2016 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


In limited action in his first two years in the NFL, Garoppolo completed 64.5 percent of his career passes with his first and only NFL TD. Garoppolo will be groomed to be the next Patriots quarterback after Tom Brady. He went to a lower level school (Eastern Illinois), but his success as a senior (5050 yards with 53 TDs and 9 Ints) gave him a chance of being a top five QB selected in the 2014 draft. Jimmy has size (6'3" and 226 lbs.) with a quick release. Most of his plays were from the shotgun in college, and he rarely saw pressure. Garoppolo does a good job selling his ball fakes when pulling the ball back from the running back and twitching his shoulders on play fake passes. His arm is solid, but he throws too many passes without tight spin. Jimmy isn't a threat in the running game (4.97 40 dash at the combine and -0.3 yards per carry in his college career), but he will make the occasional play on the ground (8 career rushing TDs). Garoppolo finished his college career with 13,156 passing yards as a four-year starter at Eastern Illinois with 118 TDs and 51 INTs. The NFL game will be much quicker, and Garoppolo's ability to read defenses will be challenged. If Brady does indeed sit out four games, Jimmy will have a chance to put himself in position for a huge payday shortly.
