Provides bare minimum for vcitory

Garoppolo (thumb/shoulder) completed 11 of 19 pass attempts for 131 yards and one interception in Saturday's 13-10 win over the Packers.

Garoppolo entered the contest at less than 100 percent, but he was able to brave the frigid conditions at Lambeau Field to get his team to the finish line. While the polarizing quarterback can be blamed for some dangerous throws that could have easily resulted in multiple interceptions, he certainly didn't get any help from his usually sure-handed receivers on some drive-ending drops in the first half. Garoppolo managed to skate by enough to let the stars around him advance the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game to face the winner of the Buccaneers and Rams on Sunday. As for next week, the veteran quarterback should easily check in as the cheapest DFS QB option after the field narrows to four teams.
