The 49ers dominated the Jaguars in Week 11 and generated a lot of studs in the process, but there are still a few duds from the game, too.
The San Francisco 49ers have their second win streak of the season and have proven they can beat an elite-level team, the Los Angeles Rams, but not fall victim to the “trap game” aftereffect, which could have been the case if the Niners fell on the road to the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
Alas, San Francisco didn’t.
The 49ers pulled off an impressive 30-10 victory on the road in Week 11, dominating the Jags in every facet and on all three phases of the game. A short week with cross-country travel didn’t impact the Niners, who controlled both the ball and the clock, nearly doubling the time of possession and finishing with a plus-2 mark in the turnover-differential department.
Wins like these generate plenty of studs from the game, and San Francisco has quite a few of them.
But there have to be some duds mixed in, too.
Stud: 49ers Wide Receiver Deebo Samuel
Usually, getting just one catch for 15 yards wouldn’t classify a player in the “stud” department.
That’s not the reason wide receiver Deebo Samuel is listed here, however.
Samuel, who had just the one catch, was nevertheless a major offensive factor, only on the ground, rushing a team-high 79 yards on eight carries and averaging 9.9 yards per rush. Including a 25-yard rushing touchdown that put the 49ers up 10-0 early in the second quarter.
True, Samuel might see a slight dip on the No. 2 overall receiver list because of his 15 yards receiving, but there’s no getting around just how much of an offensive impact he has.
No matter where he lines up. And judging by how head coach Kyle Shanahan is using Samuel, it could literally be anywhere.
