The San Francisco 49ers have been one of the most successful teams in the NFL over the past four seasons, reaching three NFC Championship Games due largely to a combination of impressive talent on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

On paper, by drafting skill position players like Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and George Kittle, while also trading for established stars like Christian McCaffrey and Trent Williams, the 49ers have built one of the strongest rosters in the league.

Who are the most valuable players on the offensive side of the ball for the 49ers?

With minicamp complete and training camp over a month away, it's the perfect time for an interesting exercise with the 49ers offense: an all-offense fantasy draft using only current 49ers to determine the most valuable players on the team.

Teaming up with 49ers Rush's John Chapman, we sought to draft the best offensive rosters possible in a snake draft, with tough decisions at several positions in which the 49ers will likely entertain training camp battles for roster spots.

Here are the final rosters:


Team Rohan: Brock Purdy
Team John: Trey Lance

Running Backs

Team Rohan: Elijah Mitchell
Team John: Christian McCaffrey

Wide Receivers

Team Rohan: Brandon Aiyuk, Ray-Ray McCloud
Team John: Deebo Samuel, Jauan Jennings

Tight Ends

Team Rohan: Kyle Juszczyk
Team John: George Kittle


Team Rohan: Jordan Mason
Team John: Danny Gray

Offensive Line

Team Rohan: Trent Williams, Aaron Banks, Jake Brendel, Jason Poe, Nick Zakelj
Team John: Matt Pryor, Jaylon Moore, Jon Feliciano, Spencer Burford, Colton McKivitz

In the exercise, there were some positions that involved significant depth, such as running back and quarterback, while other positions faced a lack of quality backups, such as tackle and tight end, forcing difficult decisions in the fantasy draft.

Who ended with the better roster?

George Kittle says Brock Purdy lifts 49ers offense; Eager for Eagles game

By David Bonilla

Tight end George Kittle values the presence of Brock Purdy in the San Francisco 49ers' huddle. The quarterback has played efficiently, contributing to the team's three consecutive wins following a costly October slump. Purdy is on track to become the first 49ers quarterback to surpass 4,000 passing yards since Jeff Garcia did so in 2000. In fact, his projected 4,437 yards would set a franchise record. "I think I can speak for everybody on our offense, we're continually impressed with the things that Brock does all the time," Kittle told Jim Rome on Tuesday. "His consistency every single day, the relationship that he's built with all of our skilled players, all the guys that he gets the ball to, it's pretty amazing. And we all feel that [comfort] with

It took nine years, but the San Francisco 49ers finally got some payback on Thursday night for the Seattle Seahawks feasting on turkey after a win at Levi's Stadium in 2014. The Seahawks' 19-3 win over the 49ers on Thanksgiving in 2014 was the last time either team played on Thanksgiving before Thursday night, and after that game then-Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman dug into the postgame turkey at the 50-yard line of Levi's Stadium at a time when the rivalry between the two teams was at a peak. The 49ers flipped the script on Thursday, notching a 31-13 win over the Seahawks at Lumen Field in Seattle that was followed by a slew of 49ers getting their fill of Thanksgiving turkey, courtesy of NBC.
