QB - SF
Week 12 Outlook
If you ever contemplated Garoppolo as a streamer, then you should be considering Mullens, though that's probably not a good idea this week, as the Rams are arguably the best defense in the league. Despite facing 36.1 pass attempts per game (10th-most), the Rams have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks. Mullens isn't mobile, so let's just look at the fantasy production through the air alone against the Rams. They've allowed just 0.339 fantasy points per actual pass attempt, which ranks as the lowest mark in football, while the closest team (Bears) have allowed 0.393 points per attempt. That's a remarkable 13.7 percent gap. They're good. The crazy part is that Garoppolo is the one of just two quarterbacks who had a good game against them this year, throwing for 268 yards and three touchdowns. Does Kyle Shanahan have their number? I'm not willing to recommend Mullens to find out.
