Time for your 2 Minute Drill 49ers Rams edition!
We’re learning that the Thursday night game produces lackluster results on the offensive end with lower point and yardage totals compared to the Sunday games. So here we go with your fantasy players from them San Francisco 49ers
Yikes the fall from fantasy grace has not been pretty. However, I still believe in the guy, heck in the league I care about the most the team name is the Kaeptain so you could say I’m a fan. He will rebound, but I just don’t know if it’s in this game. Here’s where my confidence level is: I’m strongly considering benching the Kaeptain for EJ Manuel just because this is a Thursday game.
Let’s say 80-90 yards and a score is your ceiling here. I think he’ll come close and let’s face it, you wouldn’t feel confident benching him in favor of someone else.
Boy oh Boy that week 1 explosion seems so long ago. He will be seeing ultimate trash talker Cortland Finnegan this week and I think he comes away with a respectable showing for a WR 2 and a good day for a flex player depending on your roster construction.
He’s suiting up today but with the Rams allowing an average of 55 yards to the TE you should be looking elsewhere for production today.
The 49ers D/ST
A mild play here and you’d be counting on a pick or two from Sam Bradford so if you have them you’re probably rolling with them anyway.
How about the Rams for tonight?
He’s a 2 QB league option only. He’ll have a solid game but beyond a BYE week fill in he has no value to you.
He’s going to play tonight and with Isaiah Pead out he’ll get his but I really like Benny Cunningham to do his thing. A way to check my temp on Cunningham? I have Marshawn Lynch, Doug Martin, Giovani Bernard, and Eddie Lacy as Rbs on a team and I’m thinking of dropping Willis McGahee to stash Benny.
Better in PPR than anything else but don’t be surprised if he finally gets deployed in this divisional matchup like the Rams have been talking about. get him in your flex and be happy.
A stiff matchup this week. I think just like Davis on the other team that you should be avoiding the TEs in this game. Go out and grab Heath Miller or Brandon Myers, even Charles Clay if he’s still there.
That’s our time so get out there and fix those lineups, stash Benny Cunningham, and enjoy the action!
