Fri, 22 Nov 2013 19:35:56 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has a very favorable matchup, as the Washington Redskins are ranked 19th in the NFL against the rush, and 26th against the pass, allowing 274.9 yards per game through the air with 19 passing TDs allowed. Kaepernick is a low-end No. 1 fantasy option for Week 12.

San Francisco 49ers WR Mario Manningham (knee) was able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 6, and he is expected to play in some capacity against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. "He's a receiver that's easy to throw to," QB Colin Kaepernick said. "So it's not going to take much time for him to get back up to speed."
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 21:43:10 -0700

"We don't want to take about controversy on who the returner is," Harbaugh said. "There's no returner controversy or anything like that."

The San Francisco 49ers were successful on many zone-read runs in their victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 7. QB Colin Kaepernick had a 20-yard rushing touchdown and finished with 68 yards on 11 runs. His running also opened up throwing lanes on the perimeter for the receivers. WR Anquan Boldin had five catches for 74 yards, and he thought he pistol scheme allowed for one-on-one matchups on the outside. "It makes defenses declare," Boldin said of the quarterback-driven runs. "Are you going to be bringing an eighth guy down in the box to stop the run or are you going to stay with seven guys? It definitely clears things up for us. It allows us to throw the ball outside as well."
Fantasy Tip: The Niners offense is clicking on all cylinders right now, and it coincides with the success that Frank Gore is having on the ground with a substantial workload. Look for San Fran to continue using this recipe, and the success should continue this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 19:16:55 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (foot) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 15:19:15 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (toes) has been on the injury report twice this year with a foot injury, and he elaborated Wednesday, Oct. 16, that he's been dealing with a hangnail on his pinkie toes on both feet.
Fantasy Tip: This obviously isn't a serious injury and shouldn't hamper his ability or willingness to scramble out of the pocket and pick up yards with his legs.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 16:58:29 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (foot) practiced fully Friday, Oct. 11, and he is probable for Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.

"Any type of ailment, injury, however you define it, has got to be on the injury report."
Thu, 10 Oct 2013 17:07:04 -0700

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 19:04:15 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (foot) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick was also listed on the injury report last week, but practiced fine and was able to start, although he didn't have the best week statistically against a solid defense. The Arizona Cardinals, the Week 6 opponent for the Niners, ranks 19th against the pass, so Kaepernick should see much better results for his fantasy owners.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 11:28:17 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick finished with just 20 yards rushing and had only 86 yards passing midway through the fourth quarter of the team's ugly loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is in a two-game slump, and without Vernon Davis (hamstring), it became apparent that the San Fran QB didn't have a whole lot of help in the passing game. Davis' return should help Kap, but his struggles could continue throughout the season.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 19:28:37 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (foot) was able to take part in a full practice session Friday, Sept. 20, and he is listed as probable for the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (foot) was listed on the injury report Wednesday, Sept. 18, due to a foot injury, but he was able to take part in a full practice session.

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 11:02:50 -0700

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 09:43:32 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles were close to acquiring San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick for a second-round draft choice a few weeks prior to the 2012 NFL draft but decided not to make the trade because they thought they could draft Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. After the Seahawks selected Wilson in the draft, the Eagles decided to draft QB Nick Foles.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 10:28:41 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin totaled 208 receiving yards and a touchdown on 13 catches in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers. Boldin's highest yards output in three years with the Baltimore Ravens was 145 yards. QB Colin Kaepernick's 412 passing yards were the most by an opening day quarterback in team history.
Fantasy Tip: Boldin looks like he could be a point-per-reception gold mine this year if Kaepernick looks to him like he did Michael Crabtree a year ago. Keep in mind, though, that Green Bay's secondary is rather weak against the pass. Don't expect this kind of output next week from either Boldin or Kap against the Seattle Seahawks' stout D in Week 2.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 07:12:22 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was banned from running in preseason games.

Thu, 05 Sep 2013 08:29:07 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick vastly improved on his touch passes in the offseason. TE Vernon Davis called him a completely different player in terms of his touch and precise decisions in the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick was known to have a rifle of an arm, but some throws sailed on him. The improved touch should serve him well on short and intermediate routes. He also worked with Olympic sprinters in the offseason to try to improve his speed. Kaepernick sounds like he isn't resting on his laurels and has the work ethic to go with his wealth of physical talent.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 16:55:11 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick rolled up 181 yards rushing on 16 official rush attempts in the NFC divisional round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers last season. Kaepernick had seven keepers out of the read option, posting 99 rushing yards. He also threw for 263 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He'll look to do it again in Week 1 against the Packers. "There's a focus on the athletic quarterback, particularly Kaepernick and some of the other guys in the league," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday, Sept. 3. "We feel we're definitely better prepared for (the read option) than we were last year, that's for sure."
Fri, 30 Aug 2013 00:40:26 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Seneca Wallace has left the team. Wallace was originally set to be released by the club; he was No. 4 on the depth chart behind Colin Kaepernick, Colt McCoy and B.J. Daniels.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:44:45 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colt McCoy has been named the backup quarterback by head coach Jim Harbaugh over QBs B.J. Daniels and Scott Tolzien. "I feel real good that Colt is the backup (to QB Colin Kaepernick)," Harbaugh said Sunday, Aug. 25. McCoy restructured his contract Saturday, Aug. 24, and one day later he completed 11 of his 15 pass attempts for 109 yards and one interception.
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 19:48:13 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick barely made a cameo in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was limited to one offensive drive and just five snaps, and he has played a total of 17 snaps through the first two exhibition games.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is not dealing with any kind of a known injury, and it appears the team is just being cautious with the centerpiece of their offense, especially after losing some other key personnel to injuries during workouts. Kaepernick is a Top 10 fantasy option at his position worth a look anywhere from the fifth round and after on draft day.
Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:01:05 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colt McCoy was solid during spring practices, and the team feels they could win games with McCoy in there if QB Colin Kaepernick ever was unavailable. McCoy sounds solidly entrenched as the primary backup behind Kaepernick.
Fri, 28 Jun 2013 11:07:37 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is trying to find balance in his workout routine to help stay fit before training camp after head coach Jim Harbaugh said he was concerned about his quarterback working too hard in the weight room. "That's the balance I'm trying to find," Kaepernick said. "Can I get big, can I get strong and still remain flexible enough to go out and throw the ball well?"
Wed, 29 May 2013 11:22:16 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin said he already feels comfortable in the offense after participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 28. Boldin said he's run many of the same routes and plays in the team's complicated version of the West Coast offense, and he's just working on the terminology now. QB Colin Kaepernick has already enjoyed throwing to Boldin and has made him his first read often. "I guess I'm looked at as being able to step in right now and make plays," Boldin said. "And that's what I want to bring. I want Kaep to be comfortable. I want the other quarterbacks to be comfortable enough to, even if it doesn't look like I'm open, just give me a chance. I'll make a play for you."
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Boldin to immediately fill in and put up similar numbers to what Michael Crabtree did last year. However, Boldin is a veteran that will be a safety valve for Kaepernick. Boldin will be a nice fourth receiver with the potential for more.
Tue, 28 May 2013 18:02:57 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin was the top target of all four quarterbacks during organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 28, including several passes from QB Colin Kaepernick. Boldin has been a quick study. "You got a good look at what he's been doing," head coach Jim Harbaugh said. "He's picked up the system fast and making plays, big catches in tight areas."
Fantasy Tip: Since Michael Crabtree will be out for the season, unless the team unexpectedly goes out and lands a No. 1 wideout, Boldin will be the top WR on the club, and one of the top targets in the passing game along with TE Vernon Davis. He should re-emerge as a low-end WR1 or must-start WR2 in all formats this season.
Fri, 24 May 2013 10:44:58 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick said he's still the fastest quarterback in the league, despite the presence of San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. "These guys are young and they're fast and they're quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up," Vick said. "I really don't feel like there's a quarterback in the league who can beat me in a 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I'll be more than glad to accept the challenge."
Fri, 24 May 2013 10:20:11 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Ricardo Lockette, who is roommates with QB Colin Kaepernick, could be an intriguing candidate to step up with WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') injured. Lockette is 6-foot-2, 211 pounds and constantly is being tutored by Kaepernick since they live together. "He's one of the fastest guys on the team, and I've been trying to keep up with him," Kaepernick said of Lockette. Kaepernick has helped Lockette understand and simplify the team's playbook, and he impressed offensive coordinator Greg Roman last year while making impressive catches on the scout team. Lockette, a former track star, considers himself more of an outside receiver that can take advantage of his size and speed. "I'm sure there's things I can specifically name, but there's just something about him that I'm really fired up about," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "He's got something else to him, too, besides just the analytical size, strength, speed."
Fantasy Tip: Lockette would be classified as a super sleeper this year, mainly because, even with Crabtree out, there are still a lot of names ahead of him on the depth chart. But Lockette's relationship with Kaepernick shouldn't be overlooked. Keep Lockette's name tucked away in really deep leagues.
