Week 16 vs. Chicago Bears
Matt Breida ended up being active last week despite being limited most of the days prior. He wound up with 96 yards from scrimmage on 17 carries and five receptions. Breida has been a primary cog in the 49ers offense when he’s been active and healthy. He aggravated his ankle towards the end of the game last week, so fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status.
Should Breida be active, he’ll face a Bears defense that has allowed the third-least fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, including allowing only five rushing touchdowns all season. If Breida starts, his volume of work makes him a low-end RB2 in the right situations, but fantasy owners would probably be better off just avoiding the San Francisco running game this week.
