Ryan Sitzmann
The IDP Guru
I have Warner listed lower than most other IDP rankers and when you look at his stats/play last year, you may be asking why. Well, my main concern is that he had his best games after Kwon Alexander went out with a season-ending injury and when he was playing alongside career backups. I like Warner a lot as a player, but I have my doubts he can produce top-10 fantasy numbers playing alongside Alexander. Additionally, the 49ers defense is again expected to be one of the best in the league which is likely to mean less snaps for Warner to produce elite levels.Cunningham has continued to improve with each passing year and he took a big leap forward last year registering 100 solo tackles and 42 assists to go along with two sacks. Teammate Bernardrick McKinney's skillset and utilization doesn't really pose a threat to Cunningham's production, so we should expect similar production to last year.

The Fantasy First Down
After a lot of tackles in his rookie season, Fred Warner took a jump into the fantasy top 12 by replicating that effort and adding in a heap of sacks, forced fumbles, passes deflected and even an intercept and a TD. With the 49ers defence so strong it's hard to know exactly what to expect in 2020 but Warner certainly has plenty of upside in a team with a lot of weapons to keep track of.Zach Cunningham's massive jump in tackles led to significant improvement in his fantasy effectiveness. Entering his fourth season, he's now knocking on the door of LB1 status but he lacks the consistency or reliability to be drafted there. If he can bring more to his game than tackling though, he has big fantasy upside in an offence that's going to be busy.
