Kaepernick failed to take a step forward last season, struggling much of the year as a passer, especially when top target Michael Crabtree was out of the lineup. He did set many career highs but this was his first full season as a starting quarterback. Kaepernick threw for more than 3,000 yards and had 25 total touchdowns to eight interceptions. He did do a good job of taking care of the football and not turning it over much but his passing numbers were mediocre many weeks. He has fewer than 200-passing yards 10 of 16 games. He did run for more than 500 yards, though, making a lot of big plays with his leagues. Kaepernick has a great arm and is a pretty accurate passer. He also 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 wasn't quite as decisive in the pocket last season. He makes most of his plays outside of the pocket - throwing on the run or running with the football.
Hot Kaepernick was a bit of a bust last season. He can improve on that, especially with a healthy receiving corps at this disposal, 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 30 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.'

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick isn't being put on the trade block, according to general manager Trent Baalke. Baalke was shooting down a rumor that said the Niners were interested in trading Kaepernick. The report listed the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears among the suitors. 'Colin is our quarterback and we are excited to have him,' Baalke said. 'He is not going anywhere. The media reports suggesting otherwise are without merit and, quite frankly, ridiculous.'

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and the team are expected to return to more of a read-option offense in 2015 under head coach Jim Tomsula in order to take advantage of Kaepernick's running ability. There was a sense in the front offense that SF's offense had become too clunky with too many moving parts. The Niners' new offense will be intended to be simpler and get to the line of scrimmage quickly to put pressure on the defense.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has enlisted the help of former QB Kurt Warner this offseason in order to help him develop as a pocket passer. "He's gotten by on athleticism, and he's made some great plays and had some great games. But I think the goal is in the time that I'm going to have with him is just to see where he's at and what he knows about the position and how far we can push the envelope as far as helping him develop as a pocket passer,' Warner said. Kaepernick ranked 20th in the league with a career-low 86.4 passer rating this season.
