San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert gained 158 of his 220 rushing yards after contact in the NFC Championship Game win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 19. It was the most yards after contact by a running back in the postseason since 2006.
Huddle Up: Next up is a Chiefs run defense that surrendered 128.2 yards per game during the regular season -- seventh most in the league -- but the larger fantasy question is whether Mostert will enter 2020 as the Niners' lead back. A standout game on the Super Bowl stage surely will go a long way toward cementing that.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is the only player since special-teams tackles were first tracked in 2001 to lead his team in rushing yards and special-teams tackles in the same season.
Huddle Up: While Mostert is a breakout talent who led the Niners in rushing in each of their last six regular-season games, keep in mind that it was Tevin Coleman who led the squad in rushing attempts (22), yards (105) and touchdown runs (2) in the divisional-round playoff win over the Vikings as Mostert (12-58-0) battled a calf cramp which he said was an after affect of an illness he dealt with the week leading up to the game. In the meantime, it's a plus matchup Sunday against a Packers defense which allowed the ninth-most rushing yards (120.1) per game during the regular season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Mostert will have a solid role in the running game against the Green Bay Packers and could see a few targets in the passing game. He has a chance to be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Mostert's on track to play in the NFC Championship Sunday, Jan. 19. He took a back seat to RB Tevin Coleman in the Divisional Round game against the Minnesota Vikings, but he was still able to rack up 58 yards and 12 carries. He's worth starting, but Coleman should be viewed as the better option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Mostert has received at least 10 carries in each of the last six games and should have a similar role this week. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert rushed a team-high 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Mostert has now scored in five straight games, and more importantly, he has logged double-digit carries in four straight contests. There is some risk that the 49ers could ride a different back on any given week, bu Mostert is a viable flex option with RB2 upside.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has 'earned it over these last few weeks' and given the team 'no choice' but to 'give him more opportunities,' according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Tevin Coleman was leading the committee backfield until recently and it was expected that Matt Breida would regain his usual workload once he returned from injury, but Mostert's 7.4 yards per carry average and four touchdowns over the last three weeks has Shanahan believing he has a new lead back. Mostert's hot streak can stop at any time, but Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons doesn't seem like a likely spot for it to happen. Consider him a high-upside RB2 for that matchup.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert rushed 10 times for 69 yards and a touchdown, adding two catches, 40 yards and a receiving score on two targets at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: In consecutive games, he led the backfield and helped fantasy owners. This murky situation is becoming a little clearer with RB Tevin Coleman running only three times for six yards in Week 14. Matt Breida is a concern to scarf touches, but Mostert has shown he is quite capable with limited work. He is a fine RB2 or flex vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert posted career highs with 19 carries and 146 rushing yards in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens while finding the end zone once. He has scored touchdowns in consecutive games for the first time in his career, and his rushing yards were the most in a 49ers game since Carlos Hyde ran for 193 yards in 2016.
Huddle Up: Mostert might be a popular pick off the waiver wire heading into Week 14 in New Orleans, especially if he given the starting nod. After this big performance he certainly deserves it.
