The St. Louis Rams host the San Francisco 49ers at 1:00PM in a Week 13 divisional matchup. With the fantasy playoffs around the corner, matchups are more important than ever. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 13, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.
San Francisco 49ers
Colin Kaepernick has delivered on the hype so far, and should keep rolling against the Rams' 18th-ranked defense. His deep arm and running threat gives the Niners offense an extra dimension they never had with Alex Smith. It helps that he has Frank Gore to back him up with the run game. Gore has not slowed down one bit this season.
The only real concern is Vernon Davis, who was held off the statsheet last week. He can produce like a TE1 in any given week, but is far too inconsistent to rely on weekly. Take your chances here. Other than that, this team is a well-oiled machine.
St. Louis Rams
Danny Amendola is doubtful with a foot injury and played only seven snaps last week. I don't expect him to be a fantasy factor even if active. That creates problems for Sam Bradford, who could be without his favorite target once again and is now going up against the fierce Niner defense. He's not a fantasy option this week.
The only player I can recommend here is maybe Steven Jackson, and even that's iffy. There are very few appealing options here.
