San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent CB Chris Culliver is expected to be one of the most sought after cornerbacks if he hits free agency, and a lucrative deal is expected. According to multiple team sources he is graded high by many teams.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson had only one 100-yard game this past season and finished the season with 435 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Johnson likely will not be able to find a starting job in free agency but could find an opportunity to be a No. 3 receiver. Johnson could be an option in the later rounds of drafts next season depending on his situation.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Frank Gore's representation is engaged in contract negotiations with the team, 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula said at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. Tomsula and 49ers general manager Trent Baalke agreed that re-signing their own talent was a priority.
Fantasy Tip: Gore may still have a little bit left in the tank for fantasy owners, but investing anything more than a midround selection is a risky proposition. Treat him as a modest RB3, at best, if he returns to the 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Michael Crabtree and the team have begun contract talks, according to head coach Jim Tomsula. General manager Trent Baalke said Wednesday, Feb. 18, that it's a priority for the 49ers to re-sign their own talent.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like things are pointing up for Crabtree to return to San Francisco. He's coming off a hugely disappointing 2014 campaign after playing in just five games in 2013, but has at least WR2 potential when he's healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is one of several free agents on the 49ers. He had a bounce-back year with 698 yards and four touchdowns. Crabtree would be a decent WR3 option in fantasy leagues but could go up a bit depending on where he lands.

San Francisco 49ers LBs Patrick Willis (toe) and NaVorro Bowman are expected to return next year on their current contracts, general manager Trent Baalke hinted at. Willis is scheduled to make $8.315 million, and Bowman will make $5.45 million. Willis continues to rehab his toe after having season-ending surgery and Bowman is over a year removed from a knee injury.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis will return to the team next season, according to general manager Trent Baalke. Davis will make $4.95 million in the final year of his deal, but he's coming off a season in which he had just 26 catches for a measly 245 yards and two touchdowns (both in the season opener). Davis is expected to take part in the team's offseason program after skipping the mandatory minicamp last offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Davis' exceptionally poor 2014 screwed all of his owners over royally. Expect his price to drop significantly in 2015 drafts. That means he could be a bargain as a low-end TE1 or top-tier TE2. A bounce-back season seems like it'd be in store, especially if Colin Kaepernick improves in the pocket.
