The 49ers need some reinforcement at the cornerback position. Outside of Jason Verrett, there really isn't a cornerback they can rely upon. That isn't the most ideal situation considering Verrett isn't out of the woods yet when it comes to being an injury prone player.
The San Francisco 49ers are expected to work out former CFL and star junior wide receiver Jevon Cottoy. When comparing wide receivers amongst the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers are lacking a big physical threat and could use some reassurance on the tight end depth chart.
"Go root for another team." "Hater." "Fake fan." And my personal favorite, "You don't know football!" At some point if you are a fan with an unpopular opinion, you have heard these things or something very similar.
The 49ers inked veteran wideout Bennie Fowler almost as an emergency, and he doesn’t stand much of a chance to make the 53-man roster in 2021. Stranger things have happened, but San Francisco 49ers fans probably shouldn’t be lining up to order their jerseys for wide receiver Bennie Fowler.
The San Francisco 49ers made one of the biggest moves of the 2021 NFL offseason when they traded up for the No. 3 pick in the draft. That led to the selection of Trey Lance, who instantly became San Francisco's quarterback of the future...
With training camp drawing close, fantasy football will begin pushing its way back into its prominent place in the NFL discourse. Dynasty leagues, where managers keep players and draft rookies each year, will provide intriguing landing spots for 49ers rookies Trey Lance and Trey Sermon.
The outlook for 49ers EDGE Dee Ford to see the field at any point in 2021 is slim, so anything beyond a mere appearance would be a massive boost. The San Francisco 49ers are probably kicking themselves twice for their 2019 trade with the Kansas City Chiefs for EDGE Dee Ford.
49ers are in "Win now mode." Sound familiar? If this is true, then the 2021 team has to be better than the 2019 version. So let's compare. Below I will give a breakdown from coaching to position groups.
The 49ers know all too well why it’s important to have quality backups, and these five players enter 2021 as the team’s most crucial reserves. It’s not the most glorious job on the NFL gridiron, but it’s certainly a vital one being a key reserve or backup player.
The 49ers’ 2020 season was marred by injury and absences due to COVID-19. Turning the calendar to 2021 hasn’t provided much relief so far. Through just a handful of rookie minicamps and organized team activities, the club still finds itself with injury concerns and availability issues going into training camp.
George Kittle is more than just a tight end. The best way to describe his role on the 49ers is an offensive mauler. He obliterates his opponent as a run blocker and plays mind games with defenders as a receiver.
Fred Warner turned the nickname ‘All-Pro Fred’ into a reality last season when he earned his first First-Team All-Pro nod. His stellar third season wasn’t enough to earn him the top spot on the NFL Wire’s list of the 11 best linebackers in the league.
The 49ers are hoping safety/linebacker hybrid Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles can turn into a quality reserve piece after seeing modest action in 2020. Every now and then, NFL teams are graced with one of those undrafted free agents who seemingly emerge out of nowhere and become quality additions to a 53-man roster.
Kyle Shanahan’s outside zone is incredibly effective and a great play in itself, but the 49ers offense thrives off of counters to their run game. The passing concepts off of outside zone are pretty simple, but stopping them is another issue.
