Six teams on a bye week and the multitude of NFL stars battling injuries has made the start ‘em, sit ‘em decisions in Week 8 among the toughest that fantasy football owners have faced all season.

Colin Kaepernick, QB: Start vs. Jaguars Fantasy owners who expected a breakout season from Kaepernick have been disappointed so far. San Francisco has opted to make starting running back Frank Gore the focal point of the offense over the last few weeks, and the decision has resulted in four straight wins. This week, Kaepernick faces a Jaguars defense that has the third-fewest interceptions and the fourth...

Seattle Seahawks Heavily Favoured on the Road Again

It can’t just be 49ers fans who must tire of hearing about The 12th Man.
