Player Notes
Sep 23 3:13am ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida ran 14 times for 68 yards and hauled in two of his three targets for 20 yards in Week 3 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Spin: Breida's 16 touches are a season high, but his upside is capped by sharing touches with Raheem Mostert outside the red zone and losing goal-line work to Jeff Wilson. The frustrating thing for fantasy owners is San Francisco is averaging nearly 40 rushing attempts and unable to make any one of its three backs anything more than a flex option. Breida has the most consistent role of the bunch, and he figures to remain a high-end flex when the 49ers return from their bye to meet the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida handled 14 totes for 68 yards and added two catches for 20 yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Breida once again led the rushing charge as the Niners rolled the Steelers for 168 yards on the ground. Breida paced the team in carries on Sunday but ceded goal line work to Jeffery Wilson, who scored two touchdowns. Through three contests, Breidas totaled 226 ground yards, averaging an impressive 5.5 yards per carry. Even with Tevin Coleman (ankle) nearing a return, Breidas role should remain consistent week-to-week. Hell be a dependable RB2 after the teams bye in Week 4.

Sep 18 4:50pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida is a safe RB2 in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The third-year back raced for 121 yards in Week 2 on just 12 carries and should again operate in a near-even split with Raheem Mostert. Behind one of the best offensive lines through two weeks, both Breida and Mostert rank top-15 in rushing DVOA and success rate. While the Niners will deploy bigger back Jeffery Wilson at the red-zone, Breida should have enough opportunities between the 20s to solidify his floor. Against unproven Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, a lopsided time of possession in favor of San Francisco should benefit the entire Niners backfield.

Sep 15 5:40pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida raced for 121 yards on 12 carries and caught his only target for 11 yards in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Breida and backfield mate Raheem Mostert (151 scrimmage yards) gashed the Bengals all day, both enjoying huge performances. The Niners had a few opportunities at the goal line but opted for big back Jeffery Wilson to convert two plunges. Breidas usage between the 20s limits his touchdown upside but the third-year back has the talent and volume to be a weekly backend RB2. Hell be a strong fantasy option in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who just surrendered 152 rush yards to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

49ers' RB Matt Breida ran for 124 yards on 13 carries but no touchdowns in Sunday's win in Cincinnati.

Sep 12 2:30pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida should see the bulk of work in Week 2 in Tevin Colemans (ankle) absence. Breida handled 15 touches for a meager 37 yards in Week 1 but the entire offense logged a sluggish performance. Without Coleman, Breida should lead the Niners backfield against the Cincinnati Bengals. While the third-year back struggles after contact, he plays with a workhorse mentality and is tough as nails. With the Niners deploying a systematic rushing committee, hell likely handle at-most 60 percent of touches, with Raheem Mostert, Jeffery Wilson and Kyle Juszczyk sprinkled in. Despite sharing snaps, Breida is a backend RB2 with the offense expected to rebound in Week 2.

Sep 9 3:43am ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida carried 15 times for 37 yards in Week 1 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Spin: Breida left the game due to hydration issues in the first half but quickly assumed lead-back duties as soon as Tevin Coleman was ruled out with an ankle injury. Raheem Mostert (nine carries for 40 yards) had a better day statistically than Breida, but the latter could be in line to carry the bulk of the load in Week 2 if Coleman's ankle issue is as serious as the team believes. While Mostert will get his touches, Breida could easily be a top-20 play next week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

From TheHuddle

Sep 8 8:20pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida handled 15 carries for 37 yards in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Breidas role didnt change after Tevin Coleman (ankle) went down, with Raheem Mostert picking up the void in the rushing committee. Breidas performance wasnt great but the volume is encouraging. If Coleman cant go in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Breida will likely retain majority share in the backfield, making him a backend RB2.

From RotoBaller

Sep 5 12:30am ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida should have a significant role this season. The teams unofficial No. 1 running back was amongst the league leaders with 5.3 yards per carry last season, racking up 1,075 scrimmage yards (261 receiving) on 180 touches. Breida enters Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a near-even snap share with newly signed Tevin Coleman. With the Niners boasting one of the top run blocking units in the league and the Bucs second worst in rushing DVOA last year, both backs should feast in a game thats projected to reach 50 points. While Breida will be a weekly RB3/flex, consider him a matchup-based RB2 in the season opener.

From RotoBaller

Sep 4 10:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is listed as the team's starting tailback on the unofficial depth chart heading into Week 1.

Fantasy Spin: Breida is likely to split reps with Tevin Coleman heading into the regular season, and head coach Kyle Shanahan will likely ride the hot hand. Coleman is a better option for fantasy owners, particularly in PPR leagues, while Breida should be treated as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option at this point.

From TheHuddle

Aug 25 2:43am ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida ran for 44 yards on seven carries and caught two passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the team's third preseason game against the can say Chiefs on Saturday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Spin: The fantasy community was quick to brush aside Breida after the 49ers signed Tevin Coleman, but the former is the same back he was last year when he averaged 5.3 yards per carry and 9.7 yards per catch. Breida looked like the better back in this one and could very well begin the season splitting touches with Coleman playing for a coach in Kyle Shanahan who usually gets good production from his running backs. The 24-year-old should be considered a strong RB3 option in fantasy drafts.

From TheHuddle

Aug 25 12:00am ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida recorded nine touches for 75 yards and a touchdown Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Breida toted the rock seven times for 44 yards and added two catches for 31 yards including a 20-yard touchdown from Jimmy Garoppolo in the first quarter. While Breida will share snaps with Tevin Coleman this season, the third-year player has repeatedly proven he can make plays when he touches the ball. He should make a fine RB3/flex heading into 2019.

From RotoBaller

Aug 21 1:00am ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida ran the ball once for four yards and caught one pass for no gain in his first preseason action on Monday night against the Broncos. Breida somehow managed to play in 14 games last year despite dealing with several nagging injuries along the way, and he led the team with 814 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 153 attempts. He also caught 27 passes for 261 yards and two more scores. The 24-year-old is versatile and tough, but he's also going to have to contend for touches with Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon, although McKinnon's injury this preseason is boosting Breida's fantasy stock as an RB3/flex type or handcuff for Coleman owners.

From RotoBaller

Aug 2 8:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida is getting reps in the passing game while continuing to show his explosiveness on the ground. ESPNs Nick Wagoner tweeted that Breida was lining up all over the place, including kick returner. Breida proved his toughness in 2018 by playing through myriad injuries, racking up 1,075 scrimmage yards and five scores on 180 touches. With Jerick McKinnon (knee) still not activated from PUP, Breidas stock is surely rising in both Niners camp and fantasy circles. His versatility will fan the hype. It should be only a matter of time before his ADP (RotoBallers RB42) surpasses McKinnons (RB32).

From RotoBaller

Aug 2 4:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida 'continues to get used all over the place,' according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner, who adds that Breida is also starting to get some looks as a kick returner.

From TheHuddle

Jul 5 7:00pm ET

According to a Sports Illustrated insider, San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida could be the odd man out in 2019s backfield timeshare. With the signing of Tevin Coleman and the return of Jerick McKinnon (knee), Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan could have the similar one-two punch he enjoyed as the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator with Coleman and Devonta Freeman. Breida, who proved his toughness by playing through myriad injuries in 2018, racked up 1,075 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in 180 touches last season. An undrafted third-year player, Breida is likely accustomed to adversity. As RotoBallers 40th-ranked running back, Breida could certainly capture a larger share of snaps with a strong training camp and holds better draft value than Coleman (RB29) and McKinnon (RB32).

From RotoBaller

Jun 24 2:03am ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida will be in a crowded backfield heading into 2019 as long as everyone is healthy.

Fantasy Spin: Breida will be in a fierce battle in training camp and the preseason with Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Raheem Mostert and Jeffery Wilson. Coleman is considered the frontrunner at this point, so Breida might be battling McKinnon to be up during the regular season if everyone is healthy, as Mostert is considered a lock due to his prowess on special teams.

From TheHuddle

May 23 1:00am ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida (pectoral) has a slightly torn pectoral muscle but will not need surgery. He will miss organized team activities but should be ready for the start of training camp this summer. Breida seemingly played injured for most of the 2018 season but managed to run the ball 153 times for 814 yards (5.3 average) and three touchdowns in 14 games. It looks like he'll be ready for the start of the season, but an injury of this nature could hurt him as he attempts to distance himself in a crowded backfield that includes Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Jeffery Wilson and Raheem Mostert.

From RotoBaller

May 21 4:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (pectoral) will not take part in organized team activities after slightly tearing a pectoral muscle while lifting weights this spring. Breida is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, however.

From TheHuddle

May 16 12:53pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida said Wednesday, May 15, the team could feature a three-man running back rotation also involving Jerick McKinnon and Tevin Coleman. 'They've talked to us about it,' Breida said. 'They've said, 'Hey, we're going to use all you guys.' All three of us are going to be used a lot. I don't want to give away any secrets, but we're all going to be used in the offense.' It's still too early/unclear how snaps will be divided.

Fantasy Spin: There are ample fantasy points to be found with Kyle Shanahan running backs, but the current three-pronged outlook doesn't bode well for fantasy GMs at the moment. Hopefully you'll have ample time before your drafts to see if the picture takes on some clarity.
