San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed just 13 of 25 pass attempts for 160 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers . He did contribute 57 rushing yards on 10 carries.
Kaepernick failed to rebound, after last week's horrific four-interception game at Arizona, and with just a 2:5 TD:INT ratio in four games this season, he hasn't helped fantasy owners through the air, although he's run for a total of 195 yards and a touchdown. Next week, Kaepernick will try to get on track against the New York Giants .
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick received a vote of confidence Monday from coach Jim Tomsula following a four-interception outing Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals .
"I believe in Colin Kaepernick," Tomsula said, per ESPN.com. "And, I think he's got the tools to be a darn good quarterback in this football league, in this league."
Kaepernick has completed 64.8 percent of his passes (59 of 91) through three games. He has two passing touchdowns to four interceptions, while rushing for 138 yards and one touchdown on 23 attempts.
"I mean, yes, he's our starting quarterback," Tomsula said. "But, we're in a game of football. I mean, infinity and statements to that term at any position (are false), but I've had no thoughts of him not being our quarterback. He's our quarterback."
Kaepernick had two of his interceptions returned for a touchdown in the first six minutes of the game, and all of his picks seemed to be legitimate bad throws. He was facing a tough defense on the road, but that is obviously of little consolation to fantasy owners. He'll look to improve in Week 4, facing the Packers at home.
Kaepernick was able to put up a gaudy stat-line thanks to garbage-time production in a blowout loss, but it all counts the same as far as owners are concerned. The 49ers looked great in Week 1 and terrible in Week 2, so it's still unclear at this stage whether or not Kaepernick will see frequent garbage time opportunities this season.
Regardless of the 49ers' play as a team, Kaepernick's ability to do damage both on the ground and through the air should keep him fantasy-relevant at all times, although his generally shaky passing ability prevents him from being elite.
Kaepernick completed 17-of-26 passes for 165 yards. He also rushed for 41 yards on seven attempts and did not turn the ball over.
Kaepernick has not thrown a touchdown pass in three of his last six starts.
