San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is a potential option for the Cleveland Browns if the league ends up significantly increasing Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension, according to sources via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Huddle Up: This would be welcome news for the likes of Amari Cooper and Kareem Hunt. The production for both players is expected to take a big hit if Jacoby Brissett is forced to start for multiple games, much less half of the season or more. Given how much the NFL seems to want to set a new precedent for punishing off-field behavior like the kind Watson is being accused of, the odds of Jimmy G ending up in Cleveland are relatively good. He would be a decent fantasy QB2 option if a trade is consummated at some point this month.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has been cleared to practice without restrictions, per general manager John Lynch on Tuesday, Aug. 2. However, the two sides agreed Garoppolo will work on the side field at practice as the Niners continue to look for a trade partner.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) reported to training camp Tuesday, July 26, and will avoid the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted Tuesday that Garoppolo's injury "created a holding pattern" and has left the 49ers in a "tough spot." What is clear is that Jimmy G will not be pushing Trey Lance in camp. Barring a significant injury to a starting quarterback during the preseason, Garoppolo's release appears to be the most likely way this ordeal will end. San Francisco desperately needs his contract off its books to make some other moves, such as extending Deebo Samuel.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is not expected to be a trade target for the Cleveland Browns even though he has been allowed to seek a trade.
Huddle Up: The Browns likely will go with Jacoby Brissett as their starter if Deshaun Watson is suspended, so Garoppolo does not appear to be an option. Fantasy players in most leagues can avoid Garoppolo this upcoming season.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has received permission to seek a trade, according to sources. Garoppolo has been cleared to start practicing as part of his recovery.
Huddle Up: Most of the teams are settled at quarterback, so it is not known if Garoppolo will be able to find a starting job. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team.

The Cleveland Browns had discussions about trading for San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo earlier this offseason, per source. The Browns possibly trading for Garoppolo will depend upon the length of Deshaun Watson's suspension if he receives one, the 49ers' asking price and the status of Garoppolo's recovery.
Huddle Up: If Watson gets suspended, the Browns are staring down the barrel of having Jacoby Brissett as their starter, which is far from ideal. Assuming he's healthy, Garoppolo would be a sizeable upgrade over Brissett.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) recently met with his doctor and is expected to receive full medical clearance by the middle of August, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo is still with the 49ers and likely will be the backup if he remains with the team. There is a chance that he will be with a new team before the start of the regular season, so fantasy players can monitor the situation. He should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team.

The New York Giants may pursue San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade, NFL Network's David Carr speculates. "Jimmy G can win some games for somebody. He absolutely still can play at a high level -- he won a lot of games in San Francisco. I think the only issue is just his health. If he's healthy, then very possibly the Giants can make a move."
