QBJason Campbell

Jason Campbell

180 pass yards, pass TD, INT, 12 rush yards

With Jay Cutler nursing a Week 10 concussion, Campbell should get the start at San Francisco Monday night. The 49ers have allowed just eight passing touchdowns this season, and Campbell will be in for a rough day.

RBMatt Forte

Matt Forte

70 rush yards, 2 rec, 18 rec yards

After scoring in back-to-back games, Forte was held to just 39 rushing yards on 16 carries against Houston in Week 10. The Niners have allowed just three touchdowns all season, which makes Forte more of an RB2 than RB1 this week.

RBMichael Bush

Michael Bush

40 rush yards, 1 rec, 9 rec yards

Bush had just three carries for 34 yards against the Texans, and he also fumbled the ball away for the first time this season. The Niners are tough against the run, so both Bush and Matt Forte are going to have a tough time in Week 11.

WRBrandon Marshall

Brandon Marshall

8 rec, 95 yards, rec TD

While Marshall didn't score against the Texans, he was still able to catch eight balls for 107 yards in Week 10. He battled through double teams against one of the best defenses in the league. And now he's rewarded by facing another great defense in San Francisco. He's still a must-start player, regardless of the matchup.

WRAlshon Jeffery

Alshon Jeffery

3 rec, 35 yards

Jeffery (hand) might return for his first game since Week 5, but fantasy owners should steer clear until the rookie proves he is ready to contribute big numbers.

WREarl Bennett

Earl Bennett

2 rec, 23 yards

The Niners have a tough pass defense, and the Bears could be without their starting quarterback. Bennett's fantasy value takes a dip for those reasons, as well as the fact that Alshon Jeffery (hand) should be back this week.

TEKellen Davis

Kellen Davis

1 rec, 8 yards

Davis caught just one pass for six yards against the Texans in Week 10. He has caught more than one pass in just three games this season.

KRobbie Gould

Robbie Gould

PAT, 2 FGs

Gould had two field goals, including a 51-yarder, in Week 10 against the Texans. He didn't have any extra point attempts, however. In his past four games, he has eight field goals and nine extra points.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Bears have the top fantasy defense in the league, and they have scored eight defensive touchdowns. If the 49ers have to start rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the Bears could score on another pick-six.

QBAlex Smith

Alex Smith

170 pass yards, pass TD, INT

Smith suffered a concussion in Week 10, but it appears that he could play against the Bears in Week 11. He has five touchdown passes and one interception in his past three games, but fantasy owners should steer clear of him this week.

QBColin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick

30 pass yards, 25 rush yards

If Alex Smith (concussion) can't play Monday night, the 49ers will turn to Kaepernick. That means those planning to start Smith should pick up Kaepernick as a backup just in case. If Kaepernick does start, he'll have a tough time against an opportunistic Bears defense.

RBFrank Gore

Frank Gore

65 rush yards, 3 rec, 25 rec yards

Against the Rams, Gore came close to registering his fourth 100-yard rushing game this season. He did score his fifth touchdown of the season, but he faces a Bears defense in Week 11 that has allowed just two rushing touchdowns this year.

RBKendall Hunter

Kendall Hunter

25 rush yards, 2 rec, 15 rec yards

Hunter had a quiet Week 10, with three carries for 15 yards against the Rams. The Bears pose a much tougher challenge, so Hunter is best used as Frank Gore's handcuff off the bench.

WRMichael Crabtree

Michael Crabtree

5 rec, 45 yards, rec TD

Crabtree caught five passes for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Rams in Week 10. He now has four touchdowns in his past five games, but his quarterback is dealing with a concussion. That, coupled with the Bears' defense, makes him a riskier fantasy starter in Week 11.

WRMario Manningham

Mario Manningham

3 rec, 35 yards

Manningham had one of his quietest games of the year against the Rams in Week 10, with one catch for 20 yards. He could be in trouble in Week 11, both because of the tough defensive matchup and because he'll be catching balls from a quarterback trying to come back from a concussion.

TEVernon Davis

Vernon Davis

4 rec, 45 yards

Davis is struggling right now, with nine catches for 101 yards and no touchdowns in his past three games. The Bears are a tough defense against tight ends, allowing only two touchdowns to the position this season, so he's unlikely to break out of his slump this week.

KDavid Akers

David Akers

PAT, 3 FGs

Akers started the season so strong, much like all of last season, but now he has just six field goals and 13 extra points in his past five games. He's still a good fantasy start, but the scoring opportunities are going to be few and far between against the Bears' defense.

DEFENSE

INT, 3 Sacks

The 49ers had an uncharacteristically bad day against the Rams, allowing them to score 24 points and nearly pass for 300 yards. They face a tougher matchup against the Bears Monday night, but this defensive unit is still too good to sit -- especially if Jason Campbell starts over Jay Cutler (concussion).
