Tevin Coleman expected to lead 49ers in touches?

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area expects Tevin Coleman to lead San Francisco running backs in touches this year.

Fantasy Impact

Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida are sitting out OTAs, leaving every first-team rep to Coleman. There are also concerns about McKinnon's rehab, which would give Coleman more time to establish himself. This is a crowded backfield for fantasy purposes, but Coleman appears to have the upper hand at the moment.

Tevin Coleman could be 49ers’ short-yardage back

49ers coach Kyle Shannahan hinted that Tevin Coleman could function as the team’s “short-yardage” back this season.

Fantasy Impact

San Francisco has a plethora of running backs following the Coleman signing. Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida, and Raheem Mostert all remain on the roster. This likely means several backs will get a good amount of touches this year, but getting goal-line touches would make Coleman the one to own.

Tevin Coleman heading to 49ers on two-year deal

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Tevin Coleman and the 49ers have come to terms on a two-year, $10 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Coleman was linked mostly to the Jets over the last couple of weeks but they filled their running back need with Le’veon Bell. Coleman was arguably the second best back on the market despite his disappointing contract year. The ex-Falcons RB rushed for 800 yards and four TDs last season while adding an additional 276 yards (and five more scores) through the air. He should do well with Kyle Shannahan since the 49ers coach had him when he was in Atlanta. Coleman could settle as an upside RB2 pick in off-season fantasy drafts. It’s unclear what San Francisco plans to do with Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida now.

Tevin Coleman scores in Week 17 win

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman rushed eight times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught his only target for nine yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Coleman had a very erratic season overall, playing well at times, but faded in the second half. However, he played well in his final three games, which bodes well for his value in free agency. Coleman has likely played his final down in Atlanta.

Tevin Coleman to play through groin injury

Tevin Coleman will play Week 17 despite his groin injury.

Fantasy Impact

The Falcons have said that Coleman will play Week 17 despite the injury. While he's likely heading to free agency in 2019, he'll suit up again for Atlanta and fantasy owners against the Bucs this weekend. He's been a risky play with a low floor and high ceiling this season, and that will continue in the season finale.
