Raheem Mostert Fantasy Football News 2020

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.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is not expected to play against the Ravens today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So Raheem Mostert will get another game as the #2 RB behind Tevin Coleman. Mostert has tallied 6 carries and 3 targets in back-to-back games, making him just a RB3 flier in fantasy lineups.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Breida is expected to play. We'll see who's right when the 'Niners release their inactives around 11:30 am TE.

6:11pm EST 11/24/19

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Packers. With Breida out last week, RB Tevin Coleman handled 12 carries and 4 targets to Raheem Mostert’s 6 carries and 3 targets. Expect a similar split tonight.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will again form the 1-2 punch in San Francisco’s backfield. Coleman is the better fantasy option because of his role near the goal line.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's looking like Raheem Mostert will again serve as San Francisco's #2 RB against the Packers on Sunday night.

2:11pm EST 11/17/19

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. Raheem Mostert will serve as the #2 RB and projects for 10-15 touches.

The 49ers list RB Matt Breida (ankle) as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He’s not going to play. That moves RB Raheem Mostert up to #2 on the depth chart and puts him in the RB3 mix.

49ers RB Matt Breida is expected to miss "a week or 2" with his latest ankle injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'll make Raheem Mostert San Francisco's #2 RB for at least this weekend's game against the Cardinals. Mostert projects for 8 to 12 carries, putting him on the RB3 map.

49ers RB Matt Breida "may miss some time" with the ankle injury he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Breida is getting a 2nd opinion on the injury. We'll keep an eye on this, but RB Raheem Mostert is worth adding in most fantasy leagues and will be in the RB3 mix if Breida misses this weekend's game against the Cardinals. In the 2 games RB Tevin Coleman missed earlier this season, Mostert totaled 25 carries for 162 yards, plus 3 catches for 68 yards and a score.

49ers RB Matt Breida was knocked out in the 2nd half of Monday night's game against the Seahawks with an ankle injury. Breida seems to always be getting nicked up but has appeared in all 9 games so far this season. We'll track his status throughout the week. If Breida misses Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Raheem Mostert would step in as San Francisco's #2 RB.

49ers RBs Matt Breida (ankle) and Raheem Mostert (knee) are active for tonight’s game against the Cardinals. Breida had been operating as the 1B to Tevin Coleman’s 1A, but it’s unclear how healthy he is right now. It leaves him as a risk/reward RB3. Mostert would be a desperation fantasy play with Breida active.

49ers RBs Matt Breida (ankle) and Raheem Mostert (knee) are listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. Both guys got in limited practices on Wednesday. Tevin Coleman will lead this backfield vs. Arizona, but who plays behind him is completely up in the air right now. (Jeff Wilson is the other healthy RB besides Coleman.) We'll sort it out when we get inactives around 7 pm ET tomorrow night.

49ers RBs Matt Breida (ankle) and Raheem Mostert (quad) both missed practice on Tuesday. “If we had to go today, it wouldn’t be good,” HC Kyle Shanahan said. “But we remain optimistic." We'll see if either guy can get on the practice field tomorrow. If they can't play against the Cardinals on Thursday night, it'll be Jeff Wilson backing up Tevin Coleman.

Niners RB Tevin Coleman is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Browns. HC Kyle Shanahan is optimistic that Coleman’s ankle will allow him to play. The Monday night kick, of course, makes it tough to wait for Coleman in fantasy. The potential for Coleman to return does hurt the outlook for Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a shot to return for Monday night's game vs. the Browns after he went down with a high-ankle sprain back in Week 1. It's unclear how San Francisco will divvy carries between Coleman, Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson.
