Week 12: vs Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Colin Kaepernick has been less-than-stellar as a passer in recent weeks, with 15/29 for 193 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions vs. the Giants last week, and 14/32 for 210 yards, one TD and zero interceptions at New Orleans two weeks ago. Though he's getting 'W's in the real NFL, he's not helping fantasy owners very much at this rate. Two receivers have seen over 10 targets over the past two games: Anquan Boldin (20 targets for 11/148/1 receiving) and Michael Crabtree (16 for 6/147/1) - Vernon Davis has seen nine but only managed 2/15/0 as he's sunk into fantasy irrelevance as the season has gone along. The Washington pass D is ranked tenth in the NFL in terms of average net passing yards allowed per game (228.7), but they've allowed a whopping 20 passing scores through 10 games vs. a mere three interceptions generated (tied for dead last in the NFL) and have 25 sacks to their credit (tied for 11th in the NFL). It's not too hard to score on these guys, just ask Josh McCown (15/23 for 281 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions last week, with two sacks taken for -7 yards) and Mike Evans (nine targets for 7/209/2 receiving last week at Washington). This looks like a good matchup for the 49ers' pass attack, even if they have been stuck in the slow lane for several weeks.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs STL (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Davis had another quiet day with two catches in traffic and little chance for yards after the catch. He left at one point to get his finger checked on, but did return and made a grab at the end of the first half.

2014 Week 10 vs NO (4 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Davis was once again not very involved and not very effective. He broke one tackle on his reception over the middle but was then swarmed by defenders. He also dropped a short cross.

2014 Week 11 vs NYG (5 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)

The 49ers made an effort to get Davis involved, but it wasn't to be. They even tried handing the ball off to him on a WR sweep, but that play was called back for holding. Davis had two deep targets but he was overthrown by Kaepernick on both plays. His only catch was a 7 yard grab over the middle in tight coverage.
