Fantasy Football Week 8: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

Having a tough time deciding on a few different players? Review this week's options or ask a question of our fantasy expert! Welcome to the 8th installment of Start ‘em and Sit ‘em.  I try and not call out obvious decisions or top 6 players at QB, top 15 at RB or WR and make this productive for possible decisions that each fantasy owner has to make each week. This is another small bye week as the relevant guys that are off are Eli Manning, Rueben Randle, Andre Williams, Odell Beckum, Larry Donnell, Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore, Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree.  Last week, we had an...

Visions of epic comeback spurred Harbaugh to stick with Kaepernick

Jim Harbaugh, known as Captain Comeback in his playing days, took the concept to another level Sunday night in Denver — at least in his own head. This comeback attempt was a lot to ask of Colin Kaepernick. (AP photo) The 49ers trailed 42-10 when they took possession at their own 13-yard-line with 11:22 left. Colin Kaepernick trotted onto the field, with a makeshift offensive line. It seemed curious to keep Kaepernick in the game at that point, given the risk of injury and the Broncos’ comfortable lead. As it turns out, Harbaugh thought the 49ers still had a chance. Yes, to win. “I was...

Hochman: 49ers Colin Kaepernick's birth mother in stands in Denver Sunday, awaits to see son

Colin Kaepernick's mother will be in the stands Sunday, watching Colin Kaepernick in her matching Colin Kaepernick jersey, alongside her other son, Colin Kaepernick's 10-year-old half brother.

Colin Kaepernick goes from Manning Passing Academy counselor to Manning’s ‘SNF’ counterpart

Rick Kaepernick vividly recalls dropping off his son at the Manning Passing Academy in 2010 at Nicholls State University, about an hour drive outside of New Orleans. “Good luck,” Rick told him. “Dad, luck doesn’t have anything to do with… Continue Reading →

Jim Harbaugh gets plenty of TV time, Colin Kaepernick not so much

Jim Harbaugh gets plenty of TV time, Colin Kaepernick not so much

In a SHOCKING study, it turns out San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is show frequently during game broadcasts. A Wall Street Journal study of television time for coaches and players broke down the numbers for coaches and quarterbacks. Over the last few days, an article has been bouncing around the Internet regarding the frequency with which NFL coaches and quarterbacks show up on a television broadcast while on the sideline. I've posted the graphic down below, but to sum it up for our purposes, Jim Harbaugh leads all coaches in per game appearances, while Colin Kaepernick ranks...

Broncos vs. 49ers: The 'next step' for Colin Kaepernick and four other things to know

We asked five questions with San Francsico 49ers expert David Fucillo of Niners Nation. What is the "next step" for Colin Kaepernick, how will the 49ers handle these injuries, and who will win Sunday? 1. What is the "next step" for Colin Kaepernick, or has he already taken it? I think the next step for Colin Kaepernick is finding consistency. He can make virtually any throw, and of course he has other-worldly athleticism, but a bit more consistency would allow him to get closer to whatever his ceiling might be. We see stretches where Kap is unstoppable, as we saw early against the...

Colin Kaepernick not fined for Beats by Dre with taped over logo

Colin Kaepernick avoided a second fine for wearing Beats by Dre thanks to a taped over logo. Either way, the Beats co-founder is happy with the whole situation. What do you know, Colin Kaepernick actually avoided a fine this week! According to Matt Barrows, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback wore his Beats by Dre headphones this past Monday, but had the little b logo taped over. Previously, Kap was fined $10,000 for wearing the headphones to his post-game interview session, with the logo showing. The league has a sponsorship deal with Bose, and players are not allowed to wear competing...

Eagles Pass Rush Comes Alive

The Eagles didn't have a sack in Week 2 or Week 3. That raised more than a few questions about whether the Eagles could get pressure on the passer and play good defense. Those questions have been answered over the last 3 weeks. Colin Kaepernick is the most dynamic running quarterback in the NFL. I didn't know how Bill Davis would scheme against him. If you blitz Kaepernick, he can burn you. But there is also a lot of danger in sitting back and being conservative, not to mention players hate that strategy. They always want to attack. Davis attacked Kaepernick. Over and over. The...

What would happen if we swapped Colin Kaepernick for Peyton Manning?

What would happen if we swapped Colin Kaepernick for Peyton Manning?

Marshall Faulk is back with his latest GMC question, and this time he has a specific one for our site and Mile High Report. This game marks the second matchup in three weeks that features the QB vs. QB narrative. Two weeks ago, the San Francisco 49ers hosted the Kansas City Chiefs, which meant the return of Alex Smith. That week, Marshall asked us which skill 49ers would take from Alex Smith for Colin Kaepernick. This week, Marshall is asking us what would happen if we switched quarterbacks. Moving forward, would the 49ers remain a run-first team? Would the Broncos return to the Super...

Golden Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick's fine for "inappropriate language" halved instead of eliminated... for some reason

Thursday, October 16, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Good morning everyone. Year after year, I continue to lose respect for the NFL as an institution. Their handling of just about everything following the last Superbowl has been awful. This next issue falls under the category of pettiness and incompetence more than anything sinister, but it is still annoying. So we all remember that Colin Kaepernick was fined $11,000 for "inappropriate language" a few weeks ago correct? Well he won his appeal yesterday. The NFL even came out and...
