You may scoff at the notion of Kaepernick being a bonafide QB1 week in and week out, but thats exactly what he has been and should continue to be, especially this week against the Bears.It has gotten to the point that Cam is only borderline startable against a standard defense. Throw Seattle's elite unit in the mix and Cam drops down to a don't play mid-tier QB2.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bears are 11th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 5 weeks, but the 49ers offense has been dominant the last five weeks with Kaepernick averaging 29.0 fantasy points per game over his last 4 games. Newton is the type of player that can have a big game at any moment, but at this point he is the 14th ranked fantasy quarterback and is a QB2 option on the road against an elite defense.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Kaepernick has been a fine fantasy asset and its the Bears, but they've actually been OK at home defensively. And its still Kaep and the Niners...Seattle defense is still tough and a road date is troubling, but Cam continues to carry upside in spades
