Colin Kaepernick confirmed to start in Week 14: Fantasy implications

David Welker

The 49ers have confirmed that Colin Kaepernick will remain the starter for the time being. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed that QB Colin Kaepernick will start against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14. Kaepernick had an up-and-down day against the St. Louis Rams in his third start since displacing Alex Smith. Despite his struggles in an upset loss, Harbaugh is sticking with the second-year man from Nevada.

Kaepernick has thrown for 888 yards, three TDs and one INT on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This shouldn't come as any surprise. Smith was crushed by the benching, and there are still supporters in his camp, but Kaep is going to be the man for the foreseeable future.

I expect him to bounce back and be a quality start in the fantasy playoffs, with QB1 upside. Keep rolling with him.
