Matt Breida returns to practice, George Kittle gets maintenance day

The 49ers are back at practice preparing for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. We break down the fantasy football implications of their Wednesday injury report.

The San Francisco 49ers are getting healthier of late, and they’re hoping to get a key part of their ground game back in Week 13. Running back Matt Breida was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday’s practice. Breida sprained his ankle in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks and had not practiced since.

Meanwhile, tight end George Kittle got the day off from practice. He returned last week from a knee injury, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he’ll be getting maintenance days to keep him ready, per team reporter Keiana Martin.

Fantasy football analysis: 49ers RB Matt Breida, TE George Kittle

Kittle proved last week he is a must start if active. There’s nothing to think about with him.

If Breida plays, he would move back ahead of Raheem Mostert as the complement to Tevin Coleman. Breida serves as a regular pairing with Coleman and is worth a flex start in deeper leagues, particularly in PPR leagues. We’ll track him the rest of the week to see how his status evolves.
