Week 20: vs Green Bay Packers

All RB vs GB

FBG says: Good matchup. The San Francisco 49ers' rushing attack is one of the league's best units. In a pass-first league, their focus on the run game is a unique differentiator for this offense, whose personnel perfectly aligns with their offensive tendencies. While the offensive line grades as a barely-above-average unit overall, George Kittle and Kyle Juzsczyk, two elite run-blockers at tight end and fullback, respectively, help create massive rushing lanes for the numerous running backs that see regular action in this backfield. Down the stretch of the regular season, Raheem Mostert saw the majority of the work in the backfield, playing over 50-percent of snaps in every regular-season game since Week 12. However, this changed in last week's game, as he took a backseat to Tevin Coleman. Mostert still carried the ball 12 times on the day, but his 34-percent snap-share and overall involvement in the offense were bested by Coleman's numbers. Coleman played 46-percent of San Francisco's offensive snaps, his highest total since Week 12, and he carried the ball 22 times for 105 yards and 2 scores, with the carry and yardage totals matching his season-highs. Coleman was a marquee free agent signing for the 49ers, and his decreased workload ahead of the playoffs may have been an effort to preserve his health for the most important games on the team's schedule. Expect Coleman to lead the way in the team's backfield once again this weekend against Green Bay. Green Bay's run defense overall grades as a slightly-below-average unit, facing medial volume but allowing the 10th-most rushing yardage, 13th-highest number of rushing touchdowns, and 9th-most yards per carry of any team in the NFL. On the year, the Packers only allowed 3 100-yard rushers, but their inability to keep opposing running backs out of the end zone hurt the unit, as they allowed the 8th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. In the trenches, Za'Darius Smith and Kenny Clark both excel at filling rushing lanes; however, both players have been plagued by missed tackles this season, preventing their full impact from being felt. At linebacker, Blake Martinez is one of the league-leaders in tackles. However, his high tackle count is a product of simply being a sure tackler that cleans up the mess after the defensive-front frequently whiffs on finishing plays. Martinez struggles to quickly identify plays and stuff them in their tracks, as only 5 out of his 155 total tackles have come behind the line of scrimmage. In the secondary, the primary run-supported is Adrian Amos. Amos was brought in this offseason to fill the void left by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and he has surpassed all expectations as an elite pass and run defender. Overall, Green Bay's defense will likely struggle to contain San Francisco's elite and sophisticated rushing attack this weekend. Expect 49ers' head coach and play-caller Kyle Shanahan to take full advantage of the Packers' relative weakness against the run in a soft matchup for his top-flight ground game.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 3 vs PIT (8 / 18 / 2 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Once again, Wilson only saw the field when San Francisco was inside Pittsburgh's 20-yard line. As such, he didn't do much to warrant description besides fall forward into the end zone a couple of times.

2019 Week 2 vs CIN (10 / 34 / 2 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Wilson only played 21 percent of snaps, but an inordinate amount of them were in the red zone. With the 49ers advancing the ball easily against Cincinnati, it makes sense that Mostert would have two rushing touchdowns on only 10 carries. It should be noted, however, that, as was the theme of this team performance, the touchdown runs themselves weren't particularly difficult individually.
