2018 Fantasy Outlook
An undrafted rookie free agent last year, Breida fell into the No. 2 spot on the 49ers' depth chart early last season and held his own. Checking in at 5-10, 190, the scatback ran a blistering 4.37 40-yard dash at his pro day, and while his speed didn't translate into huge gains as a rookie - he managed only two runs of 20 yards or more on 105 carries - he did show the toughness to run between the tackles on occasion while posting 4.4 YPC. With Jerick McKinnon out for the season, opportunity knocks for both Breida and Alfred Morris. Look for the 49ers to ride the hot hand out of the gate, but McKinnon's injury transforms Breida from a late-round flyer to a vital part of an offense with some upside. Read Past Outlooks

Breida (shoulder/ankle) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Though coach Kyle Shanahan labeled Breida as "doubtful" early last week, the running back turned the comment on its head, gaining clearance to play Monday at Green Bay while battling a lingering shoulder injury and sprained ankle. Looking spry as ever, Breida led 49ers running backs in carries (14) and offensive snaps (27 of 57), but the real surprise was Raheem Mostert (12 rushes, 23 offensive snaps) overtaking Alfred Morris (no touches on one offensive snap) as the No. 2 back. Breida's health appears to be in a better place than a week ago, but his status should continue to be monitored as the weekend approaches.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The undrafted rookie out of Georgia Southern was picked up to provide depth at the running back position for the 49ers. Standing at just 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, what Breida lacks in size he makes up for in the speed department (4.37 40 time during his pro day). He emerged as a surprise favorite for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart late in the preseason, with his spot seemingly confirmed when the Niners cut Tim Hightower and placed Joe Williams on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Breida profiles as Carlos Hyde's top backup -- a role that could potentially include regular passing-down snaps.
