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

Returns to backup role
QBSan Francisco 49ers
January 9, 2022
Lance will return to a backup role Sunday at the Rams with Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) active for the contest, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
The 49ers are turning back to Garoppolo after he showed enough in practice this week to be able to play through his sprained right thumb. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported earlier Sunday that Garoppolo also would start and not yield many, if any, reps to Lance, indicating coach Kyle Shanahan will be relying on the veteran quarterback to deliver a much-needed victory. As a result, Lance seems to be in line for clipboard duty Sunday, as he was from Weeks 7-16.
