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

The San Francisco 49ers placed RB Matt Breida (ankle) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 29, ending his season with 814 rushing yards and three touchdowns across 14 games.
Huddle Up: Breida was battling a nagging ankle injury and other assorted bumps and bruises throughout the season, but he did a pretty decent job at times stepping in for the injured Jerick McKinnon. His fantasy appeal in 2019 will be predicated on McKinnon's rehab and how the workload is distributed.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will not play in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: It means Jeff Wilson should have the backfield to himself. Despite consistently fighting through and reinjuring his ankle on almost a weekly basis from Week 5 on, Breida proved he has the ability to be a very good starting running back in the league. He will likely be on equal footing with Jerick McKinnon to begin 2019 and should be viewed as a flex option at the very least.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Breida again had to exit the team's last game due to his injured ankle but it looks like that won't keep him from suiting up in Week 16. Even so, he's a dicey play considering he's had to depart in his last two games. Additionally, the emergence of Jeff Wilson means he may see less than his usual workload. Owners should ponder more reliable options than Breida.
