The San Francisco 49ers backfield is always a bit of a mystery when it comes to figuring out which player or players belong in fantasy football lineups. But this week, it is apparently safe to make a bet on Jerick McKinnon as the top option for fantasy when his team squares off against the Saints.

Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers RBs JaMycal Hasty, Jerick McKinnon

McKinnon led the team with 12 carries last week, rolling up 52 yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Packers. He also continued his role in the passing game, catching three of four targets.

The Saints have been pretty effective against running backs this season, and if the odds markers are to be believed—the Saints are favored by 10—the 49ers might not be able to run the ball much late in this game. But McKinnon’s role in the passing game keeps his value up.

Hasty saw his workload fall off a cliff last week, with just five total touches. Barring injury, you can leave him on the bench for now.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Jerick McKinnon. Sit JaMycal Hasty.
