49ers | Colin Kaepernick open to returning to SF

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 22:00:54 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is open to returning to the team in 2017, according to "those close to him." The 29-year-old is due to earn nearly $15 million in base salary, but he can also opt out of the deal and enter free agency, which begins on March 9. San Francisco also has the option of releasing him with little ramifications to their salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick ended up putting together a pretty nice season, finishing with 16 touchdowns versus only four interceptions, while recording a 90.7 QB rating -- his best since 2013. Furthermore, he averaged nearly 40 rushing yards per game. With a new coaching staff and general manager, San Francisco ultimately may decide to go in a different direction, but if Kaepernick still has a starting job next year, he could end up being a solid QB2 option.

Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue Colin Kaepernick

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 09:05:18 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is not expected to be a trade target again this offseason for the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick-to-Denver looked like it was going to happen last offseason, but the compensation can never get worked out, and the Broncos ended up sticking with Trevor Siemian and drafting Paxton Lynch. Denver has reaffirmed its commitment to developing both several times already this offseason, so it appears Kaepernick will have to look elsewhere for a potential starting gig if he opts out of his deal with San Francisco.

49ers | Coach, GM will meet with Colin Kaepernick

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 14:46:04 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will meet with general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Kaepernick has reached out to both men.

Fantasy Tip: It would behoove the 49ers to at least attempt to get on the same page with the polarizing quarterback. San Francisco has three quarterbacks who are impending free agents. Kaep is not one of them. His running ability really keeps him on the fantasy radar, so don't completely disregard him just yet.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick still undecided

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 11:54:17 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has not decided if he will opt out of his contract this offseason, according to a source. Kaepernick has not talked with head coach Kyle Shanahan or general manager John Lynch at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick will need to make a decision on his contract in the near future, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He may be able to find another starting job if he opts out and could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback depending on his situation.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick likely to opt out

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 08:16:29 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is expected to opt out of his contract when he's eligible to do so March 2, according to a report by ESPN.

Fantasy Tip: The sands in his fantasy hourglass are growing thin after injuries have plagued him the last couple of years. He could still be a matchup play in the right situation.

Jets | Colin Kaepernick of interest to the Jets?

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 09:07:33 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is entering the final year of his contract in due to have a $19.3 million cap figure, and the team can save $16.9 million in cap space by cutting or trading him. One possible destination could be the New York Jets, who named New Orleans Saints receivers coach John Morton as their new offensive coordinator Sunday, Jan. 29. Morton served as the receivers coach in San Francisco from 2011 to 2014 - Kaepernick's first four years in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith appear done in New York, while Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg haven't done anything to suggest they are the long-term answer. Kaepernick doesn't figure to be a long-term answer either, but he did throw for 16 touchdowns versus only four interceptions in 12 games last year. After having Jeremy Kerley serve as his top receiver in 2016, Kaepernick could surprise a bit in 2017 with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker at his disposal.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick leads team to win

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 18:04:30 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 28 of his 38 pass attempts for 266 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 16 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He also ran six times for 15 yards and a score, and added a two-point conversion.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has thrown for 10 touchdowns over his past six games, and outside of that disastrous snow game in Chicago in Week 13 he has been a borderline low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 down the stretch in most fantasy formats.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick tosses pair of TDs

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 22:51:17 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 20 of his 33 pass attempts for 183 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also rushed three times for 21 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick had an OK game, but he did not have a huge statistical game against the league's worst-ranked passing defense. He remains more of a QB2 in fantasy leagues headed down the stretch.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick added to injury report

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 19:10:22 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (neck) was added to the injury report but was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons defense has given up plenty of points this year, but Kaepernick is still nothing more than a desperation QB2 in Week 15.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick to draw another start

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 10:16:55 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will get the start in Week 14 against the New York Jets, according to offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins.

Fantasy Tip: After about a month-long run as the second-best quarterback in fantasy behind Aaron Rodgers, the 49ers only allowed Kaepernick to throw five passes and run six times before benching him in the fourth quarter during what was supposed to be a very good matchup against an injury-riddled Chicago Bears defense. The Jets arguably present a better matchup and he'll be at home this time around, but the risk of trusting him outside of a contrarian play in DFS is just too high during the fantasy playoffs.
