Trey Lance
21-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
San Francisco 49ers
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Lance was the answer to the biggest mystery of the draft — which QB the 49ers would select after trading three first-round picks and a third to move up to No. 3. Lance played only one game last season at North Dakota State, but in 2019 he led the Bison to the FCS title, throwing 28 TD passes and no interceptions. He also rushed for 1,100 yards (and that's with sack yardage deducted) and 14 TDs. That dual-threat ability combined with prototypical size (6-4, 228) and a cannon arm give Lance tremendous upside, both as a pro prospect and as a fantasy asset. Coach Kyle Shanahan said in May he views Jimmy Garoppolo as the starter. The rookie will get time to develop in a system to which he seems well suited — Lance is excellent off of play-action and throwing on the move, and is accurate both in the quick passing game and when challenging defenses downfield. Even if he isn't the Week 1 starter, Lance's time could come sooner than later, considering Garoppolo has missed 23 of 48 games the last three seasons. In that scenario, Lance's rushing ability would give him a decent floor while he works out the rough edges as an NFL passer. Read Past Outlooks

Throws TD on first pass

September 12, 2021
Lance completed his only pass attempt for a five-yard touchdown and rushed three times for two yards in Sunday's 41-33 win over the Lions.
ANALYSIS
Jimmy Garoppolo (314 yards and a touchdown) got the start as expected, and Lance also had a few plays drawn up for him as expected. The rookie couldn't get anything going on the ground, but his five-yard strike to Trent Sherfield on a zag route was right on target. Accuracy on short-to-medium throws is what Lance struggled with at times during the preseason, so this was a nice debut (albeit a brief one). The 49ers figure to continue getting the third overall pick into games in specific scenarios, but he won't have fantasy value so long as Garoppolo is starting and playing well. Even if the latter scenario continues to play out, it will be interesting to see if Lance will get more involved in certain packages as the season progresses.
