49ers draft RB Coffee

The Niners want to run the ball more often under coordinator Jimmy Raye, so it’s no surprise that they took a running back. A physical back, Glen Coffee could turn into a viable handcuff for fantasy owners who land Frank Gore.

This is a situation to watch, though, as more and more teams are now utilizing backfield committees to keep their runners fresh over what is a long and punishing season.

If Coffee impresses the coaching staff, he could steal some looks from Gore in short-yardage and goal-line situations.
