Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Garoppolo missed 10 games and parts of 3 others last year with a pair of ankle injuries.
  • A torn ACL cost him the final 13 games of the 2018 season.
  • Garoppolo has been solid when healthy for the 49ers, completing 67.5% of his passes and averaging 8.3 yards per attempt.
  • He finished 14th among QBs in fantasy points in 2019, the only 16-game season of his career.
  • Garoppolo remains on the 49ers’ roster as of mid-June but isn’t long for the starting job after the team selected QB Trey Lance with the 3rd pick of this year’s draft.
    • 14 QBs were selected with a top-5 pick between 2011 and 2020. 9 of them were named Week 1 starters, and 11 of them started at least 12 games as rookies.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Garoppolo might be able to fend off rookie QB Trey Lance for the Week 1 starting job. And the ‘Niners open with plus matchups vs. the Lions and Eagles. So Garoppolo could be a spot-start option in 2-QB leagues and DFS contests early on.

But that’s the best we can say for him. Expect Lance to take over sooner than later.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder, thumb) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. He stopped short afterward of guaranteeing that he'll start Saturday's game vs. the Packers, saying, "we'll feel it out throughout the week." We're expecting Garoppolo to be under center in Green Bay but will get another update on his status on Wednesday.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a "slight" sprain to his right (throwing) shoulder. The injury reportedly occurred in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He got in 3 limited practices this week and evidently threw well enough with that right thumb injury. Garoppolo is a risky fantasy bet today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that there's a "strong lean" toward the 49ers starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo in Sunday's game against the Rams. We'll certainly watch to confirm that, but fantasy managers who were hoping to start Trey Lance need to make alternate plans.
