Updating an ongoing story, San Francisco 49ers Raheem Mostert will receive extra incentives and a bonus in his reworked contract, per a source. No new years were added to his deal, and Mostert is under contract for two more seasons. He is due $2.575 million in base salary and can earn an additional $2.75 million via incentives and a $300,000 bonus.
Fantasy Spin: The potential for a holdout or trade has been alleviated, and Mostert offers one of the more intriguing risk-reward RB2 targets for fantasy footballers. Consider him as early as the end of Round 3 in conventional formats, and he's generally going in the fourth or fifth, which is bound to stabilize now that the deal is sorted out.
Adam Schefter is reporting the 49ers and RB Raheem Mostert restructured his contract. There will be no trade nor holdout.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has averaged 6.04 yards per carry over the last two seasons - the highest mark for any player with at least 125 carries over that time.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert recently talked with a high-ranking member of the 49ers to clear the air and get on the same page moving forward, according to sources. Mostert asked for a trade earlier in the month, but it is not known if he is still seeking a trade.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation to see if Mostert will be with the 49ers again this season. He was a big part of the running game last season and could see more touches since Matt Breida is no longer with the team. Mostert should be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues if he receives a similar workload in 2020.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is looking to be paid similarly to what the highest-paid running backs on the roster are scheduled to make, according to Mostert's agent. RB Tevin Coleman is scheduled to make $4.55 million next season, which is what Mostert would like to make.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert has asked for a trade, but the 49ers may decide to keep him with or without a new contract. He is coming off his best season and would have a significant role if he stays with the 49ers. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Mostert could be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.
San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert requested a trade on Wednesday, per his agent, Brett Tessler. Mostert and his representation simply want to bring him in line with the highest-paid running backs on the team. Tevin Coleman will make $4.55 million in 2020. Mostert has two years left on his deal, which initially paid him as mainly a special teams player. He became the team's lead back down the stretch last year, helped lead the team to a Super Bowl appearance and led the NFL in yards per carry. It's likely that the two sides work something out, but if not, Tevin Coleman would become a lot more interesting. Even though he's set to be San Fran's lead back in 2020, Mostert could lose touches to Coleman and Jerick McKinnon, making him more of a low-end RB2/high-end RB3.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has requested a trade, according to his agent.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert is coming off the best season of his career with 772 rushing yards and eight touchdowns but has not received the new contract he is looking for this offseason. Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see where Mostert will play this season because he can be at least a flex option in leagues.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has had contract extension talks with the 49ers this offseason, but it is not known how much progress they have made during the talks, according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert had a breakout season in 2019 and will continue to have a significant role in the offense this upcoming season. He has a chance to be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues and can be a flex option in most leagues.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert soon could receive a contract extension this offseason, in the opinion of one team beat reporter.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert emerged as a late-season fantasy force in 2019 and wound up leading the team in rushing (772 yards) and total TDs (10). He still projects as the Niners' lead back, but there also is plenty of competition for touches so value him as a low-end RB2 for now.
San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert hit 20-plus mph on four rushes last season, putting him in elite company among ball-carriers, as only seven players reached that benchmark. And Mostert did it with fewer total carries than anyone. He averaged a maximum speed of 13.75 mph on his touches in 2019, which is the highest mark among all running backs in the NFL with a minimum of 100 touches. Mostert did his best work in the playoffs in the run to the Super Bowl, but Kyle Shanahan prefers a committee backfield, which will limit Mostert's fantasy upside despite his abilities as a runner. Unless his usage suddenly goes up, which is unlikely, Mostert is more of a high-end RB3/low-end RB2.
San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert could land a contract extension before tight end George Kittle does, in the opinion of The Athletic's Matt Barrows. Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne is another player that could be looking at an extension in the near future. Mostert stepped up down the stretch and in the postseason for the Niners and became their lead back, but San Fran's backfield remains crowded even after they traded Matt Breida to the Dolphins. In a backfield that could change weekly based on the hot hand, Mostert will be fighting for touches with Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon (if healthy), making him more of a high-end RB3/flex in most leagues.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has added some muscle to his frame - he played last season around 205 pounds - in anticipation that he will handle at least 200 carries in 2020.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert tied Tevin Coleman for the team lead with 137 carries last season. Both backs return this season, but the former was clearly the better back at the end of the season. Matt Breida and his 123 rush attempts were traded to the Miami Dolphins during the draft, so the opportunity is there for Mostert if he can stay healthy. As a lead back in a very good offense, Mostert makes for a high-upside RB3 option in most leagues this year.
San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert said that he has put on more muscle this offseason and thinks it's necessary in order to shoulder a 200-carry workload in 2020. Mostert, 28, became the team's lead back in the second half of last season and during the Super Bowl run in the postseason. He tallied 137 carries for 772 yards (5.6 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns, but he had only 14 receptions on 22 targets in 16 games (zero starts) in the regular season. His rise in 2019 will inflate his fantasy price, and even though the Niners traded Matt Breida, San Fran's backfield is still plenty crowded, especially if Jerick McKinnon can finally get on the field. Don't let Mostert's strong end to 2019 inflate his cost as anything more than an RB3/flex most weeks.
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 Raheem Mostert said he wants to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Mostert exploded in the NFC Championship game, rushing for 220 yards and four touchdowns. 'That's something I want to be, man. I want to be able to have a gold jacket, and the only way to do that is to be great,' Mostert said. The 49ers remain deep at running back, with Mostert returning along with Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert will be an interesting RB4 in 2020, as he'll likely be part of a consistent committee situation again this season. Considering the other backs have had health problems and his impressive showing in 2019, he'll definitely bring upside to the table.
San Francisco 49ers RBs Raheem Mostert (3.5) and Matt Breida (3.3) ranked first and second, respectively, in the league among running backs in average yards before contact per attempt last season.
