      San Francisco 49ers

      Over the last week or so, the running back situation in the San Francisco has turned into a two-way rotation after Jerick McKinnon had a setback with his surgically repaired knee. I’m writing off McKinnon for the year while expecting him to land on the physically unable to perform list. I view him as a wasted draft pick going forward.

      The big winner for me in the 49ers’ RB rotation over the last week is Matt Breida. He’ll gain plenty of chances in the passing game while having a good camp in July. San Fran wanted to use him more in the passing game before the recent news on Jerick McKinnon. Breida brings big-play ability. When added to his value as a receiver, it creates a much higher floor and ceiling. Possible RB2 in PPR leagues while being drafted in the 9th round in the recent FFWC drafts.

      Tevin Coleman will naturally gain more chances in all areas with Jerick McKinnon out of the equation. Fantasy owners will be more attracted to him for sure while Breida becomes the better value at RB.

      Marquise Goodwin left practice last week with a lower leg injury. He continues to move in the wrong direction, which may lead to him looking for a new home after the preseason.

      Trent Taylor suffered a foot injury in August putting him on the shelve for a couple of months. Easy avoid in the Fantasy market.

      The 49ers desperately need upgrades at WR, which points to Deebo Samuel earning a starting opportunity. In the first preseason game, Samuel caught two passes for 61 yards while adding a 14-yard run. Viable backend flier who may gain value over the second half of the season.

      George Kittle has been limited most of the summer with a calf issue, which may be a hint of a more significant problem. Over the last year, we’ve seen some Achilles problems emerge after a calf injury. If given a choice, I would err on the side of caution if you desire an elite TE by selecting Zack Ertz. His situation and value will change if his news turns more in a positive direction.
