49ers Bench QB Colin Kaepernick for Blaine Gabbert

It just continues to get worse and worse for the San Francisco 49ers.  Carlos Hyde is injured, Reggie Bush is out for the season, Vernon Davis was just traded and now Colin Kaepernick has been benched for Blaine Gabbert!  Gabbert will get the start in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Atlanta has allowed just Eli Manning and Brian Hoyer to throw more than one touchdown in a game this season.  Drew Brees and Sam Bradford are the only QBs to throw for 300+ passing yards.

Kaepernick has been bad, no dobut, but Gabbert might be the worst QB in the NFL.  Kaep has thrown 5 interceptions this seaosn and four came in one game against the Arizona Cardinals.  The strangest thing about his season is that he has rushed for just 61 yards in the four games after he rushed for 57 in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers.

The San Francisco 49ers do not have any players worth owning in fantasy football unless Carlos Hyde is 100% healthy.
