The simplest way is just to add 49 (the number of days) to the value in A1.

=SUM(A1+49)

Yes, you can write
=SUM(A1+49)
in cell A2.

You can drag the formula to A3,A4,.. and onwards.

or write
=SUM(A2+49)
in cell A3

=SUM(A3+49)
in cell A4 .. and onwards

SUM function is unnecessary here, all you need is this formula in A2 copied down

=A1+49
