Found December 08, 2012 on FF Locker Room:
Fantasy Football News - 49ers wide receiver, Mario Manningham, is doubtful for Sunday’s matchup versus the Miami Dolphins dealing with a shoulder injury. Randy Moss will likely take over as the #2. FFLockerRoom Take - Mario is the second leading receiver behind Michael Crabtree with 41 receptions on the year. The 49ers and Colin Kaepernick have relied on Michael Crabtree recently and that looks to continue in week 14. I would expect that Randy Moss starts opposite Crabtree and will see a few more targets. I would also expect Vernon Davis to have some more looks and should possibly move up the TE rankings based on this news. Also getting more playing time as a receiver could be Ted Ginn. For those that are looking for a deep flyer or possible dynasty pickup, 49ers first round draft pick, AJ Jenkins, is probably going to see the field for the first time in his career. He’s been slow to develop in year one, but if he and Kaepernick developed any kind of rapport while taking second team...

Brandon Jacobs lashes out at fans on Twitter

San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs didn’t imagine that he’d be riding the bench this season when he signed on with the 49ers as a free agent this past offseason, after a successful career with the Giants. I don’t understand why people are angry at me because I wanna do what I am paid to do, I am a competitive person, I think people should be mad if I didn’t...

Brandon Jacobs is an angry man, but doesn't understand why people are angry at him

San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs is mad. He's not getting enough playing time with the team and he's sick of all the criticism he gets for voicing his opinion. “I don’t understand why people are angry at me because I wanna do what I am paid to do," Jacobs wrote on Twitter. "I am a competitive person, I think people should be mad if I didn...

49ers move to 9-3-1 with win over Dolphins

The 49ers improved to 9-3-1 and still keep distance ahead of Seattle and the No.2 seed. However if the offense doesn’t get together and be more consistent, it will be hard to keep that No.2 spot, let alone win the West. Colin Kaepernick finished the day 18 of 23 for 183 and no touchdowns or interceptions. It was very Alexesque, that is until he scored a touchdown on a 50 yard run...

Gore, Brown set to play Sunday for 49ers

Running back Frank Gore and cornerback Tarell Brown took a little time off to heal nagging injuries this week, but both are expected to play when the San Francisco 49ers host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon...

Miami Dolphins at San Francisco 49ers: Week 14 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (5-7) at San Francisco 49ers (8-3) The 49ers lost to the Rams last week in St. Louis, which has gotten a lot of Alex Smith supporters saying “I told you so,” questioning Jim Harbaugh’s decision to bench Alex Smith for Colin Kaepernick. These people seem to be forgetting that Smith was losing to those same Rams at home when he got hurt and that he also lost to...

Kaepernick's TD run keys 49ers' victory

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers were clinging to a 20-13 lead late in the fourth quarter Sunday against Miami when they called a read-option run, a play quarterback Colin Kaepernick could run in his sleep. Kaepernick, who rushed for 4,112 yards and 59 touchdowns in college for Nevada, faked a handoff on third-and-five to running back Frank Gore, pulled the ball back and...
