From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Mostert was explosive and led the backfield in carries, although he's still clearly behind Matt Breida. He's worth a flex start vs. the Steelers this week, and Matt Breida is a ticking time bomb of an injury risk. It's fair to ask if Tevin Coleman better than Raheem Mostert. He will have lasting value with paths to growth.

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Matt Breida's talent has often been dismissed as that of a late-round fill-in, but he's doing everything he can to shake that tag. Thanks to Tevin Coleman's injury, Breida is again in the driver's seat in the San Francisco backfield, and again he's producing nicely (121 yards on just 12 attempts last week). A creative, quick-footed runner, he's tailor-made for coach Kyle Shanahan's outside-zone attack. Dating back to last year, he's averaged 5.4 yards per rush and 64 per game. Breida ceded 13 carries last week to Raheem Mostert, but that can mostly be chalked up to the blowout win. Although Shanahan likes to use multiple backs, when the game is competitive, Breida is the lead dog on early downs. Mostert looked explosive in his own right, racking up 83 yards of his own. Over his last 6 extended appearances, he's put up 373 yards at 7.5 per carry. Behind them, Jeff Wilson looms as a short-yardage specialist. He's a distant third for carries, but punched in two short touchdowns against the Bengals. All told, this is a deep, dynamic group of runners that's withstanding Coleman's injury just fine. They'll all operate behind a solid front line that's adept at creatively blowing open holes. Even tight end George Kittle, who's blossomed as a star receiver, can be counted among football's best run-blockers at the position. In general, the Steelers boast a strong run defense. Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt lead a tough, space-eating front line, while explosive rookie linebacker Devin Bush is capable of making plays all over the field. Still, on game days, this group tends to offer a mixed bag, as seen in Week 2's loss to Seattle. They did great work against Seahawks lead back Chris Carson (15 carries for 60 yards), but had no answer for complement Rashaad Penny (10 for 62 and 1 touchdown). Penny's highlight was a 37-yard touchdown in which he cut just once to the outside, taking advantage of over-pursuing linebackers in the middle of the field. That lapse was nothing new for this group, which tends to dominate power backs but struggle against quick, one-cut runners. That's worrisome with Kyle Shanahan's zone-running attack next on the docket. Linebackers Bush and Mark Barron will need to play with vision and discipline - neither has been a strength thus far - or Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert can make them pay dearly.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs CIN (13 / 83 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 68 / 1 rec - 24.1 points, $3800)

Mostert actually out-snapped starter Matt Breida against Cincinnati. On his receiving touchdown, which came on a deceptive, one-lineman screen pass, Mostert scored because he had three blockers against three defenders in front of him, and linebacker Preston Brown, who actually went mostly unblocked, gave a lackluster effort in his tackle attempt. Similarly, Mostert's 20-yard run in the third quarter resulted from a wide-open running lane off right tackle, as well as a feeble tackle attempt by cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. He even ran untouched for a 29-yard score that was nullified by penalty.

2019 Week 1 vs TB (9 / 40 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec - 5 points, $3700)

Mostert entered midway through the second quarter in place of an injured Tevin Coleman and immediately scored a touchdown...that was nullified by penalty. The running lane outside was so wide open that Mostert probably would have scored anyway, but Richie James couldn't help himself from grabbing a fistful of jersey. Late in the fourth quarter, Mostert provided a run that went a long way towards putting the game away. Running out of the I, Mostert took the handoff and ran off left tackle. About 10 yards downfield, he lowered his shoulder and ran over safety Darian Stewart before finally being tackled 8 yards later. To add insult to potential injury, Stewart was flagged for initiating with his helmet, so the play actually netted San Francisco 33 yards and a first down at the Tampa Bay 31-yard line.
