Week 7
Garoppolo has been far from efficient this year, but playing in a torrential downpour was never a likely recipe for success for him. He wisely locked in on Deebo Samuel, who used a combination of his run-after-the-catch ability as well as his ability to find open spaces in the zones to get him to 100 yards on the day. Otherwise, the QB threw a pair of INTs. There easily could’ve been a couple more, but on each occasion, the defenders dropped the passes.

With the 49ers looking like a non-playoff team at this point, it would seem to be a matter of time until the team turns to Trey Lance, though that’s far from a guarantee. And once Lance is healthy, we could go back to seeing Lance take snaps (and TDs) in the red zone, which will be a big hit to Garoppolo’s weekly upside. He’ll likely be an option in 2-QB leagues, but with his potentially tenuous grip on the starting job, he doesn’t appear to be a stable option.
Week 2
Garoppolo turned in the league’s shortest average depth of target in Week 2, a mere 3.6 yards. That marked a downturn from his 7.5 in Week 1. Perhaps the Philly D-line factored in a bit, but the short passes were almost all scheme driven. And Garoppolo didn’t even execute that very well.

Most notably, he misfired on a number of throws beyond the short range. Garoppolo threw errantly toward an open Mohamed Sanu on 3rd down to kill the 2nd drive. He overthrew Brandon Aiyuk downfield on the ensuing possession. He flung 2 off-target passes in Trent Sherfield’s general direction early in the 2nd quarter. And Garoppolo seemed to feel the blitz more than it was actually affecting him on a bad sideline throw toward Deebo Samuel in the middle of the 3rd quarter.

Perhaps none of this matters all that much for Garoppolo’s fantasy outlook, as he’s not finding use in the large majority of leagues. But it looked like the kind of performance that just might expedite a switch to Trey Lance. Such a move will obviously remain totally up to Kyle Shanahan. And starting 2-0 probably won’t help the push to switch QBs. But if you’ve been holding Lance to this point, don’t give up now just because the rookie didn’t find the field in Week 2.
Week 1
With the 49ers winning big until a late Detroit comeback, Garoppolo only needed to attempt 25 passes. Mostly due to his connection with Deebo Samuel -- as almost half of his passes went to the WR -- Garoppolo surpassed the 300-yard mark. Although Samuel typically does much of his damage underneath, Garoppolo found him downfield on multiple occasions, including a 79-yard strike on a severely underthrown ball which Samuel was able to outmaneuver the defense to put the 49ers up by 28 points. Garoppolo also was hindered by Trey Lance coming in for 4 snaps, with one of those turning into a short TD pass that may have otherwise been Garoppolo’s.

With Lance already having cut into his production, Garoppolo will be difficult to trust in fantasy lineups. He can be pulled from a game at any time -- and that may be a bigger issue in the RZ. Another issue while Garoppolo’s starting is that the 49ers are quite content to use their excellent rushing attack, which will often keep pass attempts low, like this week, where he had to be extremely efficient to have a decent fantasy day.

Basic Stats Preseason Player 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.

After a non-committal press conference on Sunday, 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan named QB Jimmy Garoppolo his Week 8 starter on Monday. "We didn't go into that game thinking that Jimmy was one bad game away from losing his job or anything like that," Shanahan explained. "Jimmy didn't play as good as he could, which he knows that and I know that. I think there were some pretty hard circumstances for him -- for both quarterbacks, considering some of the weather. But I definitely thought he could play better." QB Trey Lance (knee) is expected to practice on Wednesday, so he'll presumably be available for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. But it'll be in a gadget role, not as the starter.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan was rather unenthusiastic when asked whether QB Jimmy Garoppolo will remain his starter in Week 8. “I would guess so," Shanahan said. "We had two QBs hurting this week. Jimmy was able to come back and play. We'll see if Trey [Lance] can next week, we're still not sure yet, but I got a lot of things to figure out.” Garoppolo mustered just 181 passing yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs in Sunday night's loss to the Colts -- although, in his defense, the game was played in messy weather. Regardless, expect to see Lance back under center for San Francisco at some point this season. We'll see when rookie is ready to return from his knee injury.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) is off the final injury report and will start Sunday night's game against the Colts. QB Trey Lance has been ruled out with his knee injury, so he won't vulture any snaps from Garoppolo.

49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) did not practice on Monday. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) was out there and looked good according to media members in attendance. At this point, bank on Garoppolo starting this weekend's game against the Colts. That'd be good news for WR Deebo Samuel.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that he expects QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) to be ready coming out of the Week 6 bye. “I mean, he’s doing good,” Shanahan said. “We’ll see when we get back [after the bye week]. I think he’ll be ready to go next week when we get back. That’s the plan. I know he’s doing a lot better now than he was last week.” Shanahan has consistently said that a healthy Garoppolo remains his starter. And, frankly, QB Trey Lance didn't play well enough in last week's loss to the Cardinals to change that.
