Tremendous upside, safe rushing floor, "f your favorite fantasy analyst has Trey Lance outside their top-8 QB rankings you should find a new favorite fantasy analyst" @Jlarkytweets

Every day that Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the 49ers' roster, it threatens Trey Lance's starting spot, but currently, I'm still projecting him to start 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.

The Trey Lance era has finally begin after reports surfaced that the 49ers have decided to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo... even if he remains on the roster.

Garoppolo's shoulder surgery is the only reason he hasn't been traded. Once he is deemed healthy, I'd presume he gets moved to a QB-needy team or to a roster that sustains an injury at the position.

Lance only started two games but showed off the rushing that excited fantasy managers during draft season. The 49ers' first-year signal-caller averaged 22.4 expected fantasy points and 60 rushing yards per game.

Got league-winning upside as a late-round quarterback.

This year's "boom or bust" young QB. We all know the value is there under Shanahan, especially now that he has a mobile QB.

This is a player that will be a rollercoasters with some very high point games and some very low point games. I don't like these players unless I'm in best ball formats.

Rumblings that Jimmy G may start ahead of him if not traded are terrifying. One of the most overrated early players in Best Ball

The 49ers are expected to install Lance as their starting quarterback in 2022. The No. 3 overall pick in last year's draft, Lance is a gifted athlete with a live arm and the speed to be an impact runner. He'll have no shortage of pass-catching weaponry with Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle. Experience is the missing ingredient, and most people are going to rank Lance too low simply because he doesn't have a track record. The upside here is intoxicating.

Lance feels like he will be the starter in 2022 and his running ability makes him a candidate to have a breakout 2022 fantasy season on one of the better offenses in the NFL.
