Blaine Gabbert QB SF 4 months ago

Gabbert completed 28 of 44 passes for a career-high 354 yards, with one touchdown and an interception, in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win against the Rams.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gabbert had one of the most productive outings of his career, and set up the game-winning field goal in overtime by connecting with Quinton Patton on a 33-yard pass. While he generally didn't put up big numbers after taking over for an ineffective and injured Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) in Week 9, Gabbert certainly didn't embarrass himself, showing enough to possibly get him a starting job somewhere else, if not in San Francisco. With that said, he's probably projects as a poor man's Alex Smith (both QBs are more athletic than you think), and that's not really a great thing. In any case, he finishes the season with a 10:7 TD:INT ratio in seven games.

Gabbert connected on 22 of 33 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He fumbled during the game.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sunday represented Gabbert's first game with more than one touchdown pass since his first appearance of the season in Week 9 against Atlanta. Since taking over, Gabbert has accounted for more touchdowns than picks or fumbles in three of six games - or one better than Atlanta's Matt Ryan. That kind of so-so production is unlikely to prevent San Francisco from browsing for other options at quarterback this offseason or provide much confidence heading into Week 17's game against a Rams defense adept at getting after the passer.

Gabbert completed 30 of 50 passes for 295 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions in Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Bengals. He ran two times for 10 yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Against a solid secondary, Gabbert struggled to get much going, not throwing his TD until just 2:23 remaining in the game. He had done a good job protecting the ball before Sunday's three-turnover game, with just one interception over his previous four contests. He has some athleticism to make plays with his feet, as was the case in Week 13 when he ran for 75 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown scamper that forced overtime, but he's rushed for just 29 yards over the last two games. Next up for Gabbert and the 49ers will be a road game against Detroit.

Gabbert completed 18 of 28 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Browns. He also gained 19 yards on three carries.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old failed to top 200 yards passing for the second straight game, throwing one touchdown with no interceptions in each outing. Gabbert has done a good job protecting the ball over the past month, with just one interception in four games, but he has proven more than capable of posting lackluster stat lines. Gabbert carries little fantasy value at this time, and he will next face a Bengals defense that led the NFL in fewest points allowed per game heading into Week 14.

Gabbert completed 18 of 32 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown Sunday versus the Bears. He also ran six times for 75 yards and a crucial touchdown that sent the game into overtime.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The fifth-year pro failed to pile up numbers in the passing department, but his contribution on the ground salvaged the day for the 49ers and fantasy owners alike. Gabbert managed to avoid turning the ball over for the second time in the last three weeks, and he improved to 2-2 as San Francisco's starter. Gabbert's big day was by far his best fantasy performance of the season, and his production should be relatively volatile from week to week given the feeble nature of the 49ers offense. Week 14 will bring an away matchup against the Browns.

Gabbert completed 25 of 36 passes for 318 yards, with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Arizona. He also had one rush for 11 yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gabbert kept the 49ers in the game against a tough opponent, but was unable to lead a comeback in the end, completing a 19-yard pass in Cardinals' territory on 4th-and-20 late in the game. He has been surprisingly competent since taking over as the 49ers' starting QB in Week 9, and he's got a favorable matchup at Chicago next week, although the Bears' defense has played much better as of late.

Gabbert completed 22 of 34 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-13 loss at Seattle. He also ran four times for 22 yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gabbert played well in San Francisco's Week 9 win over Atlanta, leading them to a surprising victory. Things played out a little differently Sunday against the Legion of Boom, although Gabbert looked more than adequate as San Francisco's new starting QB, making several nice throws in and out of the pocket. With Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) on season-ending IR, Gabbert won't have to look over his shoulder each week. Next up for the 49ers will be another tough test against Arizona.

Gabbert will continue to serve as the starting quarterback out of the 49ers' Week 10 bye, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Under center in place of Colin Kaepernick on Sunday against the Falcons, Gabbert acquitted himself well in his first start since 2013, completing 15 of 25 passes for 185 and two touchdowns. He also tossed two picks, but of utmost importance, the 49ers boasted some balance, augmenting the passing game with 133 yards on the ground. Expect Gabbert to be under center on Nov. 22 at Seattle.

Gabbert completed 15-of-25 passes for 185 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's win over Atlanta. He added 32 yards on the ground on eight carries.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gabbert looked good early, connecting with his receivers on a handful of back-shoulder throws and finding his tight end Garrett Celek in the end zone twice. He unraveled a bit in the second half, tossing two picks, one off of a deflection and another on an underthrow. Gabbert has now thrown multiple interceptions in each of his last four starts dating back to 2013. His propensity for throwing picks and role presiding over a mediocre San Francisco offense makes him a high-risk, low-reward option wading in the free-agency pool.
