Extent of Vernon Davis' injury 'not fully known'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the extent of tight end Vernon Davis' back injury is "not fully known," reports the Bay Area News Group. After the Week 4 win over the Eagles, Davis said he was experiencing back spasms.

The 49ers host the Chiefs on Sunday.

Michael Crabtree's foot something to monitor
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Wide receiver Michael Crabtree has a history of foot problems, having had two surgeries on his left foot since 2009, so his exit in the first quarter Week 4 against Philadelphia because of an issue with the same foot, as brief as it was, is cause for concern in Fantasy.

He seemed to move well enough after his return, but judging by the treatment he received on the sidelines, rolling a ball on the bottom of his foot, I doubt we've heard the last of this injury. He may have some chronic soreness in there that will send him to the sidelines with each flareup.

That's complete speculation, of course, but speculation is part of the game. What it means for Fantasy owners is that they may want to consider shopping Crabtree -- not now, when the first thing the other party would do is go to his player page and read this update, but after his next big game. He had two in a row prior to this one, so another one is coming.

The goal, of course, isn't to dump Crabtree but to use his value to secure something a little bit safer, especially if you're relying on him as your No. 1 wide receiver.

49ers DST has throwback performance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After a couple of so-so performances the last couple weeks, the 49ers showed they've still got it on the defensive side of the ball Week 4 against Philadelphia, limiting one of the league's most prolific offenses over the first three weeks to 21 points on 213 yards. They intercepted quarterback Nick Foles twice and sacked him once. They also recovered two fumbles.

The four turnovers equaled their total from Week 1 at Dallas, but they had a total of one in the two games in between.

The 49ers DST has what should be a favorable matchup Week 5 against Kansas City, so now isn't the time to shy away from it.

Frank Gore shows why you don't sell him short
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

I got a tweet from someone earlier this week asking if he should drop Frank Gore for Doug Martin. I told him to add Martin. That was the easy part. But for Gore? I just couldn't get behind that.

Yeah, he's old and not all that exciting, but his age didn't show up in his numbers last year. And even though he didn't have big numbers through the first three weeks, he didn't cede carries to anyone else and still averaged a respectable 4.0 yards per carry.

As the primary ball carrier on a team with a still-developing passing game, Gore was bound to have a game like he had Week 4 against Philadelphia, rushing for 119 yards and scoring on an incredible across-the-field throw from quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the second quarter. And while these types of performances shouldn't be the expectation for him, he's bound to have more in his future.

If nothing else, you'll be glad you own him for this stretch of the season when every team has a bye. He certainly isn't a bad choice for Week 5 vs. Kansas City.

Colin Kaepernick a worthy Start of the Week
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick did as he was told Week 4 against Philadelphia, delivering a fine performance as Jamey Eisenberg's Start of the Week (baby).

I include the "baby" because it's what he yells on Sunday afternoons (after "start of the week," of course) whenever his Start of the Week does something notable. It's fairly amusing.

I think it's worth noting, though, that while Kaepernick's Week 4 performance was his best of the season, it wasn't his best by much, at least not in standard CBSSports.com leagues. He scored 23 points after earlier outputs of 21 and 20 points.

So in three of his four games, he has scored at least 20 points even though he has contributed multiple touchdowns in only two of them. His rushing ability makes all the difference. Sunday's performance was his third straight with at least 50 yards on the ground. That's basically like another touchdown.

So has Kaepernick achieved must-start status? I don't know if I'd go there yet. I'm always a little skeptical of a quarterback who doesn't do it all with his arm, perhaps for no good reason. But if nothing else, he's looking more consistent than he was last year and like a good bet for Week 5 against Kansas City.
