Jets RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and looks unlikely to play vs. the Saints this weekend. The Jets still figure to roll with a 3-man committee with Ty Johnson, Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine. It's a backfield to avoid vs. the Saints' top-ranked RB defense.
The Athletic's Matt Barrows suggests that 49ers RB Tevin Coleman could help replace RB Elijah Mitchell going forward. Coleman carried 12 times across Weeks 5 and 6 but has been on the practice squad since. We'll see if he's elevated ahead of Week 13 -- and then who's active behind RB Christian McCaffrey for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. Coleman, Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price are all worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues.
The 49ers released RB Tevin Coleman. He's the odd man out with RB Christian McCaffrey's arrival. RBs Jeff Wilson, Ty Davis-Price and Jordan Mason are behind McCaffrey, with RB Elijah Mitchell on IR.
49ers RB Tevin Coleman was promoted from the practice squad and is active for tonight's game vs. the Rams. "Expect him, Jeff Wilson and Deebo Samuel to get carries today," The Athletic's Matt Barrows tweeted. Wilson remains the best RB play in this game, but Coleman is an interesting flier in 1-game DFS contests.
The 49ers signed RB Tevin Coleman to the practice squad. Coleman has 4 years of experience in HC Kyle Shananah's offense and averaged a decent 4.2 yards per carry for the lowly Jets last year. There's a chance Coleman works his way into some playing time in this banged-up San Francisco backfield, but we'd only considering adding him right now in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
The Jets are releasing veteran RB Tevin Coleman. You might have forgotten he was still on the team, with all backfield talk focusing on Breece Hall and Michael Carter, but Coleman ranked 2nd on the team last year in both total carries and carries per game.
