San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida has been somewhat of a fantasy football rollercoaster this season, but recent injury issues have left more downhill slides than uphill climbs. 

And, surprise, surprise, he's active this week.  

Sunday's news of his status against the Arizona Cardinals was much of the same. Breida has reportedly been listed as an active option for fantasy but on a pitch count of sorts when it comes to total usage. 

In other words, fantasy owners should proceed with caution considering the nature of his ankle injury that's significantly hindered his fantasy production in recent weeks.
