2019 Fantasy Football Projections: San Francisco 49ers

- Updated: Thursday, July 25th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the San Francisco 49ers.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Jimmy Garoppolo512.53284202.524.3414.0936.869.90.37246.49
Garoppolo has been solid -- 8.5 Y/A, 4.5 TD% and 3.0 INT% -- but not spectacular in his nine games played for the 49ers. There is some upside in a Kyle Shanahan offense, but Jimmy G. currently has an ADP ahead of some quarterbacks that I'd prefer over him (Mitch Trubisky, Dak Prescott, Kirk Cousins, etc.).

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Tevin Coleman159.7702.75.1925.3232.82.4139.09
Reunited with his former coach, Coleman is to be the lead back in the team's committee backfield. With Devonta Freeman sidelined nearly all of 2018, Coleman set career highs in both workload (199 touches) and scrimmage yards (1,076) and scored nine touchdowns last season. Based on my current projections, Coleman could fall short in both of those numbers this season -- 185 touches for 935 scrimmage yards.
Jerick McKinnon116.14762.3223.9176.91.0485.45
Coming off a lost season and torn ACL, McKinnon is not expected to begin training camp on the PUP list. Before the ACL tear, McKinnon notched a tad more than 200 touches per season in 2016 and 2017. With Coleman likely to lead the backfield in touches, McKinnon is unlikely to exceed 200 touches this season and it's possible that the team brings him along more slowly given his return from a serious injury.
Matt Breida107.2482.42.1415.9141.50.9580.93
Breida dealt with a nagging ankle injury, but he led the team in rushing (814 yards on 153 carries). Recording the NFL's fastest speed on a run (22.09 MPH, per NFL's NextGen stats) last season, Breida was one of six running backs to have double-digit runs of 20-plus yards. The skill set of Breida, Coleman and McKinnon gives Shanahan an interchangeable group of backs, but that also means one of them could wind up as a healthy game-day scratch, as NBC's Matt Maiocco notes.
Kyle Juszczyk2.290.0225.2254.51.0732.89

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Dante Pettis55.7813.25.291.150.01113.62
Productive after the team's Week 11 bye, Pettis had a four-game stretch through Week 15 with at least 80 yards and/or a touchdown each week. During that four-game span, Pettis had 17 catches for 338 yards and four touchdowns with the third-most fantasy points amongst receivers (eighth-most in PPR). Impressing the coaches and his teammates this offseason, Pettis looks ready to build upon his late-season rookie momentum in 2019.
Marquise Goodwin31.3538.42.933.321.80.0373.78
With the emergence of Pettis and the high draft pick used on Samuel, Goodwin could see his volume scaled back even though he's a dangerous deep threat. If utilized more as a situational deep threat, it will be difficult to anticipate which weeks to start him.
Deebo Samuel42.54932.986.743.60.1772.56
Expected to start opposite Pettis, the 36th-overall pick is built more like a running back (5-11, 214) and his biggest asset is his run-after-catch ability.
Jalen Hurd15.6196.61.175.630.20.0630.06
Trent Taylor10.7101.70.400012.57
Richie James1.723.50.140003.19
Kendrick Bourne0.89.90.060001.35

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
George Kittle81.211535.08000145.78
Breaking out in his second season, Kittle broke the single-season record for receiving yards (1,377) by tight ends on his 88 receptions. Even better in the second half of the season, Kittle had a stat line of 51/793/3 (15.5 Y/R) over his final eight games. Along with Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz, Kittle is a slam-dunk top-three option at the position.
Garrett Celek4.155.80.330007.56
Kaden Smith3.132.20.160004.18
