Week 14: at New Orleans Saints - $4900

All WR vs NO

FBG says: Tough matchup. As expected, the 49ers' run-dominant approach severely handcuffs the upside of its passing game. Jimmy Garoppolo has been passable as a Super Bowl-contending quarterback, completing 69% of his throws in full-on game manager mode. He's only topped 300 yards twice, though, with both coming against the Cardinals' awful pass defense. Through 12 games, those 2 matchups have accounted for 26% of his yardage and 38% of his touchdowns. There's some truly explosive talent mixed into this attack, particularly on the inside of the formation. Tight end George Kittle remains a matchup-proof fantasy star, and rookie slot man Deebo Samuel continues to make at least two or three splash plays a week. He put up 112 and 134 yards in Weeks 10 and 11, then caught long touchdowns in each of the last two. Emmanuel Sanders looms, as well, even though Samuel has cut deeply into his role. But without consistent volume in a conservative attack, their expectations need to be held in check. Game flow and gameplan will tell the tale; it's rare to see two or more erupt in the same week. The New Orleans pass defense is generally a strong one, boasting a true shutdown cornerback and a handful of rising stars around him. Last week, they recorded 9 sacks and allowed Matt Ryan just 6.2 yards per attempt. The Saints have allowed big raw yardage in a handful of games, but much of it has been boosted by garbage time. And with top cornerback Marshon Lattimore back in the lineup, this is again a daunting matchup for opponents' No. 1 wideouts. Lattimore has done fantastic recent work against the likes of Amari Cooper (48 yards), D.J. Chark (43), and Mike Evans (69 over 2 games). On the other side, Eli Apple is fresh off one of his worst games as a pro, losing repeatedly to the Falcons' Calvin Ridley. It's unclear just how much impact they'll have Sunday, though, as the 49ers work the slots much more often than the boundaries. The burden will be on safeties Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell to control the seams and keep Jimmy Garoppolo's slot targets from producing after the catch.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 13 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec - 5.7 points, $4600)

Bourne extended San Francisco's scoring drive to open the game with a third-down, 30-yard catch and run. It was actually the result of a blown coverage by Marcus Peters, however. It's hard to know what Peters was supposed to do on the play, but whatever it was, it wasn't crashing so far inside that you completely vacate the short left zone for which you're solely responsible.

2019 Week 11 vs ARI (6 / 4 / 31 / 1 rec - 11.1 points, $4800)

Bourne's second target nearly produced a carbon copy of the "while wide open, drop a slightly high throw and tip it to the defender for an interception" play that he pulled off against Seattle last week. He redeemed himself two targets later by badly beating cornerback Byron Murphy, Jr., on a quick slant at the goal line for a touchdown that gave the 49ers a fourth quarter lead.

2019 Week 10 vs SEA (8 / 4 / 42 / 1 rec - 14.2 points, $4800)

Bourne started off the game well, scoring a first-quarter touchdown on a quick slant in the red zone against slot cornerback Jamar Taylor. After Emmanuel Sanders got hurt, Bourne stepped into an expanded role, playing nearly ever snap. Unfortunately, the only two things of note that Bourne did from there were absolute killers. First, he somehow volleyball-set a wide-open deep gain for San Francisco into an easy interception for Seattle. Then, late in the fourth quarter, Bourne dropped what would have been a carbon copy of his previoius touchdown. Making that wide-open catch would have (at the very least) set the 49ers up with 1st-and-goal inside the 10-yard line.

2019 Week 7 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 69 / 0 rec - 8.4 points, $4500)

Bourne took over Marquise Goodwin's role in the offense after Goodwin got hurt on San Francisco's first drive. This role was abundantly clear on Bourne's three receptions, as all three involved routes typically run by Goodwin. The first was a deep out route from the left slot that gained 28 yards against safety Landon Collins. Both of Bourne's other catches came on backside crossing routes, but the last one was the same play Goodwin scored a touchdwn on against Cincinnati in Week 2. Namely, Bourne motioned tight to the line as if he was going to block, then navigated through the sea of humanity while the backfield executed a play-action fake, and then found himself wide open deep downfield. It would have been a touchdown if not for the tempestuous conditions producing an underthrow by Jimmy Garoppolo.
