Not much of a surprise here, but for Frank Gore owners Jacobs’ absence means the likelihood of a Michael Bush-stealing-Matt-Forte’s-touchdowns scenario isn’t likely in this one. Ginn and Jacobs were both expected to miss today’s game and should be good for next week. Rookie WR AJ Jenkins was declared active at the expense of LaMichael James. We will see plenty of Gore and Kendall Hunter today.
As we mentioned earlier today, Marshawn Lynch is good to start this afternoon. He will see a limited workload, so expect Robert Turbin to equal Lynch’s carries. As expected Golden Tate was declared inactive. Beanie Wells will be available for the Cardinals, but Ryan Williams will be the more important player in this one.
With no Jon Stewart for the Panthers, Mike Tolbert may be worth a play in deeper leagues. Bucs WR Arrelious Benn is inactive – one less target for Josh Freeman.
