Salvon Ahmed
21-Year-Old Running BackRB
 Free Agent  
2020 Fantasy Outlook
After going undrafted out of Washington, Ahmed shrewdly signed with the 49ers, perhaps the best possible spot for an overlooked running back to make an impact. While he showed plenty of speed and elusiveness in college, Ahmed's lack of power, vision and indecisiveness when hitting the hole kept him from being a consistent producer. He did show solid receiving skills, but he'll need to significantly improve his effort level in pass protection if he wants to see significant work on passing downs in the NFL. Ahmed is something of a project, but in a Kyle Shanahan offense that always seems to find ways to get its backs the ball in space, his strengths could be accentuated and his flaws minimzed. The depth chart remains loaded even after Matt Breida's departure, but as Raheem Mostert showed last year, backs who put in the work and flash when they get a chance are rewarded in San Francisco.

Ahmed will stick with the franchise in a practice squad role, per Josh Tolentino of The Athletic. He'll compete with fellow Washington product Myles Gaskin for the first spot in line should an injury befall any of the running backs on the 53-man roster.
