Fantasy Analysis

Using the word "disappointing" to assess Kaepernick's first season as a full-time starter is probably too harsh, but fantasy owners had expected bigger numbers from what was just the 13th-most productive fantasy quarterback last season. The super-mobile Kaepernick has admitted that a lingering foot injury affected his play, but he still finished third among all triggermen in carries, fourth in rushing yards and second (tie) in rushing touchdowns. While the fourth-year pro sports a very powerful and usually precise arm, Kaepernick struggled occasionally in the throwing department without his favorite target, Michael Crabtree (Achilles' tendon surgery), who missed the first three months of the 2013 season. Looking ahead to 2014, a modest uptick in Kapernick's passing production is likely. He obviously will throw more effectively with a 100-percent-healthy Crabtree on the field, and talented targets Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin are both returning. The 49ers have added Stevie Johnson in the hopes of shoring up a previously shallow WR depth chart. Head coach Jim Harbaugh has hinted he would like to open up the San Francisco passing attack a little more. However, it's hard to imagine Harbaugh frequently straying from his proven run-the-ball-and-play-good-defense philosophy, which, unfortunately, sometimes results in Kaepernick operating as a game-manager. The 49ers rarely get into shootouts; Kapernick's 420 pass attempts last season ranked just 20th (tie). We've learned that San Francisco seems content to turn Kaepernick lose as a scrambler mainly in the playoffs, so he'll give you only an occasional big outing on the ground during the regular season. Consider him a low-end fantasy QB1 prospect.

Passing: 3485 Yards, 24 TD, 9 INT.
Rushing: 550 Yards, 4 TD.
