Week 7: at Washington Redskins
FBG says: Good matchup. The San Francisco 49ers have dominated opponents en-route to a 5-0 start to the 2019 campaign, and their rushing attack has played a large role in closing out each victory along the way. Through 5 games, the 49ers average nearly 180 rushing yards-per-game thanks to an impressive committee of running backs. Since Tevin Coleman returned to action two weeks ago, he and Matt Breida have dominated the touches in the backfield. Breida has been uber impressive so far this season with nearly 6 yards-per-carry, and Coleman has been strong in his goal-line running back role since returning. Head coach Kyle Shannahan has designed one of the NFL's most powerful and productive rushing attacks for the 49ers, but it all works because of the team's strong offensive line. In the trenches, the 49ers' offensive line is rising up the ranks as one of the league's better run-blocking units. In week seven, they will be without starting tackles Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey, but their injury replacements, Justin Skule and Daniel Brunskill, have impressed in recent weeks. Expect another high-volume rushing day for the 49ers against the Washington Redskins' sub-par run defense. The Washington Redskins' run defense has faced a high volume of rush attempts through the first six weeks of the season, and they've allowed one of the highest levels of efficiency on the ground in the entire NFL. The Redskins have a strong group of interior defensive linemen, with DaRon Payne, Jonathan Allen, and Tim Settle all performing at an above-average level against the run. Unfortunately, this trio is unable to play together on the field in any viable defensive lineup. At linebacker, Cole Holcomb has been shockingly impressive, but after Holcomb, the production level drops significantly. Even Holcomb, who has done a good job filling running lanes for the Redskins, has struggled to finish tackles this season, a disturbing theme for Washington's defense. In the secondary, Landon Collins is making his presence felt in run-support. At safety, Collins leads the Redskins in tackles with 42 on the season, but he has also missed six additional tackles. Missed tackles have plagued the Redskins' run defense in the trenches, at linebacker, and in the secondary this season. Washington's schedule has been quite easy, compared to the rest of their schedule, with regards to the quality of run offenses they have faced thus far. Their defense exiting these six games with the 21st-ranked defense in yards-per-carry allowed is a major red flag. Expect the Redskins to struggle against San Francisco's highly-efficient and high-volume rushing attack in week seven.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 3 vs PIT (12 / 79 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Mostert mostly played on third downs and when San Francisco went to 11 personnel (i.e., one running back, three wide receivers, one tight end). Other than a well-blocked 19-yard run midway through the fourth quarter, his performance was lackluster at best, losing a fumble inside the red zone and nearly losing another -- on a dropped pitch, no less -- on the 49ers' first drive.
2019 Week 2 vs CIN (13 / 83 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 68 / 1 rec)
Mostert actually out-snapped starter Matt Breida against Cincinnati. On his receiving touchdown, which came on a deceptive, one-lineman screen pass, Mostert scored because he had three blockers against three defenders in front of him, and linebacker Preston Brown, who actually went mostly unblocked, gave a lackluster effort in his tackle attempt. Similarly, Mostert's 20-yard run in the third quarter resulted from a wide-open running lane off right tackle, as well as a feeble tackle attempt by cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. He even ran untouched for a 29-yard score that was nullified by penalty.
2019 Week 1 vs TB (9 / 40 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Mostert entered midway through the second quarter in place of an injured Tevin Coleman and immediately scored a touchdown...that was nullified by penalty. The running lane outside was so wide open that Mostert probably would have scored anyway, but Richie James couldn't help himself from grabbing a fistful of jersey. Late in the fourth quarter, Mostert provided a run that went a long way towards putting the game away. Running out of the I, Mostert took the handoff and ran off left tackle. About 10 yards downfield, he lowered his shoulder and ran over safety Darian Stewart before finally being tackled 8 yards later. To add insult to potential injury, Stewart was flagged for initiating with his helmet, so the play actually netted San Francisco 33 yards and a first down at the Tampa Bay 31-yard line.
