49ers | Colin Kaepernick hurt by drops

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:02:47 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick only completed 43.8 percent of his passes in the team's Week 10 in part because the team dropped six passes during the game, which is most by any team this season.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has had solid completion percentages throughout the season, so this type of performance should not continue. Kaepernick will be facing the New York Giants in Week 11 and could be a good starting option.

49ers | Frank Gore not happy with offense

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 10:43:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore wasn't pleased with the offensive game plan in which they unleashed five-receiver sets against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3 because of a lack of healthy tight ends. The receiver-heavy look didn't feature a running back, and the Niners went with a no-huddle offense. QB Colin Kaepernick's 78.4 completion percentage (29-for-37) was his best as a starter. Gore had just one carry in the second half and finished with six rushes for just 10 yards. RB Carlos Hyde had three carries for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: This approach won't always be the game plan. Expect a more balanced focus on offense with Vernon Davis (ankle) returns to the starting lineup. However, Gore's involvement should be monitored. If he continues to lose touches, he probably won't be much more than a flex play.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick practices fully

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 16:49:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (back) was able to practice in full Friday, Sept. 19, and he is listed as probable for Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is a mid-tier salary guy in FantasyScore ($7500 or 15.0 percent of your salary) for Week 3, or the 14th-highest priced QB on the board. The Cardinals are allowing 249 passing yards per game through two games, so Kaepernick could exceed salary expectations Sunday.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick played through foot injuries

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:36:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said his foot sustained a bone chip on the forefoot and a ruptured capsule on the ball in Week 2 of last season. In the following four games, he averaged fewer than 16 rushing yards per contest. The Niners tried to reduce risk for him any way possible until he was at full strength. His production on the ground increased as he healed, and San Francisco allowed him to do designed runs in the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: In the article, Maiocco guesses that it was Kap's left foot that sustained the injury. The fact Kaepernick ran for 524 yards last year -- the second highest in a single season for a Niners QB -- said there's more in store as long as he's healthy. He's an excellent low-end QB1 pick with upside for more.
