Jimmy Garoppolo completed 16-of-27 passes for 239 yards and one touchdown in the 49ers' 24-9, Week 4 win over the Rams.

04 October 2022

Unlike his counterpart on the other side, Garoppolo took care of the football and wasn't sacked a single time despite the Niners missing star LT Trent Williams due to an ankle injury. Garoppolo got the ball out quick, and Deebo Samuel did all the work on his touchdown, turning a quick slant into a 57-yard score. Garoppolo had four pass plays of 20-plus yards. Not a volume passer, Garoppolo will be a low-end QB2 for Week 5 against the lowly Panthers in a spot the Niners should be able to run the ...

Darrell Henderson rushed seven times for 27 yards in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

04 October 2022

With the Rams chasing points most of the night, Henderson out-snapped Cam Akers 44-28 and played extensively in third-down and two-minute situations. He caught just 3-of-4 targets for 12 yards as a receiver and was still out-carried by Akers 8-7. Neither found the end zone, and it was actually Malcolm Brown, fresh off the practice squad, seeing the snaps at the goal line. This backfield looks like a mess headed into Week 5 against the Cowboys. Henderson is a low-floor RB3.

Cam Akers rushed eight times for 13 yards in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

04 October 2022

He failed to catch his lone target in the passing game. Akers dominated early-down work for the Rams and out-carried Darrell Henderson 8-7, but with the Rams chasing points much of the night, Henderson out-snapped Akers 44-28 and saw four targets. Akers will be a low-floor RB2/FLEX next week against Dallas. Los Angeles clearly isn't happy with its backfield after promoting Malcolm Brown from the practice squad for this one.

George Kittle caught 2-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the 49ers' Week 4 win over the Rams.

04 October 2022

Kittle wasn't targeted in the first half but started the third quarter with a 20-yard grab down the seam. That was his highlight of the night. Kittle has gone 4/28 and 2/24 in back-to-back games after missing Weeks 1-2 with a groin injury. He's a boom-or-bust TE1 headed into Week 5 against the Panthers. Kittle is still running a route on virtually every drop-back.

Brandon Aiyuk caught all four of his targets for 37 yards in the 49ers' Week 4 win over the Rams.

04 October 2022

Aiyuk's four targets tied with two others for second on the team behind Deebo Samuel's seven. Samuel did all of the heavy lifting with a 6/115/1 performance. Aiyuk has now seen 12 targets in two full starts with Jimmy Garoppolo under center, catching seven for 76 yards and a touchdown. Aiyuk will be an upside WR3 next week against the Panthers.

Ben Skowronek caught 2-of-3 targets for 33 yards in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

04 October 2022

Skowronek continues to operate as the Rams' clear WR3 in terms of snaps and routes behind Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson, but Skowronek has actually out-performed Robinson the last two weeks with six catches for 99 yards to A-Rob's 4/30/0 line in that span. Skowronek still isn't a worthwhile fantasy player ahead of Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Jauan Jennings caught 2-of-4 targets for 22 yards in the 49ers' Week 4 win over the Rams.

04 October 2022

Jennings did all of his "damage" in the first half. He's operating as the 49ers' clear WR3, but Jennings is maybe fifth in line for touches in this low-volume offense.

Allen Robinson caught just 2-of-6 targets for seven yards in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the 49ers Monday night.

04 October 2022

It might just be time to cut bait with Robinson in shallow redraft leagues. He's gone 1/12/0, 4/53/1, 2/23/0, and now 2/7/0 in four games with Matthew Stafford. The quarterback doesn't even look Robinson's way unless it's a low-percentage end-zone fade. Robinson is being peppered with those but isn't coming down with them. Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee are Stafford's clear top two targets right now, and Robinson is fighting for scraps with Ben Skowronek and the running backs. Robinson simply can' ...

49ers DE Arik Armstead exited Week 4 against the Rams with a foot injury and will not return.

03 October 2022

Armstead came into this one questionable with a foot issue, and it sounds like he aggravated it. The 49ers haven't needed Armstead against the Rams' Swiss-cheese offensive line.

Matthew Stafford completed 32-of-48 passes for 254 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Rams' 24-9, Week 4 loss to the 49ers Monday night.

03 October 2022

Playing behind to the equivalent of a third-string offensive line, Stafford absorbed seven sacks for the second time this season and was under intense pressure much of the night. The Rams don't have a downfield weapon with Van Jefferson (knee) hurt and Odell Beckham still a rehabbing free agent, so Stafford has resorted to peppering Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee with high-percentage targets in the short area of the field. He averaged a pitiful 5.3 YPA in this one and could have easily tossed thre ...

Deebo Samuel caught 6-of-7 targets for 115 yards and one touchdown in the 49ers' Week 4 win over the Rams.

03 October 2022

Samuel only rushed two times for two yards, as Jeff Wilson did all of the heavy lifting as a runner with 18/74/1 on the ground. Samuel, however, dunked on the Rams with a 57-yard catch-and-run touchdown on a slant in the second quarter. He almost did it again from 58 yards out in the second half, going for just 29 yards on a 3rd-and-13 call. It was Samuel's first 100-yard game of the season and his first touchdown as a receiver. He also led the team with his seven targets. Samuel will be an easy ...

Cooper Kupp caught 14-of-19 targets for 122 yards in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the 49ers.

03 October 2022

Kupp's 14 catches marked a new career-high, and his 19 targets were one off his high-water mark of 20 in 2020. Literally the only means of offense for the Rams this season, Kupp has already seen 54 targets in four games and has three 100-yard outings. Fantasy's easy overall WR1, Kupp may just exceed 200 targets after seeing 191 last year. The Rams just don't have any other capable receivers that Matthew Stafford can connect with right now. Allen Robinson has been a bust through four weeks. Kupp ...

Jeff Wilson rushed 18 times for 74 yards and one touchdown in the 49ers' Week 4 win over the Rams.

03 October 2022

Wilson got the scoring started for the Niners with an explosive 32-yard touchdown run right through the teeth of the Rams' defense. He looked like he was shot out of a cannon. With Elijah Mitchell (knee) injured the last three weeks and still on I.R., Wilson has racked up carry totals of 18, 12, and 18 the last three games. This was his first touchdown. Wilson is a rock-solid, every-week RB2 headed into a Week 5 date with the lowly Panthers. He's dominating the backfield work for San Francisco. ...

Tyler Higbee caught 10-of-14 targets for 73 yards in the Rams' Week 4 loss to the 49ers Monday night.

03 October 2022


Rams C Coleman Shelton exited Week 4 against the 49ers with an ankle injury and will not return.

03 October 2022

Shelton, the Rams' starting right guard, has been forced to play center the last three weeks because Brian Allen needed knee surgery after Week 1. Shelton tried to play the Rams' second drive, but it didn't go well, and he was ruled out. Jeremiah Kolone is now in the game. Los Angeles' line has been wrecked by offseason departures and in-season injuries.

Broncos signed RB Latavius Murray off the Saints' practice squad.

03 October 2022

Murray, 32, is the Broncos' answer in the wake of Javonte Williams' season-ending torn ACL and LCL. Murray, of course, was elevated to the Saints' 53-man roster this past weekend in London and responded with an 11/57/1 rushing line. We'd still venture to guess Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone will get the first cracks at carries for Denver, but Murray is a veteran option if Gordon and Boone can't get the job done.

Rams declared WR Tutu Atwell, QB Bryce Perkins, CB David Long, LG David Edwards, CB Cobie Durant, CB Shaun Jolly, and C Brian Allen inactive for Week 4 against the 49ers.

03 October 2022

Atwell is a healthy scratch and has been passed on the depth chart by UDFA rookie WR Lance McCutcheon. Long, Edwards, Durant, and Allen are all injured.

Seahawks EDGE Darryl Johnson suffered a "significant" foot injury in the Week 4 win over the Lions and will be out indefinitely.

03 October 2022

A trip to injured reserve sounds likely for the fourth-year pro. Johnson is on his third team after being a 2019 seventh-rounder of the Bills and has played 19% of the Seahawks' defensive snaps through four weeks. He has two career sacks.

Ross Dwelley (rib) is active for Week 4 against the Rams Monday night.

03 October 2022

This only matters for one-game DFS purposes after Dwelley played 28% and 37% of the snaps Weeks 1-2 when George Kittle was sidelined. Dwelley played 7% of the snaps Week 3. Inactive for the 49ers are WR Danny Gray (hip), RB Tyrion Davis-Price (ankle), S Tarvarius Moore, OL Nick Zakelj, LT Trent Williams (ankle), TE Tyler Kroft (knee), and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee).

Speaking on Monday, Commanders HC Ron Rivera said Jahan Dotson (hamstring) could be out "a week or two."

03 October 2022

Dotson downplayed the severity of his injury following Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, but it sounds like the team has doubts about him suiting up in Week 5. The Commanders are set to take on the Titans this Sunday and then face the Bears on Thursday night in Week 6. Wide receiver Dyami Brown took over in Dotson's absence on Sunday but can be kept off the fantasy radar. Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel could see an increase in targets if Dotson is sidelined.
