49ers getting some Fantasy respect? Or not?

Last year was my first time playing Fantasy Football and I had a BLAST with it.  While I enjoyed managing a team, it was always a struggle not to go pick up 9ers just because they were 9ers and I liked them.  There was also a side argument I had with my brother.  He contends that playing FFB equates to cheering for another team other than his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers...but that's a different discussion.

So I was watching NFL network "Top 10" this weekend (Joe Cool is the #1 "clutch QB" - like we needed a show to tell us that) - and saw the fantasy scroll in the crawl.  I saw Frank Gore as the #5 RB and was like WHOA!  That's awesome... finally getting some respect!!!  Saw Alex Smith ranked #15 (though as you see below he's fallen - or FFTB hasn't updated) and VD is ranked #4 in his position.

All tolled, there are 4 players ranked in the top 10 of their positions, and 7 49ers ranked in the Top 200 overall, which is above the statistical mean of 6.25 (200 top, divided by 32 teams).

I thought I would post their current positions here (pulled from the FFToolbox.com Top 200 list)  The first number is their overall ranking.  The (number) is their ranking at their position.  Players without a first number did not make the Top 200 overall.  Defensive players ranked by position for IDP leagues.

5 (5) - Frank Gore

73 ( 4 ) - Vernon Davis

83 (32) - Michael Crabtree

144 (66) - Josh Morgan

167 ( 8 )  - San Fran Defense

178 (79) - Jason Hill

183 (22) - Alex Smith

(21) - Joe Nedney

(17) - Ted Ginn (ranked as Returner)

(7) - Dashon Goldson (DB)

(1) - Patrick Willis (LB)

(11) - Justin Smith (DL)
