  • Elijah Mitchell Dealing With A Hamstring Issue

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (hamstring) may miss the entire preseason. The 24-year-old is currently dealing with a hamstring issue, although he's forecasted to be ready for Week 1. He was the team's most productive back last season, finishing the year with 963 yards and five rushing touchdowns off 207 carries, so being without him wouldn't be ideal, especially with Trey Lance still developing. Nevertheless, if Mitchell can't suit up for the season opener, Kyle Shanahan may lean on Jeff Wilson Jr., Trey Sermon, and rookie Tyrion Davis-Price to collectively carry the load. The team's second-leading rusher during the 2021-22 campaign, Deebo Samuel, could also be utilized more than usual out of the backfield.

  • Tyrion Davis-Price, Jeff Wilson Jr. Could Be Involved Early

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell will get the first crack at keeping his starting job after setting the franchise record for rushing yards by a rookie in 2021. But the team drafted Tyrion Davis-Price in the third round, re-signed Jeff Wilson Jr. and still has JaMycal Hasty and Trey Sermon in the mix. Ideally, Davis-Price will offer short-yardage and goal-line help with Mitchell handling the bulk of the work. But there are injury concerns with Mitchell, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Davis-Price and Wilson involved early in the season, even if Mitchell remains the starter. Another thing to consider: The Niners have had a different leading rusher in each of head coach Kyle Shanahan's five seasons with the team. As such, Mitchell should be targeted as more of a low-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.

  • Elijah Mitchell To Be Part Of Committee Approach?

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan appears determined to deploy more of a running-back-by-committee approach in 2022, according to NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco. Mitchell put together a strong performance in his rookie season when Raheem Mostert was lost for the season in Week 1, rushing for 963 yards and five touchdowns. But Mitchell missed six games due to injuries, and there are serious concerns about his durability, which is why the Niners drafted Tyrion Davis-Price in the third round. Mitchell had a "clean-up" procedure on his knee in the offseason, and San Fran also has 2021 third-rounder Trey Sermon in the fold. Davis-Price has the talent to make an immediate contribution in his rookie season, and there's also Jeff Wilson Jr., who could be the No. 2 to open the year. Mitchell should be your first target from this backfield as a low-end RB2, but this could be a frustrating situation from a fantasy perspective.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. The Team's No. 2 Back

    If the season began on Tuesday, it would be San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. as the No. 2 behind Elijah Mitchell, even though Wilson missed seven starts due to various injuries in 2021. The 26-year-old looked significantly better in the spring than he did late last season when he was still dealing with the effects of an offseason knee injury. But Wilson will have to hold off Trey Sermon and third-round rookie Tyrion Davis-Price in training camp. San Fran took Davis-Price in this year's draft as running back insurance given all the injuries to the position in recent years. Wilson has a well-round skill set, but he'll be nothing more than a handcuff for Mitchell in deeper leagues in the 49ers' crowded backfield.

  • Elijah Mitchell To Share The Rushing Load In SF?

    San Francisco 49ers' second-year running back Elijah Mitchell emerged as the team's lead back last year, leapfrogging third-rounder Trey Sermon. However, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reported that fantasy managers might need to exercise caution with Mitchell due to the team featuring a different lead back in each of head coach Kyle Shanahan's five years leading the team. They drafted a running back in the third round, selecting Tyrion Davis-Price of LSU. Davis-Price will join Mitchell, Sermon, JaMycal Hasty, and Jeff Wilson Jr. in a once again crowded 49er backfield. Shanahan has spoken highly of Davis-Price, indicating he may see ample snaps to take the rushing burden off of wide receiver Deebo Samuel. "The more guys you can add the better, but kind of the physicality that he brings gives you a chance to have a very physical one-two punch," Shanahan said. "I thought Deebo helped us do that towards the end of last year bringing that in, but you don't want that to be just your one-two punch. You got to bring in some other backs to do that." Mitchell would likely have a much higher ADP if not for the risks of Shanahan pulling some surprise personnel moves.
