Coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Nick Mullens will remain the 49ers' starting quarterback following a Week 11 bye, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Fantasy Impact:

On the heels of two mostly steady performances from Mullens and the offense, Shanahan will stick with the undrafted quarterback during the team's next game Nov. 25 at Tampa Bay. Accounting from those outings reveals 70-percent passing (43 of 61), 256 yards per game and four touchdowns versus two interceptions from Mullens as San Francisco averaged 28.5 points per contest. At least for the foreseeable future, Mullens will fend off C.J. Beathard for reps under center.

49ers will start Nick Mullens at QB on Monday night against Giants.

Related players: C.J. Beathard

Fantasy Impact:

Mullens threw for 262 yards and three TDs with no interceptions, but it was against the Raiders last week. The good news is, Mullens gets the Giants on Monday night, but the G-men are ranked 5th in allowing points to opposing QBs. Mullens may have some value for those in deeper leagues or in two-QB leagues.

Giants to stick with QB Eli Manning

ESPN - [Full Article]

Quarterback Eli Manning will start for the New York Giants against the San Francisco 49ers next Monday night, coach Pat Shurmur announced Tuesday.

Shurmur said he discussed with Manning the need to play better and also expressed that to the entire team.

Fantasy Impact:

Before the team's bye, Shurmur had said "we'll see" when asked if Manning would keep his starting job. The Giants are 1-7 and average 18.8 points per game, which is 27th in the NFL. Manning has been sacked a league-high 31 times.

Shurmur also said Tuesday that he will not suspend backup quarterback Lauletta for his arrest last week.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert to have arm surgery, go on IR

According to Matt Maiocco, "Raheem Mostert fractured his right forearm. He had surgery today. He’ll go on IR."

Fantasy Impact:

A tough break (pun intended) for Mostert who had come on in spots this season, his injury will help Matt Breida and likely give Alfred Morris his 200th shot at fantasy relevance. This backfield can be difficult to dissect on a weekly basis due to Breida's constant injury woes and Morris' meh-ness. If you have to start one, it's Breida who is an RB3 in our rest-of-season rankings. Morris is more of a desperation flex play who needs to score a touchdown to help your roster.

49ers RB Matt Breida expected to play

49ers’ RBs Matt Breida (ankle) and RB Raheem Mostert (ankle), both listed as questionable for tonight, both expected to play vs. Raiders, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

It seems like Brieda is good to go tonight against the Raiders. He should be in line for plenty of work, with our projections showing around 15 touches. Expect RB2/3 numbers from the explosive RB, as he may cede some work to Mostert and Alfred Morris. Neither of the two latter backs is worth starting.

49ers QB C.J. Beathard will not start Thursday night

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

San Francisco’s starting quarterback tonight against the Oakland Raiders will be Nick Mullens, per source. C.J. Beathard will serve as his backup, but with his wrist injury affecting his grip on the football, Mullens will make his first NFL start and throw his first NFL pass.

Fantasy Impact:

We didn't anticipate Beathard would start, so this news doesn't impact our rankings of the 49ers other offensive options. Matt Breida keeps his RB2/3 status, Marquise Goodwin checks in as a WR4, and George Kittle stays in TE1 territory.

Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 7:46pm

49ers QB C.J. Beathard (right wrist, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Beathard is expected to play through the wrist injury. Nick Mullens likely starts if Beathard can’t play.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 7:46pm

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Breida is “healthy,” per HC Kyle Shanahan and “didn’t have any setbacks” in Week 8. We expect him to play through the ankle injury.

49ers QB C.J. Beathard uncertain for Week 9

49ers Kyle Shanahan on C.J. Beathard: His wrist hurts, struggling today to hold the ball, we'll see how he is tomorrow.

Related players: Nick Mullens, Tom Savage

Fantasy Impact:

The tweet went on to say Beathard would be good if playing on Sunday. It's going to be a test for Thursday and the short week and the team probably won't know until then. Mullens and Savage are next up on the depth chart.
