49ers running back Matt Breida left the first preseason game with a shoulder injury and did not return.
This would be a fairly significant injury, fantasy-wise, as Breida is expected to be closer to a 1B than a true No. 2 back to Jerick McKinnon this year. If he misses any time, it could leave McKinnon in a true workhorse role, or open up some touches for 2017 draft pick Joe Williams.
It would be a shock if the Dolphins don't come away with a new feature back this offseason. Gaskin and Ahmed showed promise, but they are best as rotation backs.
Miami has been rumored to be interested in free agent Aaron Jones, and both Leonard Fournette and Le'Veon Bell have also been mentioned as options. Wolfe also states that Alabama's Najee Harris and North Carolina's Javonte Williams would be "tantalizing" for the Dolphins, who boast overall picks three and 18 in the NFL Draft.
