Week 13: vs Seattle Seahawks

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Seattle and San Francisco are knotted up at 7-4 behind divisional leader Arizona (9-2) - this is the first of two scheduled clashes between these divisional rivals (with profound playoff implications for both), which will go down in Levi's Stadium on Thanksgiving night. Colin Kaepernick had a solid (but not spectacular) game passing the football against the Washington defense - 20/29 for 256 yards, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -10 yards - adding 9/14/0 rushing to the team effort. It was the fifth straight game in which he's thrown one TD and also the fifth straight game in which he's rushed for less than 25 yards. This year, games like this are what we've come to expect out of Kaepernick. Respectable, but not spectacular. He is back to relying on Anquan Boldin (12 targets for 9/137/1 receiving this week; 32 targets for 20/285/2 receiving over the past three games) and Michael Crabtree (seven targets for 5/58/0 receiving last week; 23 for 11/205/1 over the past three contests) as his top receivers - the dalliance with Brandon Lloyd and Steve Johnson fantasy owners saw earlier in the year is mostly a thing of the past. Boldin is the best option for fantasy owners entering Week 13. Vernon Davis has seen 15 targets over the last three games, but has only converted 5/37/0 and has faded from relevance as a fantasy tight end. The Seahawks' pass D ate up the Larry-Fitzgerald-less Cardinals on Sunday, holding Arizona to 14/26 for 140 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -9 yards. Alex Smith only attempted 16 passes two weeks ago (11/16 for 108 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, with zero sacks taken) - lately, the Seahawks' pass D is back to their shut-down ways of 2013. They rank third in the NFL averaging 208.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with 15 passing scores given up vs. seven interceptions (23rd in the NFL) and 16 sacks (29th) generated this season. Kaepernick and company have some tough customers arriving at Levi's Stadium on Thanksgiving night. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs NO (3 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

Johnson's 20 yard reception came on a broken play of sorts. With Kaepernick scrambling Johnson did an excellent job of keeping his route alive and worked his way wide open on the left sideline for a big gain.

2014 Week 11 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Johnson's only target came on a short out that he caught for an 8 yard gain on the sideline. He was not a big part of the game plan.
