San Francisco 49ers Fantasy Football Outlook (2023)

By Andrew Erickson (FantasyPros), Thu, Aug 17th 2023, 1:57pm EDT

Arguably the NFL's best real-life defense, the 49ers DST was awesome in 2022. They finished 3rd overall in points scored and in takeaways per game. Even with the loss of DC DeMeco Ryans, I don't think this unit takes a step back based on their personnel. If anything their strengths as a top-end run-stuffing defense will force teams to air the ball out, leading to more sacks/turnovers etc. The schedule is also very favorable to open the year with matchups at Pittsburgh, at the Rams, home versus the Giants and home versus the Cardinals.
