The San Francisco 49ers pick Trey Lance No. 3 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

49ers Pick Trey Lance No. 3 Overall In 2021 NFL Draft

Jimmy Garoppolo is still on the 49ers roster but might not be for long. After much speculation about whether San Francisco would take a quarterback and which one it might be, North Dakota’s Trey Lance was the selection.

There’s no question that Lance’s dual-threat talents were aspects that attracted the 49ers most, but after having only played one collegiate season, it’s difficult to assume he’ll come in and light up the scoreboard.

Trey Lance 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

In reality, the 49ers took Lance third overall, but you should be wary of using a draft pick on him in 2021. But if you do, make sure it’s the last round. He won’t get you to your league’s Super Bowl — let the veteran quarterbacks handle that.

Trey Lance Dynasty Fantasy Football Outlook

Taking a flyer on Lance in a dynasty league could pay off. Store him on your roster for future seasons and hope he pans out. He’s a top-5 pick in superflex rookie drafts and could be logical for late Round 1 or early Round 2 in other more typical fantasy football league formats.

San Francisco 49ers 2021 Win Total Bet

  • Over 10 Wins (-110)
  • Under 10 Wins (-110)

The 49ers’ 6-10 2020 record was largely due to injuries on both sides of the ball, Garoppolo first and foremost. Assuming Lance takes over quarterback duties in Frisco instantly gives them more wins, but I’ll still take theUnder. It’s rare for a rookie quarterback to come in and win games in his first season, especially this many in a tough NFC West division.

San Francisco 49ers 2021 Bet To Make The Playoffs

  • Yes (-150)
  • No (-135)

The NFC West is a tough division and adding a rookie quarterback won’t make getting to the playoffs any easier. Take the No.

The Seattle Seahawks always make winning the west difficult for their division rivals. The Arizona Cardinals are getting better every season under Kyler Murray, and Matthew Stafford could make the Rams a competitor.

Three teams with veteran quarterbacks versus one with a rookie don’t make the 49ers chances to win the NFC West very good.
