C.J. Beathard, Kendrick Bourne among PFF’s highest-graded 49ers players vs. Seahawks

Jan 4, 2021 at 6:13 AM--


Quarterback C.J. Beathard had a good game on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. His 81.3 overall grade from the analytics site was the best among San Francisco 49ers players. Beathard finished the game completing 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 98.1.

On top of the insurmountable number of injuries the team endured this past season, the 49ers spent the last month in Arizona after Santa Clara County COVID-19 restrictions banned contact sports.

"Hopefully, we don't ever have to do this again, first off," Beathard said after the game, ready to finally get home. "But, there were some good times, some good memories here with the guys when you're all kind of bunked up in the same hotel you get to see them in passing a little bit. We weren't allowed to really hang out or whatever. So that kind of stunk, but overall, you learn from it, and you get better from the situation you're put in."

The second-highest graded 49ers player was wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, who hauled in five receptions for 76 yards against Seattle. Bourne was the 10th-highest-graded receiver in the NFL from Week 10, and Beathard owned a passer rating of 118.8 when targeting him.

On defense, cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon was the 49ers' highest-graded player. He allowed just two receptions on six targets during 42 coverage snaps. One of them, however, was a touchdown.

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers struck gold at wide receiver for the second consecutive year. It was Deebo Samuel in 2019, and in 2020, the Bay Area team landed another versatile wideout via the draft in Brandon Aiyuk. Aiyuk finished the season with 60 receptions for 748 yards with five touchdowns. He added six carries for 77 rushing yards and another two scores on the ground. The superb first year was enough to land Aiyuk on Pro Football Focus' 2020 NFL All-Rookie Team. "The 49ers struck again," wrote Ben Linsey. "Aiyuk is in the same mold as the George Kittles and the Deebo Samuelses added to San

We'll probably be hearing a lot of speculation surrounding potential trades for quarterback Deshaun Watson until his situation with the Houston Texans gets resolved — if it gets resolved. While most believe that a trade is unlikely to happen, Ian Rapoport's report that Watson is "extremely unhappy" with the Texans brass can't be ignored. Could Watson be so unhappy that he would welcome a divorce from the team that made him the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 draft? Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk was the first to spark the social-media buzz, reporting that NFL whispers were pointing to Watson being so upset that he might potentially request a trade.
