DFS sleepers to consider for 49ers in NFC title game

We identify some DFS sleepers for the 49ers ahead of the NFC title game.

The San Francisco 49ers secured a place in the NFC title game after dominating the Minnesota Vikings at Levi’s Stadium on Saturday and will host the Green Bay Packers next Sunday for a sport in Super Bowl 54. Some under-the-radar 49ers could step it up and have big games against their next opponent, and we selected a pair of DFS sleeper picks you should keep an eye on.

WR Emmanuel Sanders

It’s hard to key in on any pass catcher in San Fransisco’s offense. After all, star tight end George Kittle was held to three receptions for 16 yards in the Divisional Round. But Sanders is one the wide receivers most likely to have a breakout performance. If he gets involved early, Jimmy Garoppolo should look to keep finding him. Sanders has logged more than 100 receiving yards in the two games he’s hauled in more than four passes with the 49ers.

RB Matt Breida

Tevin Coleman had the hot hand in the Divisional Round, and San Fransisco will probably continue to select its feature back on a game-by-game basis. Raheem Mostert or Breida could be next in line to receive the bulk of the carries. Breida has rushed for more than 100 yards in a game twice this year and could be the punt play that helps you rake in the cash.
