The Rams are just 25th against fantasy quarterbacks this year and the 49ers are coming off their bye week. Kaepernick has low QB1 appeal in a favorable matchup.
Big Ben is coming off a career game, but the Ravens are 10th against fantasy quarterbacks and Big Ben projects as a low QB1 this week.

St. Louis' defense with just 3 picks on the season (and the 2nd most rushing yards by QBs against) seems like the perfect get right game for Kap coming out of the bye.
The Ravens have allowed just one more passing TD all season than Ben threw on Sunday, so, expect a dialed down effort but a solid home prime time outing nonetheless.
