49ers trade for QB Blaine Gabbert


49ers trade for QB Blaine Gabbert

Talk about going from the outhouse to the penthouse. 2011 draft bust Blaine Gabbert @BlaineGabbert lost his starting job in Jacksonville last season, and no matter what city he called home in 2014, he was going to continue to be a backup. Today, Gabbert became a backup for the NFC Champions in two of the past three years.
The Jags traded Gabbert to the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday for a sixth-round pick, sources have told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Analysis:

I can't believe that any team would give up anything to acquire Gabbert. This is a player who threw seven interceptions and one touchdown in three games last season. I'm flabbergasted.
Anyway, Gabbert will presumably have to compete to back up Colin Kaepernick @Kaepernick7. Colt McCoy @ColtMcCoy is a free agent, so it's unknown whom his competition will be. He has no fantasy value, God forbid that Kaepernick suffers a major injury.
