Cowboys Acquire Trey Lance From 49ers

The Dallas Cowboys acquired former third overall pick, quarterback Trey Lance, from the San Francisco 49ers on Friday in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick, according to sources. The writing was on the wall for Lance to find a new home after the Niners announced Sam Darnold as Brock Purdy's backup earlier this week. The Cowboys have Dak Prescott locked in as their starter under center, but the presence of Lance will put some pressure on him to bounce back from a frustrating season in 2022. For now, the 23-year-old Lance will try to continue improving while battling with Cooper Rush for the backup job in his new digs. Until further notice, Lance remains off the fantasy radar in redraft leagues, and his long-term appeal may have only slightly improved with the move to Dallas.

Trey Lance Expected To Remain In San Francisco

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said on Thursday that the "most likely" result is that quarterback Trey Lance will remain on the team to begin the regular season as the No. 3 QB behind starter Brock Purdy and backup Sam Darnold. Lance is back at the team's facility on Thursday and is going to see action in the preseason finale on Friday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Niners named Darnold the backup on Wednesday and also said they were exploring all possibilities with Lance, leading many to believe he'd be traded. The 23-year-old's long-term fantasy value would probably look better with a change of scenery, but he could also see starts this year if Purdy or Darnold are injured or play poorly.

49ers Want Trey Lance To Play In Preseason Finale

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that he wants quarterback Trey Lance to come into the team's preseason finale on Friday against the Los Angeles Chargers after Brock Purdy and Sam Darnold. The Niners named Darnold the backup to Purdy on Wednesday, leaving Lance to open the year as the third-stringer if they keep him on the roster. It sounds as though the 49ers will consider trading Lance before the start of the season if they can find a deal to their liking. The former third overall pick will get one last audition for interested teams this Friday. The 23-year-old's fantasy stock is obviously way down entering the 2023 season, but perhaps a trade to a QB-needy team will make him more interesting once again.

49ers Exploring Options With Trey Lance

The San Francisco 49ers named quarterback Sam Darnold the No. 2 QB behind starter Brock Purdy on Wednesday, and the team is now exploring their options with Trey Lance, according to sources. The future of the third overall pick in 2021 is now unclear with San Francisco. Both Darnold and Lance have been talked up this offseason, but Darnold has impressed the coaching staff more throughout training camp and the preseason, so he'll begin the 2023 regular season in the backup role. The Niners could dangle the 23-year-old Lance in trade talks to see what they can get, and at this point, Lance's long-term fantasy appeal probably looks much brighter away from the Bay Area. If he sticks in San Fran this year, he'll need a couple injuries or poor performance from Purdy and Darnold to get an extended shot under center.

Trey Lance Looks Better In Second Preseason Game

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance looked comfortable and decisive in Saturday's 21-20 preseason win against the Denver Broncos. He took the bulk of the snaps and turned in a 12-for-18 performance for 173 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. He was far from perfect and probably should have had another interception, but he also made some impressive throws. Lance is slated to back up starter Brock Purdy, but he could emerge as a useful fantasy option if Purdy gets injured or loses the job.
