It's been reported that Colin's foot injury was much more serious last year than it was believed to be. Maiocco reports that Kaepernick didn't require any surgery for the foot and that doctors only asked him to rest it during the offseason, and now Kaepernick is stating that it will be a non-factor this season.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news and could possibly explain some of the ups and downs for Kaepernick last year, despite the fact that he still had a very solid year as a fantasy QB. If nothing, the injury likely at least slowed him down which had to have an effect on his sacks and rushing totals.

Kaepernick gave an extensive look today at his throwing ability. He looked particularly sharp early in camp today as he completed eight of his first nine passes in 11-on-11 drills. It didn't end as well as it started though as he finished by missing on five of his final seven passes, with a mixture of accuracy issues, balls hitting off receivers’ hands and solid defensive plays.

Fantasy Impact: We all know what Kaepernick can do with his legs, but the bigger question is can he be equally dangerous in the pocket? If he can improve that part of his game, Kaepernick has a shot to be a top 5 fantasy QB with a plethora of legitimate receiving options in Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis, Steve Johnson and Brandon Lloyd.

Kaepernick has looked strong this preseason and gets his best receiver Michael Crabtree back after missing him most of last season. He also played on an injured foot most of last year. He should be able to run better this season and with Crabtree back, he should be able to up his passing numbers.

Needs to be more consistent through the air to crack the elite tier. | Aug 20th
Colin Kaepernick revealed this week that he played through a chipped bone and ruptured capsule in his foot last season. Is that why the 49ers offense struggled for a two-month stretch in 2013?

Great tools, but a conservative offense translates into some dud weeks.

In fantasy you have to have a player that will put up more than 30 TD's in a season for you to win your championship. Kaepernick will not break 30 TD's in 2014.

Kap should be even better in 2014 now that Michael Crabtree is healthy again, but he still lacks consistency as a passer. There is still top-5 upside here, however.

For much of last season, Colin Kaepernick’s foot put him on the 49ers’ injury report. But Kaepernick always played through it, and he said at the time that it wasn’t a big deal, joking that it was just a hangnail. Now Kaepernick says it was much more serious than that. In fact, Kaepernick told the…

Has a solid WR group around him and a tight end in Vernon Davis who is on a mission. Probably will never live up to his potential that people placed upon him a couple seasons ago, but still a solid low-end QB1, high-end QB2.

I think Kaepernick is the new Michael Vick and I do not mean that in a negative way. He is a popular player on a good team that makes plays with his feet that nobody can make, but there just is not enough production in the passing game to warrant ranking him in the Top 5. Too many people rank him in the Top 10 among fantasy, because of his exciting style of play.

will have a much better season
Fantasy Team Advice | Aug 18th
We will pay attention to the 49ers offseason with a great deal of interest, as the coaches have talked about letting Kaep air it out more this year, which should spell fantasy success for his owners. His current ADP offers tremendous upside for owners willing to take a chance come draft day
Legion Report | Aug 16th
If you miss out on one of the big boys, we feel that Kaepernick and Cutler offer the greatest amount of upside for fantasy owners. The San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that since 2011, the 49ers have not ranked any higher than 31st in the NFL in Passing Attempts. Additionally, Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman expressed that they could stray away a bit from their ground-pounding roots. San Fran bolstered their WR corps by adding Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd to a group that already included Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Kaepernick had a dismal season last year totaling 3,197 Passing Yards and 21 TDs on only 416 Attempts in 16 Games. We consider Kaepernick on the 3rd Tier of Fantasy QBs, however he carries one of the highest ceilings within that tier.

I’m betting big on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick this season. That might sound crazy since he’s still in Jim Harbaugh’s run-heavy offense, but allow me 600 or so words to persuade you: 1. He has the best receiving corp he’s ever had. With Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis, new addition Stevie Johnson, and most importantly, a healthy Michael Crabtree, the 4...
