There is a lot of buzz around San Francisco, especially with offensive genius, Kyle Shanahan at the helm. Carlos Hyde is no longer with the team, and San Francisco quickly replaced him with Jerick McKinnon. He is an athletic back, but hard to envision him as a three down guy. We will likely still see Joseph Williams and Matt Breida sprinkled in given McKinnon is more of a speed guy. George Kittle flashed some upside in games last season, and is expected to be the starting tight end. Kittle should lead the way in snaps, barring injury. After Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin, there is a spot open for a WR3 battle. Trent Taylor and Aldrick Robinson are the two names to keep an eye on.
