From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Oct 16): The unheralded back known more for his contributions on special teams was a strong runner while spelling Matt Breida and he should be in line for more work in Week 7. He could be valuable right away if Breida's ankle doesn't respond in practice this week.

Week 7: vs Los Angeles Rams

All RB vs LAR

FBG says: Great matchup. The 49ers backfield was full of surprises last week. Matt Breida was trending towards inactive status all week until he was declared active only a few hours before game time and suited up to lead the team with 14 carries despite battling multiple injuries. Breida has now been carted off the field twice this season, but he continues to battle through injuries while putting up very respectable numbers, rushing for an average of at least 4.2 yards per attempt in every game this season. The other surprise last week was undrafted free agent Raheem Mostert coming out of nowhere to lead the team in rushing yards with 87 yards on 12 attempts. Mostert had rushed only 13 times in his career prior to Monday night, so this was an unexpected move by the 49ers coaching staff that appeared to have paid off as he looked quite effective out there. Alfred Morris played just one offensive snap last week despite appearing to be in line for the start if Breida had been inactive. With what we saw from Mostert, it is likely that Morris will lose significant playing time going forward. The Rams rushing defense has been quite inconsistent in recent weeks. They shut down the Vikings in Week 4, allowed over 170 rushing yards to Seattle in Week 5, then limited one of the league's more explosive running back duos in Denver to only 40 rushing yards last week. The talent in this defense is undeniable with Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Donald up front. Donald has been one of the top run defenders on a week-to-week basis. Where the Rams struggle is at linebacker, as they simply can't get effective and consistent play out of these guys. Mark Barron has been terrible in the last two games while Cory Littleton is much more suited for coverage than defending the run. The 49ers have a top-tier offensive line capable of holding their own here, and if Breida or Mostert can make it to the second level, they can gain a few extra yards against these Rams linebackers.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 6 vs GB (12 / 87 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

In a surprise turn of events, it was Mostert, not Alfred Morris who shared backfield duties with Matt Breida. Seven of Mostert's 12 carries gained 5 yards or more, including the 49ers' third- and seventh-longest gains of the game (26 yards and 17 yards, respectively). Both were more a byproduct of blocking than anything Mostert did.
