San Francisco 49ers roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the San Francisco 49ers sort out their roster decisions.

The San Francisco 49ers suffered too many injuries to key players last season, ending any realistic hopes of a return trip to the Super Bowl. The key battle to watch is between QB Jimmy Garoppolo and QB Trey Lance, even if a starter is named. The 49ers took Lance No. 3 overall in the NFL draft and want to get him playing time eventually.

Another intriguing position to look at is running back. Kyle Shanahan is known to mix things up, which can be frustrating for fantasy owners. Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., Wayne Gallman and Trey Sermon will all be involved in the backfield. Injuries are something to watch here, as each player has durability concerns.
