2017 Outlook: Kyle Juszcyk

The 49ers made Kyle Juszczyk the highest-paid fullback in NFL history this offseason, but they're not planning on using him like a traditional fullback. He was introduced to the San Francisco media as an "offensive weapon" for the offense, hinting that he'll have the chance to do a lot more than just run block. Tack on creative playcaller Kyle Shanahan calling the shots and Juszczyk might actually get a few consistent touches from game to game. Obviously he's a long way from being a meaningful part of Fantasy rosters -- Carlos Hyde will probably take on most of the rushing work in San Fran -- but as a late-round flier in deeper PPR formats and best-ball leagues, Juszczyk provides some upside.
