2012 Preview: San Francisco 49ers

What an incredible 2011 season for the San Francisco 49ers!  Last year during the lockout, there was much speculation around who would emerge as the starter of the 49ers.  Alex Smith proved that he could start in this league.  Obviously he didn’t prove that enough since his team did flirt with Peyton Manning.  I have to bring it up because the 49er head coach just brought it up out of no where this week.  Over explaining why you had your eye on someone else does not restore confidence in a relationship Mr. Harbaugh-a little tip from me to you!  Aside from that bit of drama, the 49ers have impressed me this offseason!  They did take care of Alex Smith by giving him MANY weapons to use this season.  I mean how hard could it be to get Randy Moss the ball right?  Here is more from the 2012 San Francisco 49ers…

Fantasy Football Studs: The Niners defense is a top 10 fantasy football defense.  They were ranked 2nd overall, just behind the Steelers D, and gave up an average of  14.3 points per game.  Add in 18 forced fumbles, 23 INTs, 42 sacks, along with 2 return TDs from the special teams, you got a Fantasy stud.  Of course there are other Fantasy standouts on the Niners offense.  Frank Gore is still a dependable RB with gas in the tank. He’s coming off a 1200+ yard season, with 8 touchdowns.  There’s also TE Vernon Davis, who is consistently a top target for Alex Smith, and Michael Crabtree, is emerging as a sure handed go-to WR.  There is also new additions to the team that can also make fantasy impacts, like rookies AJ Jenkins at WR, and LaMichael James at RB.  And lets not forget, FA signees, Brandon Jacobs, Mario Manningham, and the return of Randy Moss.

The 49ers came into Detroit with most thinking they would lose. Everyone was drinking the silver and blue Kool-Aid and ready to anoint this team. Well, somebody forgot to tell the 49ers. Arguably the most physical football team in the NFL, San Francisco came in and imposed their will on the Lions. Continue reading
