Summary

Colin Kaepernick was the 49ers' second-round pick in 2011. He didn't play much as a rookie, but he filled in when Alex Smith was injured midway through the 2012 season, and he played himself into the permanent starting role. Over the past two seasons, Kaepernick has led the 49ers to two NFC Championship appearances and one Super Bowl appearance. Kaepernick is an accurate passer with a good arm, but his fantasy production has been limited by the 49ers' run-heavy style of offense. Kaepernick himself is an excellent runner (941 rushing yards over the past two seasons), but he won't be a top-tier fantasy QB until the 49ers attempt closer to 500 passes (rather than the meager 417 they attempted last season). Expect him to be a worthwhile fantasy starter, but near the bottom of that range. (May 25)

Bengals | Want to sign Andy Dalton to Colin Kaepernick type deal (Tue Jul 22, 01:57 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton should be signed to a contract that mirrors the deal signed by San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, in the opinion of owner Mike Brown.

Our View: Earlier this year Kaepernick signed a seven-year $126 million contract which included $61 million guaranteed. He ranks 2nd in the NFL behind Aaron Rodgers in terms of annual average salary with a $21 million price tag. The Bengals are going to have to cough up a significant amount in order to keep Dalton around. He's entering the final year of his deal and has been incredibly productive in the regular season. Dalton's 0-3 postseason record is something he needs to change in the future.
