Jimmy Garoppolo finishes as a top-5 fantasy quarterback in Week 3
The San Francisco 49ers are facing a red hot Kansas City Chiefs team that has put up some eye-popping offensive numbers. However, the Chiefs defense is going in the opposite direction surrendering 65 points and 876 passing yards in just two games.
This means Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be busy this weekend. He’ll need to keep the 49ers offense humming in order to keep pace with the Chiefs. It also means that he should have a great opportunity to put up some huge fantasy numbers.
Garoppolo rebounded this past weekend after a disappointing opening game of the season. He was able to lead the 49ers to a win over the Detroit Lions.
In the game against the Lions, the 49ers were able to establish a strong running game which limited Garoppolo’s passing attempts and fantasy output.
This week should be a bit of a different story with the Chiefs biggest weakness on defense being their secondary. The Chiefs were able to limit both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Chargers ground attack. It’s the passing game where they struggled.
Garoppolo is going to need to sling it around in order for the 49ers to stick with the Chiefs.
