2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Third-year running back Matt Breida was being drafted as the third 49ers running back off the board in fantasy drafts, but he's the only player on the team who's actually produced in this offense and recent news of Jerick McKinnon suffereing a setback in his ACL recovery should have Breida's ADP on the rise.

Breida was unexpectedly pushed into a role with significant playing time after an ACL injury cost Jerick McKinnon his entire 2018 season. The 49ers signed veteran Alfred Morris, who predictably did practically nothing aside from fall forward for three yards when he got carries, but it was Breida who ended up making a splash. Breida rushed for 814 yards on an impressive 5.3 yards per attempt, while also adding 261 yards in the receiving game on 31 catches. Those numbers would've likely been even better if Breida hadn't suffered numerous nagging injuries of his own, forcing him to play banged up in an offense that lacked firepower to begin with. His five touchdowns were also a disappointment, although that was mostly due to overall lack of red zone efficiency from the 49ers offense, particularly in the passing game.

If he can stay healthy, there's an outside chance that Breida could actually lead this backfield in touches. Coleman is on a new team and wasn't particularly effective in a much better Atlanta offense in 2018, so he has his own concerns. It won't likely happen early in the season, but Breida could very well end up being the best value pick out of this entire backfield.

We've seen situations like this before in backfields like New England, where there are a lot of talented players but no one player who necessarily sticks out as being the do-it-all "bell cow." That often leads to a frustrating fantasy scenario where the top picks end up being a disappointment and the late-round backs end up being a value. Breida is being selected very late or even being left undrafted in many leagues, so getting him as a late-round dart throw who could end up giving you solid RB2 numbers down the stretch seems like a great option.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Matt Breida expected to miss Week 13
Should return in Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 1, 8:40 am

San Francisco
Update on RB Matt Breida: 49ers want a fully healthy Breida for New Orleans next week, so he will be out today vs Ravens. One more week for Breida. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Schefter had reported earlier in the morning that Breida was going to play but apparently the 49ers had a change of heart. With Breida out, Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will handle the bulk of the running back duties against the Ravens. Both are Flex plays in a rainy environment.


Injury Kittle, Deebo non-contact at Thursday's practice
Long injury list for 49ers
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 21, 3:40 pm

San Francisco
Baby steps: George Kittle is back at practice today. He’s wearing a blue jersey that signals he’s not to have any contact. Deebo Samuel (shoulder) also practicing in a blue jersey. Emmanuel Sanders is not practicing, but he’s looking far more spry in his rehab than he did last week. Matt Breida (ankle), Dee Ford (hamstring) working out on a side field. Robbie Gould was not practing. (Matt Barrows on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers are beat up at the receiving positions and it remains to be seen who will suit up on Sunday night against the Packers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier in the week that Kittle, Sanders, Samuel and Breida would all "come down to the wire."


Injury Emmanuel Sanders expected to play
Rib injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 17, 7:17 am

San Francisco
49ers’ WR Emmanuel Sanders, listed as questionable for today with a rib injury, will play Sunday vs. Cardinals, per source. 49ers’ RB Matt Breida, listed as doubtful for today with an ankle injury, will not play vs. Cardinals, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is likely a pain tolerance issue for Sanders making him a risky play for fantasy owners. With George Kittle out and Sanders ailing, this is a decent spot against Arizona for Deebo Samuel to lead the team in the WR production.


Injury Breida, Mostert expected to play Thursday night
Three-headed backfield
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 31, 3:07 pm

San Francisco
More 49ers' injury updates: RB Raheem Mostert, listed as questionable for tonight with a knee injury, will play vs. Cardinals. OT Joe Staley, doubtful with a fibula injury, will not. 49ers RB Matt Breida, who’s listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is playing tonight vs. the Cardinals, per source. Felt good this AM so good to go. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tevin Coleman will have his usual support meaning the 49ers will be in RBBC mode tonight against the Cardinals although given injuries, Coleman is on the RB2 radar while Breida is more of a Flex option.


Injury Tevin Coleman back at work
Suffered high-ankle sprain in Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 3, 7:35 pm

San Francisco
RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited at practice today. He has been out since Week 1 with his injury. Today was his first day back at practice. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: There's no word as to whether or not he will play in Week 5, but the odds are against it. Still, it puts him on track to return in Week 6. When he does return, he will almost certainly split work with Matt Breida while Raheem Mostert mixes in on occasion. If he gets goal-line work as expected, he'll be well worth considering as a flex option in HC Kyle Shanahan's fantasy-friendly running back scheme.
