Kaepernick completed 11 of 19 passes for 141 yards. He was under constant pressure, taking six sacks during the contest. When Kaepernick was able to evade the rush, he managed to pull off some big plays. Kaepernick averaged 7.4 yards per attempt. Overall, though, he had a tough time breaking a strong Seattle defense. Over the past four games, the Seahawks have allowed just 27 points. Kaepernick was more effective in the run game, picking up 46 yards on nine carries.
He'll hope for more Week 16 against the Chargers.
Things have gone from bad to worse for
Kaepernick hasn't had multiple touchdowns in a game since Week 6 and has one touchdown pass to four interceptions in his last two games. And it's not like he's making up for it with a bunch of yards either. In three of the last four weeks, he has thrown for less than 200. He now trails Andy Dalton in year-to-date Fantasy production, which tells you everything you need to know about his value.
For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.
Kaepernick completed 18 of 33 passes for 174 yards and one score. He threw two interceptions, and was sacked five times during the contest. Kaepernick had a tough time getting the offense going, posting a 5.3 yards per completion. When he did complete passes, they were mostly of the short yardage variety. Kaepernick was able to pick up 26 rushing yards on three carries.
Kaepernick will look for more Week 15 against the Seahawks.
Since his 343-yard, three-touchdown game Week 6 at St. Louis,
He does have a nice matchup Week 14 at Oakland, though. The Raiders don't rank especially low against the pass, but they've allowed 22 touchdown passes, tied for seventh-most in the league, to just five interceptions.
And a big reason they don't rank lower against the pass is because teams don't need to pass all that much against them. They're 1-11, after all. They fall behind big, and usually early, allowing teams to run out the clock against them.
That's the main reason why you shouldn't expect a huge game from Kaepernick in Week 14, but in the process of building up a lead, he's a good bet to throw for more than 200 yards and perhaps even multiple scores. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank him just outside their top 12 quarterbacks for this week, making him less than a slam dunk, but you could certainly do worse at the position.
Kaepernick also took four sacks for 21 yards, giving him just 100 net yards of passing offense in the rough outing. He managed to piece together just one significant drive, taking the offense from his own 19-yard line to the Seahawks' 19-yard line before taking a sack on third down and settling for a field goal in the third quarter with the 49ers down 16-0. Kaepernick will look to get back on track in Week 14 against the Raiders.
