News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): Britt becomes the #1 receiver for the Rams with Brian Quick out for the year, but he's still just a desperation play.

Week 9: at San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Austin Davis threw 21/42 for 236 yards, one TD and one interception vs. San Francisco three weeks ago, and took five sacks for -20 yards. Since then, he's lost promising wideout Brian Quick and starting LT Jake Long for the season. Given he took five sacks with Long in the saddle three weeks ago, this matchup looks grim for Davis. He was rocked for seven sacks and -44 yards at Kansas City last week, and travels to San Francisco for this game. 15/25 for 160 yards, one TD and one interception were his totals at Kansas City last week. Kenny Britt (five targets for 2/52/0 receiving) and Stedman Bailey (three for 2/33/0) were Davis top receivers last week - Lance Kendricks handled the score with one target for 1/1/1. Yawn. The 49ers have allowed an average of 221.1 net passing yards per game this year (eighth in the NFL), with 13 passing scores offset by seven interceptions (tied for 13th in the NFL), and 12 sacks generated to date (23rd in the NFL). Last time around the block, Peyton Manning blasted this group for 22/26 yielding 318 net yards, four TDs and zero interceptions - but Austin Davis is no Peyton Manning. Advantage, San Francisco.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs SF (6 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)

Britt's biggest play was a deep comeback route for 18 yards. He had 2 other receptions, but wasn't able to get open deep or challenge the 49ers on a consistent basis, which led to a poor game. Britt never challeneged the 49ers vertically, and isn't taking advantage of the double teams that Quick is drawing.

2014 Week 7 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 4 / 0 rec)

Britt was injured early on, but came back on the field to convert a big 3rd down against Sherman. But aside from that, he did nothing, finishing with a paltry 2 catches for 4 yards. The gameplan wasn't there for Britt, Quick and Cook, as the Rams used the three as decoys, setting up the underneath stuff for most of the game, and Britt's numbers suffered.

2014 Week 8 vs KC (5 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)

Britt had a huge play on the first drive. Britt was lined up in a 3 wr bunch formation, started off running inside, then cut out toward the sideline on a deep route. Austin Davis hit him in stride with a perfect 43 yard pass. On the next possession, Britt ran deep again and Davis threw to him, but it was intercepted. It was a poor decision to throw towards Britt as he had double coverage. After that, the Chiefs brought the house, and the long developing routes kept Britt from making any further impact, even after Quick left the game with an injury. If Quick misses significant time, however, Britt will become Quick's primary WR. This could be a lucrative fantasy position, especially against poor defenses.
