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.

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 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.

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 13's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: The team wants Breida healthy for Week 14's matchup versus the New Orleans Saints, so he will be held out of action from this afternoon's contest. Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. will share carries in the San Francisco backfield, with Coleman possessing the most fantasy value and being a decent starting option in most formats.

Contrary to a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is not expected to play in Week 13's game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Breida had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. Even if he is declared active for the game, he would not be a recommended fantasy option because of the difficult matchup, as well as the fact that he would be competing at less than 100 percent. Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. will split carries if Breida is sidelined, with Coleman worthy of being a starting option in most fantasy formats.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 13 game against the Baltimore Ravens but is expected to play, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Although Breida is on track to suit up, he will be facing a surging Baltimore defense while playing through an ankle injury. He's a desperation flex option, at best.
