San Francisco 49ers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mullens quietly had his own coming-out party in the shadows of tight end George Kittle's star turn in 2018. The 23-year-old rookie went from practice squad quarterback, to one of the hottest starters down the stretch after racking up 2,277 passing yards and 13 touchdowns on 64 percent passing over the final eight games of the campaign. Mullen's aggressive downfield approach resulted in 10 interceptions over that span, but that same style earned him 8.3 YPA, which ranked fifth among all qualified NFL quarterbacks last year. As for this season, Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to come back healthy and reclaim his starting job right off the bat, leaving Mullens as the front runner in a competition for the backup job with C.J. Beathard, with the loser potentially being traded or cut before the 2019 season. Read Past Outlooks

Starts preseason opener

Mullens completed 11 of 17 pass attempts for 105 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's preseason win over the Cowboys.
Mullens is jockeying for position with C.J. Beathard to be Jimmy Garoppolo's primary backup this season. The fact that the 24-year-old started Saturday's contest gives him the early advantage over Beathard in the job competition. Both signal callers had very similar stat lines, so this battle could go down to the wire.
