San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman led his team with 26 red-zone carries in 2019. He also scored a team-high five touchdowns on those rushes.
Fantasy Spin: The 49ers are fully-expected to use a multi-headed committee out of the backfield in 2020, but Coleman should have the inside track on work near the goal line. He's worth adding late in drafts as an RB4/5.
San Francisco 49ers RBs Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will likely 'share the load' on early downs in 2020, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Fantasy Spin: It's an interesting yet unsurprising notion after Mostert finished the season about as well as any running back in the league. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has long been a proponent of Coleman, however, and views him as a nice complement because he runs like a bigger back. Mostert should still be considered the better fantasy option entering the season, but he could end up being a little more inconsistent than owners might expect if Coleman stays healthy.
San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is a possibility to be traded or released in the coming weeks, according to SI.com's Albert Breer.
Fantasy Spin: The emergence of Raheem Mostert figures to make it difficult for San Francisco to justify paying Coleman $4.8 million in salary and bonuses in 2020. With Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon also on the roster, the 49ers can feel pretty confident about their depth at the position barring a rash of injuries. Coleman averaged a career-worst 4.0 yards per carry last season and will likely have a difficult time finding another spot that will allow him to be relevant in fantasy if his days are numbered in San Francisco.
San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman faced defenses deploying eight or more players in the box on a league-high 40.15 percent of his rushing attempts in 2019.
Fantasy Spin: That might help explain that while Coleman tied Raheem Mostert for the team lead in rushing attempts (137) in 2019, he finished third in yards with 544 and was the only one of the team's top three rushers (including Matt Breida) who didn't average at least five yards per carry. Coleman only had 11 combined rushing attempts in the NFC title game and Super Bowl, and don't be surprised if Mostert or possibly a rookie draft pick opens the season as the Niners' likely lead back.
