Tevin Coleman Joins Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida in 49ers 3-Headed Fantasy Headache

Tevin Coleman entered free agency as one of the more intriguing fantasy-related options. However, our dreams were dashed when he decided to sign with his former offensive coordinator in Atlanta and current 49ers head coach, Kyle Shanahan. From a scheme standpoint, it doesn’t get much better than a Coleman-Shanahan reunion. I mean, Shanahan was crucial in drafting the former Hoosier to the Falcons. Unfortunately, Coleman now becomes another head in a disastrous three-headed fantasy headache — joining last year’s free agent pickup Jerick McKinnon and the talented Matt Breida. It’s still possible that the 49ers deal McKinnon, or Breida continues to be made of glass, but as of right now, it’s one of the more disgusting stables in fantasy.

What makes this different than most committees is that all three backs possess a similar skill-set, where they can play all three-downs. Instead of complimenting each other, they all sort of overlap each other. Still though, Coleman has the most experience in Shanahan’s zone blocking scheme, while McKinnon is coming off a torn ACL and Breida was literally hurt every single week of 2018. If you decide to take a gamble on one of the three, roll the dice with Coleman. His upside is enormous if McKinnon is traded or if he loses a step in year-one of ACL recovery.

Right now, The Wolf has Coleman ranked as his RB31, McKinnon right behind as his RB33 and Breida is the clear tumbler, down at RB38. It’ll be a crucial camp to monitor in San Francisco.
