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

The 49ers tendered Mullens to a one-year contract Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old was seldom-used by the 49ers in 2020, only recording three kneel downs behind Jimmy Garoppolo. Mullens is just one year removed from throwing for 2,277 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2018 after Garoppolo tore his ACL. Mullens is expected to provide stability as the backup heading into the 2020 season.
