Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 19 vs MIN (22 / 105 / 2 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Coleman got the start with Raheem Mostert not at 100% in this game and he ran hard with a good burst at the point of attack. He was often down on first contact and running in a linear fashion without much nuance as usual, but as the game went on, the holes got bigger and Coleman almost got into the open field a few times. His role as the lead back got him two short scores and he was showing a lot of fight at the end of his runs.

2019 Week 17 vs SEA (5 / 11 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Coleman's last touch of the game came less than two minutes into the second half. It was a 7-yard swing pass on 3rd-and-15, so the 49ers had to punt; Coleman was never seen again. Earlier, two of his five carries gained zero or negative yardage.

2019 Week 16 vs LAR (5 / 33 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Once again, Coleman started but saw the field less than Raheem Mostert. He gained 21 of his 33 rushing yards on two fourth quarter carries. The first was a "keeping them honest" run sprinkled in the midst of five passes. The other made Robbie Gould's game-winning field goal 9 yards closer.

2019 Week 15 vs ATL (4 / 40 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Coleman sprinkled in a single, untouched run for 37 yards among a holding penalty in pass protection, a target he wasn't ready for despite the playing being designe to him, as we all as a handful of other runs that went nowhere. To be fair, though, that long run did require a modicum of vision and change-of-direction at the point of attack in order to get into the secondary.

2019 Week 14 vs NO (3 / 6 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

With game flow quickly devolving into a back-and-forth shootout, Coleman hardly played. All three of this touches came on a single, 3-and-out drive early in the third quarter.

2019 Week 13 vs BAL (5 / 6 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Coleman started, but several short carries ending in a tackle upon first contact led Kyle Shanahan to quickly bench him in favor of Raheem Mostert, the much hotter hand. After Mostert's number was called on five consecutive plays, Coleman briefly re-entered to give him a rest. One carry and zero yards later, he went back to the bench.

2019 Week 12 vs GB (11 / 39 / 1 rush, 4 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)

Coleman faced stacked boxes and was a victim of a couple of poor blocks, but he did show improvement in eluding tacklers on his two best runs of the game. On his touchdown, he powered through three tacklers who seemingly bottled him up at the 1-yard line. And on an 11-yard run in the second quarter, he made consecutive jump cuts to elude linebacker Kyler Fackrell to the outside and cornerback Jaire Alexander back to the inside. It should also be noted that five of Coleman's six second-half carries came with the 49ers up 30-8 midway through the fourth quarter.

2019 Week 11 vs ARI (12 / 14 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)

Vintage Coleman, this was. Except for one carry, he only gained what was blocked for him. Becase Arizona frequently employed eight-man boxes on running downs, that meant not a lot. In the passing game, he could have had a walk-in touchdown on a swing pass at the goal line, but Jimmy Garoppolo led him toward the goal line, whereas Coleman kept his route flat. He did have a 37-yard catch to start the second half, however. On that play, Coleman actually lined up in the slot and ran a shallow cross uncovered through Arizona's short zone. After the catch, he used his speed to run untouched down the sideline until being touched by Budda Baker. Then he went down.

2019 Week 10 vs SEA (9 / 40 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

Two-thirds of Coleman's rushing yards came on an untouched run up the middle midway through the first quarter. Otherwise, he was stymied by Seattle's constant use of eight-man boxes. Coleman's second-best play came as a receiver out of the backfield, evading a Bobby Wagner tackle to gain 16 yards that extended San Francisco's game-tying drive at the end of regulation. Unfortunately, not only did Coleman not touch the ball after that, he didn't play a single snap in overtime because of the 49ers exclusively using their four-minute offense personnel.

2019 Week 9 vs ARI (12 / 23 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Coleman was stymied by the constant parade of eight-man boxes employed by Arizona. That said, there were a couple of opportunities to slip one tackle and produce a big gain, but Coleman couldn't do it. For instance, on consecutive runs at the end of the first quarter, Coleman was poised to be one on one with the Cardinals' single-high safety, but he went down at first contact just as the wide open running lane opened up.

2019 Week 8 vs CAR (11 / 105 / 3 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)

One should never assert that a player with 118 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns had anything less than a great game. However, taking a second look at Coleman's performance reveals almost all of his production came before being touched by a defender. Coleman's first touchdown was a simple inside handoff that went 19 yards untouched. His second was on a screen pass to the left flat, where he ran 16 yards untouched. His third was on another inside handoff, which he took for 48 yards; again untouched. It wasn't until Coleman's fourth touchdown where he had to contend with potential contact because it was on the goal line. And yet, even then, he waltzed into the end zone from 1 yard out having been slightly nudged through a wide open lane. Again, Coleman had a great game. He just wasn't Jim Brown out there or anything.

2019 Week 7 vs WAS (20 / 62 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / -1 / 0 rec)

For the first 55 minutes of game time, Coleman had been doing what he always does: Gaining what's blocked for him, and not a yard more. But then on San Francisco's final win-cementing drive, he made a couple of individual plays that essentially ended the game. On a 9-yard run with five minutes left, he made a nice jump-cut to the inside to elude a tackler at the line of scrimmage. Coleman also converted a crucial first down on outside zone to allow San Francisco to further bleed the clock. And on the final scrimmage play of the drive, Coleman used a bounce outside and a burst of speed to escape immediate penetration into the backfield. This eventual 6-yard gain made the 49ers' field goal attempt with less than a minute left a 28-yarder instead of more like 40; which was a significant difference given the field conditions.

2019 Week 6 vs LAR (18 / 45 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Coleman was the clear lead back, especially in the red zone, because Matt Breida was managing an ankle injury during game. Coleman didn't make much of the opportunity, as he almost exclusively only gained what was blocked for him. Just about the only carry on which this wasn't the case was his first quarter touchdown. On the play, safety John Johnson was unblocked off the left edge, but Coleman was able to stiffarm him to the ground and sprint for the pylon. He could have had another goal line touchdown in the second half, but he dropped a pass completely uncovered in the right flat.

2019 Week 5 vs CLE (16 / 97 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Coleman didn't show any signs of being adversely affected by the ankle injury that kept him out of San Francisco's prior two games. On the other hand, he was mostly untouched for the vast majority of his rushing performance, including a 19-yard touchdown run at the end of the first half, a 15-yard run early in the second quarter, and a 15-yard run midway through the third quarter.

2019 Week 1 vs TB (6 / 23 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Coleman didn't do much of anything as a runner before leaving the game with an ankle injury, but he did have a 31-yard gain as a receiver. Of course, it was one of those "pick that's not a pick" plays, wherein Coleman ran free on a shallow cross because Kyle Juszczyk baited two Buccaneers defenders to run into each other. At the end of the play, Coleman did the same thing he did at the end of seemingly all of his runs, i.e., went down upon first contact.
