From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Garcon can still play, but he's going to held back by Brian Hoyer and #1 corners. This week brings Trumaine Johnson and Hoyer is still the quarterback. Maybe CJ Beathard could make it better but don't hold your breath.

Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams

All WR vs LAR

FBG says: Bad matchup. The 49ers struggled again last week behind only 99 passing yards from Brian Hoyer. Their offense as a whole was atrocious outside of Carlos Hyde, who finished tied with the most targets (6) on the team. Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin finished with three receptions and 26 yards apiece. Brian Hoyer did not complete a single pass beyond 15 yards, otherwise, he may have thrown for more than only one interception in what was a very tough matchup against the Seahawks. This week's matchup only slightly improves as Hoyer and company take on a Rams secondary that has yet to allow over 200 passing yards this season against the Colts and Redskins. Safety Lamarcus Joyner has been playing very well this season, and cornerback Trumaine Johnson absolutely smothered Terrelle Pryor last week, holding him to only two receptions on four targets for 31 yards. Johnson had to be helped off in the fourth quarter with an apparent leg injury, but he was not listed on the team's Monday injury report. The Rams other starting running back Kayvon Webster missed last week with a shoulder injury, but he was practicing last Friday, so he could suit up this week. The 49ers passing offense is not one you want to be invested in, particularly this week as their receivers simply will not match up with the talent in this Rams secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

Despite not being shadowed by Richard Sherman, Garcon didn't see his first target until midway through the second quarter. That said, all three of Garcon's receptions did come with Sherman in primary coverage -- the problem is that, on these plays, Sherman was fulfilling his duties as a Cover-3 zone cornerback, not a man-to-man lockdown cornerback on these plays. On each, Sherman backed off into his deep-third responsibility, thereby allowing Garcon to catch the ball -- and Hoyer to deliver said ball -- in front of him.

2017 Week 1 vs CAR (10 / 6 / 81 / 0 rec)

Garcon got open easily all day and also added value with hard-nosed running after the catch. With better pass-blocking, he could have had 8 or 9 catches and 100 yards receiving. Garcon didn't shy after from tacklers or have any problems creating separation off of the line. He broke a tackle for a long gain on a fourth down reception and is clearly the primary option in the passing game.
