Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs ARI (8 / 7 / 61 / 1 rec)

Despite San Francisco trailing for nearly the entire game, Taylor only saw a modest increase from his usual snap rate because, despite the prolonged deficit, Kyle Shanahan decided to remain in 21 personnel -- two running backs and one tight end -- until the fourth quarter. Indeed, six of Taylor's eight targets came during that stanza and another came at the end of the third quarter. Almost all of these targets were of the "sit down in the soft spot of a zone" variety, though Taylor's touchdown was a notable exception. On the play, he was lined up at the lead position of a rare, four-receiver diamond formation. His job was to block for Raheem Mostert, who was in the trailing position, on a bubble screen. However, Arizona sniffed it out, and so Taylor had to improvise. After releasing from his block, he faked inside and made a sharp cut to the outside, thereby getting wide open for the score.

2018 Week 3 vs KC (4 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)

Taylor once again played about 40 percent of snaps because the 49ers spent most of the game using two running backs in the formation. All three of his targets came in the second quarter, none of which gained more than 10 yards, and two of which were dumpoffs in desperate down-and-distance situations. Taylor's only target -- and reception -- that came in the normal flow in the game was a 10-yard catch on a shallow cross, in which he found a hole in Kansas City's underneath zone coverage.

2018 Week 2 vs DET (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Taylor was a non-factor mainly due to San Francisco going heavy on two-tight end personnel groups. His first target -- on a quick out route into the left flat -- was broken up by a quickly closing Quandre Diggs. His second target -- on a 10-yard out route from the slot on 3rd-and-7 -- was also broken up by the defender, but this was due to a throw that was high and inside when it needed to be low and outside.

2018 Week 1 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)

As is to be expected when an offense is trailing the entire game, Taylor played more snaps than usual. Performance-wise, he didn't do much outside of a couple of well-designed pass plays that found him open in space thanks to defensive indifference. Usage-wise, however, Kyle Shanahan seemed to send him out wide in the formation (i.e., rather than in the slot) more than he did last season.
