Major QB shakeup: 49ers trading 2018 2nd-round draft pick to New England for Patriots’ QB Jimmy Garoppolo, sources tell ESPN.
In two starts in 2016, Garoppolo completed 42-of-59 passes (71.2% completion) for 496 yards (8.40 yards per attempt) with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He was the most coveted backup quarterback in the league and he'll get his chance to start for a good offensive-minded coach in Kyle Shanahan. He's a must pickup in two-quarterback and superflex formats. His arrival is a boost for the entire offense, especially Pierre Garcon and George Kittle. It may take him a couple of weeks to get up to speed, but he should be in the starting lineup sooner rather than later.
