The 9ers run blocking is a hell of a lot better than our Fins. There is a reason Breida is averaging 3.7 ypc behind this line, and not the 5+ he averaged in San Fran. Mostert led the league in ypc for SF last year.Breida has put up over 5 ypc over the course of a season before and is averaging roughly the same as Gaskin despite the latter getting far more looks. Breida is certainly the better runner though Gaskin is better in the passing game.
There is room for both but we haven't made much room for Breida.
Gaskin is averaging 3.9 ypc. You don't think he would do better in SF's superior rush scheme?
I don't care how many ypc Breida used to average. Howard has also averaged a much higher ypc in different situations in the past. The question is about what are you doing right now for this team.
Gaskin has been our best overall RB to this point. I'm fine with Breida unseating him if he earns it. But I don't understand why Gaskin isn't getting more appreciation, even if he isn't special.
