Raheem Mostert Fantasy Football News 2020

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That doesn't bode well for his chances to playing against the Eagles on Sunday night. With Mostert (and Tevin Coleman) out last week, Jerick McKinnon handled 14 carries and 4 targets to Jeff Wilson's 12 carries and 3 targets.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan conceded Monday that RB Raheem Mostert (knee) "likely won't play" vs. the Giants this weekend. Mostert is reportedly dealing with a minor MCL sprain, so this shouldn't be a long-term absence. But it's looking like the 'Niners will be down to RBs Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson for at least Week 3. Both guys are worth scooping off waiver wires.

The 49ers believe RB Raheem Mostert is dealing with a "mild sprain of the MCL," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's relatively good news. The severity of the sprain will determine how long Mostert is sidelined. We should learn more tomorrow.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets and is done for the day. That leaves San Francisco with RBs Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon.

The Athletic's Matt Barrows expects RB Tevin Coleman to remain the 49ers starter this season. "[HC] Kyle Shanahan and [RBs coach] Bobby Turner liked starting games with Coleman because he’s a little bigger and more physical runner than the others," Barrows writes. "So my guess is that the arrangement will be the same as last season: Coleman starts, with Turner then using his feel for who’s hot that day dictating the snap loads for the rest of the game." Who gets the 1st snap in San Francisco's backfield is hardly relevant. But the takeaway here is that this remains a committee attack with Coleman, Raheem Mostert and potentially Jerick McKinnon. We're shying away from Mostert at his RB26 ADP. Coleman is a better value at RB38.

The 49ers and RB Raheem Mostert have agreed to a restructured contract. No additional years were tacked on to the deal, but Mostert reportedly has a shot to double his old salary via incentives. He had requested a trade back earlier this month but will now be back in San Francisco this season. Mostert heads to training camp as the favorite for lead duties in this backfield -- although Tevin Coleman, and potentially Jerick McKinnon, will also be involved.

RB Raheem Mostert has asked the 49ers to trade him, according to his agent. Brett Tessler tweeted that he and his client have requested a trade "after months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert's contract." This will be an interesting situation to watch in a backfield that has already sent Matt Breida to Miami. For now, we'd continue drafting Mostert at the same level. A trade shouldn't hurt his value, since it would presumably involve a team seeking to leverage his talent. Tevin Coleman, meanwhile, gets at least a slight upside boost on the chance that Mostert does get moved. Coleman's RB4-level ADP already makes him a solid value. Jerick McKinnon also remains under contract with the 49ers and would gain opportunity upside if Mostert moves.

The 49ers have played a 2nd-round tender on RB Matt Breida and restructured RB Jerick McKinnon's contract. It looks like both guys will be back in the fold for 2020. RBs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman remain better fantasy bets at this point, but this could once again be a frustrating Shanahan backfield.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) isn't listed on the final Super Bowl injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. Raheem Mostert figures to get the 1st crack at lead duties after his massive NFC Championship, but this has been a hot-hand backfield for most of the season.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman was knocked out in the 1st quarter of Sunday' NFC Championship with a shoulder injury. We don't have any further details at this point, but HC Kyle Shanahan believes Coleman has a shot to be ready for the Super Bowl. "I’m hoping he’ll be all right next week," Shanny said. "I don’t totally know yet. I know he’s not ruled out or anything. I think there will be a good chance (for him to go)." We won't get any official practice updates from the 'Niners until next week. The backfield has been the ultimate hot-hand situation this postseason, with Coleman controlling in the Divisional Round and Raheem Mostert exploding for a 29-220-4 rushing line in the win over the Packers.

Update: Shanahan said Monday afternoon that Coleman dislocated his shoulder and reiterated that Coleman has a chance to play in the Super Bowl.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert said he battled calf cramps in Saturday's Divisional Round game after being sick during the week. That might explain Tevin Coleman operating as San Francisco's lead back in the win over the Vikings -- although it seemed like Coleman was a big part of the game plan right from the get-go. He'll be the best fantasy bet in this backfield in the NFC Championship.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return to the backfield alongside Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert for Sunday’s game against the Saints. It’s anyone’s guess as to how touches will be divvied between those 3, leaving them all as risk/reward RB3 or flex plays.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) put in a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll return for this weekend's showdown with the Saints. How the 'Niners will divvy carries between Breida, Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert is anyone's guess. It makes all 3 guys risk/reward RB3 plays.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he's "optimistic" about RB Matt Breida's chances of returning for this weekend's game against the Saints. Raheem Mostert took control of San Francisco's backfield in yesterday's loss to the Ravens, out-carrying Tevin Coleman 19 to 5. But with Breida back in this mix, this will be a tough situation to handicap for Week 14.

11:12am EST 12/1/19

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. He’s expected back for Week 14. Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will continue to operate as San Francisco’s top 2 backs today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has updated his original report and now says 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) won't play against the Ravens today. "49ers want a fully healthy Breida for New Orleans next week," Schefter adds. So fantasy owners should get Breida back for Week 14. Raheem Mostert will again serve as San Francisco's #2 RB today.
