Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

It didn't take long to realize why Bill Belichick was so displeased when Garoppolo was shipped west mid-season, as the fourth year quarterback took over as the starter San Francisco in Week 13 and averaged nearly 310 passing yards per game over five starts, with 8 (7 passing and 1 rushing) total touchdowns to 6 turnovers (5 interceptions and a fumble). Far more importantly, Garoppolo seemed an ideal fit for Kyle Shanahan's offense, directing a 49ers squad that had started the season 1-10 to 5 straight wins from the time he took over as the starter to close out the season. Even more impressive was that he did it with a skeleton crew offense that had already lost number one wideout Pierre Garcon for the season. Garoppolo isn't going to wow anyone with his arm, but he's highly accurate and confident throwing underneath and intermediate routes so expect him to find success in the San Francisco offense as an efficient volume passer.

2018 Season Outlook

We need to be careful about the way we interpret Garoppolo's success from last season's limited sample size. There's quite a bit to like about the way he played after taking over as the starter, but a lot of that has to do with his impact on the 49ers as a team, not from a fantasy perspective. His numbers were solid, but far from gawdy, and projecting him to finish inside the top ten fantasy quarterbacks on the seasons is probably ambitious.
