49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had another sub-par day, going 17 of 31 for 127 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Dynasty owners of Kap can’t wait for Michael Crabtree’s return. It might also be a good time to buy-low on Kaepernick for trigger-happy owners.
Saints running back Pierre Thomas had another solid outing with 49 yards rushing on 11 carries to go along with five catches for 35 yards. Thomas is a product of the Saints offense and about as boom-or-bust as it gets. But he’s still valuable as long as he’s in New Orleans.
49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman had a big day with 15 tackles. Bowman continues to outplay other 49ers linebackers, including Patrick Willis, and should be a LB1 for many, many years.
