2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over four years in the NFL, Colin has a 27-20 record which has to account for something. Defenses started to figure him out over the last three years leading to a decline in yards per pass attempt (2012 - 8.6 > league high, 2013 - 7.8, 2014 - 6.9, and 2015 - 6.2). His completion rate (59.9 in his career and 59.0 in 2015) has stayed in a tight range over the last three seasons. At the same time, Kaepernick has seen a rise in his sack rate (2012 - 6.8, 2013 - 8.6, 2014 - 9.8, and 2015 - 10.3). Just looking at these baselines, a Fantasy owner has to wonder if his failure is due to decline in offensive personnel, a weaker offensive line, or regression in his ability. Colin remains a dual threat as he's average 6.0 yards per rush in his career with 11 rushing TDs in 57 games. Over the winter, he had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, a ligament in his right thumb, and arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Even if Kaepernick wins the starting job, his upside will be tied to the weak passing options at WR and TE.
