Despite playing second fiddle to backfield mate Tevin Coleman since his return, San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida still holds plenty of standalone fantasy value. Playing fewer snaps than Coleman, Breida has converted 31 touches into 192 scrimmage yards and two scores since Week 5. The third-year back has also been utilized in the passing game this season, which bodes well against a Washington Redskins Defense in Week 7 thats been horrible at stopping either facet. Behind an elite offensive line, Breida has the breakaway speed to bust a big play anytime and sets up nicely as a backend RB2 on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy leads all rushers - minimum 20 rush attempts - with 6.79 yards per carry on first down. Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ranks second at 6.32, while Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (5.87), Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (5.83) and San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (5.71) round out the top five.
San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida toted the rock 13 times for 36 yards and caught four passes for 27 yards in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams. Breida was mostly stuffed on Sunday and yielded the lions share of work to Tevin Coleman, but he still posted a serviceable line with his opportunities. With Coleman looking fully healthy from his ankle injury, Breida has become a clear first mate. But with the Niners deploying a structural rushing committee, Breidas still a recommended RB3 and has major upside in Week 7 against a terrible Washington Redskins Defense.
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed 13 times for 36 yards and caught all four of his targets for 27 yards in a 20-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: Tevin Coleman appears to be the lead back in San Francisco's committee, but Breida is the No. 2 option in a the run-heavy offense. His big-play speed and versatility make him a quality flex option.
After exploding for 129 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns on just 14 touches in Week 5, San Francisco running back Matt Breida enters the RB2 mix in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams. Behind the best offensive line in football, the Niners boast arguably the top running back committee in fantasy and real football. The Niners lead the league in adjusted line yards per carry (5.4) and Breida grades as the fourth-best running back on Football Outsiders. While the Rams Defense has been stiff against the run, expect San Francisco to play the time of possession game and lean heavily on Breida and backfield mate Tevin Coleman.
49ers' RB Matt Breida scored 27.90 fantasy points in Monday's Week 5 win against the Browns. Breida ran for 114 yards and caught three passes for 15 yards with two touchdowns.
San Francisco 49ers right tackle Mike McGlinchey (knee) will be out four to six weeks. With left tackle Joe Staley and fullback Kyle Juszczyk also injured, it's a big blow for the team's offensive line and run blocking ahead of Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman. It's something to keep an eye on moving forward, but both Breida and Coleman will be on the RB2/3 borderline in Week 6 against the Rams. LA has allowed the 10th most fantasy points per game (21.5) to running backs in 2019.
San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida handled 11 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns, adding three catches for 15 yards and another score. The first quarter belonged to Breida, as he ripped the first play from scrimmage 83 yards for a touchdown. The third-year back followed up with a nifty 5-yard grab to extend the lead to 14-0 shortly afterwards. Breida operated in a timeshare with Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert, but showed his blazing speed and all-around versatility on Monday night. He likely won many leagues with the breakout performance. With the teams elite offensive line, both Breida and Coleman have standalone RB2 value and should remain in lineups in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams.
San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed 11 times for 114 yards and a touchdown while adding three grabs for 15 yards and a score in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Breida's 83-yard run on the first play from scrimmage set the tone for the night, and was his first score of the 2019 season. He liked it so much he did it again later in the first half on a reception. The 49ers hit the road to meet the Rams in Week 6. Treat Breida as more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.
49ers' RB Matt Breida ran for 114 yards on 11 carries with one touchdown for an outstanding 10.4 yards per carry in Monday's win against the Browns.
San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida enters Week 5 with the most established role in the backfield. With the likely return of Tevin Coleman (ankle), the rushing corps will be in flux as hes worked back in the mix. However, Breidas proved himself over the past two seasons as a useful RB2 in the Niners structural rushing committee. Averaging 5.5 YPC behind an excellent offensive line, Breida should again be inline for double digit touches while operating between the 20s. His lack of usage in the red zone caps the upside, but Breida possesses the volume to work in any fantasy lineup against a shaky Browns run defense.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
