Coach Kyle Shanahan said he envisions using Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida on the field at the same time next season.
Shanahan said he planned on using McKinnon and Breida at the same time this season, but McKinnon of course tore his ACL before those plans came to fruition. Since it was a "clean" tear and it happened in early September, McKinnon should be ready well ahead of the start of the 2019 season, but Breida's emergence has complicated McKinnon's 2019 outlook. The 49ers' usage of McKinnon and Breida will be a storyline going into next year's training camp, but Shanahan has made it clear that using both of them on the field together is in his plans.

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.
