Raheem Mostert is PFF’s highest-graded player from 49ers-Dolphins; Niner QBs earn low marks

Oct 12, 2020 at 8:39 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers' outing on Sunday against the visiting Miami Dolphins was horrendous. Not much else can be said of the 43-17 beating that head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad endured.

Pro Football Focus released its grades from Sunday's game, and running back Raheem Mostert earned the highest marks for either team from the analytics site.

Mostert returned after missing two weeks due to an MCL sprain and rushed for 90 yards on 11 carries.

Much of the 49ers offensive line, surprisingly, graded well. Tackles Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey received a boost from strong run-blocking grades. According to Pro Football Focus, the team's best pass blocker ended up being tight end George Kittle.

49ers quarterbacks didn't grade well, however. Both Jimmy Garoppolo and C.J. Beathard earned the lowest marks on offense.

Garoppolo finished the game 7-of-17 for 77 yards with two interceptions and a passer rating of 15.7 during his disastrous half of play. Beathard replaced him in the second half and was 9-of-18 for 94 yards with a touchdown. The Dolphins defense sacked the two quarterbacks a combined five times.

Understandably, the 49ers player who received the lowest grade of the game was cornerback Brian Allen, who was activated off the practice squad on Saturday. Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was 5-of-6 for 124 yards, a touchdown, and a passer rating of 158.3 while targeting Allen before the 49ers benched the struggling defensive back.

Below were the five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Dolphins.

  • Raheem Mostert, RB, 90.2, 31 snaps
  • Trent Williams, LT, 86.3, 64 snaps
  • Mike McGlinchey, RT, 78.0, 64 snaps
  • Laken Tomlinson, LG, 70.0, 64 snaps
  • Daniel Brunskill, RG, 67.5, 64 snaps

Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

'I'm just getting started': 49ers RB Raheem Mostert addresses misconceptions

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is clearly frustrated with the narrative surrounding his future. He is 29 years old and is coming off an injury-plagued 2020 campaign. Although, in his defense, it feels like the entire 49ers roster was impacted by injuries last season, so it's not really fair to single out Mostert. The running back appears healthy and has reportedly looked good in the team's two training camp practices. Mostert wears a brace during those practices. However, it has nothing to do with the injuries that limited the running back to eight games last season. He just wants to clear that

PFF projects Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49ers starter, Dee Ford as a player to watch

Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions. However, some wonder how quickly rookie Trey Lance will get up to speed and if the No. 3 overall pick could show enough in training camp to create a difficult decision for head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus projected the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams, and one of the biggest 49ers-related takeaways is that he has Garoppolo firmly situated as the team's starter, despite the analytics site stating in the past that it holds Lance in high regard and believes he will find NFL success. Lance is still a

49ers LB Fred Warner says his goals remain set to the 'highest standard'

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday. "And that holds true to the season, even before this contract was set and done. My (personal) goals and my goals for this team, they don't change. So that's what's exciting,
