Week 8 Free Agent Focus

By DS Staff 9:10pm EDT 10/25/20

Tevin Coleman, RB, 49ers

Blind-bid recommendation: 30-50%

We don't know yet whether Coleman will be ready for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. HC Kyle Shanahn said Saturday that Coleman has an "outside chance" of returning from his knee sprain in Week 8. So he's probably not your best option if you're seeking immediate help.

But the past 2 weeks have seen the 49ers place Raheem Mostert on IR and then lose Jeff Wilson Jr. to a high-ankle sprain. That leaves undrafted rookie JaMycal Hasty as the apparent backfield leader until Coleman returns. Jerick McKinnon followed an 8-touch Week 6 by trailing Kyle Juszczyk in touches against New England.

Unless Hasty gets the backfield to himself in Week 8 and wows, this looks like a situation Coleman should lead after he returns. He's currently available in 80% of ESPN leagues. Stash Coleman where you can.
