Fantasy Player Projections
Candlestick Park | Sunday, October 04 | 4:15 p.m. EST (FOX)
49ers 16, Rams 10
Pos. Player Projection
QB Kyle Boller
145 pass yards, 2 INTBoller gets another start with a bruised rotator cuff still bothering Marc Bulger. Here's an idea: Bypass the Rams entirely and look elsewhere for your quarterback.
RB Steven Jackson
5 rec, 40 rec yards, 110 rush yards, 1 rush TDSomehow, Jackson has yet to find the end zone in 2009. Don't expect the one-man offensive show to be shut out much longer.
WR Donnie Avery
5 rec, 45 yardsWith leg injuries knocking Laurent Robinson out for the season, Avery earns the promotion to No. 1 wideout on the Rams. Keep an eye on his status for Week 4, though, since Avery's ribs were dinged up Sunday.
WR Keenan Burton
3 rec, 35 yardsDon't waste your time.
TE Daniel Fells
3 rec, 30 yardsIncumbent Randy McMichael seems to be figuring less and less into the team's plans moving forward. Fells, who scored a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's second quarter, is ripe to inherit the gig.
K Josh Brown
1 PAT, 1 FGIt's bad enough Brown plays on a stagnant offense. But missing on those precious few field-goal chances only makes matters worse.
1 sackYou'd have to be mad to start the St. Louis defense when so many viable options are there for the picking on the waiver wire.
Pos. Player Projection
QB Shaun Hill
210 pass yards, 1 pass TDHill has posted decent fantasy numbers so far. But with Frank Gore set to miss the next few weeks with injury, look for Hill's numbers to rise as the San Francisco offense depends more on the pass.
RB Glen Coffee
80 rush yardsCoffee carried 25 times for 54 yards after Gore was hurt on the first play from scrimmage in Week 3. He'll assume starting duties for the next several weeks until Gore can return.
WR Isaac Bruce
3 rec, 60 yardsBruce hasn't contributed much to fantasy efforts in 2009. Turn to the 37-year-old only as a last resort.
WR Josh Morgan
5 rec, 50 yardsToo inconsistent. Too risky.
TE Vernon Davis
6 rec, 100 yards, 1 TDThe biggest fantasy beneficiary of Gore's injury could be Davis, who has become one of Hill's favorite targets.
K Joe Nedney
1 PAT, 3 FGsNedney should get plenty of opportunities. Start him.
2 sacks, 2 INTPlenty of sacks and plenty of picks so far. Mike Singletary has this unit playing with an edge ... and it's translated into fantasy numbers.
