Todd Gurley rushed 28 times for 113 yards and two rushing touchdowns and caught 5-of-7 targets for 36 yards and one receiving touchdown against the 49ers in Week 3.

This isn't that same old seven and nine stuff. Gurley's three TDs in the first half got him to six in the first 10 quarters of this season, which matched his entire total in 2016. His usage is headed to be among the league leaders and the Rams' sudden improvement on offense should lead to more scores. Coach Sean McVay blamed himself for Gurley's fumbling issues in Week 2 and talked about his own "uncharacteristic decisions" and "indecisiveness," so clearly he trusts his bell-cow back. Gurley looks like he will be an RB1 in his third season.

Sammy Watkins is in the concussion protocol following a win over the 49ers in Week 3, finishing with six catches, 106 yards and two touchdowns on his seven targets.

He was hit hard on his second touchdown, walked to the locker room under his own power, and the severity of the injury is not yet known, but let's focus on how marvelous he was before the injury for now. He scored his first touchdown as the primary read on a double slant from the one-yard line, and Watkins had one of the prettiest over-the-shoulder catches you'll ever see for a 47-yard completion earlier in the game. Coach Sean McVay talked about getting his key players in a better rhythm, so it would appear we won't see Watkins get 3.5 targets per game like he did in the first two outings this year. Hopefully, the extra days off before Week 4 will be enough for him to be ready for the Cowboys.

Robert Woods caught 6-of-7 targets for 108 yards against the 49ers in Week 3.

He led the Rams receivers in snaps for the first two games and he was even out there in one-wide sets near the goal line tonight. As impressive as this line is after a one-catch Week 2, the Rams do look to be involving Sammy Watkins more and running the rock will be essential to their success, so Woods will have tough time matching this output most weeks. Unless Watkins does have a concussion and needs to miss time, Woods isn't really a great fantasy pickup after this one.
Sep 22 - 12:24 AM

Cooper Kupp caught 2-of-2 targets for 17 yards against the 49ers in Week 3.

He played 37 of the 65 snaps in this game, but this win was all about Todd Gurley and Sammy Watkins. Jared Goff going down the field more than anticipated has cooled the hype on the slot man, but NFL defenses could make an adjustment to help make the rookie as more of a security blanket. Most owners in competitive leagues should just bench him, but he is trending down after his strong Week 1.

Gerald Everett was not targeted in Week 3 against the 49ers.

He entered Week 3 as the leading rookie for receiving yards, but a 69-yard reception last week is the main reason. Everett isn't running enough routes or getting enough snaps to be counted on in re-draft leagues .

Tavon Austin rushed three times for 14 yards and wasn't targeted against the 49ers in Week 3.

Late in the fourth quarter, he needed to be evaluated for a concussion. The Rams have been lining him up out wide and they had him in the backfield because the Rams only had two active backs. He almost scored on a jet sweep from 11 yards out, but he was tackled just shy of the goal line. This week, coach Sean McVay said Austin "has a lot more in him, just as a complete receiver," but he's still getting most of his looks as a gadget guy.

Brian Hoyer completed 23-of-37 passes for 332 yards and two passing touchdowns with nine rushing yards and one rushing score in a 41-39 loss during Week 3 against the Rams.

It looked like he was in for a rough night with an interception on the first play that was nearly a pick six. Hoyer had three turnovers in the first two games and the 49ers didn't post any touchdowns in those two games, so there were some murmurs of C.J. Beathard pushing him sooner rather than later. It's a step forward for the 31-year-old Spartan, but he's still only a low-end QB2 against the Cardinals in Week 4.
Sep 22 - 12:09 AM

Carlos Hyde rushed 25 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams in a Week 3 loss, adding three catches for 10 yards.

He suffered a left hip injury in the first quarter and returned in the second quarter after some heat treatment. Hyde was able to score his first TD of the season with the 49ers running in four consecutive times on a goal-to-go situation, and his second TD came on another big fourth down in the fourth quarter. Additionally, coach Kyle Shanahan does appear to have plans of using Hyde as a pass catcher all season. He'll get a few extra days off to heal his hip, so his fantasy owners should plan on locking him in for Week 4 against the Cardinals.
