Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 3 vs KC (20 / 30 / 251 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / 23 / 0 rush)
Garoppolo's out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, so it seems silly to nitpick his performance. This may sound obvious, but one thing to watch out for when he comes back in 2019 is his mobility -- inside the pocket. Over the past two games, against less than ferocious pass rushes, he's taken several sacks due to standing like a statue in the pocket. These were coverage sacks more so than blown blocks, but Garoppolo simply didn't move. With a reconstructed knee, he figures to move even less (if there's something less than not moving at all).
2018 Week 2 vs DET (18 / 26 / 206 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / 4 / 0 rush)
Two factors limited Garoppolo's fantasy scoring in this game. First, San Francisco's wide receivers weren't able to consistently defeat Detroit's man-to-man coverage, which they played on the vast majority of pass plays. This, not being overwhelmed by the pass rush, is why Garoppolo scrambled, was sacked, or threw the ball away on over one-quarter of his dropbacks (8 of 34). Second, every game seems to see one or two instances of throwing high and inside on quick, in-breaking routes across the middle of the field. Against Detroit, this mistake popping up turned a potential long catch-and-run by George Kittle into an incompletion. Of course, he hit that same type of throw on Garrett Celek's touchdown, so it's simply a detail in his game that he needs to clean up. Far more egregious was his errant pass to Matt Breida in the left flat on 3rd-and-2 late in the fourth quarter that would have given away the game via pick-six if not for getting saved by a defensive holding penalty far away from the play. That's a mistake he simply cannot make.
2018 Week 1 vs MIN (15 / 33 / 261 / 1 / 3 pass, 2 / 6 / 0 rush)
Garoppolo had a mixed performance. Not the kind of mixed performance that various 49ers quarterbacks have been described as in this space in previous years. It was higher variance, if you will. Garoppolo took shots when the situation warranted it and generally found his receivers to fail him. George Kittle dropped a wide-open, over-the-shoulder pass that would have at least gained 30 yards. Pierre Garcon dropped a touchdown pass. That said, he did benefit from a spectacular touchdown catch by Dante Pettis. And he also continued the trend from preseason wherein he threw high and inside to in-breaking receivers. Two of his three interceptions were of this variety, including Minnesota's pick-six to extend their lead to 17-3.
