Garoppolo and the 49ers have an offense that is designed to attack opposing defenses on the ground, but Garoppolo has still shown he can be an above-average quarterback in the NFL.
Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo
The Miami Dolphins just faced the 49ers’ division rival Seattle Seahawks last week, and let MVP-candidate Russell Wilson throw for 360 yards and two touchdowns. Garoppolo is far from the caliber of quarterback of Russ, and the Seahawks seem to have made a purposeful effort to #LetRussCook.
It’s always a concern starting a player in his first week back from injury, but against the sixth-worst defense against opposing quarterbacks in 2020? There could be reason to be optimistic.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Garoppolo in deep leagues, but bench if you have other options.
