Alright … well … I want to hear about your fantasy football team – but only when it comes to the 49ers.
Josh Norris, fantasy analyst at NBC Sports, talked to the NBC Sports Bay Area about the fantasy value of the 49ers' weapons, and nothing is more interesting than the running back mix. If Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. play a role, who is the best?
Coleman will return to the 49ers in Week 5 after completing the Week 1 matchup against the Bucs with a sprained ankle. He should be ready to play a "Monday Night Football" matchup against the Cleveland Browns on October 7th. Unfortunately, we and Norris can not combine all three to make a great return. But Norris likes what he sees in Breida, maybe even more than what he saw in Coleman.
I know, he admitted that it sounded surprisingly as well.
"I'm not even sure if Tevin Coleman is a better talent than Matt Breida." Norris told NBC Sports Bay Area. "I'm not sure he's a better talent than Raheem Mostert, but when he gets into the lineup, Jeff Wilson is likely to sit in. Jeff Wilson is the one who saw all the touchdowns and scored all the touchdowns ̵
What about George Kittle? He has a breakout season behind him and sets NFL records. But this season he has a relatively slow start from a fantasy point of view. Is there a reason to give it up? Well, to Kittles defense, the tight end position is a mess in the league, says Norris.
"Just to be honest," he laughed.
"I know he did not make big numbers, but you must also remember that he recalled those two touchdowns the first week," he added. "See, I still think he has seen games with at least 10 and eight goals – he is still the center of the passing game for the 49. It would be difficult for me to place him outside the top three or four in the narrow end position forward and that is all you can ask for a tight end that you have retired at this second position at the position. "
OK … the real question. Well, one of them: What about Jimmy Garoppolo?
I believe in self-confidence, because it's fantasy, and Jimmy G. radiates it. But is that enough to record him as QB1? Or at least a QB 1?
Uh … maybe not so fast.
"I do not want to be negative here, Norris, but I do not know I would do it Record Jimmy Garoppolo, at least not right now," Norris said.
He highlighted the fact that Jimmy G is certainly improving in the game, which fans of 49s are sure to hear.
"It's a kind of matching. As good as the 49ers defense so far, we know that Kyle Shanahan plays the open games and Jimmy makes the easy throws."

But … keep an eye out for these future matchups.
"Maybe in week 7, when he faces the Washington Redskins, a team that was absolutely terrible in their secondary school."
