The on-paper matchup for Wilson here isn't pretty either, but there's a silver lining. The 49ers are seventh in pass defense DVOA while also ranking inside the top four in success rate (fourth-best) and EPA (third-best) per dropback. So yeah, this looks like a tough assignment. Until we also see that the 49ers are 19th in DVOA against deep passing. They have allowed opposing quarterbacks in the early going to complete 57.1% of their deep passes with two touchdowns (zero interceptions) and a 129.4 passer rating. Wilson is first in deep pass attempts, fourth in deep passing yards, and 14th in deep passer rating. Let's Ride!

Fantasy Impact

Wilson didn't eclipse 40 pass attempts again this week. But the QB attempted a healthy 31 attempts. The offense scored only one touchdown this week, the game's lone TD of the day. In a wacky Week 2, better days are ahead for Wilson's fantasy value.
