|Colin Kaepernick talks to start at $20 million a year |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Contract negotiations with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, "if they truly get off the ground, will begin at $20 million a year," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie deal and would be willing to play it out rather than settle for less.
"This kid is confident enough and stubborn enough and motivated enough and focused enough to stick to that position no matter what the 49ers put before him," La Canfora wrote.
|Report: Colin Kaepernick's reps using Jay Cutler deal as 'floor' |

(2/23/14) The 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick are discussing a contract extension, and Kaepernick's reps are using Jay Cutler's recent extension "as the floor for negotiations," reports CSNBayArea.com. Kaepernick is entering the final year of his rookie deal.
The first three years of Cutler's extension are worth $18 million annually, after which the Bears can release him without penalty, the report said.
|Colin Kaepernick has harsh words for Richard Sherman |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/31/14) Usually reserved 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick came out of his shell Friday to finally answer the criticism of teammate and wide receiver Michael Crabtree by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after the Seattle win in the NFC title game.
Kaepernick also spoke about the throat-slash gesture he received from Sherman following an interception off a Sherman tip of a pass meant for Crabtree that clinched defeat.
"It was a ridiculous statement," Kaepernick told the Sacramento Bee about Sherman calling Crabtree an average receiver. "Crabtree's one of the best receivers in the league, in my opinion. ... To me, to have someone try to call him out that way is absurd."
As for the choke sign, Kaepernick asked Sherman, "Did that make you feel better about yourself? Then go ahead. Because I'm not worried about you."
|Colin Kaepernick shows picked off twice in NFC Championship game |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(1/19/14) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick flashed his wheels but threw a pair of costly interceptions in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks.
Kaepernick broke free for a 58-yard run in the second quarter, which led to an Anthony Dixon touchdown, the team's first touchdown of the game. 98 of San Francisco's 128 yards of total offense in the first half came from Kaepernick on the ground. His 58-yard run was the longest run by a quarterback in postseason history.
In the second half, Kaepernick found a leaping Anquan Boldin, who caught a 26-yard pass in the end zone over Earl Thomas for a touchdown with 6:29 remaining in the third quarter.
Kaepernick was overwhelmed by Seattle defense in the fourth quarter, as Kam Chancellor picked him off with 7:37 remaining in the game, which led to a Seattle field goal. And with the 49ers at Seattle's 18-yard-line with 22 seconds remaining, Richard Sherman deflected a pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the end zone, and Malcolm Smith came down with the interception that eliminated San Francisco.
Kaepernick completed 14 of 24 passes for 153 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. He had 11 carries for a team-high 130 rushing yards (11.8 yards per carry) in a 23-17 defeat.
|Can the Seahawks slow down Colin Kaepernick? |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(1/16/14) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick heads into the NFC Championship Game at Seattle playing at a high level. Can the Seahawks slow him down this week?
Kaepernick has at least 20 Fantasy points in five consecutive games, and he's using his legs to help his Fantasy production with at least seven points on the ground in three of his past four outings. But the Seahawks have been able to contain Kaepernick in their brief history matching up with each other.
In three meetings, Kaepernick has two touchdowns and five interceptions, and he's averaging just 11.6 Fantasy points over that span. In two games at Seattle the past two years he's combined for just 21 Fantasy points.
The Seahawks have allowed just Matt Schaub and Andrew Luck to score more than 20 Fantasy points this season, including two matchups with Drew Brees, Cam Newton and the two against Kaepernick. I love the way Kaepernick has played of late, but I can't count on him to keep it up at Seattle against that defense. He's not a great option in any Playoff Challenge leagues.
|Colin Kaepernick lost his No. 1 receiver in Michael Crabtree (Achilles) before the season started, but that doesn't mean his Fantasy value is sunk. Kaepernick should still play at a high level, and hopefully what he did last year in a small sample size will carry over to a big performance. He had five games with at least 18 Fantasy points in seven starts in the regular season, and he carried the 49ers to the Super Bowl with two standout playoff games. If you project Kaepernick's regular-season stats over a full 16-game season he would have finished with 4,146 passing yards, 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions and 948 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. That's pretty awesome. He takes a hit with Crabtree out, but Kaepernick has the look of a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, and we like him with a pick beginning in Round 6 in the majority of leagues. Since he's unproven, you'll still want to pair him with a quality backup option later (think anyone from Eli Manning to Jay Cutler), but Kaepernick should still be able to hold his own with a revamped receiving corps led by Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin. Remember, there aren't many quarterbacks who can run like Kaepernick, and that rushing prowess makes him a unique Fantasy commodity. (Updated 8/6/13) |
