According to Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers winning the NFC West will not have a bearing on playing time for his starters.
Fantasy Advice: The 49ers have a one-game advantage over the Saints for the No. 2 seed and have a very outside shot at the No. 1 seed with the Packers only two games ahead at 12-0. Frank Gore has been disappointing recently, coming off a 3.3 ypc average over the last three games. Still, at least owners won't have to worry about any players being benched or prematurely rested during their league playoffs.
