General News (Wed Jan 15): underwent a fifth surgery on Jan. 2, which he hopes will be the final surgery on his ailing foot.

Week 20: vs Green Bay Packers

All WR vs GB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The San Francisco 49ers' divisional-round game against the Minnesota Vikings was another low-volume day for Jimmy Garoppolo and the team's passing attack. On the day, Garoppolo only attempted 19 passes, an incredibly low total that aligns closely with the team's season-long offensive fingerprint. San Francisco's passing game was the 4th-lowest volume unit in the league, posting a mediocre 28-to-13 touchdown-to-interception ratio, but an impressive 7.4 net yards per attempt, which was good for 3rd in the league. Last weekend's distribution of targets closely resembled the season-long trends for 49ers' pass-catchers. Tight end George Kittle remains one of the premier players at his position, and he is the team's number-one option through the air. Them, out wide, Deebo Samuel and Emmanuel Sanders are both strong secondary options for Jimmy Garoppolo. Samuel, specifically, is an electric playmaker after the catch, and the 49ers make a concerted effort to get him the ball in space. On the other hand, Sanders is a refined route-runner who makes a living by beating defensive backs thanks to his attention to detail. Overall, Jimmy Garoppolo's erratic performance, coupled with typically low volume through the air for the unit, makes this passing attack a highly-volatile unit overall. Green Bay's pass defense allowed mediocre efficiency totals through the air, but much like their offense, an astounding touchdown-to-interception ratio salvaged strong overall numbers against opposing passing attacks this year. The Packers defended the 18th-most passing attempts, allowing middle-of-the-pack yardage totals on the 18th-ranked net yards per attempt mark in the league. Along their defensive line, the Packers field three top-flight pass-rushers. Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith combined for 25.5 sacks during the regular season off the edge. In between them, Kenny Clark is one of the league's best interior pass-rushers, and he posted six sacks of his own this year. The weakness of this defense in coverage is at the second level, where the Packers have a notable lack of capable pass-defenders. This void in the defense helped enable 4 different opposing tight ends to record at least 6 receptions for 84 yards through the air this season, including George Kittle, who went for 129 yards and a score on 6 receptions against Green Bay in Week 12. The Packers' defensive backfield, however, is one of the league's strongest. At cornerback, Tramon Williams and Jaire Alexander are both top-end pass-defenders, and at safety Adrian Amos has proven to be an elite offseason acquisition. Overall, this unit's strengths in the trenches and in the secondary help to mask the weakness at linebacker, salvaging league-average totals against the pass. This weekend, should the 49ers rely on a pass-heavy gameplan, their efficient passing offense should look to focus on exploiting the weak link in Green Bay's defense. In total, this grades as a neutral matchup for the San Francisco passing attack.
