Week 9 vs. Green Bay Packers
It seems like it might be JaMycal Hasty for the foreseeable future in the 49ers’ backfield, so grab him if he’s still available. It’s risky to trust him, as Jerick McKinnon is still lurking, but he had 12 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown last week, and McKinnon had just three carries in a loss to the Seahawks. The 49ers are watching their season fall apart behind a rash of injuries, so they might as well see what they have in Hasty before heading into the offseason.
The Packers gave up 100 touchdowns to Dalvin Cook last week, who just scored three more while I was writing this blurb. It’s hard to imagine the 49ers staying in this game long enough to run the ball effectively, but the Packers have now had two complete duds this season, so you never know. Hasty has some very risky RB2 potential this week against the league’s lowest-ranked defense in aFPA to opposing running backs.
