The San Francisco 49ers signed running back Jerick McKinnon to a four-year contract worth up to $36.9 million last year, and he has yet to play a meaningful snap for the organization. McKinnon missed the entire 2018 season after tearing his right ACL, and San Francisco put the talented running back on injured reserve over the weekend, derailing his 2019 campaign before it even started. While it’s unfortunate that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers’ offense won’t get to use McKinnon’s versatility early on, San Francisco still appears to be in capable hands with Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman on the roster. Breida tallied 1,075 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns last season with San Francisco, while Coleman recorded 1,076 total yards and nine scores while filling in for an injured Devonta Freeman in Atlanta.

The guide includes SportsLine’s top 2019 Fantasy football late-round sleepers:
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Packers: With Randall Cobb out of town, targets abound after Davante Adams gets his share. Geronimo Allison will likely start on the perimeter opposite Adams. In games without Cobb last year, Valdes-Scantling had a 76 percent snap rate. That much field time with quarterback Aaron Rodgers merits a look in the later rounds.
James Washington, WR, Steelers: Antonio Brown leaves behind a massive 26 percent target market share, a large portion of which could go to Pittsburgh’s 2017 second-round pick, James Washington. JuJu Smith-Schuster’s role will increase, but his 24 percent target share can only rise so much. Washington could see over 100 targets in one of the NFL‘s best offenses.
Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills: From Week 12 on, no quarterback scored more Fantasy points than Josh Allen. He averaged 7.7 rushing attempts in 11 starts last year. Since the 2000 season, there have been 25 quarterbacks to average six rushing attempts in at least 14 games, and Allen is in line to join that group. The average fantasy finish of those players was the seventh-best quarterback.
SportsLine’s Fantasy football 2019 draft guide has also identified a massive bust you need to steer completely clear of. This player is going off the board in the first round in many leagues, but could completely sink your playoff hopes.
