Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Mostert should be the lead back in this offense, but it might not lead to top-tier fantasy production. The 49ers like to deploy multiple running backs and Tevin Coleman is still going to be heavily involved. Mostert should be viewed as a RB2 this upcoming season.With Cam Newton behind center, this offense is going to be much more potent than it would have been with Jarrett Stidham. This benefits Michel with more scoring opportunities and trips into the red zone. However, the downside is that Newton has the size and power to take away some of those goal line touches. Michel's nothing more than a RB3 this season, in my opinion.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Mostert out-gained Tevin Coleman 772-to-544 on the same number of carries (137) and posted the same receiving yardage (180) on seven fewer catches (21-to-14). --@4for4_JohnMichel recovering from foot surgery, per sources. The surgery was viewed as more maintenance-based to relieve discomfort. How Michel's rehab progresses will determine if he opens training camp on PUP. @MikeReiss - I don't think he starts the season on PUP. I'm like being able to get him in the 8th-9th round.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
7th in Elusive Rating among RBs (min. 100 carries) and had 13 TDs in final 9 games (inc. playoffs) - headed for a Touch/PG boost in lucrative SF backfield in 2020 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After years of two 100+ rushers, in 2019 the 49ers had three guys over 120 carries but it was Mostert who stood out. Mostert "burst onto the scene" (with his fifth team in his fourth season) in 2018 before an unfortunate injury dropped him down the depth chart. His talent drew him back up though and he balled out to end the season last year. Moving forward, Matt Breida is finally gone and while Jeff Wilson will be a frustrating poachers, it's a far more management backfield duo which projects Mostert as its 1A. While he finished the season, playoffs included, with an extraordinary 12 TDs in 9 games, it's far more likely he settles into 80ish all-purpose yards and a possible TD most weeks. That's good for seasonal RB2 value with the occasional week winning explosion. That's nice and all, but there's little seasonal top-end upside so you're likely best off looking elsewhere.You know what you'll be getting if you draft Sony Michel. 900 yards, 7ish TDs and an RB3 finish. Most weeks that'll mean single digit fantasy points and that's not ideal, but there is upside. If the Pats are forced to go very run-heavy given their awkward QB situation, it's possible Michel will get a lot more run. Then again it's also possible Damien Harris comes in and takes a large part of Michel's work. Ultimately, he's little more than a backup with some non-PPR upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After the way Mostert played in the playoffs, many were looking forward to a 2020 breakout season, and it helps knowing that Matt Breida was traded to the Dolphins. The issue is that they are getting Jerick McKinnon back, still have Tevin Coleman, and Jeff Wilson. The passing game also got a new weapon, which could lead to slightly more pass attempts. Despite being on the roster the past two years under Shanahan, Mostert has received 171 carries in 25 games. It's tough to see that changing drastically. There's a chance, which is why he's in the high-end RB3 conversation, but there's also a chance you can't start him with confidence every week.After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign where he failed to finish as a top-24 running back despite racking up 209 carries in the high-scoring Patriots offense, Michel had an even worse sophomore campaign, averaging just 3.7 yards per carry and scoring just seven touchdowns on 259 touches. The Patriots spent a first-round pick on him, so he'll be given every opportunity to succeed, but they won't allow him to be inefficient much longer with Damien Harris waiting in the wings. Michel simply hasn't been the player we watched at Georgia. It's hard to see losing Tom Brady actually help him become more efficient.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Michel has justifiably fallen out of favor for fantasy owners after yet another sub-par year, and there's little excitement about him this year. He has averaged nearly 16 carries per game in his career, however, and may be asked to carry more of a load now that Tom Brady is no longer under center. But his upside is limited by two roadblo cks: the presence of James White, Rex Burkhead, and Damien Harris, and his complete lack of involvement in the passing game. Michel has just 31 targets and 19 receptions over his 29 career games. In standard scoring leagues, there's a chance he may be slightly undervalued, but it would be hard to rely on him as anything more than a bench player in or half- or full-PPR leagues.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 I've had 475 total touches in my first 2 years despite missing 3 games, but have finished as RB28, and 29 in those 2 years. Who am I? And why am I so bad?
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mostert had 952 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns in a season that saw him emerge as the lead back in the RBBC at the end of the regular season and in the playoffs. He is not going to be a bell cow back, but the lead back in this RBBC is worth RB2 value.
