49ers signing Tevin Coleman to a two-year, $10 million deal, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

This would be a pretty shocking signing if not for the 49ers purported interest in LeVeon Bell earlier this week. Already in good shape at running back with Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida, Kyle Shanahan has added Coleman, whom he coached during his stint in Atlanta. This one has RBBC written all over it.

Shanahan: 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) on track, expected to be the lead back

Kyle Shanahan says Jerick McKinnon is on pace in recovery from ACL tear and the expectation is for the RB to take lead role this season.

Related players: Matt Breida

Fantasy Impact:

Shanahan hand-picked McKinnon to be his lead back last summer and then an ACL tear derailed his season. Breida played well in his place, so we're expecting the two to be a formidable duo, a la Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman during Shanahan's days in Atlanta. In the 13 games that both Freeman and Coleman played in 2016, Freeman averaged 17.8 touches while Coleman averaged 11.5 touches. Last year, 49er running backs averaged 26.1 touches per game, so if that volume holds and Shahanan uses the same split as 2016, McKinnon would see 15.9 touches to Breida's 10.2 touches. Both backs should be fantasy relevant in 2019.

General Manager John Lynch shared a positive update on that front during an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio. He said Jimmy Garoppolo is throwing to his rehab partner Jerick McKinnon as the offseason gets underway.

“One of the best sights, the other day, I looked outside my office and he was throwing and throwing to Jerick McKinnon,” Lynch said.

Fantasy Impact:

Both players, recovering from ACL injuries, will be able to continue rehab work at the facility in hopes of being well on their way to being full participants in practice once the offseason program gets to that point, the story said.

Rice: Steelers WR Antonio Brown wants to play for 49ers 'really bad'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Hall of Famer Jerry Rice said Monday during a radio interview that disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown wants to play for the San Francisco 49ers "really bad."

Fantasy Impact:

The Steelers would absorb $21.12 million in 2019 dead money on the salary cap by trading Brown, who has notched six consecutive 100-catch seasons -- but taking his $22.165 million cap charge off the books would offset that cost. Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7 million extension signed before the 2017 season.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. Jeff Wilson should see a sizable workload against the Rams.

Rams RB Todd Gurley still not practicing

Sean McVay said Todd Gurley (knee) not practicing all week, something he didn't do today, would not necessarily keep him from playing versus 49ers. He also said Gurley suffered similar symptoms after season opener versus Oakland.

Fantasy Impact:

In order for the Rams to miss out on a bye next week, they would need to lose against the 49ers while the Bears would have to beat the Vikings. Considering how good C.J. Anderson was last week, this looks to us like a good time to get their star back some rest.

49ers RB Matt Breida will play Week 16

Friday, December 21, 2018, 10:16pm

49ers official injury report

The 49ers have removed Matt Breida (ankle) from their injury report.

Fantasy Impact:

Breida is hurt but playing. Weird. We haven't heard that once all year....

Even though he will be on the field against the Bears, he will be both less than 100 percent and in a super tough matchup. He is a flex play at best who will need to score or break a long play to truly help your team in championship week.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) took limited practice reps all week. Breida was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Always a risk for re-injury, he’s an RB2 in a tough matchup against the Bears. He has averaged 13.9 touches per game in the 11 games in which he’s played more than 15% of the snaps.
