49ers HC Jim Harbaugh won't reveal starting QB -- but it's Colin Kaepernick

Every advantage helps. 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday he might be getting only an extra "one percent" advantage by not divulging whom his starting quarterback is going to be for Sunday's game versus the Saints, but he'll take it. Harbaugh has declined all week, Friday included, to officially name a starter, calling it a "competitive advantage."
However, nobody told safety Donte Whitner about such an advantage. In a radio interview Friday, he said Colin Kaepernick @Kaepernick7 will indeed start in New Orleans.

Fantasy Analysis:

Oops. Oh, well. It's not like Whitner's statement really surprised many people.
Are we done here? I was kind of outraged when I first heard the Wednesday report from Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter that Kaepernick is going to be the 49ers' main man from here on out. Now I just want to get to Sunday. Alex Smith isn't even cleared to play yet, so he probably would have been out for this game anyway. Kaepernick was a revelation versus the Bears in Week 11. Now he gets a crack at the league's last-ranked defense. He's an easy top-15 QB in fantasy this week. FFToolbox has ranked him appropriately at No. 11.

I really need to know if he is starting or not. I also have Freeman. Should I roll the dice on Kaepernick?

Damn, really tough to bench Freeman considering how good he has been since Week 6. And I don't want to get so wrapped up with Kaepernick after one start. But that Saints defense is so bad, yeah, I gotta go with newbie. Falcons still stop the pass fairly well. They have given up just three multi-TD games to quarterbacks this season
