You Might Just Want to Avoid Tonight’s Game
The 1-2 49ers, who would have thought?
Let’s deal ‘em up!
49ers at Rams
Starting at QB, I’m staying away completely. Defenses have figured out how to (at least) slow the read-option, and Colin Kaepernick has been awful in the last two games. Yes, he needs a healthy Vernon Davis, but I’m not sure that’s the only issue, and at $8,600 (DraftKings), I’m not spending the money. Sam Bradford has actually been quite good, but he’s facing the 49ers defense… end of story. At running back, I may be tempted by Frank Gore at $6,000… maybe. That offense is struggling, and Gore can’t do it alone. In St. Louis, we may have a changing of the guard, but that just means the situation is too messy for us – and again, it’s the 49ers defense! Can we just skip right along at this point? Until the 49ers offense is on track, why bother, especially with Anquan Boldin still at $6,300, and the Rams, well, 49ers defense (think we covered that). Vernon Davis is questionable and Jared Cook still has one game to his credit – just like season’s past. I might consider the 49ers defense at $4,200 especially with Thursday night’s being low scoring most of the time, but if that’s all you like in this matchup, just pass it by. No risk in locking in your lineup this early (unless you play on a site where you can still tinker the rest of the roster).
