Week 12 Ride ‘Em Or Hide ‘Em TEs
You don’t need me to tell you to start Graham or Gronk…my mom could figure that out. Let’s look at some other matchups that could be favorable this week:
Juan’s In Tight With
Vernon Davis @ NO
The 49ers finally got Davis involved last week & if Kaepernick is back under center, Davis could be alive in the fantasy game again.
Jermaine Gresham vs Oak
With all the disasters at TE this season, Gresham has proved to be a solid choice for fantasy owners. The Raiders have been giving defense to anyone in a passing offense.
Brandon Myers @ Cin
Myers has been of the most surprising pick ups at the TE position this season. Palmer trusts him and looks to him all over the field.
Dallas Clark @ Atl
Gronk owners could be scrambling this week and Clark could be the guy that fills the void for about 5-7 points.
Scott Chandler @ Ind
Outside of Gronk, the Colts have pretty much stopped every TE they have faced. Chandler has been too u...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
I think Jim Harbaugh has seen Kaepernick at practice the last two years and has been itching to get him into a game. Last week Harbaugh's expectations were met or exceeded and he's ready to move on. I don't think Smith gets back on the field this season.
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57....
For 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, letting Alex Smith sit another week and giving the San Francisco starting job to youngster Colin Kaepernick was probably just good football sense.
But considering Harbaugh made the decision on the eve of Thanksgiving, the situation has become more interesting.
Smith, after all, is the quarterback that Harbaugh defended earlier this season against those...
The San Francisco 49ers will likely employ Colin Kaepernick as the teams quarterback on Sunday. Kaepernick impressed in Monday nights game against the Chicago Bears and all signs point to him being under center again this weekend against New Orleans.
Kaepernick completed 16 of 23 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears on Monday. During the week he has been given...
As most of the pregame buildup indicated, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will make his second consecutive start in New Orleans on Sunday. Multiple reports Sunday morning said Kaepernick is the starter over Alex Smith, who was limited most of last week and didn't play in Monday's 32-7 win over the Chicago Bears. Smith, sidelined with a concussion in...
Adam Dobrowolski explains why quarterback controversy may cost the 49ers a Super Bowl, but keeping future options open is the best long-term solution.
The big story exploding from San Francisco calls for controversy.Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith? The choice is not yours, but still an easy call at this point.Alex Smith has not received medical clearance to play (at the time of this writing). With no time to waste, reports acknowledge that Jim Harbaugh decided to assign the first-string practice snaps to the hot (and healthy) guy...
During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner said that quarterback Colin Kaepernick will start on Sunday against the Saints.

Alex Smith suffered a concussion and was taken out of the game in Week 10 versus the St. Louis Rams, which ended in a 24-24 tie. Backup QB Colin Kaepernick came into that game in relief duty and played decently, completing 11 of 17 for 117 YDS. He also rushed 8 times for 66 YDS and scored a touchdown. These are pretty good numbers considering that his previous work in this...
Even though Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to a win over the Saints, tight end Vernon Davis nevertheless voiced his support for benched starter Alex Smith.
San Francisco 49ers (7-2) at New Orleans Saints (5-5)
Colin Kaepernick will start this one for the 49ers. Kaepernick was incredibly impressive against a tough Bears defense on Monday Night, going 16 of 23 for 243 yards and 2 scores in a 32-7 win over the Jay Cutler-less Bears. Against St. Louis after Alex Smith got hurt, he was also impressive going 11 of 17 for 117 yards, leading...
Despite not naming a starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints, the San Francisco 49ers appear poised to usher in the Colin Kaepernick era in the Bay area. The second year signal caller made a spectacular debut last week against the Chicago Bears and is widely regarded as the future for the franchise than Alex Smith is. The question now has to be asked...
The San Francisco 49ers will play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at the Superdome. The game is scheduled for a 4:25 p.m. EST start time and can be seen in many markets as the late game on FOX.
New Orleans was given up for dead when the season started, now they are one of the most dangerous teams in the league. The 49ers will start Colin Kaepernick at quarterback as they apparently...
