Fantasy Impact:

With Garoppolo considered week-to-week with an ankle injury, Shanahan dubbed Mullens the likely starter early in the week as he’s going to take all the first team reps in practice. Mullens has shown he is a highly capable backup when given the opportunity, and could surprise a few people with a solid performance in Week 3 against the Giants.
