San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has finalized a new contract with the team, his agent announced Monday.
Earlier this month, agent Brett Tessler announced he had requested that the 49ers trade his client because of unproductive contract talks. However, the situation changed on Monday as Tessler tweeted:
"Just finalized a new deal for Raheem Mostert with the San Francisco 49ers. Happy we got things worked out and looking forward to him having another great season there. Thanks to the organization for taking care of him."
Details of the contract were not immediately known, but before the deal, Mostert was scheduled to be paid a base salary of $2.575 million this season and was due $2.875 million in 2021 as part of a three-year contract he signed last year. Mostert will be a high-upside back in any given week, but given the nature of the 49ers’ hot-hand approach at the position, this may be a frustrating situation for fantasy owners.
SF RB Kyle Juszczyk - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Seattle Seahawks
Kyle Juszczyk vultured a touchdown against the Falcons two weeks ago, but outside of his potential to do that, he has very little fantasy value. He’ll occasionally catch multiple passes as well, but there’s no indication that he’ll do that in any given week, making him far too risky to have in lineups, particularly with the championship on the line. Sit him or leave him on waivers.
