  • Beathard completed 19 of 25 pass attempts for 288 yards, two touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Giants. He also carried five times for 15 yards and a touchdown in the 31-21 win. Beathard connected on an impressive 76 percent of his passes while averaging a healthy 11.5 yards per attempt. He found Marquise Goodwin on an 83-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and hit Garrett Celek for a 47-yard score just before the half. Beathard posted a solid yardage total for the second straight week and has now scored rushing touchdowns in three of his last four starts. Despite his improvement of late, the rookie could lose the starting gig to the newly acquired Jimmy Garoppolo after the team's upcoming bye week.

  • 49ers' C.J. Beathard: Starting Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Friday that Beathard will start Sunday's contest against the Giants, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Beathard will fend off Jimmy Garoppolo for another week, but at some point the 49ers will see what they have with their new signal caller. In the meantime, though, Beathard will focus on a Giants defense that has conceded at least three touchdown passes in four of the last five games.

  • Beathard completed 17 of 36 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while rushing six times for 40 yards in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Eagles. Beathard didn't get much help from the rest of his team's offense, as no other player broke 30 rushing yards or 40 receiving yards. The rookie third-rounder out of Iowa once again showed the ability to make plays with his legs after scoring a rushing touchdown last week, but his team has been outscored 73-20 in his two starts. Beathard shouldn't be on your radar outside of two-quarterback formats.

  • 49ers' C.J. Beathard: Struggles in first start
    By RotoWire Staff

    Beathard completed 22 of 38 pass attempts for 235 yards with no passing touchdowns or interceptions. He added 30 yards and a score on five carries in Sunday's blowout loss to the Cowboys. A four-yard TD scramble in the fourth quarter saved what would have been a fairly disappointing passing performance for the rookie at home against a less-than-intimidating passing defense. Beathard's offensive line did him no favors in his first NFL start, surrendering five sacks on the day. Most of the 23-year-old's completions were of the short and medium variety, but he did take a few shots downfield, notably connecting with Marquise Goodwin for 48 yards in the first quarter. While his skill set is better suited for ball-control offenses, the 49ers' inconsistent defense could lead to fantasy usefulness for Beathard in deeper formats due to sheer passing volume. The rookie signal caller may be asked to do even more throwing against a high-octane Eagles club next Sunday.

  • 49ers' C.J. Beathard: Named starting quarterback
    By RotoWire Staff

    Beathard completed 19 of 36 passes for 245 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 26-24 loss to Washington. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan called Beathard the 49ers' starting quarterback, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports. After San Francisco failed to move the ball at least 25 yards in the team's first four offensive drives, Beathard came in for Brian Hoyer and came close to leading a comeback from a 14-0 deficit, including a 75-yard touchdown drive on his second possession under center. Beathard's stats took a bit of a hit at the very end of the game when he forced a ball down field with the 49ers in desperation mode, but he still finished with a higher quarterback rating than Brian Hoyer has posted in four of his six starts. Moreover, San Francisco scored more in a little over a half with Beathard than in four of its first five full games. The 49ers are now winless and seem on the verge of potentially competing for Kirk Cousins or drafting a quarterback early next offseason. It makes sense to see what they have in their rookie -- who Shanahan has notably compared to Cousins -- as opposed to hobble down the stretch with Hoyer.
