Juszczyk brought in his lone target for three yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over Seattle.
Juszczyk returned to a season-low one target after seeing six over his previous two contests. It has become apparent that head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't view his fullback as an offensive option with Nick Mullens under center, preferring to use his blocking skills as opposed to a weapon out of the backfield. Juszczyk would need a heavy target share to generate value at an unfavorable fantasy position, and that simply isn't the case in the team's current scheme.
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 three-yard carry and added 10 yards on two catches during Monday's 27-23 loss to the Giants.
It has now been four straight weeks without at least 15 total yards for Juszczyk. Juszczyk 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 the 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.
