Week 7: vs Los Angeles Rams
FBG says: Good matchup. C.J. Beathard had what may be his best game yet last week against the Packers on Monday night. Beathard may have only passed for 245 yards, but he had a couple long touchdown passes and was basically having his way with the Packers secondary when not leaning on his backfield. Beathard now has multiple passing touchdowns in every game, but he also has made his fair share of mistakes with seven turnovers in three starts. Marquise Goodwin had a coming out game of his season last week, hauling in four of five targets for 126 yards and two long touchdowns. Finally appearing to be healthy, it was encouraging to see Goodwin flash the explosiveness we came to expect last season. George Kittle had a down game last week now that Goodwin has come back into the picture, but he remains involved as he had equal targets as Goodwin but just could not get loose downfield. Pierre Garcon remains a fringe option in this offense. The Rams secondary struggled for the third straight game as they allowed Case Keenum to rack up over 300 yards, albeit most of which came in garbage time. The Rams cornerbacks allowed a few big plays to the outside receivers while letting Emmanuel Sanders have his way from the slot. They have now allowed multiple passing touchdowns in four straight games, giving up the second-most fantasy points per game in PPR formats to opposing wide receivers over that span. Both Marcus Peters and Troy Hill have struggled on the outside, with Hill allowing three of every four balls thrown his way to be caught with over 3.5 yards allowed per route covered. The Rams defensive line, however, has been quite effective against opposing quarterbacks despite racking up only a dozen sacks. They lead the league in pressures since Week 4, with Aaron Donald being a big part of that as he finished with 11 pressures last week. The 49ers have a stout offensive line that appears to be back to full health though, so they will have a good chance at fending of this fierce Rams pass rush. Both Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon look to have positive matchups here, especially when lined up against Hill who has really struggled in relief of Aqib Talib.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 2 vs DET (2 / 1 / 35 / 0 rec)
Pettis only had two targets despite playing eight out of every nine snaps because he had a hard time beating the man-to-man coverage. Of concern is that he was stifled by Teez Tabor and Nevin Lawson, not perennial Pro Bowler Darius Slay. Pettis' lone reception resulted from one of the few instances he defeated said coverage. It was a post-corner route that spun Tabor around when he broke outside, thereby creating several yards of separation.
2018 Week 1 vs MIN (5 / 2 / 61 / 1 rec)
As was telegraphed during San Francisco's third preseason game, Pettis assumed Marquise Goodwin's role when he left the game, up to and including being the lone wide receiver in 22 personnel formations (i.e., two running backs and two tight ends). The highlight reels will show his improvisational, acrobatic touchdown catch with the 49ers down 20-6 early in the third quarter, but the (other) hidden variable going forward is that Kyle Shanahan used Pettis for jet-sweep play action four times in the first half after not using Goodwin at all in that capacity.
