Jimmy G was exceptional in his first five games with the 49ers, not knowing the playbook, but still passing for what would have been 4,900 yards if you pro-rated those games to a full season. Last year, however, he was only mortal (3,829 yards, 27 TDs, 16 INT pace) before his injury. Let's not pretend that recovering from a torn ACL is especially easy either. You can dream on him all you want, but there are a dozen and a half more reliable options.Gone are the days where Stafford will throw 650 and even 700 passes, so he won't be that top 5 fantasy QB, but there is plenty of reason to grab him as your second, or better yet, third QB in a SuperFlex league. He has two quality receivers and has no threat to lose his job. He has finished as a top 10 fantasy QB in three of the last four seasons after all.

Did you guys watch Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard produce half-decent fantasy numbers last year? Between them two, they posted 198.5 fantasy points over the 13 games that Garoppolo didn't play. Over the course of a full season, that would have amounted to the No. 16 quarterback. That was with Marquise Goodwin missing in action much of the time, with Pierre Garcon out for the year, and with Dante Pettis not getting on the field in a full-time role until the end of the season. Not only will Pettis be a full-time receiver, but the 49ers also drafted Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd inside the top three rounds. The running backs on the roster are all better pass-catchers than they are ball-carriers, which again favors Garoppolo.2018 was a year to forget for Stafford, as he posted the worst numbers since his rookie season. He'd been about as predictable as they come for eight years, posting QB1 numbers at least 37.5 percent of the time in every season (while hitting 50-plus percent twice), but hit just 12.5 percent of the time in 2018. Did the new coaching staff hurt him that much? He's been a better fantasy quarterback throughout his career than Ben Roethlisberger has been, though you wouldn't know it by their draft positions.
