Week 3: at Seattle Seahawks

All RB vs SEA

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Carlos Hyde (14/34/0 rushing with 3/18/0 receiving) found the Panthers' defense a tougher nut to crack than L.A.'s was in Week One (23/88/2 rushing (and 1/5/0 receiving)) as did Shaun Draughn (9/21/0 rushing at Carolina, vs. 7/18/1 rushing with 2/18/0 receiving against the Rams). We'll see which version of the 49ers' rushing attack shows up to Seattle this weekend. Seattle limited Todd Gurley to 19/51/0 rushing and held L.A. to 25/64/0 as a team last weekend, after opening the year by holding Miami to 20/64/1 rusing in the season opener. Seattle is third in the NFL averaging 64 yards rushing allowed per game, and are third-least-generous to opposing running backs in fantasy points per game on average this season (10.9 per game). This is a tough unit to face. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs CAR (9 / 21 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Continuing the trend from Week 1, Draughn did not replace Carlos Hyde in passing situations (See "one target, zero receptions"). Practically the entire second half qualified as a passing situation, and yet Hyde was on the field more often. Used primarily as a runner, Draughn, like Hyde, faced an uphill battle with respect to finding open running lanes. His first two carries went for minus-five and minus-three yards, respectively. If not for a rare chasm opening in the middle of Carolina's run defense during an 18-yard carry during the second quarter, Draughn would have finished with minus-three yards on eight carries.

2016 Week 1 vs LA (7 / 18 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

A more important insight than Draughn's scoring was his usage pattern. He played on all downs, so he wasn't a third-down specialist. But he only played 21 of 81 snaps, so it's not like he's in any meaningfgul time-share with Carlos Hyde. The truth, as far as we can tell through one game, is that Draughn's role is to give Hyde a breather in their no-huddle offense. And these breathers don't have any rhyme or reason insofar as he doesn't come in for a whole drive or even for an entire series of downs. No, it's more like, "Does Hyde need a breather for a play or two? OK, send Draughn out there." With this being the case, Draughn didn't help his cause when he lost a fumble in the midst of a late-half drive that had reached Rams territory.
