49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk over receiving yards
Underdog Picks: Higher Than 79.5 Receiving Yards
PrizePicks: Higher Than 76.5 Receiving Yards
I’m going to once again play against the porous secondary of the Lions by targeting Brandon Aiuyk. Aiyuk is the deep threat for this Niners offense, with the highest aDOT on the team at 14.3. That and his elite speed should help him beat this weak pass defense.
Detroit also gets caught in man coverage quite often, which could be problematic when defending Aiuyk. The former Sun Devil tallied 395 receiving yards against man coverage this season, the sixth-most in the league. He also tallied 20.8 yards per reception against man looks, suitable for third-best in the NFL (minimum 10 targets).
Additionally, the Lions’ defense remains a pass funnel, giving up 349 passing yards last week to Baker Mayfield while allowing a mere 89 yards on the ground. Mike Evans had a fantastic game, tallying 147 receiving yards and a score. Cameron Sutton was particularly awful, allowing seven receptions to his assignments for 147 yards. Opposite of him is where Kindle Vildor lurks, who has also been putrid in coverage this season.
49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk over longest reception
I’m double-dipping on Aiyuk here. The Lions’ defense surrendered 70 explosive pass plays of 20+ yards this season, the most in the league. Their corners were beaten consistently, and they were left on islands alone. They allowed six explosive pass plays of 20+ yards in Week 16 against Vikings’ backup QB Nick Mullens. Should we expect them to hold Aiyuk in check with Kyle Shanahan calling plays?
Aiyuk can also naturally exceed this number if Deebo Samuel (shoulder) is potentially limited. The speedy WR suffered the injury in the first half of last week’s 24-21 win over Green Bay and didn’t return. Even if he suits up, he may be limited in the game, meaning Shanahan will have to turn to Aiyuk for explosive plays down the field against a terrible Detroit secondary.
Lions WR Josh Reynolds over longest reception
Underdog Picks: Higher Than 34.5 Receiving Yards
Reynolds has very quietly been on a tear down the stretch, going over this number in three consecutive games. His uptick in usage is a result of WR Kalif Raymond missing two straight games with a knee injury. I’d rather play Reynolds in this spot than look toward TE Sam LaPorta. LaPorta will be lined up against Fred Warner, one of the best and fastest coverage linebackers in the NFL. LaPorta may be a nice redzone option, but I’d expect Goff to look towards Reynolds before getting there.
Reynolds also has a favorable matchup against slot cornerback Deommodore Lenoir. The third-year DB struggled mightily this year, allowing 804 receiving yards in coverage during the regular season, the fifth-most of any cornerback. I’d expect offensive coordinator Ben Johnson to gravitate his offense toward exploiting this matchup rather than throwing at lockdown cornerback Charvarius Ward on the outside or Warner over the middle.
