San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has impressed his teammates this offseason by improving the touch on his passes. FS Eric Reid said he's optimistic about how Kaepernick will do this year, especially with the touch he's seen on deep throws.
Fantasy Tip: If Kaepernick can be more accurate on his deep passes, the 49ers could certainly be a more dangerous offense, especially with new deep threat Torrey Smith. San Francisco may also try to use the running backs more in the passing game, which could aid Kaepernick in his accuracy. Still, Kaepernick should not be drafted as your starting quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) sat out most of the 2014 season due to injury but a video posted to his Instagram account Tuesday, July 21, makes it seems he's ready to go for the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: Ellington appeared in 13 games last season, but he hauled in just six receptions for 62 yards and two touchdowns. Ellington also ran for a touchdown, and he could provide a surprise boost to the 49ers passing game this season.
