A quarterback change could be on the table for the 49ers this week.
“I don’t think [Nick Mullens] played very well, just looking at some of our situations, but that wasn’t all on him,” Shanahan said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “No one played very well, especially in the passing game.”
Mullens was 18-of-32 for 221 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions against the Buccaneers in Sunday’s 27-9 loss. The story said the team evaluates the QB position every week so it's possible a switch back to Beathard takes place for Week 13.
SF QB Nick Mullens - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams
Nick Mullens had 241 yards and an interception in a tight game against the Bears last week. Mullens has shown flashes of ability throughout the season, but overall, he’s yet to show he can put up any kind of consistent fantasy numbers in the 49ers’ offense. While Mullens is an interesting dynasty add in deep leagues in case he gets moved to another team in the offseason, he has very little value in redraft leagues. There should be better options available for streamers.
