  • Stevie Johnson sees six targets in Week 13
    Stevie Johnson caught 3-of-6 targets for 28 yards Week 13 against the Seahawks

    Advice: Johnson's six targets were tied for the team lead with Brandon Lloyd. Both players saw an increased snap load with Michael Crabtree hampered by a rib injury. Johnson would see his role increase if Crabtree is forced to miss any time, but is still not on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Vernon Davis struggles again Thursday night
    Vernon Davis caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: The season of woe continues. The 49ers have suddenly forgotten how to use Davis, and Colin Kaepernick is playing so poorly it would not matter if they were using him perfectly. Davis is not worth starting in any format and is droppable in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Lloyd inefficient against Seahawks
    Brandon Lloyd caught 1-of-6 targets for six yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: It was an inefficient night for Lloyd, but it was hardly his fault. Kaepernick could not hit the broadside of a barn on Thursday night, missing badly while targeting Lloyd multiple times including on the first interception of the game. The good news is Lloyd saw an expanded role with Michael Crabtree sidelined for a time with a rib injury, and he would appear to be the wide receiver of choice in two-wide sets if Crabtree is forced to miss any time.

  • Carlos Hyde sees eight touches Week 13
    Carlos Hyde rushed five times for 19 yards and caught three passes for 38 yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Hyde was more effective than Frank Gore in this one, but still only managed 3.8 yards per carry against Seattle's stout run defense. Hyde is averaging eight touches a game over his last three and has found the end zone in two of his last four. He will be a RB4 Week 14 against Oakland. Rotoworld.com

  • Frank Gore stifled by Seahawks defense
    Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught one pass for eight yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Gore only saw three carries in the second half as the 49ers attempted to come from behind, and he struggled with the Seahawks' physical front all game. The 11 touches were the lowest for Gore since Week 7 against Denver. He will look to get back on track against Oakland Week 14. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Maclin goes over 1,000 receiving yards
    Jeremy Maclin secured 8-of-10 targets for 108 yards in Thursday's Week 13 win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: It was Maclin's fourth 100-yard game of the season. He also went over 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career. Maclin's highlight was a 58-yard catch and run in the second quarter. He's on pace for 95 receptions and 12 touchdowns this season. Maclin will be a low-end WR1 in Week 14 against Seattle.

  • 49ers' Crabtree briefly exits with rib injury
    Michael Crabtree briefly exited the 49ers' Week 13 game against the Seahawks with what the team called a rib injury.

    Advice: Crabtree was sandwiched between Kam Chancellor and Bobby Wagner after making his first reception. His left leg appeared to buckle underneath the tackle, but he was announced as questionable to return with a rib injury. Crabtree returned to the game on the next series but was limited the rest of the game. Crabtree finished with three catches for 10 yards on three targets. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Sanchez didn't have any turnovers coming off his two interceptions against the Titans. He scored on a two-yard read-option on the Eagles' opening drive, and threw a 27-yard touchdown to Jordan Matthews. Sanchez is averaging 281 yards and has an 8:6 TD/INT ratio in five games (four starts). He'll be a QB2 option in Week 14 against Seattle. Rotoworld.com

    Matt Forte rushed five times for six yards in Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Lions, catching 6-of-9 targets for 52 yards.

    Advice: The Bears didn't even pretend to run the ball against the Lions' fearsome ground defense, dialing up only eight attempts. Forte caught screens and dump-offs, which operated as the Bears' de facto rushing "attack." With 75 percent of the season now in the books, Forte is on pace for 1,971 yards from scrimmage, 104 catches and 11 total touchdowns. Rotoworld.com

  • Stafford carves up Chicago on Thanksgiving
    Matthew Stafford completed 34-of-45 passes for 390 yards and two touchdowns in Detroit's 34-17, Week 13 win over the Bears.

    Advice: Stafford and the Lions walked all over the pathetic Bears, with Stafford rolling up 275 yards and both of his scores before halftime. The game wasn't in doubt after the first quarter. Stafford got off to a shaky start, sloppily sidearming his first pass attempt for a third-down incompletion, but was in the zone thereafter, finding Calvin Johnson 11 times for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Stafford's trust of Megatron in tight coverage is steely. With today arguably the best game of his season, Stafford now gets three more cakewalk matchups for the fantasy playoffs. He'll be an every-week QB1 down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Justin Forsett wants back with Ravens
    Impending free agent Justin Forsett said his preference is to re-sign with the Ravens.

    Advice: It's going to a tricky contract negotiation as Forsett is a 29-year-old running back. He'll want to get paid after playing at a Pro Bowl level for just $730,000 this year, but that's not the way it works at the position. Although Forsett currently ranks third in rushing yards (903), first in YPC among running backs, first in carries of 20+ yards and seventh in PFF's Elusive Rating, he'll have to accept a short-term deal.

    Justin Forsett rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in the Ravens' 34-27, Week 12 win over the Saints on Monday night.

    Advice: He added two catches for eight yards. Rob Ryan's Saints defense came into the night allowing 4.3 YPC, 11th-worst in the league. Meanwhile, Baltimore has the league's ninth-ranked rushing offense. The Ravens' mauling offensive line pushed the New Orleans front around all night, creating gaping holes for Forsett, who walked in untouched on his 13- and 20-yard touchdowns. His longest run of the night came on the Ravens' opening play, when Forsett busted through a mammoth hole for 38 yards. Forsett will remain an RB1 next week vs. San Diego. Rotoworld.com

  • Gore goes 13-39 against Redskins
    Frank Gore managed 39 yards on 13 carries in the 49ers' Week 12 victory over the Redskins.

    Advice: The 49ers predictably had very little success running the ball on Washington's stout front. Gore contributed to San Francisco's turnover-filled day with a lost fumble in the fourth quarter. He was also "vultured" by Carlos Hyde on a fourth-quarter TD run, which proved the game winner. With a matchup against the Seahawks on deck, Gore will be a dicey bet as more than a low-expectations RB2/flex on Thanksgiving night. Gore is still a rock-solid all-around football player, but he's understandably lost a lot of "juice" as a runner during his age-31 season. He also wore down during last year's stretch run.

Crabtree was effective with his opportunities but failed to register big plays against the Redskins' soft pass defense. Still, we've seen enough progress from Crabtree in recent weeks that he's earned a weekly WR3 place in fantasy lineups.

After averaging 10.3 targets per game in Foles' eight starts, he's at 8.6 in Sanchez starts.

  • Matthew Stafford struggles mightily @ NE
    Matthew Stafford completed just 18-of-46 throws for 264 yards and an interception in the Lions' Week 12 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: The Lions' offense has been all kinds of out of sorts this season. That continued Sunday as Detroit was unable to get anything going outside the numbers versus RCB Brandon Browner and LCB Darrelle Revis. Stafford played wildly and panicked, and put a stamp on another miserable game with a fourth-quarter duck interception "complete" to Patriots CB Logan Ryan. Although Stafford has been a major 2014 disappointment, he has a favorable enough schedule to finish strong, facing the Bears twice, the Buccaneers, and the Vikings in the final month of the fantasy football season. He'll be a borderline QB1, albeit with top-shelf QB1 upside on Thanksgiving against Chicago. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Sanchez was not particularly sharp, making a fistful of ill-advised throws -- two of which were picked off. But in this Chip Kelly (god of offense) scheme, it doesn't matter much. Just like Nick Foles, the sheer number of plays combined with a unique ability to get receivers open leads to big-time box scores. Sanchez has now started three games as an Eagle and produced three 300-yard days to go with five touchdowns and four interceptions during those starts. He'll be a reasonable QB1 start at Dallas on Thanksgiving. Rotoworld.com

    49ers coach Jim Harbaugh feels like Vernon Davis is "ready to break out."

    Advice: Harbaugh used a confusing olive jar analogy in his rambling explanation, but the point was clear. Whether or not the breakout is actually coming is less clear. The 49ers have been forcing the ball to Davis over the last several weeks, but he has only managed four catches and 34 yards total over the last three games. Traditionally dominant in the red zone, Davis has not even been targeted inside the 20 since Week 1. Davis is too risky to play in seasonal leagues, but could be worth a punt in daily formats.
