Fantasy winners, losers from Week 3 of the NFL preseason

• We saw the ups and downs of the Colin Kaepernick Experience on Sunday night. He was uneven on San Francisco's first two drives, missing on four of his first five pass attempts. On the Niners' third possession, however, he led an 11-play, 84-yard touchdown drive, capping it off with a five-yard touchdown pass to Quinton Patton on a third-and-4 play in which he rolled right and bought time before Patton came open. He went 5-of-7 for 68 yards on the drive, picking up first downs on four of those completions (including the touchdown). I'm lower on Kaepernick than most in the industry, but I acknowledge that when he's playing as he did in the third drive against the Vikings, he can carry fantasy teams.
