Kaepernick completed 17 of 22 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Seattle. He also rushed for 16 yards and fumbled twice, losing one, during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Kaepernick threaded the needle to tight end Garrett Celek for a nine-yard score late in the fourth quarter, bringing the 49ers' upset bid within a score. It was an either wise efficient yet unspectacular outing for Kaepernick, which can be said for much of his season. The dual threat set career marks in touchdown:interception ratio (4:1) and yards per carry (6.8), but managed to pilot just one win as a starter for an oft-anemic San Francisco team. With change at the top likely for the 49ers, Kaepernick will quite possibly be another coach's project to try to retool in 2017.

Kaepernick completed 28 of 38 passes for 266 yards, two touchdowns and a pick in Saturday's win over the Rams. He added 15 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion on the ground.

EDGE Analysis

After a relatively quiet game, Kaepernick exploded in the fourth quarter with a touchdown scamper, scoring pass and gutsy two-point dive in the game's closing minutes. It will go down as a season to forget for the 49ers, Saturday representing just the team's second win and first since Week 1's victory over the Rams. However, Kaepernick has had a quiet yet efficient return with a 14:4 touchdown:interception ratio on the season and four games of a quarterback rating over 90 in his last six outings. How he and head coach Chip Kelly wrap up the season against an uneven Seahawks team might go a long way in defining both their futures in San Francisco.

Kaepernick completed 20 of 33 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 41-13 loss at Atlanta. He also had two carries for 21 yards.

EDGE Analysis

In a common trend of many games this season, Kaepernick had a nice first half, tossing both of his touchdowns, but completed just 5 of 12 passes for 40 yards in the second half. He'll try to right the ship next week against the Rams.

Kaepernick completed 15 of 26 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Jets. He added 23 yards on three carries in the 23-17 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Kaep helped his team race out to a 14-point advantage in the firs quarter, but the offense sputtered thereafter and managed just three points the rest of the way as the Jets eventually came back to win in overtime. His miserable 5.1 yards per attempt hardly inspired confidence from the coaching staff, and Kaepernick's grasp on the starting job could be in peril heading into next week's matchup with the Falcons.

Kaepernick will start at quarterback in Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Kaepernick was pulled from last week's game against the Bears in favor of Blaine Gabbert after three ineffective quarters, but offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins announced Tuesday that the 49ers would go back to Kaepernick in Week 14. Kaepernick will look to get back on track against a Jets team that was lit up for 575 yards and six scores through the air over the last two weeks.

Kaepernick completed one of five passes for four yards, and rushed six times for 20 yards in three quarters before being pulled Sunday in Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Kaepernick mustered all of four passing yards while getting sacked five times for minus-25 yards through three quarters before being replaced by Blaine Gabbert. It would be nice to blame his struggles on the steady snowfall, but Bears quarterback Matt Barkley wasn't having too many problems carving up the 49ers defense with 10.7 yards per attempt in the same conditions. The weak-armed Gabbert offers even less upside under center, so expect Kaepernick back in there next week against the middling Jets secondary.

Kaepernick completed 29 of 46 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins. He also gained 113 yards on 10 rushes.

EDGE Analysis

This was 2012-quality Kap on Sunday, and he came just a couple of yards short of the goal line as time expired, narrowly missing the opportunity to send the game into overtime. Kaepernick turned it on in the fourth quarter in particular after the Niners fell behind 31-14 midway through the period, driving the team from their own 38 to the Dolphins' six-yard line in the final 1:44 of the game and converting a fourth down play in the process. The sixth-year pro's rushing total was his best of the season and also marked the first time he'd eclipsed the 100-yard mark on the ground since ripping through the Chargers for 151 yards in Week 16 of the 2014 campaign. He'll look to preserve the positive momentum he generated in defeat when he and the 49ers try to avert a franchise-record 11th consecutive loss in a Week 13 road tilt against the Bears.

Kaepernick completed 16 of 30 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Patriots. He also ran four times for 32 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Despite getting sacked five times in the first half, Kaepernck performed well, completing 8 of 9 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. He struggled in the second half, although he did manage to toss a 13-yard touchdown to Shaun Draughn with about two minutes left in the game. The elusive QB had to deal with extremely wet weather the entire contest, so things could have been worse. Next week, Kaepernick will face the Dolphins in Miami.

Kaepernick completed 17 of 30 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown, and added 55 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Kaepernick exceeded expectations against the stingy Cardinals pass defense, topping 200 passing yards for the second time in four starts. He also added his first rushing score of the season, making up for a lack of productivity by the rest of the 49ers ground game. The dual-threat quarterback has been trending up lately, but a lack of weapons to throw to continues to cap his upside.

Kaepernick completed 24 of 39 passes for a season-high 398 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 41-23 loss to the Saints. He also had five carries for 23 yards and lost a fumble at one point.

EDGE Analysis

Kaepernick had a monster first half, with nearly 300 passing yards and both of his touchdown passes, but struggled in the second half, leading the 49ers to just three points. He had a couple of big pass plays, finishing with an impressive 10.2 YPA, although a lot of the damage came on yardage after the catch. In any case, Sunday's performance was Kaepernick's best of the season. He'll have a much tougher test next week, however, against a stingy Cardinals' defense.
