Brock Purdy

24-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
San Francisco 49ers
2024 Fantasy Outlook
A surgically repaired elbow had Purdy questionable entering last season, but he ultimately backed up his out-of-nowhere rookie campaign with another top-tier season, using the same formula that first led him to prominence -- intermediate throws that produce plenty of yards after the catch, combined with occasional precision strikes downfield. Purdy targeted receivers in the range of 10-19 yards on 27.9 percent of his attempts, second most in the league. His receivers’ work after the catch accounted for a league-high 29.8 percent of his yards on intermediate throws as he led the league with 1,615 YAC in that range. Just 8.3 percent of Purdy’s attempts went beyond 20 yards, but he completed a league-high 53.8 percent of those and had a 6:0 TD:INT ratio. All of that helped him lead the league in YPA at 9.6 -- the most since Kurt Warner in 2000 (9.9) and seventh most in NFL history -- while finishing fifth in passing yards (4,280) and third in TD passes (31). Supported by Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle and now first-round pick Ricky Pearsall, Purdy's yards after catch and big plays downfield should continue to pile up. The 24-year-old doesn’t run much, which limits his fantasy ceiling, but the combination of coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense and an arm that is stronger than perhaps perceived gives Purdy enough magic for another top-10 fantasy season.

Plays well in first Super Bowl outing

Purdy completed 23 of 38 pass attempts for 255 yards and a touchdown while adding three carries for 12 yards in Sunday's 25-22 overtime loss to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII.
ANALYSIS
Purdy was ready for the big moment and handled everything defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo could throw at him despite falling short in the overtime period. The rising star QB surrendered just one sack for a loss of four yards while his 89.3 rating was 10 rating points behind Patrick Mahomes (99.3), whose final touchdown drive for Kansas City earned him the game's Most Valuable Player award. Even with the heartbreaking finish, Purdy's 2023 regular season can only be described as a smashing success after he completed 69 percent of his passes for 4,280 yards and 31 touchdowns across 16 starts. San Francisco should still have multiple star playmakers surrounding the young quarterback next season as the team looks to get back to the big game in 2024.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
The last pick in the 2022 draft, Purdy’s remarkable run to relevance last season ended with an elbow injury in the NFC championship. Before that, though, he seemingly had proven enough to earn the starting job for this season. In the last six regular-season games (five starts), Purdy threw 13 TDs and three interceptions as the 49ers went 6-0. He was highly accurate (7th in on-target percentage), but that was partly because he didn’t stretch the field -- his average target depth was just 6.9 yards and a mere 5.3 percent of his attempts surpassed 20 yards, third lowest among QBs with at least 170 attempts. He benefited from the 49ers’ league-high 6.6 YAC average -- a number that won't necessarily regress given the 49ers' excellent collection of skill players and history of YAC-heavy offenses under Kyle Shanahan. If Purdy goes downfield more, all the better. Shanahan said in May that Purdy is expected to be ready for training camp after having UCL surgery in March. That seems optimistic, so it's possible Trey Lance or Sam Darnold ends up starting Week 1. In Lance's case, there's a chance he doesn't give the starting job back if he gets it, considering he was the third overall pick in 2021 and is actually a few months younger than Purdy.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Headed for massive 2025 extension
QBSan Francisco 49ers
April 1, 2024
Purdy could get a contract extension in 2025 that resets the quarterback market, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
"It's what the market is. Brock is going to ask for something that no one has ever asked for before," 49ers CEO Jed York said last week when asked about a contract extension for Purdy. The 24-year-old won't be eligible for an extension until next offseason, but given his age and impressive performance through his first two NFL seasons, he should at the very least join the $50 Million a Year Club, a group that currently includes only Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson.
