Colin Kaepernick: Week 10 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor November 6, 2013

While Kaepernick has led the 49ers to five straight victories and has re-discovered the running aspect to his game, the match-up with the Panthers here in Week 10 will be his toughest since his Week 2 loss to the Seahawks. The Panthers defense has allowed the fewest rushing yards in the league and allow an average of just 79.1 yards per game with just two rushing touchdowns all year. Their pass defense is equally strong as they allow just 221 passing yards per game and are holding opposing quarterbacks to just a 77.1 passer rating.
The 49ers passing game gets a boost this week with the return of Mario Manningham, so Kaepernick will try to use as many different weapons against the Panthers as possible. While he's been a solid fantasy play over these last five games, Kaepernick might not be your best choice this week, so if you have a viable alternative, you may want to consider him.
