49ers | Vance McDonald emerging as weapon

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 21:01:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald has caught five passes for 92 yards from QB Blaine Gabbert through two preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: He continues to show chemistry with Gabbert, and McDonald could end up being San Francisco's best weapon in the passing game this year. He is a sneaky TE1 candidate.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert running away with QB job

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 15:25:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert has been the "landslide favorite for weeks" in his battle with QB Colin Kaepernick, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Fantasy Tip: Caplan notes head coach Chip Kelly "is trying to be fair" to Kaepernick by allowing the quarterback competition to go on this long, but Kaepernick likely missed too much time in the offseason to make it a fair fight. Expect Gabbert to be running the show in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams and make for a sneaky QB2 option for an offense that figures to be playing from behind a lot in 2016.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert likely to start Sunday

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 10:55:07 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert appears likely to start the team's preseason opener against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 14, although head coach Chip Kelly hasn't made an official announcement. QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) did not practice Friday, Aug. 12, and his status for Sunday's game is uncertain.

Fantasy Tip: Whichever quarterback wins the starting job should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in the majority of seasonal leagues. Gabbert appears to have a slight edge at this point due to his knowledge of the playbook, although Kaepernick has the higher fantasy upside.

49ers | San Francisco to split QB reps in games

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 12:03:58 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QBs Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick will share snaps with the first-team offense during preseason games until the team is ready to name a starting quarterback, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Gabbert appears to be the leading candidate for the starting job at this point, but Kaepernick would win the job if he plays well during training camp. Kaepernick would have more fantasy value than Gabbert if he is the quarterback, but neither player will be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert heavily favored to start

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 18:09:00 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert is considered an enormous favorite to start over QB Colin Kaepernick in the regular season opener, in the opinion of beat writer Tim Kawakami.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing is engraved in stone, but it appears from the sound of things that Gabbert is grasping the new offense of Chip Kelly a little better than Kaep. Regardless, the winner of the job is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in most fantasy formats.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick holding his own

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 21:47:44 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QBs Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert have taken an equal amount of reps in practice with the first-team offense so far in training camp. Both have been sharper working with would-be starters than the second team. Head coach Chip Kelly noted the preseason games will be critical.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick and Gabbert are battling hard for the starting job, but whomever wins the job will be a low-end QB2 at best in most fantasy leagues. The only time the San Francisco starter should be active in fantasy is out of desperation due to injuries or bye weeks or in formats which require two starting signal callers.

49ers | San Francisco QBs will split reps

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 12:02:13 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QBs Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert will split first-team repetitions "right down the middle," according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: This is one of the most intriguing quarterback battles to keep an eye throughout training camp and the preseason. It may come down to the wire, but whoever wins can be left on the waiver wire in traditional fantasy leagues.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert praised by Jerry Rice

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 09:36:25 -0700

Former San Francisco 49ers WR Jerry Rice praised QB Blaine Gabbert, who will be competing for the starting quarterback job with QB Colin Kaepernick in training camp. "I had an opportunity to meet him, and you can just tell the confidence. He feels he has a legitimate chance of being the starter. Then you got Colin Kaepernick, and I don't know if they're gonna be able to, you know, that offense of Chip Kelly because he likes to get over the ball, he likes constant movement and all of that," Rice said.

Fantasy Tip: It will be a very interesting development in training camp as to who comes out victorious in this QB battle under Chip Kelly's new high-octane offense. Whoever wins the job could be a QB2 sleeper with upside, but although Gabbert showed some poise at times in 2015, Kap's ceiling remains much higher for fantasy owners.

49ers | All eyes will be on QB battle

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:21:18 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QBs Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick head into training camp battling for the starting job under center. Many in the organization feel Gabbert is a better fit in head coach Chip Kelly's offense, and he has a good grasp of the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is the better athlete, but Gabbert might be the better fit. Whomever wins the job in Frisco should be viewed as a Top 20 fantasy option at his position.

49ers | Torrey Smith ready for No. 1 role

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:13:59 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith inherits the No. 1 spot in the depth chart with WR Anquan Boldin no longer with the organization. It will be the first time in Smith's career that he is the unquestioned go-to guy. Smith wants to be more than just a deep threat and worked to develop a good rapport with QB Blaine Gabbert in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is still worth drafting only as a WR2 at best, as he might be a No. 1 on his team but he still has a rather questionable quarterback situation.
