Los Angeles Rams: Fantasy targets for Week 3

Hoyer's pass on the attempt was intercepted, and the Rams finished the game holding onto their 41-39 lead, much to the delight of Niners bettors everywhere.

After converting on a third and goal scenario for a touchdown to Trent Taylor, the 49ers kicked it away and wide out Aldrick Robinson found a way to put his hat on the ball to pick up a fumble forced, recovered by Victor Bolden. The Rams also crush the 49ers in total offense, but lose in rushing, as the Rams' passing is their strong point.

The Rams (1-1) seem to be trending upwards under first-year coach Sean McVay. "It was out of our control, but we knew the defense would come through".

The 49ers have now lost each of their three games to open the season and will have 10 days until they play another game, which will be an October 1 road matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Rams got on the board quickly, scoring on their first play after an interception by Nickell Robey-Coleman.

TOUCHDOWN TODD: Gurley had two TD runs and caught a touchdown pass, giving him six touchdowns through three weeks. However, their defense couldn't stop Kirk Cousins and the Redskins' offense from completing a 70-yard drive that resulted in an 11-yard game-winning touchdown. He's averaging 7.0 yards a carry but he doesn't have any touchdowns. Gurley has to go up against San Francisco's defensive line that has three first rounders on it. Hyde will try to avoid Aaron Donald, who was rusty last week but is probably returning to form. The Rams scored three touchdowns in the second half while the 49ers had four. "I think the one thing about offense is you can have a great play, and if one guy is off by just a fraction of an inch, it could be the difference".

Gurley rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries, and caught five passes for 36 yards and a score. Most notably, the officials impacted the end of the game.

Recently acquired receiver Sammy Watkins had a pair of touchdowns and 106 yards receiving.

This sounds like an old school battle of running backs.

Like lighting a match, the Hoyer keeper began a full-on shootout unlike anything Levi's stadium had seen before. "It was exciting. It was fun". The one Shanahan helped mold last season. The excitement for the season should be tempered.

The good news is the Rams have scored 66 points in their first two game of the season. He is having a bad year so far with two interceptions and virtually no protection by the 49ers' Offensive Line.

Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said he never saw a replay and with the play happening on the far side of the field, he had a poor vantage point.

Despite the interception thrown to start the game, Hoyer's 87.7 grade by Pro Football Focus was his best of the season and the third-best among 49ers players on Thursday night. Garçon led 49ers receivers with seven receptions for 142 yards.
