Does Chase Young make teams change their whole game plan?

Author: Jon Kuzma


If you watched Chase Young’s first game back. It became obvious that the 49ers were avoiding Young at all costs. There were so many runs that went away from Young. It just goes to show how much respect the 49ers have for Young. Because they basically gave up whatever side of the field he was lined up on. If the other teams use this same blueprint. What that’s going to do is make those teams more predictable. If they have to avoid Young. Then that means you can bring a safety up in run support on the opposite side of the field. Since that plays to the percentages. So just by having Chase Young on the field. It cuts down on so many different play calls for the offense. There’s only so much you can do against a defender that is this physically dominant.
