General News (Sat Sep 14): played 60 snaps in Week 1 compared to two for Dante Pettis. The disparity won't be as great against the Bengals, according to SFChronicle.com's Eric Branch. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Samuel received too much work after the second-round pick had three catches for 19 yards, lost a fumble and had a false-start penalty. "I think he learned what the NFL is like," Shanahan said. "I think it was our fault for playing him too much. We should've had Dante in for more and taken those reps down a little bit. But that's the standard in this league and how hard you have to go and how every play matters. I think he learned that. There's some good learning examples in that game. He did some good things for us, but he also played like a rookie at times, too."

Week 2: at Cincinnati Bengals

All WR vs CIN

FBG says: Good matchup. Jimmy Garoppolo returned to action after a 12-month recovery, and didn't inspire much confidence in doing so. He followed up a shaky preseason with a thoroughly ineffective opener, posting just 6.1 yards per attempt and a single touchdown. Garoppolo struggled to connect consistently with any of his wideouts; only tight end George Kittle topped 40 yards. To be fair, Garoppolo did have two touchdown passes negated by penalties. He's clearly still working off rust, but his floor and ceiling both remain mysterious. With no track record to speak of, there is no clear set of expectations. Without question, though, he'll need his playmakers to step up if he's to find any 2019 success. The trio of Deebo Samuel, Marquise Goodwin, and Dante Pettis failed to create much separation - and Garoppolo misfired several times that they did. At least Kittle carried over He caught 8 of his 10 targets, and both those negated touchdown throws had gone to him. Garoppolo may still be an unwritten book, but Kittle is clearly gifted enough to spin fantasy gold regardless. It's surprising how beatable the Bengals pass defense has been since last season. The team boasts a solid set of starting cornerbacks in William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick, after all. And the pass rush, which took down Russell Wilson on 4 of his 24 dropbacks, remains underrated. Still, taken as a whole, this is one football's least cohesive secondaries, and receivers have little trouble splitting them down the field. Wilson posted a prolific 9.8 yards per attempt in Week 1, hitting on most of his downfield throws with relative ease. Most egregious was Tyler Lockett's 44-yard touchdown, on which the slot receiver jogged through an unmanned deep secondary and into the end zone. Last year, these Bengals allowed the league's fourth-most net yards per attempt and third-highest touchdown rate, and this year's iteration looks no different. Jackson and Kirkpatrick can win matchups on the outside, but the holes elsewhere are easy for offenses to exploit.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs TB (3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)

Samuel got the somewhat-surprising start and played nearly 90 percent of snaps. His three targets were a potpourri of good and bad. Among the good were a great hands catch on a slant and an elusive end-around shovel pass that was nullified by penalty. On the negative side, Samuel fumbled away a sure-fire, go-ahead field goal with 20 seconds left in the first half.
