Nick Mullens won't be tendered a contract by 49ers

The 49ers will not be tendering a contract to restricted free agent QB Nick Mullens.

Fantasy Impact

Mullens will become a true free agent this offseason. San Francisco has made it no secret that they want to upgrade their backup quarterback position this offseason, and this is the first step in that process.

Nick Mullens underwent successful elbow surgery in December

QB Nick Mullens underwent successful surgery on his right elbow in December and is expected to be ready by the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Mullens avoided Tommy John surgery and is expected to be ready by the start of training camp. “The damage was not as extensive as initially feared and did not require Tommy John surgery,” per Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network. He will be an unrestricted free agent and look to latch onto a team this offseason. Mullens threw for 2,437 yards and a 12:12 TD:INT ratio over 10 games for the 49ers in 2020.

Nick Mullens sustained elbow injury that will likely require surgery

49ers QB Nick Mullens (elbow) sustained an elbow injury in Week 15’s loss to the Cowboys that will likely require surgery. C.J. Beathard will be the starter against the Cardinals in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Beathard entered the game against the Cowboys after Mullens had to leave with an elbow injury. Being as Jimmy Garoppolo won’t play in Week 16, it’s going to be Beathard getting the start by default. He shouldn’t be considered anything more than a low-end QB2 for that game.

Nick Mullens (elbow) turns the ball over three times, exits early in loss

Nick Mullens completed 21-of-36 passes for 219 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during the 49ers' 33-41 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Mullens also lost a fumble on his lone rush attempt. All in all, it was an underwhelming performance against arguably the league's worst pass defense. Mullens struggled to move the ball and ended the game with three turnovers. He appeared to injure his elbow late in the game and C.J. Beathard entered the game in his place. It's worth noting that Kyle Shanahan would not commit to choosing a starter ahead of the team's Week 16 game against the Cardinals. It's unlikely Mullens has gotten you to the championship, but he won't be a recommended option if he is indeed back under center in Week 16.

Nick Mullens to get another start in Week 15

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told the media this week that QB Nick Mullens would more than likely start in Week 15 vs. the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Mullens will make his eighth start of the season as the 49ers take on the Cowboys in Week 15 with Jimmy Garoppolo still out due to an ankle injury. It’s a favorable matchup for him, but he still shouldn’t be considered much more than a low-end QB2.
