Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now failed to score 14 fantasy points in three of his last four games, which is obviously not ideal. The matchup against the Patriots wasn't a bad one, but he failed to throw a touchdown while throwing two interceptions. One of the balls just sailed on him, while the other one was a deep ball he threw off his back foot. He bounced back well off his last two-interception game, so can he do it again? The Seahawks are one of just five teams who've allowed more fantasy points per game to quarterbacks than running backs. In fact, the 3.92-point gap they've allowed is the most in football. It may not sound like much, but when you hear that running backs have outscored quarterbacks by 16.52 points against the Panthers, it highlights the extreme. It's not just quarterbacks who score points against them, either. The Seahawks have allowed a league-high 118.0 fantasy points per game to the combination of quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. It is worth noting that 42.8 of the points the Seahawks have allowed to quarterback has been on the ground, which is something that takes away a bit of appeal from Garoppolo, who doesn't run. If we removed the 7.1 fantasy points per game they've allowed on the ground, the Seahawks would go from allowing the second-most fantasy points to allowing the 17th-most fantasy points to them. Still, it's worth noting that teams have thrown the ball 64.5 percent of the time against the Seahawks, which is the second-highest number in the league. Garoppolo shouldn't be under much pressure, either, as the Seahawks have generated a sack on just 3.04 percent of dropbacks, which is ranks fourth-worst in the NFL. The 49ers games have averaged just 124.6 plays per game (sixth-lowest in NFL) while the Seahawks have averaged a league-high 140.9 plays, so we could see more volume than normal out of Garoppolo. Five of the six quarterbacks they've played have thrown for at least 315 yards. Playing without Deebo Samuel isn't great, but this matchup should be good enough to net mid-to-high-end QB2 numbers.
