The San Francisco 49ers don’t have too many needs on offense heading into 2019, although there are a couple of moves to be made to create an ideal starting lineup.
Fortunately, the offense has far fewer concerns than the defensive side of the ball. While far from perfect, head coach Kyle Shanahan’s unit still managed to finish last year as the NFL’s 16th best offense in total yards (5,769). This is pretty commendable, considering the swarm of injuries Shanahan and Co. had to deal with over the course of 2018.
That said, the team needs help in the red zone. Better wide receiver production is a must, too. And after looking at the multitude of injuries last season, one has to consider depth among San Francisco’s long list of offseason wishes.
All put together, a starting lineup isn’t too far away from being complete. Sure, some upgrades over players likely to start in 2019 would be great. But not everything is going to be feasible.
We’re not creating a fantasy Pro Bowl team here, rather one that could realistically be built.
So let’s kick off this Niner Noise offseason planning by breaking down what would be an ideal starting lineup for San Francisco’s offense when the regular season rolls around.
Starting off up front.
