Tevin Coleman Fantasy Outlook Drops Despite Matt Breida Injury Update

Tevin Coleman has been a somewhat frustrating player to own in fantasy football this season. He's already missed two games due to an ankle injury, and he's been held below 50 rushing yards in six of his nine games, including in each of his last four.

It looked like Coleman was in a pretty good spot in Week 12 though, as Matt Breida was inactive, and the Green Bay Packers' defense had looked vulnerable lately, but he largely underwhelmed on "Sunday Night Football."

Coleman did manage to find the end zone on a two-yard rush, but he was otherwise held to 49 yards from scrimmage on 13 touches. Against a Green Bay defense that has surrendered 125.5 rushing yards per game, the seventh-worst total in the league, Coleman's fantasy owners were likely hoping for a better outing.

In fact, Coleman was actually outplayed by Raheem Mostert, who turned seven touches into 67 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.

Coleman still appears to be the clear lead back in San Francisco, and he looks safe to use as a solid RB2 going forward. But he might not have quite the week-to-week ceiling that we thought he did prior to Week 12.
