Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams

All RB vs LAR

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Carlos Hyde had his way with a stout Seahawks rushing defense last week, rambling off 124 rushing yards on 15 carries, including a 61-yard scamper that definitely padded his overall yardage total. Even without that long carry, Hyde was averaging over four yards per attempt against a defense that allowed only 3.4 yards per attempt last season. Hyde routinely shed tacklers and showed his elusiveness throughout the day while serving as a true dual-threat option due to his contributions in the receiving game. The 49ers offensive line turned in a great performance here also, with both tackles providing excellent run blocking. Left tackle Joe Staley, in particular, provided the block that set up Hyde's 61-yard run, while right tackle Trent Brown is really coming on strong in his third NFL season, playing well in the first two games this year. The Rams front seven has been a solid group after ranking second in rushing defense in 2016, but they really struggled last week against a mediocre Redskins rushing offense even with Aaron Donald's return in this game after missing the season opener. The Rams allowed the trio of Redskins backs to rush for a whopping 222 yards and two touchdowns, good for just over 6.1 yards per carry. While the interior of their defensive line has played solid, the Rams linebackers had a very tough time last week missing tackles left and right. Their poor performance against the run downgrades the Rams slightly, but with some slightly improved linebacker play, this unit has what it takes to be very tough on the run.
