QB Colin Kaepernick Covers ESPN Fantasy Magazine


It’s time to talk Fantasy Football again!!! I’ll give everyone a chance to stop hyperventilating and catch their breath… Okay now that we can all focus, ESPN has chosen the Niners 3rd year QB Colin Kaepernick to grace the cover of their annual Fantasy Football issue.

Kaepernick finished 27th in FF points amongst starting QBs last season, but his playoff run makes him a lock for the 1st round of most drafts.

Below are the top 10 QBs from 2012 for you Avid Fantasy fans:

  1. Drew Brees NO – 437 FFpts/27.3 FFppg
  2. Aaron Rodgers GB – 409 FFpts/25.6 FFppg
  3. Tom Brady NE – 404 FFpts/25.3 FFppg
  4. Cam Newton CAR – 391 FFpts/24.5 FFppg
  5. Matt Ryan ATL – 383 FFpts/24.0 FFppg
  6. Peyton Manning DEN – 382 FFpts/23.9 FFppg
  7. Tony Romo DAL – 368 FFpts/23 FFppg
  8. Andrew Luck IND – 366 FFpts/22.9 FFppg
  9. Robert Griffin III WAS – 365 FFpts/24.4 FFppg
  10. Matthew Stafford DET – 365 FFpts/22.8 FFppg

Kaepernick’s ability to run and throw could see him sneak into 2013’s top 10 and ESPN surely thinks he’ll be amongst the best in the NFL.
