Tremendous upside, safe rushing floor, "f your favorite fantasy analyst has Trey Lance outside their top-8 QB rankings you should find a new favorite fantasy analyst" @Jlarkytweets x x 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
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. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The Trey Lance era has finally begin after reports surfaced that the 49ers have decided to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo... even if he remains on the roster. Garoppolo's shoulder surgery is the only reason he hasn't been traded. Once he is deemed healthy, I'd presume he gets moved to a QB-needy team or to a roster that sustains an injury at the position. Lance only started two games but showed off the rushing that excited fantasy managers during draft season. The 49ers' first-year signal-caller averaged 22.4 expected fantasy points and 60 rushing yards per game. Got league-winning upside as a late-round quarterback.Deshaun Watson is a top-five option when he gets back on the field after his six-game suspension. He was exactly that from 2019-2020, and there is no reason to think the 26-year-old won't pick up where he left off. During his last season of play, Watson led the NFL in passing yards and yards per attempt (8.9). Considering some best ball leagues are won in November/December, not September, he's worth stashing if you opt to wait on the quarterback position.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Rumblings that Jimmy G may start ahead of him if not traded are terrifying. One of the most overrated early players in Best Ball8/3: Up-and-down we go. Now the NFL Appeals & will push for season-long suspension, most expect it to stick. I'm ranking as if Watson won't play in 2022 until told otherwise - wish is a huge downgrade for Cooper, Njoku, Chubb, Hunt, everyone. Avoid CLE. 8/1: The ruling is in: 6 games. As absurd as that is, it gives Watson a whole lot more draftability now & greatly raises the ceiling of all the main pass-catchers for the last 2/3rds of the season (Cooper, DPJ, Njoku), while boosting the upside of the run-game as a whole 7/19: Latest reports suggest the lengthiest suspension Watson could face is 8 games, with as low as 2 a possibility. He becomes a significantly more attractive late round piece & elevates all Browns with him
Nick Bretwisch

This year's "boom or bust" young QB. We all know the value is there under Shanahan, especially now that he has a mobile QB.Outside of the suspension, Watson is playing with the best O-Line in football once he returns.
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
This is a player that will be a rollercoasters with some very high point games and some very low point games. I don't like these players unless I'm in best ball formats.Watson's draft value will heavily depend on if the league hands down a suspension or not.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The 49ers are expected to install Lance as their starting quarterback in 2022. The No. 3 overall pick in last year's draft, Lance is a gifted athlete with a live arm and the speed to be an impact runner. He'll have no shortage of pass-catching weaponry with Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle. Experience is the missing ingredient, and most people are going to rank Lance too low simply because he doesn't have a track record. The upside here is intoxicating.We don't know what sort of discipline Watson might face after nearly two dozen civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior. What we do know is that in three full seasons as the Texans' starter, Watson finished QB4, QB5 and QB5 in fantasy scoring. The only QB who can match Watson's combination of passing and rushing ability is Josh Allen. Watson will now be helming a Browns offense that was run-heavy with Baker Mayfield at quarterback but should be more freewheeling in 2022. The change of scenery, a possible suspension and the accumulation of rust after a year off are all concerns, but Watson is still a difference-maker at the QB position.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lance feels like he will be the starter in 2022 and his running ability makes him a candidate to have a breakout 2022 fantasy season on one of the better offenses in the NFL.
