49ers | Colin Kaepernick resumes throwing

Tue, 03 May 2016 19:56:44 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) has resumed throwing a "bit", according to a league source Tuesday, May 3, and it appears he will stay with the team to compete with QB Blaine Gabbert for the starting job. Kaepernick was discussed in trade talks with other clubs, including the Denver Broncos, but after the 2016 NFL draft it appears he is now staying put. The Broncos added a quarterback in the first round, as did the New York Jets, another potential landing spot for Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick could flourish under Chip Kelly in his up-tempo offense, so it will be an interesting race to watch in training camp and the preseason. Blaine Gabbert isn't nearly as mobile. Whomever wins the job, they're still nothing more than a QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue big-name QB

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:28:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford are unlikely to be pursued by the Denver Broncos after the team selected QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but Denver could still add a veteran quarterback at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is no lock to start as a rookie, and even if he does beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting gig, he would be a low-end QB2.

Broncos | Kaepernick trade unlikely by Sunday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:15:58 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is not expected to be traded to the Denver Broncos by Sunday, May 1, as there have been no talks of late.

Fantasy Tip: There could still be a successful trade, but it just doesn't seem likely to happen this weekend. Kaepernick has QB1 potential with the 49ers or Broncos, but it's safer to take him as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Colin Kaepernick to DEN still likely?

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:32:00 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is likely to be acquired by the Denver Broncos, in the opinion of ESPN analyst, and former NFL executive, Mark Dominik. Dominik said Wednesday, April 27, on ESPN's Russillo and Kanell, that when Kaepernick met with Broncos team president John Elway, the parameters of a deal and a contract were likely mapped out. Dominik said it didn't benefit the 49ers to let Kaepernick visit the Broncos if a deal wasn't going to happen.

Dominik opined that he thinks a trade could happen Friday, April 29, or Saturday, April 30, because the 49ers are likely set on drafting a quarterback in the first three rounds.

Fantasy Tip: The most upside Kaepernick could possess in fantasy, realistically speaking, would be in the Denver offense. If he lands there, he'll still be a QB2 in fantasy, but he could be an option to plug in your lineups on your starter's bye week.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick not throwing

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 09:29:49 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) is attending the team's voluntary minicamp this week but hasn't resume throwing.

Fantasy Tip: Kap should be healed in plenty of time for training camp this fall. Which team he's playing on by then is the bigger question, as the Niners haven't ruled out trading him during the draft, which begins tomorrow. The Denver Broncos are the most likely to trade for him, and it'd be the best news for his fantasy value, but he should only be considered a QB2 with upside for more in that scenario.

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 08:07:40 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick could still be traded this week, according to general manager Trent Baalke.

Fantasy Tip: The Denver Broncos would give Kaepernick the most fantasy upside, but he'll be a QB2 wherever he resides.

Broncos | DEN talks with Kaepernick at a standstill

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:24:27 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's trade discussions with the Denver Broncos are dormant, according to Broncos president John Elway.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's fantasy value would be at its peak with the weapons in Denver giving him some upside. Either way, he's a fantasy backup.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick could still be traded

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 13:26:08 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick may still be traded this offseason, according to general manager Trent Baalke. Baalke said he would never say never in regards to a trade, but he does not want to package Kaepernick as part of a trade. Baalke added that the 49ers still want Kaepernick on the roster, but he has not completely ruled out trading the quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Trade talks could ramp up on or around draft day, but it looks like Kaepernick may be staying in the bay area. There is good reason to be excited about Kaepernick in new head coach Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense, but Kaep should still not be considered a QB1 in the fantasy realm.

Broncos | Colin Kaepernick trade done?

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 05:28:00 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's trade to the Denver Broncos could be done, in the opinion of ESPN analyst Mark Dominik. The deal likely hinges on the 49ers drafting a quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick would have the best opportunity in Denver to recapture his fantasy success. The amount of options at his disposal there can't be matched by teams needing a quarterback. He'll be a QB2 in fantasy regardless, however.

Broncos | Josh McCown could land in Denver

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 10:16:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown could be an option for the Denver Broncos if the Broncos can't acquire San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: McCown looked good early last season and would have a lot to work with in Denver. He's pretty limited from a fantasy perspective, though, and he'd be a backup regardless.
