Matt Breida tonight set career highs in PPR fantasy points (28.2), total touchdowns (2) and total touches (20).

49ers QB Nick Mullens got his first taste of adversity as a starter, throwing an interception to set up the Giants' lone touchdown of the first half. But he bounced back and led a pair scoring drive right after to give the Niners a 13-10 halftime lead. Mullens finished the first two quarters 12-of-18 for 112 yards and a passer rating of 60.4. The Niners look capable of slowing the Giants down enough on defense to win this game but can't afford any more costly turnovers to make it easy on them if they're going to get it done.
