Dynasty Draft Advice: George Kittle, Brandon Aiyuk, Christian McCaffrey, Brock Purdy

The thought of all the fantasy weaponry in the rugged NFC West has me biting my lip with goosebumps climbing my arms. Dynasty fantasy football is both a long and short game. This division has you covered either way.

The 49ers were conference champs and topped the division with 12 wins, but the Rams and Seahawks both finished above .500 with the former earning a Wild Card berth. Even the Cardinals, under new head coach Jonathan Gannon, showed some teeth despite logging only four wins. Looking ahead at 2024 and beyond, all four teams have plenty to offer in the way of fantasy production at every position. Let’s dive into some dynasty draft advice for the San Francisco 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers Dynasty Draft Advice

The Brock Purdy glow-up is certainly a sight to behold. We can’t fault him for waking up on third base convinced he hit a triple. It is what it is. A perfect offensive system teeming with elite weapons must have its catalyst, just as a towering pyre loaded with tinder needs a spark. Purdy is that ignition point, despite having less-than-stupendous passing traits himself. Hand to glove, letter to mailbox. He was QB6 in fantasy last season. The long-term prognosis is overwhelmingly positive as well. When (not if) the 49ers extend Purdy to a big money extension, they will lose their bargain basement leverage on the cap. Judging by how John Lynch has handled such maneuvering in the past it would indicate further shedding of salary on defense. This means more shootouts and more upside for the aw-shucks kid from Iowa State.

Pepperidge Farm remembers when Christian McCaffrey was “injury prone.” Nonsense. 49ers running backs were thought of in the same way and something had to give when McCaffrey was traded from Carolina. Nothing gave. McCaffrey is a legendary football player and a fantasy football Hall of Famer. If he were to fall off the proverbial “age cliff” for dynasty managers, it would have already happened. Forge ahead and reap a few more illustrious years of dynasty warfare spoils. The latest draft pick for San Francisco is athletic marvel Isaac Guerendo from Louisville. Don’t overreach in rookie drafts. 49ers RBs were deserted on the bench all season and Guerendo will struggle to usurp Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason.

The receiver room in San Francisco is even better now than it was last season. Trade rumors around Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel reached a frenzy leading up to the NFL Draft, but it was all smoke. The team added route-running ace Ricky Pearsall at the end of the first round. He is a stellar technician versus man coverage, something sorely lacking from last season’s corps in the Super Bowl. Aiyuk’s value is at a peak right now, which opens a selling window for a dynasty roster looking to transform into something younger. Samuel is a pivotal cog in the Shanahan offense and in good health will persist as a high-upside player for a couple of more years.

George Kittle is still a monster. For the fifth time in six seasons, Kittle was a top-five TE in fantasy and even cracked 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since 2019. Interesting to see the 49ers reach the Super Bowl when they involve their elite TE more often down the field. The risk will always be his running fewer routes because of his incredible blocking acumen. That still should not deter anyone from investing in the 30-year-old superstar.
