|San Francisco 49ers |
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.
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.
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.

||San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said he does not covet an extension, he just wants to coach football. 'I see all these reports about how I want to be the highest-paid coach in football,' Harbaugh said. 'They presume I covet some kind of extension. I have never said to anybody that I want to be the highest-paid coach in football. I have never said that to anybody -- my wife, my brother, my dad. I make plenty of money.'|

If anybody has any concerns or wants to voice their opinions, they're more than welcome to.'|
