2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the biggest stories in the league heading into the 2018 season was the 49ers' acquisition and subsequent financial investment in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The team traded for him during the 2017 season and the entire offense was visibly and statistically much better under his leadership. Many fantasy experts predicted a breakout from Garoppolo in 2018, but a torn ACL near the end of the 49ers' Week 3 game against the Chiefs put an end to that before it ever really began.

The 49ers were just 1-2 when Garoppolo went out and things only got worse and they went on to win just four games on the season. It's worth noting that Garoppolo was not particularly effective as a fantasy quarterback in the games he did play, never reaching even 275 yards through the air with just five total touchdowns and three interceptions in his three starts. Not only that, but Garoppolo is notably one of the weakest contributors in the running game, having rushed just eight times for 33 yards in his three games. In fact, he tore his ACL on his only rush of 10 or more yards on the season.

Given the unexpected absence of Garoppolo, the 49ers passing offense wasn't actually all that bad, at least in terms of yards, in 2018. C.J. Beathard was given the first opportunity and he passed for an average of 250 yards per game while throwing eight touchdown passes in five games. Nick Mullens was up next, who averaged 285 passing yards per game, but he also threw 10 interceptions in only eight starts. Both passers took far too many sacks, but the overall yardage numbers really weren't that bad. In fact, both passers were better than Garoppolo on a per-game basis.

Still, Garoppolo's return to the lineup should be an upgrade across the board for the team. The 49ers invested in Garoppolo for a reason and it's obvious that Kyle Shanahan sees something in him. His skills are certainly better than Bearthard or Mullens', but it's still hard to completely buy into this offense given their relative lack of experienced weapons out wide.

The team's most experienced wide receiver is Marquise Goodwin, who has failed to reach even 500 receiving yards in all but one of his six NFL seasons. The other top wide receivers, Dante Pettis and rookie Deebo Samuel, have caught a combined three regular season passes from Garoppolo. They do have some of the best pass catching weapons in the league at tight end and running back, so look for the 49ers offense to take a step forward from where it was at in 2019, particularly in the way of efficiency. Garoppolo is a much more skilled passer than either Bearthard or Mullens and that should translate into fewer mistakes, which should in turn lead to fewer turnovers and more points for the San Francisco offense.

Garoppolo was one of the hottest names in fantasy heading into the 2019 and he's certainly cooled off this offseason as he's now being drafted outside the top-15 at the position. While his injury recovery is something to be a bit concerned about, that gigantic drop off in perceived fantasy value seems unjustified. If anything, the 49ers are more stacked offensively this season than they were heading into 2018, especially when you consider the breakout season that tight end George Kittle saw even without Garoppolo behind center. While his ADP of being a top-10 QB heading into 2018 was probably too high given his lack of rushing ceiling, Garoppolo does have the requisite skills and offensive system to make himself into a QB1 this season. Taking him as a high floor, low-risk QB2 to pair with a higher-risk QB1 like Kyler Murray or Jameis Winston seems like a wise option.
