2018 Fantasy Football Projections: San Francisco 49ers

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the San Francisco 49ers.



Jimmy Garoppolo582.8378.2442925.115.238.353.61.11.5256.12
Starting Weeks 12 to 17, Garoppolo scored the 12th-most fantasy points (17th-most on a per-game basis, 14.5) during that stretch. His mediocre fantasy production was limited by the lack of touchdowns -- seven passing touchdowns in six games -- although he was efficient in terms of completion percentage (67.4) and yards per attempt (8.8). With a full offseason in Kyle Shanahan's offense and better/healthier weapons, there is plenty of upside in 2018.

Running Backs


Jerick McKinnon230977.56.756.1398.32.42.8186.58
Signed to a $30 million contract, McKinnon gets an opportunity to be a lead back for the first time in his career. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee recently wrote: "The over/under on his catches for the season might be 73, the highest number that Devonta Freeman caught when Shanahan was coaching him with the Falcons." Running backs in Kyle Shanahan's offense typically flourish and McKinnon has a ton of upside this year.
Matt Breida101.4446.22.618.5149.90.90.579.61
Kyle Juszczyk6.427.50.630.3278.81.50.941.43
Joe Williams44.71900.95.742.20.10.528.22
Raheem Mostert1.78.5000000.85

Wide Receivers


Pierre Garcon74.9936.34.50000.1120.43
Garcon (neck) missed half the season and was on pace for an 80/1,000 season before the injury. His last full season (2013) playing in Kyle Shanahan's offense, he posted a career-best 113/1,346/5 stat line. Unlikely to repeat those numbers, a 1,000-yard season is certainly within reach.
Marquise Goodwin47.97762.43.832.
Goodwin had the best season of his career with 56 catches for 962 yards and two touchdowns. Especially productive in the second half, Goodwin had a five-game stretch of 78-plus yards from Weeks 10 to 15 including three straight with 99-plus. With Garcon healthy, Goodwin would do well to repeat last year's numbers.
Trent Taylor40.6410.11.60000.350.01
Taylor had 43 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, but the 49ers drafted Pettis in the second round and Garcon missed half the year.
Dante Pettis26.6297.91.30000.237.19
The 49ers traded up to 44th overall for Pettis and they seem to be "putting more on Pettis' plate than they typically would for a rookie."
Aldrick Robinson10.5180.61.10000.124.46
Kendrick Bourne8.9131.70.50000.115.97

Tight Ends


George Kittle50.3603.63.50000.181.16
Ending the season with a bang, Kittle had four catches for 100 yards in Week 17 against the Rams and he finished his rookie campaign with 43/515/2. Among rookie tight ends, only New York's Evan Engram had more receptions or yards.
Garrett Celek16.1206.11.90000.131.81
Cole Hikutini2.723.80.100002.98
