25-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
San Francisco 49ers
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Mullens did not attempt a pass during the regular season with Jimmy Garoppolo returning to full strength in 2019. San Francisco unconventionally kept three quarterbacks on its 53-man roster, but the 25-year-old served as the primary backup over C.J. Beathard, with the latter occupying one of the seven inactive slots on game days. Mullens showed that he could air it out a bit (284.6 yards per game) when called upon in 2018, but that came at the expense of ball protection (13 touchdowns to 10 interceptions). Consider the former undrafted free agent a poor man's Jameis Winston if he is asked to step in for Jimmy G at any point during the 2020 campaign. Read Past Outlooks

Mullens signed his exclusive rights free-agent tender Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
As expected, Mullens will remain with the 49ers after the club tendered him shortly before the new league year. Mullens will stick as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup for at least the upcoming season.

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.
