San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is looking to be paid similarly to what the highest-paid running backs on the roster are scheduled to make, according to Mostert's agent. RB Tevin Coleman is scheduled to make $4.55 million next season, which is what Mostert would like to make.
Huddle Up: Mostert has asked for a trade, but the 49ers may decide to keep him with or without a new contract. He is coming off his best season and would have a significant role if he stays with the 49ers. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Mostert could be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Mostert is coming off the best season of his career with 772 rushing yards and eight touchdowns but has not received the new contract he is looking for this offseason.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has had contract extension talks with the 49ers this offseason, but it is not known how much progress they have made during the talks, according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows.
Huddle Up: Mostert had a breakout season in 2019 and will continue to have a significant role in the offense this upcoming season. He has a chance to be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues and can be a flex option in most leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert soon could receive a contract extension this offseason, in the opinion of one team beat reporter.
Huddle Up: Mostert emerged as a late-season fantasy force in 2019 and wound up leading the team in rushing (772 yards) and total TDs (10). He still projects as the Niners' lead back, but there also is plenty of competition for touches so value him as a low-end RB2 for now.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert has added some muscle to his frame - he played last season around 205 pounds - in anticipation that he will handle at least 200 carries in 2020.
Huddle Up: Mostert tied Tevin Coleman for the team lead with 137 carries last season. Both backs return this season, but the former was clearly the better back at the end of the season. Matt Breida and his 123 rush attempts were traded to the Miami Dolphins during the draft, so the opportunity is there for Mostert if he can stay healthy. As a lead back in a very good offense, Mostert makes for a high-upside RB3 option in most leagues this year.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert said he wants to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Mostert exploded in the NFC Championship game, rushing for 220 yards and four touchdowns. 'That's something I want to be, man. I want to be able to have a gold jacket, and the only way to do that is to be great,' Mostert said. The 49ers remain deep at running back, with Mostert returning along with Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon.
Huddle Up: Mostert will be an interesting RB4 in 2020, as he'll likely be part of a consistent committee situation again this season. Considering the other backs have had health problems and his impressive showing in 2019, he'll definitely bring upside to the table.

San Francisco 49ers RBs Raheem Mostert (3.5) and Matt Breida (3.3) ranked first and second, respectively, in the league among running backs in average yards before contact per attempt last season.

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 rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries in a 37-20 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 19, becoming the first player in NFL history to rush for at least 200 yards and four touchdowns in a playoff game.

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.
