Fantasy Power Rankings No. 15 – San Francisco

The San Francisco 49ers break into the top half of the 2015 fantasy football power rankings, checking in at No. 15.

The 49ers were the 22nd most valuable team from a fantasy perspective in 2014. The loss of running back Frank Gore is mitigated by the expected rise of Colin Kaepernick and Carlos Hyde, as well as the addition of wideout Torrey Smith.

This season, the 49ers offer fantasy owners 4.3 percent more value than the average NFL team and 73 percent as much value as the NFL’s best team.

    Ty, let’s jump into a league together. I’ll start my team with Bradford, DeMarco Murray, Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz, you start yours with Kaepernick, Hyde, Torrey, Anquan and Vernon Davis and we’ll draft the rest from there. I’ll even give you the first pick. Does that sound like it’s work a look?

      Hey Independent_Jones. The Eagles hype has definitely picked up steam as the season has gotten closer, and the 49ers have moved in the opposite direction.

      However, both teams actually offer fantasy owners very similar things from a fantasy perspective. Both offer borderline QB1s (Kap has more upside), both offer borderline RB1s and running back flex options (Murray has more upside), the Eagles offer a WR2 and flex option at wideout while the 49ers offer a WR3 and flex option, and both offer tight ends with plenty of upside, although Ertz’s is more likely to be unlocked.

      And, again, I did not make these power rankings based on whether or not I liked the players or not. I used our PFF projections, plugged in my formula, and let the rankings create themselves.

      I’ll definitely be doing a recap at the end of the season and we can see how accurate it all ends up being.
