It's Week 10 and the fantasy playoffs are right around the corner. It is imperative to make sure those lineups are perfect, every win is crucial to make those playoffs. The 49ers play on Monday and honestly, I hate playing on Monday because you have no time to make any changes if something happens. But it happens, so which players should you still have in your lineup for Monday Night Football?
Nick Mullens is getting his second start, and if he plays as well as he did against the Raiders you will be happy, eighth fantasy quarterback on the week, but should you start him? I personally would like to see another game out of Mullens before I say plug him in. He played against a team that has virtually given up on this season. Let's see Mullens against someone else. SIT: Nick Mullens
The Wide Receivers
The matchup against the Raiders should have been a good one for Marquise Goodwin but it was Pierre Garçon who benefited the most. The wide receivers for the 49ers have been up and down, mostly down. I'm okay with starting Goodwin, but I would temper expectations. I'm not sure if Garçon will be Mullens’ guy from here on out, but I doubt he is on very many rosters, (25% in Yahoo) and I wouldn't be starting him. START: Marquise Goodwin, temper expectations, SIT: Everyone Else
Matt Breida, the Wolverine, managed to play the entire game without getting injured. He was losing touches to Mostert, who unfortunately broke his arm against the Raiders. Fortunately for Breida owners I think he'll get some of those touches back and is worth starting. I wouldn't tell you to start him if I wasn't willing myself, and he's in my starting lineup. START: Matt Breida
I'm not going to go on about George Kittle because you've seen Kittle this season.
You've seen the usage and the volume. Kittle is an auto-start. START: George Kittle
I believe the 49ers defense is a decent streaming option; I have picked them up in multiple leagues for this week. The Giants have given up 31 sacks in the first nine weeks, which is third in the NFL. Their offense is averaging less than 19 points a game this season. The 49ers have a startable defense this week.
