49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been raving about wide receiver Jalen Hurd, who missed all of 2019 and 2020 with separate injuries. "He’s come a long way, he really has, in his route-running, just developing his body and becoming a pro," Garoppolo explained to NBC Sports. "I mean, the guy, he does it the right way. I’m dying to get him out there right now. I really am." (NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact:

Hurd, who checks in at 6-foot-5 and 25 years old, ranks 135th among receivers in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings, making him an intriguing stash in deeper leagues. "He’s such a physical freak with the things he can do in his route running," added Garoppolo. "Hopefully he’ll get to put those on display [and] we’ll get him out there as soon as possible.”
