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 Tevin Coleman expected to miss time, ankle injury
MRI on Monday
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 9, 1:10 pm

San Francisco
The 49ers are going to be without one of their offseason additions as Tevin Coleman is expected to miss time with an ankle sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports. Coleman missed the second half of Sunday's 31-17 win over the Buccaneers and is scheduled to undergo tests Monday to figure out the severity of the ankle sprain. (SI.com)

FFToday's Take: This sounds like Coleman suffered a high ankle sprain but we won't know for sure until after the MRI. In the meantime, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert should see the bulk of work in the 49ers backfield with Jeff Wilson likely being called up from the practice squad.


Injury Jerick Mckinnon out two weeks
Dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired knee

#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.


Niners likely to sit a high-profile RB on game day
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.
