    Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) was brought up the Miami Dolphins' front office as a possible contingency plan if QB Ryan Tannehill (leg) is forced to miss time.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick is easily the most talented quarterback available, but his off-field stances have caused friction with some teams. This situation will need to be monitored depending on the severity of Tannehill's injury.

  • Posted: 5/19/2017 10:54am ET

    Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is reportedly 'not a fit' for the Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

    Huddle Up: Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is known to love Kellen Moore as Dak Prescott's backup, so this report should not come as much of a surprise. Kaepernick probably has no desire to compete for a backup job either since he believes he is still a starting quarterback in the league.

  • Posted: 5/15/2017 10:03pm ET

    Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) has drawn interest from the Seattle Seahawks, who reached out to his agent last week. The interest in Kaepernick as a potential backup quarterback is 'legit.'

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick may be the best quarterback available, but time is running out on him having any fantasy value whatsoever entering the 2017 season. It's unlikely that will change, as it appears the former Super Bowl-starting quarterback will have to ultimately settle for a backup role.

  • Posted: 5/15/2017 11:12am ET

    Free-agent QBs Colin Kaepernick (49ers) and Robert Griffin III (Browns) have drawn interest from the Seattle Seahawks as possible backups to QB Russell Wilson.

    Huddle Up: Wilson's job is not in jeopardy. Kaepernick and Griffin both possess similar playing styles to Wilson, though, so signing either of them as Wilson's backup makes sense. Continue to draft Wilson as a QB1.

  • Posted: 5/11/2017 1:44pm ET

    Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) has drawn interest from three teams since the start of free agency, according to Kaepernick's adviser.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick is the most talented free-agent quarterback remaining and is actually coming off a nice season. He managed over 2,700 total yards and 18 total touchdowns in just 12 starts. Kaep has starter ability, but he obviously has no value of now. If he is signed, he'll be worth taking a shot on in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 6:12am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract Friday, March 3, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: He averaged 187 passing yards and 1.33 touchdowns per game last season along with 39 rushing yards. He only threw four picks last season, which was a vast improvement. He is shell of the dynamic dual threat that took his team to the Super Bowl four years ago. He's a meager QB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 3/1/2017 6:08am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's new agents, Jeff Nalley and Sean Kiernan, have informed all 32 teams that Kaepernick will be opting out of his contract.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick's fantasy hourglass is getting pretty thin. He could be a midrange QB2 at best right now.

  • Posted: 2/14/2017 10:00pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is open to returning to the team in 2017, according to 'those close to him.' The 29-year-old is due to earn nearly $15 million in base salary, but he can also opt out of the deal and enter free agency, which begins on March 9. San Francisco also has the option of releasing him with little ramifications to their salary cap.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick ended up putting together a pretty nice season, finishing with 16 touchdowns versus only four interceptions, while recording a 90.7 QB rating -- his best since 2013. Furthermore, he averaged nearly 40 rushing yards per game. With a new coaching staff and general manager, San Francisco ultimately may decide to go in a different direction, but if Kaepernick still has a starting job next year, he could end up being a solid QB2 option.

  • Posted: 2/10/2017 9:05am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is not expected to be a trade target again this offseason for the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick-to-Denver looked like it was going to happen last offseason, but the compensation can never get worked out, and the Broncos ended up sticking with Trevor Siemian and drafting Paxton Lynch. Denver has reaffirmed its commitment to developing both several times already this offseason, so it appears Kaepernick will have to look elsewhere for a potential starting gig if he opts out of his deal with San Francisco.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 6:04pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 28 of his 38 pass attempts for 266 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 16 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He also ran six times for 15 yards and a score, and added a two-point conversion.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick has thrown for 10 touchdowns over his past six games, and outside of that disastrous snow game in Chicago in Week 13 he has been a borderline low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 down the stretch in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 10:51pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 20 of his 33 pass attempts for 183 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also rushed three times for 21 yards.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick had an OK game, but he did not have a huge statistical game against the league's worst-ranked passing defense. He remains more of a QB2 in fantasy leagues headed down the stretch.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 7:10pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (neck) was added to the injury report but was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons defense has given up plenty of points this year, but Kaepernick is still nothing more than a desperation QB2 in Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/6/2016 10:16am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will get the start in Week 14 against the New York Jets, according to offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins.

    Huddle Up: After about a month-long run as the second-best quarterback in fantasy behind Aaron Rodgers, the 49ers only allowed Kaepernick to throw five passes and run six times before benching him in the fourth quarter during what was supposed to be a very good matchup against an injury-riddled Chicago Bears defense. The Jets arguably present a better matchup and he'll be at home this time around, but the risk of trusting him outside of a contrarian play in DFS is just too high during the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 9:52am ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will void his contract after the season and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to sources. Kaepernick has not ruled out re-signing with the 49ers during the offseason.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick has posted decent numbers since taking over the starting job and has six touchdowns and one interception over the last three games. Kaepernick can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against certain opponents moving forward.

  • Posted: 11/29/2016 3:01pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is averaging 62.2 yards per game on the ground. In total, Kaepernick has 373 rushing yards on 46 attempts, including one touchdown. 'He's out there, he's in control and when he sees an opportunity he's taken advantage of it,' offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said. In addition to his rushing success, Kaepernick is averaging 277.5 yards per game through the air with eight touchdowns and just two interceptions.

    Huddle Up: Kaepernick has been one of the most pleasant surprises in the fantasy realm after taking over as the 49ers' starter. His running ability gives him a distinct advantage over pocket passers from a fantasy perspective and he should no longer be overlooked. In fact, he should be started this week in a favorable matchup against an ailing Chicago Bears defense.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 2:00pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick completed 29-for-46 passing for 296 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He rushed a game-high 113 yards on 10 carries.

    Huddle Up: Kaep has been more than capable of exploiting favorable matchups in recent weeks. The Niners have midrange fantasy schedule the rest of the way, so keep him in mind for streaming and DFS purposes.
