  49ers | San Francisco's Week 13 injury report    Fri Nov 29, 05:46 PM

San Francisco 49ers DL Dee Ford (quad, hamstring) and WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens. RB Matt Breida (ankle) and OT Joe Staley were limited Friday and are listed as questionable. TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) were also limited Friday but have been removed from the injury report. PK Robbie Gould (quad) and DT Jullian Taylor (jaw) practiced in full all week and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Breida could be back this week to downgrade Raheem Mostert's value, but he's not trustworthy yet, especially not against the tough Ravens defense. Staley's return would be a boon for Jimmy Garoppolo as he'll face a tough Ravens secondary and need time to break them down. Kittle, Samuel, Sanders appear to be out of the woods with the injuries that made them game-time decisions last week.

The San Francisco 49ers have declared DL Dee Ford, TE Levine Toilolo, PK Robbie Gould, OT Joe Staley, WR Marquise Goodwin, QB C.J. Beathard and RB Matt Breida inactive for Week 12.

Footballguys view: As expected George Kittle, Emmanuel Sanders, and Deebo Samuel are all active. You can play them if you've been waiting on them and their presence helps Jimmy Garoppolo's outlook tonight.

  49ers | San Francisco's Week 12 injury report    Fri Nov 22, 05:52 PM

San Francisco 49ers OT Joe Staley (finger) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. RB Matt Breida (ankle), DL Dee Ford (quad, hamstring) and PK Robbie Gould (quad) also did not practice all week and are listed as doubtful. TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) were limited in practice for a straight day Friday, Nov. 22, and are listed as questionable. LB Azeez Al-Shaair (concussion) practiced in full all week, while RB Raheem Mostert (knee) and DL D.J. Jones (groin) practiced fully for a second straight day Friday; all three players no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Sanders, Samuel, and Kittle are all game-time calls, but seen by at least one beat writer as likely to play. Kittle is a must-play if active, and Sanders and Samuel have some upside as WR3/Flex options because of the matchup. You can carry a hedge from San Francisco, Green Bay, Baltimore or the Rams if you are planning on playing any of them.

  49ers | Matt Breida out at least this week    Wed Nov 13, 02:00 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) aggravated a low-grade ankle sprain and figures to miss the next week or two.

Footballguys view: It's a low-grade sprain so that's a positive for the 49ers and Breida. The 49ers have a deep and talented backfield so they don't need to rush him back out there. We'll see more Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson (in addition to Tevin Coleman) with Breida out.

  49ers | Matt Breida may miss time    Tue Nov 12, 01:45 PM

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) may miss time to let his aggravated ankle sprain heal. He'll seek a second opinion on the injury, which doesn't sound like a bad one.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are deep and talented at the running back position, so they could give Breida some time off or limit him to get this injury right for the postseason run. We'd see more of Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson if Breida has to miss time.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Nov. 9 and is expected to play Monday, Nov. 11, against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are good to go with Tevin Coleman as their lead back. Breida serves as a valuable backup position who could get some carries against the Seahawks.

  49ers | Matt Breida leads team in rushing    Fri Nov 1, 01:35 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) carried the ball 15 times for 78 yards in the team's Week 9 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added two receptions for 14 yards.

Footballguys view: Breida looked clearly superior to Tevin Coleman in terms of burst, although Coleman will remain the goal line back and probably more valuable on that designation alone. Breida remains a flex play with some risk and big play ceiling against the Seahawks next week.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Breida is a what the heck flex with his ability to break any run for a long score against a suspect Cardinals defense, but he carries the risk of going on any given play with an injury.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

  49ers | Tuesday injury report for San Fran    Tue Oct 29, 10:25 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle), FB Kyle Juszczyk (knee), OT Mike McGlinchey (knee), RB Raheem Mostert (knee), TE Levine Toilolo (groin) and CB Ahkello Witherspoon (foot) didn't participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. DE Dee Ford (quad), OT Justin Skule (knee/foot) and OT Joe Staley (leg) were limited participants.

Footballguys view: The 49ers play on Thursday night against the Cardinals. Watch the practice status of Breida and Mostert here. If they miss the game, then Jeff Wilson would get more work behind Tevin Coleman.

  49ers | Matt Breida a non-participant Tuesday    Tue Oct 29, 07:47 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will be listed as a non-participant Tuesday, Oct. 29. The team isn't practicing but is holding a walkthrough ahead of Thursday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: It looks like Tevin Coleman is going to get most of the work again. Behind him, perhaps Jeff Wilson would get into the mix with Breida and Raheem Mostert both banged up. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said if the game was Tuesday, Breida would be unlikely to suit up, but he's hoping the RB can get in a limited session Wednesday, Oct. 30, and be good for Thursday.

Footballguys view: It's a short week as the 49ers play against the Cardinals on Thursday night. We'll see what the practice status is for these two on Wednesday but it's looking like another big week for Tevin Coleman.

  49ers | Matt Breida receives eight carries    Sun Oct 20, 04:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (eye) rushed for 35 yards on eight carries against the Washington Redskins in Week 7. He also caught one pass for one yard during the game.

Footballguys view: Breida is still a matchup flex, although the Panthers next week might not be the most favorable matchup. It's difficult to imagine the team giving him more than 15-18 touches in any game going forward.

  49ers | Matt Breida missed time in Week 7    Sun Oct 20, 03:42 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (eye, head) briefly left the Week 7 game because of a head injury but cleared the concussion protocol. He also left the game after he was poked in the eye.

Footballguys view: This was still a reminder of Breida's fragility and the 49ers likelihood to continue leaning more on Tevin Coleman in the backfield. With Raheem Mostert banged up, Jeff Wilson served as the #3 back today.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy gashing defenses on first down    Tue Oct 15, 02:57 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy leads all rushers - minimum 20 rush attempts - with 6.79 yards per carry on first down. Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ranks second at 6.32, while Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (5.87), Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (5.83) and San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (5.71) round out the top five.

Footballguys view: McCoy can still play at a high level...provided he hangs onto the rock and does a good job in pass protection. The Chiefs travel to Denver to play the Broncos on Thursday night. McCoy has flex appeal in that matchup.

  49ers | Matt Breida tops the depth chart    Wed Sep 4, 10:35 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is listed as the team's starting tailback on the unofficial depth chart heading into Week 1.

Footballguys view: Breida is better than Tevin Coleman, but it was only a couple of weeks ago that reporters around the team felt Coleman would be the top guy. This is a RBBC with Breida having RB3 or deep flex value in PPR leagues this week against the Bucs.

Footballguys view: Breida might be better than Tevin Coleman. He is the much cheaper option in the 49ers backfield and should be targeted as a top bench back.

Footballguys view: Breida is likely to get some work in a RBBC with Tevin Coleman. The 49ers might even go with a 'hot hand' approach which would really frustrate Fantasy GMs in 2019.

  49ers | Matt Breida faces stiff competition    Mon Jun 24, 01:56 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida will be in a crowded backfield heading into 2019 as long as everyone is healthy.

Footballguys view: Breida was productive and a good fit in Kyle Shanahan's offense last year, but he can't seem to stay on the field, with a torn pec his latest malady. He'll be frustrating to roster unless Tevin Coleman gets hurt.
