49ers | Colin Kaepernick not falling behind

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:35:35 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) is not falling behind QB Blaine Gabbert despite still rehabilitating his injuries, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "[Kaepernick] has a great grasp of what we're doing," Kelly said. "I'm really impressed by both [Gabbert] and him and their intelligence and being able to pick up what we're trying to do." Kelly said he hasn't set a timetable for when the starter will be announced.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick is still the most attractive fantasy option, but he may not start, obviously. Gabbert has disappointed throughout his career, but he'll have more intrigue in Kelly's offense. Neither are worthy of QB1 consideration, though.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick working hard

Tue, 17 May 2016 10:02:12 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) has made a good first impression with his work ethic to the new coaching staff, despite asking for a trade earlier in the offseason. He could wind up starting in Week 1. "Works his butt off in rehab, great with the coaches, learning the offense quickly, I like him a lot," one coach said.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's fantasy value is the lowest it has been since he took over as starter a few seasons ago. He still has a cannon, and the fast-paced offense Chip Kelly brings could benefit him in getting the ball out. The weapons around him are still pretty questionable, and he's a midrange QB2 seeking a revival.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick to compete when healthy

Sat, 14 May 2016 17:27:23 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) will compete with QB Blaine Gabbert for the starting quarterback job once training camp begins and Kaepernick is closer to full strength, head coach Chip Kelly said.

Fantasy Tip: If Kaepernick wins the starting gig, his dual-threat ability gives him intriguing upside in Kelly's offense, and he would be worth taking a chance on as a QB2.

49ers | San Francisco not ready to name QB

Fri, 13 May 2016 13:39:12 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) and QB Blaine Gabbert are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job during training camp, and head coach Chip Kelly said he has no idea who the starting quarterback will be in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick likely will be limited during offseason workouts because of several surgeries, so he will not compete with Gabbert until camp. Gabbert posted decent numbers in eight games in 2015, but Kaepernick likely would be a better option for fantasy owners if he starts. Kaepernick appears to be the leading candidate and can be a decent No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job, while Gabbert would be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick not cleared yet

Fri, 13 May 2016 13:17:30 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) has not been cleared to fully participate in offseason workouts at this point but may be able to participate during the mandatory minicamp in June.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick likely will have to compete with Blaine Gabbert for the starting job during training camp. Kaepernick has had success in the past and could play well in Chip Kelly's offense. Owners should monitor the situation because Kaepernick could be a decent No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick's rehab on track

Thu, 05 May 2016 21:38:41 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) is doing an "awfully good job" with his rehab, according to general manager Trent Baalke.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's dual-threat ability could allow him to thrive in Chip Kelly's system, but he is far from a sure thing. Draft him as a high-upside lottery ticket once you have a stable starting quarterback.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick resumes throwing

Tue, 03 May 2016 19:56:44 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) has resumed throwing a "bit", according to a league source Tuesday, May 3, and it appears he will stay with the team to compete with QB Blaine Gabbert for the starting job. Kaepernick was discussed in trade talks with other clubs, including the Denver Broncos, but after the 2016 NFL draft it appears he is now staying put. The Broncos added a quarterback in the first round, as did the New York Jets, another potential landing spot for Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick could flourish under Chip Kelly in his up-tempo offense, so it will be an interesting race to watch in training camp and the preseason. Blaine Gabbert isn't nearly as mobile. Whomever wins the job, they're still nothing more than a QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue big-name QB

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:28:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford are unlikely to be pursued by the Denver Broncos after the team selected QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but Denver could still add a veteran quarterback at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is no lock to start as a rookie, and even if he does beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting gig, he would be a low-end QB2.

Broncos | Kaepernick trade unlikely by Sunday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:15:58 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is not expected to be traded to the Denver Broncos by Sunday, May 1, as there have been no talks of late.

Fantasy Tip: There could still be a successful trade, but it just doesn't seem likely to happen this weekend. Kaepernick has QB1 potential with the 49ers or Broncos, but it's safer to take him as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Colin Kaepernick to DEN still likely?

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:32:00 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is likely to be acquired by the Denver Broncos, in the opinion of ESPN analyst, and former NFL executive, Mark Dominik. Dominik said Wednesday, April 27, on ESPN's Russillo and Kanell, that when Kaepernick met with Broncos team president John Elway, the parameters of a deal and a contract were likely mapped out. Dominik said it didn't benefit the 49ers to let Kaepernick visit the Broncos if a deal wasn't going to happen.

Dominik opined that he thinks a trade could happen Friday, April 29, or Saturday, April 30, because the 49ers are likely set on drafting a quarterback in the first three rounds.

Fantasy Tip: The most upside Kaepernick could possess in fantasy, realistically speaking, would be in the Denver offense. If he lands there, he'll still be a QB2 in fantasy, but he could be an option to plug in your lineups on your starter's bye week.
