49ers release unofficial depth chart heading into 2019 regular-season opener vs. Buccaneers

Sep 3, 2019 at 1:16 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers Communications staff has released the first unofficial depth chart of the regular season as the team prepares to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, September 8.

The game will be televised on FOX with Kenny Albert and Ronde Barber in the broadcast booth and Lindsay Czarniak on the sidelines.

While team depth charts can be interesting, it is important to note that they are not compiled by the coaching staff and you shouldn't read too much into them while trying to determine playing time for specific players.

With that being said, Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin are listed as the starting wide receivers while Matt Breida is listed as the starting running back.

On defense, Arik Armstead is listed as the right defensive end with rookie Nick Bosa listed as Dee Ford's backup on the left side. The starting linebackers are shown to be Dre Greenlaw (SAM), Fred Warner (MIKE), and Kwon Alexander (WILL). Jimmie Ward, not Tarvarius Moore, is listed as the starting free safety.

The depth chart has Pettis listed as the primary punt returner on special teams.

You can view the entire depth chart below.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo offers self-evaluation of 'productive' 2019 season, ready to take the next step

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a pretty good statistical season last year. He passed for 3,978 yards — the fourth-most in franchise history, joining names like Steve Young and Jeff Garcia. That's not bad. He tossed 27 touchdowns through the air and added another on the ground, but also threw 13 interceptions. That's something to improve. Garoppolo guided the 49ers to 13 regular-season wins, a division championship, home-field advantage, and a playoff run that ended with a trip to the Super Bowl. Again, not bad. Yet, Garoppolo shouldered much of the blame for February's Super Bowl loss. Then the 49ers flirted with the idea of bringing in Tom Brady. Garoppolo knew that's just part of the

Roster moves: D.J. Reed's season ends, Richie James taken off reserve/COVID-19 list, two activated, no 49ers opt out of season so far

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch announced a few roster moves before a Monday afternoon press conference conducted via Zoom. One was the decision to place safety D.J. Reed on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season. The versatile defensive back suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June. "That's a tough one for us," Lynch told reporters. "The earliest we might have had D.J. back was early November. It's a four-to-six-month injury, so that's been an active conversation Kyle and myself and the medical folks have been having. Ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that may go into December. So we made that

Seahawks GM admits 49ers TE George Kittle factored into decision to trade for Jamal Adams

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle can be a handful for opposing defenses. The first-team All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowl selection has recorded back-to-back seasons of over 1,000 receiving yards and highlights of him carrying New Orleans Saints defenders downfield may just be a preview of things to come. Kittle will likely sign a long-term deal sometime soon, meaning NFC West defenses will have to contend with him for the foreseeable future. The Seattle Seahawks gave up a haul for former New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. Some would criticize that they gave up too much. But in a division with Kittle lining up across from you twice a year, maybe Seattle felt it had to do something to close the gap on the defending NFC champions. Did it close
