Matt Breida – RB
Matt Breida is an exciting addition to the Miami Dolphins but is really all that? Arriving in the NFL in 2917, Breida has played his entire career with the 49’ers but a draft-day trade has him dressed in Aqua and Orange for the 2020 season.
Breida is on the final year of his rookie contract and the Dolphins are in no hurry to extend him. In fact, the Dolphins earlier said they would wait a bit before making that decision on his future. So why if he is so good as many claim, will the Dolphins not get him locked up now?
Well, for starters, Breida has only rushed for more than 600 yards in a season one time. That was an 814-yard effort two years ago. He has carried the ball 381 times in his career for a total of 1,902 yards.
The upside here is that Breida is actually averaging five yards a carry but in his three seasons, he has only six touchdowns on the ground, he has four more through the air. In the passing game, Breida has 561 yards on 67 receptions and this is where he could be good for the Dolphins.
Breida is an all-around solid player but the hype surrounding his arrival should be tempered as most relate to his unbelievable speed. This may be more on the shoulders of Chan Gailey however, if he can use him the right way, Breida will be far from overrated.
