Golden Nuggets: Welcome to game week

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday September, 4th, 2018

In less than a week, the San Francisco 49ers will be taking on the Minnesota Vikings in NFL regular season action. That’s right, we get a regular season game. FOOTBALL IS HERE.

Thank God.

I’ve had my fantasy draft and I got Jimmy Garoppolo. If he lights up Minnesota’s defense (which I also have) I’ll have some decisions to make in the coming weeks.

But this week is also the worst. Waiting for the first game is the most agonizing. It doesn’t help matters that the 49ers are an afternoon game (well it’s good for the team, but not for my anxiety). Just start counting down the days. Jimmy G is here to save the day.
