49ers | Colin Kaepernick surging on the ground

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 15:01:43 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is averaging 62.2 yards per game on the ground. In total, Kaepernick has 373 rushing yards on 46 attempts, including one touchdown. "He's out there, he's in control and when he sees an opportunity he's taken advantage of it," offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said. In addition to his rushing success, Kaepernick is averaging 277.5 yards per game through the air with eight touchdowns and just two interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has been one of the most pleasant surprises in the fantasy realm after taking over as the 49ers' starter. His running ability gives him a distinct advantage over pocket passers from a fantasy perspective and he should no longer be overlooked. In fact, he should be started this week in a favorable matchup against an ailing Chicago Bears defense.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick on a binge

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 07:41:37 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has 1,110 passing yards and eight touchdowns on 145 passing attempts over his last four games, and all of which are the highest four-game totals of his career.

Fantasy Tip: He has completed 59.3 percent of his passes during the stretch, which is exactly his career average. Kaep isn't a surefire starting option in fantasy, but he's chucking it well right now. He has a so-so matchup against the Chicago Bears in Week 13, but he's someone to think about for a lower price in DFS.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick explosive in loss

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:00:53 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 29-for-46 passing for 296 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins. He rushed a game-high 113 yards on 10 carries.

Fantasy Tip: Kaep has been more than capable of exploiting favorable matchups in recent weeks. The Niners have midrange fantasy schedule the rest of the way, so keep him in mind for streaming and DFS purposes.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick tosses two TDs

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 22:17:44 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 16 of his 30 pass attempts for 206 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the New England Patriots. He rushed four times for 32 yards and was sacked five times.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick had a fairly decent performance against the Patriots in rainy and sloppy conditions. The 49ers can expect better weather in their Week 12 matchup in Miami. He remains a solid QB2 in most fantasy formats.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick doesn't do much

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 21:47:33 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 17 of his 30 pass attempts for 210 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He rushed 10 times for a team-high 55 yards and a touchdown, too.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick did OK against a solid defense actually, but he'll face another challenging defense when the New England Patriots visit next weekend. Kaep remains more of a streaming option if your primary option is on a bye.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick throws for 398 yards

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:14:07 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 24 of his 39 pass attempts for 398 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 9 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also ran five times for 23 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't all great, as Kaepernick did lose a fumble. He entered with 330 passing yards and two touchdowns in his previous two starts combined, but this line wasn't terribly surprising considering the New Orleans Saints have a terrible pass defense. If Kaep is able to replicate this production in Arizona in Week 10 against a good defense then he can be trusted in fantasy leagues again.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick to start after bye

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 23:10:38 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will remain the team's starter in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The team is off this week.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has made a handful of splash plays in his two starts but hasn't produced with any consistency. Unless you're in a league that starts two QBs or are completely desperate at the position there's no reason to have Kaepernick on roster.

49ers | So-so game for Colin Kaepernick

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 21:58:02 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 16 of his 34 pass attempts for 143 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He rushed nine times for a team-high 84 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The 49ers got off to a solid start with 14 points in the first quarter, but managed just three in the final three quarters. Kaepernick hasn't provided a big shot in the arm for the offense or fantasy owners, and he is only worth rostering in the deepest of leagues and those formats which start two quarterbacks. The 49ers are off in Week 8.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick still starter

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 12:32:57 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will remain the starting quarterback in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick was OK in his first start of the season. What makes him attractive from a fantasy standpoint is his running ability. He led the 49ers with 66 rushing yards last week. The matchup is decent, but he is best used as a cheap play in daily formats in order to spend up at other positions.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick has decent outing

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 13:18:51 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick went 13-for-29 for 187 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6. He also rushed for 66 yards on eight carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick had some problems completing passes during the game with 16 incompletions but was able to move the ball with his arm and legs. Kaepernick should keep the starting quarterback moving forward and could be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
