Matt Breida has been ruled out for his second straight game, which doesn't come as much of a surprise after being considered doubtful earlier on Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers' backfield is still deep though, and Tevin Coleman should continue serving as the lead back while Raheem Mostert stands to see a boost in fantasy outlook heading into a Week 12 "Sunday Night Football" matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

Mostert only turned in 27 yards and no touchdowns in Week 11, but his workload still leaves room for optimism this week. He was on the field for 48 percent of the 49ers' offensive snaps (compared to 51 percent for Coleman) and saw six carries plus three targets.

The Packers' defense has also been highly susceptible to production from RBs this year, giving up the NFL's third-most fantasy points per game at the position.

Mostert doesn't offer a great ceiling as the clear No. 2 in the backfield behind Coleman, but a nearly even split of snaps in a great matchup still gives Mostert plenty of value in one of the NFL's most run-heavy offenses. He should be considered a fantasy football player to start for Week 12's "Sunday Night Football."
