Anytime touchdown scorer: Trey Lance (+260)

"It's time to see what gameplan Kyle Shanahan has been developing for his young quarterback. I expect it's not going to involve a lot of passing, as I don't think Lance is there yet as a passer, and that means a lot of designed runs that should take advantage of the fact that the Cardinals are 31st in yards per rush allowed on the year. The 49ers will also have Elijah Mitchell back at running back, and with George Kittle doubtful to play, it seems likely Lance is going to use his legs on some zone read plays in the red zone."

Brandon Aiyuk Under 37.5 receiving yards (-130)

"Aiyuk has been an afterthought in the offense, seeing no more than one catch in three of his four games. In his season-best effort, he had just 37 yards on four receptions against the Packers. Even with George Kittle likely sidelined, I don't see things getting much better for Aiyuk with a quarterback under center who will likely be asked to use his legs more than his arm. And now the 49ers are getting healthier at running back, making it even less likely they open up the passing game. I'm surprised this number isn't in the 20s."

DeAndre Hopkins Under 75.5 receiving yards (-115)

"Hopkins is one of the most talented receivers in the league, but the Cardinals have been more than content to spread the ball all over the offense in the passing game, which has led to Chase Edmonds leading the team in receptions and Hopkins being part of a pack of five players on the team with 15-17 catches on the year. One year after averaging 10 targets per game, he hasn't seen more than eight looks in a single game this year, and he has four receptions or fewer in each of his last three games. With the 49ers giving up just 11.5 catches per game to receivers, Hopkins is only going to top this number if Arizona abandons what it's done for the past month and starts funneling him the ball."
