Ahmad Brooks released by 49ers

Ahmad Brooks, who was reportedly gaining some interest on the trading block, was released by the 49ers Friday. He was the longest tenured 49er and ranks third in franchise history in sacks with 51 1/2.

Fantasy Impact

It appears the 49ers are opting for youth in the front seven and maybe looking to save money by cutting Brooks. Brooks' production is going to be hard to replace, as he has led or tied for the team lead in sacks every season since 2013. Eli Harold figures to start in his place, and may have some value in IDP leagues that favor sacks if he can match the production Brooks had.

Ahmad Brooks plays well in loss

Ahmad Brooks had four total tackles, a sack and a pass defended in the Seahawks' shellacking of the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

Brooks has random bursts of production. He is mostly a pass rushing OLB whose prime is long-since past and is a desperation play most weeks.

Ahmad Brooks gets 1.5 sacks in loss

Ahmad Brooks sacked Matthew Stafford and assisted on a NaVorro Bowman sack as well. He chipped in three total tackles.

Fantasy Impact

Brooks has played decently the last few weeks, continuing a pattern of him under-performing, moping when things don't go his way, and then picking up the pace as the season winds down. Brooks should have been a cap casualty, but the 49ers' apocalyptic off-season left them scrambling for continuity, and Brooks received a stay of execution. If the 49ers part ways with the ten-year veteran this offseason, they will save almost $15 million in cap space over the next two years.

Ahmad Brooks collects his fifth sack

Brooks had five total tackles to go along with his sack. It is his first sack since Russell Wilson week eleven.

Fantasy Impact

He doesn't get consistent enough tackle numbers or nearly enough sacks to be fantasy relevant.

Ahmad Brooks is in concussion protocol

Ahmad Brooks is reportedly in the concussion protocol after suffering from headaches in Sunday's game.

Fantasy Impact

This doesn't do much, as the Cardinals were going to roll all over the 49ers anyway. This leaves the 49ers with Aaron Lynch as their only real pass rusher. The Cardinals are going to feast Sunday with no pass rush to speak of from the 49ers.
