49ers | Colin Kaepernick leads team to win

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 18:04:30 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 28 of his 38 pass attempts for 266 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 16 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He also ran six times for 15 yards and a score, and added a two-point conversion.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has thrown for 10 touchdowns over his past six games, and outside of that disastrous snow game in Chicago in Week 13 he has been a borderline low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 down the stretch in most fantasy formats.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick tosses pair of TDs

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 22:51:17 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 20 of his 33 pass attempts for 183 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also rushed three times for 21 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick had an OK game, but he did not have a huge statistical game against the league's worst-ranked passing defense. He remains more of a QB2 in fantasy leagues headed down the stretch.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick added to injury report

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 19:10:22 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (neck) was added to the injury report but was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons defense has given up plenty of points this year, but Kaepernick is still nothing more than a desperation QB2 in Week 15.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick to draw another start

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 10:16:55 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will get the start in Week 14 against the New York Jets, according to offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins.

Fantasy Tip: After about a month-long run as the second-best quarterback in fantasy behind Aaron Rodgers, the 49ers only allowed Kaepernick to throw five passes and run six times before benching him in the fourth quarter during what was supposed to be a very good matchup against an injury-riddled Chicago Bears defense. The Jets arguably present a better matchup and he'll be at home this time around, but the risk of trusting him outside of a contrarian play in DFS is just too high during the fantasy playoffs.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick bench in loss

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 13:08:39 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was benched in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 13 after he completed only one of his five passes for four yards during the game. He also sacked five times during the game and lost 25 yards. Kaepernick was replaced by QB Blaine Gabbert during the game.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Kaepernick will remain the starting quarterback or if Gabbert will take over the job. Kaepernick played well before Week 13, but owners may want to avoid the 49ers quarterback situation for the rest of the season.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick will void his contract

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 09:52:37 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will void his contract after the season and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to sources. Kaepernick has not ruled out re-signing with the 49ers during the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has posted decent numbers since taking over the starting job and has six touchdowns and one interception over the last three games. Kaepernick can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against certain opponents moving forward.

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.
