Drafting an all 49er fantasy football team

If you’ve ever played fantasy football, especially with friends or family, you’ve always got that one person, who is an absolute homer for his team.

He doesn’t care about a fantasy football championship, he only cares that he got all the players from his favorite team on his fantasy squad.

For the sake of argument, and for this piece, here’s a rundown of how you could go full homer and select on all-San Francisco 49er squad in your fantasy football league.

Yes, they may laugh at you at first, but when you’ve got that one Monday Night game to go and you’ve got eight players still pending to play, that manager is no longer laughing, he’s a nervous wreck while you sit back and enjoy the tension, hoping it will last as long as possible.

With that, here’s a rundown of how you could go all homer and select an all-49er squad in 2014.

First thing to consider is that your league is based on a 10-team format using the 1 QB, 3 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 Defense/Special Teams as your starters.

You could expect to start picking your first 49er some time around the second round and over the course of rounds two through six, you could successfully select in succession, though not in particular order; Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Frank Gore and Colin Kaepernick.

After the Big 4 come off the board, there should be a little bit of a lull between your next 49er picks, which should start around the late 8th or early 9th round, and those picks include the 49ers defense, Anquan Boldin and Phil Dawson.

By the 12th round, you should already have most of the 49ers on your squad, leaving only Stevie Johnson left to pick, completing a team that looks like the following:

QB: Colin Kaepernick

RB: Frank Gore

WR: Michael Crabtree

WR: Anquan Boldin

WR: Stevie Johnson

TE: Vernon Davis

K: Phil Dawson

D/ST: 49ers

Something to think about if you’re in the mood for going homer with your 49ers this coming season.

With the exception of a RB2, you’ve got the entire 49er squad on your team. Pretty cool hu? And it’s very doable as well. Mind you that you don’t exactly have to start all the 49ers players you select, but you would have an entire squad composed of your 49ers.
