Thinking 'Bout Thursday - St. Louis Rams vs San Francisco 49ers

The St. Louis Rams have major offensive line issues.  That is clearly visible when watching 3 and 4 man rush after rush get to Sam Bradford and Daryl Richardson fight for 3 yards at a time.  Bradford has now been sacked 11 times in the last two games!  At this point in time, I would suggest staying away from all Rams players for fantasy football.  The only way you can tell yourself it's ok is if you are in a 14+ team PPR league and you are playing Austin Pettis or Tavon Austin.

St. Louis rushed 19 times for 18 yards.  Ewww.

Colin Kaepernick rebounded nicely in this one completing 15 of his 23 pass attempts, for 167 yards, finding Anquan Boldin (5 catches 90 yards) and Vernon Davis (2 catches 18 yards) for TDs.  This on a night where there Niners running backs were having a field day on the ground!  Frank Gore took 20 carries 153 yards and found the endzone, Kendall Hunter added 49 yards on 11 carries and a score and Anthony Dixon vultured a 1 yard TD away from Gore.

This was not a pretty game by any means, but the important players put up some decent fantasy points which is all we care about! 

What did you take away from Thursday Night?
