    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Finishes third on depth chart

    C.J. Beathard did not see the field while serving as the San Francisco 49ers' third-string quarterback in 2019.San Francisco -- in unorthodox fashion -- decided to keep three quarterbacks on its 53-man roster after the team was unable to trade backups Nick Mullens and Beathard during the preseason. This move showed the confidence the coaching staff has in the 26-year-old's abilities as a signal caller. Beathard's 57.3 completion percentage and 12:13 TD:INT ratio came in less-than-ideal conditions, but he has shown to have accuracy on shorter pass attempts with some athleticism as a runner when called upon. Both he and Mullens can be kept around on affordable contracts for 2020, so it will be interesting to see if the team decides to run with three quarterbacks again following a healthy season from starter Jimmy Garoppolo.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Not playing Monday

    C.J. Beathard is inactive for Monday's tilt against the Browns.Beathard is a healthy scratch with Jimmy Garoppolo and Nick Mullens both ready to go. Barring an injury to either of those two signal-callers, Beathard lacks a clear path to fantasy relevance this season.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Stays on roster as third QB

    C.J. Beathard survived the final roster cuts Saturday, but he will begin the year as third on the quarterback depth chart behind Jimmy Garoppolo and Nick Mullens, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.It was a bit surprising the San Francisco 49ers actually kept three quarterbacks on the active roster, but it was not surprising that Mullens beat Beathard for the primary backup job based on their usage this preseason and their results last year. The 25-year-old should be one of seven inactives on game days this season, and it would take injuries to both quarterbacks ahead of him in order to even sniff fantasy relevance.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Healthy scratch Saturday

    C.J. Beathard was not used in Saturday's dress rehearsal preseason game against the Chiefs.Beathard was not listed on the injury report, so Saturday's absence heavily signifies that Nick Mullens will be Jimmy Garoppolo's primary backup to begin the regular season. That said, head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the San Francisco 49ers will unconventionally keep all three of its signal callers this season, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports. The possibility remains that one of the NFL-capable backups is traded before the season (potentially to Indianapolis following Andrew Luck's sudden retirement).

As of now, Beathard is unable to comfortably grip a football and will not be able to practice until he can.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Solid line Saturday

    C.J. Beathard completed 13 of 17 passes for 141 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's preseason opener against Dallas.Nick Mullens started this contest, which suggests that he has the early edge over Beathard for being Jimmy Garoppolo's backup this season. Both quarterbacks completed well over 50 percent of their passes and had a touchdown and a pick apiece, so neither really separated themselves from the other Saturday. Expect this job battle to go on until the final stage of roster cuts.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Getting shot at No. 2 job

    C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens will start the offseason program on even ground in a competition for the No. 2 quarterback job, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "We'll rotate C.J. [Beathard] and Nick [Mullens] with the twos," coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. "[We'll] flip a coin the first day."A 2017 third-round pick, Beathard has just one victory in 10 NFL starts, with his functional ability to move the ball (6.8 YPA, 4.6 YPC) negated by a plethora of sacks (37), interceptions (13) and fumbles (eight). Mullens lacks the draft pedigree and had the same issues with sloppy mistakes, but he at least went 3-5 as the starter last season while completing 64.2 percent of his passes for 8.3 yards per attempt. With two capable backup quarterbacks on hand, the San Francisco 49ers would be wise to consider a trade, though that's far from a sure thing with Jimmy Garoppolo working his way back from an ACL tear. Despite what Shanahan said, Mullens should have the upper hand in this competition.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Falls out of favor in 2018

    C.J. Beathard started five games for the San Francisco 49ers this season, finishing with 1,252 passing yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 60 percent of his passes.Beathard took over for Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) starting in Week 4, and while he couldn't lead the 49ers to a victory in his five starts, he performed adequately from a statistical standpoint. Still, the 49ers' losing streak forced Kyle Shanahan's hand, and he benched the 25-year-old in favor of practice-squad quarterback Nick Mullens. The latter possessed a stronger arm and was able to make some big plays for the team, leaving Beathard on the bench for the rest of the campaign. The initial assumption is that Garoppolo will be ready to go next season, so the 49ers will have to make a decision on who their backup quarterback will be. Beathard and Mullens figure to compete in camp, with the latter having the upper hand based on how the 2018 season concluded. It wouldn't be surprising to see San Francisco trade one of the two young signal-callers, as both have proved that they can play at the NFL level.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Won't start Week 13

    C.J. Beathard will remain the San Francisco 49ers' backup quarterback for the team's Week 13 game with the Seahawks after coach Kyle Shanahan announced Monday that Nick Mullens would retain the starting role, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.Mullens will be under center for the fourth consecutive game, but Shanahan made it clear that the Southern Mississippi product's grip on the No. 1 gig is far from secure. Since lighting up the Raiders for 11.9 yards per attempt and three touchdowns in his NFL debut in Week 9, Mullens has regressed badly in his last two outings against mediocre teams in the Giants and Buccaneers, completing 63.4 of his passes for 6.6 YPA, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Mullens will face his stiffest test to date on the road versus the 6-5 Seahawks and could be at risk of getting benched if he struggles for the third game in a row. That would pave the way for Beathard to get another look, but the 2017 third-round pick hasn't proved to be any better of an option through his first two seasons in the league. Over 13 appearances (10 starts), Beathard has completed 57.3 percent of his passes for 6.8 YPA and a 12:13 TD:INT while fumbling eight times.
