49ers | Colin Kaepernick owned by Seattle

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 23:39:04 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been markedly worse versus the Seattle Seahawks than every other NFL franchise in his career. He has averaged only 164 passing yards per game against Seattle, which is 59.5 fewer than his NFL-wide average. Kaepernick has a QB rating 45.1 points lower versus the Seahawks than the rest of the league (95.7), while throwing a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 1-to-3 versus Seattle and 3-to-1 against every other team.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully you didn't need those damning numbers to tell you to sit Kaepernick this week. Even at a basement price of $4,600 (9.2%) in FantasyScore, he isn't worth the low-ceiling risk.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick less effective rushing

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 18:35:30 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is averaging 6.2 rush attempts per game this year compared to 5.8 attempts last season, but his yards per attempt have fallen from 5.7 to 4.7.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's numbers have been down in just about every category this year, and at this point, it's tough to justify using him at FantasyScore regardless of the opponent. He definitely should be avoided in Week 15 as the 49ers take on Seattle on the road.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick has struggled vs. SEA

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 16:39:12 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has struggled so far in his career against the Seattle Seahawks, who the team faces this week. Kaepernick has thrown two touchdowns and seven interceptions in four games played against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick ($4,600, 9.2%) is an extremely unattractive option this week, especially considering his history against Seattle. Look elsewhere at the quarterback position on FantasyScore for Week 15.

49ers | Missed playoff will cost Colin Kaepernick

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 03:56:35 -0800

Should the San Francisco 49ers miss the postseason, which looks increasingly likely following a 24-13 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Dec. 7, QB Colin Kaepernick will be hit with a $2 million "de-escalator" clause built into his contract. It would drop his salary from $12.4 million to $10.4 million in 2015.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick praised by OC

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 15:43:26 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is still commanding the offense extremely well, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. "At times, he's playing better than he's ever played, there's no question."

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick ($6,300, 12.6%) hasn't had a standout season, but he's got the job done so far. Be that as it may, he faces a tough matchup Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, who only allow 215 passing yards per game to quarterbacks.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick hurt by drops

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:02:47 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick only completed 43.8 percent of his passes in the team's Week 10 in part because the team dropped six passes during the game, which is most by any team this season.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has had solid completion percentages throughout the season, so this type of performance should not continue. Kaepernick will be facing the New York Giants in Week 11 and could be a good starting option.

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.
