Matt Breida Week 3 Outlook - Giants at 49ers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Breida likely gets the starting nod this week with Saquon Barkley injured. He could lose some work to Gary Brightwell, so don't look at Breida as a locked-in workhorse in the Barkley mold. This is a brutal matchup for Breida, who will work behind an offensive line that's 22nd in yards before contact per attempt. The 49ers have given up the fourth-lowest missed tackles allowed per attempt, the third-fewest missed tackles, and the seventh-lowest yards after contact per attempt. Breida is not a bet I want to make on talent overcoming a rough situation. He has never crested 3.0 yards after contact per attempt in his career, and his breakaway run rate has dropped in each of the last three seasons. Week 3 Positional Value: RB3
