SANTA CLARA – It’s not reality, yet. But for fantasy football purposes, the potential starting debut of Trey Lance has everyone’s attention.
Here’s who to start and sit in the 49ers’ visit Sunday to the Arizona Cardinals:
START HIM: QB Trey Lance
Buyer beware: He hasn’t been anointed the starter, yet, as the 49ers are hesitant to rule out Jimmy Garoppolo. Still, Lance seems on the verge of his first career start, and with it could come a bevy of fantasy points, both with his strong arm and nimble legs. Add him to the roster and check this website by Sunday morning to confirm he’s starting or not.
Three other nominees: WR Deebo Samuel, RB Elijah Mitchell, TE George Kittle
SIT HIM: K Robbie Gould
This is a friendly reminder that Gould went on injured reserve because of last Sunday’s pregame groin strain. Joey Slye is his replacement in what could be a high-scoring affair (and could be worth a flier).
Three other nominees: 49ers defense, WR Brandon Aiyuk, FB Kyle Juszczyk
