Colin Kaepernick finds end zone through air and ground for fantasy owners on Monday night

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers quarterback didn't spread the ball around on Monday night, but didn't need to in order to come out with a victory. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick picked apart the Atlanta Falcons secondary by way of his physical wide receivers on Monday night.

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.
