2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan has said that there "is no open competition at QB." Jimmy Garoppolo is the starter as we head into the 2021 season. While this isn't great for fantasy football as far as the overall quarterback position goes, it does give us clarity as to how the team currently views the quarterback they invested heavily in back in 2018.

It's been a rocky road for Garoppolo thus far in his 49ers career. He's had stints where he's looked like one of the next great quarterbacks in the league, but he's mostly been average throughout his tenure despite the fact that he did lead his team to a Super Bowl. Some of the disappointment can be blamed on the fact that Garoppolo has been extraordinarily unlucky in the health department, including his shortened 2020 season in which he suffered an ankle sprain early on, only to have it flare up and become a season-ending injury after just six games. The ankle injury noticeably bothered him and he didn't perform well even in the games he did play, averaging just 183 passing yards per game with only seven total touchdowns in those six games, along with five interceptions.

As we look forward into 2021, Garoppolo is probably not worth drafting in single-QB leagues, but he might actually be undervalued right now in 2QB/SuperFlex formats. The 49ers offense has been pretty good throughout the Shanahan regime, even when they've had some pretty terrible quarterback play. Garoppolo might not be an elite quarterback, but he's also not completely worthless, yet he's being treated that way in a lot of drafts.

The 49ers offensive line continues to actually be among the best at protecting their quarterback, so those predicting another Garoppolo injury are doing so solely based on the injuries he's suffered before, very few of which have anything to do with one another. The "he's just injury prone" line has been largely disproven by experts, so don't disregard Garoppolo solely based on that.

Garoppolo has one of the league's best young trios of pass catchers with tight end George Kittle along with wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. He's never going to give you much in the running game, but he could turn out to be a reliable QB2 in fantasy as long as he's able to stay on the field.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jimmy Garoppolo nursing shoulder injury
HC expects him to practice Wednesday
By: Doug Orth | Tue Jan 18, 12:20 am

San Francisco
QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a "slight shoulder sprain" - his throwing shoulder - but should be able to practice Wednesday, Kyle Shanahan said. (Eric Branch on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Shanahan has been wrong or just plain deceptive when discussing his team's injuries a few times this season, so it wouldn't be surprising if Jimmy G struggles to get a full practice in this week and/or misses the Divisional Round game against the Packers. Either way, fantasy managers and DFS players probably aren't going to use him much anyway. If he sits, rookie Trey Lance would be thrust into the lineup and make for an interesting DFS punt - one with a huge ceiling and a low floor.


Injury Jimmy Garoppolo not expected to play
Trey Lance to start
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 1, 11:20 pm

San Francisco
49ers’ quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a torn UCL in his right thumb, is not expected to Play vs Texans, but 49ers are optimistic he will be able to return for the regular-season finale vs. the Rams, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Garoppolo missed practice all week so this news isn't much of a surprise. Trey Lance didn't look good throwing the ball in his only start this season (Week 5 at ARI) going 15-29 for 192 yards and 1 INT. His rushing ability gives him a QB1 ceiling against a weak Houston defense.


Injury Jimmy G remains sidelined Thursday
Dealing with thumb sprain; Trey Lance preparing to start
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 30, 9:25 pm

San Francisco
Day 4 of ThumbWatch saw Jimmy Garoppolo miss another practice, casting further doubt on if he’ll start in the 49ers’ home finale Sunday against the Houston Texans. Garoppolo is conditioning on his own, however, and by forgoing surgery, there remains a chance he plays, albeit with his thumb in a brace or heavily taped, as was the case Thursday. Running the show in practice all week has been rookie Trey Lance. (Bay Area News Group - Cam Inman)

FFToday's Take: The moment most fantasy managers expected to happen about two months ago appears to be on the verge of happening now. Lance has reportedly improved by leaps and bounds since his Week 5 start for an injured Garoppolo. There may be no better opponent for Lance to face in his second start than the Texans, and it would be ridiculous for the 49ers to play Garoppolo when it seems obvious he could struggle with his accuracy or make the injury even worse. If Lance gets the nod, he should be considered a low-end QB1 option.
