Buyer Beware Player Of The Week: San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin

Buyer Beware Player Of The Week: San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin

For most of the season, San Francisco wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was like the rest of the 49ers skill players—a forgettable daily fantasy option. But then the team acquired Jimmy Garappolo. When they inserted Garappolo into the lineup something clicked for Goodwin.

With Garappolo behind center, Goodwin has become one of the more productive wide receivers in daily fantasy play. But you are better off leaving him on the bench this week.

Why?

Garappolo and Goodwin have been a tremendous duo the last three weeks (24 receptions for 319 yards; targeted 33 times). But this week they will be facing their biggest challenge in the Jacksonville Jaguars defense.

Jacksonville is allowing the fewest points per week to quarterbacks (9.4) and wide receivers (15) this season. They have two guys in the top ten in sacks (Calais Campbell—14.5 and Yannick Ngakoue—11) and lead the league as a team with 51.

San Francisco’s offensive line has allowed Garappolo to be sacked seven times and hit 19 times in three starts against the Titans, Bears, and Texans. The Titans and Bears fifth and sixth in sacks this season; Houston is 20th.

So, is there a chance the 49ers offensive line can handle the Jaguars pass rush?

Week 16 projections

They’re No. 1 for a reason

There is always that possibility, but let’s be real. The 49ers offensive line doesn’t stand a chance. With the pressure the Jaguars are going to put on Garappolo, he is going to struggle to find time to throw. He’ll have a tough time fitting the ball through the small windows the Jaguars secondary allows.

To be fair, the Jaguars defense did give up touchdowns to Jaron Brown, T.Y. Hilton, Tyler Lockett, Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and DeAndre Hopkins over the last four games. So, maybe there is hope for Goodwin?

Yes, there is hope, but just a little. Do you want to start a guy because there is little hope he might score? If you want to win, it’s probably not a good idea.
