Sit ‘Em

Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco 49ers – Where do I begin here? Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers are struggling as of late, badly. Kaepernick should be benched on your fantasy team this week, (if you hadn’t figured that out already) and possibly even in real life.

To put the nail in the coffin for Kaep in week 15, his 9ers will take on the Seattle Seahawks, (see above). In week 13, Kaepernick was devoured by the Seattle D at home, and things may turn out even uglier this time around. The 9ers signal caller hasn’t scored over 15 fantasy points since week six, and will be lucky to score six points in week 15.

Trent Richardson, RB, Indianapolis Colts – I am a believer of strong performances in revenge games, and I thought that Trent Richardson would have a better game last week in his return to Cleveland. It didn’t work out that way however, and Richardson was held to just 30 yards on seven carries.

In fact, he has just one game with double-digit fantasy points since week seven. Richardson’s struggles since being traded last season can no longer be blamed on “adjustment” and the fact of the matter may be that the Browns in fact got the better end of the stick, for once.

Dan Herron is clearly the man with Ahmad Bradshaw out of action, and Richardson should be benched accordingly.
