Kaepernick and the 49ers dominated the Jaguars in all facets, and so much that he did not attempt a pass in the fourth quarter. During a 42-10 blowout, Kaepernick completed 10 of 16 passes for 164 yards and a touchdown, and also ran for 54 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries. Kaepernick made his ground presence known early, as he made his way into the end zone on a designed quarterback keeper for 14 yards in the first quarter and never looked back.
Fantasy Spin: With three total touchdowns, it was Kaepernick's finest fantasy output of the season aside from his 412-yard explosion in Week 1 versus the Green Bay Packers. In a closer game, Kaepernick could have easily logged more yards and fantasy points, but the 49ers visibly eased up on the gas pedal with a huge lead and eventually put backup Colt McCoy in the game for a series.
The 49ers have a Week 9 bye, so Kaepernick's owners will need to find a backup option at quarterback. Afterward, he faces a difficult challenge at home versus a revitalized Panthers defense.
