NBC Sports Bay Area expects a "hot hand" approach to the 49ers' backfield.

Matt Breida is listed as the starter on the Niners' post-Jerick McKinnon depth chart, but it is probably Alfred Morris who will take the lead on early downs. Certain game plans will undoubtedly call for greater Breida involvement, as will playing from behind or hurrying up. Morris is the back to own but there will be weeks where Breida out-snaps him.

Beat writer Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area expects Alfred Morris to lead the Niners' backfield in Jerick McKinnon's absence.

McKinnon suffered a non-contact knee injury at Saturday's practice and appears to be done for the year. In his stead, the Niners will turn to Morris, who shined during the preseason with 89 yards on 19 carries. Morris played under Kyle Shanahan when he was the Redskins' offensive coordinator, so he's already familiar with the Niners' scheme. Matt Breida, who missed a chunk of camp while tending to a separated shoulder, showed flashes as a rookie but is better suited for a change-of-pace role. Morris isn't much of a pass-catcher, so having Breida spell him on passing downs would be an ideal arrangement. Both players need to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Morris makes for an interesting Week 1 GPP play based on volume alone at near min price across the industry, but expectations should be tempered due to the Vikings' stout defense and Morris's limited skill set.

Jerick McKinnon (calf) was seen taking part in conditioning drills at Tuesday's practice.

He was joined by backfield-mate Matt Breida, who is coming off a shoulder injury. Beat writer Matt Barrows of The Athletic noticed both players getting reps on the blocking shed. It's unclear if either will be ready for Week 1 against the Vikings, though at least they're trending in the right direction. Alfred Morris served as the Niners' lead back in last week's dress rehearsal.
