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 running 'full-speed' at OTAs

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Navorro Bowman (Achilles) is back to running at "full speed" at OTAs. "Injuries are part of the game, but I’ve done everything I’ve needed to do to get back to where I am today," Bowman said via "I’m ahead of schedule. I don’t feel anything in my Achilles or my knee. Guys can see that out there on the field.”

Fantasy Impact

Bowman, who missed 12 games in 2016 with an Achilles injury, is "ahead of schedule" in his rehab and is "already back to running at full speed," per reports. The veteran linebacker will anchor a 49ers defense that was simply atrocious against the run last season. His presence should certainly boost the unit for the 2017 campaign.
