Kyle Juszczyk is widely regarded as the best fullback in the NFL. Pro Football Focus graded Juszczyk as the number one ranked fullback in the NFL in 2016. He has been one of the best receiving weapons out of the backfield which accounts for a lot of his value. The former 4th round pick from Harvard could be in line for an increase in carries as well behind Carlos Hyde.
Juszczyk, 25, has 97 career receptions for 769 yards and five touchdowns.
*The contract details have been released. The 49ers will give the fullback $21 million over 4 years. $10.5 million of the contract will be guaranteed.
