Luck threw for 321 yards and 7.5 yards per attempt against a solid Miami defense last week, but he'll find things a bit tougher in San Francisco. A large chunk of his stats will come in garbage time.
Abridged reaction to the huge Richardson deal: He's better off in Indy, but they've had line troubles and he'll have to share the ball with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton. Don't expect much this week. He doesn't have a ton of time to learn the playbook and is going up against the 49ers.
So much for Bradshaw as a fantasy starter. After Wednesday's blockbuster that brought Trent Richardson to Indy, Bradshaw's an afterthought.
The Dolphins held Wayne to five catches for 46 yards. He'll have a productive fantasy day this week, but it won't be an efficienct game for the Indy passing offense as a whole.
Hilton had a big game against the Dolphins, catching six passes for 124 yards. He'll be quiet most of the day, but make up for it in garbage time.
With Dwayne Allen out, Fleener caught four balls for 69 yards and a TD. Don't expect the same against the 49ers and their strong linebackers.
Vinatieri connected on 2-of-3 field goal attempts, missing from 52 yards. I do not like him as a regular starter.
There are a lot of problems on this defense that are already showing, and it has only faced the Raiders and Dolphins.
The Seahawks embarrassed Kaepernick last week, but he'll bounce back in a big way against an inferior opponent.
Gore is always going to carry value in this offense, but I fear his days as a serious fantasy weapon have passed.
Hunter had one carry for negative seven yards against the Seahawks. Yeah, you don't want to be starting him under any circumstances.
Richard Sherman matched Boldin's physicality, limiting him to one catch for seven yards. I almost feel bad for the Indianapolis defense. Almost.
Williams had four receptions for 39 yards last week, though he won't be a fantasy option unless a series of injuries befall the Niners.
Seattle totally negated the San Francisco passing game, but I'm betting it gets back on track this week.
Dawson will be the beneficiary of a big game from the 49ers offense.
The Niners shut down Russell Wilson and sacked him four times. Coming off a loss, expect a huge performance at home.
