San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida may not make the final roster next season because of the other running backs on the roster, in the opinion of NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Huddle Up: Breida fell behind Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert on the depth chart this season and could be on the trade block this offseason. He could be a solid backup for a team, but his fantasy value is uncertain at this point.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is a potential candidate to be traded, in the opinion of Spotrac.com.
Huddle Up: Breida saw a decline from his career numbers of 2018 (1,075 total yards, five TDs), totaling 743 yards and two scores last season. More alarmingly, he only had nine rushing attempts for 19 yards during the Niners' three-game ground-heavy run to the Super Bowl and with San Fran already rostering Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and possibly getting Jerick McKinnon back after a pair of seasons missed to injury, don't be surprised to see Breida dealt.

San Francisco 49ers restricted free-agent RB Matt Breida was tendered at a second-round level Tuesday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Breida will return to the backfield mix alongside Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon in 2020. He's likely to begin the season as the No. 3 option from the group and won't be worth much thought on draft day.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is likely to receive an RFA tender, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Breida took a back seat to Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman during the Niners' run to Super Bowl LIV. He totaled 743 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in the regular season while starting just five games. He should be viewed as the team's third option in the backfield if he returns in 2020.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida did not play a single offensive staff in Super Bowl LIV, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Breida is set to become a restricted free agent in March. It's unclear why he became the forgotten man in San Francisco's backfield so quickly, although his role dried up shortly after he fumbled twice in a Week 15 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Breida has done enough during his time in San Francisco to draw some interest from other teams, but his fantasy prospects look bleaker now than they did at the same time last year.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida did not record a touch in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Breida has been San Francisco's most explosive back, but after a pair of fumbles in Week 15, it appears he may be in the doghouse. If you are in a league that includes Week 17 in its scoring, Raheem Mostert is the the 49ers running back you want to own.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida carried four times for 11 yards and caught both of his targets for six yards in Week 15 versus the Atlanta Falcons. He also fumbled twice, losing one of them.
Huddle Up: Breida is probably the most dynamic running back San Francisco has, but his two-fumble performance in this one figures to keep him from being able to forge a committee with Raheem Mostert until the playoffs or next season. With the fantasy season coming to an end for most folks in Week 16, redraft owners can probably cut him if they need the roster spot.

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 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 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.
