Layne Ducks came back to take the lead early afternoon Sunday, powered by Derrick Henry (27.9 points) and the Baltimore Ravens defense (13).

The San Francisco 49ers defense
Hey, football is all about spotting the mismatches. Thanks to stellar production from our receiving corps, our squad really took that to heart this past week. We royally dominated Layne Ducks at wide receiver (33.3 points to 13.28). DeAndre Hopkins had 111 receiving yards and two TDs while Allen Robinson II chipped in with 102 yards.
Welp, we certainly can't gripe about a lack of opportunities this week, can we? Our pass-catching corps (two WR and one TE) were targeted a respectable 15 times in Week 1. Those players might need to hit the practice field, considering they managed only eight catches.
