Summary

Breida proved a capable producer as an undrafted rookie, averaging 4.4 yards per rush and catching 21 balls as the change-up option to Carlos Hyde. With Jerick McKinnon on board, Breida isn't much more than a fantasy handcuff, but he'll be a high-volume one, likely to handle another 125-150 touches of medium impact. If McKinnon goes down or falters, there will be a sizable role in a fast-paced offense that throws to its backs. He'd draw RB2 usage in that case, and that alone deserves a RB5 selection late in drafts. UPDATE: Breida left the preseason opener with a shoulder injury and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he will miss "some time". (August 10)

49ers | Two 49ers out until Week 1 (Fri Aug 10, 07:07 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) and TE George Kittle (shoulder) both suffered separated shoulders during the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, and will both be sidelined until Week 1.

Our View: Both play rough positions that include a lot of contact that might re-injure the shoulders so this will be something to monitor when they return to the lineup. Second-year players Cole Hikutini and Joe Williams will get increased August opportunity to show their stuff with the pair sidelined.

49ers | Matt Breida to miss some preseason games (Fri Aug 10, 05:09 PM) - Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) will be held out of contact drills and at least the next two preseason games so the team can make sure he is ready for Week 1.

49ers | Matt Breida escapes serious injury (Fri Aug 10, 03:21 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) is expected to be ready in time for the regular-season opener after an MRI revealed no structural damage in his shoulder. Breida was hurt in the team's preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Aug. 9.

Our View: Week 1 brings the stout Minnesota run defense, so even if Breida is limited for the opener, he's not going to be a flex consideration. Breida is still a savvy second half of your draft pick on the possibility that he is more 1A than backup to Jerick McKinnon. Joe Williams will get a lot more run in his bid to be the #3 back while Breida is out.
