Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D

Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis. Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 2-8 49ers 'should have' 4 wins. They have 3 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs just one good win. They have been below expectations on the road and at home. Their 0-5 road record is -32% lower than expected. Their 2-3 home record is -12% lower. Over the past 3 weeks they have played better going 1-2, 33%. In simulations where the 49ers played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 41.3% of the time (#25 in the league). They have moved up from #31 in the league back on 9/25.

They are a below average scoring team based on points per game and a below average offensive TD per play rate. They are a very poor scoring defense based on points per game, despite having a much better yards per play allowed rank.
