News: 4 days agoGaroppolo completed 16 of 24 passes for 185 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Bills.
Spin: Garoppolo orchestrated a touchdown drive on the Raiders' opening possession, completing all three of his passes for 45 yards, highlighted by a 16-yard connection with Davante Adams for the score. However, he was intercepted one drive later, and his day continued to spiral from there as he was unable to consistently connect with any skill-position players besides Adams and Josh Jacobs. Through two games in Las Vegas, Garoppolo has shown the ability to run the offense efficiently at times, but he's also turned the ball over three times.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Garoppolo is the new starting QB in Las Vegas following six seasons with San Francisco. Garoppolo played a majority of the snaps in 10 games last season and was 14th in fantasy PPG during those weeks. That's not particularly impressive, but it was actually one of Garoppolo's best fantasy runs ever. He's never finished a season better than 14th in fantasy points (2019) and a big reason for that has been injuries (he's appeared in at least 10 games in only three of nine seasons). The 31-year-old offers the minimum with his legs (his career high of 62 rushing yards was set in 2019), so even with Davante Adams and newcomer Jakobi Meyers at his disposal, Garoppolo is nowhere close to the QB1 radar.
