Week 12: vs Seattle Seahawks

All WR vs SEA

FBG says: Tough matchup. C.J. Beathard had the best outing of his young career against a reeling Giants defense his last game in Week 10, completing 76% of his passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns. Beathard padded his stats with a big 83-yard bomb to Marquise Goodwin, who was wide open on a blown coverage. Beathard also got his tight end involved here as Garrett Celek finished tied for the team lead in targets with six and a touchdown. Beathard did a good job at spreading the ball around, but a ton of his completions were for short yardage gains which helped him achieve that 76% completion rate. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk actually led the team in receptions with five as he was a dump off machine in this game while Carlos Hyde only caught two passes for six yards, his second-worst performance through the air this season. The 49ers offensive line has not done a great job in pass protection on the year, allowing 32 sacks which rank third-most in the league. They were back to full strength before the bye though and did not allow a single sack as Joe Staley returned to left tackle and Trent Brown shifted back to right tackle. This line will be under a ton of pressure this week though, as this Seahawks pass rush looked better during the second half of this season. Just one game after losing Richard Sherman, the Seahawks secondary took another huge blow as they have now learned that Kam Chancellor may be lost for the season due to a neck injury. Chancellor had been one of the best safeties in the league, and the Seahawks are now down two members of their famed Legion of Boom. Bradley McDougald will step in for Chancellor opposite Earl Thomas. McDougald played relatively well against the Falcons this past week, but he is definitely a downgrade from Chancellor. Jeremy Lane did not look good at all in his first start in relief of Sherman, however, it doesn't help that he saw a lot of Julio Jones in coverage. In the midst of all these injuries though, linebacker Earl Wagner is having one of his best seasons, particularly in pass coverage as he has looked elite all season long. The 49ers pose a minimal threat to the Seahawks defense, especially as Carlos Hyde should draw coverage by Wagner if he sneaks out of the backfield.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 10 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

With San Francisco focusing on the run and therefore leaning heavily on 21 personnel (i.e., two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end), Louis Murphy and Kendall Bourne saw the field ahead of Robinson for much of the first half. Robinson's only target came early in the second quarter lined up outside against Janoris Jenkins -- which seems to contradict the above 21-personnel hypothesis. Regardless, he beat Jenkins' zone coverage on a dig route and made a tough catch in the middle of the field.

2017 Week 9 vs ARI (8 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

It's not often that you see a receiver get eight targets, yet have so little opportunity to produce yardage from those targets. Officially, Robinson had only 51 air yards on those eight targets, but that number drops to 43 when you account for the fact that three of his incomplete "targets" weren't targets at all. Rather, they were sack-avoiding tosses in Robinson's general direction. Furthermore, the accuracy of two additional incomplete targets was ruined by C.J. Beathard getting hit as he threw the ball. Therefore, Robinson really only had one incomplete target. Of course that, too, wasn't his fault, as Beathard woefully underthrew a deep pass after Robinson had cleanly beaten Patrick Peterson's man-to-man coverage. It should be noted that Robinson moved into the slot after Trent Taylor got hurt at the end of the first half.

2017 Week 8 vs PHI (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

C.J. Beathard's first interception was the result of throwing low and behind Robinson on a quick slant. Despite playing most of (the quite lengthy) garbage time, Robinson's only other target was knocked away by cornerback Rasul Douglas on a go route down the left sideline. Robinson had half-a-step on Douglas and Beathard placed the pass accurately despite getting hit as he threw. It was simply a case of Douglas recovering and making a nice play on the ball.

2017 Week 6 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 66 / 1 rec)

Robinson had two of the 49ers' four longest gains despite playing only 21 percent of offensive snaps. Operating out of the inside in a trips right formation on 3rd-and-10, Robinson made a leaping catch for 21 yards after getting open on his deep out route between Washington's safety and Tampa-2 linebacker. That drive quickly ended in a punt, whereas Robinson's other big play capped off a late touchdown drive to bring San Francisco within two points at the two-minute warning. However, the 45-yard reception had less to do with Robinson than with a deft play call by Kyle Shanahan and a defensive miscue by cornerback Fabian Moreau. Reversing their typical alignments, Robinson was in slot right and Trent Taylor was outside right. Meanwhile, Moreau was lined up across from Taylor with cornerback Kendall Fuller across from Robinson. On the play, Taylor ran an inside slant (from the outside) while Robinson ran an out and up (from the inside). Fuller switched onto Taylor, but Moreau didn't switch onto Robinson, leaving him uncovered downfield for an easy pitch-and-catch touchdown.

2017 Week 4 vs ARI (12 / 3 / 52 / 0 rec)

Robinson's massive uptick in snaps resulted from Marquise Goodwin getting hurt near the end of the first quarter. His massive target haul was due to Patrick Peterson shadowing Pierre Garcon, particularly once Robinson took the field. His almost-hard-to-believe low catch rate represented the confluence of those two statements. Having hardly practiced or played together, RObinson and quarterback Brian Hoyer were rarely on the same page. On a couple of occassions, Hoyer's throws were too far in front of him because he doesn't have Goodwin's lightning fast speed. On a couple of others, Robinson either sat down in the soft spot of a zone when Hoyer thought he'd continue his route or vice versa. On a couple of eithers, Hoyer made a back-shoulder throw as Robinson continued his route upfield. As if to put an exclamation point on this frustration, Robinson dropped a 14-yard pass across the middle on the second play of overtime, and was never targeted again.
