San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers won six of their 16 games last season and they are hoping to have a better season this year. In their last preseason game, the 49ers defeated the Raiders with a final score of 34-10. Jimmy Garoppolo will take the lead for his team but he seems to be struggling after an injury. Nick Bosa is the other key player for the 49ers and is all set to be a strong defensive force. The 49ers will need more power with their offensive lines to get past some of the top teams on the season.
Players to watch: Nick Mullens QB (GP 10, CMP 211, ATT 326, CMP% 64.7, YDS 2437, AVG 7.5, YDS/G 244.5, LNG 49, TD 12, INT 12, SACK 19, SYL 139, RTG 84.1), Jeff Wilson Jr. RB (GP 12, ATT 126, YDS 600, AVG 4.8, LNG 34, BIG 3, TD 7, YDS/G 50, FUM 2, LST 2, FD 31), Brandon Aiyuk WR (GP 12, REC 60, TGTS 96, YDS 748, AVG 12.5, TD 5, LNG 49, BIG 10, YDS/G 62.3, FUM 0, LST 0, YAC 289, FD 43).
Detroit Lions won five of their 16 games last season as they finished behind the Vikings in the NFC North. The Lions have room for improvement, especially after dropping all their preseason games. Detroit has Jared Goof as their leader from the offensive end. Goff will need to be consistent enough to help his teammates with their running game. The Lions are not too strong from the defensive side either and playing against opponents in the NFC North seems to be an issue at present.
Players to watch: David Blough QB (GP 1, CMP 6, ATT 10, CMP% 60, YDS 49, AVG 4.9, YDS/G 67, LNG 20, TD 0, INT 1, SACK 1, SYL 10, RTG 32.9), Adrian Peterson RB (GP 16, ATT 156, YDS 604, AVG 3.9, LNG 38, BIG 4, TD 7, YDS/G 37.8, FUM 0, LST 0, FD 34), T.J. Hockenson TE (GP 16, REC 67, TGTS 101, YDS 723, AVG 10.8, TD 6, LNG 51, BIG 6, YDS/G 45.2, FUM 0, LST 0, YAC 332, FD 40).
