FANTASY FOOTBALL QB SHEEP STRATEGY MISS THE PLAYOFFS (Jimmy G.)
BEAST DOME NATION.
The QB position, a position where nearly all the Fantasy Experts mislead you telling to take Marcus Mariota and Andy Dalton as Top 10 QBs. It is funny as I write this because 4for4 is leading with their campaign they send out every season to get new users, (92% of our users make the Playoffs). They told everyone to draft Andy Dalton as their QB of 2017, they should change their slogan to 92% of our users missed the Playoffs last season.
This season the QB picture is different as it is different every season. There is a new Top 20 QB that everyone is trying to get their hands all over, some Experts even rank him as a Top 10 QB.
JIMMY GAROPPOLO – SF
There are plenty more Experts, but all of these guys and gilrs, rank Jimmy G as QB1 or better in 12 man leagues. To depend on Jimmy G this season, you are asking a lot. For starters, Jimmy G. does not have a lot of talent on his offense. Jerrick McKinnon is not good enough to be a starting RB for probably 90% of the teams in the NFL. He can also not take that many carries each week if they want to preserve him for the season. When you factor that in, Defenses will have the ability to drop back and watch the pass with a closer eye.
The most important factor to a QBs success is his WRs. Unless you are Tom Brady who can make your weapons what they need to be, and Jimmy G. did learn from the best. However Jimmy has a WR core that would leave many QBs with far less than QB2 numbers on a consistent basis. Pierre Garcon continues to play well but after a serious knee injury, how many hits can Garcon really take over the middle. Marquise Goodwin is nothing but speed, not great hands, not great route running, just pure speed.
What Jimmy G did do which is amazing, he won games. He went 5-0 beating 3 playoff teams in the process, in those games he never went over the 300+ Yard/2 TD mark in the same game. Which by Fantasy Football Standard leagues = 20 Points. Which is QB1 material.
With a full season you can expect Jimmy G. to get better, but you can also expect more defenses to have more game tape of Jimmy G. even Jalen Ramsey made this point and with more tape comes less surprises. While Jimmy has the tools to be a BEAST QB, he does not have the weapons. To draft Jimmy as your QB1 or even QB2 for that matter, you are depending on him as a person to do it all and not leave anything up to the talent around him.
When you consider all that above and take into consideration that the 49ers have one of the toughest schedules in the NFL, especially against the pass. Relying on Jimmy G. is the quickest way to end your season and lot of these Sheep Experts are going down that path.
