Team Needs

1. Cornerback
2. Offensive Line
3. Defensive Line

The number one reason why this team’s system works is what their depth on defense brings to the table from a broad perspective. There is room at outside corner and behind Ward at nickel, and that is even if they re-sign the multiple free agents there.

Depth Chart Fantasy Impact

QB Jimmy Garoppolo is not expected to be on this roster by the time Week 1 rolls around. The 49ers are ready to turn the offense over to QB Trey Lance, the 3rd overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Lance made 2 starts in place of Garoppolo last season, totaling 441 yards and 2 TDs passing and 120 yards rushing.

RB Elijah Mitchell returns as San Francisco’s starter after tallying 963 yards on 4.7 yards per carry across 11 games last year. He dealt with a multitude of injuries, though, and might be pushed by 3rd-round rookie RB Tyrion Davis-Price. The LSU product goes 6’1, 219 pounds and broke out with a 211-1,003-6 rushing line last season.

Despite offseason trade rumors, WR Deebo Samuel is expected back with the 49ers for 2022. He was incredible last season, racking up 1,405 receiving yards, 365 rushing yards and 14 total TDs.

WR Brandon Aiyuk and TE George Kittle also return. 3rd-round rookie WR Danny Gray brings speed to the offense, clocking a 4.33-second 40 time at the Combine.

There are questions on this interior offensive line after C Alex Mack retired and LG Laken Tomlinson signed with the Jets in free agency. They’re expected to be replaced by C Jake Brendel and LG Aaron Banks.
