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 5 vs ARI (8 / 7 / 61 / 1 rec)
Despite San Francisco trailing for nearly the entire game, Taylor only saw a modest increase from his usual snap rate because, despite the prolonged deficit, Kyle Shanahan decided to remain in 21 personnel -- two running backs and one tight end -- until the fourth quarter. Indeed, six of Taylor's eight targets came during that stanza and another came at the end of the third quarter. Almost all of these targets were of the "sit down in the soft spot of a zone" variety, though Taylor's touchdown was a notable exception. On the play, he was lined up at the lead position of a rare, four-receiver diamond formation. His job was to block for Raheem Mostert, who was in the trailing position, on a bubble screen. However, Arizona sniffed it out, and so Taylor had to improvise. After releasing from his block, he faked inside and made a sharp cut to the outside, thereby getting wide open for the score.
2018 Week 3 vs KC (4 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Taylor once again played about 40 percent of snaps because the 49ers spent most of the game using two running backs in the formation. All three of his targets came in the second quarter, none of which gained more than 10 yards, and two of which were dumpoffs in desperate down-and-distance situations. Taylor's only target -- and reception -- that came in the normal flow in the game was a 10-yard catch on a shallow cross, in which he found a hole in Kansas City's underneath zone coverage.
2018 Week 2 vs DET (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Taylor was a non-factor mainly due to San Francisco going heavy on two-tight end personnel groups. His first target -- on a quick out route into the left flat -- was broken up by a quickly closing Quandre Diggs. His second target -- on a 10-yard out route from the slot on 3rd-and-7 -- was also broken up by the defender, but this was due to a throw that was high and inside when it needed to be low and outside.
2018 Week 1 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
As is to be expected when an offense is trailing the entire game, Taylor played more snaps than usual. Performance-wise, he didn't do much outside of a couple of well-designed pass plays that found him open in space thanks to defensive indifference. Usage-wise, however, Kyle Shanahan seemed to send him out wide in the formation (i.e., rather than in the slot) more than he did last season.
