San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert had the quickest top speed in the NFL last season with a carry he touched 23.09 mph, according to Next Gen Stats. He also had the second-fastest top speed at 22.73 on a different carry last season.
Huddle Up: He's under contract for one more year with the Niners, and he's about to turn 29. Don't mistake him as a young, blooming back. He had trouble staying healthy last year, but he has proven to be a quality RB2 in fantasy when healthy. The caveat is "when healthy."

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) didn't participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 22.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) reportedly suffered another high-ankle sprain to the same ankle he injured earlier this season, according to a source. Mostert is not expected to play again in 2020.
Huddle Up: This frees up Jeff Wilson to become the lead back for the 49ers over the final two games, although he appeared to tweak something in his leg in Week 15 on the only target he saw late in the game. If healthy, Wilson will be a high-upside RB2 option against the Arizona Cardinals in the fantasy finals who may cede a few touches to Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon on occasion.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 16 times for 60 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, stepping up for RB Raheem Mostert, who left with an ankle injury after 14 totes for 68 yards.
Huddle Up: Wilson might be leaned upon more heavily for Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals on the road if Mostert isn't able to make it back into the lineup. As such he is a sneaky RB3, flex play or DFS option heading into the penultimate weekend of the regular season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 15 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Mostert is able to return. Jeff Wilson Jr. will be the main running back if Mostert misses additional time and could be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Mostert likely will continue to share playing time with Jeff Wilson Jr. but should see a solid amount of touches against the Dallas Cowboys. He can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: It appears like Mostert has a chance to play in the Week 15, but fantasy players will know more over the next few days. He can be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he plays, but players will need other options available in case he is ruled out.
