Survivor San Francisco 49ers Hoodie
,We are entering the fourth week of the season, with 30 of the 32 teams about to be through the first quarter of their schedule. Washington and Carolina have a bye week, but the remaining 30 teams are in action, starting with a huge potential playoff preview on Thursday Night Football between the Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings.It’s time once again for our pick ‘em and Survivor pool contest options. We have the weekly prediction contest this season, and you can make those picks here. We also have a traditional “Pick ‘Em” contest. If you still want to join, the group name is Niners Nation, the group ID is 45734, and the password is go49ers. You’re pretty far behind, but feel free to join.We continue with Survivor pools, after a huge chunk of people were knocked out for picking the Minnesota Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars, or New England Patriots. I took the Chicago Bears, and barely survived over the Arizona Cardinal. This followed me taking the New Orleans Saints in Week 2, and the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1.This week, the Los Angeles Chargers (hosting the San Francisco 49ers), Green Bay Packers (hosting the Buffalo Bills) Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys
, and Jacksonville Jaguars (hosting the New York Jets) are the three most popular picks. The 49ers downgrade at quarterback with C.J. Beathard, but the Chargers are not a particularly good team. I think LA probably wins, but I think the 49ers are going to give them a scare. So much so in fact that I might take them as a ten-point favorite in the Super Contest. For Survivor, I am leaning towards the Packers — I look for a Bills letdown after that upset.Tonight, Week 4 opens with the Rams hosting the Vikings. The Rams are a touchdown favorite in this one, even with a host of injuries piling up. Cornerback Aqib Talib was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury, and cornerback Marcus Peters is questionable with a calf injury. I think the Rams could pull this out, but I think the line might be a little inflated by the Vikings’ shocking loss to Buffalo. I’m gonna take the points with Minnesota.Here are the rest of my straight-up picks. I was 9-7 last week, bringing my season record to 29-17-2. I’ll have my picks against the spread later this weekend.Vikings @ Rams: VikingsBengals @ Falcons: BengalsBuccaneers @ Bears: BearsLions @ Cowboys: CowboysBills @ Packers: PackersEagles @ Titans: EaglesTexans @ Colts: ColtsDolphins @ Patriots: PatriotsJets @ Jaguars: JaguarsBrowns @ Raiders: RaidersSeahawks @ Cardinals: SeahawksSaints @ Giants: Saints49ers @ Chargers: ChargersRavens @ Steelers: RavensChiefs @ Broncos: ChiefsD.J. Reed has been the 49ers most valuable day 3 pick this year The San Francisco 49ers made some big strides with their day 3 draft class a year ago, but this year things are a little slower developing. Pro Football Focus put together a list of the best 2018 day three draft pick for each team, and it was not a difficult choice for the 49ers. Defensive back D.J. Reed got the nod.Reed has been the team’s primary kick returner, returning ten kicks for 302 yards. He has a 90-yard return, which could have been a touchdown had he not grabbed an opponent’s face mask on the return. His longest return other than that is a pair of 29 yard returns the past two weeks.Three weeks ago, Reed got a chance to play free safety after Adrian Colbert suffered a hip injury. Reed played 51 defensive snaps that week, and then got the start the following week against the Los Angeles Chargers, playing 68 defensive snaps. Philip Rivers did not test him all that frequently www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com
, instead taking advantage of shorter passes to chew up the 49ers defense for stretches. Akash Anavarathan broke down Reed’s performance in a film breakdown.Reed will stick with special teams work exclusively when the rest of the secondary is healthy, but he is at least getting a regular opportunity. The rest of the 49ers day three picks are either on an injured list or getting little work. Safety Marcell Harris and defensive lineman Kentavius Street are out for the year due to injuries. Wide receiver Richie James has been active twice now and snagged his first career reception this past week. Defensive lineman Jullian Taylor has been inactive all five weeks thus far after a solid showing in the preseason.A year ago, the 49ers saw two of their day three picks get starting opportunities, one earning close to a starting role, and another getting some limited work. Tight end George Kittle joined Garrett Celek in the starting lineup, and Adrian Colbert claimed the starting free safety role. Wide receiver Trent Taylor technically wasn’t a starter, but played significant snaps as the team’s primary slot receiver. Defensive lineman D.J. Jones did not play a lot of snaps, but did get more opportunities than we’re seeing from some of the day three rookies this year.The 49ers welcomed Victor Bolden back last week from his four-game suspension, and he quickly moved into a starting role in place of Marquise Goodwin. James got some work, but it was fairly limited. If Goodwin is out again this week, James would likely see a similar role against the Packers. But if Goodwin can play, James stands a good chance of being inactive on game day.Jullian Taylor is a guy I would love to see get some kind of opportunity before the season ends. He had a solid preseason, with a standout performance in the first game. The team might not think he’s ready to contribute, but in a season where it is likely more about evaluating for 2019 than anything else, I would hope he gets an opportunity soon.
