Colin Kaepernick nears 300 yards of total offense for fantasy owners

Dilip Vishwanat

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick nears 300 yards of total offense on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made his third consecutive start on Sunday. In Week 13, the 49ers passer threw for 208 yards, with no touchdowns and no interceptions.

Kaepernick also tacked on 84 rushing yards, as the 49ers went on to lose their third game in 2012.

Fantasy Analysis: Kaepernick's ability makes him a high-celing fantasy player, however, he is still very inexperienced. It's going to be difficult for owners to start Kaepernick week to week expecting consistency. The good news when it comes to the 49ers second-year passer is that his floor isn't too low.

Even on an afternoon where he had no TDs, he still managed to rack up nearly 300 yards of total offense. His huge arm and gazelle-like stride makes him a good match-up play week to week. If you need to roll the dice in the fantasy playoffs, Kaep might be a solid play.
