Jets | Colin Kaepernick not an option for Jets

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 13:41:21 -0700

The New York Jets are not interested in signing free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers), according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick probably will not be able to find a starting job this offseason but should be able be a backup for a team in 2017. Owners in fantasy leagues can avoid him if he is not a starting quarterback.

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: Kaepernick has not been linked to many teams this offseason, so he probably will have to wait before signing with a team. He will not have any fantasy value if he is a backup next season and would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he does start.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick officially opts out

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 06:12:22 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract Friday, March 3, according to sources.

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.

Browns | Colin Kaepernick not an option for Browns

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 15:57:17 -0800

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick will not receive interest from the Cleveland Browns in free agency, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's agents have informed all 32 teams that he will be available this offseason, but it appears the Browns will be looking at other options. It is not known if Kaepernick will be able to find a starting job, but he has had success in the past. He could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in some leagues if he is a starter in 2017.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's new agents, Jeff Nalley and Sean Kiernan, have informed all 32 teams that Kaepernick will be opting out of his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's fantasy hourglass is getting pretty thin. He could be a midrange QB2 at best right now.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick meets with GM, coach

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:59:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick met with general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan Wednesday, Feb. 22. Lynch said they had a positive conversation and that both sides left the meeting excited.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Kaepernick will pick up the option in his contract. Kaepernick has a chance to start for a team in 2017 but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick visits team headquarters

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:20:06 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick visited the team's headquarters Wednesday, Feb. 22, according to a source. Kaepernick likely was there to meet with general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has a few more weeks to decide if he will pick up his option or if he will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Kaepernick will be available if the 49ers want to move on and could receive some interest from teams looking for starting quarterbacks. Kaepernick probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts and can be avoided if he is a backup.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick open to returning to SF

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 22:00:54 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is open to returning to the team in 2017, according to "those close to him." The 29-year-old is due to earn nearly $15 million in base salary, but he can also opt out of the deal and enter free agency, which begins on March 9. San Francisco also has the option of releasing him with little ramifications to their salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick ended up putting together a pretty nice season, finishing with 16 touchdowns versus only four interceptions, while recording a 90.7 QB rating -- his best since 2013. Furthermore, he averaged nearly 40 rushing yards per game. With a new coaching staff and general manager, San Francisco ultimately may decide to go in a different direction, but if Kaepernick still has a starting job next year, he could end up being a solid QB2 option.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue Colin Kaepernick

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 09:05:18 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is not expected to be a trade target again this offseason for the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick-to-Denver looked like it was going to happen last offseason, but the compensation can never get worked out, and the Broncos ended up sticking with Trevor Siemian and drafting Paxton Lynch. Denver has reaffirmed its commitment to developing both several times already this offseason, so it appears Kaepernick will have to look elsewhere for a potential starting gig if he opts out of his deal with San Francisco.

49ers | Coach, GM will meet with Colin Kaepernick

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 14:46:04 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will meet with general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Kaepernick has reached out to both men.

Fantasy Tip: It would behoove the 49ers to at least attempt to get on the same page with the polarizing quarterback. San Francisco has three quarterbacks who are impending free agents. Kaep is not one of them. His running ability really keeps him on the fantasy radar, so don't completely disregard him just yet.
