Bold Prediction: Trey Lance Will Finish as a Top-3 Quarterback

Trey Lance will finish the season as a top-three fantasy quarterback in his first season as a starter. The number one reason this could happen is due to Lance’s rushing ability. In any game he could run for 100 yards and a touchdown. On top of his rushing, Lance has a massive arm and great weapons to get points through the passing game, Lance is a true dual-threat QB, and he will have a Mahomes-esque breakout in his first season as a starter.”

Trey Lance 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

Every day that Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the 49ers’ roster, it threatens Trey Lance‘s starting spot, but currently, I’m still projecting him to start this season. In the brief two-game sample of Lance starting last year, we got a glimpse at the biggest factor for his fantasy ceiling: the rushing upside. In those two games, Lance averaged 12 carries and 60 yards on the ground as the QB20 and QB10 in weekly scoring. Even with Garoppolo at the helm, the 49ers were sixth in EPA per play and second in yards per play. Lance’s legs give him a top 12-15 fantasy quarterback floor with top-five upside should he light it up through the air.
