Welcome to our Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 15 of the 2019 NFL regular season. In this week’s column, we discuss the budding production of San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert, and if it’s sustainable over the final stretch of the fantasy season.

That, and much more below.

Running Back Outlook Week 15

It’s official, you can throw away your Tevin Coleman stock. Coleman has carried the ball a total of nine times over the last two weeks, never exceeding six rushing yards over that span. He was out-touched by Matt Breida last Sunday, while both backs are currently looking up to Raheem Mostert (RB25) atop the 49ers RB pecking order.

Mostert went off for 24.9 fantasy points against the perceived stingy defense of the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. Over the last two weeks of play, Mostert is the second-highest scoring fantasy player at his position. Over his past three games, the former Purdue Boilermaker has averaged 6.9 ypc or more and scored at least one touchdown in each game.

However, while Coleman and Brieda offer very minimal fantasy upside themselves, their presence still manages to have a negative effect on Mostert’s fantasy prospects. Mostert has carried the ball 10 times or fewer in eight of his last nine games.

He will also have to face off with an Atlanta Falcons defense that has not allowed a single running back to exceed 70 yards rushing since their Week 9 bye, while surrendering one lone rushing touchdown. Those games include two meetings each with both Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara.

Injuries to two of the biggest fantasy stars over recent weeks put a number of fantasy owners rosters in limbo. Derrius Guice (RB32) is believed to have an MCL sprain, while Rashaad Penny (RB46) suffered a significant ACL injury this past Sunday. Both players’ availability for not only Week 15, but the remainder of this season is bleak at best. Update: Penny & Guice Out for the Year.
