2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the more interesting moves at running back this offseason took place in San Francisco as the team added former Atlanta backup Tevin Coleman to the mix, reuniting him with former Falcons offensive coordinator and current 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. Coleman joins a cluttered, albeit injury-riddled backfield that was quietly productive in 2018 despite countless injuries across the offense.

It'd be easy to look back at Coleman's history with Shanahan and project Coleman to be the lead back in San Francisco this season. The 26-year-old Coleman enjoyed his most efficient season back in 2016 as a member of the Falcons with Shanahan calling the plays, when he rushed for 520 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 421 yards and three touchdowns in the passing game - and he did that while playing a complementary role to that season's fantasy RB1 overall, Devonta Freeman. Without a proven producer like Freeman in front of him in San Francisco, it would appear at first glance that Coleman is the odds-on favorite to lead the team in touches at the position this season.

However, there are concerns about Coleman, particularly relating to his lack of production in 2018. The aforementioned Freeman went down early in the season to injury and the hype train was in full effect for Coleman. However, Coleman fizzled out, rushing for just 800 yards while adding 276 yards as a receiver. His fantasy season was partially saved due to his impressive five touchdowns in the passing game, but his four rushing touchdowns were very discouraging in what was still a good Atlanta offense. What's most concerning, though, is that Coleman couldn't even fully hold off rookie Ito Smith, who saw over 100 total touches, limiting Coleman to fewer than 200 touches on the season.

It's tough to say that Coleman's season was a complete disaster as he did finish inside RB2 range, but there's no question that it was a disappointment given the context of the situation and what fantasy owners were expecting. Those who traded for Coleman once Freeman went down certainly did not return the value that they were hoping for.

The 49ers backfield may not have a proven mega-producer like Freeman in it, but it does have a number of players who are extremely gifted athletes and who have flashed explosive playmaking ability, which is really how Coleman has shined throughout his career. He may be the best bet of the bunch to be the top producer, but that doesn't mean that he's going to see enough touches to have even close to RB1 upside. In fact, the downside is that Coleman could realistically end up playing a similar role in San Francisco to the one he played in Atlanta, just in a less explosive, less-talented offense within a division with substantially more difficult defensive matchups.

Thankfully Coleman's ADP has been hovering around a bottom-end RB2 to high end RB3 so he's unlikely to cost fantasy owners much even if he does disappoint, so the upside of him finishing as a mid-level RB2 does make him appealing given the lack of cost to acquire him in drafts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jerick Mckinnon out two weeks
Dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired knee
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 8, 3:10 pm

San Francisco
#49ers RB Jerick McKinnon dealing with soreness in his knee after practicing past two days. He did not participate today. Coach Kyle Shanahan said McKinnon is getting a platelet rich plasma injection and will miss next two weeks before getting back in mix. (Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers backfield is starting to look at little clearer for the first part of the season. It appears Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida should handle the bulk of the work out of the backfield beginning Week 1 while McKinnon continues to rehab and work back from his ACL injury that occurred almost a year ago.


Devonta Freeman impressing in preseason
HC Dan Quinn says Falcons RB has been "outstanding" this offseason

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Devonta Freeman has had an "outstanding offseason," remarking on his health after a rough 2018. (The Athletic)

FFToday's Take: After battling injuries last year, Freeman has enjoyed a fully healthy offseason and has impressed the coaching staff with his strength and "more violent" cuts. With Tevin Coleman moving to San Fran and the upgrades that have been made across the Falcons offensive line, Freeman could be in line for a bounce-back season and sneaky draft value after the first two rounds.


Niners likely to sit a high-profile RB on game day
Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon or Matt Breida fighting for two spots
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 27, 7:20 pm

San Francisco
Tevin Coleman is the odds-on favorite to be the closest thing the 49ers have to a lead back. He has history in Kyle Shanahan’s system, and he was the only player among Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert to practice this offseason. Mostert will almost certainly be one of the three running backs in uniform because he is one of the 49ers’ best special-teams players. That means one of the backs - McKinnon, Coleman or Breida - will not suit up for regular-season games. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners have seemingly rendered this competition fait accompli in favor of Coleman given his familiarity in Shanahan's offense. How quickly most have forgotten McKinnon is still one of the highest-paid backs in the league and how well Breida performed last season. Coleman may very well end up as the carry leader in this backfield when all is said and done, but it would be foolish for anyone to believe he is a prohibitive favorite to do so.
