Week 7: at Washington Redskins

All QB vs WAS

FBG says: Good matchup. The 49ers' passing attack has been one of the NFL's lowest-volume units, in large part thanks to their dominance over opponents. In the midst of a 5-0 start, the 49ers have spent most of their 2019 campaign playing with a lead, and subsequently trying to kill the clock with their exceptional running game. However, when Kyle Shannahan asks quarterback Jimmy Garropolo to air it out, one target stands out above the rest: tight end George Kittle. Kittle has more than twice as many receptions as any other player on the 49ers' roster, and he is arguably the most reliable producer at his position this year. At wide receiver, Dante Pettis has seen his role in San Francisco's offense grow in recent weeks. Pettis' snap count has gradually risen over the last three weeks, and last week he recorded a season-high six targets against the Los Angeles Rams. The talent is undeniable with Pettis, but converting that talent into on-field production has yet to follow suit. The increased rate of involvement for Dante Pettis gives reason to believe he may break out as the top wide receiver in San Francisco's offense sooner rather than later. The 49ers also heavily utilize their running backs in the passing game, with both Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman commanding at least three targets in week six. San Francisco's offensive line is a bit banged up, missing star linemen Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey, but their replacements have held their own in the trenches. Jimmy Garoppolo has been one of the NFL's least-pressured quarterbacks throughout the first five games of 2019. Head coach Kyle Shannahan has brilliantly designed an offense that utilizes every eligible receiver on the field, from the fullback to the wide receivers. The Washington Redskins' pass defense has been miserable to start the 2019 season. Even against a weak schedule, the Redskins rank towards the bottom of the NFL in yards allowed, touchdowns allowed, and net-yards-allowed-per-pass. The struggles for the Redskins start up front, where they struggle to generate any pressure on opposing quarterbacks. On the edge, Matt Ioannidis and Ryan Kerrigan have been acceptable, but neither has tallied more than three sacks through the first six games of the season. Then, at linebacker, the Redskins lack any above-average coverage players. Jon Bostic rarely leaves the field for Washington, but he is one of the team's worst pass defenders. In the secondary, father time appears to have caught up to Josh Norman in 2019. Norman has already allowed five touchdowns in six games this season, the second-highest total for any season in his career. During the offseason, the Redskins signed Landon Collins to a record-setting contract with the hope that he would shore up their secondary following the departure of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Unfortunately, Collins has failed to make an impact defending the pass to this point in the season, and the schedule only gets tougher from here. Considering the Redskins have trailed for the majority of the 2019 season, they have faced very few high-volume passing attacks. The 49ers have favored a run-heavy approach to start the 2019 season, and the Redskins are unlikely to force them out of it by taking a significant lead here in week seven. Expect another relatively low-volume passing game for the 49ers with impressive levels of efficiency against a weak Washington pass defense.
