2015 DRAFT GUIDE

San Francisco 49ers
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The 49ers were a disappointment last year and parted ways with coach Jim Harbaugh. The team still has a lot of talent, though, and should challenge for a playoff spot. The division is very good, which is a concern for the 49ers. San Francisco has a very good defense but the offense remains the concern. If the offense can play more consistently, most notably Kaepernick, the 49ers can return to the playoffs and challenge for the division crown. But if the offense has more issues, expect San Francisco to miss out on the playoffs.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Frank Gore is gone, making second-year back Carlos Hyde the starter for the 49ers. He didnā??t get a ton of chances as a rookie but made some plays with his work. A much bigger workload should lead to good things for Hyde. He is a three-down back that will get better as he gets more touches. Hyde can be a fantasy star in this league, getting plenty of touches in an offense that should feed the running back plenty.
FANTASY DUD
You keep waiting for quarterback Colin Kaepernick to have that breakout. Well, it hasnā??t happened to this point, so donā??t expect a sudden turnaround. Heā??ll show flashes of good things and have some big games but struggle in others. He is what he is, a fantasy backup worthy of some spot starts. Donā??t expect him to suddenly become a superstar and elite fantasy quarterback. He brings good things to the table but a lack of accuracy and poor decision making keep holding him back.

Aug 21, 05:22 PM San Francisco 49ers RB Jarryd Hayne rushed for 63 yards in the first preseason game and showed confidence and a solid athletic ability during his runs. Hayne also recorded 57 yards on punt returns during the game, which could help his chance to make the roster.

Aug 19, 09:53 PM Free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (49ers) could be a player of interest for the Carolina Panthers. He made three starts in 14 games for the San Francisco 49ers in 2014. He led the lead with 1,448 receiving yards as recently as 2010, but he it is his only 1,000-yard season.

Aug 13, 06:52 PM San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush is listed as the top kick and punt returner in San Francisco's first released depth chart. Head coach Jim Tomsula Bush has the skill to succeed in the return game and that he wants to do it.
Aug 13, 05:42 PM San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert has received plenty of praise from head coach Jim Tomsula. 'I'm a believer in Blaine Gabbert. I am, just point blank,' Tomsula said. 'We're building a team, in terms of the on-the-field play and the team - Blaine Gabbert, that's a beautiful piece.'
