Week 9: vs St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Colin Kaepernick threw 24/39 for 263 yards passing, one TD and one interception at Denver prior to the 49ers bye, but he was sacked six times for -53 yards and eventually exited early during a 17-42 beat down in Mile High Stadium. Two games ago, he threw 22/35 for 343 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions (with zero sacks taken) at St. Louis - and here is the same opponent coming to San Francisco after a week' rest for the 49ers! This matchup looks favorable for the 49ers' passing attack. Last time around the block, the 49ers receivers shared around the TDs, with nine targets for 7/94/1 receiving flowing to Anquan Boldin; one for 1/80/1 going to Brandon Lloyd; and eight for 3/49/1 landing in Michael Crabtree's hands - only Steve Johnson (six for 5/53/0) among the lead wide receivers missed out on the scoring bonanza. The Rams' pass D coughed up 24/28 for 218 net yards passing to Alex Smith last week (zero TDs or interceptions, with two sacks for -8 yards taken). Two games ago, Russell Wilson bombed them for 23/36 yielding 292 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with three sacks taken for -21 yards. To date St. Louis has allowed 11 passing scores vs. just three interceptions (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) and only six sacks (dead last) generated. This s not a feared pass D, folks. Advantage, San Francisco.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs STL (6 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)

Johnson picked up 13 yards on a slant on the 49ers first drive but didn't see another target until the third quarter. He was used extensively in the third quarter on short routes, and broke a tackle in flats for a nine yard gain on one of those targets. His 20 yard reception came on a good hands catch on a high pass over the middle from Kaepernick. Johnson left the game in the 4th quarter after being injured recovering an onside kick. He was able to leave under his own power.

2014 Week 7 vs DEN (7 / 5 / 79 / 1 rec)

On a day when several of the receivers were inconsistent, Johnson was pretty outstanding. On his first catch he beat corner on a post then broke a tackle to turn it into a 31 yard gain. He had a 16 yard gain to start the next drive, and finished the drive as well. His 25 yard reception was a sliding catch at the 4 yard line on a bullet from Kaepernick. On the next play he sprinted across the back of the end zone and Kaepernick found him for the score. Johnson was by far the most reliable option and also made a couple of outstanding plays.


Latest News

49ers | Stevie Johnson very productive (Fri Oct 24, 02:39 PM) - San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson has played only 20 percent of the snaps in the last month, but he's been the team's most effective receiver in that time. WR Brandon Lloyd has played 40 percent of the offensive snaps, but QB Colin Kaepernick has a passer rating of 127.8 on passes to Johnson and just 87.8 to Lloyd.

Our View: Both of them are capping the Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree's weekly value without creating much of their own. It is a help for Colin Kaepernick's value as a passer.
