Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
If there was only one takeaway from the 49ers Week 6 win is that Garoppolo clearly tried to play injured the week before. We are comfortable throwing that game out the window and declaring it an outlier. He wasn't anything special in primetime against the Rams, but in this offense he doesn't have to be. That said, this is his first return to New England as a starter and our eyebrow is raised about what Bill Bellchik has in store for him and Kyle Shanahan. Don't get too cute with your starting alternatives, but hopefully you have better ones.
Passing: 223 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 3 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Starting 16 games in a regular season for the first time in his career didn't yield steady fantasy success for Garoppolo last season. The 49ers turned him loose on occasion - he racked up a 349-4-1 passing line against the Saints (Week 14) and cranked out 317-4-0 and 424-4-2 passing lines in two matchups against the Cardinals, respectively (Week 9 and Week 11) - but San Francisco also used Garoppolo as a game manager in a run-heavy attack every so often (he passed for 185 or fewer yards in five games). "Jimmy G." still finished an impressive fifth (tie) at the position in touchdown passes and 14th in the fantasy quarterback rankings, but Garoppolo also finished a soft 19th in attempts and 12th in passing yards. It's worth nothing that he averaged 277 passing yards and 2.0 touchdown tosses per game during the 49ers' last nine regular-season outings, so Garoppolo's game did improve. As Garoppolo heads into his age-28/29 campaign and second full season as a starter, however, expect another mix of hot and cold fantasy performances. Opposing teams should be better prepared for the 49ers' ground game, so maybe...just maybe...we could see more regular pass-heavy outings from Garoppolo. His supporting cast looks serviceable with the elite George Kittle, the promising Deebo Samuel (foot surgery), red-zone target Kendrick Bourne and rookie 25th overall selection Brandon Aiyuk. Consider Garoppolo as matchup play No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Passing: 2206 Yards, 18 TD, 8 INT.
Rushing: 29 Yards, 0 TD.
