Fantasy Analysis
Season Projections
The 49ers failed in their numerous attempts to trade the disgruntled Kaepernick, so it looks like he'll battle Blaine Gabbert for the team's starting quarterback gig. Last year Kaepernick, who led San Francisco to a Super Bowl during the 2012 season, absolutely collapsed, struggling in all phases of his game while toiling away in a talent-depleted offense and was benched at midseason in favor of Blaine Gabbert, a 2011 draft bust who proved to be a somewhat serviceable starter. Kaepernick also underwent offseason surgeries on his left (non-throwing) shoulder, right (throwing) thumb and left knee, but he's expected to be 100 percent for training camp. Unless new head coach Chip Kelly can work some miracles, the 2016 expectations for Kaepernick are low. While he possesses dynamic scrambling ability and the physical tools necessary to run Kelly's college-style read-option offense, there are strong doubts about whether Kaepernick can make the necessary quick reads and accurate throws. His accuracy declined sharply last season. Some think Gabbert, who completed 63.1 percent of his throws in eight 2015 starts, is the better passer of the two. With a thin receiver corps that includes Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton, Vance McDonald and Garrett Celek, Kelly probably will utilize a run-heavy scheme led by Carlos Hyde and Shaun Draughn. Unless we see a vastly improved Kaepernick in the preseason, it's hard to imagine him being fantasy relevant this year.

Passing: 2982 Yards, 16 TD, 12 INT.
Rushing: 476 Yards, 3 TD.
