 Burkhead has been banged up lately and serves as little more than a thorn in the side of Sony Michel owners. You can leave him on your bench unless a different Patriots running back is unavailable.

And the beat goes on… Through five games, Breida's touch counts are 15-13-16-14-17. It's clear that Kyle Shanahan wants him to live in that 13-17 touch role in order to maximize his efficiency while keeping him healthy. Tevin Coleman's touch counts are 8-16-20, so he's clearly someone who'll be trusted with a bigger workload when the game calls for it. The Redskins opponents are averaging 67.5 plays per game (5th in NFL), while the 49ers offense is averaging 69.6 plays per game (3rd in NFL). This game should produce tons of plays for the 49ers offense, and in turn, their run game. Due to the increased plays per game, running backs have averaged 31.5 touches per game against the Redskins, which is the second-highest number in football. Knowing that the 49ers pass to run ratio is 44:56 in favor of the run, which easily ranks as the most in the NFL (closest is 47:53), we could see a 40-touch game for the 49ers backfield. Coleman and Breida should split the load here, making the both of them low-end RB2s.
