49ers QB Trey Lance will undergo surgery on his injured ankle and his season is likely over.
Lance suffered the injury early against the Seahawks and the injury looked bad initially, especially after Lance was carted off the field. Now, he will undergo surgery and his season is likely over. It's a shame because he was finally getting his chance to show the 49ers were right in trading up for him and he was starting to feel his way through. Now, the 49ers go back to their old friend, Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo is a free agent after the season, so Lance should be the man again in 2023 and there shouldn't be any more quarterback controversy, but you never know with the NFL.
SF QB Trey Lance - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 vs. Seattle Seahawks
Trey Lance had a rough start to the season in horrible weather conditions in Chicago last week. He threw for 164 yards and an interception, completing just 46.4% of his passes. He did add 54 yards on 13 rushes, however, showing his ability to pad his passing stats with production running the ball.
The Seahawks came away with the win against Denver last week, but they still allowed Russell Wilson to throw for 340 yards and a touchdown. Lance should have no trouble exploiting Seattle as he returns home to the bay area. We have him ranked as a fringe QB1 option with upside, given his rushing potential. Start him.
