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.
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.

The New York Jets are not and have not been interested in San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has wanted out of San Francisco for months now, and the hiring of new head coach Chip Kelly hasn't changed his stance. A trade remains very likely.

San Francisco 49ers chief executive officer Jed York can see QB Colin Kaepernick winning his starting job back in 2016 if he is healthy. 'There's no question in my mind,' York replied. 'I've always had a very, very high opinion of Kap. Kap's a great kid, he's done a lot of great things for us. And again, this is a fresh start for everybody.'

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's running ability could make head coach Chip Kelly's offensive system more effective. When Kelly was with the Philadelphia Eagles, the offense averaged 6.6 yards per play when QB Michael Vick played and 5.7 yards per play with any other quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's 2016 contract becomes fully guaranteed for injury come April 1, and the 49ers would have to pay him $11.9 million. Many believe the 49ers might try to trade or release him before then.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick could be on his way out of San Francisco, in the opinion of Matt Maiocco of CSBBayArea.com. Maiocco said it's difficult to come up with a scenario in which Kaepernick and the 49ers agree to maintain their union in 2016. If Kaepernick does not return, QB Blaine Gabbert would likely take over the starting quarterback reins.
