Can someone explain this to me?  Is Buckner playing a DT or DL spot in their 4-3?  If Bosa is healthy, will he not be a starter with Buckner and Ford ahead of him?  Are all 3 startable DLs?

My guess is that Buckner will kick inside and they will have Ford, Buckner, and Bosa all on the field most of the time.

I just see all ranked very highly on various IDP sites.  Could all 3 conceivably be fantasy relevant DLs?

Assuming they are all healthy I would say they all have potential to be relevant.  Unfortunately both Ford and Bosa are not starting off well in the health department.  I would probably have Ford as the most likely to bust out of the three because his success has been as an OLB in a 3-4.  Not sure if he can hold up as a 4-3 DE.   I would have Buckner as the safest of the three because he has proven he can do it in a similar role.  Bosa is the question.  Is he really better than his brother?  Can he stay healthy?  I think if he stays healthy he will be elite.

What I've seen is Sheldon Day at Nose, Buckner remaining at undertackle, Bosa at end, and Ford at LEO.  I think it's plausible all three are relevant.  Ford's never been a high-tackle guy, so I've been shopping him where I have him rostered.
