San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had another so-so day in Week 14 against the Seattle Seahawks. Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 19-17 victory over the NFC West rival Seahawks, which kept San Francisco's playoff hopes alive and prevented the Seahawks from clinching the division, but it wasn't such a strong day statistically.

Kaepernick completed just 15 of 29 pass attempts for 175 yards and a touchdown against an interception. He also added nine carries for 31 yards, but didn't find the end zone on the ground. The worst thing about his game was his interception, which was poorly thrown and almost cost the 49ers the game.

Still, he found tight end Vernon Davis in the end zone when he needed to and the 49ers were victorious on the day.

Fantasy Impact: On the season, Kaepernick has completed 190 of 332 passes for 2,487 yards with 16 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He's also added 78 carries for 407 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, which definitely helps. Unfortunately, Sunday's game marked the ninth time this season Kaepernick threw for fewer than 200 yards in a game. He's not much of a dependable fantasy option at this point.
