  49ers | Positive results for Tevin Coleman    Fri Jan 24, 05:36 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman's (shoulder) MRI results were positive, but Coleman did not participate in any practices this week, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Coleman was reportedly in extreme pain and he's truly questionable for the game. Raheem Mostert should get ample opportunity to reprise the show he put on in the NFC title game and Matt Breida might be called upon. Jeff Wilson should also be active for the game and could play ahead of Breida if Breida has any ball security issues.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt had pot in car    Fri Jan 24, 01:37 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt's car was found to contain marijuana following a traffic stop Tuesday, Jan. 21, in which Hunt was issued a speeding citation in Ohio.

Footballguys view: Hunt wasn't charged with drug possession, but that might not be material to the league if they want to assess a suspension to Hunt. He is already in the league program because of a previous personal conduct suspension and it's possible he might miss a game or more in 2020 because of this incident.

  49ers | Raheem Mostert excelling for Niners    Sat Jan 18, 01:08 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert is the only player since special-teams tackles were first tracked in 2001 to lead his team in rushing yards and special-teams tackles in the same season.

Footballguys view: Mostert is a good back with an all-purpose skill set. The 49ers use a RBBC featuring guys like Mostert and Tevin Coleman. It's one of the big reasons why they've made it to the NFC Championship Game.

  Titans | Derrick Henry not intimidating?    Sat Jan 18, 12:52 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has rushed for 377 yards on 64 carries in two wins this postseason, but Kansas City Chiefs DE Frank Clark says he isn't intimidated heading into the AFC Championship matchup with the Titans on Sunday, Jan. 19. 'He's not hard to hit,' Clark was quoted as saying on NFL Network. 'He's just a big guy -- 240, 245, 250 (pounds). Honestly he should be running harder at his weight and size. I don't see no difficulty in tackling him. ... He's just easy to me up front because I don't look at any running back like they can't be tackled. He's not one of the best guys at breaking tackles to me, honestly.'

Footballguys view: That's not what you want to say if you're facing Henry in the AFC Championship Game. Clark has given the Titans some bulletin board material to be sure. We'll see if the Titans run all over the Chiefs defense on Sunday.

  NFL | Peter Guerriero turning pro    Fri Jan 17, 11:49 PM

Monmouth RB Peter Guerriero announced his intention to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on Friday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Guerriero was one of four finalists for the Walter Payton Award, given to the FCS's top offensive player. He finished this year for the Hawks with a career-high (and Monmouth single-season record) 1,995 yards rushing. Guerriero has track speed and a 190-pound frame meaning that he could attract attention in the scouting community as a change-of-pace back at least.

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Mostert is over the illness that limited his workload last week and the calf cramp that sidelined him in the fourth quarter last week is a nonfactor this week. He's probably the best 49ers running back play for DFS this weekend.

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Coleman was the lead back last week with Raheem Mostert battling an illness during the week. The team might go back to Mostert first or employ something closer to a 50-50 committee this week, although Coleman ran hard last week and almost broke a few long runs.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara a holdout candidate?    Thu Jan 16, 01:25 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara could hold out in hopes of securing a long-term contract extension, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Triplett, who notes that the team's other top contributors from the 2017 draft class can have their fifth-year options picked up, whereas Kamara is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season. Triplett also mentions that valuing Kamara may be difficult because despite his versatility he only plays about two-thirds of the team's offensive snaps.

Footballguys view: We'll see what the Saints want to do here. Kamara is one of the best in the game at his position when healthy and should be compensated as such.

University of Iowa RB Toren Young announced his intention to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: It's an interesting although not completely unexpected move for the Hawkeyes power runner. He's likely to be a priority free agent (and perhaps considered a fullback) for NFL teams after the 2020 NFL draft. During his college career at Iowa, Young rushed for 1,262 yards and 8 touchdowns.

  Titans | Dion Lewis could be released?    Mon Jan 13, 10:14 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis is set to cost $5.162 million against the 2020 salary cap and carries a $1.125 million dead-cap figure if he is released. The Titans would save $9.175 million over the next two seasons by moving on.

Footballguys view: Lewis works only as a change-of-pace back behind Derrick Henry. It's difficult to imagine Lewis staying with the Titans for the 2020 season. Some other team should give him a shot if/when released, but Lewis is unlikely to get a larger role with a new team.
