It's going to be odd to have all three of these running backs back on the field, but that's what we should be expecting in Week 12. Unfortunately, we have zero clue about how Kyle Shanahan will use them. Mostert was the surefire starter through the four games he did play, but do his touches get dialed back now that multiple injuries have happened? Shanahan has always had an affinity for Coleman despite his inefficiency. And while McKinnon has played well in spurts, they clearly don't want him in the primary ball carrying role. This isn't a great matchup for timeshares, as the Rams have faced just 24.4 running back touches per week. In that Week 6 matchup this year, they all combined for 120 yards on 32 carries (3.75 yards per carry) while chipping in with another four receptions for 21 yards. That's a lot of volume but not a lot of production, which has been the case for most running backs as the Rams are allowing the third-fewest fantasy points per weighted opportunity. Provided Mostert returns, he should be the top play, but he'd be stuck in the high-end RB3 territory as someone who may be eased back in. Coleman's inefficiency combined with the Rams efficiency amounts to almost zero upside, so he's not a recommended option. McKinnon is a better play than Coleman, but we haven't seen him get many touches with Mostert and Coleman in the lineup, which makes him a hail-mary RB4-type option who you hope gets it done through the air.

Raheem Mostert finds the endzone in return from injury

Raheem Mostert rushed 16 times for 43 yards and a score while adding two receptions for zero yards during the 49ers' 23-20 win over the Rams'.

Fantasy Impact

Mostert was easily inserted as the 49ers' lead back after missing the last five games. He did lose a fumble in the third quarter but his 18 total touches was an encouraging sign. His workload should ramp up in the coming weeks and he should be considered a strong RB2 just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Mostert and the 49ers' get the Bills' in Week 13.
