Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) missed the last game but appears to be on track to play in Week 5. Davis has caught only eight passes for 109 yards in three games this season and may not be the best option for fantasy owners.

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith has nine catches for 185 yards on the season through four games, but two of those catches accounted for 122 of his yards, and he has one touchdown. Smith was seen storming off the field in a Week 4 loss in frustration, and San Fran has the No. 32-ranked passing attack with an average of just 158.8 yards per game through the air. Smith is averaging just 9.0 yards per catch if you take away his 75-yard touchdown catch in Week 2. He averaged 16.9 yards per catch with the Baltimore Ravens. "We need to use (Smith) more and we need to get him more involved," head coach Jim Tomsula said. "So again, that's on the checklist."
Fantasy Tip: It hasn't helped Smith ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) that Colin Kaepernick has regressed even further so far in 2015. Smith has always been more of a home run hitter, making him more valuable in standard than PPR leagues. The way the Niners offense is playing, Smith is a desperation dart throw on FantasyScore.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is still growing into the quarterback position as a pocket passer, according to former QB Kurt Warner, who mentored the Niners quarterback in the offseason. "I think the unfortunate thing for Kap is he's continuing to try to learn how to play the quarterback position," Warner said of Kaepernick. Kaepernick's total QBR is at a career-low 38.6 after four games with two passing touchdowns and a running TD, but all three of his scores have come with San Fran trailing by at least 25 points. He has five interceptions, no touchdowns and just six completions of passes more than five yards down the field in the last two games.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) and the Niners have faced some tough opponents recently, but it's clear he's not comfortable yet in the pocket in this new offense. He should have a much easier time of it against the New York Giants in Week 5, but you can't trust him on FantasyScore until we see improvement.

Fantasy Tip: The Green Bay defense has been much improved this year, but Kaepernick has left plenty to be desired in 2015 after he spent the entire offseason working on improving his pocket and overall game as a passer. With the Niners encouraging him to live more inside the pocket, he has become even more unfriendly to fantasy owners so far.

Fantasy Tip: After missing most of the first three games, Bush ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was not a factor in his return. His role should at least grow on passing downs moving forward, but given the state of the San Francisco offense, his production is likely to remain limited.

Fantasy Tip: Hyde ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) couldn't find much running room, and aside from his monster performance in Week 1, he hasn't done much in his first year as the lead back. With San Francisco struggling as a whole on offense, Hyde's value will continue to be limited at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Vance McDonald ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) probably will receive the start with Davis out but is not a great fantasy option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers have been more efficient at stopping the run so far this year. Bush ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) remains the backup to Carlos Hyde and hasn't played since Week 1, making him a weak running back pick on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) on FantasyScore. Vance McDonald ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should start in Davis' place, but he has just one target in two games played this year and should also be avoided for daily lineups.
