San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo finished 17-of-25 for 297 yards and three touchdowns to go along with one interception in Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals. He added four carries for eight yards.
Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo's attempts and completion percentage were similar to Week 1, but the overall results were much different. Perhaps the most impressive part of this performance was that he didn't have to rely too heavily on George Kittle (three targets). Garoppolo still can't be considered anything more than a QB2 for fantasy purposes at the moment, but this is a step in the right direction. He'll get another chance to prove himself in Week 3 at home against the winless Pittsburgh Steelers.
San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley (leg) suffered a fractured left fibula in the Week 2 win over the Bengals when running back Raheem Mostert ran into Staley's leg from behind. The offensive lineman said he's expected to be out six to eight weeks. It's a big and notable loss to San Francisco's offensive line, and it's bad news for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo moving forward, although he does have a good matchup in Week 3 against the struggling Steelers Defense. Garoppolo remains a midrange QB2.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 17 of 25 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 2s annihilation of the Cincinnati Bengals. Garoppolo found both receiver Marquise Goodwin wide open for a 38-yard score then watched running back Raheem Mostert take a 39-yard screen to the house in the first quarter, opening the rout. Garoppolo later connected with rookie receiver Deebo Samuel for a two-yard score to cap his afternoon. Its an encouraging bounce back for Garoppolo, who looked flustered in Week 1 returning from his first game since tearing his ACL. After the 41-17 blowout, Garoppolo leads the Niners towards their first home game in Week 3 against the reeling Pittsburgh Steelers. Jimmy G will again be a mid-tier QB2 in that contest.
San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley (leg) suffered a potentially serious leg injury in Week 2 against the Bengals and was carted off the field. This has the looks of an injury that could be a season-ender for Staley. It'd be a big loss to San Fran's offensive line and a downgrade moving forward for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's pass protection. We'll keep you updated on the exact nature of Staley's leg injury, but it didn't look good.
The San Francisco 49ers need quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to rebound in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Garoppolo looked very shaky in Week 1, playing his first regular season game since suffering a torn ACL last season. Garoppolo squares off against a surprisingly frisky Bengals Defense that recorded four sacks last weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. The sixth-year signal caller has historically struggled on the road, but a perfect weather forecast on Sunday appears ideal for a passing display from both teams. Until he shakes off the rust, Garoppolo slots as a middling QB2 and should be avoided by fantasy managers if possible.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo finished 18-of-27 for 166 yards and a touchdown to go along with an interception in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo did a fine job of connecting with George Kittle, but that was about the only good thing he did with any consistency. It's hard to condemn any player after one game, but he also didn't look quite right in the preseason either. Consider him a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals next week.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 18 of 27 passes for 166 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Garoppolo paid for a careless pass the Bucs returned for a touchdown but he was able to game-manage the team to victory. Until the 49ers Defense took over in the second half, Garoppolo looked very shaky and generally uncomfortable but he settled in and found Richie James Jr. for a 39-yard score in the third quarter. Jimmy Gs performance wont inspire many fantasy managers but it was his first full game returning from a torn ACL. Hell be a middling QB2 in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will make his first start this Sunday since Week 3 of last year. Returning from a torn ACL, Garoppolo endured a streaky preseason as he shook off the cobwebs. For the Niners to go anywhere this season, hell need to play like an all-pro. The team surrounded him with weapons this offseason and hell enjoy a tasty matchup in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs were a bottom-three pass defense in 2018 and with a total score projected around 50, Garoppolo should have every opportunity to get going. Despite settling in as a QB2 in fantasy drafts, Garoppolo has a shot to be a top-10 option in Tampa.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said that he likes to take chances in the preseason and training camp practices to test the offense and his own limits. "The more you try those things, you see who's going to make the play for you in a crucial situation. If you put it in a good spot for them to make a play, you expect them to make a play. They expect you to give them a chance to make play, so I think it works both ways. Them trusting me, me trusting them. ... [That] comes with reps," Garoppolo said. He tore his ACL in Week 3 of last season and has just eight starts in two years with the Niners. Garoppolo won't play in the preseason finale on Thursday and will go into Week 1 as an unappealing QB2 in fantasy, although there's certainly upside in the young signal-caller's arm if he can stay healthy.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) remains on track to play in Week 1 against the Buccaneers. "We really, knock on wood, haven't had any setbacks and been on schedule the whole time. ... Things are really coming together," Garoppolo said. The young QB tore his ACL last year and has looked very rusty in practices and the preseason, so fantasy owners likely aren't very enamored with him as a low-end QB2 option. However, he could be worth a look as a sleeper in the regular season matchup against a Tampa defense that regularly gave up plenty of points to opposing offenses in 2018.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 14 of 20 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown in Saturdays victory against the Kansas City Chiefs. Garoppolo bounced back in a big way after an ugly game last Monday, finding running back Matt Breida for a 20-yard score in the first quarter. In his second game back from a torn ACL, the performance should qualm some alarmists in the Niner and fantasy communities about Garoppolos competency as a starter. However, hes still just a factor in two-quarterback leagues or a backup in standard formats.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 14 of his 20 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 24.
Fantasy Spin: After a horrible preseason debut, Garoppolo looked sharp in his second appearance. The 49ers added a bunch of weapons this offseason, but Garoppolo is still an unproven commodity. Consider him a midrange QB2 with upside.
San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan expects quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to play the entire first half this Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Returning to his first game action since going down with a torn ACL in Week 3 of last season, Garoppolo struggled in 11 snaps last Monday, completing just one of six passes and throwing a pick. With some rust clearly imminent, Shanahan is targeting between 20 and 45 plays for the starting signal-caller as he prepares for the regular season. While theres no reason to panic in Niner land, it makes sense for Garoppolo to get meaningful reps coming off major knee surgery. Fantasy-wise, he will likely just be a factor in two quarterback leagues.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo hopefully will play around a half during the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo is coming off a disappointing preseason game but is still working his way back from a serious knee injury. Fantasy players probably should consider Garoppolo a No. 2 fantasy quarterback that can be a bye week replacement.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was awful in his first game action Monday night since tearing his ACL last year. He completed just one of his six attempts for zero yards and one interception for a QB rating of 0.0 against the Broncos and their strong defense. Neither the Niners nor Garoppolo are worried about his knee. They are just trying to get him and the offense into sync before the regular season, but Garoppolo has shown plenty of signs of rust in camp. Garoppolo and the SF offense could take a step forward in 2019, but he'll need to show more consistency before he's taken seriously in fantasy for anything more than a low-end QB2.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed one of his six pass attempts for zero yards and an interception in a 24-15 preseason win over the Denver Broncos Monday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Spin: Garoppolo saw his first game action since suffering a knee injury last September, and he looked more than a little rusty. It is also a reminder that the jury remains out on his potential as a starter. The 49ers upgraded their offensive personnel this offseason, but Garoppolo has just 10 starts under his belt. He should be drafted as a QB2 with upside.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) made his preseason debut Monday, Aug. 19 against the Denver Broncos. He completed just one of his six pass attempts for zero yards and an interception.
Fantasy Spin: Jimmy G had a rough practice earlier in the week, and he looked rusty in his first game action in nearly a year. He'll have a quick turnaround for the all-important third preseason game next weekend. He remains more of a low-end QB2 at this point for fantasy owners in leagues of 12 or more teams, but he has some upside if he can get back to his pre-injury form.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) took snaps against the Broncos in a joint practice on Friday for the first time since he tore the ACL in his left knee last September. He threw five straight interceptions in practice on Wednesday but was much better Friday, going 10-for-15 with one interception while moving the offense. Garoppolo will play in the second and third preseason games, but head coach Kyle Shanahan hasn't decided how much Garoppolo will play this Monday. San Fran's offense is improving, but Garoppolo still has a small sample size of NFL starts under his belt and shouldn't be trusted as anything more than a low-end QB2 with upside as he enters the 2019 season.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a terrible day on Wednesday at practice, throwing five consecutive interceptions at one point. "Sometimes its hard to make the right decisions when youre fired up and competitive," head coach Kyle Shanahan said. "Usually, you make a bad play, it makes your mind go a little sideways." It's just practice, but it's still a bit concerning. Garoppolo was hurt by a torn ACL last year and missed most of the season. He has a ton of upside in San Fran's improving offense, but he's also working with an inexperienced group of receivers. He'll be a QB2 target with upside for more this year.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) is expected to play in the team's second preseason game against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
