Notable Players- Trey Lance & Jimmy Garoppolo
While Garoppolo is on the roster, all of the signs are that it’s going to be Trey Lance that is going to be given the nod to play this season.
Lance is a fantastic dual-threat option, able to make plays with his feet and arm. Being drafted into this offense was a bit of a dream for fantasy. A running QB on one of the better running offenses? With the floor created with his feet, even if he were to struggle he will be in the QB1 conversation.
To cover off the Garoppolo situation quickly, it seems likely that he is going to be off the roster at some point in the season. Be that by trade, or being released and picked up. In a Superflex league I’d draft him at the end of my draft and see if I end up getting a starting QB.
