Garçon, much like the rest of the 49ers receivers, had a hard time getting things going in 2018. A nagging knee injury limited the veteran wideout to 24 catches for 286 and one touchdown in just eight games.
Speaking of nagging injuries, Breida fought through a sprained ankle all season long and still put up big numbers. He played in 14 games and averaged 5.3 yards per carry. Breida finished the season with 814 rushing yards and three touchdowns to go with 27 receptions for 261 yards and two more scores through the air.
6. CB Ahkello Witherspoon
Witherspoon had an up-and-down sophomore campaign. He was in and out as the starter opposite Richard Sherman due to injuries and poor play. Witherspoon was coming on late before a knee injury ended his season after 14 games. He recorded 37 tackles, four passes defended and one fumble recovery. Witherspoon is looking at a training camp competition in order to earn his starting job back in 2019.
Colbert played in seven games and recorded 21 tackles before going on IR with a high-ankle sprain.
Ward is the only player on this list who is an impending free agent. The 49ers picked up Ward’s fifth-year option in 2018, and it will be interesting to see what they decide on the veteran defensive back this offseason. Ward played in nine games this season (seven starts), forced one fumble and recorded 24 total tackles.
