2021 RTSports Outlook

Coleman showed some flashes of big things his first season with the 49ers, but was more miss than hit throughout the year. He had 11 games with fewer than 50-rushing yards. Coleman was 39th overall in fantasy running back scoring. HIs biggest plus was finding the end zone, scoring seven times. He had just 724 total yards, though, and averaged just 4.0 yards per carry. His numbers were actually down some compared to his production with the Falcons. Coleman is likely No. 2 or 3 on the depth chart his year but will get his weekly touches in this run-heavy offense. Coleman has elite speed and can make a lot of plays to the outside. He also catches the ball well. He will make a lot of plays in open space. He isn't much of an inside runner but has made strides in that area since entering the league.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Last season broke a streak of three straight seasons in the top 25 in fantasy running back scoring for Coleman. He has potential for the big game but shouldn't be drafted as anything more than a No. 3 or 4 fantasy back. A season similar to last year seems about right for Coleman, especially after Raheem Mostert emerged for the team late in the year. Look for around 700 total yards, five touchdowns and 30 receptions.

RotoBaller's Outlook

49ers running back Tevin Coleman seems to be a forgotten man during this offseason. He was the lead back in SF going into last season but injured his ankle during a Week 1 bout against Tampa Bay's stout run defense. Coleman returned in Week 5 and blasted a poor Browns' defense for 97 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries then dismantled the Panthers' league-worst run defense in Week 8 but just could not provide consistently during the rest of the season. High-ankle sprains tend to linger and unfortunately, it is fair to assume that Coleman was hampered by it during the year given that he struggled to run in the back half of the year. He hardly averaged more than 3 yards per carry past Week 8 and saw his carry numbers dwindle to the single-digits. Coleman had lost the starting job to Raheem Mostert who is now getting selected roughly 50 picks ahead of him. While Mostert surely earned the starting role for 2020, there is no guarantee that the late-breakout RB maintains that level of production and takes full control of that backfield. If Coleman can prove early-on that he is still more than competent, his double-digit round ADP will prove to be a steal given that running back is extremely scarce. He could even regain the starting role mid-season.

Player Notes

Free-agent RB Tevin Coleman (49ers) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $2 million with the New York Jets on Wednesday, March 24.

Fantasy Spin: It makes sense from the standpoint that Coleman will remain in the same kind of offense he operated in with the 49ers, as new offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur was San Francisco's passing game coordinator while Coleman was there. Unfortunately, Coleman showed very little consistency with the Niners when he was healthy and will running behind a less talented offensive line in New York. He couldn't have picked a much better landing spot for potential playing time though, as he only has La'Mical Perine, Ty Johnson, and Josh Adams to compete with at the moment.

The New York Jets signed veteran free-agent running back Tevin Coleman to a one-year deal worth up to $20 million on Wednesday, according to a source. The former San Francisco 49ers running back will reunite with head coach Robert Saleh, who was previously the defensive coordinator in San Francisco. Coleman will complement La'Mical Perine, who had 295 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie last year behind Frank Gore. The 27-year-old Coleman has battled plenty of injuries in recent seasons, but he could see a significant workload if Perine isn't quite ready for a large role. Coleman played in just eight games (one start) in 2020, but he carried the ball 137 times for 544 yards and six touchdowns while adding 21 catches for 180 yards and another score for the 49ers in 2019. If healthy, Coleman could be a decent fantasy sleeper in what should be an improved Jets offense.

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman saw a limited role in the team's 20-12 Week 16 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Coleman rushed the ball twice for just three yards. He caught his only target, but gained zero yards on the reception. Jeff Wilson Jr. was the team's featured ball-carrier this week, carrying the ball 22 times for 183 yards. Meanwhile, Jerick McKinnon was the team's most active pass-catching back with three catches on four targets. Coleman is second in the pecking order for handoffs right now, but he's not likely to see much work while Wilson is active and effective.

Dec 23 3:40pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman might have an opportunity for extra work in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals now that the team will be without Raheem Mostert (ankle), their No. 1 back. However, it's tough to bank on. Jeff Wilson Jr. figures to be the team's primary rusher this week, and Jerick McKinnon should see most of the work in the passing game, leaving Coleman without a defined role. Coleman logged just six snaps in Week 15 while McKinnon logged 14 and Wilson logged 39. Mostert played 25 snaps last week, so there will be extra opportunities to go around, but Coleman might only receive a few of those extra opportunities. He shouldn't be considered as a starting option in most fantasy leagues in Week 16.

Nov 29 2:43pm ET

The San Francisco 49ers have declared CB Ahkello Witherspoon, S Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, RB Tevin Coleman, OG Tom Compton, DB Chris Edwards and DB K'Waun Williams inactive for Week 12.

From TheHuddle

Nov 27 9:03pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 27, but has been ruled out for Week 12.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation because Raheem Mostert could return in the near future. He would be a starting option in all leagues if he plays. Jerick McKinnon may see extra touches with Coleman out and could be a flex option in some leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 27 6:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) and CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams. OL Tom Compton (concussion) was added to the injury report and did not practice Friday, Nov. 27; he has been ruled out as well. RB Tevin Coleman (knee) was limited in practice all week and has also been ruled out. LB Azeez Al-Shaair (illness), LB Dre Greenlaw (illness) and TE Jordan Reed (illness) did not practice for a second consecutive day Friday and are listed as questionable. DT Javon Kinlaw (non-injury) was limited in practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. DL Arik Armstead (non-injury), OL Hroniss Grasu (non-injury) and WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) practiced in full Friday and were removed from the injury report.

Nov 27 6:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the division-rival Rams. Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) will be activated from Injured Reserve on Saturday and are expected to play on Sunday, joining Jerick McKinnon in a crowded backfield. Mostert was the leader of this backfield before his injury, but head coach Kyle Shanahan could change things up in what is becoming a big headache for fantasy managers. Coleman may not even have much of a role when he returns to action, making him droppable for better options in shallow leagues. If Mostert is active, he'll be a shaky WR3/flex against a tough Rams defensive line.

From RotoBaller

Nov 27 3:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman (knee) appears to be trending towards making his return to action in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams. His timing is somewhat unfortunate as fellow running back Raheem Mostert (knee) appears on track to make his return this week as well. If both players are active for the game, Mostert will be the team's primary rusher while Coleman and Jerick McKinnon play secondary roles. Coleman is a worthwhile deep league stash as he could have value down the stretch this year, but for now, he shouldn't be trusted as a starting option.

From RotoBaller

Nov 26 8:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Spin: Coleman appears to have a chance to play in Week 12, but fantasy players will have a better idea of his status in the next day or two. He will be part of a committee at running back if he plays and probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 26 6:23pm ET

San Francisco 49ers LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) and CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

DL Arik Armstead (non-injury), RB Tevin Coleman (knee) and WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) were limited. OL Hroniss Grasu (non-injury) practiced in full.

Nov 25 8:23pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Spin: Coleman and Jerick McKinnon will be splitting backfield work until Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson are able to return to the lineup. Both make for a risky FLEX option with McKinnon slightly safer due to more work in the passing game.

From TheHuddle

Nov 15 3:03pm ET

The San Francisco 49ers have declared CB Ahkello Witherspoon, WR Deebo Samuel, S Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, RB Tevin Coleman and DB K'Waun Williams inactive for Week 10.

Nov 13 8:13pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 10.

Fantasy Spin: JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon will share playing time this week with Coleman out of the lineup. Both players could be flex options in deeper fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 13 5:03pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee), LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring), WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints. WR River Cracraft (quad) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as questionable. WR Trent Taylor (back) practiced in full for a second straight day Friday and is also listed as questionable.

From TheHuddle

Nov 12 8:23pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Spin: Coleman likely will miss at least one game because of the injury, so JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon will share most of the playing time at running back. Both have a chance to be flex option in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 12 6:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee), WR River Cracraft (quad), LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring), WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 12. WR Trent Taylor (back) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Nov 11 11:13pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 11, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he is hopeful Coleman will be back for the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams on Nov. 29 after the team's bye.

Fantasy Spin: There was an outside chance Coleman could have returned to lead the 49ers backfield, but instead it appears JaMycal Hasty, Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter will be the three backs for Shanahan against the Rams. McKinnon might be the best of the lot from a fantasy perspective.

From TheHuddle

Nov 11 7:53pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (knee) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Spin: Coleman has a great chance to lead the Niners' backfield with RB Raheem Mostert still sidelined, but he has struggled with his own health all season. He'll be a risky FLEX play if cleared to play.
