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 Trey Lance to start, George Kittle Doubtful
Jimmy Garoppolo ruled Out
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 8, 4:22 pm

San Francisco
#49ers coach Kyle Shanahan makes it official: Rookie QB Trey Lance will start Sunday at the Arizona Cardinals with Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) ruled out. George Kittle is doubtful. (Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Garoppolo will Week 5 with his calf injury while Kittle is out with a calf injury of his own. Nate Sudfeld will be Lance's backup. With Kittle out, the 49ers are going to lacking in the receiving department but are expected to have running back Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) back on the field. Lance's rushing ability makes him QB2 viable but he'll need some help from his supporting cast to hit a QB1 ceiling.


Injury Jimmy G could play in Week 5?
49ers QB pulled at half in Week 4 due to calf injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 4, 11:55 pm

San Francisco
Jimmy Garoppolo "has a chance" to play for #49ers Sunday at Arizona. Shanahan: "It wasn’t as bad as we thought it might have been. Today he’s in a lot of pain and still sore. Wednesday if it’s getter better, he has a good chance." (Bay Area News Group - Cam Inman)

FFToday's Take: In theory, if Garoppolo is dealing with a calf bruise, he has a chance to play in Week 5. If he has any kind of calf strain, however, he should be expected to be sidelined until after the 49ers return from their Week 6 bye. Trey Lance simultaneously showed his upside and youth in relief of Garoppolo, but it should be noted that he posted at least 20 fantasy points in most scoring setups despite a lack of recent reps with the starters and a game plan built for Garoppolo. If Garoppolo sits as he should against the Cardinals in Week 5, Lance's dual-threat ability will put him in the low-end QB1 conversation.


Injury Trey Lance expected to miss a week with "chip" in finger
49ers rookie QB probably not starting Week 1
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 31, 4:24 am

San Francisco
Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) via Twitter: "49ers’ QB Trey Lance has a small "chip" in his finger and is expected to miss about a week, per HC Kyle Shanahan." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners who banked on Lance being under center right away need a backup plan, though the extent of the injury -- or even what finger it is -- is unknown at this time. Jimmy Garoppolo appears to have staved off Lance for at least another week or two.
