Colin Kaepernick injury update: Fantasy owners expecting a follow-up performance

USA TODAY Sports

Colin Kaepernick will give it a go vs. the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick is listed a probable to face the Titans on Sunday. He has a minor foot injury, didn't miss any practice and will play in the late start.

He finally got it going with a 252-yard, two-score game against the Cardinals last week. Obviously, Vernon Davis had a lot to do with that with his 180 yards and both the scores.

Before that, it was ugly and he didn't top more than 150 yards from Week 2-5.

Fantasy impact: It's hard to believe, but people are actually cutting Colin Kaepernick in their fantasy leagues. While he has a huge upside and went nuts last year, it's hard to blame them. Since Week 2, he hasn't even been a QB2 in most formats. Kap gave a glimmer of hope last week, so if he's sitting out there on waivers, you almost have to grab him. As long as he doesn't get sacked too much from the Titans front four and can avoid throwing picks to the ball-hawking secondary, CK could be in for another nice line.
