Player Outlook

Blaine Gabbert could find himself as the starting quarterback for the 49ers this season, and if that happens then he could be a low-end No. 2 Fantasy option with moderate upside. Gabbert started eight games for the 49ers in 2015, and he was decent with at least 18 Fantasy points in a standard league in five outings. He only topped 20 points once, but the addition of new coach Chip Kelly could improve his stock. Now, the 49ers have a brutal receiving corps, which doesn't make Gabbert that attractive. But in deeper leagues, especially two-quarterback formats, we could see Gabbert be a bye-week or injury replacement. He's not worth drafting in most formats, but he could be added off waivers if he ends up starting for San Francisco this year.

Player News
  • Gabbert is the early leader for the starting quarterback job heading into training camp, CSN Bay Area reports. Gabbert's late-season success last year and his healthy presence during the team's OTAs are the likely reason he gets the early lead in the position battle. He provides a more stable option in comparison to Colin Kaepernick, but the latter could surpass him on the depth chart if he has a strong training camp and preseason.

  • Chip Kelly stated that he has "no idea" who will start at quarterback at this time, The Mercury News reports. Colin Kaepernick never got traded and Gabbert is taking first-team reps during San Francisco's offseason program. The former is still not cleared to fully participate in physical activities, so the depth chart is not telling at all. Kelly mentioned that when Kaepernick is at 100 percent, then the team will have a competition in camp leading up to the season. This is definitely a situation to monitor, as Kelly has made the likes of Mark Sanchez useful in fantasy with his up-tempo offense.

  • Gabbert completed 28 of 44 passes for a career-high 354 yards, with one touchdown and an interception, in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win against the Rams. Gabbert had one of the most productive outings of his career, and set up the game-winning field goal in overtime by connecting with Quinton Patton on a 33-yard pass. While he generally didn't put up big numbers after taking over for an ineffective and injured Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) in Week 9, Gabbert certainly didn't embarrass himself, showing enough to possibly get him a starting job somewhere else, if not in San Francisco. With that said, he's probably projects as a poor man's Alex Smith (both QBs are more athletic than you think), and that's not really a great thing. In any case, he finishes the season with a 10:7 TD:INT ratio in seven games.

  • Gabbert connected on 22 of 33 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He fumbled during the game. Sunday represented Gabbert's first game with more than one touchdown pass since his first appearance of the season in Week 9 against Atlanta. Since taking over, Gabbert has accounted for more touchdowns than picks or fumbles in three of six games - or one better than Atlanta's Matt Ryan. That kind of so-so production is unlikely to prevent San Francisco from browsing for other options at quarterback this offseason or provide much confidence heading into Week 17's game against a Rams defense adept at getting after the passer.
