LV QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. New England Patriots

Jimmy Garoppolo struggled in the win over the Packers on Monday night, throwing for 208 yards, a touchdown, and a pick. He’s been turnover prone this year, with a 6/7 TD/Int ratio through five games.

This week, Garoppolo has a tough matchup against his former team. The Patriots defense ranks 4th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. With two struggling offenses, this could be a low-scoring, disappointing affair for both passing games. If you can look elsewhere this week, keep Jimmy on the bench or on waivers.

LV QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Green Bay Packers

Jimmy Garoppolo missed last week in concussion protocol, but he’s on track to play in Week 5. He’s been uneven at best this year, with five touchdowns in three games to go with six interceptions and a fumble. Still, he’s averaging 236.3 passing yards per game and he has excellent weapons around him.

Garoppolo has a nice matchup this week against the Packers. Green Bay ranks 23rd in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. He’s not going to be a player to consider in leagues where you start one quarterback, but in SuperFlex or 2QB formats, he might be worth gambling on this week, assuming he gets through concussion protocol.

LV QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Los Angeles Chargers

Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 324 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a loss to the Steelers last week. However, he also threw three interceptions. He now has six interceptions on the year, compared to just five touchdown passes. To be fair, the Broncos, Bills, and Steelers aren’t the easiest teams to face to start a season on a new team, but the turnovers have to be concerning for Raiders fans.

This week, Garoppolo faces a Chargers defense that ranks 29th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. The Chargers have been involved in shootouts so far this season, and the Raiders haven’t shown any reluctance to let Garoppolo throw the ball when needed. As such, he could be a solid streaming option for needy fantasy managers. Watch his status, however, as he’s currently questionable in concussion protocol. Be ready with a backup option in case he’s a late scratch.

Update: Garoppolo will sit this week, so fire up your backup plan. Aidan O'Connell becomes a risky, but interesting option in a nice matchup. Best to steer clear of the Raiders' quarterback situation this week though.

LV QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 185 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions last week in a blowout loss to the Bills. With a lopsided score, you’d like to see more fantasy production from the passing game of the losing team, but the Raiders really struggled past the first quarter to get anything going.

This week, things won’t get any easier for Garoppolo against the fearsome Pittsburgh pass rush. The Steelers forced a pick-six and three fumbles against the Browns on Monday night and racked up a ridiculous six sacks. Sit Garoppolo this week in a tough matchup.

SF QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Miami Dolphins

Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 222 yards and a touchdown in an effective, but low-scoring victory over the Saints last week. He has the 49ers on a four-game win streak right now and has eight touchdowns - including one rushing - and zero interceptions in that span.

Garoppolo has solid streaming ability this week in a nice matchup. The Dolphins rank 27th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks, and they have a potent offense that should keep the 49ers throwing the ball to keep up. We have Garoppolo just outside QB1 territory, but he has upside.

SF QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. New Orleans Saints

Jimmy Garoppolo now has 15 touchdowns and four interceptions on the season, including eight and one since the 49ers acquired Christian McCaffrey four games ago. The offense has been humming, and Garoppolo crushed Arizona on Monday night to the tune of four touchdowns.

This week, Garoppolo faces a Saints defense that ranks 18th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Expect him to continue to be a quality streaming option, and we have him ranked as a fringe QB1 this week.

SF QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Arizona Cardinals

Jimmy Garoppolo had 240 yards passing last week, adding a rushing touchdown to his totals and turning in a quality fantasy day overall. Garoppolo has been a steady, albeit unspectacular option lately, and the 49ers offense has looked lively with Christian McCaffrey in the mix. Garoppolo also benefits from having a healthy group of pass catchers right now, something that’s been rare during his tenure in San Francisco.

This week, Garoppolo is a solid streaming option once again with a nice matchup against the Cardinals. Arizona ranks 26th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks and we expect fringe QB1 numbers from Garoppolo as a result. Start him as a streamer, especially if you have Kyler Murray and need some Monday night insurance.
