Summary

Entering his fifth NFL season, Garoppolo remains a generally unproven prospect. He was solid in spot starts with the Patriots, handling mostly underneath routes and completing 71% of his 2016 passes. And he looked like a great fit in Kyle Shanahan's system over his 5 49ers starts, posting a 67% mark while averaging 308.4 yards a game. Questions still exist regarding his ultimate arm strength and ability to take shots downfield - over those 5 starts, he attempted just 19 passes beyond 20+ yards, the 36th-highest rate in the league. But if last year is any indicator, he'll be able to make hay as an underneath technician, utilizing his short-to-intermediate targets with stout efficiency. The real 2018 fantasy draw will likely be the volume at play: no team dropped back for more passes last year (650) than Shanahan's 49ers, though it must be noted that number dipped noticeably once Garoppolo stepped in and the team began to win. It's still safe to expect him to finish top-10 in attempts and post solid efficiency marks, especially in terms of completion rate. But with middling arm talent and an unproven supporting cast, Garoppolo doesn't seem to fit among the first eight quarterbacks off the board. He's a high-end QB2 target with low-QB1 upside. (May 22)
