Week 4: vs Dallas Cowboys
All WR vs DAL
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The word out of San Francisco on Tuesday, September 27 is that Blaine Gabbert will remain the starting quarterback, in part, because he's better in practice than Colin Kaepernick. However, if the pass offense continues to struggle in the games (because those are what count), then Kaepernick might wiggle his way past Gabbert on the depth chart and become the starter again - stay tuned to see how Gabbert responds to this challenge. Gabbert didn't help his cause with 14/25 for 119 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown at Seattle this past weekend (an 18-37 loss despite the Seahawks losing starting quarterback Russell Wilson to a sprained MCL in his knee). Torrey Smith (four targets for 3/35/0 receiving) was the top wide receiver for San Francisco last weekend. There wasn't much to write home about in fantasy terms on this unit last weekend.
The Dallas pass D gave up for 30/49 for 317 net passing yards, two TDs and zero interceptions with zero sacks of Brian Hoyer last Sunday. So far this year Dallas is 23rd in the NFL averaging 290.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with six passing scores given out vs. two interceptions and four sacks generated. This is not a feared secondary, friends - they have averaged 22.7 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (10th-most in the NFL); and 22.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (13th-least); with 14.2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (third-most) over the first three weeks of the season.
Gabbert comes into this game cold, but should have a 50-50 shot at a bounce-back game against the mediocre Cowboys' secondary.
