Colin Kaepernick looking to stay hot on prime time: Fantasy Implications

USA TODAY Sports

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick looking for another big game on prime time. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is looking to extend his hot streak on prime time. For his sixth straight career start, Kaepernick will be pitted against the Seattle Seahawks and their top-ranked defense.

It will be Kaepernick's first bout against the Seahawks, in what will be the first of many. Kaepernick has been rock solid on primetime, having won 2 of 2.

Fantasy Analysis: Kaepernick's first career start came on prime time against the Bears, who he lit up, securing his job as the starter in San Francisco. His second prime time game was against the Patriots last week, where he tossed four touchdowns, outscoring Tom Brady in Foxboro.

Kaepernick has been explosive for the 49ers and the defense gives him a lot of opportunities. With two 100-plus QB ratings under the night lights and a 6-1 TD-INT ratio, Kaepernick is a starter-worthy option in the fantasy finals.
