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.

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:51:39 -0700

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.

49ers | Josh X. Johnson may be No. 2 QB

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 01:48:52 -0700

After another poor outing by San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert, sources indicate there has been some talk about QB Josh X. Johnson being moved to the No. 2 slot behind QB Colin Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: While Johnson would still carry little fantasy value as the backup to Kaepernick, the real story here is how far Gabbert's value may have slid. When you can't even be a competent backup then alarm bills will ring.

49ers | Stevie Johnson impresses

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 08:32:40 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) looked healthy in Day 1 of training camp. QB Colin Kaepernick raved about Johnson's quickness and deceptiveness that fuel his ability to create separation.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's fantasy prospects in this crowded receiving corps don't bode well for his week-to-week consistency in terms of numbers. He's a WR4 most weeks, with more upside depending on the matchup. But his presence improves this passing game as a whole, giving Kap more cred as a top-10 fantasy QB.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick's deal is year to year

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 06:06:06 -0700

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's new contract is a year-to-year deal that guarantees only $13.073 million. For 2014 to 2017 and part of 2018, the base salaries are guaranteed only for injury. April 1 of each year, the guarantees convert from injury only to fully guaranteed. His base salaries from 2015 to 2018 are $12.4 million, $13.9 million, $16.5 million and $17 million, respectively, which are guaranteed for injury only until April 1. In 2018, $5.2 million is guaranteed for injury until April 1.

The total payout potentially de-escalates by $2 million per year, with up to $12 million potentially going away. Kaepernick can halt the de-escalation by taking, in any year of the deal, 80 percent of the snaps and if: the 49ers appear in the Super Bowl or Kaepernick is named a first-team or second-team All-Pro. If he satisfies the requirement in 2014, the full $12 million remains. Starting in 2015, $400,000 per year is tied to workout bonuses, which adds up to $2.4 million of the base value. The contract also requires Kaepernick to purchase, with after-tax dollars money, a disability policy that pays the 49ers $20 million if he suffers a career-ending injury.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick reaches extension

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 12:58:25 -0700

The San Francisco 49ers reached an agreement with QB Colin Kaepernick on a six-year extension worth $126 million that will keep him with the team through the 2020 season, according to sources. He'll receive $61 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick receives the most guaranteed money in NFL history with this deal. The Niners have their franchise QB locked up now. For fantasy purposes, he's more of a midrange to low-end QB1 once the big names come off the board.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick breakout year expected

Thu, 29 May 2014 12:30:05 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is expected to have his breakout year in 2014, head coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: While inconsistent at times in 2013, Kaepernick still finished in QB1 territory. He has a lot of toys to play with this year, including Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson and Vernon Davis. Add that to his running ability and you have what could be a top-10 fantasy quarterback in 2014.

49ers | Details on Colin Kaepernick investigation

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 12:35:01 -0700

Updating a previous report, an unnamed woman said she had an encounter with San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette April 1 at a Miami hotel. The woman told police she drank and smoked marijuana with the players and wound up in Kaepernick's room. She told police that she and Kaepernick both removed their closes but didn't have sex. Kaepernick later left the room and the woman said she couldn't remember anything after that. Kaepernick is being investigated for alleged sexual assault, but the investigation is in the "beginning stages."

Fantasy Tip: This investigation could turn out to be a real problem for Kap. Some sort of suspension will likely be handed down by the NFL if Kaepernick is found guilty of sexual assault in any capacity. Stay tuned.
