I am not sure how much it matters that the 49ers were 11th against fantasy tight ends. They are going to be down MLB NaVorro Bowman and OLB Aldon Smith, which is a big part of their defense.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The Colts were the 4th ranked fantasy tight end defense last year, but I think that flies out the window with the suspension of DE Robert Mathis. I really question if the Colts will be able to generate a pass rush and if they cannot, Manning can find any target.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

With the wide open Dallas offense needing to throw to stay in games and the 49ers breaking in some younger linebackers with all the injuries, Witten could be in line for a fine day.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

With no Wes Welker, Thomas will have more chances to assert himself in the offense and build on the numbers he put up against the Colts last season (41 yards and a score).

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

Niners linebackers could keep Witten in check but he gets targets so always has upside. Best value is in PPR.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

No Welker and matchup begs for tons of scoring, so he's a lock for numbers.
