INJURY REPORT: Leonard Fournette is probable for Sunday's game after missing Week 15 due to a quad injury. Allen Robinson (knee, out for the year), Marqise Lee (ankle, doubtful) and Allen Hurns (ankle, questionable) leave the Jags' receiver corps banged-up. Marcedes Lewis (shoulder) is also questionable.
On the other side, DeForest Buckner (ankle) is questionable, but Trent Brown (shoulder), Garry Gilliam (knee), Jaquiski Tartt (arm), Pierre Garcon (neck) and Jimmie Ward (forearm) are all out.
OUR PREDICTION: Jimmy G has been outstanding for the 49ers but he and the 49ers will have a difficult time moving the ball against the Jags' outstanding defense. The under is 5-2 in the Jaguars' last seven road games, is 5-2 in their last seven games versus a team with a losing record, and is 5-2-1 in their last eight games played in Week 16.
On the other side, the under has cashed in 10 of the Niners' last 11 home games versus a team with a winning road record. The under is also 5-2 in the 49ers' last seven games overall.
