It's a crowded backfield if Coleman does play, and assuming Wilson, Breida and Mostert are all active. Wilson has been getting the goal line work but it's anyone else's guess how the rest of the workload will be split up. The MNF inactives could give us a better clue around an hour-and-a-half before game time.
Tevin Coleman will practice Thursday for the first time since Week 1.
If Tevin Coleman does return to action this week, he will likely be eased back in, as San Francisco has three other capable running backs to fill in. Unless we hear glowing praise from coach Kyle Shanahan, in which he names Coleman the starter, Coleman would probably end up as a fantasy fade for Monday night's game against the Browns.
The RB situation in San Fran could get even more crowded. We just posted as story about Wilson seemingly being the goal line back. The return of Coleman likely means Mostert or Breida sees less work, assuming Wilson remains the power runner.
Jeff Wilson Jr. might be just 6 feet tall and weigh under 200 pounds, but he has turned into the 49ers' unofficial goal line running back. He has scored four touchdowns in the last two games alone, including two during the 49ers' 24-20 victory over the Steelers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium.
The story said the team hasn't had a power back since Frank Gore. Wilson had 30 TDs in his final two seasons while at North Texas and he describes his running style as very simple and straight ahead. Wilson's value is TD dependent as he only had eight carries for 18 yards, but, at the same time he will take away from Coleman, Mostert and Breida's fantasy value.
