QB - FA
On Wednesday, the Las Vegas Raiders held a workout for free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick.
According to Ian Rapoport, this marks the first known workout by the 34-year-old in years. Kaepernick last played in an NFL game in 2016 for the 49ers. He completed 1011 passes for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns, and 30 interceptions in his six-year career. He also rushed for 2,300 yards and 13 touchdowns. Fantasy managers should withhold any excitement given that Derek Carr is squarely at the helm in Vegas; however, if he were to sign, he would become an intriguing player, though chances are good his ADP would far exceed his value at this point.
While Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned, Mark Maske of The Washington Post notes that there are increased hopes by some in and around the NFL that circumstances are more favorable for a team to sign the veteran free agent.
If he does sign this offseason, Kaepernick would almost certainly enter the new year in a back-up role, giving him little to no immediate value in fantasy football leagues.
The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec "can't see" the Ravens signing Colin Kaepernick at this point.
After multiple rumors last week regarding Baltimore's interest in Kaepernick, Zrebiec believes Kaepernick's opportunity to be signed has passed. There was reportedly a rift between ownership and the coaching staff in regards to signing him, but it appears those discussions have dwindled down. It is looking more and more likely that Kaepernick will not find a home in training camp this season.
Baltimore Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec is reporting the team has had "direct discussions" with free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick about the possibility of signing him.
Zrebiec later added that "Colin [Kaepernick] wants to play" and that the Ravens are currently "weighing the decision." Although it was rumored that Baltimore would bring in another free agent signal caller, Robert Griffin III, in for a visit, the team ultimately decided against the notion. With the way this is going, I fully expect Kaepernick to become a member of the Ravens' organization sooner rather than later.

Similar to Zrebiec's report, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said that Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and Kaepernick have kept in contact over the summer and that there is a mutual interest in a union. To me, this could indicate that Joe Flacco's back injury could be more severe than what is currently being reported. As of now, the Ravens are holding Flacco out for one week. However, there is a possibility that the signal caller could miss an extended amount of time.
