Week 10’s Sunday Night Football matchup is a West Coast clash between the Los Angeles Chargers and San Francisco 49ers.

I have two players to target — one from each team — in this game. These players aren’t the flashiest of names and are more bargain-bin guys who could surprise.

WR DeAndre Carter, Chargers

Keenan Allen’s perpetually balky hamstring has thrown Carter into the role of primary slot receiver for the Chargers this season, which gives him a plus draw in this matchup against Jimmie Ward.

In making the switch back from safety, Ward has allowed a ton of production in his two healthy games. On just 75 snaps in coverage, Ward has allowed opposing receivers to catch 10-of-10 targets for 82 yards and two TDs, per PFF.

Carter has run a route on at least 87% of Justin Herbert’s dropbacks in each of the past two games and figures to be a go-to guy again.

WR Jauan Jennings, 49ers

The Chargers play man coverage at the seventh-highest rate, which makes Jennings a good player to target.

Per PFF, Jennings has drawn the second-most targets on the team versus man coverage (9), and a team-leading 37.5% of his targets have come versus man. Jennings has seen multiple targets in every game and has drawn at least three targets in all but two games.
