Kaepernick very well may never turn out to be the quarterback that he was for that brief period a few years ago, but his week 1 matchup pits him against one of the worst 2013 pass defenses in the NFL. It will take a team effort, but when all is said and done, CK should rank among the top-12.

Shootout in Denver bodes well for Luck and a Colts team supposedly willing to throw the ball again.
The Niners looked bad in the preseason but the 'Boys defense is trash. Kaep and co. should rebound with big numbers in Big D.
  
Derek Lofland

Denver should be much improved over their 25th ranking against fantasy quarterbacks, but I still think this game will be a shootout and both fantasy quarterbacks will have big games.
Kaepernick will have a strong start to the season going against a Dallas D that is worse than the unit that allowed the third most yards in NFL history.

In a shootout? Denver's D is much better, tho.
CK gets first crack at worst defense of 2014.
