49ers | Zone-read offense returned against Tennessee

The San Francisco 49ers were successful on many zone-read runs in their victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. QB Colin Kaepernick had a 20-yard rushing touchdown and finished with 68 yards on 11 runs. His running also opened up throwing lanes on the perimeter for the receivers. WR Anquan Boldin had five catches for 74 yards, and he thought he pistol scheme allowed for one-on-one matchups on the outside. "It makes defenses declare," Boldin said of the quarterback-driven runs. "Are you going to be bringing an eighth guy down in the box to stop the run or are you going to stay with seven guys? It definitely clears things up for us. It allows us to throw the ball outside as well."

Fantasy Tip: The Niners offense is clicking on all cylinders right now, and it coincides with the success that Frank Gore is having on the ground with a substantial workload. Look for San Fran to continue using this recipe, and the success should continue this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
