Unrelenting physical style leads to quality Fantasy totals again3rd in NFL with 98 catches
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Starting at running back for the team leading the NFL in rushes has its perks. Carson has handled 68 carries in four games since returning from a hip injury. The accompanying 344 total yards and three touchdowns make him the RB10 during that stretch. The 49ers, who rank 12th against the run, were the only one of those four opponents to hold him out of the end zone. Yet he should again see a heavy workload as the considerable favorite, so play him with confidence as a top-shelf RB2.Carson Wentz missing Week 15 with a back injury would hurt most of Philadelphia's offense. Ertz, however, should be relatively unscathed by the change. He caught 16 of 23 targets in two games started by Nick Foles to open the season. Last season, he secured 35 of 47 targets in six regular and postseason affairs. The Rams have allowed 67.2 yards per game to tight ends, and that's especially the way to attack them with Aqib Talib rejoining Marcus Peters on the outside. He's an elite choice regardless of the starting quarterback.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The 49ers are 17th against fantasy running backs, Carson should be a RB2 on the road this week against an opponent that he shredded for 108 yards from scrimmage in Week 13. The Rams are 22nd against fantasy tight ends, Ertz is an upside TE1 this week in a great matchup.
