Jordan Mason Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since spraining an MCL in Week 12. We'll see if he's ready to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. A healthy Mitchell figures to slide back in as San Francisco's #2 RB behind Christian McCaffrey.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) practiced in full on Friday and doesn't have an injury tag in advance of Week 17 vs. the Raiders. Teammate RB Jordan Mason (hamstring) also fully practiced and will be ready for Sunday. Fire up McCaffrey as an RB1 stud per usual.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) once again practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday. Teammate RB Jordan Mason (hamstring) logged limited practice as well. Friday's injury report will shed light on the availability of this pair of backs for Week 17's game vs. the Raiders. We certainly feel better about McCaffrey suiting up considering he's played through this ailment for some time.

Niners RB Christian McCaffrey managed just 46 yards on his 15 carries (3.1 per rush) in Saturday's win over the Commanders. He added just 2 receptions for 12 yards. That matched McCaffrey's low for receptions on the season, and his 2 targets set a new season low. RB Tyrion Davis-Price jumped in for 9 carries and 30 yards as the only other RB to see any touches. McCaffrey and the 49ers get a high-upside matchup with the Raiders in Week 17.

49ers Jordan Mason (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Commanders. He should be available for his usual bit role behind RB Christian McCaffrey.

49ers Jordan Mason (hamstring) was a surprise addition to the team's injury report on Thursday. The rookie logged a limited practice and is now listed as questionable for Saturday's Week 16 game vs. the Commanders. Though he doesn't rank particularly high against a brutally tough Commanders' run defense, Mason has tallied 50+ rushing yards in 3 consecutive games. This injury may mean more down the line than it does now. Something to keep in mind.

Niners RB Christian McCaffrey ran for 119 yards and a TD on 14 carries in Sunday's lopsided win over the Buccaneers. He added 2 catches for 34 yards and another TD on just 3 targets. Jordan Mason operated as the #2 RB one again, carrying 11 times for 56 yards. San Francisco gets Seattle's soft run defense on Thursday night in Week 15.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman was not elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. That leaves rookie RBs Ty Davis-Price and Jordan Mason behind Christian McCaffrey. We'll see how work is divvied between them, but neither is a reliable Week 13 fantasy play. It's certainly possible that McCaffrey just takes on a bunch of the work RB Elijah Mitchell leaves behind.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He went from no practice on Wednesday to limited Thursday to full participation on Friday. McCaffrey is believed to be dealing with knee tendinitis, but we’re not expecting it to significantly impact him in Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins. RB Elijah Mitchell is expected to miss the rest of the regular season with his MCL sprain, leaving some combination of Ty Davis-Price, Jordan Mason and Tevin Coleman behind McCaffrey.

The Athletic's Matt Barrows suggests that 49ers RB Tevin Coleman could help replace RB Elijah Mitchell going forward. Coleman carried 12 times across Weeks 5 and 6 but has been on the practice squad since. We'll see if he's elevated ahead of Week 13 -- and then who's active behind RB Christian McCaffrey for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. Coleman, Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price are all worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday that RB Elijah Mitchell did suffer an MCL sprain Sunday against the Saints. He's expected to miss 6-8 weeks. When Mitchell suffered the same injury to his other knee back in Week 1, he remained out until Week 10. Expect this injury to knock Mitchell out for at least the rest of the regular season. We'll see about the playoffs (for him and the 49ers).

49ers RB Jeff Wilson led the 49ers’ backfield in Week 3, rushing 12 times for 75 yards. He gashed the Broncos for an explosive 37-yard run but averaged 3.4 yards on his 11 other attempts. Deebo Samuel mixed in with 5 carries for 6 yards; Jordan Mason saw only 1 attempt. In total, Wilson handled 73% of the backfield snaps with Elijah Mitchell and Ty Davis-Price sidelined. Wilson did fumble after catching his 3rd pass of the night on San Francisco’s final drive, but we don’t see it changing his role going forward. Next up is a home date with the Rams.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Broncos. He figures to miss multiple weeks with his high-ankle sprain. Jeff Wilson will lead the backfield in Denver, with Jordan Mason and Marlon Mack behind him. We’ll see if RB Tevin Coleman is elevated from the practice squad before kickoff.

The 49ers have promoted RB Marlon Mack from the practice squad. San Francisco has already lost RBs Elijah Mitchell and Ty Davis-Price to multi-week injuries. Jeff Wilson will open Week 3's game vs. the Broncos as the lead back, with Mack and rookie Jordan Mason behind him. Mack hasn't looked like the same player since his 2020 Achilles tear, so we're not optimistic about his chances of making an impact with the 'Niners. He's only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Seahawks, HC Kyle Shanahan said. That injury typically costs guys 4-6 weeks. Davis-Price handled 14 carries behind RB Jeff Wilson's 18 in Week 2. San Francisco is now down to RBs Jordan Mason and Marlon Mack behind Wilson. Mason has been active the first 2 weeks but has yet to play an offensive snap. Mack couldn't make Houston's final roster. Wilson has a good chance to control backfield work until RB Elijah Mitchell returns from his knee injury.

"We'll go with the hot hand," 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday of his Week 2 backfield. He added that RBs Ty Davis-Price and Jordan Mason will compete in practice this week for the #2 RB job. Jeff Wilson will open the Seahawks game as the #1 RB, but as is always the case with Shanahan backfields, it'll be a fluid situation. Davis-Price and Mason are worth stashing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is expected to miss "about 2 months" with the MCL sprain he suffered in Sunday's loss at Chicago. Jeff Wilson Jr. stepped in after Mitchell left the game, though WR Deebo Samuel nearly matched his carry total (9-8). We'd bet on Samuel remaining significantly involved in the run game, which isn't great for his chances of staying healthy. We'd also expect rookie Tyrion Davis-Price to be activated for Week 2, after being a healthy scratch in the opener. RB Jordan Mason was active ahead of him but didn't play a snap on offense. Wilson is the only 49ers RB worth considering for Week 2 use. Don't expect him to land high in our Week 2 rankings when they hit the site Tuesday, however.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is expected to miss "a few weeks (or more)" with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's opener vs. the Bears, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mitchell is undergoing an MRI on Monday to get a full view of the damage to the knee. We should get a more concrete timeline for his return over the next couple days, but fantasy owners need to start making replacement plans. Jeff Wilson is the favorite to take over as San Francisco's lead RB, but Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price are also worth stashing.

The 49ers lost RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) early in Sunday's loss to the Bears, which left Jeff Wilson Jr. as the clear backfield leader. With rookie RB Tyrion Davis-Price a healthy scratch, Wilson led RBs at 59% playing time and claimed 9 of 15 RB carries. He managed just 22 yards on the ground, adding 8 more on 2 receptions (2 targets). Deebo Samuel served as the other primary -- and only productive -- runner vs. Chicago, including scoring the team's only TD. RB Jordan Mason was active but didn't get onto the field. We'll see about the outlook for Mitchell's injury and who joins Wilson in the backfield. But he looks like the best bet to lead 49ers RBs in opportunities while Mitchell is out.

49ers RB Tyrion Davis-Price is a healthy scratch for today's opener vs. the Bears. Shades of Trey Sermon last year! -- although this one isn't nearly as big a surprise. San Francisco will roll with RBs Jeff Wilson and Jordan Mason behind starter Elijah Mitchell.
