2019 Fantasy Football Projections: San Francisco 49ers

- Updated: Tuesday, June 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 Garoppolo508.9325.7417324.1713.9936.769.70.37244.81
Garoppolo (ACL) should be ready for the start of training camp and he 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 Coleman159699.64.7726.4242.91.85133.97
Reunited with his former coach, Coleman is the "clear favorite" (via NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco) for the most touches among the team's running backs. 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. Perhaps he outperforms my expectations, I have Coleman projected for close to (but less than) last year's workload and production.
Jerick McKinnon115.7485.92.3122.9175.20.884.77
Coming off a lost season and torn ACL, McKinnon is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Before the injury, McKinnon notched a tad more than 200 touches per season in 2016 and 2017, but he'll battle it out with Matt Breida for the second-most touches in San Francisco's backfield.
Matt Breida106.8480.62.1416.1141.70.6478.91
Breida dealt with some injuries himself but led the team in rushing (814 yards on 153 carries) and had three 100-yard games. The skill set of Breida, Coleman and McKinnon gives Shanahan an interchangeable group of backs, but there's a good chance that one of them ends up a healthy game-day scratch, as Maiocco notes.
Kyle Juszczyk2.290.0226.32840.9234.94
Raheem Mostert5.625.20.1416.50.014.07

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Dante Pettis52.3742.74.971.150.01104.65
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 Goodwin32.3550.72.423.321.80.0371.95
With the emergence of Pettis and high draft pick used on Samuel, Goodwin could see his volume scaled back some even though he's a dangerous deep threat.
Deebo Samuel42.1477.82.326.743.60.1767.08
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 Hurd14.3177.31.075.630.20.0627.53
Trent Taylor10.698.60.400012.26
Richie James1.723.50.140003.19
Kendrick Bourne0.89.90.060001.35

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
George Kittle80.11137.44.41000140.2
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.
Garrett Celek4.155.80.330007.56
Kaden Smith3.132.20.160004.18
