Description: The 49ers offense could see major changes in 2015 according to the Sacramento Bee.
Insight: San Francisco is expected to return to the read-option. Colin Kaepernick had a career-high 639 rushing yards last season, but most of that came when Kaepernick was running for his life. This is good news for Kaepernick's fantasy value as he pretty much proved he can't be a conventional pocket passer. He threw for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and took 52 sacks.

Description: 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will work out with Kurt Warner in Phoenix this offseason according to The Sacramento Bee.
Insight: This is a smart move for Kaepernick, who is coming off his worse season as a pro. He threw for a career-high 3,369 yards but his touchdowns went down to 19 and his interceptions went up to 10. His yards per attempt also plummeted down to 7.0 and his sacks skyrocketed to 52. Kaepernick was also awful in the second half of games in 2014 as his passer rating was nearly 30 points lower in the third and fourth quarter of games. This should definitely help Kaepernick improve although the possibility of losing Michael Crabtree this offseason would be a setback.

Description: San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick didn't turn the ball over as he did against the Bears in Week 2, but still couldn't lead his team to a win.
Insight: Kaepernick threw for 245 yards and a score and rushed for 54 yards, so didn't kill fantasy owners. He was missing a big weapon in Vernon Davis, but Stevie Johnson played well as the 49ers played a lot of three-wide offense.

Insight: Two second-half interceptions were particularly damaging. At least he rushed for 66 yards, but even there he coughed up the football for a fourth turnover.

He's always been a good runner, averaging six yards per carry on 157 career rushes. With Kaepernick under center, San Francisco should once again be one of the top teams in the NFC.
