Week 10 update: The 49ers lost their third straight game to drop to 4-6. The 27-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints means they have clinched the under on their preseason win total (11).
Ahead of the 2020 NFL season, DraftKings Sportsbook set projected win totals for each NFL team. Some teams are well on their way to exceeding these win totals, outperforming the bar oddsmakers set for them prior to Week 1. Other teams need a bit more help to get there and the San Francisco 49ers are decidedly on this end of things midway through the season.
The 49ers entered 2020 with high expectations after blowing a fourth quarter lead to lose Super Bowl 54. They were NFC West favorites and on the short list of Super Bowl favorites. And then injuries happened. They lost Nick Bosa to a torn ACL and have since added Dee Ford, Richard Sherman, Tevin Coleman, and Raheem Mostert, among others to their injured reserve list. They’ve lost a host of other starters to shorter term injuries, including Kwon Alexander, Deebo Samuel, Jaquiski Tartt, and Jimmie Ward. It’s been a mess.
As they head into the back half of the season, the 49ers are a longshot to reach their preseason win total. It was set at 11 and barring an unexpected run, it’s not happening this year.
