Fantasy Studs on the San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are going to be in a bit of a transition year this upcoming year. There might have been some knocking of heads between CEO Jed York and head coach Jim Harbaugh, but Harbaugh made the team relevant for the first time in a decade and transformed basically the same roster of players into an NFC league title every single year (minus one). When a head coach does that, it is better to just let him do what he needs to do. So, bad news for San Fran, good news for Michigan, Harbaugh’s new coaching spot. So, due to this, it is necessary to look at the potential studs on the 49ers and if they are worth picking up.

Colin KaepernickThis is going to be a very interesting year for Kaepernick. Harbaugh is known to work magic with QBs wherever he goes. From Andrew Luck to Rich Gannon when he was the QB coach of the Raiders to Colin Kaepernick, essentially everyone Harbaugh has touched has turned to gold. It is now Colin’s time to stand out on his own. He’s not going to have the head coach/QB expert there on the sideline. Now, Kaepernick needs to rely on his feet, which is always good for extra yards, but waiting to see what he does this year should prove interesting.

Vernon Davis

Now, it should be interesting to see how Vernon Davis fairs with this coaching transition. If there is one thing Harbaugh likes, it’s his big tight ends. Now, last year he did struggle a bit, but he’s looking to have a bounce back year. It will prove more interesting to see if the team goes to the TE as often as they have in the past. Back in 2013, Davis alone scored 30 points against the Cardinals. That’s more than many TEs score in a full season.

Michael Crabtree

He is going to be the focus of the offense. Crabtree returned in 2014 from an injured achilles tear. While he was fully healthy, often times the big improvements are not seen until the second year back, which is now. This makes for a good chance that Crabtree should have nice results. Now, he should not be a first round pick in any draft, or even a third or fourth round pick (unless the league is rather large). He was listed towards the bottom half of feature WRs in the league at 20th in production. With that being said though, his production should increase, so if he’s available round four or beyond, it might be worth a decide pickup, if there aren’t better WRs available.

Reggie Bush

Reggie Bush is not going to be the every down back for the 49ers. So why in the world is he appearing on this list ahead of Carlos Hyde. It is because of the value he adds and how far back in a draft he can be picked up. He’s a solid 3rd down back and great out in the flat. He’ll get some yards and points and can be picked up cheap.
