After posting 36 Fantasy points in Week 1,
The matchup indicates Kaepernick might be a trustworthy option. Up until EJ Manuel's disaster of a performance last week, quarterbacks were thriving against Tampa Bay. In fact, quarterbacks totaled at least two passing touchdowns in eight straight games before Manuel recorded no touchdowns Week 14.
Quarterbacks are averaging 20.7 Fantasy points per week against Tampa Bay. One of the big potential pitfalls, however, is that quarterbacks have thrown 21 interceptions against Tampa Bay, including 15 in the last six games.
Kaepernick has thrown multiple interceptions just once this season, so he might be saved from the turnover machine the Bucs defense has been in recent weeks. However, it's still a gamble to start Kaepernick outside of two-quarterback leagues because he just hasn't been reliable for Fantasy owners this season.
Kaepernick hooked up with Vernon Davis for an 8-yard touchdown pass with 10 second remaining in the opening half. He was also intercepted by Byron Maxwell in the third quarter.
Kaepernick completed 15 of 29 passes for 175 passing yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He finished with a 67.5 passer rating and also added 31 yards on nine carries in a 19-17 victory
Kaepernick has four interceptions against the Seahawks in two games and four interceptions against the rest of the league in 11 games this season. He'll look to get back on track in Week 15 against the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay.
Kaepernick is fresh off a 275-yard, one touchdown performance in Week 13 at home against the Rams. However, the third-year pro out of Nevada has struggled in his two career meetings against the Seahawks. In Seattle last year, Kaepernick tossed for 244 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also completed 13 of 28 passes for 127 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions in a 29-3 Week 2 loss in Seattle this season.
Although Kaepernick has struggled against the Seahawks in the past, he has never faced them at home in his career. He is averaging 215.5 passing yards while totaling seven touchdowns and three interceptions at home. Seattle has the best pass defense in the league, allowing only 177.3 yards per game this season. Opposing quarterbacks have only scored 10.83 Fantasy points per game in CBSSports.com standard leagues.
Kaepernick has played well recently, but Fantasy owners should re-consider starting him this week. Our Fantasy experts have him ranked as high as 16th and as low as 22nd for Week 14. Consider other options with better matchups.
Kaepernick hooked up with Vernon Davis for a 17-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He completed 19 of 28 passes for 275 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in a 23-13 victory. He also rushed for 22 yards on three carries.
Kaepernick has four touchdown passes and no interceptions over his last two games. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 13 against the Seahawks at home. He threw for 127 yards and three interceptions in his previous meeting in Seattle in Week 2.
Kaepernick bounced back with his best performance since Week 8, as he completed 15 of 24 passes for 235 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions against the Redskins Week 12. He'll be facing a St. Louis defense that has allowed a combined 773 passing yards over the previous two weeks. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 17.09 points per game in CBSSports.com standard leagues this season against St. Louis.
Kaepernick's got the hot hand, and it'll be hard to keep him on your bench this week unless you have a better matchup. Our Fantasy experts have ranked him as high as ninth and as low as 11th this week.
