Jacob Wayne
Lineups
I'm not sure what to make of the 49ers' backfield. On the one hand, behind this elite offensive line and with Kyle Shanahan as the coach, one of their running backs should be great for fantasy. Raheem Mostert is the starter and played great in Week 1, but I'm not totally sold. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon are going to factor in more and more as the season goes on. The Jets' run defense actually performed pretty well in Week 1 considering they were down for the entirety of the game, and this is a worse matchup than you might think. Mostert is a fine RB2 start, but I don't see him producing the same numbers as last week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Mostert is a fine RB3 play this week and he always has the chance to break off a huge run, but this Jets defense just held the Buffalo RBs in check last week. Mostert certainly has upside, but it's hard to see a path for him to finish as a top-20 option outside of a big play. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In the first game since Mostert's contract extension, we saw him total 37 snaps compared to 19 for McKinnon and six for Coleman. Not only was it the snaps, but more importantly, the opportunities. Mostert 20, McKinnon 8, Coleman 6. To be fair, the 49ers didn't even know if Coleman was going to play last week due to the air quality concerns colliding with his asthma. This Kyle Shanahan coached backfield took all sorts of twists and turns last year, so this week will mean a lot. If Mostert gets a similar workload, I'll be all in. The Jets are going to present a tough matchup, though. Since Gregg Williams became the defensive coordinator at the start of the 2019 season, they've allowed a miniscule 1,101 yards on 353 carries, which amounts to 3.12 yards per carry, which is the second-lowest mark in the league over that time. There were only six running backs who totaled at least 15 carries against them last year, and all of those running backs finished as the RB20 or better, so that's the magic number. It is worth noting that the Jets defense has lost some of their key playmakers over the last few months as linebacker C.J. Mosley opted out, they traded away safety Jamal Adams, and now linebacker Avery Williamson was forced to miss Week 1 with a hamstring injury. This is strength against strength, but I'm guessing the 49ers run game will prevail, even if it's nothing massive. Mostert comes with some risk of this backfield returning to 2019 form but should probably be played as a high-end RB3 until proven otherwise. It helps knowing he saw five targets last week due to all the injuries to receivers, which raises his floor. Coleman didn't play enough snaps to even consider him this week, though as we've seen before, things can change quickly. Fortunately, the matchup is bad enough where you don't even need to consider him. McKinnon also saw five targets last week, a number that can actually increase in Week 2 considering how good the Jets are against the run. There were 17 running backs who totaled 20-plus receiving yards against the Jets last year, including 10 who totaled at least 36 receiving yards. If you're looking for a last-minute replacement for someone like Le'Veon Bell, McKinnon is in the RB4 conversation. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mostert had 151 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown against the Cardinals last week and he was the back that saw the most touches in the 49ers RBBC. Mostert should be a solid RB2 with RB1 upside.
