FFL Statbook: Week 17 Game by Game
San Francisco at New England: RB Kevan Barlow is about the only 49ers player a fantasy owner would consider using, and even he's too risky. Even with his respectable Week 16 outing, he still ranked just 17th in FFL points (13). Barlow now faces a Patriots defense that has allowed an average 73.7 rushing yards with four TDs in its last seven games, and it's hard to believe they'd be much worse even if they rest some regulars. ... RB Corey Dillon is unlikely to play the entire game, but remember that he's just 31 rushing yards behind Edgerrin James for the AFC lead and needs 81 more to reach 1,600 to exercise an incentive clause in his contract. He might get as much as the entire first half to attack a 49ers secondary that has allowed an NFL-high 21 rushing TDs and an average 143.0 yards with six TDs in its last three games. Dillon's still worth using as a No. 2 or 3 unless you hear word he'll play less than the half.
