Kaepernick had success utilizing Anquan Boldin, and there's no one happier than the 49ers signal caller to see Michael Crabtree returning to his breakout 2012 form after sustaining a torn Achilles. Kaepernick completed 13-of-21 pass attempts, with 11 of those to Crabtree and Boldin. He threw for a touchdown and totaled 197 yards through the air, while also rushing for 51 yards on six carries, including a 4-yard touchdown run on a designed keeper.
Fantasy Spin: It's not the dominant fantasy performance that Peyton Manning or Nick Foles owners are accustomed to, but Kaepernick likely aided many fantasy owners to victory in a crucial week of fantasy football. His 23-point performance in standard leagues will be well-received after a season of inconsistent point totals.
Versus a stout Arizona Cardinals defense in Week 17, Kaepernick remains on the fantasy radar, but as a low-end QB1. Fantasy owners still playing in the regular season's final week should explore other options if available.
