Tevin Coleman Fantasy Football News 2020

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) has been activated from IR. That makes him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, although it's still unclear if he'll be ready. We should have a better idea of his Week 8 status by Friday afternoon.

The 49ers placed RB Jeff Wilson on IR with his high-ankle sprain. He's out for at least the next 3 games. RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) is out for at least 2 more games, while RB Tevin Coleman (knee) remains iffy for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks. San Francisco might be down to RBs JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon for that one. Hasty should be owned in pretty much all fantasy leagues at this point.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury reports that 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Patriots. We'll see about the expected return timeline, but this likely makes Wilson a drop in nearly all redraft leagues. RB Tevin Coleman should return soon and faces big opportunity when he does make it back. If Coleman's not ready for Week 8, then rookie JaMycal Hasty figures to see an uptick in work. He logged 9 carries each of the past 2 weeks.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) "isn't likely" to return for this weekend's game against the Patriots, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. San Francisco will also be without RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) for that one, while RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is uncertain. That leaves Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty as the team's healthy RBs.

Niners RB Raheem Mostert sustained a high-ankle sprain in Sunday night's win over the Rams and is headed to IR, according to Grant Cohn of SI.com. That means he'll miss at least 3 games. We'll see beyond that. Jerick McKinnon is the guy we know will be involved in replacing Mostert for Sunday's game at New England. He garnered just 8 touches for 28 total yards against the Rams, though. Jeff Wilson missed Week 6 with a calf injury he suffered during the practice week. That left rookie JaMycal Hasty working in his place against the Rams. Tevin Coleman is eligible to come off IR for Week 7, but we don't yet know whether his sprained knee will be ready. We'll see how this backfield picture develops through the week.

Niners RB Raheem Mostert left Sunday night's game against the Rams with a left ankle injury. The team ruled him out for the rest of the game, which isn't great news for his Week 7 outlook. We'll watch for further updates on his status. If Mostert misses further time, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson would step back to prominence. Tevin Coleman should also be nearing a return from the knee sprain that has kept him from playing since Week 2.

The 49ers have placed RB Tevin Coleman on IR for his knee injury. We’d bet on it being a short-term stay, but the move sidelines Coleman for at least the next 3 games. San Francisco promoted undrafted rookie RB Ja’Mycal Hasty from the practice squad to fill his roster spot. Hasty averaged 5.2 yards per carry career at Baylor and caught 76 passes over his final 3 seasons there. He’s worth keeping an eye on in case of another 49ers RB injury — and a potential dynasty stash

49ers RB Tevin Coleman is expected to miss "about 4 weeks" with his sprained knee, HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday. Coleman wasn't doing much before going down and is droppable in standard-sized fantasy leagues. With RB Raheem Mostert (knee) also expected to miss Week 3, it'll be Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson in the backfield vs. the Giants.

The 49ers expect RB Tevin Coleman to miss "multiple weeks" with the knee injury he suffered late in Sunday's win over the Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That leaves San Francisco expecting to miss its top 2 RBs for Sunday's visit to the Giants. Jeff Wilson and Jerick McKinnon will lead the backfield work and are both worth pursuing -- at appropriate levels -- on waiver wires this week.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan said RB Tevin Coleman also left Sunday's win over the Jets with a knee injury, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Coleman's last touch came in the 2nd half of the 4th quarter. The 49ers had 1 more possession and ran Jeff Wilson. We haven't seen anything else about Coleman's injury. We'll see what the next few days reveal. Wilson and Jerick McKinnon would obviously gain big touch upside if both Coleman and Raheem Mostert miss Week 3.

Update: Shanahan confirmed this injury in his Monday press conference and says they're awaiting MRI results.

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.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. There was concern that he’d be held out with his sickle-cell trait considering the poor air quality in Santa Clara. Coleman might still be limited today and is a risky fantasy play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the 49ers aren't sure if RB Tevin Coleman will play against the Cardinals today. Coleman has a sickle-cell trait, and the air quality in Santa Clara will be poor today due to the surrounding wild fires. "Decision belongs to Coleman," Schefter adds. Niners-Cardinals doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET. So unless you have a viable late-game alternative, Coleman should be on your bench. He might be limited even if he ends up active. Coleman's absence would mean more work for RBs Raheem Mostert 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 (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was knocked out of the NFC Championship with a dislocated shoulder but seemingly has a shot to play in Sunday's Super Bowl. We'll update his status again tomorrow.
