Fantasy Football Player Notes

2022 Draft Rankings

Trey Lance Note

Even with Jimmy Garoppolo remaining on the team in a backup role, Trey Lance should be considered the team's starter barring a full faceplant this season. In the brief two-game sample of Lance starting last year, we got a glimpse at the biggest factor for his fantasy ceiling: the rushing upside. In those two games, Lance averaged 12 carries and 60 yards on the ground as the QB20 and QB10 in weekly scoring. Even with Garoppolo at the helm, the 49ers were sixth in EPA per play and second in yards per play. Lance's legs give him a top 12-15 fantasy quarterback floor with top-five upside should he light it up through the air.

Jimmy Garoppolo Note

Jimmy Garoppolo is a middling backup to Trey Lance these days. Last year he was QB15 in fantasy points per game with a stacked skill player cupboard around him. Without any rushing upside to speak of and a pop gun arm Garoppolo's weekly upside is vanilla at best. He's a better NFL quarterback than a fantasy option. Garoppolo ranked first in pressured completion rate and second in play-action completion rate last year.
