Juszczyk caught all three of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 43-16 loss to the Seahawks. Juszczyk did not record a touch in last week's loss to Tampa Bay, so Sunday's showing was a step in the right direction. Still, the 27-year-old hasn't posted a noteworthy performance since accruing 87 yards back in Week 5, and his status as a fullback sours any potential as a PPR option for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos.
Juszczyk did not receive a touch in Sunday's 27-9 loss to Tampa Bay. Juszczyk was a regular part of the passing game earlier this season (23 catches for 265 yards and a touchdown), but he has seen his role diminish in the three games Nick Mullens has started at quarterback (just six touches over that span). With his new quarterback favoring other passing options, Juice's fantasy value has been drained completely.
Juszczyk had a 3-yard carry and added 10 yards on two catches during Monday's 27-23 loss to the Giants. This marks four straight weeks without at least 15 total yards for Juszczyk, who was performing beyond that of the average fullback to start the season with a few long receptions and even a touchdown in Week 3. Those times appear to be over for a banged-up 49ers offense. Following their Week 11 bye, the 49ers get a bottom-five pass defense in Tampa Bay, but Juszczyk hasn't been targeted enough lately for him to be counted on to exploit the favorable matchup.
Juszczyk gained a yard on one carry and caught both of his targets for 10 yards in Thursday's 34-3 win over Oakland. Juszczyk failed to haul in a pass for the first time all season last week against the Cardinals, but he got back in the receiving column Thursday. Despite his regular involvement in the passing game, the fullback's production has tailed off after he flashed some big-play ability earlier in the campaign. That leaves him off the radar in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into the Week 10 matchup with the Giants.
Juszczyk was targeted once during Sunday's 18-15 loss to Arizona but was unable to come down with the catch. He gained 10 yards on two carries. Juszczyk had a big 87-yard day against Arizona in Week 5 but was unable to come close to that Sunday. The fullback did have his first multiple-carry game of the season but recorded 30 or fewer yards for the third straight week. He remains a sometimes-viable receiver out of the backfield, but his production doesn't happen often enough to make him worth playing Thursday, even against a middle-of-the-road Oakland pass defense, which is surrendering 270 receiving yards per game.
