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 Panthers are just 24th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Brees has not played as well on the road as he has in New Orleans.
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.
