Quarterback Alex Smith threw for 126 yards and an interception in San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh’s home debut, getting showered with a mix of boos and cheers as San Francisco beat Oakland 17-3.

Smith was 8 for 13 and came up empty in the end zone again. He had a pass picked off by defensive end Matt Shaugnessy in the second quarter and could only lead the 49ers (1-1) to a field goal in one half of play.

The 2005 No. 1 overall pick at least left healthy. Oakland starting quarterback Jason Campbell didn’t return after taking a couple of blows on a scramble play in the second quarter.

The Raiders are 0-2.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's no great surprise to see Smith struggle once again. Although Vernon Davis and Frank Gore should be fine regardless, it's going to be a long year for Braylon Edwards and Michael Crabtree until Colin Kaepernick takes over. At least there would be hope for better days with Kaepernick.
