2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Carlos Hyde leaving in free agency would have been a great thing for Matt Breida's prospects as a fantasy contributor this season if the team hadn't immediately then signed Jerick McKinnon, an all-purpose back with explosive measurables. While he will likely still play a role in the 49ers offense, particularly in the running game, the chances of him usurping McKinnon for the lead role in the backfield seem low. Breida was effective when he caught passes as a rookie, but his catch rate was below 60 percent which is quite low, especially when compared to McKinnon's 75 percent rate.

Breida does have great speed and athleticism but at 195 lbs, one of the critiques on him coming out of college was that he lacks the size to be an every down workhorse at the NFL level. Still, 120 touches or so on the season seems reasonable for Breida, with the possibility of getting the biggest chunk of a multi-back committee in the event that McKinnon goes down with an injury. That doesn't leave a lot for fantasy upside, unfortunately, but head coach Kyle Shanahan has mentioned visions of McKinnon and Breida being San Francisco's version of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Breida would almost certainly be the Coleman in this situation, with an even lower workload, but that could still mean some splash plays here and there which could make him an interesting late-round selection in best ball formats.

Injury Matt Breida, Pettis out for Week 17
Breida leaves Week 16 with ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 24, 2:00 pm

San Francisco
#49ers injury updates: RB Matt Breida (ankle) is out WR Dante Pettis (knee) is out TE Garrett Celek is in concussion protocol WR Marquise Goodwin (calf bruise) and CB K’Waun Williams (knee) will be re-checked on Wednesday. (Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Breida has battled ankle injuries all season and will miss Week 17 leaving Jeff Wilson to get the start against the Rams. Pettis suffered an MCL injury against the Bears leaving the 49ers thin at wide receiver with Marquise Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne the likely starters.


Injury Matt Breida out Week 14 with ankle injury
UDFA Jeff Wilson expected to get the nod
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 3, 7:50 pm

San Francisco
Kyle Shanahan said 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will not play this week. He hasn’t missed a game since his freshman year of high school. (Matt Maiocco on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Breida aggravated the ankle during warmups in Week 13 and was mostly ineffective, clearing the path for Wilson to become a PPR monster in his absence. With Alfred Morris just occupying space at this point and no other back outside of Kyle Juszczyk on the roster healthy enough to play, Wilson has a solid chance to be a low-end RB2 at the very least in Week 14 against the Broncos.


Injury Matt Breida will be limited
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 27, 11:45 pm

San Francisco
49ers’ RB Matt Breida, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury, is expected to play but be limited, per source. The 49ers want to use caution with him with all he has battled. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Breida has been injured multiple times over the last couple weeks but refuses to take a week off. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups and his availability puts a cap on any upside Raheem Mostert might have. Mostert is an uncomfortable Flex play in Week 8.
