Colin Kaepernick: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Kaepernick (shoulder) has ligament damage in his right thumb and may need surgery, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Kaepernick (shoulder) had surgery to repair a torn left labrum, and he is expected to require 4-6 months for recovery, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Kaepernick should be healthy long before training camp, especially considering that the injury is to his non-throwing shoulder. The bigger question at this point is whether he has a future in the San Francisco organization, and while we probably won't get an answer anytime soon, the 49ers are headed for a top-five pick that would allow them to select one of the draft's top signal-callers.
Kaepernick (shoulder) will miss the remainder of the season after being placed on injured reserve by the 49ers, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per NFL.com, Kaepernick is slated to undergo surgery on his non-throwing shoulder either Monday or Tuesday. Dylan Thompson has been signed off the practice squad to replace him. Barring injury, Blaine Gabbert is on track to run the show under center for the remainder of the season. This certainly raises questions for Kaepernick's future with the organization, and will be something to monitor in the offseason.
Kaepernick has lost the San Francisco starting quarterback job with Blaine Gabbert set start next week against Atlanta, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Kaepernick has thrown for just six touchdowns against five interceptions in eight games. It's not clear if this is a permanent move, but this may be the end of Kaepernick's tenure in San Francisco.
When asked Monday if Kaepernick would remain the 49ers' starter at QB, coach Jim Tomsula fell short of confirming such an outcome, CSN Bay Area reports. "We're evaluating everything right now," Tomsula said Monday. "We're in the middle of it right now and I don't have any comments on any position on our field right now."

2014

Kaepernick led San Francisco deep into the playoffs in each of his two seasons as starter, entrenching him as the 49ers' franchise quarterback for the foreseeable future. The former second-round pick has emerged as one of the league's elite running threats at quarterback, bolting for 939 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground over the last two years, and he's flashed high-level passing potential at times. He has room for improvement in terms of his consistency as a passer, however, as he failed to hit the 200-yard mark 10 times in 2013, completing less than 56 percent of his passes in seven games. Most of his struggles occurred in the first half of the season, a period in which he played through a foot injury, according to coach Jim Harbaugh. The 49ers were without No. 1 receiver Michael Crabtree (Achilles) for the first 11 weeks, too, so Kaepernick mostly gets a pass for his early-season issues. In the five games Crabtree played last year, Kaepernick averaged 232 yards and 1.4 touchdowns through the air, projecting to about 3,714 yards and 22.4 touchdowns over 16 games. With Crabtree healthy heading into 2014 and Steve Johnson added to the wideout rotation, Kaepernick should be a more reliable passer this year.

2013

After taking over in mid-October, Kaepernick used his rocket arm and mobility to lead San Francisco all the way to the Super Bowl. On the way, the quarterback totaled 8.3 YPA and posted at least two passing touchdowns or a rushing touchdown in five of his seven regular-season starts. Kaepernick's upside was most apparent in the Niners' first playoff game; he threw for 261 yards and two scores while also galloping for a remarkable 181 rushing yards a playoff record for a quarterback and two more touchdowns. That's 52 fantasy points for those counting at home. Although Kaepernick might seem like a risky selection, consider that he ran for at least 50 yards in six games last year (including the playoffs), so he can give you points even when he's struggling through the air. That versatility makes Kaepernick a safe week-to-week play. Of some concern is the loss of top target Michael Crabtree to a torn Achilles' tendon during spring OTAs. Of Kaepernick's 2,406 yards and 14 TD passes from Week 11 (when he took over as the full-time starter) through the Super Bowl, Crabtree accounted for 880 yards and eight scores. The addition of Anquan Boldin should help, but its unlikely Boldin, a gimpy Mario Manningham or untested Quinton Patton and A.J. Jenkins can fill Crabtree's shoes.

2011

While the WAC pistol quarterback figures to be quite raw, Kaepernick is a well-documented hard worker who could earn some starts if Alex Smith slips up. In the event Kaepernick does start, hed be worth a look as a fantasy option due to his 4.51 speed and rare arm strength. Even if hes too raw to make an impact as a passer, he figures to be an instant hit as a runner after piling up 4,109 yards and 59 touchdowns on the ground at Nevada. The 49ers brought Alex Smith back on a one-year deal, which means Kaepernick could be the long-term solution in San Francisco.
