49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed from the Combine on Wednesday that Jerick McKinnon remains his lead back. Matt Breida impressed with 5.3 yards per carry and 9.7 yards per catch last year, despite battling injuries. But the 'Niners paid McKinnon $18 million guaranteed last offseason and owe him another $3.7 million this year. Shanahan said that McKinnon's recovery from last September's torn ACL is "on track." He remains mostly unproven as a lead back, but his athleticism and an improving San Francisco offense give him intriguing upside. McKinnon's ADP is sitting in the early 5th round as the 24th RB off the board in February FFPC drafts.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is out for Sunday's finale against the Rams. He battled through a bum ankle for most of the season, making his 5.6 yards per carry even more impressive. Breida also averaged 9.8 yards on 22 catches. He has a shot to play a significant role in 2019, even with the return of RB Jerick McKinnon. Jeff Wilson will close out this season as San Francisco's lead back and be in the RB2 mix vs. the Rams.
49ers RB Matt Breida aggravated his ankle injury again in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bears. He's officially questionable to return. RB Jeff Wilson will take over as long as Breida is out.
Update: Breida has been ruled out.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Bears on Sunday despite re-injuring that bum ankle last week. Between the ankle and Chicago’s top-ranked RB defense, Breida is just a RB3 for Week 16.

49ers RB Matt Breida aggravated his ankle injury in OT of Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He looked good before that, racking up 50 yards on 17 carries and 46 more on 5 catches. This ankle has been bothering Breida seemingly all season, though. We'll see if he's able to play against the Bears next weekend. If not, the 'Niners will turn back to RB Jeff Wilson.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Seahawks. It’s unclear exactly how the backfield touches will be divvied between he and Jeff Wilson. Breida is the better fantasy bet among the 2, but consider him a risk/reward RB3.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play against the Seahawks today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Breida has been banged up for most of the season and was limited in practice all week. So don't expect him to be at 100% today. It's also possible that Breida cedes more work to RB Jeff Wilson. If picking between the 2, Breida is the better fantasy bet. But this is a backfield to try to avoid.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan on Monday ruled out RB Matt Breida (ankle) for this weekend's game against the Broncos. The early rule-out suggests Breida might be looking at a multi-game absence -- especially since the 'Niners have nothing to play for. Breida's absence on Sunday leaves Jeff Wilson as San Francisco's lead back. He popped this past week, totaling 134 yards on 23 catches. The undrafted rookie hails from North Texas, goes 6'0 and 194 pounds and owns a 21st percentile SPARQ score. So he's not an exciting prospect. But volume will put him in the RB3 mix for Week 14.
49ers RB Matt Breida aggravated his lingering ankle injury during pregame warmups today, HC Kyle Shahanan said. Breida ended up playing against Seattle but was out-touched 23 to 8 by RB Jeffery Wilson. We’ll see what Breida is able to do in practice this week before deciding whether he’s a viable Week 14 fantasy play. Wilson is worth stashing in the meantime.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Raiders. San Francisco should lean on the run in this one with Nick Mullens under center. But Breida remains at less than 100% and carries extra risk tonight just 4 days removed from his last game.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He played just 5 snaps last week and is expected to be limited today. Breida isn’t a recommended fantasy starter. Raheem Mostert is the best bet in San Francisco’s backfield.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play against the Cardinals later today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but "won't be 100%." Breida lasted just 5 snaps last week and only got in 1 practice this week. He's a high-risk fantasy play today. We'd actually lean toward Raheem Mostert if you're considering a Niners RB.
Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that Breida is expected to "be limited." It's tough to know just how much of a touch share he'll be in for after playing just 5 snaps in last week's game.
49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday.
