49ers rookie Mike Davis injured by Colin Kaepernick pass


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) 49ers rookie running back Mike Davis is the latest San Francisco player to suffer a hand injury trying to catch a pass from quarterback Colin Kaepernick

Randy Moss, Stevie Johnson and Bruce Ellington have all suffered various hand and finger injuries from Kaepernick's high-velocity passes. 

After a 49ers OTA, Davis tweeted, "Kaep owes me a new thumb." 


49ers' Vernon Davis says Colin Kaepernick looks like a different guy


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis spoke to media members Friday and said he likes the improvements Colin Kaepernick has made to his game, according to the team.

"You guys are in for a treat," Davis said. "He looks like a totally different guy."

Kaepernick has been working with former quarterback Kurt Warner to improve his mechanics within the pocket.

"I just want to do everything I can to get better and do what I can to help this team win," Kaepernick said.


49ers WR Anquan Boldin to Colin Kaepernick: 'Be yourself'


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/9/2015) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in the midst of an offseason evolution of his game, but he has one supporter in wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who said in a radio interview that the signal-caller should not reinvent the wheel, per NFL.com. 

"To be honest with you I think he just has to block out everything else around him, stop listening to what people want, what people have to say about you, stop listening to what people want to see you do and just be yourself," Boldin said. 

Kaepernick, who has been working with former QB Kurt Warner, completed 60.5 percent of his passes in 2014, throwing for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 639 yards and one touchdown on the ground.


49ers GM on Colin Kaepernick: 'Working his tail off right now'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke spoke about quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the NFL Combine Thursday, saying the signal caller is "working his tail off right now," per the team's website.

"He’s down in Arizona," Baalke said. "He’s working hard with [former NFL QB and current NFL Network analyst] Kurt [Warner] and several other people. We’ve had a little bit of communication through this first part of the break. But, I know he’s working awfully hard. He knows what he needs to work on. He’s a very dedicated player and I’m sure he feels good about the progress he’s made up to this point. The only reason you go down there and do the things he’s doing is to get better. That’s the mindset and I think he feels comfortable with where he’s at and hopefully that transfers to the field."

Baalke also addressed the parts of Kaepernick's game on which he's working in Arizona, saying, "I know that what he’s down there working on is just all the technique things that go along with the position; footwork, delivery, changing platforms, throwing platforms, arm angle. He’s working on all of that stuff. And, being able to take a little pace off of the ball when he needs to take some pace off of it."

Kaepernick completed 60.5 percent of his passes in 2014, throwing for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 639 yards and one touchdown on the ground.


49ers' new QB coach excited to mentor Colin Kaepernick


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/9/2015) New 49ers quarterback coach Steve Logan, who has mentored Jeff Blake, David Garrard and Matt Ryan, said he's looking forward to working with Colin Kaepernick.

“If I was going to make a list of what do you want to coach – let’s draw up a guy you want to coach — those first two boxes you check are accuracy and decision-making," Logan told a Raleigh-based radio station last week, per the team's website. "He’s really good with both of those right now."

Logan will be asked to develop Kaepernick's complete game, per the team's website. Kaepernick, 27, accounted for 20 touchdowns and 15 turnovers last season but threw for a career-high 3,369 yards.


49ers CEO York: 'Defenses are not going to want to play against us'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) 49ers CEO Jed York confirmed the promotion of quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst to offensive coordinator during an interview with NFL Network on Friday. York is particularly excited about Chryst, who has been the quarterbacks coach since 2011, continuing to work with quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

“With Kap, you got a guy in Geep Chryst who knows him better than anybody else,” York said, per CSNBayArea.com. “You have a great guy in (quarterbacks coach) Steve Logan who is coming to come in to work with him on fundamentals and allow us to put together a system that’s going to put Kap in the best position to make plays.

“How many quarterbacks in this league can run 90 yards for a touchdown? I can’t think of many. But you have to put Kap in a position where he can make those plays. And put Kap in a position where we can run the ball (and) we can throw the ball in ways that allow him to be successful and let him be the absolute stud that he can be on the field. And I think that’s what you’re going to see from us next year. Defenses are not going to want to play against us because you’re not going to know where we’re going to hit you.”


49ers' Tomsula to unleash Colin Kaepernick as a runner?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) The 49ers introduced Jim Tomsula as the team's 19th coach in franchise history on Thursday. Tomsula indicated that he could unleash quarterback Colin Kaepernick next season as a runner, a la 2012 when he averaged 6.6 yards per attempt and rushed for a career-high five touchdowns. He has only scored five touchdowns on the ground since 2012.

"I'm a big fan of running," Tomsula said, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

Tomsula, 46, has little head coaching experience.

He was the top boss of the Rhein Fire of NFL Europe in 2006. He has been with the 49ers since 2007 as coach of the defensive line, but was named interim coach on Dec. 27, 2010, following the firing of Mike Singletary. The team chose to go with Jim Harbaugh four years ago and now Tomsula will be Harbaugh's successor in San Francisco this time around. He did not reveal who he'll keep on staff during his presser. 

Kaepernick registered season highs in attempts (104) and rushing yards (639) last season. He also passed for 3,369 yards with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, failing to reach the postseason for the first time in his career as a starter.

"I'm excited about the possibilities, about the things we can do with Colin Kaepernick and how we can help keep growing," Tomsula said, per the Bay Area News Group.

"I think he can run. I think he can throw. I think he can change the pace of the game. I think he's very intelligent."

Tomsula will speak with Kaepernick, as well as with Frank Gore and other members of the 49ers later on Thursday.


Kurt Warner wants to teach Colin Kaepernick to 'play with his mind'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) Former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner will begin working with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick next week. Warner said Thursday he wants to teach Kaepernick to "play with his mind" rather than just his powerful arm and legs, per the San Jose Mercury News.

"It’s really going to be about seeing where he’s at as a quarterback and seeing how far we can push it to teach him how you play the game with your mind, as opposed to your arm and your legs," Warner said Thursday morning on CBS Radio’s Tiki and Tierney Show.

Warner said he is trying to help Kaepernick "grow" as a player.

"He’s gotten by on athleticism and he’s made some great plays and had some great games," Warner said. "But I think the goal is, in the time that I’m going to have with him, is just to see where he’s at and what he knows about the position and how far we can push the envelope as far as helping him develop as a pocket passer."


49ers' Kaepernick to train with Kurt Warner during offseason


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) Wanting to hone his quarterbacking skills, Colin Kaepernick’s agent told The Sacramento Bee Kaepernick will train with former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner during the offseason.

Warner is a Super Bowl-winning quarterback and four-time Pro Bowler. A traditional pocket-passer, Warner is expected to improve Kaepernick’s passing skills.

Kaepernick is coming off his least efficient season as a three-year starter for the 49ers. In 2014, Kaepernick was sacked 52 times which led the league. He also threw a career-high 10 interceptions.

He admitted he tried to improve his mechanics during the season, but was reluctant to do too much in fear of regressing.

"It's hard to break habits in season," Kaepernick said. "You don't want to completely try to change something because it can throw off everything else you're doing."


49ers' Colin Kaepernick tosses two scores in finale


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick tossed two scores Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Kaepernick completed 15 of 26 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Kaepernick was also active with his legs, rushing for 63 yards. His legs were certainly a factor on his first touchdown throw. Kaepernick looked as if he was going to take off before finding Anquan Boldin wide open in the middle of the field. Boldin was able to take the pass 76 yards for the score. Kaepernick's next touchdown wouldn't come until the third quarter. He hit Bruce Miller on a 3 yard strike. 

Kaepernick finishes the year with a career-high 3,369 passing yards. He tossed 19 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He also set a career-high in rushing yards, finishing the year with 639. 


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.
