Arizona Cardinals v San Francisco 49ers

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Just a spoon full of offense helped the 49ers team defense play as one of the best units in the NFL last year. Sure, this group still needed to improve against the pass but no one could deny their ability to stop the run and get to the quarterback as they were one of the best sack teams.

With middle linebacker / IDP stud Patrick Willis leading the charge this unit could play the type of football we come to expect from a team led by head coach Mike Singletary.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: If the 49ers offense was good for a spoon full of help last year, they should provide a Gatorade jugs worth this year. With a potentially dominant offensive line and playmakers all around the field this team should play with a lead going into the 4th quarter of many games.

Keeping their defensive players fresh and with a lead late in games should only bring out the beast of physical play that a Singletary team is expected to perform at. While this group still needs to improve in the secondary, they will dominate against teams that can’t expose them down the field.

The addition of Ted Ginn Jr. for the kick and punt game give this defense / special teams’ unit more value. Ginn may not be the receiver the Dolphins hoped he would be, but he can still be a great return man. Just ask the New York Jets as he scored two kick return touchdowns on them in one game last year.


– Playmakers / Strong LB Core

– Solid Against The Run

– Physical

– Good Schedule

– Good Kick and Put Returner


– Susceptible To Big Plays Against Good Quarterbacks
