49ers | Colin Kaepernick on chopping block?

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 20:53:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick faces a "very big uphill battle" to make the 53-man roster, according to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com.

Fantasy Tip: If Kaepernick is cut, Blaine Gabbert would have a little more job security. Chip Kelly has worked miracles before with quarterbacks, but Gabbert remains a speculative QB2.

49ers | QB competition still open in San Francisco

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 16:48:52 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert and QB Colin Kaepernick are still competing for the starting job, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: Gabbert has done little to win the job this preseason, while Kaepernick did more to create news with his pre-game actions last night than he did with his play. The winner is a good bet to carry QB2 value at various points during the season thanks to the volume of plays head coach Chip Kelly's offense usually generate.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick has quiet performance

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:38:02 -0700

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.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick may start Friday

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 13:19:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) could start the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, since QB Blaine Gabbert started the first two preseason games.

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.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick set to debut Friday

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:13:25 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) is "on track" to play against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

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.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick back at practice

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 12:42:27 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) participated in a full warmup practice Monday, Aug. 22. It was his first such participation since Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Maybe now Kaep can ramp up San Fran's quarterback competition. Blaine Gabbert has been decent in the first two preseason games, but he hasn't really flashed. Kaepernick still has a chance to prove he deserves to start, but neither Gabbert nor Kaepernick are starting caliber QBs in traditional leagues.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick showing improvement

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 07:40:49 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) displayed improved velocity on his passes during pregame warmups Saturday, Aug. 20, and remains on target to resume practicing this week, according to head coach Chip Kelly. The team remains hopeful that he will play in the next preseason game versus the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is engaged in a battle this preseason for San Francisco's starting quarterback job with Blaine Gabbert. Although Kaepernick has a higher ceiling, neither player should be viewed as anything more than a QB2 in traditional fantasy leagues.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick has arm fatigure

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 13:33:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) is dealing with arm fatigue what had previously been referred to as a dead arm. Kaepernick has participated in some drills, but has not thrown. He will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: If/when Kaep does return to full strength, he'll still have to win the starting job ahead of Blaine Gabbert. It's a yawner of a quarterback battle, though, as neither one should be considered starting caliber for fantasy squads.

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 08:25:23 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) will practice next week, according to head coach Chip Kelly. Kaepernick is on target to play in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is battling Blaine Gabbert for the starting job. Whomever wins the job will be a QB2 in fantasy, but Kaepernick has much more upside in fantasy.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick limited

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 12:59:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) participated in the handoff drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, but did not participate in any of the throwing drills. Kaepernick did do some throwing on a side field.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is competing with Blaine Gabbert and will need to return to practice if he wants a chance to win the job. Kaepernick would be the better option for fantasy owners if he won the starting job, but owners should consider the winner of the job as a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
