We’ve got a special offer going with FanDuel this season, so check that out.
As for the game itself, here’s some info:
Top player: Rams RB Todd Gurley - $8,900
Under pressure. That’s some top billing for a second-year RB, but look at this game and tell me who else should be here. If anything, convince me why it shouldn’t be close. Nobody’s star power shines brighter going into Monday than JTG.
Second-top player: Rams QB Jared Goff - $6,800
Third-top player: 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick - $6,500
This is why I hate fly-by fantasy football. The Rams’ third-string QB and the Niners’ backup QB are your top fantasy options overall behind JTG. What is this.
Rams’ X-Factor: K Greg Zuerlein - $4,500
I’d go with TE Tyler Higbee here, but we know Rams HC Jeff Fisher’s aversion to rookies.
49ers’ X-Factor: WR Quinton Patton - $4,800
Patton is the Niners’ version of Brian Quick. His fork in the road hasn’t headed Quick’s way. Until it does, he’s playing on promise unrealized.
