San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been working with former NFL QB Kurt Warner this offseason to become a better all-around quarterback. "For (Kaepernick), it's finding that balance between 'When do I be a quarterback?' and 'When do I be an athlete?' And trying to find that mix between the two," Warner said. "... So the real question is going to be, when the bullets are flying and guys are chasing after him does he revert back to being an athlete or have we made some progress in making him more of a quarterback and staying in a quarterback-friendly position to be able to make more consistent, accurate throws down the field."
Fantasy Tip: Despite a career high in passing and rushing yards in 2014, Kaepernick struggled elsewhere as a quarterback for the Niners. His ability to gain yards on the ground will continue to give him upside and plenty of intrigue as a fantasy QB, but with a largely retooled offense and new coaching staff, Kaepernick shouldn't be seen as anything more than a QB2 with upside if he improves his accuracy and decision-making skills in the pocket.

Fantasy Tip: Nicks' fantasy value is on life support, but he's still worthy of a WR5 flyer at the end of drafts.

Free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (49ers) has had no conversations with his former team about a new contract.
Fantasy Tip: Lloyd and fellow wideout Michael Crabtree are in limbo following a dramatic roster overhaul. Lloyd will likely head elsewhere if the 49ers have had no talks with him. He projects as a WR3 or lower and is a likely late-round selection.

San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush still has the ability to be an every-down back, according to head coach Jim Tomsula. Tomsula said Bush is not a gadget player but does have the skill set to help on third downs.
Fantasy Tip: Carlos Hyde is expected to enter training camp as the leading candidate for the starting job, but Bush should have a solid role in the offense. Bush likely will have more value in point-per-reception leagues but could be a middle- to late-round pick in most leagues.

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is having a hard time being signed this offseason, reportedly due to concerns regarding lower-leg injuries and a negative perception about his attitude.
Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is a dynamic playmaker when he's at full health. It remains to be seen where he'll end up before the start of the 2015 season, but he has WR2 potential in all scoring formats as long as he stays on the field.
