San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has 'earned it over these last few weeks' and given the team 'no choice' but to 'give him more opportunities,' according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman was leading the committee backfield until recently and it was expected that Matt Breida would regain his usual workload once he returned from injury, but Mostert's 7.4 yards per carry average and four touchdowns over the last three weeks has Shanahan believing he has a new lead back. Mostert's hot streak can stop at any time, but Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons doesn't seem like a likely spot for it to happen. Consider him a high-upside RB2 for that matchup.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught six passes for 67 yards and a touchdown on eight targets at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: A 39-yard catch-and-run late in the game set up the Niners for the game-winning kick, and it also helped salvage an otherwise pedestrian fantasy day. Atlanta comes to town in Week 15 with the 10th-weakest defense at stopping tight end yardage in the five weeks leading up to Week 14. Carolina only added to the damage with a backup TE.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel landed five of his eight targets for 76 yards at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He added three rushes for 33 yards.
Huddle Up: Samuel has worked his way into being a fantasy mainstay in the second half of 2019. The rookie draws a mostly favorable matchup with Atlanta in Week 15, and the way Jimmy Garoppolo is slinging it of late makes Samuel all that much more attractive. His versatility doesn't hurt, either.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders caught seven passes for 157 yards and a touchdown on nine targets at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He also threw for a 35-yard touchdown pass.
Huddle Up: Sanders has not missed a beat -- in fact has become more dangerous -- since joining the Niners, and he's a must-start option vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15. Don't get to caught up in the idea of trick passes and possible rushing attempts, as Sanders' nine targets alone should be the draw.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman ran three times for six yards and wasn't targeted at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: It's probably not wise to outright cut him in fantasy, unless you play in a shallow league. Matt Breida's durability concerns should keep Coleman on fantasy rosters with just a few weeks remaining. Coleman has taken a backseat to Raheem Mostert the past two games, and with just three total touches in Week 14, it's tough to see him entering any lineups in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed six times for 54 yards, adding one catch on his lone target at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: RB Raheem Mostert seems to have earned himself the primary share of touches, but we've seen Breida explode a number of times with limited handles. He's firmly entrenched as the second-best fantasy option of this backfield. Given his versatility and home run ability, Breida is a flex play vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert rushed 10 times for 69 yards and a touchdown, adding two catches, 40 yards and a receiving score on two targets at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: In consecutive games, he led the backfield and helped fantasy owners. This murky situation is becoming a little clearer with RB Tevin Coleman running only three times for six yards in Week 14. Matt Breida is a concern to scarf touches, but Mostert has shown he is quite capable with limited work. He is a fine RB2 or flex vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 26 of 35 for 349 yards, four touchdowns and an interception at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: We've seen Jimmy G. play all sorts of football in the last month, throwing four touchdowns in one game vs. the Arizona Cardinals and again against the Saints, but he had only three strikes in the two contests in between. The 49ers host Atlanta in Week 15, and Garoppolo is a quality QB1.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Sanders had one of his better games as a member of the 49ers last week but has posted at least 50 yards in only one of the six games he has played for San Francisco. He should be a flex option in some leagues but can be benched if fantasy players have better options.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Samuel has found the end zone in back-to-back games but has been targeted only six times in those two games. He will have a tough matchup this week but could still be a flex option in some leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Kittle is still one of the top tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Breida will return to the lineup after missing a few games and should receive some carries in the running game. He will be facing a good New Orleans Saints defense this week but could still be at least a flex option in leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) practiced in full for the second straight Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Sanders seems to have been fully surpassed by rookie WR Deebo Samuel and is the third option in the 49ers' passing game behind Samuel and TE George Kittle. He's more attractive than usual this week due to what's likely to be a high-scoring game against the New Orleans Saints, but he's still a risky flex play.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: The rookie seems good to go for the Week 14 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. He has touchdowns in back-to-back games and has a great opportunity to find the end zone once again. He's a high-ceiling flex play.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Breida seems set to make his return. He's a high-floor flex play as he's likely to handle the bulk of the passing-game work in a timeshare with Raheem Mostert.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee/ankle) remained limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: There isn't much fear over Kittle's status for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints after playing each of the past two weeks. He played every offensive snap last week and is set for a big game in a great matchup.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman needs 46 more rushing yards to reach 500 for the season and give the team its first trio of 500-yard rushers in a season since 1954.
Huddle Up: It continues to be quite a fantasy conundrum in the Niners' backfield with Matt Breida likely returning this week after a three-game absence and Raheem Mostert coming off his first career 100-yard rushing game (19-146) against the Ravens last week. All three backs are low-end, dart-throw flex plays in tough road matchup against the Saints.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee/ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Kittle has played the last two games since returning to the lineup, but he caught just two of four targets for 17 yards last week against the Baltimore Ravens after posting a season-high 128 yards in Week 12. There should be little concern as he enters a nice matchup against the New Orleans Saints this week.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Raheem Mostert has scored touchdowns in consecutive games, and he had a 19-146-1 rushing line last week. It'll be interesting to see what kind of role Breida has alongside Mostert and Tevin Coleman. The New Orleans Saints are one of the best teams against RBs over the last five weeks, and as crazy as it sounds, it might be best to stay away from this situation until more is clear. It's fantasy playoff time, and they could go with the hot hand of the three.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert played 42 offensive snaps against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, Dec. 1. RB Tevin Coleman played just 10 and RB Jeff Wilson Jr. played five.
Huddle Up: Mostert now has rushing touchdowns in back-to-back games as he appears to have usurped an uninspiring Coleman. RB Matt Breida (ankle) has a chance to return this week which will be one more member of the timeshare with which to compete, but Mostert should handle the bulk of the rushing duties with Breida and Coleman sharing pass-catching work.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) hopefully will be able to play in the Week 14 game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Breida has missed the last few games because of the injury, so fantasy players will need to monitor his practice participation during the week. He would be facing a tough New Orleans Saints defense if he plays but could still be a flex option in some leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle ended up with two grabs for 17 yards on four targets in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: It was a disappointing day for Kittle and his fantasy owners, as he did next to nothing. He'll look to rebound under the dome in New Orleans in Week 14.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders registered two receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Sanders was acquired to be the No. 1 wideout for the 49ers, but he has been just average as he gets up to speed in the offense. He remains more of a WR4 heading into New Orleans in Week 14.

San Francisco 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne finished with three receptions and a team-high 42 yards in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Bourne might have led the team in receiving yards, but it wasn't a terribly impressive performance from a fantasy perspective. He remains more of a low-end WR5 in most fantasy leagues. The 49ers travel to New Orleans in Week 14.

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel recorded two catches for 41 yards and a touchdown on four targets while adding one run for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Samuel did a good job in the offense, looking like the top fantasy option in San Francisco among the wideouts. He isn't a bad addition as a WR4 in leagues of 12 or more teams. The 49ers travel to meet the Saints in Week 14.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert posted career highs with 19 carries and 146 rushing yards in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens while finding the end zone once. He has scored touchdowns in consecutive games for the first time in his career, and his rushing yards were the most in a 49ers game since Carlos Hyde ran for 193 yards in 2016.
Huddle Up: Mostert might be a popular pick off the waiver wire heading into Week 14 in New Orleans, especially if he given the starting nod. After this big performance he certainly deserves it.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 15-of-21 passes for 165 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 loss against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Jimmy G wasn't taking a lot of chances downfield in this one, but he didn't make a lot of mistakes, either, outside of a lost fumble. He'll look for more production in Week 14 under the dome in New Orleans.
