San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) rushed 14 times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 28 yards before exiting with a knee injury against the New York Jets in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Coleman took over as the lead back when Raheem Mostert suffered a knee injury of his own. Coleman would be a fantasy starter if he is ready to play in Week 3 and Mostert remains sidelined.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is officially active for the team's Week 1 game despite the poor air quality in the San Francisco area.
Huddle Up: Coleman's status leading up to the game was in question, but he will be involved in the offense this week. He will share playing time with Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon during the game but could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (non-injury) was held out of practice Friday, Sept. 11, due to a pre-existing condition (sickle-cell trait), and head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that it will be up to Coleman if he wants to play in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals if the AQI (Air Quality Index) continues to hover around 150.
Huddle Up: The wildfires across California are to blame for the poor air quality. Raheem Mostert could be in line to handle in upwards of 20 carries if Coleman doesn't go, while Jerick McKinnon would likely check in when he needs a rest and/or on passing downs. Coleman probably needs to be on fantasy benches regardless, while Mostert has a good shot of delivering RB2 production.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman led his team with 26 red-zone carries in 2019. He also scored a team-high five touchdowns on those rushes.
Huddle Up: The 49ers are fully-expected to use a multi-headed committee out of the backfield in 2020, but Coleman should have the inside track on work near the goal line. He's worth adding late in drafts as an RB4/5.

San Francisco 49ers RBs Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert will likely 'share the load' on early downs in 2020, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Huddle Up: It's an interesting yet unsurprising notion after Mostert finished the season about as well as any running back in the league. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has long been a proponent of Coleman, however, and views him as a nice complement because he runs like a bigger back. Mostert should still be considered the better fantasy option entering the season, but he could end up being a little more inconsistent than owners might expect if Coleman stays healthy.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is a possibility to be traded or released in the coming weeks, according to SI.com's Albert Breer.
Huddle Up: The emergence of Raheem Mostert figures to make it difficult for San Francisco to justify paying Coleman $4.8 million in salary and bonuses in 2020. With Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon also on the roster, the 49ers can feel pretty confident about their depth at the position barring a rash of injuries. Coleman averaged a career-worst 4.0 yards per carry last season and will likely have a difficult time finding another spot that will allow him to be relevant in fantasy if his days are numbered in San Francisco.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman faced defenses deploying eight or more players in the box on a league-high 40.15 percent of his rushing attempts in 2019.
Huddle Up: That might help explain that while Coleman tied Raheem Mostert for the team lead in rushing attempts (137) in 2019, he finished third in yards with 544 and was the only one of the team's top three rushers (including Matt Breida) who didn't average at least five yards per carry. Coleman only had 11 combined rushing attempts in the NFC title game and Super Bowl, and don't be surprised if Mostert or possibly a rookie draft pick opens the season as the Niners' likely lead back.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 31, and is not on the injury report for Super Bowl LIV.
Huddle Up: Coleman likely will be sharing playing time with Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida during the game but may still have a solid role in the offense. He can be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday, Jan. 30.
Huddle Up: Despite the status, head coach Kyle Shanahan has said Coleman will play in Super Bowl LIV Sunday, Feb. 2. He's expected to be the No. 2 back in a timeshare with Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) will 'be good to go' for Super Bowl LIV Sunday, Feb. 2, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan Thursday, Jan. 30.
Huddle Up: Coleman has been able to practice in a limited fashion for much of the week, and he was never truly at risk of missing the Super Bowl after dislocating his shoulder in the NFC Championship. He's likely to be the No. 2 back behind Raheem Mostert, but along with Matt Breida, any of the three could take over if they get hot.
