2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
2014 was a disappointing season for the 49ers as a whole, but fantasy owners who selected Colin Kaepernick as a QB2 still got their money’s worth by the end of the season, as he was able to use his impressive rushing to supplement otherwise average passing numbers. Kaepernick’s 19 touchdowns through the air were a mediocre number that certainly wasn’t what fantasy owners had hoped for, but his 10 interceptions limited his downside. Kaepernick has actually been fairly good at limiting turnovers throughout his career, as he has now thrown 50 touchdown passes with 21 interceptions. That’s particularly impressive when you consider how poorly the 49ers offensive line played a season ago. Despite his high-level mobility, Kaepernick fell victim to 42 sacks on the year.

The biggest problem with Kaepernick is, while his rushing numbers make him relatively safe, his lack of pass attempts limit his upside. Kaepernick attempted fewer than 30 passes per game. That puts him down with the likes of Blake Bortles, Andy Dalton and Alex Smith. With Michael Crabtree now gone, Kaepernick will have to get comfortable with a new WR2 in Torrey Smith, who joins the team from Baltimore. That could be a blessing in disguise, though, as Crabtree finished with fewer than 700 yards and only four touchdowns this past year. Kaepernick is a classic fantasy QB2 heading into this season with his low floor, but he shouldn’t be relied on as anything other than that. The nice thing is he is going around 15th among quarterbacks, so you shouldn’t need to pay much of a premium to have one of the better and more reliable backup quarterbacks this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Kaepernick wants out of San Francisco
QB prefers New York as landing spot
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Feb 2, 5:40 pm

San Francisco
The Daily News has learned that embattled 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wants out of San Francisco after a forgettable 2015 that included on-field struggles that resulted in a benching midway through the season and a coaching change after it. The Jets are his preferred destination, according to sources. (New York Daily News)

FFToday's Take: Even though San Francisco just signed Kaepernick to a new deal last season, the structure of the contract doesn't guarantee Kaepernick's 2016 salary (11.9 million) until April 1st, meaning he could be traded or released. The Jets have stated they are interested in re-signing Ryan Fitzpatrick so this move seems unlikely at this time. Stay tuned...


49ers hire Chip Kelly as head coach
Former Eagles coach remains in NFL
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jan 14, 1:54 pm

San Francisco
The San Francisco 49ers have hired Chip Kelly to be their next head coach, the team announced Thursday. Kelly joins the 49ers after three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, whom he led to the playoffs once before being fired with one game remaining in the 2015 season. He was 26-21 overall with Philadelphia. Kelly rose to fame for his offensive style during four seasons and a 46-7 record as coach at Oregon. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Many thought Kelly's time in the NFL had come to close but the former Eagles coach will move to west coast and take over a franchise in a messy situation. The 49ers are coming off a disastrous season that included countless retirements and season-long injuries. Kelly's hiring may signal life for QB Colin Kaepernick who could become a viable fantasy option in Kelly's up-tempo offense.


Mike Shanahan is 'in the mix' for 49ers HC job
Two-time Super Bowl winning coach rejoins long list of candidates
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Jan 13, 5:44 pm

San Francisco
The San Francisco 49ers' head-coaching search has arguably already gone on longer than expected. Now, a new name has either entered or re-entered the picture, depending on which report you're reading: former Raiders, Broncos and Washington coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan has been out of the NFL for the last two years, having been fired by Washington prior to the 2014 season. (CBS Sports)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers coaching search has covered a lot of ground to this point and it appears Mike Shanahan may get a chance to torment fantasy owners once again. The interest in the former Washington Head Coach is logical considering the team's investment in quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Shanahan's success coaching past signal callers. The team is also said to be considering former Giants HC Tom Coughlin and a decision may be on the horizon.


Injury Kaepernick placed on IR, shoulder surgery
Torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 21, 2:30 pm

San Francisco
Colin Kaepernick’s season, and quite possibly his 49ers tenure, is over as he needs surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left, non-throwing shoulder, a league source said Saturday. The 49ers placed Kaepernick on injured reserve and promoted rookie Dylan Thompson from the practice squad, ahead of Sunday’s game at the Seattle Seahawks. (San Jose Mercury News)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers quarterback will likely need 4-6 months of recovery time and can be dropped from an re-draft league roster. Blaine Gabbert will be the starter moving forward. Kaeperick's $11.9 million 2016 salary becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster April 1.
