San Francisco 49ers second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick got his second career start on Sunday versus the New Orleans Saints. In Week 12, Kaepernick defeated the Saints, throwing for 231 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 27 yards and a score.
Kaepernick showed that he can provide a spark for this 49ers offense. He has been able to turn an average but efficient unit into a dynamic threat.
Fantasy Analysis: Kaepernick is worth fantasy ownership already. He is always a threat to make a big play, either with his legs or his powerful arm. San Francisco's play-calling was geared toward Kaepernick -- running and throwing, he had 31 attempts.
Kaepernick also doesn't make the mistakes you'd see in someone with his level of experience. San Francisco's schedule lightens up going forward, so consider Kaepernick a starter-worthy play at QB. But this all depends on him remaining the starter, so follow the newswire if owning a 49ers QB.
