The 49ers signed receiver Brandon Lloydafter missing out on, seemingly, every other free agent at the position. As it stands, Lloyd’s ceiling would be as the 49ers third receiver but it would be a huge upset if San Francisco didn’t use one of the six picks they have in the first two days on a receiver. There’s very little potential for Lloyd in dynasty leagues.
In other 49ers news, local writers predict that linebacker Aldon Smith won’t play for San Francisco next year. It would be a huge blow for them and Smith including his dynasty value. Here’s hoping he can get some help and get his life on track.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had another big day against the Packers, going 16 of 30 for 227 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. However, he did a lot of damage on the ground with 98 yards. If Kaepernick can keep putting up these kinds of numbers in the regular season, he’ll still be a QB1 prospect in dynasty leagues.
Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy capped off his rookie season with 81 yards on 21 carries. He also added two catches. Lacy had an impressive rookie year and should be a low-end RB1 prospect going forward.
49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree had a huge game with eight catches for 125 yards. Crabtree showed no signs of the injury that kept him out most of the year and should return next year in top form. He’ll be back in San Francisco next year on a team-friendly deal and is a WR2 in his current environment. Be on the lookout for where he ends up in 2015.
49ers linebacker Aldon Smith led the team with 1.5 sacks to go with four tackles. Smith has had a unique year, racking up 8.5 sacks in just 11 games after missing five games due to rehab.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick showed flashes of his potential greatness going 19 of 29 for 203 yards, two touchdowns, and zero turnovers. He also added 39 yards rushing. Granted, it was against a bad team but Kap could be back on track.
Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright had his first good game in a while, catching seven of nine targets for 82 yards and a touchdown. Wright should head in to 2014 as the starter and could be a decent dynasty option at tight end.
49ers linebacker Aldon Smith had two sacks and is picking up where he left off. Hopefully Smith can keep his head on straight and continue to be the productive linebacker he’s shown to be in the past.
Tampa Bay has namedMike Glennonquarterback going forward. Josh Freeman is officially done. If you’re quarterback starved, here’s an in-season option.
49ers linebacker Aldon Smith is headed to rehab and will be out for the foreseeable future. Hopefully, Smith can rebound and return to football very soon.
Lions receiver Ryan Broyles will be getting more attention in the wake of Nate Burleson’s injury. He’ll still man the slot in the pass-happy Lions offense and still quite young. He’s on the dynasty radar.
Speaking of Detroit, they’ve asked about Cleveland receiver Josh Gordon in a trade. Gordon in the Lions offense would be dynamite. His stock skyrocketed thanks to his big day Sunday but keep an eye on him if the price drops.
Patriots receiver Danny Amendola is progressing well. Now would be the time to buy-low from someone tired of Amendola’s injury shenanigans. He is a dynamic player when healthy but that seems to be a 50/50 proposition.
