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.
The Cowboys passing game is one of the better ones in the NFL. Unfortunately in Week 1 they are taking on the 49ers defense. Points will be hard to come by this week.

CK gets first crack at worst defense of 2014.

The Niners looked bad in the preseason but the 'Boys defense is trash. Kaep and co. should rebound with big numbers in Big D.
Romo is fine and is at home, plus the Niners are a bit depleted. I think he's better than some think in this one.

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.
Romo has a tough opener, going against a San Fran D that allowed the fifth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks in 2013.
