Football Outsiders projects the Niners to win 7.2 games
Joyce Park stashed this in The Sporting Life
After the 49ers breakthrough season last year under new coach Jim Harbaugh, Football Outsiders is still putting a tremendous weight on reversion towards the mean. Even the editor of the publication was surprised at how low the number was!
They attribute this to greater chance of injuries than last season when the Niners won 13 games.
Let's hope they're wrong.
