The San Francisco 49ers lost a “heartbreaking” preseason matchup to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night. Niner Noise looks over which players saw their stock rise or fall because of the contest.
On one hand, the San Francisco 49ers’ first-team units looked like a playoff-bound group during Sunday night’s preseason game versus the Minnesota Vikings.
Yet on the other, the Niners couldn’t find out a way to win, falling to the Vikings 32-31 in about as thrilling an exhibition match can be.
Week 3 of the preseason tends to be the biggest dress rehearsal for the regular season, so it’s good to know San Francisco’s starters — most of whom played the first half — outscored Minnesota 14-0 over quarters one and two.
This certainly will help a number of players’ stock rise heading towards the regular season.
On the flip side, though, other players didn’t help their cause, either to make the 53-man roster or to solidify a higher spot on the depth chart.
In this slideshow, we’ll take the latest look at the 49ers’ player stock assessment, breaking down who rose or fell during the contest.
Starting off with one bad moment from cornerback Keith Reaser.
