Colin Kaepernick: Week 11 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor November 13, 2013

If Kaepernick thought the Panthers were tough, wait until he faces a Saints team whose pass defense is just as fierce but gives up fewer yards through the air. The Saints are giving up an average of just 200 passing yards per game and have allowed just nine passing touchdowns, limiting opposing quarterbacks to a mere 75.5 passer rating.
In addition to the top-flight coverage, Kaepernick will be facing a pass rush just as strong. The Saints have 29 sacks on the year for a total of 195 yards lost and with the speed of their lineman and linebackers, Kaepernick will be hard-pressed to find running room as well. The match-ups get softer over the next couple of weeks, but for now Kaepernick is likely to struggle.
