Tevin Coleman Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jets RB Michael Carter is listed 4th (alongside Josh Adams) on the Week 1 depth chart. It's Tevin Coleman 1st, La'Mical Perine 2nd and Ty Johnson 3rd. We never fully buy into these depth charts -- but it's notable after Carter appeared to at least be behind Coleman this preseason. The rookie can't be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups. If you need to dabble in this backfield, Coleman is your best bet.

The Jets rested starters Friday night in their preseason finale vs. Philadelphia. That meant no action for RB Tevin Coleman. Michael Carter and Ty Johnson played, however, and Johnson took the field 1st. Carter did mix in for the 1st drive but saw just 1 carry vs. 5 for Johnson. The work evened out between them by halftime: 8 carries, 1 target for Johnson; 7 carries, 1 target for Carter. The rookie then sat out the 2nd half, while Johnson remained heavily involved. That last point could be a positive for Carter. But he's clearly opening the year at least behind Coleman. Keep that in mind as you decide where to draft any Jets RBs over the next couple of weeks.

Jets beat writer Connor Hughes of The Athletic sees the team’s backfield as a “3-man rotation.” “Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter will all see their share of snaps in the regular season,” Hughes writes, “with La’Mical Perine working in as the goal-line, short-yardage back.” It’s tough to buy Perine as a factor, but a Jets RB rotation has largely been the theme all summer. Look for the situation to remain fluid throughout the year.

Jets RB Michael Carter played 0 snaps with QB Zach Wilson and the 1st-team offense in Saturday's preseason game vs. the Packers. RB Tevin Coleman got the start and played 10 of 19 snaps with Wilson. RB Ty Johnson played the other 9. We'll see if Carter gets any run with the starters in the final exhibition. But as of now, he's not looking like a guy we'll be able to use in fantasy lineups to start the season.

Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com projects RB Ty Johnson as a cut in his admittedly "far too early" 53-player roster projection. "[Tevin] Coleman will likely get the majority of the snaps, but there will be plenty of opportunities for [Michael] Carter and another young back," Vasquez writes. "[Josh] Adams, [La'Mical] Perine and Johnson will battle for the final two spots at this position." We're not particularly excited about any player in what figures to line up as a committee but will be tracking the competition through summer.

The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "might not be long before [Jets RB Michael] Carter starts to see the lion’s share of reps." The rookie has had a "promising" spring and early summer, according to Hughes, and looks like the most explosive and best receiver of the Jets' RBs. Hughes does add that the Jets "prefer a running-back-by-committee approach, so guys like Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and/or La'Mical Perine will be involved. But Carter is the most exciting of the group and has a chance to emerge as a weekly fantasy starter this year.

The Jets have selected RB Michael Carter with the 2nd pick of Round 4 in the 2021 NFL Draft. As a true freshman, Carter led the Tar Heels in yards per carry (5.8) and TDs (8). He finished his 4-year career with 3,403 rushing yards, playing the past 2 in a near-even timeshare with Javonte Williams. At only 5’8 and 201 pounds, Carter doesn’t have workhorse potential. But he projects as a strong receiver (82 career catches) with excellent elusiveness and agility in all facets. A role with ~15 touches per game could certainly put him in the future RB2 discussion. Landing with the Jets presents obvious opportunity. The biggest challenges already on the roster look like Tevin Coleman and La'Mical Perine.

The Jets have agreed to a 1-year deal with RB Tevin Coleman. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports is worth a mere $2 million. That certainly doesn't set Coleman up as a favorite to control the backfield. He does, however, join new OC Mike LaFleur, who spent the past 4 seasons on the 49ers staff. Coleman also joins a corps that currently only includes La'Mical Perine, Ty Johnson, Josh Adams and Pete Guerriero. Heading into just his age-28 season, Coleman certainly has a shot to play a big role in the Jets' backfield plans. We'll see what else the team adds this offseason, though.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers RB Raheem Mostert suffered another high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is "likely" done for the season. That leaves Jeff Wilson Jr. likely to lead the Week 16 backfield, assuming his own ankle issue doesn't get in the way. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon sit behind Wilson on the depth chart.

Update: Tom Pelissero reports that the team is placing Mostert on IR.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson appeared to injure his right hamstring late in the loss to Dallas. We’ll update his status when we learn more. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon are left as San Francisco’s healthy RBs.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any details on the ankle injury, but he's clearly in some danger of missing this weekend's game vs. Dallas. Mostert's absence would presumably make Jeff Wilson San Francisco's lead back, with Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon candidates for bigger roles.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) isn't listed on the Week 13 injury report. It looks like he's set to return for Monday night's game vs. the Bills -- his 1st action since Week 8. Coleman can't be trusted in fantasy lineups this week, but he does add a bit of risk to RB Raheem Mostert's profile. San Francisco will have Coleman, Mostert, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson available vs. Buffalo.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) will be activated for Week 12 but listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. The fact that they're being placed on the active roster makes us think they'll play, but we'll look for further updates. RB Tevin Coleman (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He has a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Rams, along with RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle). San Francisco's backfield is murky as of now. Hopefully it clears up by Sunday.

The 49ers have designated RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) to return from IR. That makes each player eligible to practice this week. We'll see whether either or both are ready to play. The Niners have 3 weeks to decide whether to activate them. HC Kyle Shanahan said before the Week 11 bye that he hoped to get Mostert back onto the field for Week 12. We'll be interested in Mostert as a potential backfield leader if he's ready to go. Wilson would likely be more of a reserve in San Francisco's crowded backfield. Tevin Coleman (knee) -- who didn't land on IR -- will also bear watching through the practice week.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty broke his collarbone in Sunday's loss to the Saints, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Hasty will be out for a while and can be dropped from fantasy rosters. Shanny said that he thinks RBs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman will be back after the Week 11 bye. Both of those guys are worth stashing if they're available in your league.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Saints. RBs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson remain on IR, leaving the backfield to Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal. McKinnon served as the clear lead back last time out, out-touching Hasty 15 to 6.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that RB Tevin Coleman (knee) won't play against the Packers on Thursday night. It's unclear how much time Coleman will miss with this latest knee injury. San Francisco is down to RBs JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon vs. Green Bay's league-worst RB defense.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman re-injured his knee in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He's officially questionable to return. Rookie JaMycal Hasty has been operating as San Francisco's lead back with Coleman out.

Update: The 49ers have ruled Coleman out for the game.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) is officially active for today’s game against the Seahawks. We’re completely guessing how snaps and touches will be divvied between Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty. But our guess is that Coleman leads the way in carries.
