Week 14: at San Francisco 49ers
All RB vs SF
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Well, the Bryce Petty era at quarterback has officially started in New York - he averages a 'scintillating' 105.6 yards passing per game so far, friends. Look for Matt Forte and Bilal Powell to face stacked boxes for the rest of the season - we'll see if the 49ers can somehow exploit this angle.
Remember, though, that San Francisco has been a doormat for almost every running back that has faced them - Jordan Howard plowed this team under last week with 32/1178/3 (Chicago posted 40/142/3 rushing as a team), even while the Chicago passing game was limited; Miami was curtailed to 26/95/1 rushing two games ago by San Francisco, but they were missing their starting center and both starting offensive tackles at the time. To date, the 49ers average a horrendous 169.3 rushing yards allowed per game (32nd in the NFL) with a league-worst 17 rushing scores given out. From Week 10 to Week 13 of regular season (the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on byes during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), San Francisco averages 24.2 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (fourth-most in the NFL).
This is a good matchup for the Jets' backs, but they have a weak passing offense which may limit the upside for Forte and Powell this weekend.
