Raheem Mostert/Jeff Wilson, RB, San Francisco 49ers
Mostert had nine carries for 40 yards and one catch against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1, as Tevin Coleman left the game with an ankle injury. Coleman is reportedly expected to miss some time and could have a significant injury, so with Jerick McKinnon (knee) on IR again it’s Matt Breida, Mostert and possibly Jeff Wilson getting the carries for San Francisco.
Breida is in line to lead the way, but after him Mostert is presumably first in line for carries in a favorable Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Wilson averaged four yards per carry last season, with notable outings in Week 13 (15 carries for 61 yards; eight receptions for 73 yards) and Week 14 (23 carries for 90 yards) when he had to step in.
Mostert is a more appealing add in all leagues right now, but Wilson is worth a look in deeper leagues.
