Matt Breida missed the 49ers' Week 14 game against the Broncos after re-aggravating an ankle injury he suffered the week prior against the Seahawks, and his status for Week 15 is currently up in the air.

Listed as questionable heading into Wednesday's practice, Breida is a 50-50 shot, at best, to play against the Seahawks, opening up the door for rookie Jeff Wilson Jr. again this weekend.

And Wilson has taken advantage of his limited opportunities this season. Last week, he racked up 23 carries for 90 yards in the 49ers' win over the Broncos. Two weeks ago, against the same Seahawks team he would face this Sunday, Wilson had 15 carries for 61 yards along with eight catches for 73 yards.

If Breida can't go, Wilson is sure to see a bulk of the team's carries, giving him RB2 upside. Even if Breida does play, the coaching staff could limit his carries as the 49ers are out of playoff contention anyway.

Obviously, check the injury report leading up to the 4:05 p.m. EST kickoff and if Wilson fills in as the 49ers' No. 1 back again this weekend, he has enough upside to be locked into your semi-final lineup against a Seattle team that gives up the 14th most fantasy points to the RB position this season. At worst, he's a FLEX play that could help get you into your fantasy finals next week.
