When it comes to preseason game in the NFL, everything should be taken with a grain of salt. That is why San Francisco in general it is not all that worried about their offense at this point in time. However, anyone who plays fantasy football has to be a little bit worried about their effectiveness out on the field. They have been an absolute disaster so far in the preseason, but there is a chance that they turn everything around.
In the 1st 2 preseason games, San Francisco was only able to score a total of 3 points. Yes, the starters are not claim the entire game, but it is still a pretty big embarrassment for a team that is considered to be a Super Bowl contender. Baltimore and Denver looked extremely impressive against San Francisco, but perhaps the 49ers are not as strong as they originally thought on offense.
Colin Kaepernick, fresh off of signing a brand new long-term contract, is one of the guys really struggling out there on the field. He is just 12-22 passing for 115 yards so far. The contract he signed heavily relies on him playing well, so he is going to need to turn things around sooner rather than later to really get the type of money he wants.
The foundation of the offense for San Francisco has been the running game, but things are changing slowly but surely. Frank Gore is no longer a dominant running back at this point, so the passing game needs to be more dependable for them in general. Kaepernick is still learning to settle in and be a strong performer, but Greg Roman, the offensive coordinator for San Francisco, still wants to run the ball to set things up.
There is obviously time for San Francisco to sort things out, but people in fantasy football are a little bit worried about what they have seen so far. This team is in a very tough division, in a slow start could easily start to make people doubt whether or not they can make the playoffs in 2014.
