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. 


Colin Kaepernick a bust alert in Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick might be in line for a bad game in Week 3 at Arizona, and he's a bust candidate this week.

The 49ers would love to forget the first game in Levi's Stadium, especially Kaepernick. He passed for 248 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 66 yards, but he also had three interceptions and lost a fumble in a loss against the Bears.

He could always rebound this week against the Cardinals, and he has at least 250 passing yards and two touchdowns in each of his three career meetings with Arizona. But the Cardinals have done a nice job with their pass defense to open the season in containing Philip Rivers and Eli Manning, and the 49ers could be without Vernon Davis (ankle).

That would leave Kaepernick vulnerable, and another poor outing is possible on the road. He is not a Top 12 quarterback heading into this week.

Colin Kaepernick craters with four turnovers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick turned in a careless performance Week 2 vs. the Bears. Kaepernick threw three interceptions, including one throw across his body into traffic, and lost a fumble.

He completed 21 of 34 throws for 248 yards and a touchdown and ran nine times for 66 yards.

Things started well for Kaepernick, who tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree less than three minutes in. But he lost tight end Vernon Davis to an ankle injury in the second half and the offense bogged down. Kaepernick was picked off twice in the fourth quarter by rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller as the Bears stormed back to win 28-20.

Kaepernick will try to bounce back Week 3 at Arizona.


Colin Kaepernick effective early against the Cowboys


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick put on a clinic early against the Cowboys.

Kaepernick made the most of Dallas' early turnovers. On the team's first drive, Kaepernick drove his team down the field in just four plays. He capped it off with a 29 yard touchdown to Vernon Davis. 

The two connected again on the next drive. After a fumble recovery, Kaepernick threw a touchdown on the first play of the drive. Kaepernick led one more scoring drive against Dallas, but it was capped off by a run from Carlos Hyde. 

With his team up by 25, Kaepernick didn't have to do much the rest of the game. He finished 16 of 23 for 201 yards and two touchdowns. He also had five carries for 11 yards.

Kaepernick will take on the Bears Week 2.


Colin Kaepernick ready to put the preseason behind him Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in for a great matchup Week 1 against the Cowboys. 

Kaepernick had a rocky preseason. He completed 54.5 percent of his passes, and failed to get his team into the end zone. In fairness, Kaepernick didn’t receive a ton of playing time, tossing just 22 passes in three preseason games.

That might not matter Week 1, as the Cowboys were awful on defense last season. Dallas allowed 24.75 Fantasy points against opposing quarterbacks. That was the second-worst rate in the league last season. While the club attempted to address some defensive concerns during the offseason, they be without cornerback Orlando Scandrick for this game. 

While Kaepernick hasn’t looked great in the preseason, the team seemed to set him up for a bigger role during the offseason. Michael Crabtree will be fully healthy entering the year, and the team added Stevie Johnson as the third wide receiver. While Frank Gore and company should be solid in the backfield, Kaepernick will keep defenses on their toes with his rushing ability. 

Kaepernick’s draft position varied based on how Fantasy owners felt about him entering the season. He’s set up to make a lot of owners look smart Week 1 against Dallas. 


Colin Kaepernick has quiet preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a quiet performance Sunday afternoon at home against the Chargers in preseason action.

Kaepernick played the first four series and led his team to one scoring drive (field goal). He completed 6 of 12 pass attempts for 59 yards, with no touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked once and finished with a 64.2 passer rating. Over three preseason games,

Kaepernick has compiled 115 yards through the air while completing 12 of 22 passes. He failed to find the end zone in the preseason. He is expected to play in the final preseason gameon Thursday.


Colin Kaepernick describes 2013 foot injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick dealt with a significant foot injury last season that severely curtailed his running, according to the Sacramento Bee. In a Week 2 loss in Seattle, Kaepernick suffered a chipped bone on his forefoot and a ruptured capsule in the ball of his foot.

Kaepernick ran nine times for 87 yards against the Seahawks, then did not top 20 rushing yards again until Week 7. Coach Jim Harbaugh said the team did not call as many read-option plays because "we didn't want to see Colin get hit 12 times a game."

Kaepernick said the injury "was something that was always there. Never spoke about it, never said anything about it because you're a football player, you play through pain. Unless you're being carted off, you should be on the field. If it's something you can play through, that's what you do."


Colin Kaepernick leads two unproductive drives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was unable to lead a scoring drive on two first-half possessions against the Broncos. The first drive ended in a missed 55-yard field goal.

Kaepernick completed 5 of 9 passes for 39 yards. He made one terrible throw off a bootleg, but also wasn't helped by his receivers. No. 1 wideout Michael Crabtree could not hang on to a slant pass on the first play from scrimmage, and Brandon Lloyd had a potential touchdown go off his fingertips.


Colin Kaepernick lets running game do the work


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Quarterback Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to a field goal on the opening drive of Thursday's preseason opener against the Ravens, but he didn't have to do much. Kaepernick dropped back to pass twice, with one incompletion wiped out by a roughing-the-passer flag.

He completed the other throw for 17 yards to tight end Vance McDonald. San Francisco ran five times on the drive, showcasing rookie Carlos Hyde.

Kaepernick plays his next preseason game on Sunday, Aug. 17 against the Broncos.

Colin Kaepernick says 49ers offense 'can do more'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is excited about the offense this year with all his weapons at receiver.

He said in an interview with the media Thursday that having Steve Johnson, Brandon Lloyd and Bruce Ellington to go with Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis and Quinton Patton should open up the passing game.

"I think it gives us an opportunity as an offense to do a lot more," Kaepernick said.

When asked if he would you like to see the offense start tilting more toward the passing game, Kaepernick said: "I want to see this offense do whatever it has to do to win games. That’s really what’s most important, but I’m always good to throw a few more balls."

He added that the offense has the "capability" to become an elite, prolific passing attack.


49ers OC says Colin Kaepernick ready for new offense


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said the team opted to "clean out the garage" and rebuild the playbook for the 2014 season. That could mean more three-receiver sets and perhaps much more passing than the Niners have done in the past.

One reason for the change is because Colin Kaepernick is more ready for what the coaches are teaching him, Roman said. 

"It's his second full year starting, fourth year in the system," Roman said. "He's seeing things now that he didn't see before. He's right on track."

Roman added that the offense will be more prepared for every situation they're faced with. Because the defense isn't quite as loaded as it's been in the past thanks to some injuries and question marks, the offense might have to shoulder more of the load to win games, meaning put points on the board. 

The 49ers averaged a league-low 26.1 pass attempts per game and scored 25.4 points per game (11th best) in 2013. 


Colin Kaepernick, two others, face no charges from Miami incident


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) There will be no charges filed against 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette or 49ers receiver Quinton Patton from a suspicious incident that occurred earlier this offseason in Miami in which Kaepernick was linked to a possible sexual assault, Comcast Sports Net reports.

"No charges, no indication that a criminal act was committed," Ed Griffith of the state attorney's office said. "She was alleging that she may have been the victim of a sexual assault, and there was no evidence."

The announcement brings a conclusion to an episode in which Kaepernick maintained his innocence from the beginning.


Contract breakdown: Colin Kaepernick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Colin Kaepernick signed a six-year, $126 million deal with just over $60 million in potential guarantees with the 49ers, but according to ProFootballTalk.com the quarterback will have to play well to receive much of that promised money.

Per the site, only $13.073 million is guaranteed. The rest of the $61 million will be converted into full guarantees on a yearly basis. Every year, before April 1, the Niners have the right to either keep him for what's on the contract or cut him. For instance, next year he's guaranteed $12.4 million, but only if the Niners keep him on the roster by the beginning of April, 2015. Kaepernick could also receive the yearly salaries if he's injured. 

There's also a de-escalator clause in the contract where Kaepernick loses $2 million in guarantees per season if he doesn't play in the Super Bowl or isn't named first- or second-team All-Pro.


Colin Kaepernick signs big extension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick signed a big contract extension Wednesday, reports the NFL Network.

The deal is reportedly worth six years for $126 million with $60 million guaranteed. He was scheduled to make less than $1 million this season prior to the extension.

Kaepernick has led the 49ers to the Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game in consecutive years since taking over for Alex Smith midway through the 2012 season.


49ers, Colin Kaepernick ready to talk new contract


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) The 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick's representatives are meeting this week to discuss a contract extension, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The report says this is believed to be the first face-to-face meeting since the sides met during the scouting combine in February.

That the two sides are meeting again suggests the 49ers are convinced that nothing will come from the City of Miami Police investigation that involves Kaepernick and two other players. That investigation began April 3 and created a lull in contract talks between the two sides. It is ongoing but is expected to be resolved this month.

The 49ers now have the salary-cap space to move forward with a contract that almost certainly will make Kaepernick the highest paid 49er and that could be one of the most lucrative in the league. He could be looking at a contract that pays around $18 million annually.

Kaepernick would make less than $1 million in base salary in 2014 absent an extension.


Harbaugh expects huge year from Colin Kaepernick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/2014) 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said he expects a "real breakout" year from quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2014. The optimism for that is partially because of the firepower around him, but it also has to do with how Kaepernick has developed thus far. 

"He just has the look and feel that he's going to break out, more so than he already has," Harbaugh said per ESPN.


49ers want Colin Kaepernick extension done by July


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) The 49ers will get some cap space after June 1, some of which they'd like to use to sign quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a long-term extension. Comcast Sportsnet reports that the team would like to get a deal done with Kaepernick before the start of training camp in late July. 

Currently, Colin Kaepernick counts just $1.63 million against the cap for the 2014 season. 


No update in investigation involving Colin Kaepernick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/5/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said he's "changed my way of thinking" following an ongoing police investigation in Miami involving himself and two other NFL players, reports ESPN.

Police are investigating what they have described as a "suspicious incident" at a Miami hotel involving Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quinton Patton, Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and a 25-year-old woman on April 1. Police said last month that it was not a criminal investigation.

A Miami police spokesman said this week that there was no update on the investigation nor is there a timeline for any new information.

"It's been put out that I did something wrong," Kaepernick said. "Even though it's a bad circumstance, a bad situation, I feel like ultimately I've been blessed because it's changed my way of thinking. It's made me stronger. It's made me look at things differently."


No timetable on Colin Kaepernick deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke would not set a timetable on the contract talks with quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who's entering the final year of his deal.

“Negotiations of these are long, can be drawn out, can be tedious,” Baalke told the San Jose Mercury News. “It takes a lot of work, thought and engineering."


49ers, Kaepernick put contract talks on hold


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/18/2014) With Colin Kaepernick involved in a "suspicious incident" that he claims he had no wrongdoing in, he and the 49ers have put contract extension talks on hold

NFL Network reports that the Niners are the ones who pumped the brakes on a new deal, but it wasn't like a new deal was close to happening anyway. Per the report, the two sides were not close on terms. The deal is expected to eventually carry a value at $18 million per season.


Kaepernick indicent: Lockette called 911 twice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette appears to be the one who called 911 in regards to the incident involving a woman ending up in the hospital following an evening spent with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quiton Patton and Lockette on April 2.

According to a police report obtained by WINZ-AM in Miami, Lockette called 911 twice after the woman refused to leave his apartment. Miami police confirmed to CSN Bay Area that the new police report is accurate, but they declined further comment because Miami police didn't make the report public.

Lockette called police at 12:03 a.m. and 12:20 a.m. on April 2 because a woman was lying naked on Kaepernick's bed and refused to leave. Miami Fire Rescue was eventually dispatched to the apartment and the woman was taken to the hospital around 12:32 a.m.

Kaepernick, Lockette and Patton were all named in the original incident report, which was filed by the unnamed woman on April 3 and released to the public April 10. The incident report doesn't make any accusations against anyone, but the woman did say that after getting naked in front of Kaepernick, he left the room. After that, she woke up in a hospital room and didn't "remember how she got there or who transported her to the hospital." The woman also mentioned alcohol and marijuana in the incident report.

Kaepernick has maintained that he did nothing wrong. As of Monday, no charges have been filed and the incident is still under investigation.


Colin Kaepernick responds to 'suspicious' allegations


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter on Friday to deny any wrongdoing in a police investigation in Miami involving two other NFL players and a woman. Per the report, a woman woke up in a hospital after spending time with Kaepernick and players Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette and had no idea how she got there. 

"The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I've seen are completely wrong," Kaepernick said in a series of posts on his official Twitter account. "They make things up about me that never happened. I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but  I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up. I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced."


Colin Kaepernick among those named in 'suspicious incident'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was one of three people named in a Miami-Dade County police report surrounding a "suspicious incident" in South Florida on April 1.  

A spokesperson for the police told CBSSports.com that Kaepernick is not being investigated but that they're following up on an information report involving him. 

Per the report, obtained by CBSSports.com, the woman claims she woke up in a hospital bed without knowledge of how she got there following a visit to see Kaepernick, former 49ers and current Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and Niners wideout Quinton Patton in a Miami-area hotel. It's made clear that Kaepernick and the victim had a previous physical relationship. 

"The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts," general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. 


Boldin expects big year for Colin Kaepernick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin is expecting quarterback Colin Kaepernick to play well this year, and he's excited for his development heading into the 2014 season.

Kaepernick started his first full season in 2013 and has been a dynamic playmaker the past two years, but Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com this could be his best year yet.

"People criticize for him not being a conventional, prototypical quarterback, but there isn't anything that I've seen the prototype quarterback do that he can't do," Boldin said. "He can make every throw on the field, he's a smart guy but he's athletic. When things break down, he's able to make plays. You just look at the playoffs alone, you see him running wild over defenses. He's going to be something to deal with for a lot of years to come. He's still young, he's still learning but he's still willing to listen. He takes advice, but that's still good."

Kaepernick had a solid season in 2013 with 3,197 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions and 92 carries for 524 yards and four touchdowns. He should improve on those stats this season with his full complement of weapons.

The key for Kaepernick going from good to great is likely his rushing prowess, and Boldin said he encourages Kaepernick to run as much as possible.

"My advice to him is any time it's there, run it," Boldin said. "You have the ability. It scares the crap out of defenses whenever you have a quarterback that can take off and get 40 yards on a scramble. Use all the weapons that you have."
