    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Starts two games in 2020

    C.J. Beathard appeared in six games (two starts) with the San Francisco 49ers in 2020, completing 66 of 104 pass attempts for 787 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also lost three fumbles and logged six carries for 28 yards.Beathard played like an efficient game manager when called upon by the 49ers, and he led the team to a win over the Cardinals in Week 16 before closing out the year with a narrow 26-23 loss to the Seahawks in Week 17. Now set to become an unrestricted free agent, Beathard should have displayed enough competence during his San Francisco tenure to compete for a backup role elsewhere in the league.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Manages 49ers to victory

    C.J. Beathard completed 13 of 22 pass attempts for 182 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a Week 16 win over the Cardinals.Beathard was content to check down for much of the game and targeted his tight ends and backs on 17 of his attempts. Even so, he passed for three touchdowns of 21, nine and one yard -- two of which went to Kyle Juszczyk. Beathard played relatively mistake-free -- his only turnover came on a lost fumble -- and he is likely to draw another start in Week 17 against the Seahawks.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Named starting QB

    C.J. Beathard was named the starting quarterback for Saturday's game against the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.Nick Mullens will require season-ending elbow surgery, opening the door for Beathard to make his 11th career start and his first of the season. Beathard entered the game in Mullens' place during last week's loss to the Cowboys, and he completed five of seven passes for 100 yards and a touchdown, a stat line that's slightly skewed by a 49-yard hail mary in the fourth quarter. Over 17 career games, Beathard sports a 1-9 record with a 57.8 completion percentage and 6.9 yards per target. He'll take the field without running back Raheem Mostert (ankle) or wideout Deebo Samuel (hamstring), but George Kittle (foot) has a chance to return this week, according to Josh Dubow of the Associated Press.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Climbs depth chart due to injury

    C.J. Beathard will be the backup to Nick Mullens for at least the next six weeks, as Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) will miss at least that long due to a high-ankle sprain, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Mullens will get first crack at filling in for Garoppolo, starting with Thursday's game against Green Bay. Beathard will wait in the wings should Mullens struggle, but considering Beathard has usurped Mullens as Garoppolo's backup as recently as earlier this season, the window is wide open for the Iowa product to get another shot under center if things start to go south for San Francisco's offense.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Likely reverting to backup role

    C.J. Beathard is expected to be the backup quarterback Sunday versus the Rams with Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) reclaiming starting duties, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.Garoppolo was benched during this past Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, as he performed poorly and the game quickly got out of hand. Beathard entered in his place and completed nine of 18 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. Garoppolo is still dealing with an ankle injury, and that could've played a role in his disappointing outing, but coach Kyle Shanahan has no plans to bench him. Beathard has proven himself as the clear No. 2 quarterback ahead of Nick Mullens, so he'll be the next man up in case things go off the rails again Sunday.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Takes over as starter mid-game

    C.J. Beathard filled in for a struggling Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) in the second half of Sunday's 43-17 loss to Miami. He completed nine of 18 pass attempts for 94 yards and a touchdown.Beathard has had to relieve a different struggling quarterback ahead of him on the depth chart for the second consecutive week. Unlike last week's late comeback attempt against the Eagles, the backup had a more pedestrian outing when given a full half to operate. Garoppolo clearly did not look right early on, and his injured ankle may have had a big part in why he performed so poorly. It would be a surprising turn of events if an official change was made with both players being healthy, so we have to assume the job is still Garoppolo's after one ugly start.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Rises to second on depth chart

    C.J. Beathard will serve as the San Francisco 49ers' backup quarterback in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is slated to return from a two-game absence to reclaim starting duties Week 5, but Beathard showed enough in relief of a struggling Nick Mullens in the 49ers' Week 4 loss to the Eagles to move up a rung on the depth chart. Making his second straight start, Mullens committed three turnovers against Philadelphia before being pulled in the fourth quarter in favor of Beathard, who proceeded to complete 14 of 19 attempts for 138 yards. Now that he's dropped behind Garoppolo and Beathard in the pecking order, Mullens will likely be inactive against the Dolphins.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Takes over mid-game

    C.J. Beathard entered Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Eagles and completed 14 of 19 pass attempts for 138 yards.Sunday's starter (and primary backup) Nick Mullens struggled with turnovers in the second half and was benched for Beathard late in the fourth quarter. The third-string quarterback orchestrated two no-huddle drives that concluded with a Hail-Mary heave that would have clinched the victory had it not fallen incomplete. Beathard entered the contest with a 57 completion percentage and a 12:13 TD:INT for his career, but those stats came back in 2017-2018 when the San Francisco 49ers had a far inferior offensive line and fewer playmakers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will have an important decision to make regarding who starts under center against the Dolphins on Sunday, assuming Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) isn't ready to return from injury.

    49ers' C.J. Beathard: Clear No. 3 option

    C.J. Beathard will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Jets, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.Sunday will mark the second consecutive game for which Beathard will be inactive this season, signalling he's the clear third option on the depth chart. It's unlikely that the Iowa product will make an impact from a fantasy perspective, barring injuries, and Nick Mullens will continue to serve as the team's back up behind Jimmy Garoppolo.

    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.
