Jacoby Brissett Inactive Versus 49ers

Sunday, December 31, 11:06 AM

Washington Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 17 versus the San Francisco 49ers. He was initially expected to make his first start of the season this Sunday, but a hamstring injury that initially rendered him questionable will ultimately keep him sidelined against the NFC's top team. Being inactive will make Brissett the team's emergency No. 3 quarterback, meaning he could enter the game if both Sam Howell and Jake Fromm are injured. Howell, of course, will draw his 16th start of the season. He has produced mixed results this year but could benefit from a pass-heavy attack against a 49ers secondary that has allowed 241.1 passing yards and 1.1 passing touchdowns per game. Fantasy managers should view Howell as a low-end QB2 option this week.

Nick Mullens Replacing Joshua Dobbs As Vikings Starting Quarterback

Tuesday, December 12, 6:06 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are making a change at quarterback, with Nick Mullens replacing Joshua Dobbs under center for the Week 15 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, according to sources. Mullens replaced the struggling Dobbs in the fourth quarter of Week 14's 3-0 win over the Las Vegas Raiders and has 17 career NFL starts under his belt. He also knows the Vikings system and is fully healthy after being on Injured Reserve in October. The 28-year-old went 9-for-13 for 83 yards and led the Vikings on their only scoring drive of the game on Sunday. Mullens has experience, but Saturday will be his first start since 2021 and he isn't going to have much fantasy upside at all against Cincinnati on the road. At best, he'll be a low-end streamer in two-QB formats in Week 15.
