Kaepernick put together another pedestrian Fantasy performance in Week 12, as he finished with 15 points in the win over Washington. He has just 15 or fewer points in each of the team's last five games, and that has coincided, expectedly, with a dip hin his production as a rusher.
Through his first six games, Kaepernick was averaging 40.3 rushing yards and 21 Fantasy points per game, numbers that have tumbled to 18.8 and 14.2, respectively over the last five. He has a tough matchup on the way in Week 13, against a Seahawks defense that limited him to just 19 combined Fantasy points last season, so look for other options.
His only touchdown occurred on the team’s first possession when he connected with Anquan Boldin for a 30-yard touchdown pass. Kaepernick‘s lone mistake was a third quarter interception which snapped his streak of 129 pass attempts without an interception. He also rushed for 14 yards on nine attempts.
The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.
Kaepernick completed 15 of 29 passes for 193 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 24 yards on eight carries. His lone touchdown came on a Michael Crabtree 48-yard catch-and-run with 11:38 left in the third quarter, which gave San Francisco a 16-7 lead.
Kaepernick has thrown just one touchdown pass in four straight games. However, he hasn't thrown an interception in three straight games and has just one interception in his last six games.
The 49ers are back in action Week 12 vs. Washington.
Kaepernick completed 14 of his 32 passes for 210 yards in the win. He also had 24 rushing yards on four attempts and lost a fumble.
While Kaepernick did not have a big day, his lack of interceptions helped the 49ers rely on its running game and defense to defeat the Saints.
In Week 11, the 49ers play at the New York Giants.
The Saints have had some trouble with quarterbacks this season, especially those who can run. They have given up rushing touchdowns in consecutive games heading into Sunday's matchup, and Cam Newton picked up 8 of his 12 Fantasy points against the Saints on the ground last week.
The Saints have allowed at least 19 Fantasy points to their opposing quarterback in four of the last five games, and are allowing the 11th-most overall. If Kaepernick is to get going, he's got a good chance to make it happen this week. Consider him a solid Fantasy option in Week 10.
