After another up and down season, Niner Nation fans have something to look forward to. Rookie MLB Thomas Curry won Defensive Rookie of the Year, while RB Tommie Baker was in the top 5 of Offensive Rookie of the Year even with missing five games with an injury. Second year Allen Wheaton had a solid season with over 800 yards receiving along with Dante Pettis with almost 900 yards. There was a huge resurgence in TE George Kittle, who was on pace for 1,300 yards receiving until a season ending injury ended his campaign after only 7 games. As for the team, for the first time under new management, the 49ers managed to win a couple division games and even more impressively, they defeated three teams that went on to the playoff this season. If you add all of this up, and with the returning of all of the core players, Niner Nation fans have hopes of making a playoff run in the 2024 season.
