Jimmy G may have his team undefeated and well on his way to keeping that up in Week 7, but there is no reason for him to throw the ball 30+ times against Washington with the game script everyone expects. He isn't the worst start, but can't be recommended.

Washignton is 27th against fantasy quarterbacks, Garoppolo is a low-upside QB2 in a run-oriented offense.

Garoppolo hasn't been great, but he also hasn't had to do much, with the offense playing with leads. This week doesn't figure to be much different against Washington, which means he isn't much more than a bye week fill-in. However, he does have a fairly high floor.

Garoppolo has been a big reason for the 49ers' undefeated start to the season, but it hasn't translated into much fantasy success. He's thrown for just 1,163 yards and has a 7:5 TD-to-INT ratio. With the 49ers' strong defense, there's just not much need for Garoppolo to air it out much, making him an option in only two-quarterback leagues.
