With the offseason in full swing https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Deion-Sanders-Jersey , all sorts of analyses on the San Francisco 49ers roster will be firing out. season. NFL.com did their assessments of NFL rookies and gave the 49ers a ‘B’ grade. Writer Jeremy Bergman was put in charge of the NFC West and had this to say when he came to the 49ers: For comparison, the Arizona Cardinals did a bit better with a ‘B+’ grade, Seattle Seahawks got a generous ‘B-’ grade and the Los Angeles Rams got slapped with a ‘D-’ grade. If only the 49ers didn’t flub their first two picks in 2017, this could be back-to-back solid production from their rookie classes. Unfortunately, the jury is still out on if Solomon Thomas can be a long-term solution and Reuben Foster’s personal issues lead to him getting released after a season and a half. Both of them were taken in the first round and their current situations are less than ideal. Adrian Colbert left for injured reserve early in 2018 and Ahkello Witherspoon was a shadow of himself as well—which makes 2017’s class take another hit. The 49ers have overhauled their roster since John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan took over and 2018 might be a special draft class. 2017 got them George Kittle and that already did enough, but D.J. Jones is also set to take over the nose tackle spot from recently released Earl Mitchell. Don’t forget the 49ers found both Matt Breida and Nick Mullens as undrafted free agents. Also don’t forget about Trent Taylor who was held back in 2018 from his back surgery. 2017 might not be an earth-shattering rookie class, but they managed to find several pieces to build the team they want, which is a heck of a lot better than what prior drafts have netted the 49ers. The 2018 class has been productive on all fronts. First, second, and third round picks all have grown into possible starters.Aside from Kentavius Street who was sidelined with his knee injury and Jullian Taylor who spent most of his season on the sidelines developing, the 2018 class contributed on the field, on game day in some way shape or form. The big question for the running backs is what the three-headed beast will be with Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. Either direction, the 49ers will have Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida along with one of those two aforementioned names. That would be one 3rd round pick (McKinnon) and two UDFAs (Breida Joe Montana Color Rush Jersey , Mostert, and Wilson) helming the 49ers backfield.Sky’s the limit with this class. The 49ers might just need a few more pieces and the 2018 class just needs a bit more experience and maybe things can get turned around. The majority of leagues are down to the final four teams in the postseason, so no more mad scramble to the waiver wire.There are fewer owners vying for players, especially in leagues that only allow playoff teams to make additions.Plus, the majority of your starting lineup is likely set by now. Still, injuries and other situations can always cause you to dip into your depth. In leagues with three wide receiver slots, your third starter may not be a sure thing. There are still existing and potential needs that will exist, so keep working the waiver wire.KENNETH DIXON, RB, Ravens (2.7 percent owned): Just when fantasy owners were starting to get comfortable with Gus Edwards, Dixon returned from a long knee injury layoff and started cutting into Edwards’ workload in a significant way in his second game back. Dixon had 59 rushing yards on eight carries and scored the team’s only rushing touchdown. John Harbaugh said he also expects Dixon’s role to grow. So he is a prime waiver add in case he usurps Edwards as the main fantasy producer. He could at least become a potential flex option for Week 16 with another quality outing.ELIJAH MCGUIRE, RB, Jets (11.3): A toe injury forced Isaiah Crowell out against Buffalo and the versatile sparkplug McGuire stepped in and totaled 83 yards from scrimmage and rushed for a TD. McGuire is not only speedy, he is physical and has the frame to fight for extra yardage at 5-10 Y.A. Tittle Jersey , 214 pounds. He could be the most talented RB on the Jets roster and has been an internal favorite for some time. If Crowell continues to miss time or is limited, McGuire has some upside.JOHN KELLY, RB, Rams (3.7): If you won despite Todd Gurley’s disappointing Week 14 performance, you still need his direct handcuff in case he suffers an injury. Malcolm Brown is done for the season because of a clavicle injury, and now the rookie sixth-round pick is Gurley’s apparent backup. Kelly flashed nifty moves and speed during the preseason and will likely become Los Angeles’ lead runner in case of a Gurley injury.DANTE PETTIS, WR, 49ers (19.6): He was added in 17.3 percent of leagues last week, but he is still widely available and you have to check to see if he’s on your waiver list. Pettis has scored four times in the past three games and has become the top playmaker in the 49ers passing game outside of George Kittle. This week he faces the Seahawks, who he burned for 129 yards and two scores in Week 14. Pettis had a 75-yard catch and run for a score in that matchup. You can instantly use him as a WR3.TIM PATRICK, WR, Broncos (0.6): He was a surprise as a featured target for Case Keenum in his first game without Emmanuel Sanders. Patrick was targeted 10 times, catching seven for 85 yards. He seemed to be Keenum’s preferred target on many key passing downs. With another good outing this week, you may consider him for championship game usage against the Raiders in Week 16.ROBERT FOSTER https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Steve-Young-Jersey , WR, Bills (1.2): Most fantasy players don’t want to roster any Buffalo pass-catchers, especially during the playoffs. But dynamic rookie Josh Allen doesn’t give up on any play and is always willing to throw to make things happen. Foster has become a frequent target for Allen in important situations and has made a quick leap from the practice squad to actual fantasy relevancy. Since Week 10 he has three 90-plus yard games and two 100-yard outings. If you remain desperate for WR help you have to consider Foster as a waiver add. He’s an undrafted rookie, but the numbers are there.IAN THOMAS, TE, Panthers (25.5): Rookie tight ends have historically been huge gambles and often disappointments, but with Greg Olsen out, Thomas has fit nicely into the Carolina passing game in the past two weeks, He has caught 14 passes during that span with nine catches for 77 yards in Week 14. At the ultra-thin TE position, he becomes an immediate add, and may be the most sought-after waiver candidate of Week 14. Cam Newton was looking for him often as the Panthers tried to stay with the Browns in an ultimate loss last week, and he will likely continue to make him part of the regular offensive flow. He was targeted 11 times against Cleveland.
