    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Considering Breida's been a participant in practice each day this week, albeit on a limited basis, he appears to be a good bet to return to action. However, a tough date with Seattle -- who blew out the Niners only two weeks ago -- may set him back to FLEX status.

  • Posted: 12/12/2018 4:27pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) got in a limited practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: It's a good start to the week for Breida, who missed last week's contest against the Broncos. Jeff Wilson has filled in capably on the interim but obviously, once Breida is back, he's the man to roll with out of this San Francisco backfield.

  • Posted: 12/10/2018 4:54pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will be reevaluated Wednesday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: Breida was not able to play last week and his status for Week 15 is uncertain at this point. Owners should monitor his practice participation during the week because he can be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is able to play.

  • Posted: 12/4/2018 2:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 14 with a sprained ankle.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery Wilson totaled 134 yards and caught eight passes last week with Breida hurting. Needless to say, Wilson is at the top of the waiver-wire priority list heading into Week 14 against the Denver Broncos. View him as a PPR RB2.

  • Posted: 12/3/2018 4:42pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will not be able to play in the Week 14 game because of an ankle injury he suffered during pregame warmups before the Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Jeffery Wilson should receive most of the work at running back with Breida out and is coming off a terrific performance in Week 13 when he posted 134 total yards. He will be facing a tough Denver Broncos defense this week but can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 2:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Breida has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of the last two games and has received at least 10 carries in each of the last four games. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider Breida a No. 2 running back this week.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 5:30pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Breida has looked very much like a solid RB2 as of late, and can potentially keep rolling as such with his sizable workload. On the contrary, this isn't an easy matchup on tap on the road in Seattle and if the Niners go down big early, they may go away from the ground game quickly.

  • Posted: 11/28/2018 5:11pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Breida notched his second straight 100-yard rushing effort -- and third of his career -- in last week's defeat to the Bucs, so he's someone owners will want to keep rolling with despite inconsistent quarterback play. Just make sure he's on track to play, of course.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 2:30pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed for 106 yards on 14 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. He also caught three passes for 34 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Breida has posted consecutive 100-yard games and is a big part of the 49ers offense at the moment. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues next week.

  • Posted: 11/24/2018 3:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida has a great matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Breida delivered a 17-101-1 line on the ground and a 3-31-1 line through the air against the New York Giants last week. The Bucs allow the third-most fantasy points to running backs the last five weeks and surrendered 4.78 yards per carry over those five games. Breida is a good RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 8:55pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed for 101 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the New York Giants in Week 10. He also caught three passes for 31 yards and one touchdown during the game.

    Huddle Up: Breida recorded his second 100-yard game of the season and has received at least 12 carries in four of the last five games. He will continue to receive plenty of touches after the Week 11 bye and should be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy running back against most opponents.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 8:37pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) rushed 12 times for 41 yards and caught one pass for three yards in a 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Breida played through an ankle injury for the second straight game, but he was also bottled up fro the second straight game. Raheem Mostert exited with an arm injury, leaving little competition for Breida moving forward. He's a flex option with RB2 upside.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 10:56am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is listed as questionable but is expected to play Thursday, Nov. 1, against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Breida gets a juicy matchup against the Raiders, but will be tough to fully trust given his in-and-out run of injuries this season and his lack of production (57 scoreless yards, no catches on 21 touches) the past two games. Breida owners might have little choice, though, with six teams on bye this week so fire him up as a Week 9 flex play.

  • Posted: 10/31/2018 2:57pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was listed as a limited participant for the third straight day on Wednesday, Oct. 31 and he is questionable for Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Breida is a question mark, as is Raheem Mostert. Alfred Morris could emerge as the back to own on Thursday if neither back can go.

  • Posted: 10/30/2018 6:44pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 30.

    Huddle Up: Breida managed just 42 yards on a season-high 16 carries while dealing with the injury last weekend, and he will have a short week to recover before a Week 9 matchup with Oakland Thursday night. There is some risk, but Breida is at least worth a look as a flex play against a porous Raiders defense if he is able to play.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 3:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 29. The 49ers did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Breida has posted disappointing numbers over the last few weeks but has been dealing with injury. He should have a favorable matchup this week and has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 7:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) rushed 16 times for 42 yards in an 18-15 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Breida was expected to be limited as he battle through an ankle injury, but he ended up leading the team in carries. However, he wasn't able to do much against an Arizona defense that had been gashed on the ground all year. If healthy, Breida should be a RB2 against a porous Oakland defense in Week 9, but make sure to keep an eye on his status leading up to Thursday night's game.

  • Posted: 10/27/2018 9:50pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8, but he will be on a snap count, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The matchup is as good as you will find, but looking at minimal playing time, Breida is a risky flex option this weekend.

  • Posted: 10/27/2018 6:51pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida's (ankle) six runs of 20 yards or more are the second most in the NFL, but he ranks 33rd in carries.

    Huddle Up: Breida is questionable for Week 8 as he deals with an ankle injury, but if he does suit up, he will be a RB2 against an Arizona defense that has allowed the most rushing yards per game and most rushing touchdowns this season.

  • Posted: 10/26/2018 2:08pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 26, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Owners may want to check the inactive list because Breida could be a game-time decision. He would have a favorable matchup if he is able to play and could be a No. 2 fantasy running back.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 5:20pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) missed practice again Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: It's not looking good for Breida regarding his status this week. If the second-year tailback can't play in Week 8 against the Cardinals, Raheem Mostert and Alfred Morris would each merit consideration for starting lineups in many leagues.

  • Posted: 10/24/2018 4:54pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct 24.

    Huddle Up: This isn't a good start to the week for Breida, who appears to be in danger of missing Week 8 after having to leave early in the club's last game. If Breida can't suit up this week, Raheem Mostert and Alfred Morris would benefit considerably.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 8:48pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) posted five runs for 15 yards in the Week 7 game against the Los Angeles Rams, and he left the game briefly due to an ankle injury. As soon as he returned he fumbled.

    Huddle Up: Breida has been banged up over the past couple of weeks, but he has been trying to play through injury. It hasn't resulted in very good statistics, so it's best to reserve him in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 2:22pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Breida has posted decent numbers over the last few games but has been held to under 65 rushing yards in each of the last three games. He will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams defense but could still be at least a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 5:12pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Breida played through injury in the team's high-scoring loss to Green Bay on Monday night, but his status still needs to be monitored, seeing as how he almost didn't play in that game. He's turned into an acceptable RB2 this year and will have that potential opposite the Rams if he plays.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 4:55pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Breida should be able to play this week as long as he does not suffer a setback. He rushed for 61 yards and one touchdown in his last game but will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams defense this week. Owners can consider Breida a No. 2 running back or a flex option despite the matchup.

  • Posted: 10/15/2018 8:36pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida racked up 61 rushing yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 15.

    Huddle Up: Breida had his best yardage total since Week 3 in Kansas City, as he has been dealing with some nagging injuries. The touchdown was nice, and it appears safe to plug him back into the active fantasy lineup if you hadn't already done so. The 49ers host the Rams in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/15/2018 1:37pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) appears ready to play Monday, Oct. 15, against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: The 49ers could choose to give Breida a lighter load with Alfred Morris receiving more touches in his complementary role. Even so, Breida holds PPR RB2 upside in a game in which the 49ers may pass heavily.

  • Posted: 10/13/2018 1:39pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited in practice Saturday, Oct. 13, and will be a game-time decision for the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 15. If he is unable to play, a practice squad back will be elevated.

    Huddle Up: Breida is a risky fantasy play since he is not quite 100 percent and he doesn't play until Monday night. Alfred Morris would shoulder the load again if Breida is unable to go.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 5:06pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Breida probably will not be able to play this week, so owners should look for other options to use. Alfred Morris likely will receive most of the touches at running back and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 1:24pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida's (ankle) MRI on his injured ankle came back negative, according to a source. He is dealing with what has been called a mid-ankle sprain.

    Huddle Up: Breida is the 49ers' best running back when he's healthy, but that has not been the case of late. Alfred Morris will continue to see a sizable workload, limiting Breida's in PPR RB2 territory.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 8:06am ET

    Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) suffered a mid-to-high ankle sprain in Week 5, and he's doubtful to play in Week 6. X-rays were negative, and he'll undergo an MRI Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Alfred Morris becomes a must-own back now, but he's only averaging 3.7 yards per carry and doesn't catch many passes. They may need to bring in outside help at the position. Look at Morris as a flex option in the near future.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 2:10pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (leg) suffered an apparent left leg injury in the first half of the Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals and he needed to be assisted off the field.

    Huddle Up: Breida didn't appear to be able to put any weight on his left leg after going down in a heap near midfield. Kyle Juszczyk and a trainer helped him from the field, so it doesn't look like he'll be back anytime soon. Alfred Morris will handle the majority of the carries if Breida can't come back.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 12:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) is officially active for the Week 5 game.

    Huddle Up: Breida should receive plenty of touches this week and has been a solid contributor for owners. He can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues this week.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 8:43pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) is expected to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Breida has taken over as the primary back, and he should be able to deliver RB2 numbers, especially in PPR formats, against the winless Cardinals in Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 4:37pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: The team expects Breida to play this week and he should receive most of the work at running back. He has been one of the better running backs in the league this season and can be a No. 2 running back for owners in Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 5:30pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Breida is expected to play this week, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He was held in check in Week 4 but should continue to receive a solid amount of carries. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/1/2018 5:18pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) should be able to play in the Week 5 game even though he suffered a shoulder injury in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Breida rushed for only 39 yards in Week 4 but did help in the passing game and probably will have a similar role in Week 5. He can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 10:20pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed for 39 yards on nine carries and added 32 yards on three receptions in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Breida was a question mark entering Sunday due to the knee injury suffered in Week 3, but he gutted it out and was generally impressive. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has kept him under 15 touches in every game so far and doesn't seem particularly motivated to break up his split backfield setup with Alfred Morris. Until his touches go up a bit, it will be hard to trust Breida as anything more than a flex moving forward.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 4:06pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) left the Week 4 game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Breida was having his shoulder strength tested on the sidelines by the training staff. He and Alfred Morris already entered the game banged up.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 1:54pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) was downgraded from a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 28, to a limited session and told reporters afterward he will be game-time decision in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Making matters worse for San Francisco, Alfred Morris was also listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Making matters worse for fantasy owners, San Francisco did not play until the late window of games Sunday, significantly reducing the number of options they have at their disposal. Unless there is a glowing report or two over the weekend, owners may want to play it safe and keep Breida on the bench.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 5:48pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Breida has looked good in the early going but his production could be on the verge of taking a hit with C.J. Beathard taking over for Jimmy Garoppolo under center. Either way, he's still an RB2 or FLEX option to consider.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 4:27pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: Breida probably will be able to play in Week 4, but owners should keep an eye on his practice status. He probably will be the focal point for opposing defenses with Jimmy Garoppolo out but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

  • Posted: 9/24/2018 4:58pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee during the Week 3 game and is considered questionable for the Week 4 game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Breida was able to return to the Week 3 game after the injury, but he should have a decent chance to play this week . Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to have a better idea about his status. He can be a No. 2 running back if he plays, but he will be the focal point for opposing defenses with Jimmy Garoppolo out for the season.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 2:59pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida carried 10 times for 90 yards in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added three receptions for 27 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Breida has exploded for 228 rushing yards and a scored on 21 runs over the past two games. Suddenly the loss of Jerick McKinnon isn't stinging so much in San Francisco. Unfortunately for Breida, the team might have lost Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending knee injury, so that could send shockwaves through the San Francisco offense affecting the production of Breida. The 49ers travel to meet the Chargers in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 12:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (knee) returned to the Week 3 game after he missed some time because of a knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Breida will miss any additional time because of the injury. He was the leading rusher in the NFL entering Week 3 and will continue to be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is healthy.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 10:40pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida ran for a career-high 138 rushing yards and added three receptions for 21 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Breida also set a career high with 159 scrimmage yards. The NFL's leading rusher after two games busted loose for a 66-yard TD run late in the third quarter, taking an outside zone run virtually untouched to the house as Pierre Garcon basically escorted him over the final 20 yards. Breida has only carried the ball 11 times in each of his first two games but has the explosiveness to pay them off when he gets a crease. Another good game could be on tap in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 2:17pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida rushed 11 times for a game-high 46 yards in the Week 1 loss against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Breida had a total of 12 touches and Alfred Morris also had 12 touches. That's the duo going forward for head coach Kyle Shanahan, as the team looks to fill the void left by Jerick McKinnon (knee). Neither really stood out for fantasy purposes. We'll monitor the touch distribution heading into Week 2 against the Detroit Lions.

  • Posted: 9/1/2018 2:09pm ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida is likely to be the team's backup tailback heading into the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Breida is expected to serve as the team's backup even with Jerick McKinnon going down with what the team fears to be a season-ending knee injury. Alfred Morris might be the starter with Breida fighting for touches. Breida still has value as a RB4 in most fantasy leagues since he could see a decent share of touches.

  • Posted: 8/10/2018 2:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (shoulder) will be held out of contact drills and at least the next two preseason games so the team can make sure he is ready for Week 1, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Breida will not start this season but should receive a decent amount of touches as Jerick McKinnon's backup. He played well last season and could be a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 back for fantasy owners.
