49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said in the post-game press conference that the team "fears" a torn ACL for Jimmy Garoppolo. That'd be a season-ending injury for the $137 million QB. Garoppolo will undergo additional tests to confirm the initial diagnosis, and we should get another update tomorrow. The downgrade to backup QB C.J. Beathard is obviously significant, so this is a big blow to all of San Francisco's skill-position guys.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will start Sunday night’s game against the Rams, HC Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. Garoppolo reportedly had a good week of practice after his disastrous half vs. the Dolphins. Make Garoppolo earn his way back into your fantasy lineup after that dud.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said he pulled QB Jimmy Garoppolo from this past week's game against Miami because his injured ankle was impacting his play. Shanny wouldn't say whether Garoppolo will be able to start this weekend's game vs. the Rams. "We'll see how he is on Wednesday," Shanahan said. "I expect him to be at least the same, if not better. So, hopefully we can get a week of that and have no setbacks (on) Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And hopefully we get him out there Sunday night." We'll track Garoppolo's status, but plan on avoiding the 49ers QB situation in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against Miami. He was horrible in the first 30 minutes, completing just 7 of 17 passes for 77 yards and 2 INTs. QB C.J. Beathard replaced Garoppolo. We're assuming the 'Niners will go back to Garoppolo next week, but we'll see what HC Kyle Shanahan says.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Garoppolo is a significant upgrade for San Francisco's pass-catchers and is a high-upside QB2 in this matchup. The 'Niners are implied for 29.25 points -- 6th highest on the week.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo put in a limited practice on Wednesday, his 1st since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 2. It gives him a chance to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. We'll see how Garoppolo trends over the next couple of days.
