*****Official JaMyCal Hasty SFO RB Thread*****


Recommended Posts

No love for this guy, I have been snagging him in the 4th round of rookie drafts. He is probably on the waiver wire in leagues that have already drafted.

I get it, he was an UDFA, but if he makes the SFO team, he will be fantasy worthy with Kyle Shanahan's RBBC roulette.

https://goldengatesports.com/2020/06/04/san-francisco-49ers-jamycal-hasty-role/

49ers: Could JaMycal Hasty secure the third-down running back role?

The San Francisco 49ers found plenty of success on the ground in 2019, but they didn’t do so riding the coattails of just one running back. Instead, it was a collection of backs that led the team to the success that they had.

Only the Baltimore Ravens finished with more rushing yards per game as the 49ers averaged a whopping 144.1 yards on the ground. Combine that with their stellar 4.6 yards per carry and league-leading 23 rushing scores and you have arguably the best ground attack in the NFL.

And again, they accomplished this without a true bell-cow back. Rather, head coach Kyle Shanahan’s offensive scheming allowed the team to get the most out of players like Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert, Matt Breida, and even Jeff Wilson.

Perhaps no player shined more than Mostert who went from glorified special-teamer to the team’s lead back by the season’s end. And if Mostert could make that sort of meteoric rise in the 49ers offense, why can’t another unheralded running back do the same?

Enter JaMycal Hasty.

Don’t be surprised if JaMycal Hasty makes the 49ers’ roster.

Like Mostert, Hasty enters the league as an undrafted free agent after spending his college career at Baylor. Hasty never became a lead back with the Bears instead being used as part of a rotation all four years.

Given the 49ers’ overwhelming depth at the positon, one might assume that Hasty would be a longshot to make the roster.

After all, Coleman and Mostert are locks and throw in the scrappy Wilson and a hopefully healthy Jerick McKinnon and there doesn’t seem to be much from for an undrafted rookie.

And perhaps that’s partially true. Perhaps Hasty shouldn’t be considered exactly “likely” to make the final 55-man roster. But there are plenty of reasons as to why he can as well.

While undersized at just 5-foot-8, 205 pounds, Hasty makes up for his smaller stature with impressive burst and breakaway speed. The Texas native also has impressive receiving skills and made a living on special teams while at Baylor.

Hasty is never going to be a lead back in the NFL. He simply doesn’t have the size, power, or balance to be able to handle 15+ carries per game at the running back position.

But that’s perfectly okay and it’s not the role he’ll be asked to fill either with the 49ers or another team. He’s strictly a third-down, pass-catching back who excels on special teams and wins coaching staffs over with his work ethic and hustle.

You can never have enough of those players on your team.

Hasty undoubtedly faces an uphill battle, but it isn’t impossible. For starters, there’s no guarantee that McKinnon is even healthy for the start of the season or in 2020 at all. If that’s the case, that wouldn’t only open a roster spot, but it would open up a role on offense.

Many expect McKinnon to take on that third-down role that he once played with the Minnesota Vikings. But if he can’t play, the team will need someone else to fill that role.

That player could be JaMycal Hasty.

At the very least, Hasty should have no trouble sticking around on the practice squad provided he could beat out fellow undrafted rookie Salvon Ahmed.

The Athletic believes 49ers RB Jeff Wilson's 53-man roster spot is threatened by UDFA JaMycal Hasty's impressive camp. 

David Lombardi reports that Wilson has not been unimpressive, but that Hasty continues to turn heads. The 49ers are not going to keep five running backs and will be tempted to bet on Hasty's long-term upside.

Watch that battle if you roster Mostert. Wilson was taking away goal line looks from Breida and Mostert inside the twenty last year until he got hurt. I think he poached at least four TDs. It's good news for Mostert and Coleman if Wilson is gone. That said, I like Wilson. I'd be really surprised if he didn't catch on somewhere.

Over McKinnon too?  Or just over Hasty?

I'm reading Wilson could get most of the carries.

The San Francisco Chronicle believes Jeff Wilson “could see the most action” in Week 3 against the Giants.

With Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman sidelined, Wilson and Jerick McKinnon are next up for carries. The 49ers could also promote RB JaMycal Hasty from the practice squad. Wilson played just five snaps the first two weeks but may be the favorite for early down and red-zone work over McKinnon. In a matchup with a struggling Giants run defense, Wilson is a Week 3 streaming option.

Y’all know that Moster is likely only out a week, right?

I expect McKinnon to be the man (PPR) in the interim. 

long term I do like Hasty as a prospect, but for 2020 everyone needs to slow down a little. MRI confirmed a minor sprain of the MCL.

That’s such a small league! Your rosters must be just stacked!

with 2 people do you even bother with a snake or auction, or do you just like throw all the stickers in a pile and both dive in at once? 🤔

True story: ~16 years ago a friend and I were drinking & started talking FF trash.

We came up with a $50 bet to do a 2-team league. 25 man roster, PPR, 6 point TDs. And no in-season roster moves. We drafted on Yahoo that night. 

I had 1st pick and took PManning. His 49 TDs won me the “league”.

49ers promoted RB JaMycal Hasty from the practice squad.

This was expected with Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman out. Hasty joins Jeff Wilson and Jerick McKinnon in an injury-ravaged backfield. He could see a few touches in a change-up role.

Tempted to jump on Hasty now as I could see his cost in FAAB next week being significant. There are rumors out of SF that they’ve been trying to hide him, especially without preseason games for him to show off to other teams. 

Wilson seems likely to get carries and maybe goal line, but he’s also a former UDFA and Hasty has way more juice. McKinnon is extremely fragile. Curious to see what Hasty can do, especially now that they’ve said Mostert will miss a couple weeks and Coleman the same.

McKinnon had one injury.  That one injury sidelined him for two years, but still...

Also I thought Hasty was a UDFA as well?

Hasty is a UDFA. My point was simply we’ve seen UDFAs produce for Shanahan. Mostert himself is a UDFA. Wilson too.

I misread your UDFA sentence - thought you were saying that because Wilson was a UDFA he should be easier to unseat.  My bad.

Either way got Hasty on my taxi squad so I'd love to see him go off.

JaMycal Hasty rushed nine times for 37 yards in the 49ers' Week 6 win against the Rams. 

Hasty, who started the season on the Niners' practice squad, emerged as the primary ball carrier after Raheem Mostert left with an ankle injury. Jerick McKinnon got six carries against the Rams, but it was Hasty who was in the game when the Niners sealed the victory. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said "Hasty was up for the challenge. Got some fresh legs in there and I thought he gave us some juice a little bit." Jeff Wilson was inactive Sunday night with a calf injury and Tevin Coleman remains sidelined with a knee issue. Hasty, who recorded the best shuttle-time (4.03 seconds) of any back at this year's Combine, could be next in the revolving door of San Francisco running backs. He should be picked up this week in 12-team leagues.

Mostert has a high ankle sprain now, Per Rotowire, and is likely headed to IR.

While everyone runs for Wilson and McKinnon, Hasty might be the guy to grab. 

Tevin Coleman is near returning. Jeff Wilson who had a calf injury is getting healthy this week. And you have Jet.

That's a crowded backfield and while agree Hasty looked tasty, these other guys also had days in the sun.

I want to believe, but have no idea if shedding downtrending guys like Edmonds or Kelley in Hasty's favor, or pursuing other potential backs that could also potentially see their day like Perine or even D'Ernest Johnson are better speculative moves.

Fantasy seems way more of a dice roll this year.

Really going back and forth on the viability of Hasty.

On one hand, even without Mostert it's a pretty crowded backfield, as most have said, with McKinnon still there and Coleman and Wilson about to return.

On the other hand, Mostert was also basically a nobody before taking over the backfield, so maybe Shanahan seems something there with Hasty and possibly gives him a long look.

“(Hasty’s) not as fast as Mostert, but his cuts were sharp and he ran hard on his nine carries in the fourth quarter. He delivered decidedly more pop than McKinnon, who didn’t get any touches in the fourth quarter when the 49ers were trying to salt away the game.”

I spent 34% on Hasty and got him. My feeling is that the injury to Mostert is going to keep him out for at least three and possibly four games.  McKinnon to me has always been an underperformer.  The fact that the team leaned on Hasty in the fourth quarter of a close game tells me they feel comfortable with him. And they didn't even throw to him that much although that is a strength.  I looked at his Baylor tape and I am impressed by the following:

a. He has good vision and seems to pick the hole quickly and well.  When there is nothing there he picks that up and sometimes shifts right or left to find a crease and get something.  Vision is one of the most under rated RB skills and from what I saw he has it.

b. Quickness. He hits a hole hard and fast and bursts through the first line of defenders.

c. Balance. He isn't the best at this but for a small back he is above average and doesn't go down with arm tackles.

d. Shiftiness. He can change direction quickly and elude tacklers in the second level.

e. Soft hands catching.

How did this kid go undrafted? He passes the eyeball test and I concur with overall assessment

Was able to mortgage a pick to get some FAAB and picked Hasty back up for a buck after having had dropped him. Even still, the second time I picked him up was before all of this happened (I'd also bid a buck last time). I did it for Mostert insurance, and that might pay dividends soon.

But to the point: his highlights at Baylor look very good as did his runs against a stout LA Rams front. The 49ers hadn't really gone anywhere against them all night, and Hasty ripped off 4 YPC when LA knew he was coming.

Good show. Love to see more of this guy now that Mostert is hurt.

f. is on a team with an elite run scheme with a history of making nobodies above average RB's.

Exactly.

Wasn't long ago, that everyone was swirling around T. Coleman / M. Breida and some unknown R. Mostert kept acting like an annoying fly for those owners showing flashes and stealing touches.

You never know. History could repeat itself.

The way I think of it is this (if I can spare the roster spot and in my dynasty leagues I definitely can)—maybe right now it feels like I’ll never be comfortable enough predicting injuries/game script/whatever to determine if Hasty is a slam dunk start or not for my roster. But I damn sure don’t want to have him run all over me in the fantasy playoffs for an opponent because a ton of injuries happened and he became an obvious, if unlikely, bellcow. It’s why I’ve owned him and had him on the taxi squad since July or so.
