Colin Kaepernick's rushing game disappearing
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/23/14) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running game has disappeared and with it, much of his Fantasy value.
Kaepernick put together another pedestrian Fantasy performance in Week 12, as he finished with 15 points in the win over Washington. He has just 15 or fewer points in each of the team's last five games, and that has coincided, expectedly, with a dip hin his production as a rusher.
Through his first six games, Kaepernick was averaging 40.3 rushing yards and 21 Fantasy points per game, numbers that have tumbled to 18.8 and 14.2, respectively over the last five. He has a tough matchup on the way in Week 13, against a Seahawks defense that limited him to just 19 combined Fantasy points last season, so look for other options.
Colin Kaepernick throws one touchdown in 49ers' Week 10 win

|(11/9/14) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw for one touchdown in the 49ers’ Week 10 win against the Saints.
Kaepernick completed 14 of his 32 passes for 210 yards in the win. He also had 24 rushing yards on four attempts and lost a fumble.
While Kaepernick did not have a big day, his lack of interceptions helped the 49ers rely on its running game and defense to defeat the Saints.
In Week 11, the 49ers play at the New York Giants.
Colin Kaepernick could get going in Week 10
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/7/14) The 49ers offense hasn't been humming quite like we expected recently, which has led to some disappointing Fantasy performances from Colin Kaepernick. Will that change in Week 10 against the Saints?
The Saints have had some trouble with quarterbacks this season, especially those who can run. They have given up rushing touchdowns in consecutive games heading into Sunday's matchup, and Cam Newton picked up 8 of his 12 Fantasy points against the Saints on the ground last week.
The Saints have allowed at least 19 Fantasy points to their opposing quarterback in four of the last five games, and are allowing the 11th-most overall. If Kaepernick is to get going, he's got a good chance to make it happen this week. Consider him a solid Fantasy option in Week 10.
NFL VP explains why Kaepernick's fumble wasn't overturned
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/3/14) The 49ers lost Sunday against the Rams on a controversial play in the final seconds of the game. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick tried a sneak play at the goal line to give San Francisco the go-ahead score, but amid the scrum, he coughed up the football and the fumble was recovered by Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis to seal a 13-10 win for St. Louis.
After the loss, Kaepernick insisted he had a touchdown.
"I know I crossed the line," he said, per ESPN.com. "I did bobble the snap, but regardless."
The play was reviewed by officials, but the call stood. On Monday, NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino explained to NFL Network there was no definitive view showing Kaepernick crossed the goal line before fumbling.
"Kaepernick goes into the pile, the umpire sees the ball loose, he has 55 on St. Louis recovering the loose ball," Blandino said. "It went to review, we looked at it. There's one angle from behind the defense where you can see Kaepernick going toward the ground, the ball does come loose, but you never saw a body part like an elbow or a knee down prior to that. It was impossible to tell where the ball was in relation to the goal line before it came out, so again, the ruling on the field stood. The evidence just wasn't definitive either way, and that's why the call stood as called."
Colin Kaepernick kind of a pest
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(11/3/14) Considering he had his best game of the season, throwing for 343 yards and three touchdowns, when his team last faced the Rams in Week 6 -- and on the road, no less -- 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick seemed like a safe bet for big numbers Week 9 against St. Louis.
But of course, by now, we should know Kaepernick isn't a safe bet for anything. His big-play mentality sometimes clashes with the 49ers' conservative offense, making for some perplexing numbers. That clash may not have been to blame this time, but the numbers were as perplexing as ever.
He took eight sacks against a defense that had recorded only six previously. He was efficient enough throwing the ball, completing 22 of 33 passes with no interceptions, but of course, only three of those passes went for 20 yards or more. And with all the sacks he took, he still lost the ball twice on fumbles.
Granted, his line would have looked a lot better if he hadn't fumbled at the goal line on the 49ers' last play of the game -- one that could have just as easily been called a touchdown -- but that's little consolation to the Fantasy owners who were expecting the world from him.
Is he an automatic sit in what figures to be a high-scoring game Week 10 at New Orleans? Of course not. But he's not an automatic start either.
