Summary

Quarterback Rank: #23All Players: #135
Kaepernick had another ho-hum season as the starter for the 49ers. He had some big games but also plenty of duds along the way. He finished with just 20 total touchdowns and completed 60 percent of his passes. Kaepernick did set a career high in rushing, though, running for 639 yards. He even had a 100-yard rushing game during the season. Kaepernick hasn't progressed a ton since entering the league. A new offensive coordinator could do him some good this season, playing to his strengths a little more. Kaepernick has a great arm but will struggle with accuracy at times, missing on throws he should make as an NFL starter. He runs very well and has breakaway speed, being able to make big plays in the running game. He does struggle some to read defenses, though, and isn't always decisive in the pocket. He makes most of his big plays outside of the pocket - throwing on the run or running with the football.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Kaepernick was a bit of a bust last season. He can improve on that but don't count on huge numbers. He is more of a low-end No. 1 or solid No. 2 for fantasy teams. He'll get 3,300 or so passing yards with around 25 total touchdowns and 500-plus rushing yards. He can carry a team any given week but disappear in others, lacking the consistency of an elite fantasy quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick continues to work with former NFL MVP Kurt Warner this offseason, and Warner's goal is trying to get Kaepernick to wait longer in the pocket as a passer before using his athleticism as a crutch. Warner said in a satellite radio interview Monday, April 6, that Kaepernick has relied on his running ability so long that it's a difficult transition to become the type of pocket passer necessary for success in the NFL.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been working with former NFL QB Kurt Warner this offseason to become a better all-around quarterback. 'For (Kaepernick), it's finding that balance between 'When do I be a quarterback?' and 'When do I be an athlete?' And trying to find that mix between the two,' Warner said. '... So the real question is going to be, when the bullets are flying and guys are chasing after him does he revert back to being an athlete or have we made some progress in making him more of a quarterback and staying in a quarterback-friendly position to be able to make more consistent, accurate throws down the field.'

Colin is working down in Arizona. He's a great dude. He's a real good dude. He's a good teammate. He's a neat cat. Colin's going to do real well. Colin's a great football player and even better person. We're really excited about Colin,' Tomsula said.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick spent five days a week working out, watching film and fine-tuning his mechanics during a 10-week offseason session with quarterback coaches Dennis Gile and Mike Giavondo. 'I don't think there was a throw he couldn't make when he first got here,' Gile said 'I just think the consistency and efficiency of it was what we wanted to get better at, and I think that's where we made tremendous strides. He became a lot more consistent and efficient with those balls.'
