RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Bowman recorded his third-straight season with at least 135 tackles, and 2013 was his best in the NFL, finishing with 145 tackles, including 120 solo stops, five sacks, two interceptions and four forced fumbles. He'd be a top IDP pick if he hadn't suffered a torn ACL in the NFC championship game, which is expected to keep him out of training camp, and likely a spot on the PUP list to start the season. If that does happen, he will be ineligible to play the first six weeks of the season, grealty reducing his season-long totals.

2013

It seemed like an unfathomable suggestion just two years ago, but Bowman appears to have surpassed Patrick Willis as the top fantasy producer on the 49ers defense. The Penn State product entered his second season as a starter in 2012, finishing with 143 stops (92 solo) after totaling 136 tackles (107 solo) in his first year as a starter in 2011. With those two entries on his résumé, Bowman looks like a near lock to finish among the league's top-five tacklers as long as he plays a full season. Although he's an elite talent in his own right, that Bowman is surrounded by other great players means opponents can't single him out in the game plan. And Bowman almost never leaves the field – he logged 1,007 snaps on defense last year despite playing on a unit that often made quick work of opposing offenses.

2012

Bowman couldn’t have been much better in his first season as a starter in 2011, as his 143 tackles ranked seventh in the league, and his 111 solo stops ranked second. Bowman was one of the primary contributors in a historically great San Francisco run defense last year, and he was only 22 years old. It’s reasonable to expect improvement in 2012, particularly in the sack and interception categories. Bowman has the athleticism of a defensive back and figures to be more disruptive in coverage and as a pass rusher this season. It’s less likely that Bowman will improve his tackle total, however, as 143 is a high bar, particularly given that he’s competing with Patrick Willis for tackles in a defense that doesn’t spend much time on the field. Bowman has an extremely high floor, in any case, because offenses will forever be more worried about Willis and the Smiths than him.

2011

Bowman will start at inside linebacker. He could provide IDP value by racking up tackles playing next to Patrick Willis.

2010

Bowman is a skilled rookie who will likely back up veteran Takeo Spikes at inside linebacker in anticipation of becoming a starter in 2011.
