Bowman was leading all defensive players in fantasy points per game prior to going down with a season-ending Achilles' injury in Week 4. He's been cleared for training camp and Achilles' injuries are easier to return from than many think. But, on the flip side, this is the second significant injury Bowman's sustained in the last three years and he will more tackle competition this year with the addition of rookie Reuben Foster. Given his age and injury history, look for the 49ers to keep Bowman inside as they transition to a 4-3 defense under new Defensive Coordinator Robert Saleh. This should prove to a productive fantasy role for him and despite the previous stated concerns, he will see a ton of tackle opportunity on a team whose defense is expected to be on the field a ton in 2017.

Navorro Bowman to ride the pine in 2017?

The 49ers gave big money to free agent LB Malcolm Smith and drafted LB Rueben Foster in the first round of this year's draft. Bowman has said that he won't be on the sidelines this year, so it seems that he has some extra motivation to be the starter.

Fantasy Impact

When healthy, Bowman is the best LB in the league. If he's back to his old self, there is no way he'll be on the sidelines.
