San Francisco 49ers are the Best All-Around Team in the NFL

The Packers might be undefeated, but the 49ers' combination of a great offense and great defense is convincing

by Josh Kipnis

The San Francisco 49ers are the best all-around team in the NFL.  Yes, the Packers are undefeated.  Yes, Aaron Rodgers could be the best passer we have ever seen.  But teams without the Greek God of Quarterbacks have to have a balanced attack and consistency in all aspects of the game.  If we are determining a team with the best offense/defense combination, I have to pick the Niners.

Frank Gore Is Fine According To Harbaugh; Pick Up Kendall Hunter Anyway

Frank Gore, according to San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh is apparently "Fine" after suffering a knee injury against the New York Giants on Sunday.

The 49ers coach was emphatic that Gore will play next week, and the knee injury that kept him out of the majority of the second half is not serious. And that he wasn't put back in the game for precautionary reasons.

Frank Gore should get the majority of snaps on Sunday. The San Francisco 49ers running back has been nursing an ankle injury, but it looks like he'll play through it this week against the Buccanneers.

According to San Fran beat writer, Gore is expected to get 2/3rds of the carries with capable back-up Kendall Hunter getting the rest.

Frank Gore is going to miss time this season. That's a given.

Frank Gore is going to get hurt. That's a certainty up there with death and taxes. And in the 49ers Week 3 game against the Bengals (which was a horrible game to watch, by the way), Frank made that certainty a reality when he turned an ankle.

Braylon Edwards Manages to Make 49ers Offense Worse

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Candlestick Park, the San Francisco 49ers offense actually found a way to get worse.

Rivaling only the Chiefs as one of the most lackluster offenses this year (OK, and maybe the Colts), their newly-acquired wide receiver, Braylon Edwards will be out for three weeks following knee surgery. Which is the last thing San Fran fans wanted to hear. Not to say, he's Braylon has been lighting it up so far this  year, but they need all the help they can get.

Fantasy Football: Ask Athlon Week 1

Beware of RBs that face Pittsburgh and the Jets on multiple occasions

Never bench your studs. Yeah, right. Just because you drafted a running back in the first round, don't think you can just set him in the starting lineup and not have to worry about him falling on his face.

Case in point is Week 1 and Baltimore's Ray Rice. If you're in a non-PPR sit him. If you're in a league without a flex position, sit him. And if you're in a PPR league with a flex position, really consider going somewhere else this week if you have better options/matchups.
