2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Few running backs had more hype with less career production than Jerick McKinnon had heading into the 2018 fantasy season. McKinnon had snuck into the RB1 range in drafts after free agency saw him make the move from Minnesota to San Francisco, where he joined a weak depth chart in an offense quarterbacked by a young budding star named Jimmy Garoppolo and coached by one of the best offensive minds in the game, Kyle Shanahan.

And then came the injury. McKinnon tore his ACL in practice prior to ever getting on the field for a regular season snap, ending his season before it even began.

While he'll have a full calendar year to recover before the 2019 season begins, the situation in the San Francisco backfield has now changed fairly substantially. The team added veteran Tevin Coleman, whose connection with Shanahan makes him an immediate favorite to be the starter, but perhaps the most concerning thing for McKinnon is actually Matt Breida, who broke out in his second season after being shoved into the starting role after McKinnon's injury. Breida, who took over as the lead back at Georgia Southern when McKinnon went to the NFL, is one of the few backs in the league who can match McKinnon's combination of raw size/speed/strength. This has typically been McKinnon's edge in most backfields, as he's been able to get on the field in certain situations just due to his athletic prowess. With someone like Breida on the roster, who has now proven himself in this very offense, he will now likely have to compete for even those snaps.

McKinnon is being drafted outside the top 40 at the position so he doesn't cost much, but it's tough to envision a scenario wherein he becomes a bell cow in San Francisco without numerous injuries to other players in the backfield. Given his own injury history and recent reports of a setback with his knee, makes McKinnon a lower-upside play than most probably realize.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jerick Mckinnon out two weeks
Dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired knee
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 8, 3:10 pm

San Francisco
#49ers RB Jerick McKinnon dealing with soreness in his knee after practicing past two days. He did not participate today. Coach Kyle Shanahan said McKinnon is getting a platelet rich plasma injection and will miss next two weeks before getting back in mix. (Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers backfield is starting to look at little clearer for the first part of the season. It appears Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida should handle the bulk of the work out of the backfield beginning Week 1 while McKinnon continues to rehab and work back from his ACL injury that occurred almost a year ago.

Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon or Matt Breida fighting for two spots
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 27, 7:20 pm

San Francisco
Tevin Coleman is the odds-on favorite to be the closest thing the 49ers have to a lead back. He has history in Kyle Shanahan’s system, and he was the only player among Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert to practice this offseason. Mostert will almost certainly be one of the three running backs in uniform because he is one of the 49ers’ best special-teams players. That means one of the backs - McKinnon, Coleman or Breida - will not suit up for regular-season games. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners have seemingly rendered this competition fait accompli in favor of Coleman given his familiarity in Shanahan's offense. How quickly most have forgotten McKinnon is still one of the highest-paid backs in the league and how well Breida performed last season. Coleman may very well end up as the carry leader in this backfield when all is said and done, but it would be foolish for anyone to believe he is a prohibitive favorite to do so.
