Frank Gore takes advantage of matchup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Going against a defense that was strong against the pass but weak against the run, the 49ers clearly made running back Frank Gore a bigger part of their game plan Week 16 against San Diego, giving him eight carries on the team's first three drives. He finished with 26 for 158 yards, both season highs.

Of course, the increased workload may have had something to do with the absence of backup Carlos Hyde, who had been cutting into Gore's carries in recent weeks, with moderate effectiveness. Hyde is sidelined for an unspecified amount of time with an ankle injury.

Gore's performance may have earned him a bigger workload Week 17 against Arizona regardless. The Cardinals defense is kind of the opposite of the Chargers, though. It's much more effective against the run than the pass.

If nothing else, you at least have some hope for Gore making a relevant contribution in Week 17, but because the matchup isn't as favorable, he's still probably a sit in typical 12-team leagues.

Long run doesn't change things for Colin Kaepernick
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colin Kaepernick had another poor passing performance Week 16 against San Diego, throwing for a season-low 114 yards with one touchdown pass. But because he ran for 151 yards, most of which came on a 90-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, he ended up having a standout performance in Fantasy.

But when's the last time you saw a 90-yard run for a quarterback? It doesn't happen every week. Even as athletic as Kaepernick is, his season long was only 23 yards prior to Week 16. That 90-yard touchdown run was a 15-point play in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which means it was responsible for more than half of Kaepernick's 29 Fantasy points. Take it away, and his performance in Week 16 was just as disappointing as in his previous eight games.

Kaepernick hasn't thrown for multiple scores in nine games, averaging 189.9 passing yards during that stretch, and he's averaging just 137.5 passing yards in his last four games. Don't let this performance change your approach to him in the season's final week, when the 49ers visit the Cardinals.

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 K Phil Dawson scores five points vs. Chargers Week 16
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

49ers kicker Phil Dawson made five extra points but missed his only field-goal attempt in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Dawson didn't have much of a shot at converting his lone field-goal try, as his team tasked him with attempting to avoid overtime by nailing a 60-yard field goal at the end of regulation. He didn't come close, and the 49ers went on to lose in overtime.

Dawson has made 23 of his 29 attempts this season and is now 5 for 8 from 50 yards or more. He'll square off with the Cardinals in Week 17.

49ers WR Michael Crabtree plays sparingly vs. Chargers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree managed just one catch for five yards in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Crabtree, who was questionable to play Saturday due to a knee injury, remained on the sidelines for large portions of the game, even donning a baseball cap at one point. It appeared he was set to play only in an emergency situation. However, the receiving corps was struck by multiple injuries, leaving the team to turn to Crabtree late, and he recorded his only catch in overtime.

Crabtree will try and heal up in time to serve a larger role in his team's season finale against the Cardinals in Week 17.
