49ers | Chip Kelly's pace not too different

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 11:24:48 -0800

San Francisco 49ers new head coach Chip Kelly ran a play every 22.7 seconds with the Philadelphia Eagles this past season, which was the fastest in the league. The 49ers were fifth with a play every 26.5 seconds.

Fantasy Tip: This is a plus for Colin Kaepernick, if the team elects to keep him this offseason. Kaep figures to fit Kelly's offense well, but it will depend on whether they can get the offensive line shored up. Kaep is an intriguing QB2 in fantasy right now.

49ers | Chip Kelly hired in San Fran

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 10:37:45 -0800

Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was hired by the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Jan. 14, as their new head coach. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly takes over a Niners team that is rebuilding and that has plenty of questions on offense. Will Colin Kaepernick be given a second chance? It's totally possible, and with a Kelly-led offense, Kaepernick could be intriguing as a deep sleeper pick in much deeper fantasy leagues next year if they keep him on board. Stay tuned. Kelly should be a big boost to the running game, too, making Carlos Hyde a bargain in the early rounds of drafts next year.

49ers | Niners interested in Chip Kelly

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 09:40:10 -0800

The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly giving strong consideration to hiring former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. The organization's thinking regarding current head coach Jim Tomsula changed during the middle of last week after Kelly was released from his contract in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly was a polarizing figure both on and off the field during his years with the Eagles and he is expected to utilize a fast-paced, no-huddle offense wherever he winds up. His potential hiring would have a huge impact on the fantasy value of all San Francisco offensive players.
