New Orleans Saints
vs
San Francisco 49ers
Superdome | Sunday, Nov. 17 | 04:25 PM EST (FOX)

San Francisco 49ers

    1. Colin Kaepernick
    2. Colin
      Kaepernick
      QB
    3. PASS YDS176
    4. PASS TD0
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS22
    7. RUSH TD0

    After yet another stinker last week, Kaepernick simply should not be thought of as a starter in traditional one-QB leagues.

    1. Frank Gore
    2. Frank
      Gore
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS122
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Mario Manningham
    2. Mario
      Manningham
      WR
    3. REC YDS46
    4. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Anquan Boldin
    2. Anquan
      Boldin
      WR
    3. REC YDS37
    4. REC TD0

    Boldin has suffered right along with the San Francisco passing offense. Keep him firmly planted on your bench this week.

    1. Vernon Davis
    2. Vernon
      Davis
      TE
    3. REC YDS54
    4. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Phil Dawson
    2. Phil
      Dawson
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    Dawson went 3-for-3 on field goals last week, including one from 53 yards out. He's a solid play against the Saints.

    1. San Francisco 49ers
    2. PTS ALLOWED31
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    This is a week where I'd consider benching the Niners for another option. Drew Brees has this offense clicking, as usual.

New Orleans Saints

    1. Drew Brees
    2. Drew
      Brees
      QB
    3. PASS YDS325
    4. PASS TD4
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Brees had a monster day against the Cowboys in Week 10, throwing for 392 yards and four scores. You know what to do here.

    1. Darren Sproles
    2. Darren
      Sproles
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS16
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS52
    6. REC TD1

    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.

    1. Pierre Thomas
    2. Pierre
      Thomas
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS49
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Mark Ingram
    2. Mark
      Ingram
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS22
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    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.

    1. Marques Colston
    2. Marques
      Colston
      WR
    3. REC YDS67
    4. REC TD1

    Colston came back from a knee injury to catch seven passes for 107 yards and a score. I consider him a WR2 this week.

    1. Lance Moore
    2. Lance
      Moore
      WR
    3. REC YDS45
    4. REC TD1

    Moore was the one receiver who didn't get in on the fun last week. Drew Brees has a way of evening that out.

    1. Kenny Stills
    2. Kenny
      Stills
      WR
    3. REC YDS39
    4. REC TD0

    Stills rode a 52-yard TD to a solid game last week. I wouldn't count on that against the 49ers.

    1. Jimmy Graham
    2. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    3. REC YDS103
    4. REC TD1

    The 49ers have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends. Yeah, I'm still starting Graham with confidence.

    1. Garrett Hartley
    2. Garrett
      Hartley
      K
    3. PAT4
    4. FG1

    Hartley missed his only field-goal attempt last week and is now 16-for-22 on the season.

    1. New Orleans Saints
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    With the 49ers struggling to throw the ball, the Saints could be a decent stream play this week.
