What to do with Tevin Coleman, Jarvis Landry injury news in Week 5 fantasy football

The San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns expect to welcome back a pair of key offensive skill position players for Week 5 Monday Night Football. The Browns removed wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the concussion protocol and their final injury report on Friday after he got two straight full participation practices. He enters the game coming off a season-high eight reception, 167 yard performance against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4.

The 49ers have listed running back Tevin Coleman as questionable after he got in three straight limited sessions. Coleman suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 1, and had not practiced since. After the team’s Week 4 bye, Coleman returned to practice this week. After Saturday’s final practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said he was optimistic Coleman would play on Monday.

Fantasy football analysis, Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry

The 49ers are banged up in the secondary, but nickel back K’Waun Williams is healthy for this matchup. Landry will line up in the slot and it could be a fun matchup with Williams. Landry leads the Browns with 328 yards, and is second with 18 receptions on 33 targets. Landry has yet to find the end zone, but he remains a must-start in PPR leagues, and a solid start in standard leagues.

Fantasy football analysis, San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman

The 49ers backfield is looking strong for the team, but has numerous questions for fantasy owners. Matt Breida has been the starter since Coleman went down, but Raheem Mostert has been a solid reserve. Even Jeff Wilson has turned into a touchdown vulture. Wilson likely draws the short straw and will be inactive in Week 5. Even if Coleman is the starter, we’ll see a lot of rotation this week. I suspect Coleman and Breida come close to splitting touches, while Mostert gets some decent work behind them. It’s not a great fantasy situation, but Coleman and Breida offer some starting value while we sort this out.
