We analyze the Average Draft Position of the San Francisco 49ers’ fantasy assets, and tell you which Niners you should target in your upcoming 2017 fantasy football draft.
The 2016 season was a letdown for the San Francisco 49ers, both on the field, and among the fantasy football community.

Thankfully, in 2017, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan brings a new fantasy-rich offensive scheme to the team — one that produced three top-five fantasy producers at their respective positions in 2016.
