RB Matt Breida - McKinnon injured, fire up your Breidas

I'd take the 1.12 in a second for him. I love the player but he's just an emergency start on my roster. I'd like to moan about Shanahan and his RBBC but the team is doing great like this and see no reason for them to change it, hence only 83yd TD runs are going to boost his scoring.

Agree with this.  On a different team in a different situation, he would carry more value, but what they are doing is not broken and is in no need of fixing.  When Coleman was down, Wilson was stealing points.  Mostert looks great at times too.  I cant bring myself to put him in over Freeman, Gurley, or Mixon, all of whom are complete and utter disappointments so far.  Too much risk of a 7 carry for 20 yard, 2 catch for 12 yard day - although those guys listed above carry a similar floor, so sadly it does remain tempting.

Breida averages over 14 touches per game with his receptions rising every game. With the added benefit of having the speed to house one every time he touches the ball.

Matt Breida rushed 13 times for 36 yards in the 49ers' Week 6 win over the Rams.

He added four catches for 27 yards on four targets. Breida received five fewer carries than Tevin Coleman (18-45-1), but neither back had a whole lot of success on the ground from an efficiency standpoint. Breida and Coleman will both be strong RB2 options next week against the Redskins.

not even sure why i own this guy.  had 2 RBs on bye this week and still started Chris Thompson over him (though I suppose I wouldn't have without that epically insane matchup vs. MIA) because I just can't trust the Shanahanigans.  I guess I'll keep him just in case there is another injury, but man.

What Shanahanigans?  The situation seems pretty well defined.  Both Breida and Coleman are getting double-digit touches.  Breida more between the 20s, Coleman more RZ/GL.

Wilson was the guy mucking everything up, but so long as he's inactive I think the script is clear.

Both Freeman and Coleman were playable when Shanahan was in ATL, feels similar here.

Really?  The 11th or 12th pick in next years draft is somehow going to be worth more than Matt Breida in dynasty?  Have you seen this kid play?

Yeah.  Brieda’s touches are capped.  He’s explosive but low upside due to limited touches.  I’d much rather gamble on 11-12 rookie pick.

It's too bad this guy isn't playing on a team that uses a bellcow approach to RB.

He needed the time to build up his endurance and strength. He is going to get his shot at main-back/primary.

It's like you've never seen a Shanahan running game in action. I love watching Breida--but he could turn into nothing at any moment. That's why his value lags behind how he looks. Never mind that even when there's injuries he doesn't really fill a bellcow role because everyone in that running game looks good and can produce.

This. We all love the kid and see the talent but his situation was never going to get better than week 1 this season with Coleman and McKinnon out and he was still in a brutal timeshare with future foot locker employees and without the goal line carries.

Pretty interesting "From the Gut" article today. Took a deep dive on the topic of starting both Breida and Coleman. Definitely got me thinking about it.

Matt Breida had eight carries for 35 yards in Week 7 against the Redskins.

Breida missed a good portion of the second half getting evaluated for a concussion. He eventually returned but ended up with just nine touches. Breida started and played in a near even timeshare with Tevin Coleman before exiting. He'll be a FLEX play for Week 8 against the Panthers.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Matt Breida (ankle) will be active for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

Per Fowler, Breida "felt good this AM so good to go." A true terminator, Breida is always on the injury report but almost never sits. His presence at less than 100 percent on a short week makes the 49ers' backfield more difficult to forecast, though Tevin Coleman remains a high-end RB2. With Raheem Mostert (knee) highly questionable, Jeff Wilson maintains desperation FLEX appeal. For his part, Breida is a high-risk, moderate-reward FLEX.

Just picked him up off waivers today. He'll be in my lineup with injuries and byes. Vs. a bad defense, maybe he'll break a long one before he gets hurt again.

This is my hope as well. This week, it was either him or Shady vs Vikings, so here we go.

Matt Breida rushed 15 times for 78 yards in the 49ers' Week 9 win over the Cardinals, adding two receptions for 14 additional yards.

Supposedly highly questionable with an ankle injury, Breida instead led the 49ers' backfield committee, out-touching Tevin Coleman 17-15 and out-gaining him 92-36. Breida was the far more explosive player this evening, ripping chunk gains and appearing deadly with an inch of space. The Cardinals were lucky Breida didn't break free for even more big plays. Coleman, meanwhile, simply couldn't find any running room. After a month of Coleman steadily taking command of the Niners' running back room, we almost find ourselves back at square one. Breida will be an upside RB2/FLEX for Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Matt Breida (ankle) remained limited at Friday's practice.

Breida played through his ankle injury last week, out-touching Tevin Coleman and playing 39 percent of snaps. The 49ers are managing his reps ahead of Monday night's game with Seattle.

Matt Breida rushed 10 times for 18 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for seven yards in the 49ers' Week 10 loss to the Seahawks.

Breida left in the second half after re-injuring his ankle and never returned to the game. He was on the injury report during the practice week with an ankle issue but wasn't listed on the final report Saturday. On a short week, it will be a challenge for Breida to get ready for Week 11 against the Cardinals, though he routinely plays through ailments. Raheem Mostert filled in for him with 35 yards on seven touches alongside Tevin Coleman.

Does this guy leave every single game injured? Only then to practiced every day on a limited basis? And then end up starting the next game and screwing up Coleman's value.

He's Rasputin.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Matt Breida (ankle) "may miss some time."

Breida will get a second opinion after re-spraining his ankle Monday night. This doesn't sound like too bad of a setback, but it puts his Week 11 status in jeopardy. Breida has a history of playing through injuries — he played most of 2018 at less than 100 percent — but the 49ers may want him rested for their stretch run. Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson would see expanded roles if Breida misses time.

Is Mostert vs Ari a play?

Probably.  SF uses the rb’s a ton.  Coleman is a 13-17 touch guy.  Rest of touches have to go somewhere

If you think Brieda won't suit up and go 12-78 Sunday, I don't know what else to tell ya.

With 64 of those on his first 2 touches on the first drive.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.

Breida aggravated a low-ankle sprain in the Monday night loss to the Seahawks. Raheem Mostert should slide right into his 1B role next to Tevin Coleman, making Mostert a worthwhile FLEX option for desperate fantasy owners looking for 8-10 touches.

If Kyle is smart you have Mostert and Wilson, get Breida 100% for the stretch run. Oh wait I forgot HE'S A SHANAHAN.

Matt Breida (ankle) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

As expected. Breida will reportedly be sidelined for "1-2 weeks" while his re-aggravated low-ankle sprain heals. Raheem Mostert should slide right into his 1B role next to Tevin Coleman, as the former did on 35 percent of San Francisco's snaps in the team's first three games behind Breida while Coleman healed. Fantasy players should expect to be without Breida until the 49ers' Week 13 contest against Baltimore.

The fun part is he might get Herndon'ed... The 9ers have so many injuries they can't fill a legal roster, so some guys who are Out might still have to dress for the game anyway

Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for Week 11 against the Cardinals.

George Kittle (knee, ankle) and Robbie Gould (quad) are also inactive after all three were listed as doubtful. Raheem Mostert is good to go as the sidekick for Tevin Coleman. Joining the inactives for the Niners are QB C.J. Beathard, LB Azeez Al-Shaair, LT Joe Staley, and DL D.J. Jones.

HE'S OUT GUYS!!!

Matt Breida (ankle) is doubtful for the 49ers' Week 12 matchup against the Packers.

Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert formed a two-RB committee with Breida sidelined last week. And yet, Jeff Wilson wound up with the most fantasy points among the trio by catching a game-winning 25-yard touchdown on his only snap of the game. The 49ers boast the league's second-ranked scoring offense and run the ball more than anybody. Continue to fire up whoever happens to be their top-two RBs as low-end RB2s on a weekly basis. That would be Coleman and Mostert in Week 12 if Breida remains sidelined.

Breida a sneaky play coming down the stretch and into the playoffs fresh?

I see footballguys have him ranked fairly high FLEX wise moving forward.

Perhaps a sneaky pick up on the waiver wire before others catch on??? Or an injured player who is fools gold?
