Colin Kaepernick's Updated 2013 Fantasy Outlook After Incredible Week 1
If fantasy owners were questioning whether or not gambling on Colin Kaepernick in drafts was a good idea, Kaepernick's performance in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers put those concerns to bed with a tremendous performance.
Kaepernick made himself a hot commodity after torching Green Bay for 444 total yards last year in the postseason before taking San Francisco to a Super Bowl.
Now the electrifying Kaepernick has embarrassed the Packers once more to the tune of 412 yards passing and three touchdowns on 27 completions. In a stark contrast to last postseason, Kaepernick did not even need to use his feet, rushing for just 22 yards on seven carries.

It does not matter how Kaepernick racks up the yards, it simply matters that he gets them for fantasy production. Now that he has shown he can torch defenses through the air with little help through tucking it and taking off, Kaepernick has catapulted himself into the conversation for top fantasy quarterback.
There's bounce-back potential with Kaepernick. If he's having a bad throwing game, he has already shown the ability to rack up ridiculous fantasy points on the ground. Now the inverse is true, making him the deadliest fantasy weapon of all.
Kaepernick is the type of player who can win fantasy championships on his own. The scary part is he has only played in 16 total games in two years, meaning this truly could just be the tip of the iceberg as far as Kaepernick's fantasy production goes.
