 It seems we won't know who the Patriots starting quarterback will be until weeks before the start of the season, but the expectation should be that Newton starts Week 1. He wasn't good in 2020 - there's no denying that, though it certainly didn't help that his top receiver was out for most of the season, and they were weak behind him on the depth chart. The Patriots beefed up their wide receiver/tight end depth chart by signing quite a few players, including Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor, and Hunter Henry. Knowing that Newton still flashed 500-plus yard rushing upside, he can be considered a solid streamer as long as he has the job, but if he plays like he did last year, his starting job will be short lived.
Kyle Yates

Right now, Lance's ADP is simply lying in wait and ready to catapult as soon as the preseason hits. Once fantasy managers see Lance on the field with this offense, we're going to see his ADP skyrocket. The one thing that could hold it back though is the uncertainty regarding how long Jimmy G will remain the starter in SF. The bye week is the most likely outcome for when we see Kyle Shanahan switch things over to Lance, but there's still a strong possibility that we see Lance on the field as early as Week 1. This will be one of the most fascinating situations to watch throughout training camp and the pre-season. Once Lance sees the field, he's going to be immediately on the redraft radar with his rushing mobility and the receiving weapons he has at his disposal.One of my favorite streaming options at the QB position this year is Newton in New England. Did you know that before Newton contracted COVID-19 in Week 4 last year he was the QB7 in all of fantasy football? This was despite being put in a brand new system late in the off-season - which wasn't really a true off-season - and without any true receiving weapons. Jakobi Meyers was Newton's top receiving option in 2020 and that's not going to lead to productivity from any QB! It certainly was not pretty from Newton, but he still brought consistent fantasy viability with his rushing prowess. Newton saw 42 (!) Red Zone carries last year and scored 12 rushing touchdowns and this was all while battling the after effects of COVID. With a full off-season in this system, plus the revamped receiving corps around him, Newton's my favorite buy at the QB position based on his price tag. There's a possibility that he doesn't start the entire season, but when you're streaming the QB position, you don't need that guarantee. The upside is too much to pass up on with Newton and I'll be drafting him everywhere that I can this season.

Everything I've heard is Lance is at least one year away, maybe two. That was the perception anyway. Now I'm hearing the 49'ers thought Lance was the most pro ready in the draft. He could start much earlier than many pundits thought. Nick Mullens and CJ Beathard are gone. That leaves only Trey Lance and Josh Rosen as the backups. Lance isn't very accurate, but he's incredibly sharp, loves to study film, & read defenses. The comp scouts gave was Josh Allen. Lance is big and can run. That's valuable in fantasy. The 49'ers have plenty of weapons. If he gets a shot, he could make a huge impact.Cam hurt his hand in OTA's. Hopefully he's okay. Even if he is 1st round pick, QB Mac Jones, is breathing down his neck. The book on Jones is he's not the most gifted QB athletically, but he's very smart and will pick up the offense much quicker than the average rookie QB. If Cam can hold him off, for awhile at least, he has some new weapons in Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor, and Kendrick Bourne. And while they're talented, that's still a lot of moving pieces. I'd rather have more continuity.
Tim Petropoulos

Keep an eye on Trey Lance, when it is time for him to take over the 49ers offense, he will be a difference-maker in fantasy, The only question is when.After the throwing performance Cam put on last season, it's only a matter of time until Mac Jones gets his shot.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
Trey Lance may have sat out last season, but his 2019 college stats and his pro day screamed elite-level talent. I guess that the 49ers will pivot to Lance midway through the '21 season. His sitting out two straight seasons would be detrimental to his development. Lance has Steve McNair-like talent and is a bright student of the game. His film speaks for itself, and I have little concern about his level of competition. He threw 28 TDs with 0 TD's in '19 and rushed for 1,100 yards with 14 rushing TDs in 16 games. He's going to be a fantasy force. Be aggressive in dynasty formats (especially Superflex). In redraft Superflex leagues, he's a draft and stash QB3.

When he becomes the starter.... lookout. Huge Konami upside. If he is a Week 1 starter, he'd rank Top-15 for me.*UPDATE* Upside remains high & was endorsed as starter, but Mac Jones unlikely to ride pine all year. Weapons upgrade + full offseason could mean return to, or improvement on, early-season Cam that was Top-10.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
I'm going to assume he'll be starting games at least by October. Could be a great guy to draft with one of your last couple of picks.
