  • San Francisco 49ers D/ST Behind Chiefs In Super Bowl Projections

    The San Francisco 49ers D/ST should be a close second option for fantasy managers' D/ST slots when they face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas on Sunday for Super Bowl LVIII. San Francisco's fantasy defense has underperformed this season, finishing 10th in the regular season in standard scoring after being taken as a top-3 option in most drafts this summer. In the regular season, they delivered on their promise in terms of limiting opponent scoring, finishing third in the NFL in points allowed. They also did well to create 28 turnovers, good enough to tie for fifth in the league. San Francisco was expected to do better than seventh overall in sacks, however, after spending a good chunk of their payroll on their pass rush. Also holding down their production was a lack of touchdowns, only producing one all season. In two games this postseason, they've totaled three turnovers and two sacks. The Chiefs offense isn't necessarily a powerhouse and Patrick Mahomes set a personal high with 14 interceptions in the regular season this year. To his credit, Mahomes has been tough to bring down, only suffering 26 sacks all season which was the best among regular starters in the NFL. San Francisco's D/ST is an inferior choice to Kansas City's in Super Bowl LVIII, but not by much.

  • San Francisco 49ers D/ST A Top-Two Play In Divisional Round

    Headshot for Clelin Ferrell

    The San Francisco 49ers D/ST will take on the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round on Saturday night in Santa Clara. The Packers have been tough on opposing fantasy defenses lately. In their last five regular season games Green Bay has protected quarterback Jordan Love skillfully, only allowing one sack per game. For his part, Love has taken care of the ball, throwing one total interception in that time. In last week's first-round embarrassment of the Cowboys, Green Bay committed no turnovers. San Francisco's excellent defense comes into the game rested and near full-strength except for DE Clelin Ferrell (knee) who is out and LB Dre Greenlaw is questionable (Achilles tendinitis). Despite Green Bay's recent hot streak, San Francisco has the pass rush and the motivation to flip the script and turn in a solid fantasy performance.
