San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain during the Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo may miss multiple weeks because of the injury, so fantasy players should monitor his progress. Nick Mullens is in line to take over the starting job but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 2 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will find out more about Garoppolo's status in the next day or two. Nick Mullens probably would take over the starting job if Garoppolo misses any time but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo went 19-of-33 for 259 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. He added one rush for nine yards.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo deserves some credit since San Francisco began the game without injured starting receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk and lost George Kittle for a spell with a knee scare. However, Garoppolo didn't exactly rewrite the book on quarterbacking in this one when he had his opportunities to exploit the defense. The next two weeks should be more telling, however, as he should start getting some of his weapons back against weak secondaries in the New York Jets and New York Giants.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been more decisive in training camp this summer and shown a quickness mentally and physically that wasn't always there previously, according to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area.
'When I say decisive, I mean just decisive when that ball is in his hands and out on his back foot. When he hits his back foot in his drop it's a thing of beauty and you're seeing more and more of it throughout camp,' 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is no longer wearing a knee brace in practice this year.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo had previously said his knee is back to 100 percent following his 2018 injury, and shedding the brace is further confirmation. A more mobile Garoppolo could lead to a few more big plays, but he should probably still be viewed as more of a high-end QB2 than a every-week fantasy starter.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo provided an update on his knee Tuesday, Aug. 4, saying the difference has been night-and-day from last season and 'it's able to do whatever it needs to do.'
Huddle Up: Garoppolo didn't seem to be hindered too severely while guiding the Niners to the Super Bowl, and he has never provided much in terms of fantasy contributions via rushing yards. Perhaps an improved ability to scramble would help him cut back on last season's 13 interceptions. He should be viewed as a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo owned the second-lowest air yards percentage (47.0) over the last two seasons (2018-19), according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: That's troublesome for a quarterback who isn't throwing much to begin with as Jimmy G. ranked 19th in pass attempts in 2019. Keep him valued in the mid-QB2 range.
