Jimmy Garoppolo will start for the 49ers instead of Trey Lance.

The 49ers have made it obvious that they want Garoppolo ahead of Lance on the depth chart for the foreseeable future, similar to how Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy has stated Andy Dalton will start over rookie Justin Fields come September.
Lance may not start until his third NFL season, according to 49ers CEO Jed York, while general manager John Lynch stated in May that he wanted to keep Jimmy G as a starter and mentor throughout the process that led to the 49ers selecting Lance.
Lance gushed about working with Garoppolo earlier last month, and it appears that their friendship will continue until Shanahan says otherwise.
