49ers may still start Colin Kaepernick this season

The San Francisco 49ers are looking at every option at quarterback, head coach Chip Kelly said.

What It Means:

Kelly might not have said it explicitly, but this seems to suggest the 49ers are making a quarterback change this week. Colin Kaepernick looked lost last season, but the 49ers might as well see what they have in him after watching Blaine Gabbert face plant for five weeks. It would not be surprising if Christian Ponder made starts this season as well.

Among the 29 quarterbacks with at least 100 drop backs this year, Gabbert's -0.07 Passing Net Expected Points per drop back ranks 28th. On 31 passing attempts in Week 5 alone, he earned -10.18 Net Expected Points, per numberFire Live.
