Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) limited at OTAs

Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) has been limited at OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

"Jimmy G" is only participating in 7-on-7 drills right now as the team doesn't want defenders around his restructured ACL. Garoppolo is still expected to be a full-go for training camp, however. He'll enter 2019 as a back-end QB1.

Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) expected to be fully cleared for training camp

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says he expects Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) to be fully cleared for training camp.

Fantasy Impact

This would put him on track to play in Week 1. Garoppolo is also expected to participate in the upcoming OTAs, though he'll likely only be cleared for 7-on-7 drills. The 27-year-old tore his ACL in Week 3 last season and is more of a high-end QB2 in fantasy right now.

Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) could be ready to throw by OTAs

49ers coach Kyle Shannahan says he's hopeful Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) is ready to throw by OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

The 27-year-old is already throwing on the side, which makes it reasonable to expect him to be ready for OTAs. Garoppolo should tentatively be expected to return for Week 1, but the 49ers won't rush him.

Jimmy Garoppolo tears ACL, done for season

Jimmy Garoppolo's MRI results are back, and as the 49ers feared, show an ACL tear. Garoppolo suffered the non-contact injury during a run against the Chiefs. Garoppolo will miss the rest of the 2018 season.

Fantasy Impact

Garoppolo should be fully healthy entering 2019, so there shouldn't be any concern long-term for Jimmy G. However, he will be done for all of 2018, which not only tanks his fantasy value, but that of all 49ers offensive players. The 49ers will now be led by C.J. Beathard, who was unimpressive in limited action in his rookie season last year. Expect the 49ers to struggle to move the ball, which will present fewer scoring opportunities, thus hurting RBs, WRs, and TEs alike. Bump everyone else down with the exception of perhaps George Kittle, who played his college ball at the University of Iowa with Beathard, and showed a bit of a connection last season.

Jimmy Garoppolo may have suffered torn ACL

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the 49ers are concerned that QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) has suffered a torn ACL.

Fantasy Impact

Per head coach Kyle Shanahan, the 49ers are fearing that Garoppolo has suffered a season-ending ACL injury during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Garoppolo will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm. If Garoppolo is indeed out for the year, C.J. Beathard would assume the 49ers' QB1 spot moving forward. This could be a devasting and perhaps, a season-derailing loss for the 49ers, who had already lost Jerick McKinnon to a torn ACL in the preseason.
