Around the NFL: McKinnon out for season

A couple of weeks ago, with Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida nursing injuries, Alfred Morris came out of free agency and turned in a strong rushing performance against the Colts: 17 carries, 84 yards.

Around the NFL: 49ers sign Alfred Morris

I am an Alfred Morris fan. He made us look good back in 2012. He was just a sixth-round pick, but he worked his way up the depth chart in August. I remember a home game with the Colts, when they trotted him out with the first-unit offense and he really nailed down the starting job. We jacked him way up on our board, all of our subscribers drafted him, and he delivered big time, running for 1,613 yards and 13 TDs.  more »

Factoid: Jerick McKinnon

With Jerick McKinnon, you either believe or you don't. Either you see him as an overpaid, overrated guy who never really took advantage of his opportunities in Minnesota, or you see the centerpiece of San Francisco's offense in 2018, one of the league's few three-down backs. We won't know for sure until the games start.   more »

Factoid: 49ers running backs

I wonder if Matt Breida will be San Francisco’s leading rusher. He was impressive with his limited opportunities last year, and I think the 49ers will need somebody who can lug the ball.  more »
