Raheem Mostert “almost certainly” will be San Francisco 49ers’ lead back if healthy

San Francisco 49ers beat reporter Matt Barrows believes running back Raheem Mostert will “almost certainly be the 49ers’ leading runner” if healthy (per Matt Barrows)

Fantasy Impact: Rookie Trey Sermon is getting plenty of buzz in fantasy football and rightfully so. However, overlooking Mostert this year might come back to bite fantasy managers if he can remain in the field for full 17 game season. Mostert rushed for 521 yards and 2 touchdowns on 104 carries in 8 games last year. Sermon is currently our RB25 while Mostert is down at 32. Those rankings might flip if this news continues to come out of 49ers’ camp.
