San Francisco 49ers - 2022 NFL Season Preview and Wins Total Prediction

The San Francisco 49ers come into the 2022 season after a successful season a year ago. San Francisco has a host of talent on both sides of the ball and a head coach looking to make the right decisions to see his team prosper. San Francisco still has two quarterbacks on the roster but all signs point to Trey Lance finally taking over under center as the San Francisco quarterback.

Trey Lance is expected to be the starting quarterback in week one for the San Francisco 49ers and will have a plethora of weapons around him. Running back Elijah Mitchell is expected to be a safety blanket for the young quarterback early as Mitchell will find success running the ball as well as being a receiver in the pass game.

The San Francisco receiving group is one of the best in the NFL led by Deebo Samuels. Samuels made it clear in the offseason that he wanted to be done with the team but is still in San Francisco making him the primary receiver on the team. Brandon Aiyuk will see success as well, while tight end George Kittle will continue to make his case as the best player in the league at his position.

Despite a great offensive unit defensively San Francisco is ranked number three in the NFL in the preseason. Nick Bosa Is expected to be back at full strength this season and will dominate up front for San Francisco. Arik Armstead will be back on the defensive side of the ball for San Francisco as well as loaded depth chart to cover the field.
