2021 Rest of Season Rankings

Trey Lance Note

Lance posted strong results in just one half of football in Week 4. He scrambled on 23% of his dropbacks while hitting big plays in the passing game. If he winds up starting in Week 5 against the Cardinals then fantasy managers should start him as a low-end QB1.

Jimmy Garoppolo Note

Yes, the 49ers made a Super Bowl with Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers also just moved heaven and earth to get Trey Lance on their roster. Garoppolo has made just 25 starts for San Francisco over the last few years. He has a cumbersome contract and struggles to throw the ball downfield. He's also not the athlete Trey Lance is, and it would be shocking for Lance to sit an entire season under Jimmy G, effectively missing two straight seasons on the field (the other due to Lance sitting out 2020 during the pandemic). There's an outside chance Garoppolo plays in fewer games this season for the 49ers than Lance. He's simply not a good fantasy investment in the current environment surrounding him, and frankly, even when he's been on the field, he hasn't dazzled enough to get excited about.
