Week 2: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All RB vs TB

FBG says: Good matchup. Once considered a scatback who couldn't handle an early-down load, Christian McCaffrey has left any running-game doubts in the dust. After averaging 2.4 yards per rush over his first 8 NFL games, he's produced 5.0 over his last 25. He was unstoppable last Sunday, gashing the Rams for 6.7 en route to 128 on the day. He broke off runs of 23, 18, 17, and 12 yards among his 19 attempts, simply erupting through holes and shaking would-be tacklers in the open field. McCaffrey has fine-tuned his body for the rigors of the NFL, and he's proven himself a playmaker running both inside and outside. Quarterback Cam Newton doesn't run as often as he used to but remains difficult to square up with defensively. And both will continue to benefit from running behind a strong run-blocking line. Led by center Matt Paradis and right guard Trai Turner, this is a group adept at both mauling in the trenches and clearing paths on the second level. Promising young nose tackle Vita Vea will provide a challenge Sunday, but the unit did a fine job against the game's best, Aaron Donald, in Week 1. For the most part, the Tampa Bay run defense impressed in Week 1. Led by a dominant front line, the team stifled Kyle Shanahan's three-headed attack - Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida, and Raheem Mostert totaled just 100 yards over 30 attempts. There were a few chunk plays, but beyond their 3 longest runs, the 49ers averaged just 1.9 per carry. Second-year tackle Vita Vea was a terror, consistently tying up blockers on the interior and allowing the linebackers to roam. Lavonte David and Shaquil Barrett were especially active on the second level, and safety Jordan Whitehead (seven solo tackles) was helpful in the box Combined with rookie Devin White, there's plenty of playmaking in this unit. One week doesn't quite wash away the rough memories of 2018 where they allowed 4.7 yards-per-carry, but it was an eye-opening start to the season.
