PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Looked long and hard at this one for a Fishy Five pick.  Minnesota had a nice run last year.  However, their O is completely different.  They have OL injury issues, and as a result Cousins has performed poorly as the new signal caller.  San Fran is a team that is rebuilding quickly.  Grappalo still hasn’t lost as a starter (7-0), including winning the last 5 to close 2017.  He has 4 OL starters that were first round draft picks.  San Fran is a stinky dog in which will be a low-scoring game.  Hell, I still may pick them.
