The lovefest for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts III begins and fantasy editor Marcas Grant joins the guys for some more wild times in the Fantasy Football Cantina.
It’s no surprise that Colin Kaepernick is the talk of the NFL on Tuesday. After all, when you carve up the league’s leading defense with 243 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns in your first-ever NFL start, you’re going to turn a few heads. But it begs the question … should you pick him up off the waiver wire? Undoubtedly, Kaepernick looked fantastic on Monday night. But Alex Smith has been pretty good all season long, completing 70 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. Therein lies the rub. Smith isn’t a fantasy monster (he ranks just 24th among QBs in 2012) but the Niners are winning with him under center. Jim Harbaugh might not hate your […]

In today’s Three and Out: Fred Jackson could return for the Bills in Week 12 while the Eagles and Broncos are searching for other running back options.
C.J. Spiller discusses the Bill’s season and what he expects the rest of the season.
Greg Schiano discusses his dynamic rookie running back Doug Martin.
Call off the search, we’ve found Vernon Davis! And it turns it, Colin Kaepernick knew where he was the entire time. Just when we were ready to write off Davis for good, he comes out with a monster performance against the Monsters of the Midway.
The San Francisco 49ers host the Chicago Bears in a highly anticipated matchup among two of the league’s best teams. Both teams are coming off of disappointing performances in their prior outing; San Francisco is coming off of a frustrating tie against St. Louis, and Chicago lost a sloppy 13-6 slugfest against Houston. With Alex Smith out, it becomes especially important that the 49ers gets their ground game on track to make things easier on second-year QB Colin Kaepernick as he makes his first NFL start. Behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter, the 49ers lead the NFL averaging 170.2 rushing yards per game on a staggering 5.61 yards per carry, and look to exploit a Bears defense that has had […]
Can Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman fill the void left by Willis McGahee?

Not sure what Chad Henne is smirking about here, he knows he plays for the Jaguars, right? He instantly looks like every bad guy from a movie based in college. He could easily be the president of the Alpha Betas and quarterback at Adams College if they ever want to do a remake of “Revenge of the Nerds.”
What should fantasy football owners do now that Willis McGahee is out for the rest of the fantasy season?
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is expected to miss the next 4 to 6 weeks with a broken forearm.

There is a segment we run every Monday called #thathelpsnoone where we celebrate the curtain jerkers who rob precious fantasy points from the guys we actually started. And if we wanted to, we could have filled the entire hour on Monday with #thathelpsnoone and we’re not even talking about the San Diego Chargers.
Historically, players who are featured on the cover of the “Madden NFL” franchise experience significant drops in their offensive production. NFL.com is tracking the performance of Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions over the course of the 2012 season because we believe Johnson will debunk the Madden curse. The Detroit Lions, last in the NFC North and rapidly following out of the playoff race, faced a must-win game against division rival Green Bay Packers. Megatron needed a big game. ————————————————————————————————————————————– FIRST QUARTER ————————————————————————————————————————————– Late in the first quarter, a failed fourth down conversion by the Green Bay Packers leads to this big play by Calvin Johnson. Cue tape! The Detroit Lions are in the red zone with Matt Stafford‘s 53-yard pass to Megatron. […]
