San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley (leg) is expected to return for the final year of his contract in 2020 after there was speculation that he would retire from the game after a Super Bowl run in 2019. The 13-year veteran missed nine games last season due to a broken leg, but he was solid as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's blind-side protector when he was on the field. Staley allowed just seven QB pressures in 240 pass-blocking snaps last year for a pressure rate of 2.9 percent, which trailed just Ronnie Stanley and Taylor Lewan among left tackles, according to Pro Football Focus. Staley's return would be great news for Jimmy G.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will remain the team's starting quarterback for the long-term, according to general manager John Lynch Tuesday, Feb. 25. 'We're extremely proud of Jimmy and committed to Jimmy moving forward. He's our guy,' Lynch said, per Jennifer Lee Chan of CSNBayArea.com. 'The room for growth has not come close to hitting the ceiling.'
Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo has drawn the ire of fans for his unimpressive passing numbers in the playoffs and in Super Bowl LIV. He was highly efficient in the 2019 regular season while completing 69.1 percent of his pass attempts for 3,978 yards and 27 touchdowns against 13 interceptions. His fantasy allure will remain capped as long as the Niners stay committed to a run-first attack and he'll enter 2020 drafts as a mid-tier QB2.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's 31 pass attempts of 20 or more yards in 2019 were tied for 29th in the league and were the fewest among quarterbacks who started all 16 games.
Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo had a handful of big performances last year, and 15 of his 27 touchdown passes came in four games. With the 49ers leaning heavily on the run, the big plays and big games are likely to remain sporadic for Garoppolo in 2020. Consider him a QB2.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is still a supporter of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo despite his dud in the Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs. Same as it was the day before the Super Bowl, Shanahan said of his support for Garoppolo. There's no difference. He was on his way close to a Super Bowl MVP and we all know we didn't ... make those plays at the end but we made those plays all year, our whole team, that's one of the reasons we were there. In Jimmy G's defense, 2019 was his first full season as a starter in the NFL after backing up Tom Brady in New England for three years and playing just nine games in his first two years in San Fran due to injuries. Garoppolo has potential for QB1 games, but he'll remain more of a QB2 for fantasy owners as long as the Niners continue to lean on their ground game and defense.
San Francisco 49ers QB JImmy Garoppolo will remain the team's starting quarterback, head coach Kyle Shanahan said in an interview released Thursday, Feb. 6.
Fantasy Spin: Despite the 49ers' 2019 success, Garoppolo had an up-and-down season and finished 15th overall among fantasy QBs. He'll remain a solid QB2 option in one of the league's top offenses.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 20 of 31 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Garoppolo played his standard role through most of the contest, facilitating running schemes and connecting with efficient completions when necessary. His touchdown pass came in the second quarter on a 15-yard strike to fullback Kyle Juszczyk. However, Jimmy G faltered down the stretch after the Niners fell behind.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo only has attempted 27 passes so far in two postseason games. If the 49ers throw 25 or fewer times in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, Feb. 2, they'll finish in the top five in terms of fewest pass attempts by a Super Bowl team in a single postseason. Each of the current five teams on the list played in 1974 or earlier, and each of them wound up winning the Super Bowl.
Fantasy Spin: Jimmy G. infamously has thrown for only 208 yards and one TD this postseason, and while the 49ers' running game does match up well with the Chiefs' less-than-stout run defense, count on the 49ers having to air it out more Sunday in order to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes and the explosive K.C. offense.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has the confidence of former 49ers QB and Hall of Famer Steve Young. 'When they've asked him to raise up and go win it, he did it,' Young said. 'Those are hard things to do. That just doesn't happen. When you see it in the NFL and someone is able to do it, you go, once you've done it, you can do it again. You can keep doing it.'
Fantasy Spin: Jimmy G wasn't a fantasy factor with his 11-of-19, 131-yards, one-TD, one-interception game in the divisional-round playoff win over the Vikings, but that's largely due to the Niners' overwhelming success on the ground (47 rushes-186 yards). When Garoppolo has been forced to pass, he's delivered the majority of the time, and his fantasy numbers Sunday likely will depend on how much the opposing Packers are able to get done against the San Fran defense.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is a reasonable DFS bet for Sundays NFC Championship matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Priced as the third-best quarterback, Jimmy G squares off against a strong Packers defensive line that ranked 12th-best in adjusted sack rate during the regular season. Garoppolo was not pressed into service in the Divisional Round blowout win, but will likely be tasked with a tougher test on Sunday. While the Niners have mostly ridden its dominant running game throughout the year, Garoppolo has answered the bell in multiple occasions with three four-touchdown games. With dangerous weapons surrounding him, Garoppolo shouldnt be ruled out in the biggest game of his career to-date.

Garoppolo started the game hot, finding wide receiver Kendrick Bourne for a three-yard touchdown to start the scoring. He wasnt needed much afterwards as the Niners dominated time of possession and amassed 186 rushing yards. Garoppolos pick came as halftime approached, but it proved trivial as the team dominated the Vikings in the second half. Possibly tasked with a tougher contest next week, Garoppolo should be a reasonably-priced QB option in DFS leagues in the NFC Championship.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is a contrarian DFS option in the Divisional Round against the Minnesota Vikings. Coming off a strong season with 27 touchdown passes, Garoppolo also battled consistency issues with 18 turnovers. In friendly home confines, hell face a surprise Vikings team that ranks seventh in pass DVOA. Garoppolos splits show he was relatively worse at home, with a 96.0 passer rating, and its probable the favored Niners will continue riding their dominant rushing attack. But even in a run-heavy offense, the Niners were the eight-best passing team during the regular season with multiple playmakers in star tight end George Kittle, rookie Deebo Samuel and veteran Emmanuel Sanders. Although his price suggests Garoppolo is a bottom-four option, the Niners have demonstrated the ability to be an explosive offense.
