San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance is meeting with quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello to exchange some playbook material Saturday, May 1.
Huddle Up: It's not a great development for QB Jimmy Garoppolo's chances of opening the season as the starter under center. This will be one of the more exciting QB competitions for the rest of the offseason and into the preseason. Garoppolo should be considered the slight favorite to start in Week 1 at this point.

San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance faces a steep NFL learning curve following a college career that featured 17 starts at an FCS program, but he said Thursday, April 29, that he's not overly concerned. 'I'm not really worried about it right away,' Lance said. 'I'm just focused on getting there, learning as much as I possibly can, getting to know Jimmy (Garoppolo) and the guys in the room and learning and getting to know him and becoming close with him and just learning as much as I can and at that point, obviously competing.'
Huddle Up: Jimmy G. likely will be around with the list of possible trade destinations dwindling in recent days, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to see the veteran QB open the year as the Niners' starter and perhaps start most of the first half of the season while the rookie soaks things in. But after costing three first-round picks and being selected third overall, Lance is going to play as soon as possible, and he'll bring instant QB2 upside to the field.

North Dakota State QB Trey Lance was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The 49ers have Jimmy Garoppolo on the roster, so Lance may not start this upcoming season. Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Lance will be the No. 1 or No. 2 quarterback for 49ers. He would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts.
