28-Year-Old Running BackRB
San Francisco 49ers
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The 49ers backfield had a lot of mouths to feed last year, but Mostert announced early he wasn't going to be lost in the shuffle. A 151-yard eruption in Week 2 made him a waiver-wire darling, and while he had ups and downs afterward, by season's end he had moved to the top of the depth chart in Kyle Shanahan's RB-friendly offense. Mostert found the end zone at least once in every game Weeks 12 to 17, piling up 515 scrimmage yards and eight total scores in those six games, before sending the Packers home in the NFC championship game with 220 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Not bad for a guy who was typecast as a special teams player and bounced through five organizations in his first three NFL seasons after going undrafted out of Purdue. Mostert's best asset is his electric speed in the open field - he runs a 4.34 40 - and no back in the league turned a larger percentage of his carries into gains of at least 15 yards. He even flashed a bit of power when necessary, ranking 18th among 46 qualified running backs in broken tackle rate and 23rd in average yards after contact (2.2). Mostert said he bulked up this offseason in anticipation of a larger workload this year, though Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon remain on the roster, while Matt Breida was traded to Miami in April. Shanahan's long-standing preference for multi-player backfields makes a bell-cow role for Mostert unlikely, but even a modest increase in volume to 200 carries could allow for a big impact in an efficient offense.

The 49ers and Mostert have restructured his contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
In early July, Mostert requested a trade from 49ers, citing dissatisfaction with the three-year extension he signed last offseason. As the month went on, the two sides worked to amend the situation, and it appears the running back has scored a pay raise on what was a $2.58 million base salary for 2020, as intimated by Mostert's agent, per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. Mostert enters the season after emerging as San Francisco's go-to back in the second half of 2019 and through the team's Super Bowl run. Overall, he led NFL running backs in YPC (5.6) while pacing the 49ers with 1,108 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground (including playoffs) last year. Despite his standing, Mostert is expected to yield some reps to Tevin Coleman and maybe even Jerick McKinnon on a weekly basis.

Mostert was rewarded with a three-year contract this offseason after producing a career-high 261 rushing yards on just 34 carries (7.7 YPC) in addition to his excellent work as a gunner on special teams. The 27-year-old will find himself buried on the depth chart to start the year due to the addition of Tevin Coleman, but his roster spot should be safe on the basis of special teams work. In the unfortunate event that some combination of Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida go down to injury, Mostert would have upside in a larger role based on his brief breakout in 2018.
The journeyman running back worked his way onto San Francisco's 53-man roster last season, mainly contributing on special teams (just six carries in 11 games). Jerick McKinnon's season-ending knee injury does create a slight opening, but the Niners seem prepared to move forward with Alfred Morris and Matt Breida splitting work. Mostert likely will take most of his snaps on special teams.
Already a journeyman running back (five teams in two seasons), Mostert entered camp as a long shot to make the 53-man roster, but an impressive showing in the preseason allowed him to survive cutdown day. He mostly figures to contribute on special teams, though a role on offense isn't entirely out of the question.
Entering his second NFL offseason, Mostert appeared to have turned some heads during the course of Cleveland's offseason program and is reportedly firmly in the mix to compete for the Browns' No. 4 running back gig, if not contend with Glenn Winston for No. 3. Thanks to his speed, Mostert could also secure a role on special teams to boot. Ultimately, Mostert seems poised to earn a place on the Browns' regular season roster and will likely make his biggest impact returning kickoffs.
Mostert went undrafted in May. He’ll get a look during training camp, but he’ll have to leap-frog fellow running back Kenjon Barner for a shot at the 53-man roster. Even then, he’ll hardly see the field.
