Needs to be more consistent through the air to crack the elite tier.
Outstanding August reminds us he was the 8th best QB in '13 despite run first team.

will have a much better season

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.
Wilson is extremely under ranked in terms of fantasy value this year. Wilson was the ninth ranked fantasy quarterback in 2012 and the eighth ranked fantasy quarterback in 2013. He is only entering his third season and should have a healthy WR Percy Harvin this year. I think he is easily a Top 10 fantasy quarterback with his solid touchdown totals, low turnovers and strong rushing statistics.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
Wilson's upside is a bit capped with Seattle's solid ground game. 2014 is the first year that he can potentially put up over 30 TD's so you have to love his upside.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
If Seattle's defense wasn't so good I think Wilson would be much higher than this, but as it is he doesn't need to put up big numbers very often. Seattle loves running the ball and playing defense. Wilson's upside at the moment is in his scrambling ability, but once again, if Seattle has a lead they aren't pushing Wilson to run much in fear of him getting injured.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice

Great tools, but a conservative offense translates into some dud weeks.
Even a slight uptick in passing volume could make him a solid QB1.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
Seattle scored on 11/13 Wilson drives this preseason. The scheme keeps him from being truly fantasy relevant, but his already strong game is continuing to develop.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
*Stinking it up big in the preseason. Will need to prove himself to get back into the QB1 range.***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.
While Wilson is not a sexy name, he is one of the best at what he does and that is time management. The Seahawks have a great running attack and tough defense so Wilson will never be relied on too much to carry their team, but rather he will be expected not to lose it. That isn't exactly what you want when it comes to quarterbacks to lead your fantasy team into a championship game. He is a solid QB2 but nothing more.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Kap could 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.
Wilson is rock solid but it appears he's hit his ceiling in Seattle's offense as it is now constructed. It doesn't help that his top two WRs never are healthy, either.

Has looked fantastic in the preseason. This bump (from 18) is warranted.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
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.
Pete Carroll confirmed recently that the Seahawks will remain committed to the run in 2014. In the past two seasons, Wilson tallied 393 Pass Attempts (32nd in the NFL) and 407 Pass Attempts (31st in the NFL) and will probably hover around the 400 mark once again in 2014. Both the running game and defense are so strong that the Seattle Offense doesn’t call for a potent aerial attack. Wilson is as solid as they come and should be considered a stable option in 2014, but not one to topple other fantasy opponents.
