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.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 29.
Huddle Up: Coleman may be a game-time decision for the Super Bowl, but he appears to have a good chance to play based on his practice participation. He will be part of a committee at running back if he plays and can be a possible flex option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) said his injured shoulder is feeling good but wants to see how his range of motion is and how he will be able to manage the pain in his shoulder.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Coleman's practice participation this week to see if he will be in any danger of missing the Super Bowl. He will be part of a committee if he plays and can be a flex option.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 24, and is considered questionable for Super Bowl LIV.
Huddle Up: Coleman probably will need to practice at some point next week if he wants to play in the Super Bowl. He will share playing time with Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida if he is active and could be a flex option.
