49ers | Blaine Gabbert named starter in San Fran

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 14:55:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert has been named the starting quarterback over Colin Kaepernick, head coach Chip Kelly announced Saturday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Even if there was the competition in the beginning, Kaepernick was rarely ever healthy enough for long enough to make this result a surprise. Given Kelly's offensive tempo, Gabbert's mobility and the amount of time San Francisco figures to be trailing in games this season, the former No. 10 overall pick has a decent shot to return low-end QB2 value in fantasy this season.

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 | San Fran defense to be aggressive

Mon, 16 May 2016 10:48:35 -0700

San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly said defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil's defense will be aggressive and will get after the quarterback. Kelly also said the defense will rely more on man-to-man schemes from the back-end of the defense. "We're going to get after the quarterback," Kelly said. "It's a quarterback-driven league and you have to disrupt the timing of the quarterback or you're going to get picked apart."

49ers | Chip Kelly's pace not too different

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 11:24:48 -0800

San Francisco 49ers new head coach Chip Kelly ran a play every 22.7 seconds with the Philadelphia Eagles this past season, which was the fastest in the league. The 49ers were fifth with a play every 26.5 seconds.

Fantasy Tip: This is a plus for Colin Kaepernick, if the team elects to keep him this offseason. Kaep figures to fit Kelly's offense well, but it will depend on whether they can get the offensive line shored up. Kaep is an intriguing QB2 in fantasy right now.

49ers | Chip Kelly hired in San Fran

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 10:37:45 -0800

Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was hired by the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Jan. 14, as their new head coach. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly takes over a Niners team that is rebuilding and that has plenty of questions on offense. Will Colin Kaepernick be given a second chance? It's totally possible, and with a Kelly-led offense, Kaepernick could be intriguing as a deep sleeper pick in much deeper fantasy leagues next year if they keep him on board. Stay tuned. Kelly should be a big boost to the running game, too, making Carlos Hyde a bargain in the early rounds of drafts next year.
