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

Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get

Pro Football Focus released its latest mock draft, courtesy of analyst Ben Linsey. The San Francisco 49ers are highly anticipated to select a quarterback following their recent trade up to the No. 3 spot. They'll have their choice of some good options. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson nearly a lock to go No. 1 and No. 2, San Francisco can go with Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of Alabama. Linsey has San Francisco going with the player who has been the popular choice among 49ers fans—Fields. "Fields' game has been put under the

PFF prefers Justin Fields but still predicts Mac Jones to 49ers in mock draft

Add yet another mock draft to the pile of those that have the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick over Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Andrew Erickson of Pro Football Focus has head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch following the narrative created by Chris Simms, Adam Schefter, Daniel Jeremiah, and other national analysts. That doesn't mean Erickson sees Jones as the better prospect. The projection is just based on what is being heard around the league — not that anyone can say with any certainty what the 49ers plan to do. "Although I personally don't agree with the selection — Justin Fields would be the better option — Jones still

PFF's NFC West mock draft has 49ers landing surprising QB

While the rest of the media believes that the New York Jets drafting quarterback Zach Wilson of BYU to be a near-certainty, Seth Galina of Pro Football Focus doesn't sound too convinced of that. The analyst feels there may be a smokescreen in play, masking New York's true target—Justin Fields of Ohio State. Galina took a look at the NFC West and created a mock draft for the entire division. In it, he has the Jets taking Fields, and Wilson falling to the No. 3 spot, where San Francisco pounces. "There is a very real chance that we have been fed and will continue to be fed the proverbial
