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.

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.
