Week 15: vs Atlanta Falcons
FBG says: Great matchup. For the most part, Jimmy Garoppolo is the relatively low-impact caretaker of a run-dominant Super Bowl contender. He's averaging a modest 250 yards a game, and much of his fantasy value has been dependent on a high touchdown rate. Still, he's shown the ability to keep pace in a few recent shootouts, posting lines of 317, 424, and 329 yards - and 4 scores in each game. Garoppolo doesn't boast special arm talent, and he's still not much of a downfield passer. But he's now armed with a handful of gifted playmaking talents that excel in the slots and seams. George Kittle continues to look like a Travis Kelce clone, winning on all levels of the field and extending plays with sheer strength and will. His game-turning, 39-yard catch late in last week's game was a perfect snapshot of that. He's flanked by a pair of dynamic wideouts in Emmanuel Sanders, who woke up last week for 157 yards and a wild touchdown, and explosive rookie Deebo Samuel. With his stout build and open-field abilities, Samuel is essentially a running back playing wideout, and he's now creating impact plays on a weekly basis. He's topped 75 yards in 3 of his last 5 games and has seemingly jumped Sanders, if only by a bit, atop the pecking order. All in all, this pass game is hard to trust for volume, and game flow sometimes robs them of fantasy opportunity. But there's individual upside all over this unit, and they could hardly ask for a better matchup than the slot-deficient Falcons. Kittle, Samuel, and Sanders are all set up for success against Atlanta's shallow secondary. The Falcons pass defense has taken small steps forward, but remains one of football's leakiest units. They're giving up a robust 7.9 yards per attempt and 271 a game, and 6 of their 13 opponents have topped 300. Some of those who fell short, like Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins, simply didn't need to throw much in big victories. If nothing else, they've benefited of late from the midseason turnaround in top cornerback Desmond Trufant. He's been instrumental in limiting the likes of Michael Thomas (48 yards), Mike Evans (50), and Curtis Samuel (25). But while outside receivers have seen a dip, it's been open season against the rest of this secondary. Tight ends and slot receivers continue to feast in this matchup, as seen in recent matchups with Chris Godwin (7 for 184 and 2 touchdowns), Tyler Lockett (6 for 100), and Jared Cook (9 for 159 over 2 games). It makes for a great outlook for Jimmy Garoppolo, who leans heavily on the explosive George Kittle and his slot playmakers. That effectively works against the Falcons' only real point of strength - Trufant on the outside - and sets up Garoppolo for one of his best matchups of the season.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 7 vs WAS (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Goodwin dropped a pass and then had to leave the game a few plays later due to a possible concussion -- all on San Francisco's first drive.
2019 Week 6 vs LAR (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Goodwin's most notable play was a wide open deep drop to start the second quarter. He went in motion across the formation and ran a wheel route down the left sideline -- completely uncovered. Linebacker Dante Fowler tried to catch up with him, but Goodwin was already long gone. Jimmy Garoppolo underthrew the pass, which caused Goodwin to have to stop to make the catch, but the ball did hit him right in the breadbasket. This was an especially untimely drop, as Garoppolo threw an interception two plays later.
2019 Week 5 vs CLE (4 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec, 1 / 15 / 0 rush)
Despite starting and playing over 60 percent of snaps, Goodwin didn't see his first target until early in the second half. And in a span of five plays, he produced his entire receiving output for the night. His two biggest gains, indeed two of the 49ers' three-biggest pass plays of the game, involved attacking the coverage of injury-replacement backup cornerback T.J. Carrie.
2019 Week 3 vs PIT (2 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Goodwin started and played the most snaps in San Francisco's five-man wide receiver committee, but he largely played a decoy role in this game. Several of his teammates receptions came on plays where he cleared out a zone and they ran into it wide open behind him. His personal best on the day, a 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter, came on a deep out route between two levels of Pittsburgh's zone coverage.
2019 Week 2 vs CIN (3 / 3 / 77 / 1 rec)
Goodwin started once again, but ceded a higher percentage of snaps to San Francisco's backups than he did in Week 1. He was wide open on both of his long receptions, though one required enduring a hard hit from safety Jesse Bates III to hold onto the ball. On the other, his touchdown on San Francisco's first drive, Goodwin didn't have a Bengals defender within 15 yards of him in any direction when he caught the ball at Cincinnati's 15-yard line. This was a result of one of Kyle Shanahan's signiature play, called "receiver gets lost in the sea of scrimmage-line humanity on a play action; then emerges wide open on the other side of the field.
2019 Week 1 vs TB (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Goodwin's only catch of the game could have gained much more yardage if not for Jimmy Garoppolo throwing it slightly behind him on a wide open quick slant. The only other thing of note from Goodwin's performance was drawing a pass interference penalty on third down to extend a second quarter scoring drive.

Jones (ankle), TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder), WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and CB Richard Sherman (knee) were able to practice in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.
