49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has torn ACL

Star Tribune - [Full Article]

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will need season-ending surgery on his injured left knee.

The 49ers said Monday that an MRI confirmed the team's fears that Garoppolo tore his ACL while making a cut late in a loss at Kansas City. The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo.

Now San Francisco must go through the season with C.J. Beathard at quarterback.

Fantasy Impact:

He could also have MCL damage, other reports say. The Niners struggled with Beathard last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. One bit of good news could be Carson Wentz's return from his ACL injury, which came in about 10 months. A similar time frame could potentially have Jimmy G. back late next summer. But for 2018, the rest of the offense takes a hit in the fantasy world.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Kansas City Chiefs

Jimmy Garoppolo led the 49ers to their first victory of the season last week over the Lions, but he didn’t turn in a great fantasy performance—206 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns was disappointing against a vulnerable Lions defense. Garoppolo should continue to improve in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, though, making him a solid rest-of-season option in most leagues.

This week, Garoppolo faces a Chiefs defense that has given up a staggering 876 yards and six passing touchdowns to opposing offenses through two games. That’s not a typo. While those numbers were accomplished by future Hall-of-Famers in Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers, it’s easy to see Garoppolo having success against a vulnerable defense. He’s a borderline QB1 this week and an excellent streaming option.
