Summary

After the San Francisco 49ers placed a second-round tender, it looked like Matt Breida was in their plans for 2020. However, it seems like that was just to keep him home and cap-friendly so they could trade him, as they did during the draft. Breida's role with the Miami Dolphins should be pretty straightforward, as his tough running style makes him able to move the chains consistently, especially in shorter yardage situations. He may vulture some goal-line carries from Jordan Howard, and potentially enough carries to hurt the former's value, but Breida is unlikely to have much himself in a third down/goal line role. He would be the lead back if Howard re-injures his shoulder this year, though, and is worth keeping an eye on for that. (May 6)

Dolphins | Matt Breida pegged for 35 percent (Tue Aug 11, 12:02 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is expected to receive 35 percent of the touches in the backfield, according to beat writer Cameron Wolfe.

Our View: That sounds about right. Breida is going to be the change-of-pace back to starter Jordan Howard in 2020. The Dolphins should be running the ball early and often as they groom rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa (who should be starting over Ryan Fitzpatrick soon enough).
