BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 29% of Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has completed 69% of his passes since being traded to San Francisco from New England and that efficient passing puts him on the fantasy radar. Garoppolo has thrown for 1250 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions in his four games as the starter in San Francisco, leading the 49ers to a win in each game. He also added a rushing touchdown against the Jaguars on Sunday, where he had a career-best three touchdowns, and he has averaged 8.75 yards per attempt this season.

While four turnovers in four games is not good for the 26-year-old (he has also fumbled), his yards per attempt lead the NFL among all quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts. His 69% completion percentage is second-best and his 312 yards per game (since becoming the starter) also lead the NFL. This is a small sample size, but it is easy to say that his impact has been made since he got the opportunity to play in San Francisco.

As for scheduling, Garopollo and the Niners will face the Rams to close the 2017 season and Los Angeles allows the 24th-most points to quarterbacks. With the Rams' struggles against quarterbacks, and Garopollo's ridiculous numbers to open his 49ers' career, look for Garopollo to post strong numbers once again. He is right on the edge of a QB1 this week and can be trusted to play in all formats.
