Coleman was the Fantasy Football MVP in Week 8, can he repeat in Week 9?

In Week 8, 49ers running back Tevin Coleman had one of the best performances we've seen from any player this season. During his match-up against the Panthers, Coleman rushed for 105 yards and scored four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving). FOUR SCORES!!!

In Week 9, Coleman and the 49ers take on NFC West rivals the Arizona Cardinals who are allowing opponents to rush for an average of 103 yards per game. Last week, the Cardinals got trampled by Saints running back Latavius Murray who picked up 105 yards on the ground and 55 yards through the air. 

Coleman will likely have the majority of backfield duties all to himself on Thursday night. Teammates Matt Breida is dealing with an ankle injury, Raheem Mostert has a quad strain, and Jeff Wilson suffered a stinger. Even if one of those banged up backs is active for Week 9, Coleman will be the most involved. San Francisco has the Number Two ranked rushing attack in the NFL with an astounding average of 181 yards per game. The Ravens are ranked Number One thanks to 204 yard per game average. 

Jim Cramer thinks Beyond Meat is overvalued and instead of being valued at $5 billion it should carry about a $2 billion evaluation. Which may explain why the stock fell nearly 15% this week. 

Can Coleman outproduce Beyond Meat's stock price? Let us know which side you pick in the comments below.
