Trey Sermon's benching last week has to go down as one of the most unforeseen and mysterious actions we've seen by a NFL head coach in a long time. We still don't have complete clarity on why Sermon allegedly struggled in camp and the pre-season because he certainly looked like the second best option in this backfield during the NFL pre-season. Regardless, Sermon's now back in the fantasy football conversation after Mostert landed on the IR this week. We certainly cannot play Sermon this week due to the unknowns, but I would not be shocked at all to see Sermon lead this 49ers team in carries when it's all said and done.
