Either 49ers QB over Freeman?

Postby MRiH » Wed Nov 21, 2012 2:45 am

I NEED to win this week for a chance to make the playoffs. Most of the season I had Rivers and Freeman as my QBs but when Freeman got hot I began using him and dropped Rivers. This week Freeman plays ATL who opposing QBs haven't had their beat game against. (Firsthand experience with Rivers only getting 4 pts against them)

My question is regardless of who starts at QB for the 9ers this week should I start them over Freeman in a fantasy "must-win"? I'm eager to see how Kaepernick would play. He's almost like an extra RB. Alex Smith, if he starts, had an outstanding game against NO last year in the playoffs. Don't know what to expect from Freeman really.

Help is appreciated, Thanks!

Saints defense is atrocious, so any Niners QB is gonna throw a lot of yards. I think Kaepernick proved himself to be a viable starter, so yeah whichever one starts, I'd take him over Josh Freeman.

You'll have to monitor who the 9er's end up starting but I may roll the dice with him if Kaeper gets the nod. Atlanta is in the top 10 for pass defense so go with Kaeper if he's starting. I'm guessing Smith isn't available as a FA

Thanks for your help

49ers love running game than passing game, they also don't want to let Brees get ball. IMO Freeman is a better choice.

Go with Freeman. He's been more consistent than Smith and we just can't be sure about Kaepernick (sp?) yet. With weapons like VJax downfield and Doug Martin receiving out of the backfield, there is always potential for some big plays. Thanks for checking mine out!

I would go with Koepernick. The Saints will score a lot and their defense will give UP a lot of scores. It will be a shootout and the 49ers will be forced to pass a LOT.
