Long run doesn't change things for Colin Kaepernick


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) Colin Kaepernick had another poor passing performance Week 16 against San Diego, throwing for a season-low 114 yards with one touchdown pass. But because he ran for 151 yards, most of which came on a 90-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, he ended up having a standout performance in Fantasy.

But when's the last time you saw a 90-yard run for a quarterback? It doesn't happen every week. Even as athletic as Kaepernick is, his season long was only 23 yards prior to Week 16. That 90-yard touchdown run was a 15-point play in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which means it was responsible for more than half of Kaepernick's 29 Fantasy points. Take it away, and his performance in Week 16 was just as disappointing as in his previous eight games.

Kaepernick hasn't thrown for multiple scores in nine games, averaging 189.9 passing yards during that stretch, and he's averaging just 137.5 passing yards in his last four games. Don't let this performance change your approach to him in the season's final week, when the 49ers visit the Cardinals.


49ers QB Colin Kaepernick tallies 151 rushing yards vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed 15 of his 24 pass attempts for jsut 114 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions but added 151 rushing yards on seven carries in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Kaepernick had little trouble picking up chunks of yards against a defense that seemed adverse to tackling -- the 49ers set a new team record with 355 rushing yards in the game -- but his highlight came on a 90-yard scamper where he went untouched after crossing the line of scrimmage, with the Chargers committing a penalty on the play for good measure.

The rushing touchdown was the first of the season for Kaepernick, and his 151 rushing yards marked a new regular-season high. However, he's also failed to top 175 passing yards in any of his last four games. The 49ers will look to close out the season in strong fashion when they face the Cardinals in Week 17.


49ers' Colin Kaepernick fails to find the end zone Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick failed to find the end zone Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Kaepernick completed 11 of 19 passes for 141 yards. He was under constant pressure, taking six sacks during the contest. When Kaepernick was able to evade the rush, he managed to pull off some big plays. Kaepernick averaged 7.4 yards per attempt. Overall, though, he had a tough time breaking a strong Seattle defense. Over the past four games, the Seahawks have allowed just 27 points. Kaepernick was more effective in the run game, picking up 46 yards on nine carries.

He'll hope for more Week 16 against the Chargers. 


Colin Kaepernick not worth your time anymore


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Things have gone from bad to worse for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He couldn't even muster respectable numbers Week 14 at the Raiders, who had allowed a 22-to-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio coming into the game.

Kaepernick hasn't had multiple touchdowns in a game since Week 6 and has one touchdown pass to four interceptions in his last two games. And it's not like he's making up for it with a bunch of yards either. In three of the last four weeks, he has thrown for less than 200. He now trails Andy Dalton in year-to-date Fantasy production, which tells you everything you need to know about his value.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


49ers' Colin Kaepernick has a tough time Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a tough time Week 14 against the Raiders.

Kaepernick completed 18 of 33 passes for 174 yards and one score. He threw two interceptions, and was sacked five times during the contest. Kaepernick had a tough time getting the offense going, posting a 5.3 yards per completion. When he did complete passes, they were mostly of the short yardage variety. Kaepernick was able to pick up 26 rushing yards on three carries. 

Kaepernick will look for more Week 15 against the Seahawks.


Rebound likely for Colin Kaepernick


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) Since his 343-yard, three-touchdown game Week 6 at St. Louis, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick hasn't been especially productive in Fantasy, contributing no more than one touchdown in any of his five games. But he reached a new low Week 13 against Seattle, throwing for 121 yards (just the second time he's had less than 200 in a game this season) and two interceptions.

He does have a nice matchup Week 14 at Oakland, though. The Raiders don't rank especially low against the pass, but they've allowed 22 touchdown passes, tied for seventh-most in the league, to just five interceptions.

And a big reason they don't rank lower against the pass is because teams don't need to pass all that much against them. They're 1-11, after all. They fall behind big, and usually early, allowing teams to run out the clock against them.

That's the main reason why you shouldn't expect a huge game from Kaepernick in Week 14, but in the process of building up a lead, he's a good bet to throw for more than 200 yards and perhaps even multiple scores. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank him just outside their top 12 quarterbacks for this week, making him less than a slam dunk, but you could certainly do worse at the position.


49ers QB Colin Kaepernick shut down in loss vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had no answer for the Seahawks defense Thursday, completing 16 of his 29 passes for only 121 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions while adding 17 rushing yards on three carries in his team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 13.

Kaepernick also took four sacks for 21 yards, giving him just 100 net yards of passing offense in the rough outing. He managed to piece together just one significant drive, taking the offense from his own 19-yard line to the Seahawks' 19-yard line before taking a sack on third down and settling for a field goal in the third quarter with the 49ers down 16-0. Kaepernick will look to get back on track in Week 14 against the Raiders.


Colin Kaepernick's rushing game disappearing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) 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. 


49ers' Colin Kaepernick limits mistakes in win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did just enough to beat the Redskins Sunday completing 20 of his 29 passes for 256 yards and one touchdown.

His only touchdown occurred on the team’s first possession when he connected with Anquan Boldin for a 30-yard touchdown pass. Kaepernick‘s lone mistake was a third quarter interception which snapped his streak of 129 pass attempts without an interception. He also rushed for 14 yards on nine attempts.

The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.


49ers QB Colin Kaepernick posts modest numbers in Week 11 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed barely over 50 percent of his passes Sunday against the Giants. However, he played much better than his counterpart -- Eli Manning -- who threw five interceptions, which allowed Kaepernick and San Francisco to escape with a 16-10 win Week 11.

Kaepernick completed 15 of 29 passes for 193 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 24 yards on eight carries. His lone touchdown came on a Michael Crabtree 48-yard catch-and-run with 11:38 left in the third quarter, which gave San Francisco a 16-7 lead.

Kaepernick has thrown just one touchdown pass in four straight games. However, he hasn't thrown an interception in three straight games and has just one interception in his last six games.

The 49ers are back in action Week 12 vs. Washington.


Colin Kaepernick throws one touchdown in 49ers' Week 10 win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 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
(11/7/2014) 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
(11/3/2014) 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
(11/3/2014) 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.


49ers QB Colin Kaepernick sacked eight times in Week 9 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took eight sacks in his team's 13-10 loss to the Rams in Week 9.

Kaepernick appeared off his game as the Rams defense continually had him on the run. Even with little time to throw, he managed to complete 22 of his 33 passes for 237 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions, adding 14 yards on five carries.

His score came on a 27-yard play to Anquan Boldin, who was left wide open in the middle of the field for an easy catch before scampering the last 10 yards into the end zone for a touchdown. Kaepernick had a chance to take the lead in the waning seconds of the game, but he fumbled the ball at the goal line on a bang-bang play that was recovered by the Rams and stood after review.

Kaepernick will look for a better result in Week 10 when he heads to New Orleans to play the Saints.


Colin Kapernick throws one touchdowns in 49ers' Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed 24 of his 39 passes for 263 yards with one touchdown and one interception Sunday night, adding 18 rushing yards on three carries in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

Kaepernick was running for his life through much of the night, taking six sacks as the 49ers fell behind early and never found a way to keep up with Peyton Manning. The 49ers left Blaine Gabbert finish the game in mop-up duty. Kaepernick has managed 1,719 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions in seven games as well as 260 rushing yards. He'll square off with the Rams in Week 9 after the 49ers take a bye.


Colin Kaepernick has fine for inappropriate language reduced


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had his fine of $11,000 for inappropriate language reduced by half because there was no evidence of racial language, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Kaepernick still has to pay half the fine after appeal for using "profanity."

Kaepernick was fined in mid-September for using inappropriate language in a Week 2 game against the Bears. Kaepernick, who was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after jawing at Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston, appealed the fine.

"I didn't say anything," Kaepernick said after getting fine in September. "Lamarr Houston said I didn't say anything. We're going to leave it at that."


Colin Kaepernick becoming more trustworthy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) With his team trailing for the entire first half, Colin Kaepernick let it fly Week 6 at St. Louis and put up numbers on par with some of the elite passers in the game as a result. He threw for 300 yards for just the third time in his career and had three touchdown passes for just the fourth time.

It gave you a sense of what his upside could be if the 49ers opened up their offense a little more, but with such a strong defense, they rarely have reason to do that.

Still, with Frank Gore aging, Kaepernick himself has been more of a weapon for them this year, throwing for at least 200 yards every week. While this was his first game with more than 20 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues (in part because it was just his third game with multiple touchdowns), he has at least scored double-digit Fantasy points every week, making him the seventh-best player at the position to date. His rushing ability keeps him consistent.

My assessment of Kaepernick hasn't really changed with this performance. He's a quarterback you can feel comfortable starting every week, but efforts like this one where he sets your team apart will be few and far between.


Colin Kaepernick posts third career 300-yard passing game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started slowly Monday against the Rams, but got untracked with a stunning 80-yard touchdown throw to Brandon Lloyd right before halftime. The sideline bomb propelled Kaepernick to his third career 300-yard passing game as he completed 22 of 36 throws for 343 yards and three scores with no turnovers.

Kaepernick also ran three times for 37 yards and leads all quarterbacks with 242 rushing yards this year.

Kaepernick's second touchdown throw was his most impressive. Rolling left to escape a heavy rush, Kaepernick tossed an 11-yard strike over two defenders to Anquan Boldin in the back of the end zone. Kaepernick later hit a wide-open Michael Crabtree for a 32-yard touchdown, giving him his first three-touchdown performance this season. The 80-yarder to Lloyd was the longest completion of Kaepernick's career.

He visits the Broncos for Sunday Night Football.

Colin Kaepernick efficient in Week 5 win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick avoided mistakes in the Week 5 home win over the Chiefs. He completed 14 of 26 throws for 201 yards and a touchdown and did not commit a turnover despite being under heavy pressure and taking three sacks.

Kaepernick, who ran 10 times for 18 yards, hit a wide-open Steve Johnson for a 9-yard score in the second quarter. Kaepernick's 29-yard completion to Brandon Lloyd set up the go-ahead field goal midway through the fourth quarter.

Having accounted for seven touchdowns and five turnovers, Kaepernick visits the Rams in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.


Colin Kaepernick a worthy Start of the Week


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick did as he was told Week 4 against Philadelphia, delivering a fine performance as Jamey Eisenberg's Start of the Week (baby).

I include the "baby" because it's what he yells on Sunday afternoons (after "start of the week," of course) whenever his Start of the Week does something notable. It's fairly amusing.

I think it's worth noting, though, that while Kaepernick's Week 4 performance was his best of the season, it wasn't his best by much, at least not in standard CBSSports.com leagues. He scored 23 points after earlier outputs of 21 and 20 points.

So in three of his four games, he has scored at least 20 points even though he has contributed multiple touchdowns in only two of them. His rushing ability makes all the difference. Sunday's performance was his third straight with at least 50 yards on the ground. That's basically like another touchdown.

So has Kaepernick achieved must-start status? I don't know if I'd go there yet. I'm always a little skeptical of a quarterback who doesn't do it all with his arm, perhaps for no good reason. But if nothing else, he's looking more consistent than he was last year and like a good bet for Week 5 against Kansas City.


Colin Kaepernick beats Eagles with arm, legs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw for 218 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 58 yards on seven carries (8.3 ypc) in the 26-21 win over the Eagles. Kaepernick completed 17 of 30 throws in leading his team back from a 21-10 deficit.

The second quarter was especially eventful for Kaepernick. First he threw all the way across the field to running back Frank Gore, who turned upfield for a 55-yard touchdown. On the next drive, Kaepernick threw a 53-yard pick-six to safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Kaepernick cut the deficit to 21-20 on a 12-yard scoring strike to Steve Johnson midway through the fourth quarter. Kaepernick made some of his biggest plays on the ground. On 3rd-and-13 in the fourth, Kaepernick darted 16 yards on a designed run.

He's run for at least 54 yards the past three weeks. Kaepernick plays the Chiefs in Week 5.

Colin Kaepernick close to 80 percent completion rate in loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed 78.4 percent of his passes Sunday at Arizona, but San Francisco was shutout in the second half and the Cardinals rallied for a 23-14 win. Kaepernick completed 29 of 37 passes for 245 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for a team-high 54 yards on 13 carries.

Kaepernick had a very productive first half, completing 14 of 18 passes for 116 yards. He threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on the team's opening drive. Kaepernick had 45 rushing yards by halftime.

He didn't throw an interception or lose a fumble, and he was sacked just once in the loss. The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


49ers list lengthy injury report for Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The 49ers have nine players listed on the injury report for Week 3. Center Marcus Martin, who's nursing an knee injury, was the only player ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Deemed questionable are cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe), tackle Anthony Davis (hamstring), tight end Vernon Davis (ankle) and tight end Vance McDonald (knee).

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick (back), running back Carlos Hyde (calf), defensive end Justin Smith (not injury related) and tackle Joe Staley (knee) were ruled probable for Sunday.

Colin Kaepernick dealing with back issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is dealing with a back issue.

Kaepernick was able to practice in full Thursday, but was listed on the injury report with a back injury. The injury doesn't seem too serious, and Kaepernick should play Week 3.
