49ers’ QBs were tested Friday for COVID-19, waiting for results

One of the 49ers players who was working out in Nashville tested positive for Coronavirus, per Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network. The entire group which includes all the 49ers quarterbacks were tested Friday morning, and are awaiting the results.

Fantasy Impact

It is unclear at this time who tested positive for COVID-19, but the entire group who worked out in Nashville was tested Friday morning. “I’m told the entire group, which included all the 49ers QBs and many other skilled players got tested this morning and are awaiting results,” said Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. An update should be provided once the test results are complete. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor this situation.

Jimmy Garoppolo: 49ers committed to Garoppolo moving forward

49ers general manager John Lynch told reporters the team is committed to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo moving forward. “We’re extremely proud of Jimmy and committed to Jimmy moving forward. He’s our guy,” Lynch said. “The room for growth has not come close to hitting the ceiling.”

Fantasy Impact

This isn't surprising after the team advanced to the Super Bowl, making huge strides in Jimmy G's first full season under center. Still, Garoppolo was more of a game manager for the team, who often relied on their running game and defense to win games. As such, Garoppolo currently carries more real value than fantasy, as he's listed as the QB21 in our early expert consensus rankings.

Jimmy Garoppolo throws two picks in Super Bowl 54

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 20-of-31 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions as the 49ers fell to the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54.

Fantasy Impact

The 49ers had a 20-10 lead before allowing 21 unanswered points to lose the game. Garoppolo wasn't asked to do much until San Francisco was trailing in the fourth quarter and he wasn't able to deliver. The 28-year-old showed plenty of flashes this season, particularly his comeback win over the Saints late in the regular season. With the 49ers' run game likely due for some natural regression it'll be on Garoppolo to take another step forward in 2020.

Jimmy Garoppolo attempts eight passes as 49ers head to Super Bowl

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 6-of-8 passes for 77 yards in the 49ers' 37-20 NFC Championship victory over the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

The 49ers once again imposed their will via the running game. Raheem Mostert compiled 220 rushing yards and scored four times. That didn't leave a lot of opportunity for Jimmy G and the passing game. Expect San Francisco to use a similar strategy against the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54.

Jimmy Garoppolo throws for 131 yards in Divisional Round

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 11-of-19 passes for 131 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the 49ers' 27-10 Divisional Round win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Garoppolo wasn't at his best but he didn't need to be. San Francisco's defense was easily able to dominate Minnesota's offense, which consistently gave the 49ers advantageous field position. The team will now play the winner of Seahawks/Packers in the NFC Championship next weekend.
