2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
San Francisco 49ers
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

San Francisco has one of the best teams in all of football. Their defense is top five and the offense is getting better and better. They are the complete package. The defense can win games all by themselves. And the offense this season could be good enough to win some games if the defense has some stumbles. For us, the 49ers are the favorite to win the NFC and make another appearance in the Super Bowl.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick didn't quite live up to the hype last season but did some good things along the way. He is setup for much better things this season. He can take his game to a new level, getting some weapons back healthy and some more options in the passing game to help elevate his game. Kaepernick has the skillset and surrounding talent to be a top fantasy quarterback. Plus, he should get plenty of chances offensively because the 49ers' defense will shut down plenty of opponents.
FANTASY DUD
Running back Frank Gore is another aging back that probably has played his best years. He remains the starter but has plenty of young talent pushing him for playing time. He still has touchdown and some yardage potential but his touches should be down compared to past years. It wouldn't even be a shock if Gore lost his starting job before the end of the season. There are a lot of top, young backs on this roster that are the future at the position for the 49ers.

Apr 06, 10:12 PM San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick continues to work with former NFL MVP Kurt Warner this offseason, and Warner's goal is trying to get Kaepernick to wait longer in the pocket as a passer before using his athleticism as a crutch. Warner said in a satellite radio interview Monday, April 6, that Kaepernick has relied on his running ability so long that it's a difficult transition to become the type of pocket passer necessary for success in the NFL.
Apr 01, 03:53 PM San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) will return in 2015 after missing all of the 2014 season with a knee injury.

Apr 01, 02:03 PM San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been working with former NFL QB Kurt Warner this offseason to become a better all-around quarterback. 'For (Kaepernick), it's finding that balance between 'When do I be a quarterback?' and 'When do I be an athlete?' And trying to find that mix between the two,' Warner said. '... So the real question is going to be, when the bullets are flying and guys are chasing after him does he revert back to being an athlete or have we made some progress in making him more of a quarterback and staying in a quarterback-friendly position to be able to make more consistent, accurate throws down the field.'
