2020 Fantasy Outlook
Warner is an elite real-life linebacker thanks to his remarkable coverage abilities, though as an IDP his football skills almost work against him - he'd be a better IDP if he gave up more catches and piled up the resulting tackle opportunities. This means he's best thought of as an LB2 in most formats. Over his last two years, he totaled 242 tackles while playing 2,061 snaps - a solid tackle rate but one that threatens to trend toward the 100-tackle mark (rather than 120-plus) if his snap count slips below 1,000. Warner doesn't blitz much to offset this with just 1.5 sacks in the last two years, and while it wouldn't surprise if he goes on an interception spree one day, it's generally risky to chase turnovers with IDPs.

September 28, 2020
Warner recorded seven tackles (two solo) and an interception in Sunday's 36-9 win over the Giants.
ANALYSIS
Warner didn't post the gaudy tackle totals we saw over his first two contests, which was due in large part to the 49ers dominating the time of possession game (39:44 to 20:16). The 23-year-old did intercept his first pass of the season, which helped alleviate the below-average tackle total. Expect Warner to be atop the tackle sheet yet again when the Eagles come to town for Sunday Night Football in Week 4.

Josh Fathollahi observes that while the 49ers have made the necessary roster moves heading into Year 3 under Kyle Shanahan, the team's eventual record likely rests on Jimmy Garoppolo.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Warner was a revelation for the 49ers last season, filling in admirably for the released Reuben Foster. The 2018 third-round pick racked up 124 tackles (85 solo) with six passes defended over 16 games while taking over as the team's middle linebacker. This offseason, San Francisco signed Kwon Alexander to a large contract to take over at the Mike, but Warner will remain on the field for most situations playing alongside him at the Will position. The former may eat into the sophomore's tackle totals a bit, but Warner should still post IDP-relevant totals in 2019.
