Colin Kaepernick threw for 248 yards, 1 touchdown and added 66 yards on the ground. Unfortunately, he also had 3 interceptions and 1 fumble. The 49ers were sitting pretty in the first half, but allowed the Chicago Bears to come back by allowing turnovers on offense and poor defensive play.

Fantasy Impact: Kaepernick had too many turnovers and probably lost some games for people. Luckily he gets to redeem himself against the Cardinals who just allowed Eli Manning to throw 2 touchdowns on them. Don't let this game fool you, Colin is a top 10 fantasy QB, keep him in your lineup.

Colin Kaepernick started off hot with 2 touchdown passes to Vernon Davis in the first quarter. Game-flow limited his production to 201 yards and those 2 early touchdowns. He added 5 rushes for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact: This is a great start and hopefully a sign of things to come for Kaepernick. He has the chance to be an elite QB1 this year, and I think he is well on his way.

Kaepernick has completed just 54% of his passes during the preseason with no TD passes. The offense has only mustered 2 FGs on his 7 drives. Kaepernick notes that “I’ve never seen worrying help anyone’s problems, or help them get better. So I don’t worry.” (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: We agree with Kaepernick here. It's only preseason and the sample size of data is extremely low. We would anticipate the 49ers' offense will be much more productive when week 1 rolls around.

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.

Went for over 300 all-purpose yards and a touchdown against the Bears in Week 2. Almost 70 of those were rushing though, something that Chicago is very weak at from a defensive standpoint. Don't expect the same results against the Cardinals. He will be a solid QB2 but no more against Arizona.

Colin Kaepernick drew what is believed to be the league’s first penalty for inappropriate language last night. But the 49ers quarterback insisted he didn’t say anything wrong. He was flagged following his second interception, and cameras showed him jawing back and forth with the Bears defense. “I didn’t say anything,” Kaepernick said, via Cam Inman…

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...
