San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick went 2-for-6 for 14 yards in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26. He also rushed for 18 yards on four carries. Kaepernick said he believes he still has a chance to win the starting quarterback job.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick appears to be behind Blaine Gabbert for the starting quarterback position but still has a chance since head coach Chip Kelly has not named a starter yet. He would have more fantasy value than Gabbert but likely would only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he wins the job.

Fantasy Tip: Draughn will be the No. 2 running back this season and probably will not need to play again before the regular season. He could be a late-round option in leagues as a handcuff to Carlos Hyde but likely will stay on the bench most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Hyde will have to pass his concussion tests before he is cleared to play again, so owners will need to monitor the situation. Hyde should receive most of the playing time at the position this season and should be a decent No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was in line to open the year as the starting slot receiver, but a serious injury could change that. If healthy, he could be a decent WR5 in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Gabbert is the leading candidate for the starting job and would have to struggle to lose the job. Gabbert had some success as a starter last season but would only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers LBs Michael Wilhoite, Ray Ray Armstrong and Gerald Hodges are still competing for the starting inside linebacker job next to LB NaVorro Bowman, but defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil said the competition could continue during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick and Gabbert continue to compete for the starting job but this will be Kaepernick's first time on the field this offseason. Kaepernick would be the more valuable option for fantasy owners, but neither quarterback should be a No. 1 quarterback for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has flamed out over the past two seasons and is now battling for the starting job with Blaine Gabbert. Kaepernick owns significantly more upside, especially in fantasy, but he's also just returning from practice following offseason shoulder surgery and then a period of nursing soreness during his recovery. In single-QB leagues, Kaepernick and Gabbert are off the fantasy radar for now, but Kaepernick could prove to be a potential streaming option in favorable matchups before the season is done. It's a situation to monitor.
