What NFL experts predict for the 49ers’ 2023 season originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

The 2023 NFL season has officially started and the 49ers have their sights set on the franchise’s sixth Super Bowl championship.

San Francisco may have one of the best rosters the team has ever had and is a popular choice to win the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season.

Here’s what NFL experts predict for the 49ers’ 2023 season:

*Based on Frelund’s million-run simulation of every NFL regular season gameme*

San Francisco 49ers
Projected NFC West Champions

Ceiling: 12.8

Floor: 8.7

FanDuel over/under: 10.5

“As we head into this fantasy football season, I feel like some people forget how great a healthy Deebo Samuel is, but not this analyst,” Frelund wrote. “Deebo sails past 750 receiving yards in 59.4 percent of my models. I expect him to reach almost 1,000 yards and he is my WR16.”

“The most valuable player of the 2023 season will be Christian McCaffrey,” Schrager said on “Good Morning Football.” I think the 49ers are the No. 1 seed in the NFC, and I think McCaffrey is the engine that drives them. over there.

“If you’re going to win MVP as a running back, you better run for 2,000 yards or go for 1,000 and 1,000 on 100 catches. It’s all possible for this guy. I got McCaffrey as the league’s MVP even though this is a quarterback award is You have to be so good, so historic, and I see that in this violation.

“When it’s all said and done by the end of the year, it will be undeniable. Yes, we love our quarterbacks; they can all go for the Offensive Player of the Year award. MVP? McCaffrey!”

Super Bowl: Bengals 24, 49ers 17; Joe Burrow MVP

Conor Orr:
Super Bowl: Bengals 31, 49ers 27; Joe Burrow MVP

Gilberto Manzano:
Super Bowl: Bengals 31, 49ers 27; Joe Burrow MVP

“The 49ers have the best roster in the NFL and Brock Purdy appears to be the right quarterback to lead them to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas,” Manzano wrote. “The Bengals aren’t as loaded as the 49ers, but they have the quarterback advantage with Burrow, which will be enough for Cincinnati to earn its first Lombardi Trophy, and some payback for the two Super Bowl losses in the ’80s against San Francisco.”

Superbowl 58: LA Chargers over Eagles

Bold prediction for 2023: “George Kittle will reach 1,000 receiving yards for the first time since 2019,” Walder wrote. Despite having fewer yards receiving in recent seasons, Kittle’s receiving ability has not diminished. In each of the past four seasons, he has ranked in the top two in overall receiver tracking metrics among tight ends ends. He also has a good relationship with Purdy at the end of last season, which will pay off in 2023.”

“We can save everyone a ton of time by using the Chiefs as my Super Bowl pick every season for the next decade,” Ruiz wrote. “Let’s just say two decades to be safe. I went with chalk all over the board in the AFC, but picked new division winners in three of the four NFC divisions. It might take Kyle Shanahan a month or two to realize that his team’s best quarterback is currently on the bench. That’s a blight on my price choices.”

NFL Comeback Player of the Year: Sam Darnold

“I refuse to believe that we live in a world where Purdy has been a starter for a long time,” Ruiz added. “I’m not going to let Shanahan get me down! Purdy was a seventh-round pick for a reason! Darnold is the most talented quarterback Shanahan has had in San Francisco! That’s too many exclamation points. I need to calm down.

“But I’m actually concerned that Purdy’s runaround style will get him into trouble. Especially in this system, which can expose quarterbacks to hits. Darnold will play at some point this season, and Shanahan has a habit of bringing out the best. ” If we see Darnold’s top quarterbacks (remember, he was the third overall pick in 2018 for a reason), he’s probably not giving up that job.”

Kyle Shanahan shows brilliance as 49ers earn sixth Lombardi Trophy

“49ers over Bills has been my Super Bowl pick all season, and I’m not changing it now, heading into kickoff,” Schein wrote.

“Admittedly, I was a little panicked when I sat down to write this column – at that point, reigning Defensive Player of the Year Nick Bosa was still holding his own. On top of the fact that DeMeco Ryans no longer drives San Francisco’s defensive ship, not having Bosa was a concerning thought. Still, I thought the Niners had enough talent to temporarily survive Bosa’s absence – and now they don’t even have to! On Wednesday, Bosa signed a five-year, $170 million extension. On to the franchise’s sixth Lombardi Trophy!

“Wait, Mr. Irrelevant from 2022 Real lead this team to a Super Bowl title? Yes. Yes he can. I just ranked the Brock Purdy-led Niners offense as the best in the league, so I’m clearly confident in San Francisco putting points on the board. How could you not are? Kyle Shanahan is a special offensive mind. And with weapons at his disposal including Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Brandon Aiyuk and Elijah Mitchell, Shanahan will continue to confuse opposing defenses with his inspired game plans. Meanwhile, the defense just ranked first in yards And points allowed last season. The group is full of difference makers at every level, including the newly PAID pocket artist in jersey No. 97.”
