49ers Using Read-Option Sparingly

Sep 20, 2013 11:12 AM

The San Francisco 49ers have used the read-option on just 16 snaps this season, gaining 26 yards.

The 49ers have averaged 0.6 yards before first contact compared to 5.6 yards before contact last season.

“We really haven’t placed a big emphasis on the read-option to this point in the season,” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said. “But that could change.” 

The read-option seems to be most effective when it is least expected instead of as a core element of the offense.
