Mike LaFleur is in his fourth season with the 49ers and third as the team's passing game coordinator. He previously served as the team's wide receivers/passing game coordinator in 2018 and wide receivers/passing game specialist in 2017.
In 2019, the 49ers had 13 different players with at least one touchdown reception on the season, which tied the NFL record for the most players with a touchdown reception in a single season. TE George Kittle's game continued to improve as he was named Associated Press First-Team All-Pro, PFWA All-NFL and All-NFC and was selected as a starter in the Pro Bowl. Kittle led the team with 85 receptions for 1,053 yards and five touchdowns. He became just the fifth player in franchise history, and the first tight end, to have multiple 1,000-yard seasons, joining WR Jerry Rice (12), WR Terrell Owens (5), WR Anquan Boldin (2) and WR John Taylor (2). Rookie WR Deebo Samuel registered 57 receptions for 802 yards and three touchdowns while also adding 14 carries for 159 yards (11.4 average) and three touchdowns. His 57 receptions and 802 receiving yards each ranked second among all rookies in franchise history. WR Kendrick Bourne tallied 30 receptions for 358 yards and a career-high five touchdowns.
