QB: Jimmy Garoppolo

Coach Kyle Shanahan announced Jimmy Garoppolo will start Week 8 against the Bears.v

Trey Lance (knee) will be back at practice this week, but Shanahan is sticking with Garoppolo despite the awful Week 7 start that saw him turn 27 attempts into 181 yards, one score, and a pair of picks. Garoppolo's leash is getting very short, but he's getting another chance under center. Deebo Samuel remains the only viable pass-catcher in this offense for fantasy while George Kittle remains out.
