49ers

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - 2018 Nfl Preview Capsules -

6-10, 4th in divi­sion.

Is Jimmy G the player 49ers fans think he is? He’s 7-0 as a starter, 5-0 with the 49ers. He’s al­ready in their record book, with more yards pass­ing through his first five starts (1,542) than any quar­ter­back in team his­tory.

He didn’t have big sack num­bers last sea­son but cre­ated a lot of chaos and pres­sure. As a rookie in 2016, Buck­ner was one of nine play­ers in the league with six or more sacks and two or more fum­ble re­cov­er­ies.

The 49ers are pay­ing him big bucks to be the No. 1 back in place of Car­los Hyde. McKin­non stepped in ably for the in­jured Dalvin Cook in Min­nesota last sea­son.

Ar­guably the fastest player in the NFL, Good­win has a ca­reer year last sea­son, and Kyle Shana­han is go­ing to find some cre­ative ways to use Good­win’s fleet feet.
