Fantasy Impact:

Shanahan added that he didn't go into Sunday's Week 7 game against the Colts thinking that Garoppolo was one bad game away from being benched. However, the 29-year-old likely needs to play better in a hurry in order to keep his job. Trey Lance has been sidelined recently by a knee injury, but the rookie could be healthy as soon as this weekend. Shanahan traded three first-round picks in order to draft Lance back in the spring. His time is coming eventually.
