After yet another stinker last week, Kaepernick simply should not be thought of as a starter in traditional one-QB leagues.
Gore ran well in a tough matchup last week, picking up 82 yards on 16 carries against the Panthers. The Saints allow five yards per carry to opposing running backs.
Manningham caught three passes for 30 yards in his first game of the season last week. Until this passing game shows signs of life, he should not be on the radar in fantasy leagues.
Boldin has suffered right along with the San Francisco passing offense. Keep him firmly planted on your bench this week.
Davis' status remains uncertain for Sunday, but it sounds like he will play. If he's your guy, you should feel comfortable rolling with him.
Dawson went 3-for-3 on field goals last week, including one from 53 yards out. He's a solid play against the Saints.
This is a week where I'd consider benching the Niners for another option. Drew Brees has this offense clicking, as usual.
Brees had a monster day against the Cowboys in Week 10, throwing for 392 yards and four scores. You know what to do here.
Sproles got himself back in the offense last week, reclaiming the role as pass-catching back from Pierre Thomas. He's a solid play this week.
Thomas is still the No. 1 runner in New Orleans, despite Mark Ingram's huge game last week. He's a low-end RB2 this week.
Ingram had 145 yards and a score on 14 carries, but that was largely dictated by game situation. I do not expect a repeat against San Francisco.
Colston came back from a knee injury to catch seven passes for 107 yards and a score. I consider him a WR2 this week.
Moore was the one receiver who didn't get in on the fun last week. Drew Brees has a way of evening that out.
Stills rode a 52-yard TD to a solid game last week. I wouldn't count on that against the 49ers.
The 49ers have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends. Yeah, I'm still starting Graham with confidence.
Hartley missed his only field-goal attempt last week and is now 16-for-22 on the season.
With the 49ers struggling to throw the ball, the Saints could be a decent stream play this week.
