involving Kaepernick earlier this month.
Apr 17, 09:32 PM The San Francisco 49ers do not plan on releasing LB Aldon Smith this offseason. Smith is expected to be suspended at the beginning of the season, but the length of the suspension is not known at this point.
Apr 17, 10:04 AM According to a league source, the San Francisco 49ers have been shopping RB LaMichael James. He finds himself behind RBs Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and perhaps Marcus Lattimore on the depth chart at running back this season.

Fantasy Impact: It would be best for James to get moved. He has little value with the 49ers right now.
Apr 16, 03:33 PM San Francisco 49ers LB Dan Skuta (foot) is not expected to need surgery on the foot injury that bothered him during the 2013 season. Skuta met with a foot specialist earlier this offseason and was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis.
Apr 16, 03:23 PM Updating a previous report, the San Francisco 49ers signed WR Brandon Lloyd to a one-year deal worth $1.005 million. The deal does not include any guaranteed money.
Apr 16, 12:03 AM San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith hasn't only lost the benefit of the doubt with the team, but he probably won't play with the team in 2014, according to several sources involved with the team's decision making. However, the NFL is almost certain to punish him for his latest arrest, and the team will probably wait through the legal and NFL processes before making any final conclusion.
Apr 15, 03:23 PM San Francisco 49ers OG Daniel Kilgore was found not guilty of public intoxication related to his arrest in January in Tennessee. His case was dismissed following his appearance in court Friday, April 11. Kilgore is expected to be the team's starting center in 2014.
