Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Breida is part of a committee at running back for the Dolphins and has posted only 59 yards in two games. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida carried seven times for 37 yards in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills and he added a two-yard grab.
Huddle Up: Breida split the backfield touches with Myles Gaskin at seven apiece, while Jordan Howard ran five times. Until a clear-cut leader in the backfield emerges, and he might never do so, it's hard to depend on any of these guys for fantasy purposes. The Dolphins travel to meet the Jaguars in Week 3 on Thursday.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida rushed for 22 yards on five carries against the New England Patriots in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Breida was part of a committee at running back in Week 1 and his role each week may depending on the team's game plan. He can be rostered in fantasy leagues but probably should not be a starting option next week.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is listed as the No. 2 tailback on the depth chart on the club's official website behind RB Jordan Howard.
Huddle Up: It's not terribly surprising. Howard will see a majority of the carries, but Breida will see his fair share of touches as well. The former 49ers tailback has proven he can handle the regular touches in an NFL backfield, but he has had trouble staying healthy, and that's an obvious drawback for fantasy owners. Snap him up in the later rounds for depth.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is expected to receive 35 percent of the touches in the backfield, according to beat writer Cameron Wolfe.
Huddle Up: That seems a bit low. Wolfe expects Howard to receive 50 percent, Breida 35 percent and the remaining 15 percent goes to the field. That may be true for rushes, but Howard doesn't catch the ball often, and Breida specializes there. Breida is still a low-end RB3 in PPR.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida has not had any contract extension talks with the Dolphins this offseason, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Breida will be sharing playing time with Jordan Howard this season, but it is not known which back will win the starting job. Breida has posted solid numbers over the last few seasons and could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his role.

Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is tied with Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay for second in the NFL since 2017 in yards before contact at 2.4 per carry, trailing only Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (3.1) over that span.

Updating a previous story, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida's one-year tender signed Thursday, April 16, is worth $3.259 million but it's not guaranteed.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida signed his one-year contract tender Thursday, April 16.
Huddle Up: Breida was a hot draft target in 2019, but he has slipped firmly behind RBs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman following injuries last season. He's at risk of being cut and will need to latch on elsewhere to have a shot at returning fantasy value.
