NFL | Colin Kaepernick looking for chance to start

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 05:19:02 -0700

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is looking for a team with a chance to compete for a starting job and the potential to earn $9-$10 million per year.

Fantasy Tip: There are only a few teams that can offer him a chance to start. If he finds that role, he'll be a mid-to-low QB2 in fantasy.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue Colin Kaepernick

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 17:29:06 -0700

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) likely will not receive interest from the Denver Broncos because the team would look for a quarterback that would fit their offense better if they decide to sign a veteran quarterback, according to general manager John Elway.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick may not be able to find a team until after the 2017 NFL Draft and may have to settle for a backup job next season. He could be avoided in all leagues if he is a backup and would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he finds a starting job.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick could return to 49ers

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 13:36:18 -0700

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has not ruled out the possibility of the 49ers re-signing free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick but did say the likelihood if it happening has dropped since the team has added QBs Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: He averaged 187 passing yards and 1.33 touchdowns per game last season along with 39 rushing yards. He only threw four picks last season, which was a vast improvement. He is shell of the dynamic dual threat that took his team to the Super Bowl four years ago. He's a meager QB2 in fantasy.
