San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is not expected to be acquired by the New England Patriots during the 2021 NFL Draft or in the near future in part because the Patriots do not have the salary cap space to add Garoppolo's contract.
Huddle Up: The 49ers have stated that Garoppolo will be their starter next season, but there is no guarantee that he will be with the team at the start of the season. Cam Newton probably is the leading candidate for the starting job with the Patriots but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to the subject of multiple trade inquiries Thursday, April 29, but as of Thursday morning, the chances of Garoppolo being traded were 'remote,' according to a source.
Huddle Up: While Jimmy G hasn't been the most healthy or effective QB, he does have experience going for him, and that would be valuable early in the season with the Niners breaking in a rookie. Particularly if he's a raw rookie coming from the FCS level (Trey Lance).

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's future with the 49ers is reportedly now seen as 'bleak,' and San Francisco is expected to make a 'major effort' to trade him before or during the 2021 NFL Draft, according to 105.7 The Fan's Jason La Canfora.
Huddle Up: The expectation has been that Garoppolo would be moved following next season after the 49ers make a decision on their future quarterback at No. 3 overall on Thursday. It would be a bit premature for the 49ers to simply move on from Garoppolo and roll with an inexperienced rookie - presumptive No. 3 favorites Trey Lance and Mac Jones each made a mere 17 career starts in college - in head coach Kyle Shanahan's sophisticated offensive scheme. Expect Garoppolo to stick with San Fran for a bit longer.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo could become 'more available than he has been' and possibly be acquired for less than a first-round pick, in the opinion of NBC's Peter King.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo will be a backup in fantasy no matter where he plays. The position has that much depth right now.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has received some trade interest this offseason, but the 49ers have indicated that they would want a first-round pick in return for Garoppolo.
Huddle Up: General manager John Lynch has said Garoppolo will be the starter in 2021, but the team likely will select a quarterback with the third overall pick in the 2021 draft. Garoppolo probably will start for a team next season and should be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is still part of the team's plans even though they acquired the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to general manager John Lynch.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation because Garoppolo could be moved if the 49ers receive a solid trade offer. Garoppolo probably would be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is not a trade target for the New England Patriots at this point, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Patriots re-signed Cam Newton this offseason, and he appears to be the leading candidate to start at this point. He has some fantasy value because of his legs but would be only a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts. Garoppolo's status is uncertain after the 49ers acquired the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but he would also be a No. 2 quarterback if he remains the starter.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will not be traded and still figures in the team's plans, according to sources, despite the 49ers trading up to acquire the third-overall pick in the 2021 draft Friday, March 26.
Huddle Up: Sure, Jimmy G, could definitely still remain as a 2021 placeholder if the Niners, say, were to draft a Trey Lance, a QB with a very limited number of college starts. But the likelihood of a Garoppolo trade grew exponentially with Friday's blockbuster move, and if the right deal is offered, look for the Niners to deal him away without much hesitation.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said Wednesday, Feb. 24, the team will look to add a backup quarterback this offseason to insure against potential injury to starter Jimmy Garoppolo. 'Being available is a big part of this thing,' Lynch said. 'So we ... probably as a stated goal ... we have to insulate ourselves better. We got to have better options if he's not there.' Josh Rosen and Josh Johnson are the only other QBs under contract for 2021, along with Garoppolo.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be the starting quarterback for the 49ers next season as long as he is healthy, according to general manager John Lynch.
Huddle Up: Garoppolo was limited to six games this season because of injuries but has thrown 34 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if anything changes, but Garoppolo can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for the 49ers.
