San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris carried the ball seven times for 13 yards against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Morris has done little since a 61-yard performances against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 7, but he's likely to slide right back into the undisputed No. 2 spot following the gruesome arm injury suffered by Raheem Mostert. With Matt Breida banged up quite a bit this season -- he hasn't had more than 16 carries in a game -- Morris isn't a bad player to pick up and stash on the bench.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated that RB Raheem Mostert seeing time ahead of RB Alfred Morris was not a permanent switch and instead related to what they felt was the best matchup against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Considering Mostert rushed 12 times for 87 yards it's fair to say that Shanahan was right about the matchup, but this isn't the sort of thing you want to hear if you scrambled to pick up Mostert (or dropped Morris) in the wake of Monday's performance. If it's not too late, it's probably best to take a wait and see approach with all of this.

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris played only one snap and received zero touches in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 15, versus the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: This is an unfortunate turn of events for fantasy owners of Morris, who had received at least 12 carries in four of the first five games. Raheem Mostert was the biggest beneficiary of this development, producing 87 yards on just 12 rush attempts. It appears Morris is no longer worth holding on rosters outside the deepest of leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is the primary backup to RB Alfred Morris with RB Matt Breida (ankle) on the shelf, but he is considered primarily a special-teams player who fumbled on his very first carry in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: There is no reason to run out and try and add Mostert in fantasy leagues, as he appears to have fumbled away his chance at a meaningful role behind Morris while Breida is sidelined. Avoid.

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris rushed 18 times for 61 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in a 28-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Morris saw extra work after Matt Breida left with an injury, and he can be a flex play if Breida misses any additional time going forward.

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Morris probably will receive limited touches against the Arizona Cardinals but is not be more than a flex option in deeper leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Morris received only five total touches in the Week 4 but received at least 10 carries in the first three games of the season. He probably will receive some touches this week against the Arizona Cardinals, but owners should be able to find better options for their lineups.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) and RB Alfred Morris (knee) are both officially active for the team's Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Breida should receive a majority of the playing time at running back this week and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy running back. Morris will see limited touches and probably can be benched in most leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Alfred Morris (knee) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Morris and Matt Breida are both expected to play through knee injuries, but with C.J. Beathard under center, there is a good chance the 49ers could find themselves trailing and leaning more on the versatile Breida.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4 and is further along physically than RB Alfred Morris (knee), according to a source.
Huddle Up: Both backs are expected to suit up, but Breida has more versatility and has the higher ceiling. Use him as a RB2 this weekend.
