Latest News49ers | Quartet of RBs for San Francisco? (Sat Mar 16, 07:12 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is expected to lead what could be a group of four active running backs on game days this season. Coleman and fellow RBs Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert would comprise the foursome. Our View: It's going to be a cluster you-know-what for Fantasy GMs. We'll have to see how much of the workload Coleman gets and how the touches are split between the guys behind him before we know how to project this RB corps.

Our View: Coleman is familiar with Kyle Shanahan from their days together in Atlanta when Shanahan was the offensive coordinator and they made a Super Bowl run. He's set to compete for the top spot in San Francisco, with Matt Breida (and may Jerrick McKinnon) in line to be his biggest competition.
