The 49ers have agreed to a contract extension with QB Jimmy Garoppolo. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports it's worth $137.5 million, a record high for per-year salary. We'll let the Niners worry about whether the financials make sense. The extension is obviously good news for San Francisco skill players, and Garoppolo performed well for fantasy owners over 5 starts last year with shaky surrounding talent. He looks like a potential QB1 in his 1st full season as a fantasy starter ... but Garoppolo's high-profile finish to 2017 also makes him an excellent candidate to be overdrafted come summertime.

The 49ers confirmed Monday that QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start Sunday at Houston, according to ESPN. He enjoyed a solid debut at Chicago in Week 13, completing 26 of 37 passes (70.3%) for 293 yards with 0 TDs and an INT. The Texans matchup puts Garoppolo on the DFS radar for Week 14, but don't overrate him for season-long leagues.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan informed his QBs on Tuesday that Jimmy Garoppolo will start this weekend's game against the Bears. Garoppolo has been with the team for just about a month, so he figures to be working with a dumbed-down playbook. He'll also be facing a solid defense that's allowed just 6 passing scores in 6 home games this season. Garoppolo is no better than a low-end QB2 for Week 13. A solid showing on Sunday would make him more intriguing for a plus Week 14 matchup vs. Houston.

The 49ers have acquired QB Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots in exchange for a 2018 2nd-round pick. So a guy who once was considered a potential Tom Brady successor now becomes San Francisco's latest crack at finding a franchise QB. He's set to hit free agency this offseason, but we'd imagine that the 'Niners have a new contract lined up for him. Garoppolo has been consistently impressive in preseason action and completed 71.2% of his passes for 496 yards, 4 TDs and 0 INTs in 2 starts last season. He has a new offense to learn under HC Kyle Shanahan but figures to be under center for San Francisco within the next few weeks. Garoppolo projects as a significant upgrade for this offense the rest of the way. We wouldn't bother adding him to fantasy rosters now outside of leagues of 16+ teams or 2-QB leagues, though.

The Patriots will start QB Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday against the Bills, according to Kyle Minihane of WEEI radio. That's no surprise given the "questionable" tags on both Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) after both QBs practiced this week. It does put Garoppolo into play for DFS lineups in Week 4, though we'd expect another run-heavy offensive approach. This will be New England's last game before Tom Brady returns from suspension.

Injury Predictor

Heading into his 5th pro season, Garoppolo finally gets a shot to start. He lost time to a right shoulder sprain early in 2016 before Tom Brady returned from suspension and the 2017 trade made Garoppolo the Niners' savior. The O-line needs to improve, but the Niners signed C Weston Richburg and drafted OT Mike McGlinchey in Round 1 in hopes of doing just that.
