49ers take a step back defensively
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After allowing an average of 16.6 points on 308.4 yards in their previous five games, the 49ers gave up 38 on 446 to the Chargers in Week 16. It was only the second time they allowed more than 30 points in a game, and the 446 yards were a season worst.

From a Fantasy perspective, though, their DST still turned in a fine performance thanks to three interceptions, including one that Antoine Bethea returned for a touchdown in the second quarter. The 49ers also had two sacks.

The 49ers DST has scored double-digit Fantasy points in six of the last eight weeks and showed in this one that it's still capable of big numbers even when the defense isn't at its best. Keep it active for a favorable matchup Week 17 against Arizona.

49ers defense bounces back, still takes the loss
by Chris Towers |

The 49ers defense held up their end of the bargain, but didn't get much help in a 17-7 loss to the Seahawks in Week 15.

The 49ers held the Seahawks to just 290 yards of total offense in the game, including just 138 through the air. They also did a good job pressuring Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who was sacked five times and intercepted once.

The 49ers DST unit had failed to get to double digits in Fantasy scoring in each of their previous two games, before getting their Sunday. They will look to do so again in Week 16, with the Chargers on the schedule.
