With Alex Smith becoming the player many thought he should have been, Colin Kaepernick wasn’t expected to get much playing time in San Francisco.
Well, unless became a concussion followed by a quarterback controversy.
Kaepernick has started two weeks in a row for the 8-2-1 San Francisco 49ers. He had one great start followed by another good one, allowing the QB dilemma to hold for another week.
On Sunday, the second-year player completed 16-of-25 passes for 231 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a 31-21 win over the New Orleans Saints. The week before, he completed 16-of-23 passes for 243 yards and two TDs in a 32-7 win over Chicago.
Kaepernick is a player collectors should watch.
With the way he’s played and Jim Harbaugh’s willingness to shake things up, his cards could jump in price.
Here’s a look at Kaepernick’s numbers in the Beckett database (To access a checklist or OPG of Kaepernick, click here).
