SF RB Raheem Mostert - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 at Cincinnati Bengals
Raheem Mostert filled in after Tevin Coleman got hurt last week and wound up with nine carries and 40 yards, including a nice 18-yard run. Kyle Shanahan clearly prefers to run with two backs, and with Coleman shelved for at least the short-term with an ankle injury, Mostert should get some work. He and Coleman combined for 15 carries last week.
Mostert has some upside against the Bengals heading into Week 2, as on the Raiders, Dolphins and Cardinals allowed more rushing yards per game to opposing teams last year and they gave up the seventh-most rushing touchdowns. Mostert has risk, but he should be good for some guaranteed fantasy points based on potential workload and matchup, making him a low-end RB3 option in deep leagues.
