Week 3: at Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Through two games this season, Frank Gore has 29/126/1 rushing with two targets for 2/12/0 receiving, while Carlos Hyde has handled 11/50/1 rushing and seen two targets for 1/5/0 receiving. Last week, Gore was featured more prominently than in Week 1, with 13/63/1 rushing and 2/12/0 receiving, while Hyde handled 4/0/0 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving during the game. Gore is still the lead back in San Francisco, but he's not approached 20 touches in a game just yet. The Cardinals were first in the NFL last season allowing an average of 84.4 yards rushing per game, and were second in the NFL with just five rushing scores surrendered over 16 games. They continued with that level of play in Week 1 2014, holding the Chargers to 24/52/1 rushing on Monday Night Football. In Week 2, the Giants managed 27/81/0 rushing vs. Arizona - they average 66.5 yards rushing allowed per game through two games this season, third place among the top ten teams in the league in this category. Gore is effective when he handles the football, but he isn't getting enough touches to be an elite fantasy back currently. Also, he faces one of the best defensive fronts in football this week - advantage, Arizona.
