49ers Beat: Colin Kaepernick's read-option could return in Week 2

ESPN - [Full Article]

After cutting LaMichael James this week, the 49ers have just two tailbacks on the roster. Facing a Chicago Bears team that gave up 193 yards on the ground in its opener, you have to figure the Niners would stick to a ground attack in christening Levi's Stadium. So investing in Frank Gore seems smart. But the feeling in Santa Clara, California, is quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the read-option could make a big comeback against the Bears as well.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Bears do not have a good defense and Kaepernick is already our #5 QB this week, but if the 49ers use him in the running game extensively, he'll have upside from there.
