San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) won't play Sunday, Sept. 27, in Week 3, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday in a radio interview.
Huddle Up: Mostert has been productive so far with 258 total yards and two TDs on 29 touches, but the Niners aren't going to put him and his MCL sprain out on the same East Meadowlands turf he was injured on a week ago against the Jets. His fantasy owners will need another RB2 option this week, perhaps San Fran. fill-in Jerick McKinnon.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in Week 2 and is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: During what was a brutal day for injuries on Sunday, Mostert appears to have gotten off easy. MCL sprains are no joke and can require multi-week absences, but the 28-year-old back seems shouldn't miss too much time. Expect the 49ers to exercise plenty of caution with Mostert this week in a game they should be able to win without him. Jerick McKinnon has been exceptional thus far for San Francisco and would be the preferred flex play over Tevin Coleman should Mostert sit versus the Giants.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is believed to have suffered a mild medial collateral ligament sprain during the Week 2 game. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI, which will determine how long he will be sidelined.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Mostert's status in the next day. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon will share snaps if Mostert misses more time. Both players can be at least flex options in leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 2 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: The team should update Mostert's status in the next day or two. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon would share playing time if Mostert misses an extended period of time. Both running backs could be flex options in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert ran for 56 yards on 15 carries and added a career-high 95 yards and a touchdown on four catches in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: There are reasons fantasy owners to feel good and bad about Mostert's performance after this one. His receiving yardage is far and away the most he's ever had and more than half of his overall total from last season. On the other hand, he struggled to get much of anything going on the ground and 76 of his receiving yards came on one play on what appeared to be a coverage bust. Fantasy owners should feel decent about starting him again in Week 2 against the New York Jets' tough run defense, but nothing about his history suggests he'll have another day as a receiver like the one he just had.

Updating an ongoing story, San Francisco 49ers Raheem Mostert will receive extra incentives and a bonus in his reworked contract, per a source. No new years were added to his deal, and Mostert is under contract for two more seasons. He is due $2.575 million in base salary and can earn an additional $2.75 million via incentives and a $300,000 bonus.
Huddle Up: The potential for a holdout or trade has been alleviated, and Mostert offers one of the more intriguing risk-reward RB2 targets for fantasy footballers. Consider him as early as the end of Round 3 in conventional formats, and he's generally going in the fourth or fifth, which is bound to stabilize now that the deal is sorted out.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert recently talked with a high-ranking member of the 49ers to clear the air and get on the same page moving forward, according to sources. Mostert asked for a trade earlier in the month, but it is not known if he is still seeking a trade.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation to see if Mostert will be with the 49ers again this season. He was a big part of the running game last season and could see more touches since Matt Breida is no longer with the team. Mostert should be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues if he receives a similar workload in 2020.

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.
