Week 5: at New York Giants

All RB vs NYG

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Carlos Hyde (8/20/0 rushing with 1/2/0 receiving last week vs. Green Bay) is (justifiably) frustrated with the state of the 49ers offense, specifically the 49ers' passing attack. 'They brought the safeties down, played a zero look a lot,' Hyde said after the 3-17 loss to Green Bay. 'They brought extra defenders in the box. It's hard to run against eight or nine guys in the box.' Defenses stack the box when they don't fear your passing game, and nobody has a reason to fear Colin Kaepernick right now. The Giants actually have the best run D in the NFL after four games, currently averaging 69.8 yards rushing allowed with just two rushing scores surrendered. Buffalo was limited to 24/55/0 rushing last week; the Giants' rush D allowed 22/56/2 to Atlanta two games ago. This is a bad matchup for Hyde and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs GB (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Bush was barely used in a game set up perfectly for his situational personnel package, and with a quarterback obsessed with throwing short passes. That said, his 2 fourth-quarter targets could have ended up being productive if not for Kaepernick throwing the ball at Bush's feet. Also, Bush's lone carry came on the coaching staff's most bizarre play-call of the game: a 3rd-and-11 inside handoff.

2015 Week 1 vs MIN (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Bush didn't do much against the Vikings, playing only 8 snaps, running 4 routes, carrying twice, and being targeted once before leaving the game with a calf strain midway through the first quarter. The good news, however, is threefold. First, his injury appears to be minor, so he won't be missing many, if any, games. Second, Bush's 8 snaps were out of a possible 16 plays at the time of his exit, so there's no question that he's San Francisco's primary running back in passing situations when healthy. Finally, while one of his carries produced an injury, the other produced a highlight reminder of Bush's athleticism. On San Francisco's fourth play of the game, Bush took the handoff on a read-option play that Minnesota initially defended well. He then eluded a tackle in the backfield, stiff-armed safety Andrew Sendejo (also in the backfield), and accelerated around right end for 8 yards.
