2018 Fantasy Outlook
Beathard was expected to be Kyle Shanahan's project quarterback of the future after he was taken in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. The 23-year-old didn't necessarily perform poorly when pressed into action in October - 1,430 yards on 55 percent passing in seven games - but his projection quickly changed to "backup" once the team acquired Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade from New England. The night-and-day difference in San Francisco's offense after Jimmy G took over indicates that there will be no QB controversy heading into the 2018 season. Read Past Outlooks

Gets starting nod for Thursday

Beathard will start Thursday's preseason game against the Chargers, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Jimmy Garoppolo will wear street clothes during the exhibition finale. Beathard is the clear-cut No. 2 QB in San Francisco, and he'll mostly play against and with depth players Thursday. The 23-year-old is still a project for the Niners after he played seven games last year, completing 55 percent of his passes for 1,430 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The 49ers used their top draft picks on improving a shaky defense, opting to go with a project quarterback in Beathard with their third-round pick. The senior out of Iowa didn't put up eye-popping numbers in the Big Ten last season (1,929 yards, 17 TD, 10 INT), but he was limited by a lack of receiving options (55.9 completion percentage compared to 73.5 adjusted completion percentage in 2016) and a porous offensive line (58 sacks in two years as starter). The 23-year-old's transition to the NFL will benefit from his accuracy on short and medium throws combined with his experience playing in a pro-style offense. The 49ers already announced that Beathard will not compete for the starting quarterback job this season, allowing the team to develop the young arm behind the scenes until he is deemed ready.
