Jimmy Garoppolo is not the starting QB for the 49ers. You can safely ignore him in most fantasy dafts. Garoppolo is projected to earn 0.6 of his 11 fantasy points by rushing. He relies on his arm for his fantasy value, which isn't really problem considering he's a quarterback. With a projection of 0.7 interceptions compared to 1.0 passing touchdowns, he comes with some significant interceptino risk.

Projected to touch the ball 3.3 times per game (2.8 rushes and 0.6 receptions), it's a desperate situation if you're starting Jeff Wilson Jr. in fantasy. He has some competition on the 49ers' depth chart, where he trails both Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon.

Tyrion Davis-Price isn't a great value at his ADP of 189, with an ECR of 261. Mark Ingram II (ADP 192, ECR 192) or Boston Scott (ADP 268, ECR 194) might be a better value. With a projection of 2.6 touches per game (2.4 carries and 0.2 receptions), Davis-Price is not worth spending a draft pick on. He trails both Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon on the 49ers' depth chart. San Francisco has the 16th-best schedule for running backs.

Trey Sermon is worth drafting at his ADP of 243 as the consensus #208 overall player. With 1.7 projected rushes and 0.2 projected catches per games, Sermon isn't someone you need to draft.

Ranked as the #13 QB, Trey Lance is a fine quarterback if you want to save your early draft picks for other positions. Lance is projected to earn 77.4 of his 303 fantasy points by rushing. That level of involvement in the 49ers' running game adds significant fantasy value. With a projected toughdown-to-interception ratio of 1.8, Lance comes with some significant interceptino risk.
