Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers QB Nick Mullens
Nick Mullens has been surprisingly good from a fantasy standpoint. He’s produced three games of 17+ fantasy points since taking over for Jimmy Garoppolo. But has only eclipsed the 20 point mark one time, thanks to a ton of garbage time yards against the Buffalo Bills.
Mullen’s isn’t going to toss for a ton of touchdowns this week, he’s only had two multiple-touchdown games in 2020. The Cowboys give up a lot of scores through the air, 27 this season, but don’t give up a lot of yards at all. That’s kind of the opposite of what Mullens does. He gets yards, but not a lot of scores.
San Francisco is a run-heavy team to begin with and Dallas gives up a good chunk of yards rushing each week. Mullens probably won’t play an overwhelming role in a win or a loss in this one.
