Week 12: vs Arizona Cardinals

All WR vs ARI

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The last time these teams met (Week 3) Colin Kaepernick and company got stomped 7-47. Kaepernick has since been placed on IR due to a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, so nowadays it is Blaine Gabbert's second NFL opportunity with his second NFL Franchise, and it is going about as well as his old Jaguars 'fans' expected. After upsetting the Falcons two games ago, Gabbert was blown out 13-29 at Seattle last week, though he did do a credible job passing the football on the stat sheet (22/34 for 264 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown) the 49ers were never in contention last week. Vance McDonald (four targets for 4/65/1 receiving) is making some noise now that ex-49er Vernon Davis is out of his way on the depth chart - and Anquan Boldin got within spitting distance of 100 yards last week with seven targets for 5/93/0 receiving. There may be some hope for fantasy owners invested in the 49ers' passing attack as the team is almost certain to play from behind this week. The Cardinals' pass D is ranked eighth in the NFL averaging 228.7 net yards allowed per game, with 16 passing scores handed out vs. 14 interceptions (tied for second in the NFL) and 19 sacks (tied for 23rd) generated to date. Over the past four weeks (three games), this team has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (23.8 on average); 13th in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends (9.9); and is in the middle of the league in fantasy points given out to opposing wide receivers (20.7,18th). Last week, Cincinnati managed 22/39 for 278 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown with four sacks taken for -37 yards. Two games ago, Russell Wilson was held to 13/32 for 228 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown. This looks like a tough matchup for Gabbert, but it is not an impossible scenario for him.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 8 vs STL (10 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)

Despite having not been on an NFL field in over a year, Simpson easily fit into Anquan Boldin's spot in the 49ers' pass offense. He consistently showed the ability to get open against both of the Rams' cornerbacks, and would have had a more productive day if Kaepernick was more accurate with his passes. Catching only three passes in that many targets was by no means Simpson's fault, as he only had one drop in the game.
