2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: JIMMY GAROPPOLO SET TO BE 2017 VERSION OF CARSON WENTZ IN 2018

When it came to 2017 fantasy football drafts, Philadelphia Eagles second-year QB Carson Wentz was considered more or less a backup in single passer leagues.  While Wentz played well at times as a rookie, he also was grossly inconsistent during the second half of the year to the point no one actively sought him out as a starter.  Those who did however wound up with an overnight star and a leading fantasy football candidate before Wentz went down with a torn ACL in Week 14.  Previous to the injury though, Wentz was a passing maestro who compiled 33 touchdown passes, just 7 interceptions, and 3,296 yards through the air which had him right there with Russell Wilson as the most productive QB in all of fantasy football.  As tough as the ending to Wentz' season has been, there are signs that a clone of his is set to put up similarly impressive numbers in 2018.  That would be the San Francisco 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo whoo has already come off the bench and led a one-win team to two straight road games the last two weeks.  In those two games, Garoppolo has tossed a touchdown and thrown for over 290 yards in each in showing the pinpoint accuracy and quick release that many believe will lead to him being a star in short order.  Those who choose to wait on drafting their QB's should have Garoppolo right at the top of their lists for 2018 fantasy football as the upside is massive and the comparisons to Wentz are very accurate.  Even through the last two weeks of 2017, Garoppolo should be owned in all two-QB formats and Wentz owners should have been all over him already.  The kid is going to be a star.
