The San Francisco 49ers are one game back in the NFC West and traveling to Tennessee to take on the 3-3 Titans. The Niners have won three games in a row and look to make it four against a not so elite Tennessee team with backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick manning the ship. With the Seattle Seahawks having a one game lead in the NFC West, and a very winnable game this week against the Arizona Cardinals, the Niners need to come away with a win to keep pace with the division leading Seahawks.
San Francisco 49ers: Colin Kaepernick hasn't been the same guy we saw in week 1 or last season in terms of fantasy football. This is mostly a product of the lack of receiving options that the Niners have. The Titans secondary has been better than expected and this week could be a risky play for Kaepernick. Frank Gore has turned it up the last three weeks after getting off to a very slow start. Gore's performance has been a key factor in the Niners recent success. The Titans are giving up 4.4 yards per carry and Gore should have another great game with at least 20 touches. Anquan Boldin is going to be shadowed by Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner and will probably struggle to separate once again this week. Boldin is another risky play. Vernon Davis absolutely exploded last week and put up a ridiculous 8/180/2 stat line. Davis is an obvious must start week in and week out.

Tennessee Titans: Ryan Fitzpatrick has been the starting quarterback since starter Jake Locker went down with injury. Locker is out again this week making Fitzpatrick the starter once again. Chris Johnson is off to his usual slow start once again this season and will continue that struggle this week against a San Francisco rush defense that has improved every week. Kendall Wright has been the perfect fit for Fitzpatrick's skill set and is the only Titans wide receiver worth playing every week as a flex play. Nate Washington has been too inconsistent to play on a weekly basis and is more of a deep route runner, something that Fitzpatrick is not very good at throwing.
