San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert completed 28 of 44 passes for 354 yards, a touchdown an interception in a 19-16 win over the St. Louis Rams in Week 17.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert hasn't been spectacular by any means, but he has thrown at least one touchdown in every game he has played in this year. If he opens next year as the starter, he could be a serviceable QB2.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick could be on his way out of San Francisco, in the opinion of Matt Maiocco of CSBBayArea.com. Maiocco said it's difficult to come up with a scenario in which Kaepernick and the 49ers agree to maintain their union in 2016. If Kaepernick does not return, QB Blaine Gabbert would likely take over the starting quarterback reins.
Fantasy Tip: No matter what happens this offseason, the 49ers' quarterback situation won't be the prettiest in the league. Gabbert has been underperforming his whole career, and Kaepernick obviously isn't working out. At this point neither would be worth drafting next season.
Thu, 10 Dec 2015 14:45:03 -0800
San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin, who has seen 31 targets from QB Blaine Gabbert in his three starts this year, believes Gabbert can be the long-term quarterback in San Francisco. Boldin said Gabbert has "wheels" and "can throw the ball with the best of them." Boldin has 18 catches for 223 yards in three starts with Gabbert this year.
Fantasy Tip: Boldin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has seen his fantasy value been revived thanks to Gabbert. Boldin should once again be a fine value pick in daily formats against a weak Cleveland Browns secondary this weekend. Pairing Gabbert ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) with Boldin isn't a bad strategy as a sleeper, either, and it'll save you lots of cash elsewhere.
Sun, 06 Dec 2015 15:19:16 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert ran for the tying touchdown and then threw a 71-yard bomb to WR Torrey Smith in overtime to give his team a 26-20 win over the Chicago Bears. Gabbert was 18 of 32 for 196 yards in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is proving to be a decent fill-in for injured QB Colin Kaepernick. It's too soon to tell whether Gabbert will take this job into 2016, but games like this don't hurt. He had 14 incompletions, but a win is a win.
Sun, 29 Nov 2015 22:10:14 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert completed 25 of his 36 pass attempts for 318 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He also ran once for 11 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert had a strong performance against a solid Arizona defense, and his confidence appears to be growing each week. With Colin Kaepernick on the Reserve/Injured list, it is Gabbert's job down the stretch. When the matchup is favorable he isn't a terrible mid-tier FantasyScore option.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 15:31:08 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert has recorded three of the top four ball-carrier speeds by a quarterback in the last three weeks. He raced to 20.33 mph on a 10-yard scramble last weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has the ability to escape the pocket and make plays with his legs, but he remains a low-end daily quarterback with a stiff matchup in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 20:29:37 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert completed 22 of his 34 pass attempts for 264 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He also ran four times for 22 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert has the job for the rest of the season with Colin Kaepernick hitting the Reserve/Injured list this week. Gabbert hasn't been terrible, and could make for a decent FantasyScore option at a good price when the matchup is favorable.
Mon, 09 Nov 2015 16:26:44 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert will be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers have a bye in Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert had a decent game in Week 9 where he threw for 185 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Gabbert will be facing a tough Seattle defense in Week 11 and should not be a starting option.
Sun, 08 Nov 2015 22:49:53 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert was not officially named as the starter beyond Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. "Gabbert was our starter today," head coach Jim Tomsula said Sunday, Nov. 8. "And I don't have comment past that."
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert and the 49ers have a bye in Week 10 before returning Nov. 22 to face the Seattle Seahawks. Whether it is Gabbert or Colin Kaepernick under center against Seattle, it is an unfavorable matchup and neither is attractive for FantasyScore purposes.
Sun, 08 Nov 2015 19:42:58 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert started against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9, but he has not been named the starter against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 11. "Gabbert was our starter today, and I don't have a comment past that," head coach Jim Tomsula said. "We got a win today."
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was good enough to guide the 49ers to a win, but he isn't a starting option at FantasyScore, especially against the Seahawks if he starts after the bye week.
Fri, 06 Nov 2015 10:11:18 -0800
San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Geep Chryst sees a lot of Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith in QB Blaine Gabbert. "Alex came here, was very young and played, had to slug out a lot of tough situations," Chryst said. "We felt like Blaine had all this talent, and as a young player, maybe a change of scenery would be good for him. He's really applied himself well in the classroom. He's engaged and active; he's a really bright guy." Gabbert, however, has lost 10 straight starts and hasn't won a game since Sept. 23 of 2012. He completed 82.1% of his passes for 203 yards with a touchdown and no interception in the preseason, but he was also sacked four times.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will be starting this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons at home with a much different offense at his disposal. There is nothing to like for fantasy owners in any format here.
Wed, 04 Nov 2015 19:49:55 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was demoted from the starting unit, but the banishment might not be permanent. Head coach Jim Tomsula would not commit to QB Blaine Gabbert long term, and said he wants Kaepernick to "step back" and "take a look at things."
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick actually hasn't tossed an interception in 134 attempts, but that can be chalked up to timid and careful play. Gabbert ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) sounds like he will be auditioning for the starting gig on a weekly basis, starting in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Wed, 04 Nov 2015 10:52:43 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert was named the starter Sunday, Nov. 8, against the Atlanta Falcons, according to head coach Jim Tomsula.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has had very little success in his pro career and isn't worth the flyer on FantasyScore.
Mon, 02 Nov 2015 19:46:42 -0800
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert will make the start in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, as beat writer Cam Inman confirmed Monday, Nov. 2, that the team has benched QB Colin Kaepernick.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) could be a deep sleeper in FantasyScore heading into Week 9 as he faces a Falcons pass defense which ranks 24th in the NFL by allowing 262.0 yards per game.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:33:01 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR DeAndrew White was on the receiving end of long passes from both QB Colin Kaepernick and QB Blaine Gabbert during practice Thursday, Aug. 27.
Thu, 13 Aug 2015 14:25:37 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert has received plenty of praise from head coach Jim Tomsula. "I'm a believer in Blaine Gabbert. I am, just point blank," Tomsula said. "We're building a team, in terms of the on-the-field play and the team – Blaine Gabbert, that's a beautiful piece." Gabbert was the 49ers backup quarterback last year and only saw action in the fourth quarter in one game.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert will open the season as Kaepernick's backup yet again. San Fran's new coaching staff may be high on Gabbert and could utilize him to his strengths if he sees playing time, but he can be avoided in all fantasy drafts.
Tue, 11 Aug 2015 15:58:02 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert praised offensive coordinator Geep Chryst and quarterbacks coach Steve Logan Tuesday, Aug. 11, for the way they've been communicating with the quarterbacks while in the huddle.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert went on to praise starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick for how he has adapted and improved under the new play-calling procedure, saying Kaepernick has looked more comfortable in the offense.
Sat, 23 May 2015 20:02:38 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert was accurate with his throws during practice Thursday, May 21, and he was able to scramble for chunks of yardage when plays broke down.
Sat, 23 May 2015 19:56:04 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith was a featured part of the offense during practice Thursday, May 21, connecting with QB Colin Kaepernick on several plays and catching a touchdown from QB Blaine Gabbert in the red zone.
Fantasy Tip: Smith still figures to do a lot of his damage via big plays down the field, but he should see enough targets on a weekly basis to warrant consideration as a WR2 in traditional formats. In PPR leagues, he is more of a WR3.
Thu, 12 Mar 2015 12:55:06 -0700
Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert agreed to terms on a two-year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Tue, 10 Mar 2015 17:45:38 -0700

Sat, 23 Aug 2014 10:15:29 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert is the team's No. 2 quarterback, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. This squelches any rumors that Josh X. Johnson would take over the backup role.
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 01:48:52 -0700
After another poor outing by San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert, sources indicate there has been some talk about QB Josh X. Johnson being moved to the No. 2 slot behind QB Colin Kaepernick.
Fantasy Tip: While Johnson would still carry little fantasy value as the backup to Kaepernick, the real story here is how far Gabbert's value may have slid. When you can't even be a competent backup then alarm bills will ring.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 17:54:57 -0700
The San Francisco 49ers will determine their backup quarterback by which candidate does not turn the ball over, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. QBs Blaine Gabbert and McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw interceptions during the second preseason game, while QB Josh X. Johnson lost a fumble.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 16:34:34 -0700
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said the team isn't looking for backup quarterbacks outside of the organization. QBs Blaine Gabbert and Josh X. Johnson are competing for the role.
Sat, 16 Aug 2014 18:07:16 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert was booed throughout practice Friday, Aug. 15, after missing several throws. The poor practice came on the heels of a preseason debut that saw Gabbert complete just three of 11 pass attempts.
Wed, 18 Jun 2014 12:36:48 -0700
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh likes what he has seen from QB Blaine Gabbert. "Very impressed with Blaine mentally, physically – all attributes that you'd like to see in a quarterback," Harbaugh said. "He's been very good, very solid. (He's) picked up everything very quickly. It's going well. Everything is progressing well. I think you'll watch it when you have a chance to see it today and look at it for yourself. In my eye, it looks very good."
Wed, 18 Jun 2014 10:56:50 -0700
The San Francisco 49ers may consider keeping only two quarterbacks on their final roster in order to use the extra roster spot at another position. QBs Blaine Gabbert, Josh X. Johnson, McLeod Bethel-Thompson and Kory Faulkner will compete for the No. 2 quarterback job, but Gabbert likely has an edge since his 2014 salary is fully guaranteed.
Fri, 02 May 2014 21:04:32 -0700
The San Francisco 49ers have decided not to pick up the fifth-year option in QB Blaine Gabbert's contract.
Wed, 12 Mar 2014 09:45:23 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert won't be a lock to be the backup to QB Colin Kaepernick this year, and ESPN analyst and former general manager Bill Polian doesn't think Gabbert will make the 53-man roster. Head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke like Gabbert, though, and they'll give him a chance. "We thought highly of Blaine as an early entry into the 2011 NFL draft," said Baalke. "He is a high-character individual that will be given every opportunity to develop within our system and we are looking forward to working with him."
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert has shown poor pocket presence in the NFL and also hasn't been able to stay healthy. He wouldn't be a very attractive backup option, even if Kaepernick were injured and missed significant time in 2014.
Tue, 11 Mar 2014 14:10:56 -0700
The San Francisco 49ers have acquired QB Blaine Gabbert from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a sixth-round draft choice.
Tue, 11 Mar 2014 14:10:21 -0700
The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded QB Blaine Gabbert to the San Francisco 49ers for a sixth-round draft choice.
Fri, 07 Mar 2014 10:34:20 -0800
The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed QB Chad Henne to an undisclosed two-year deal Friday, March 7.
Fantasy Tip: This won't preclude the Jags from drafting a quarterback with their third overall pick in this year's draft or searching for a capable QB to compete with Henne in free agency, but it makes that need less pressing. Henne returning likely means Blaine Gabbert is done in Jacksonville, however.
Sat, 01 Feb 2014 17:55:34 -0800
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert is unlikely to be back with the team, as they have made it known they would like to re-sign QB Chad Henne, and plan to draft at least one, or perhaps two, quarterbacks in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Tue, 07 Jan 2014 11:51:38 -0800
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said he saw improvement in QB Blaine Gabbert in the second half of the season despite the fact that the team went with QB Chad Henne down the stretch. "I feel like you certainly see a nice evolution," Fisch said. "Of course, it's different playing games, but I do think his maturity level showed through. We could have been a storyline and we weren't. When you make a change in the starting quarterback, that can happen. He handled himself in such a professional manner that maybe there was growth from a maturity standpoint for him." There is speculation that Gabbert will be traded or released this offseason, but general manager Dave Caldwell said he would like Gabbert to return and compete for the job.
Tue, 31 Dec 2013 10:56:03 -0800
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said he wants QB Blaine Gabbert to return in 2014. "I talked with Blaine (Monday) and told him he's a Jaguar and we'd like to have him back," Caldwell said. "He's under contract and he has made great strides this year. He wants to be back. That says a lot about Blaine, and we're just taking it day-by-day and we'll go from there."
Tue, 31 Dec 2013 09:28:41 -0800
The Jacksonville Jaguars appear likely to keep QB Blaine Gabbert for the final year of his contract, unless they draft another quarterback with the third overall pick in next year's draft. It will be hard for Jacksonville to keep Gabbert if they re-sign QB Chad Henne and draft another quarterback. The Jaguars would like to keep at least one player on the roster who is familiar with the offensive system.
Thu, 21 Nov 2013 09:51:21 -0800
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said QB Blaine Gabbert has not been ruled out as a starter at some point for non-injury reasons.

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 10:23:37 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) will be active in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he'll serve as the backup to QB Chad Henne. Henne has outplayed Gabbert by completing 59.5 percent of his passes for 1,222 yards and two touchdowns and five interceptions. Gabbert has completed 48.8 percent of his passes for 481 yards, one TD and seven picks in his three starts.
Fantasy Tip: Gabbert could move back into the starting role at some point if Henne falls flat on his face. Stay away from the QB situation here if you can help it.
Wed, 23 Oct 2013 08:28:42 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will remain the team's starting quarterback, even when QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) is healthy.

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 15:24:24 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 13:02:31 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) will miss Week 7 against the San Diego Chargers, giving QB Chad Henne another start. Head coach Gus Bradley said Gabbert could be out past Week 7, too. "Blaine will throw on the side (this week)," Bradley said. "We'll see where it is. It is an injury that may take a couple weeks. We'll get him to start throwing on the side. We'll see when Blaine comes back but right now Chad is our quarterback for the San Diego game."
Fantasy Tip: Henne had a decent day against the Denver Broncos in Week 6 despite throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns. Against SD, he makes for another alluring bye-week filler at the QB position.
