There's been some positive buzz on 49ers RB Trey Sermon this month, but insider Matt Maiocco believes he's on the roster bubble. "If Sermon were not a third-round pick a year ago, there probably would not be much of a conversation about his status," Maiocco writes. He has RBs Elijah Mitchell, Ty Davis-Price and Jeff Wilson as locks to make the team, with Sermon, JaMycal Hasty and Jordan Mason fighting for the final spot. There's no clear-cut handcuff to Mitchell, but Davis-Price and Wilson are better last-round fliers than Sermon.

The 49ers started RB Trey Sermon in the backfield in Saturday's 2nd preseason game against the Vikings, but 2 other RBs also saw touches on the team's 1st drive. San Francisco sat Elijah Mitchell and Jeff Wilson Jr., along with QB Trey Lance and some other starters. Sermon led the RBs who did play, but JaMycal Hasty and Tyrion Davis-Price joined him for 1 carry apiece amid the team's 4-play 1st drive. Sermon was the only RB to garner touches over the next 2 drives and finished the 1st half with 5 carries and 2 targets. vs. 2 total opportunities for each of his teammates. None generated much yardage in that span. Even if Sermon enters the season ahead of Davis-Price and Hasty on the depth chart, he might still sit 3rd behind Mitchell and Wilson in touch distribution. The primary takeaway here should probably be that this remains a crowded backfield.

NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco says 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan "appears determined to deploy more of a backs-by-committee approach" this season. That would obviously hurt the touch count for RB Elijah Mitchell, who averaged 18.8 carries per game as a rookie. He also missed 6 games with multiple injuries, though, and needed a knee "clean-up" after the season. San Francisco added RB Tyrion Davis-Price in Round 3 of the NFL Draft and get Jeff Wilson Jr. back to full health after he basically lost 2020 to a meniscus tear. Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty also remain but will likely need to fight their way into contention for touches. Mitchell is going RB24 in FFPC drafting and RB23 on Underdog right now. That's not a terrible range, but we're not excited about his 2022 outlook -- especially in full-PPR formats.

The 49ers have ruled RB Elijah Mitchell out for Thursday night's game at Tennessee with his knee injury. Jeff Wilson Jr. dominated backfield work in Sunday's win over Atlanta, with Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo the only 2 other Niners to handle more than 1 carry.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bengals. RB Jeff Wilson (knee) isn’t listed on the final injury report after practicing all week. He should operate as San Francisco’s lead back this weekend, with RB JaMycal Hasty in a change-of-pace, pass-catching role.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (knee) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. His knee flared up during last weekend's game, but it looks like he has a shot to play vs. the Bengals on Sunday. Wilson and RB JaMycal Hasty should be owned in all fantasy leagues with RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) iffy for Week 14.

7:34pm EST 12/8/21

The 49ers signed RB Brian Hill to the practice squad. It's only noteworthy because RBs Elijah Mitchell (knee, concussion) and Jeff Wilson (knee) are iffy for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. If they're out for that one, JaMycal Hasty figures to serve as lead back, with Hill potentially the #2.

ESPN's Adam Schefter that 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell had an MRI that showed knee "irritation," in the words of HC Kyle Shanahan. We'll see what that means through the practice week. At the least, it adds a complication to a player already in the concussion protocol. Make sure you have insurance behind Mitchell heading into the weekend.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is in the concussion protocol, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Mitchell was checked for a head injury during Sunday's loss to Seattle but was cleared to re-enter. He then reported concussion symptoms on Monday morning. We'll track his progress through the protocol this week. RB Jeff Wilson had his knee "flare up" on Sunday, per Shanahan, so he's also iffy for Week 14. JaMycal Hasty is the only healthy RB on San Francisco's roster right now.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report and is set to return for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. Hasty isn’t a fantasy option but might steal passing-down work from RB Elijah Mitchell.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week and still in a non-contact jersey on Friday, according to The Athletic’s David Lombardi. We’ll look for an update on Mitchell on Sunday morning. Vikings-49ers doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET. RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out again.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. So much for that early-week optimism after Mitchell’s Tuesday finger surgery. RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) is out for Week 11, leaving San Francisco with RBs Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon. Sermon might actually get on the field for the first time since Week 5, but Wilson should operate as the clear lead back. He’s a RB2 with upside.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan still expects him to play vs. Jacksonville this weekend, despite undergoing surgery on Tuesday. But Mitchell owners should still be making backup plans for Week 11. RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) also missed Wednesday's practice.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell fractured a finger in Monday night's win over the Rams, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Mitchell will undergo surgery, but the team hopes he can practice on Wednesday and isn't ruling him out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. We'll keep an eye on Mitchell's status, as well as JaMycal Hasty, who missed Week 10 with an ankle injury. RB Jeff Wilson, who carried 10 times in his 2021 debut on Monday night, could be in line for lead duties this weekend.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Rams. Hasty leads 49ers RBs with 18 targets this season, so his absence opens up some work in the passing game. It's a small boost to RB Elijah Mitchell's Week 10 outlook. RBs Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon also figure to be active for San Francisco on Monday night but aren't fantasy options.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Hasty is in danger of missing Monday night's vs. the Rams. His absence could get RBs Jeff Wilson and/or Trey Sermon on the field -- but it'd also likely mean extra passing-down work for RB Elijah Mitchell.
