49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Nick Mullens would remain the team's starting quarterback. Shanny said Mullens was "firmly" the Niners' starter headed into Week 10. Horrifically ineffective for three quarters Thursday night against the Packers, Mullens ended up with a respectable 291 yards and a touchdown thanks to some good old garbage time production. Mullens' up-and-down play has persisted throughout his starts and relief appearances this year, and he should be treated as a fringe option in superflex leagues for the rest of the season.
